California cops beat up birthday couple
By - ChoaticNeutralGuy
Each of those cops should be fired and charged.
It sucks that I cant find any follow up and this happened in 2019 and the case was in 2020.
Covid added quite a backlog to court cases.
All courts around the U.S. are a joke, sir.
San Jose PD was featured prominently in national news during the George Floyd protests for having more than a few of their officers videotaped savagely beating non-violent protestors. They have a huge issue with excessive force. Hopefully they all lose their jobs. Fragile fat fucks.
The cops face no repercussions, the state might. A hits B, C gets in trouble.
Slaps on the wrist or some light jail time isn't enough for what they did here. It isn't enough for all the lives that they (all cops) have wreaked and taken. They can't be trusted and they have had more than enough chances to unfuck themselves. If they were someone's dog that bit someone. Then they would be required to put the dog down. In this case they should get the same treatment. Everyone with a badge should be placed in-front of a firing squad at this point.
Not every cop bud
But enough are helping to cover up that its grown into a systemic issue
It's the unions that are the problem!!!
You can go to hell with that ignorant crap. When in my LIFETIME has anycop ever pulled his cun to stop a cop from shooting an unarmed person. Until they do they ARE NO GOOD COPS LEFT, and this is the Son of a Detroit Police officer schooling your Ignorance.
It’s all cops are bastards in the same way all confederate soldiers were bastards. Regardless of personal disposition or intent, they all uphold systemic racism and are the violent arm of an oppressive state.
Mate your literally saying cops are as bad as people who were fighting to own slaves listen to yourself ffs
As if the people who are cops today wouldn’t have that position? They’d be the exact types fighting to own slaves
Cops in America literally started as slave catchers
Every cop would forcibly remove a family that couldn’t pay their rent. Or would cooperate with ICE if ordered. And enforces war on drug era policies that were admittedly designed to harm “hippies and blacks”. All cops would and do disproportionately patrol poor and non white neighborhoods, subjecting those residents go harsher scrutiny. Being a bastard is in the nature of the job.
Mate they don’t “choose” to patrol neighborhoods they get assigned please do your research before you go around ranting about “CoPs BaD” you just look like a dumbass
That’s the Nuremberg defense.
perhaps they patrol the areas where most crime's being committed? dunno, I somehow mildly doubt that expensive neighborhoods have a lot wife-beaters / gang-bangers drinking from paper bags littering the streets. wild guess tho, who knows?
Yes, all cops save those that stood up and were killed or fired for not covering up shit. So yes, all cops.
Yes, all cops.
Not literally every German soldier in the camps turned on the gas, but they were all complicit with the holocaust. It's the exact same. Every cop that stands by and doesn't interfere with the "bad cops" is equally guilty.
Are you seriously comparing cops to nazis
Each should be fired, jailed, and made to pay every cent they owe these two, for the rest of their miserable frakking lives.
Trash like this should be subject to the harshest punishments.
Fuck these guys. Only commenting to add visibility how is this not front page stuff...
Haha that's funny
But, like, the sad kind of funny 😕
Yeah the "laugh cause otherwise you'll cry" kinda funny
No, cops should be held to a ***higher*** standard than the general public. Given their use of lethal force(taser), they should be put to death.
Each of those cops should be summarily executed for violating their oath to the people and the constitution, this is war
They were probably promoted. That's how it works.
I'm so fucking sick of this shit being posted to reddit's video player where no one can share it outside reddit. Give us fucking YouTube links you dumbfuck OP. It's easier to spread AND it works better.
There's.... There's a share button literally right under the video?
Try asking again, but without being an ass.
No. It doesn't matter. It keeps happening and will continue to happen. The best of these videos that need to be shared with a wider audience are always like this. It's fucking stupid.
So let me get this straight.
A couple rent out a hotel room for the night for a birthday. They are playing music that is loud. The hotel manager could go up and tell them that the neighbors are saying the music is too loud. And ask them to turn it down. They choose not to do that but immediately call the police in which they ask them to step out and ask for ID. Something that they had no legal right to do. As they were a threat or acting suspiciously. They tell them to leave. Which they comply with. They start packing and everything, while doing that, a police officer tells another to get a riot weapon. Why. The police get irritated as the couple is packing. And say to tase a dude who is complying with everything they have said. So the young lady is protecting her boyfriend from being hit and attacked by. And the police chief is some idiotic statement says the actions were justified. That is when you know the problems start everywhere in that station.
And you wonder why people don't trust cops...
I actually don't wonder that at all, what I wonder is why anyone WOULD trust a cop
What i wonder is how the same people protesting this shit tell me "you don't need a gun to protect yourself"
the fuck i dont
**EDIT** How so many of you were able to create strawmen and argue against concepts i never even implied... you should be ashamed of yourselves. You're a cancer on this country. At no point in time did i suggest shooting the police. Or using a gun to defend yourself against the police. We're discussing how people don't trust the police... so if you don't trust the police... you might believe you need to protect your self, since you can't call the police for help.
That's it. that's a common reality people live in all over the country, they don't trust the police, the know calling the police will likely make things worse, so they don't. That's it. If you thought my comment was suggesting shooting at police it's because you let your own bias influence your reading and that's pathetic in 2021.
Having a gun in that situation would get you killed no doubt.
You and your girl. Undoubtedly.
Way to miss the point entirely
so you have a gun...
might even get a shot off or two...
might even hit someone....
and then they fire back and end up with 48 Bullets in the chest
all fired in selfdefense giving them just another good excuse to keep on rolling
Well... Now is not the time to use the gun. It would be, for instance, a good time to have a gun should you be 100 yards away on some rooftop while the cops are cleaning up the scene of one of their beatings or other street ordeals.... For instance. Then you run into the night. Rinse & repeat and see if people still wanna be cops. Again no suggestions here just repeating some stuff I've heard in Robert Evans' podcast "It Could Happen Here" which I absolutely fucking recommend
Try reading what he said first
Uh huh... and you think the police that do this have any interest in protecting you?
no but honestly despite how cruel and fucked up the mess above was I'd be happy to survive it
No, no. Your logic be damned. Guns always bad remember? Your point doesn't matter at all around here. Watch everyone argue with you
It's insane. They're completely ignoring what I said and creating their own fantasy strawmen, but some how i'm the asshole.
At best, this only applies if you’re white and even then it’s a 70-80% chance you get killed upon them seeing the gun. If you’re anything other than white it’s a 98% chance you immediately get killed.
Also what’s the end goal here? Cops are unjustly harassing you or attacking you so you shoot one or two to defend yourself. You think the court will be like “oh nah bruh you’re good, carry on” no. They’ll throw the book at you for shooting a cop and then some. That’s even if you make it to the courts because we all know once you shoot or kill a cop they’ll just do whatever in their power to kill you for revenge as you took one of their own.
Every person of color should have SEVERAL guns.
Police are worthless thugs with guns
“State sanctioned gang”
> And the ~~police chief~~ **city's attorney** is some idiotic statement says the actions were justified.
An attorney states that this was totally legal.
I want to know what hotel it was.
In the video it shows a Holiday Inn...
in San Jose
Holiday Inn on North First Street.
Minnesota Police are like "yeah, what you want to do is shout "taser taser taser!" and then shoot 'em dead with your glock and claim you feared for your life"
Beyond the station. Get rid of qualified immunity, nationwide. It's out of hand.
"I have a 40 mil in the car". They do this all the time.
She was hit in the head with a baton! That is illegal, Because people have died. I guarantee you know where in the police manual does it state to hit somebody in the head
In this case it’s ten pages of loose leaf stapled together, written in crayon
Jokes on you for thinking there are written words. It’s all pictures for them.
Just one picture with a brown coloured stick figure with a red X through it
“HOW 2 SPOT KRIMINEL”
"The manual is just the manufacturer's *opinion* on how to beat people with the baton." - Most cops, probably.
You can see near the end when the guy is trying to protect his girl, clearly not aggressive towards them. The officer taking straight baseball swings at the guys head and knocks him out. That’s so fucked.
As a European, the police coming to your house/hotel to hit you with batons because of the noise..... it's really weird.
Not something most people in the US find normal either.
People getting beat the fuck down like animals by cops that are supposed to serve and protect. This is bullshit!
These cops are criminals.
They are not there to protect us. https://www.barneslawllp.com/blog/police-not-required-protect
Which is why we need to protect our gun rights
Curious if our loose gun laws lead to cops being more on edge because they just assume most people are carrying and are then more likely to escalate and "fear for their safety"... just wondering.
Since only ~4% of what police do is related to dealing with violence, we can start other organizations to deal with the other 96% of matters, then cut our current police force down. This should stop most of the unnecessary police shootings of innocent people (hopefully)
100% it just makes everything worse.
So we should sacrifice our rights because of police incompetence? No thank you. So long as a non-zero number of guns exist in private hands, legally or illegally, police will still be fearful and claim they thought someone had a gun as justification for their actions.
Nah. Because when they actually are afraid, they don’t act like they did in this video. They sit back and wait.
It does 100%. How would you feel approaching random cars every day? If I had to I'd rather be in Canada than the US.
Probably doesn't actually need to be said but I'm not saying it's right. Cops can be paranoid and that is bad for everyone involved.
Also, I'm curious, if this couple had a gun, if it would have miracoulously de-escalated the situation, or perhaps made it worse. /s
Well more and more liberal/leftists are becoming pro gun because of shit like this. I for one, am a pro gun leftist and used to be very anti gun. But as more and more minorities are targeted by not only police, but crazy bigoted psychos, I have changed my views.
Good god give it a rest, dullard. NO ONE is coming for your right to bear arms. You don’t need an AR
Serve and Protect.....the elite upper class. You forgot that (very important!) detail.
COPS ARE NOT THERE TO HELP YOU
To serve the establishment and protect the status quo. Fixed it for you.
My fellow human... let me tell you the cops are never there to help but to fuck shit up. American cops have low IQs they hulk smash for any reason.
Some will watch this and say “just follow their orders and no one gets hurt” but this video showcases perfectly why we shouldn’t blindly follow the cops. They can be out of line and try to illegally hold you or lie or whatever so they should be questioned or called out for things like not needing to show their ID. You don’t have to comply when they are unreasonable and have no standing to ask you to do certain things
Also just follow orders and no one gets hurt is seriously hard on a human being. That feeling of being powerless when you're in the right is very hard to do.
If a cop ever wants me to follow an unlawful order I hope I don't let my pride get me a bbeating.
How many times do the taxpayers have to pay settlements on behalf of police before the public demands reexamination of policies and practices
Beating or killed ffs
And as Daniel Shaver would tell you, being white and compliant is no guarantee you'll live to tell the tale...
Not to mention that while this couple may have questioned things, they DID comply with everything they were asked/told. They knew it was wrong/sucked, but they did it. And still were beaten/attacked.
Good lord how can bar waitresses do such a better job at deescalation than supposedly trained police? Good thing for body cameras . They need to be standard everywhere
They don’t want to de-escalate. They live for ‘finding’ criminals and forcing their way into peoples’ lives. Truth is, when she slammed the door, cop got his feelings hurt. So he tells the other cop to grab the riot gun so when they further treat someone like shit they get to play with their toys.
These guys sound like marines in a chow hall in a warzone when they talk to each other. I wish more people saw this for what it is: every citizen is a criminal and a threat, if they just pry enough. The citizens are the enemy.
>They live for ‘finding’ criminals
I was in a bar fight a few years ago, I wanted the cops called and charges pressed as the guy has gotten away with being a douche too many times before. In walks a statie smacking his baton into his hand repeatedly "oh it's already over, i wanted to crack some skulls"
Im so sick and tired of this shit.
Not only that, but cops need to be on live feed, and maybe with some form of remote electric shock on them to de-escalate things the proper way.
If they behave like subhumans, literally like animals, then they should treated as much.
That and they should have to pay every cent they stole, by falsely taking up a job they were never going to uphold.
Cops are thieves and criminals. Make no mistake of it.
At 1:13 - look at that asshole with his baton out already. These cops already determined that they wanted to beat these two couples long before the police brutality went down.
For instance, the couple complied and showed them their ID and packed up to leave. However, they're constantly egging them to aggravate them with stupid claims like "you're not packing fast enough".
This is the scariest part of it: the cops have decided that they wanted to abuse their powers and attack two innocent civilians. It's fucking disgusting and nothing will happen to them. At worst they'll get a slap on the wrist.
How are they not charged and sitting in prison with no bail?
At this point if a serial killer emerges targeting police, I'll be rooting for them because I'm so sick of cops. They aren't peace keepers or there to protect you. They're there to abuse power and bully innocent people.
Even the cops know they are wrong. If you watch it through a couple cops look confused as to what is going on. One cop decided to escalate and then mob mentality took hold. This isn't anything different than a rioting mob
We’ve got to break the thin blue line that pulls in the other cops that know better.
It’s so true. It seems in so many of these instances one fool PO does something to escalate the situation and the other cops just back him instead of backing him down. It’s so hard to watch over and over again.
What in the actual fuck....
That is absolutely ridiculous
reminds me of the film crash, lucky they didn't get killed and there was body camera
why did 6 cops need a riot gun in the middle of a hotel? what?
Why did 6 cops show up for a noise complaint that was called in before 9pm? Not one of them witnessed or heard excessive noise coming from the couple’s room. The police caused the woman to slam the door and then used that as an excuse to kick them out of their room. I’d be paranoid if that happened to me. I hope the couple is ok.
It should have ended with with the noise violation period. Done. But cops always want to pull their dicks out and wave it around. Fucking douchebags. I hope someone holds each one of them one day and beats the shit of them.
“He hopes to be a jail guard” hope he reconsiders
Cops & jail guards are two completely different professions.
Not in terms of likelihood of the abuse of power. They both top the lists.
I know wikipedia says that the results are called into question, but the reasons they're called into question are reasons that still fit in a prison guard situation. It mirrors a prison too well to be applied to pure authority concepts. The main discrediting you'll hear about the experiment was that it was inhumane, the results were far more extreme than most would expect
Yeah this doesn’t need to get complicated at all. One progression is a police officer, the other is a correctional officer. Literally two different things.
I’m not really interested in seeing who’s more aggressive than the other.
They’re literally just two different professions. Not everything needs to be a debate.
"One animal is a Labrador, the other is a Retriever. Literally two different things.
I'm not really interested in nuance, I'm sticking to this one tiny detail so I feel like I'm the only one who understands the situation"
God people on Reddit are weird. All I literally said was that these two professions are two different things & then you came out of nowhere to start an argument. Christ what a weird thing to do.
Why did you say that the two "are completely different" if you weren't trying to make a point? And if you were trying to make a point, then why is it weird if I do the same in response? You contradicted the point above you, I contradicted the point you made.
Do you honestly not have anything else going for you in your life that you have to come scroll thru message boards until you find something to argue about? Is there nothing better that you could be doing with your time?
Congrats, you did a thing online that most people won’t remember in a weeks time.
Here’s an award: 🏆
...do you think you aren't arguing rn? Do you think you didn't try to argue on your first post? You aren't above this.
Its ok to be wrong.. you dont have to throw a fit
Is this actually how you respond to people that disagree with you?
Right? What an odd wish for a person.
A city attorney said it's a reasonable thing to smash a woman's knees with a baton when there's like 6 huge officers and she is totally unarmed?
I used to give police the benefit of the doubt. How naive I was back in the day.
This is why you never open the door for cops, ever.
Disgusting...but not unexpected at all
What is acab ?
All Cops Are Bad/Bastards
The blue code of silence means that there is no such thing as a “good” cop because “good” cops cover for “bad” cops.
I'm really starting to believe that ACAB.
Good, anyone who sees this shit happening all the time and still thinks its just a few bad apples and in no way a systemic issue are ignorant.
That phrase is used often and also never finished. "A few bad apples spoils the bunch" is the full phrase, meaning it only takes one bad cop doing the wrong thing in any situation to make all of the rest of the cops with him/her do the wrong thing, too. It does *not* mean, "one bad apple/cop doesn't mean they are all bad" which is implied when they only say "one bad apple" in the news.
I'm not directing any of this at you, by the way. It's just my general anger when I see "one/few bad apples" in a news article when the cops do something shitty like they did to this couple.
Did the rest of the cops try to tell the one who was in the wrong to stand down? No? Then they are *all* bad.
Absolutely disgraceful, San Jose needs to fire those officers and put the entire department on notice if they think this was a reasonable escalation of force
Fuck The Police, worthless morons who got bullied in school, sadly the bullying wasn't physical enough, these pigs should be dead
It's said that I have to say this, but "at least" this got filmed, published and showed on the news. Still so sad.
I fucking hate pigs
Man fuck the cops. Shit like this and unarmed people get killed but people don't see the issues going on with most of those within their departments? Come on man
All cops are bad. Not a single good one. The are a terroristic cult immune to the law. The all protect each other.
This makes me furious. These police officers should be imprisoned, racist dogs that they are.
Dirty cops. These grown ass adults are acting like children with badges. Sad to see how incompetent these bastards are at managing a noise complaint.
This was August 14, 2020. I couldn't find any updates on the lawsuit or police involved.
I’ll always try to find a reason to defend the cops but they were wrong the second they unlawfully asked for his ID. The situation was escalated on the couples side when she slammed the door but it still shouldn’t have ended like this.
America land of the free
This needs to get upvoted and reposted until cnn network puts it up. It happened in 2019 and this is the first I heard of this.
Let's be honest, the local government didn't do anything because there's little attention to it. Only way these police departments do anything is when they know the spotlight is on them and there's video.
The majority of the public is sick and tired of cops who are little bitches on power trips that go around abusing their power and hurting people for the smallest thing.
Stop resisting and let me assault you!
This needs more coverage.
What. The fuck. Is wrong with these cops. Holy fucking fuck.
Situation escalation 101.
All those problem will disappear the moment police unions are declared illegal.
Tax payers are going to lose not these cops.
Cops should need to buy their own insurance against being sued. No cop can be hired or deployed without that insurance.
Indeed ... we cannot get a car registered without showing proof of insurance.
Police departments keep hiring thugs like these idiot cops. That is what you get when hiring bullies with a high school education and low IQ.
paid leave until things settle down. than its back on the force to continue as normal
How the fuck have americans put up with this shit?? The cope have so much power they can act like a fucking jock bully from an 80s movie?
Seriously, fucking cunts.
One trick that police used to do is ask you to come outside, then arrest you for "drunk in public"
Fuckin ! The whole fucking injustice system needs burned down and rebuilt
A gang of fucking stone cold thugs. NWA was right.
Truly I hope these two can live happily together. They seem like they really care for one another. They deserve better.
Any cop who does something like this deserves equal treatment. Fuck em. They deserve a severe beating.
Hopefully we see more accountability across the nation and a reform that fits and not some new private company, that does not swear to uphold the constitution.
cops are actually braindead
> Each of those cops should be fired
…out of a canon and straight into the fucking sea
This shit is down right retarded I don’t think acab but these make me want to think so
Please think it hard
I think it's a 'merica thing. 2nd Amendment pushers and hyper-reactive police seem to go hand in hand
My grain of salt
god i fucking hate cops
As soon as I saw it was San Jose PD I knew it was going down
Bless this couple, I hope they’re still together cause God knows those cops are..
Ok, fuck Holiday Inn. Never staying there again. We need an anti-holiday inn song now. And of course, police can fuck off, ACAB 4ever.
I can almost 100% guarantee you they were scared of him because of his size, and race and with that overreacted.
They're also wasn't the need for that many officers on a noise complaint. The response in of itself states clearly that they were not capable of diffusing the situation.
You can tell they arent scared at all. They are just power tripping and dont like anyone that doesnt do every little thing they say and treat them like the gods they think they are.
Yes. That many cops, with several methods of lethal and non lethal protection are afraid of a single guy and his lady.
Cops are trash, the badge is pretty much the tag that identifies them as such.
I would be scared of him because of his size if it were just me and he were behaving aggressively. If you're afraid of someone who's presented no threat when you outnumber them 4 to 1, you're a pathetic little weenie who should never be allowed to have a badge or gun.
I hope cops start getting hunted when they do this shit. Find them at their homes, break in, and beat them in front of their loved ones like they do to us every single fucking day. Fuck the police. Period. This game of “Well it’s not every cop....” fuck that, yes it is and until other cops start doing something about it, the people need to.
One guy tried - he was ex-mil and ex-cop.
They blew his ass up with an explosive drone.
This is the craziest shit.....does a police uniform in the USA give you a God complex or what?
It's the same as owning an obnoxious lifted truck. Same syndrome.
Biggest gang this nation has ever known. A nationally funded gang that is...#BlueLiesMatter
If this had happened in Norway those cops would be without a job and possibly in jail.
And your point is?
his point is american cops abuse their powers and get away for free.
police wanted to have some fun and sport, it is boring these days. they needed some action. these two are lucky they didn't get shot down and killed.
Like that guy who begged for his life, and got shot with an assault rifle with certain words inscribed in the receiver by a pig on the hunt.
Cops really don’t deserve to make any money whatsoever and should not be given any weapon on any form
As much as it seems like an open and shut case, I do want to see the full body cam footage. The random cuts are a bit suspicious and I would like to get the full story before i get my pitchfork. Especially when its their lawyer who is picking out which parts of the body cam to show
what else could you possibly see, or look for, to justify the officer's actions?
