VIDEO: This Man Had a Plant in His Pocket, So Cops Beat the Hell Out of Him

Baton Rouge, LA — A new video of a man getting beaten by three Baton Rouge cops exposes the brutal nature of America’s war on a plant. As states across the union continue to bravely defy the federal government’s Schedule 1 classification of marijuana, this recent case out of Baton Rouge, LA, serves as a horrid reminder of the atrocities police will still commit while going after those who dare possess this plant.

On April 10th, Sam Dorosan Jr., 38, had done nothing morally wrong. He had hurt no one when three cops with the Baton Rouge Police department targeted him.

That Sunday night, officers were conducting patrols in the area after reports of a shooting. According to Sgt. Don Coppola, a BRPD spokesman, the officers approached Dorosan outside the AM Mart because they claimed he was acting “nervously” and grabbed at his pockets.

The video below shows exactly why Dorosan had every right to be nervous, as he was about to receive a brutal beating at the hands of BRPD. Apparently, for the BRPD, acting nervously is reasonable articulable suspicion and gave them probable cause to detain and search Dorosan.

According to police, Dorosan, who was on probation, pleaded with the officers, telling them that he did not want to go back to jail for the plant they found in his pocket. However, police allegedly had nothing of it and moved in for the takedown.


Naturally, as three armed men began attacking him, Dorosan ‘resisted’ — also known as protecting himself from the men with guns who were trying to kidnap him.

The video does not show the beginning of the stop. However, as it begins, one officer appears to strike Dorosan before an officer yells “put your hands behind your back.”

The next thing we see, police proceed to unleash their fury on the man for not wanting to be kidnapped and thrown in a cage for the plant he had in his pocket.

Dorosan’s ‘resisting’ was little more than protecting his face as the cop’s fists struck him over and over and over.

Once they beat him into submission, Dorosan was arrested. Police then used the plant in his pocket as justification for the beating and charged him with obstruction of justice, possession of marijuana, resisting an officer, and probation or parole violation.

Coppola told that Advocate that internal affairs may launch an investigation. However, no officers were placed on administrative leave.

As the Rouge Collection reported, Together Baton Rouge released a report on disparities in drug possession enforcement in February. The report shows that zip codes with higher black populations are the areas where officers make the most arrests for simple possession of marijuana, even though data says blacks and whites use drugs at the same rate.

Sam Dorosan was arrested for simple possession, which turned into an unnecessary assault by two BRPD officers. The data provided by Together Baton Rouge suggest this is a problem in Baton Rouge that must be addressed — and incidents like what happened to Sam Dorosan are evidence of this.

Sadly, Sam Dorosan’s case is one that plays out in cities across the United States. Every day, cops enforcing the immoral war on pot, beat, kidnap, cage, and kill people over this plant.

Last September, in Tampa, Florida, a life was taken by cops in this senseless war. This time, an unarmed man sitting in a bedroom with two grams of weed was murdered by state agents seeking out this plant.

A military-style raid took place at the home of Levonia Riggins, 22, by a SWAT team looking for “illegal narcotics.” Riggins was gunned down in his home because cops arrest people for cannabis.

in 2015, an aspiring teenager, Zachary Hammond, was murdered in cold blood by a Seneca police officer who thought arresting people for marijuana made him a hero. Sgt. Tiller, the cop who killed Hammond, has yet to face a single charge.

The list goes on.

    Seems like any hungover law student could get this thrown out of court for lacking anything resembling the concept of “probable cause.” There’s a good possibility we haven’t seen any body/dash cam footage because it would show Mr. Dorosan standing around doing literally nothing but being black.

    “He looked nervous” is a pretty weak excuse to detain and search somebody so maybe with a little media exposure, this bullshit won’t stick.

    • IceTrey

      It’s reasonable suspicion to detain. PC is for arrest.

      • The Cat’s Vagina

        I kind of doubt that. Otherwise, the Fourth Amendment wouldn’t be worth its own ink. Cops can’t just detain and search a person because they “look nervous,” ESPECIALLY if the cop doesn’t know this person on a casual basis. Without knowing a person, how the hell can you tell when they look nervous and when they’re relaxed.

        Lots of people just naturally “look nervous” (I’m one of them) so are you honestly saying that those people have no Fourth Amendment rights because fuck them, “PC is for arrest”?

        There’s a REASON stop-and-frisk is illegal in most states and I’m pretty sure Louisiana is one of them.

        • IceTrey

          No. Cops must have a reasonable suspicion supported by specific articulatable facts that a person has committed, is committing or is about to commit a crime before they can legally detain you. When enough facts or evidence is gathered it reaches the point of having probable cause to make an arrest. Reasonable suspicion is to detain, probable cause is to arrest.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            Do explain what’s “reasonably suspicious” about someone looking nervous when a bunch of cops start eyeballing them? Most judges are smart enough to know that’s a bullshit excuse for “we just hassled some random guy” and will throw that shit out at the slightest challenge.

          • IceTrey

            It isn’t. I was just explaining that you were using the phrase probable cause incorrectly.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            That’s probably why they run me off with the varmint broom whenever I stand around the courthouse giving out free legal advice!

          • Dan Quixoté

            “Varmint broom” – good one. Everyone should have one.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            Usually, it’s just a demoted Kitchen Broom.

          • Zackknowitall

            I was just explaining you are using reasonable suspicion incorrectly

          • Thebob

            Actually those judges aren’t that smart and lack massive amounts of common sense….

          • Zackknowitall

            Let’s say it correctly reasonable articulable suspicion of a crime.

          • Thebob

            PC is for searching/searches…But yes RS is less than PC…

          • IceTrey

            No. If you are legally detained under RS they can pat you down outside your clothes to check for weapons. If you are arrested under PC they can search you completely.

          • Thebob

            UM no, you cannot be Searched unless there is PC for an arrest, you do not have to show ID, you do not have to talk or answer questions period…Unless you are being Arrested which is what DETAINED is…Violation of the 4th Amendment…It is just “common” place for sheep to obey their herd mentality that cops are your friend they are the “good guys”….ALL WRONG…Hence why if you know your rights you can skirt through check points as they are unconstitutional…

            Regardless what actions LEO’s take, they cannot just walk up to you on the street and search you and ask for your ID….Well than can but you don’t have to comply, until you are under arrest for something…

          • IceTrey

            UM no. If you are legally detained they can pat you down outside your clothes for weapons.

          • IceTrey

            Detained is not the same as arrest either.

        • Zackknowitall

          Even knowing a person well is not a substitute for reasonable articulable suspicion of a crime

        • Thebob

          PC can be anything made up by the Cop…a sweater covering something in your back seat is PC for a search….You want to make real change then stop allowing these libtard judges to legislate from the bench…Or Sanctuary Cities who are dropping Felony Crimes down to Misdemeanors for illegals so they won’t face deportation even violent crimes, like the man who beat his wife for years and years causing disfigurement….YEAH GO NYC AND SAN FRAN LOONY BINS…

      • Zackknowitall

        You’re wrong it’s ” reasonable articulable suspicion of a “”””CRIME”””” to detain someone. Looking nervous relates to a crime how?

    • Mother Earth

      The reason he looked nervous was he assumed he was to be another statistic murdered by another racial hatred cop.

      • The Cat’s Vagina

        I don’t think he was afraid for his life. The simple truth is, EVERYONE “looks nervous” when The Police takes a sudden and unified interest in them!

  • captainsgirl

    Those aren’t cops, those are psycho’s who are working for higher up psycho’s. Yet, President Trump is going to change everything. How? He just gave the police more power. He’s lost my trust.

      “He’s lost my trust.”
      Really, he did? He NEVER had mine!

  • G’ma G

    It isn’t united when I can do what this man did without fear of a beat down just because I am geographically on the part of the land commonly known as the State of Washington.

    • 174thandvyse

      It is a DOCUMENTED FACT that people, especially the cops, from the “Saouth” * are Mentally inferior to liberated, REAL Americans. This is easy to test…just ask some “Saoutherner” *, especially a cop, about Marijuana, and they will say, “Duh”!!!
      *The South and Southerner were spelled as “Saouth” and “Saoutherner” on purpose, due to their limited patterns of speech and thought. Truly inferior beings!

      • Thebob

        Liberalism is a metal disorder…Proven fact….And to assume that someone is dumb just cause they are from the South is a bit of a racist bigotted statement just like saying “darkies are dumb”..”lesser evolved human”…You libtards are the only racists left in this country….Facts suck don’t they Snowflake?

        • 174thandvyse

          Why can’t I respond to the comment? Why are you saying that I must “authenticate the user or provide author_name and author_email”

          I do not understand what that means.

  • Mother Earth

    Nixon’s war has between North Vietnam, Cambodia killed more innocent people but their iron fisted regime wasn’t happy ending it there they decided to declare another war on their very own people whilst the crooked system was flying cocaine into America they decided to shine the light away from themselves and onto their citizens for simply smoking a herb that promotes Peace, the power corrupted system doesn’t want Peace as their is no money to make from Peace so they declare war on Countries and citizens with phoney lies and propaganda.

  • This was going on before camera phones y’all save ya outrage if this is brand new to you we don’t need or want it

  • 174thandvyse

    Oh God, but I DO hate cops! All of these PIGS are too lazy to do their jobs, so they go after marijuana users, assuming that it will be an easy bust. I hope to (the TRUE) God that one day some pigs try to make an easy bust, but that it turns out to be much harder than they thought! That would be justice!

    • Thebob


      • 174thandvyse

        Yeah, I “like” the way you stay “on-topic”! I’m talking about the Drug War, and you go off on a tangent about people living off entitlements! Damn boy, but the Welfare State must really bother you! Good!

        • Thebob

          No, I think people who deserve to be taken care of should only on a temp basis unless they can’t care for themselves…Most people on welfare are just lazy like yourself who want things given to them and not have to work for it..You want an abortion fine go pay for it yourself your choice to have sex unprotected deal with the choice you made…Just like the person who chose to rob a bank suffers the consequences of that choice…You choose to be jobless your choice deal with the consequences…Just like the heroin addict who chose to shoot up deal with the consequences of those personal choices….Should they be locked up for being an addict nope not at all, but doesn’t mean I should be forced to care for that person either, free will is a bitch ain’t it? You want freedom to live your life just like I do, except you want Gov’t to give you the permission or force you to do so along with holding your hand out along the way, like you deserve it…You want something go earn it…You don’t want to be poor then go do something about that…You don’t like the Gov’t you chose, then run for office…The only one responsible for your life is you and you are the only one who can make changes to it….

            As Mr. Spock once told Dr. McCoy, “stop your leaps of illogic”. You don’t know me at all, and yet you just exhibited that “hive mentality” that you accuse others of having. Fox News, and your right-wing butt-buddies tell you things about Po’ folks (you can call us the REAL Americans!), and you believe every lie that they tell you.

            Myth no. 1 — “Most people on welfare are just lazy like yourself who want things given to them and not have to work for it”.

            Truth No. 1 — if you really believe that then you are crazy. Most people on Welfare are desperate, not lazy. I once received Welfare, about 40 years ago, on a TEMPORARY basis, and let me tell you, I didn’t load up on groceries and liquor, and drive away in a Cadillac.

            Myth No. 2 — “You want an abortion fine go pay for it yourself your choice to have sex unprotected deal with the choice you made”

            Truth No. 2 — C’mon, stop it! You wanna STOP other people from controlling their own bodies, period. You don’t even want people to pay for the abortions themselves, you wanna STOP them from doing it, so stop running that bullshit, okay?

            Myth No. 3 — “Just like the person who chose to rob a bank suffers the consequences of that choice”

            Truth No. 3 — oh, so you’re comparing a bank robber with a woman who gets an abortion, eh? You’re weird! Stop listening Rush, he’s twisting your mind!

            Myth No. 4 — “You choose to be jobless your choice deal with the consequences”

            Truth No. 4 — who says I’m jobless? I own a DJ service, but I do not think that you, or any of your boys would hire me, since your kind hates Disco music. Your kind (and you KNOW which “kind” that is!) simply cannot dance, you’re so awkward, and uncoordinated.

            Myth No. 5 — “You want freedom to live your life just like I do, except you want Gov’t to give you the permission”

            Truth No. 5 — The problem is that the kinda “Government” that you approve of, will NOT give me the permission to control my own body. I don’t want the government to pay for my lifestyle…I want them to stop persecuting me for living my life as I chose

          • Thebob

            WOW you really can’t comprehend anything I stand for at all..WHAT DOES I DO NOT LIKE BIG GOV’T LIKE YOU DO can you not understand??? HUH WHAT??? I do not like our Gov’t I do not like the Retarded LIBTARD DEMS I do not like the RINO GOP’s scum bags…My Govt is limited by the Constitution and is for the people by the people, not this Faux crap you call our Gov’t it isn’t this Gov’t is for the Gov’t and that is it, it isn’t for the people…My Gov’t doesn’t waste money on Unconstitutional programs, The Federal Gov’t CANNOT BE INVOLVED IN CHARITY, which is what welfare is…I don’t watch Foxnews don’t even have that channel nor do I watch CNN Clinton News Network…..You are just blinded by your hate that is all…I believe in the Constitution as it was written that ALL MEN are created equal…What you choose to do with that is up to YOU not the Gov’t…The Constitution is designed to limit the GOV’T NOT THE PEOPLE….Maybe just maybe you might understand this if you actually have read the entire constitution instead of trying to figure out how to get “free” hand outs…And my opinions of people are my own developed from my own experiences and my own observations…BTW I grew up probably more poor than you, bankrupt family business with 8 kids who didn’t take Gov’t hand outs…We use our community and church food banks to scrap by…Try having the IRS Steal all your parents money from their bank accounts…Even then we were still blessed…You nor any “Poor” American knows what it is truly like to be poor…Your version of poor is Gov’t paid for home, cell phone and they provide your food for you…Yeah that’s really poor, only poor choices by most people…Any who takes Gov’t handouts is their choice to do so, what you do with that is also their choice to either stay on and feel sorry for themselves or suck it up and work hard to get them selves up and out, their choice…Their Free will to make something of themselves or not…Real life example Dr. Ben Carson…Hell I’ll even throw Usane Bolt into that hat…Ain’t nobody ever get ahead sitting on their ass claiming whoa is me….

          • Thebob

            This is just a reflection of your own hate and your personal view/belief/opinion…Look in a mirror dude…I think you should leave NYC or whatever hell whole you live in and try being an American…Oh wait wasn’t it your Mayor the Libtard who decided how much Soda you can drink??? I didn’t think you liked Gov’t telling you what you can or can’t put into your body??? Sorry dude you once again are clueless on American History…Your Gov’t has no problem allowing Lead into our water supply, Flint, MI Michigan ran by libtards for the last 50 years…Flint, Detroit, Ran by LIBTARDS for the last 50 years…Yet this same Gov’t that says you can only have a 8 oz. Soda allows Toxic metals and poisons into our water supply like lead, chlorine, Fluoride and that same Gov’t says this is good for you cause we know best…LIBTARD Logic….You are single minded short sighted and full of hate…Not a nice way to live life at all…Blaming your lack of motivation on the Gov’t is sad…The only one keeping you down is you.
