flowers

Perris, CA — In the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the State before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice. A video published to Facebook this week shows a Perris police officer assault a woman who was selling flowers on the side of the road — because she apparently failed to pay the State for the privilege.

The video does not tell the entire story. However, it starts as the officer is grabbing a woman who is holding multiple sets of flowers, clearly arranged for sale on the roadside. So, based on the multiple instances previously covered by the Free Thought Project, we can assume that she was approached for the selling of flowers without a permit, especially considering the officers are not from ICE.

As the video begins, the motorcycle officer is grabbing the woman by the arm. The woman, who apparently doesn’t speak English, is clearly terrified.

Not wanting to be assaulted or otherwise extorted by the Perris police department, the woman pulled her arm back and tried to move away. She was still holding onto her flowers, indicating that she was in no way a threat to the officer.

However, as the woman attempted to move backward, away from the officer, he grabbed her by her hair and attacked her.

Advertisment

Within seconds, the officer had tripped the woman — who was still trying to protect her flowers as they likely cost her much needed money — and was on top of her.

The video is appalling as the cop kneels down on the woman and shoves his gloved hand over her mouth. The woman begins yelling out in Spanish as another cop joins in on the arrest — allegedly over flowers.

As the officers roll her over to place the handcuffs on her, we can see just how terrified the woman is, as she urinated on herself.

The Free Thought Project reached out to the Perry Police Department to ask them for a statement about this video. However, we have yet to hear back from them.

Some of the comments on the video below, are almost as disheartening as the video itself. Multiple people attempted to justify this assault and battery by claiming the woman should’ve had a permit.

taxes, it;s called getting a permit, pay taxes, oh and dont resist when officer gives you a ticket. Is that person even in the country legally?

Another FB user, Eady T, wrote:

Selling flowers without a vendor’s license is a crime. Petty but crime non the less. So is resisting arrest. 

Sadly, Americans are being conditioned to think that in the land of the free, people are somehow morally wrong if they try to make a dollar without first being extorted by the state.

The bottom line is — in modern day police state, USA — exchanging goods and services is a crime unless the State gets their cut. We are told that this is for our safety and that we could all die if a brown woman sells flowers on the corner. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Morality does not equal reality — and the video below is more than enough evidence to prove this.

Here is the link to the Perris police department’s Facebook page, if you’d like to leave them a scathing but peaceful review.

Sadly, this is one of many incidents in which people trying to earn a few bucks have been attacked or otherwise kidnapped by police ‘protecting society.’

In May, the Alameda County Sheriff’s department posted a photo of a deputy arresting a man for selling fruits and vegetables on the roadside and attempted to justify the arrest. When people read the department’s justification, they lashed out — peacefully — to let them know what they were doing is wrong.

In June, a 38-year-old homeless man was attempting to earn some honest money by providing a much-desired service to the residents of Kennewick, Washington when he was threatened with extortion and arrest by the local police department, which effectively ended his enterprise. After the Kennewick Police Department threatened the homeless man and prevented him from making a living, they took to Facebook to shamelessly brag about it.

    Just in case Rachel B. you are walking around with Lambs Wool Over Your Head. Russia, Iran & That Demented Syrian Dentist. IS DOING ! The exact same thing, only to me far worse, than anything the US. may be doing in Syria. Who drops barrel bombs on it’s cities and people, and justifies it by calling them terrorist ? Who dropped gas bombs from it’s Government Supplied Jet’s on Civilians ? And who is fighting and supplying a war fought by proxy in Syria besides the Country Turkey ?

    I may not like what Trump is doing in all things including Syria. Or for that matter in other places that support State Sponsored Terrorism. Like Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, and I do feel bad about the innocents that die as the results of War’s fought, for not much more than Crazy Rebels and Religious Nut Cases whose only understanding is for death, as the end results to their common cause of Anarchy.

    But it was not Trump who started the mess in the first place, but he may be the one who ends it. For you to just harp about the end results, is to me like burying your head in the sand, and saying *I wish it would Just Go Away!* Which is not smart or very practical, if you stop and consider the consequences of what might happen, if we just folded up our tent and drones and left, to become alone in our purity of thought and world morality. How moralistic and noble for you, and how deadly for all thouse who are leaving thouse Countries by the 100’s of thousand, to get away from their Countries Governments Sponsored Insanity !

    I am pretty sure that where i live if there was an invasion coming or bombs dropping, the women and children and finally all civilians would be evacuated. It is pretty common for muslims to use women and children as shields instead.
