Unread post by billy.pilgrim » Tue Mar 06, 2018 1:37 pm

clicked on some old sites today and ran into this crap. It may be here already, but these cops are scum.
arrest, beat and taze a man for jaywalking. dude was lucky they didn't shoot him when he ran, but they had already far exceeded being anything but racist pigs before he ran.

The APD Chief, who had kept much of this covered up, now wants an investigation . . . into who leaked the video.

It's gone national, just saw a story on Headline News.

ACLU is involved, too. They're focusing on NC being one of the most restrictive states about releasing body cam (and dash cam?) video to the public.

I wonder if he was actually jaywalking.

I read an article a few weeks back about how many people in the US are wrongly charged with jaywalking, merely for crossing the street in the middle of the block. This isn't illegal in many states when there aren't traffic lights at both ends of the block.

Wikipedia: Jaywalking: United States:
Following the Uniform Vehicle Code, state codes often do not prohibit a pedestrian from crossing a roadway between intersections if at least one of the two adjacent intersections is not controlled by a signal, but stipulate that a pedestrian not at a crosswalk must yield the right of way to approaching drivers.

Yep.
Asheville, NC Codes

ARTICLE VI. - PEDESTRIANS

Sec. 19-229. - Duty to use crosswalk.

Between adjacent intersections at which traffic control signals are in operation, pedestrians shall not cross at any place except in a marked crosswalk.
However, I think I can see a traffic signal. I can't tell whether it's half a block or a block and a half away, though.

I never knew this:
Sec. 19-230. - Use of right half of crosswalks.

Pedestrians shall move, whenever practicable, upon the right half of crosswalks.
I wonder if anyone's ever been ticked for walking on the left.

U-turns and driving the wrong way on a one way street are legal in florida as long as there is no on-coming traffic unless specifically posted. Cops don't seem to care if kids or black people are involved. mostly too much trouble to fight without an attorney, unless the cop "smelled" something and trashed the car.

They're also revising body cam policy, though the real issue is with the 'coverup for cops' state law.

More:

After police beating, organizations want more data in hands of public

Three county commissioners release joint statement on racial bias, use of force

New police beating video clearly shows chokehold, aftermath

Too early to say how all the dust will settle, but it is an activist city with sympathetic and responsive government, way better than my Hooterville.

If I lived in Asheville I would be with the activists demanding that the City do more faster. However, Asheville has probably already done more faster than most cities. Don't even get me going on my Hendersonville and Henderson County.

This is a fascinating take on what went down. Cecil Bothwell is a longtime, highly respected Asheville lefty.

The case for keeping APD Chief Tammy Hooper

Note in the comments that he takes issue with the headline. The print version headline is his preferred “Right clicks, Left jumps".

Maybe the thread title is a dead giveaway? Maybe because in many instances you expressed a hatred for LEO's? I just thought that the news of another cop headed to the promised land would put a smile on your face.

Speaking of sovereign citizens; ain't they a hoot! How many times have I heard "am I being illegally detained"? And I say "no, dumbass, you're being arrested for possession of (or selling) narcotics". :lol:
