“We’ll get CPS to take your baby!”

Sandusky, OH — A mother and father were on their way home with their 2 week old baby when they were stopped by Sandusky police officers.

Andre Stockett, the father and the passenger in the vehicle, and the man who took the video, has a good understanding of his rights when dealing with police.

Despite the police pulling over the vehicle, for an alleged “traffic violation,” they do nothing to the driver. Her license is run and it comes back valid so they have nothing on them, yet like bullies on the playground they begin ganging up on Stockett.

Stockett has committed no crime and has not been suspected of committing a crime, so he lawfully refuses to identify himself. This assertion of his rights does not go over well with the bullies on the playground, so Officer Denny throws a temper tantrum.

Advertisment

The K-9 unit is brought in.

As several media outlets have reported, K-9’s are not only often poorly trained, they are frequently wrong. They can also be taught to alert on cue. 

Stockett says that he does not consent to any searches, which is well within his rights. However, Officer Denny knows how to avert these rights; bring in the drug dog.

Unfortunately in Illinois v. Caballes, the Supreme Court ruled that police do not need reasonable suspicion to use drug dogs to sniff a vehicle during a legitimate traffic stop and that a drug dog alerting to a vehicle allows them to search it.

Stockett could have contended that this was no longer a “legitimate traffic stop” but it seems that nothing was going to stop these jackboots from arresting someone.

After the dog allegedly ‘alerted’ to the vehicle, Stockett and his wife are told to get out of the vehicle. When they refuse, because they have a 2 week old infant in the back seat, these thugs threaten to take their baby!

“We’ll get CPS to take your baby!”

At this point in the video, if your blood is not boiling you are not a human being. The police continue to make up new reasons why they were pulled over and why they are being detained/arrested. It is absolutely infuriating.

The asininity peaks when officer Denny backtracks and tells the family that he originally pulled them over because their lights weren’t on, but it is clearly daylight outside.

Eventually under duress and the threat of violence, the family is forced to exit the vehicle. Stockett was arrest for, wait for it….wait for it, obstruction of justice. These harassing tyrants have the audacity to claim that it was this family who was obstructing justice and not their jackbooted thuggery. Unbelievable.

No drugs were found.

The only thing absent from this video is the Sandusky police tasering and beating the family, however the threat of stealing someone’s child stings way more than a baton every could.

Stockett, for good reason, says he plans to fight the charges of obstruction. Please share this article to let other police officers know that when they violate people’s rights they will be exposed.

            That is obvious, judging from the replies to my comments. This site is full of methane.

    Fucks those [NOPE]…….using a dog is a search……and they can alert on cue or alert on legal drugs too…….refusing a search is In no way any kind of admission of guilt or innocence……..fuck this pos.

  • zyworski

    You have the right to remain silent, so use it and do not talk to cops. On the other hand the cop is going to look stupid if he pulls a car over and can’t identify the people that he made contact with. You should identify yourself as a courtesy, but once again you should not talk to cops.

    • REALConservative

      identify as a courtesy? Fuck you.

      The cop already knew who he was…he ran his name four minutes before the stop.

      • livefire1

        Depends whos name the car is registered in. Maybe you dont want to provide ID for courtesy’s sake but for the sake of deescalation you might. The cops see not providing ID as challenging them and then they take things to the next level. If you’re ok with that and are willing to be possibly detained and/or arrested and fight this out in court….that’s cool, but you have to count the cost and make your own personal decision. No one said cops play nice. Here’s a good page to check out! https://www.flexyourrights.org/faqs/when-can-police-ask-for-id/

        • REALConservative

          Wrong.

          It is not MY obligation to surrender my rights to “de-escalate.” It is the gov’t burden to avoid escalation in the first place, by not executing unconstitutional stops and lying to citizens.

          So how sad is it that the cops see the exercising of our rights as defined by the Constitution as a challenge? Do you not see how that means they are explicitly doing their job the wrong way?

          I am willing to be detained. I have been detained. Those poor idiots who made the mistake of keeping me at the side of the road endured nothing but pure mockery and humiliation from me for 45 minutes before being forced to let me go without ever identifying who I was. It was golden.

          • livefire1

            It seems you have a reading comprehension issue. I never said you or anyone else have an obligation to surrender your rights. You DO have an obligation to know the laws of your state and act accordingly. I completely agree with your second paragraph…it IS pathetic that cops see people exercising their rights as a challenge and its the wrong attitude. However, let me ask you this,….would you be so steadfast in your stance if you had your 2 week old baby in the car like the gentleman in the video and the cops threatened arrest and seizure of you child by CPS (he was in the end arrested). That’s not an empty threat and they will do that…..legal or not! Im glad you were victorious in your confrontation with police. In any case, one could state their name or show an ID……after that refuse to answer questions and give no consent to search!

          • REALConservative

            I don’t have a reading comprehension problem, you are just a fucking idiot.

            There isn’t a law anywhere that requires someone to carry ID if they are not driving, and no law where someone has to prove their identity if there is no probable cause for criminal activity.

            Of course I would be steadfast. No gov’t employee is going to threaten to take my child away to get me to surrender my rights. Now the cop lost two months pay and has a drop dead letter in his file…and the department is likely to write a fat check to settle.

            Only cowards would find a reason to not push back.

          • OhBoy

            In Oregon you have to have an ID on you, check state laws 😉 calm down, geez, he was just clarifying what his comment meant…. since you missed the point.

          • REALConservative

            Nope…not true.

            Not required in ANY state to “have an ID on you” unless you are driving.

          • OhBoy

            Not true, but ok 🙂

          • REALConservative

            It is true…but you are free to show me legislation proving otherwise. If it is law, then it should be something we can reference.

            Unless you are going to say it’s one of those laws that really isn’t written down anywhere and people are just supposed to know it.

          • Alexthekay

            That’s nice. Sandusky is not IN Oregon. Maybe you should learn the laws for the jurisdiction you’re discussing (and, no, we Ohioans are not obliged to carry ID everywhere we go).

          • OhBoy

            Someone had stated that no state requires you to have an ID, I was letting them know that was not the case. Thank you for your reply though 🙂

          • Damiana

            No, I think the reading comprehension problem is yours here. The Conservative is correct, in my opinion. If something is your right (in the case, the right to refuse identification) then there should be ZERO moral, social, and/or legal pressure to relinquish that right to keep someone from being an asshole. It’s on the cops not to be assholes – it’s not on us to appease them so they won’t be abusive.

            Would you tell a raped and battered housewife to just stop saying “no” when her husband wants sex? If not, how is this any different? She has every RIGHT to say no, so do you think she has an obligation not to so her husband won’t “escalate” the situation?

        • zyworski

          You’re right cops can arrest you at any time with no reason for “investigative purposes” it is best to deploy your rights diplomatically.

          • Alexthekay

            In other words, don’t expect to have any rights unless some whimsical jackass who shouldn’t be on any police force decides to let you have them that day.

        • Sharon Johnson

          It is the cop’s job to deescalate a situation. There was nothing these people could or should have done that would have changed the outcome. Why were they stopped? If for a traffic violation, why were they talking to him? He wasn’t driving? Why did they need to know who the passenger was? All of this is BS and you are suggesting courtesy would make a difference. They should never have been pulled over. Once he checked her license she should have been free to leave. What was the purpose of harassing these people? They do it just because they can, and people like you make poor ads excuses for it.

  • Woody20164

    Hey, stupid, you might want to do a little research beyond “unfortunately, the Supreme Court ruled…”. Sorry you don’t like the law, but we have to live with it. It also ruled that the police CAN require identification from some smartass who “knows in rights”, or thinks he does. When the cop ran the plates it only told him there were no outstanding warrants on the owner, nothing about the original reason for the stop, which you so casually dismiss as “alleged”. What? You think they have nothing better to do than bother parents casually driving along? You really need to change the name of this site to Free FROM Thought Project.

    • Kevin Watts

      NO law broken, no law says, in WA state, that one has to provide I.D! A trumped up charge is bullshit, not legal, and I would have refused as well! Preeeeetty simple!

      • Woody20164

        This was in Ohio. Because he resembled a known felon, the police had the right to request identification under Ohio law Failure to Disclose Personal Information (2921.29). If he was not the felon, he could have simply identified himself, and been on their way. But he had to play Clarence Darrow. Hmm, this story doesn’t tell, but I wonder if he had his own wants and warrants, and that why he wasn’t cooperative. Kind of suspicious to me. Not driving (lost his license?), not wanting to be identified… “I ain’t going back to the joint!” Too bad this website doesn’t tell the rest of the story.

        • REALConservative

          There is no constitutional document that defines the “rights” of gov’t employees when they engage free American citizens, slave.

          The rest of the story is that the cop already knew who he was because he ran his name four minutes before the stop. The cop then executed an unconstitutional stop to manipulate an encounter with Stockett, and then lied about claiming stockett looked like someone else even though the cop already knew who he was.

          The cop was subsequently suspended for two months and now has a “last chance” letter on his file.

          And the fact that you haven’t criticized him for using the “I’m going to hand your baby over to CPS” threat shows how sick of a person you are.

        • honest vet

          Woody… for a self-described libertarian, you sure seem subservient and eager to get on your knees for government goons. And as a vet, you’re a disgrace (Squids… always the lamest branch with the least regard for their oath). For someone who’s so quick to call others stupid, you’re not smart enough to realize you’re arguing for tyranny. They arrested INNOCENT people, you schmuck… what kind of American are you? Seems to be one that cares more about compliance than freedom and our rights not being violated by the state.

          If you like authority figures hurting citizens so much… maybe you ought to try Saudi Arabia.

          • Woody20164

            Libertarian is not anarchist. Cooperation is not subservience. Common sense tells you that starting a conversation with a hearty ‘eff you’, isn’t going to set the tone for a positive encounter. And this asshat was not innocent. What the cop found was that this guy had four felony warrants for abandoning his sperm contributions all over the county. My assumption above was correct, he had something to hide. Nice fellow. And I’m sure his girlfriend thinks she’s going to be the one who’ll keep him at home, despite the four other illegitimate kids.
            So if these oppressed idiots seem to think it’s open season on them, why start a confrontation? History shows some of them get shot.

          • Cleophis Hill

            This guy will never see the truth when it comes to the police. He probably was or wanted to be a cop & anything they do he will not be able to find fault with it. Most people with common sense see the cop was using his authority to intimidate innocent people with lies & bullying. The other cops were no better & Woody20164 would have been right with them if he had been present when this happened.

          • Spencer Woods

            Hey, I’m ex Navy and served honorably. Don’t do that. My fellow seaman have died by the thousands for this country as well

        • gottago8

          It is always made up excuses to defend the police. This cop was not out there looking for a suspect, if that was the case when he first approached the driver and passengers he should had said so, respectfully asked for ID, but it is obvious that he was upset that this white woman had a black mate, because if you pay attention he initially told the passenger that she look distress, only to insinuate that she was being kidnap or afraid of something. You will never understand what it is to be harassed, disrespected, discriminated due to the color of your skin. Remember there is a God above, only he will judge each and everyone accordingly, I suggest you change your views about your brothers and sisters, we are all God’s children. Learn how to be on the side of ‘FAIRNESS and RIGHT ‘

          • Woody20164

            There you go, play the race card. My girlfriend of 8 years is black and we get the eye from both white and black people all the time, so don’t try to feed me that righteous indignation you think I don’t understand. But bullshit like this guy’s does nothing to help. Show your ID if you have nothing to hide. Being cooperative is a far cry from being subservient. But then, this guy did have something to hide, didn’t he?. He was a negligent sperm donor, leaving children to fend for themselves all over the county. Talk about fairness and right? Don’t make a hero out of the worst of the worst in society. Even Jesse Jackson thinks snakes are better to their offspring than this guy is. His girlfriend sure picked a winner.

          • gottago8

            Regardless of what you think you know or don’t know about this person, he had rights, just like every citizen of this country, and obviously the cop violated his rights. Cop suspended for 2 months. And yes it is racial, the internet is filled with videos where the person was white and refused to provide ID to the police and you never see an arrest. STOP THE NONSENSE already

          • Cleophis Hill

            Do you think this cop had any idea of what you are saying? Even IFit is true, it had nothing to do with how this cop acted towards citizens he is supposed to serve.

          • Woody20164

            The cops do not ‘serve’ individuals. He’s not a waiter. He serves the community at large, and the greater interest of society. Digging deeper into the story, it turns out that this fool was a deadbeat sperm donor, having not paid some $30K in child support for his bastard children he left strewn across the county. The cop had apparently gotten the info on him and chose the wrong way to try to help the kids. It took a grand jury to indict him on four felony counts. No wonder he refused to show his idea. Hid behind his ‘rights’. His girlfriend sure picked a winner. My point is there is no evidence the cop did this with any racial motivation, and playing that card is just sad victimization. You can feel picked on, or you can man up and deal with other people’s bigotry and get on with your life. http://www.sanduskyregister.com/story/201502180025

            I don’t see the qualification about “no individuals – only the community. We’re not waiters.” Were they just too cheap to pay the painter? Probably not, since lot of them force inmates to “service” their vehicles.

          • Woody20164

            Are you watching old Dragnet reruns? Perhaps you slept through 2005 when the Supreme Court ruled that the police do not have an obligation ‘to protect and to serve’, which, by the way is just the MOTTO of the LA Police, not the law. They have since removed that motto from their vehicles, ca 2009. They are obliged to enforce the law, as the situation presents. And if you could provide a source for inmates being ‘forced’ to service vehicles, it would go a long way. Here’s the one I referenced: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/28/politics/justices-rule-police-do-not-have-a-constitutional-duty-to-protect.html

          • Damiana

            Yeah, “I can’t be a racist because I fucked a black woman once” is HARDLY a convincing line of self-defense.

          • Woody20164

            No, I’ve shagged her a lot. This morning before she went to work, as a matter of fact, and it was good. Let’s leave pigmentation out of it. Or is that the only line of conversation you have? Or are you jealous?

    • John Boutin

      Shut the fuck up you fucking communist. NO PERSON IS REQUIRED TO SHOW ID AT ANY TIME!

      • Woody20164

        Do you even know what a communist is, or do you just throw that around? In Ohio, individuals are required to identify themselves, name, address and date of birth in accordance with Ohio law Failure to Disclose Personal Information (2921.29). It may be verbal, but this ass would not even do that. Rather than cooperating, proving he was not the known felon he resembled, he chose to escalate it because he thought he was clever. We see where that got him. Most likely, without his confrontation, they could have been on their way home to feed Jr. Common sense has apparently left the building.

        • Alexthekay

          Please. He didn’t resemble a “known felon.” The cop was lying, period. And he’s the one who escalated it. Threatening to take an infant away? Good God, is there NOTHING you won’t defend if a jerkoff in a blue uniform demands it?

          • Woody20164

            I get that you’re a little thick and have a hard time grasping concepts, but the roadside is not the place to make one’s stand. Especially if you think that cops have open season on black people, and you’re a black people. AT THE TIME, the cop informed him he resembled a known felon. That, by Ohio law, requires him to show his ID. If it turns out to be wrong, which admittedly it did, the courtroom is the place to do it.
            Fully understand my position, I do not support bad cops, and it turned out that this was a bad cop. However, I do support cooperating with authorities, which includes showing my ID if asked, and I have nothing to hide. If they screw me over, I can not only watch them get punished, I might reap a little cash for the inconvenience when I sue the City. This clown wasn’t making some libertarian stand for citizens’ rights, he was hiding. Maybe you could make a case for the 5th Amendment here, but I really don’t care that much about this particular asshole to mount a defense for him, but again, the COURT is the place for it. Karma came around and his kids got some money for food and clothes. He was only inconvenienced a little. Seems like a lose-lose proposition for him.

          • Alexthekay

            I will ignore your childish insults. They only show that you know you’re wrong. Let me know when you’re capable of discussing something like an adult

    • adczeta

      Please stop you make no sense, they were petty and they lied, it’s not that deep.

    • Rob Evans

      Hey, stupid, you might want to do a little research yourself. This happened in Ohio. He is required by law to VERBALLY ID himself. Nothing more.

      • Woody20164

        Yes, and this guy would only say, “I’m NOT Mr. So-and-so”. Because he reasonably resembled a known felon, it would have been prudent to just show his id, prove he wasn’t that guy, and be on their way, but asshat chose to escalate it. See Failure to Disclose Personal Information (2921.29)

        • Cleophis Hill

          who escalated it? The dog, threating to take her child & arrest her?

      • OhBoy

        Did he identify himself? No

    • REALConservative

      You have no idea what you are babbling about, moron.

    • Damiana

      Out of curiosity, who are you calling stupid?

  • Lawrence McAllister

    Unless you fit the description of a known suspect you do not have to provide ID when sitting in the passenger seat. He was not driving

    • Woody20164

      And you heard him say he fit the description of a known suspect, right?

      • Willemaq

        And you know cops have said that to virtually EVERY Black man they’ve ever stopped, right? They said that to me years ago (with guns drawn no less) as I was walking down a public street minding my own business. I later found out that the suspect in question was 4 inches taller, 40 pounds heavier and several shades darker than myself so…

      • Cleophis Hill

        He said a lot of things & most of them were lies.

    • REALConservative

      You don’t even have to carry ID as a passenger you stupid motherfucker.

      So no, the cop’s lie about him “looking like a suspect” is insufficient to require ID. The cop already knew who he was because he actually ran his name four minutes before this stop.

  • David McGuckin

    Ohio is a police state. It’s taxation through citation and the only reason weed is illegal in these police states is they have a huge prison industrial complexes. Black = weed to Ohio cops…and that’s thousand$ fed into the prison industrial complex.

    Problem is allot of people feel they have a right to “not” comply and they get executed. Better to comply and hire a lawyer along with your video evidence have your day in court, sue, and walk out with $10,000 – $100,000.

    • Levi

      I agree. This makes my blood boil and he shouldn’t have to comply to the outlandish problems, but yeah comply, don’t say shit except “Lawyer” and then sue the fuck out of them.

  • Woody20164

    Ya know, if the police had come to my window and said, “Um, sir, you resemble a known felon, and we’d like to confirm you’re not him”, wanting to clear my name and reputation as fast as possible, I’d have said, “Poor guy, he must be ugly, but here’s my ID, proving I’m not him” and been on my way home lickity split. A little cooperation goes a long way. The cop would have said, “Remember to turn on your lights, have a nice day”.

    But no, not this asshat. He decides the roadside is the place to annoy a busy cop.
    Seriously, is the old “I know my rights!” drama worth the hassle this caused? And he was wrong. Because he resembled a fellow with warrants, he IS required by Ohio law to identify himself. So refusing to identify himself is suspicious in itself. And why wouldn’t he?

    The only reason I can think I would not want to cop to know who I am, is if I have a reason not to let them know who I was. Possibility number 1) I really AM the guy with the warrants, 2) I have outstanding warrants of my own or 3) I’m an anti-cop asshole looking for 15 minutes of fame on the internet. Is there a fourth? I’d love to consider it. But we won’t know, because this website only tells half the story to promote their narrative.

    So really, who escalated this thing?

    • Jeff Hawkins

      You should wipe you mouth when your finished sucking 🤣

    • REALConservative

      We aren’t impressed with your pantywaist bragging about how quickly you surrender your rights as defined by the fourth and fifth amendment, slave. Especially since you admit that you’d do it for convenience. That’s nothing more than taking a big wet shit on the graves of those who sacrificed more than a few minutes of time to define those rights for you.

      You disgust me.

      The cop stopped him. The cop now has a “last chance” letter on his file and missed two months of pay. Stockett did the right thing, and you defile the intent of the constitution. Only idiots like you think that innocent people have no vested interest in privacy…unless you are one of those stooges who think the Constitution is only for criminals. Sweet jesus, you should just die already.

      • Woody20164

        Well, gosh, as it turns out, I was right. Possibility number two, the guy had four felony counts pending. Since he decided to play hide-and-seek, it took a Grand Jury to indite him, but justice had its day. Sadly, not soon enough for his poor offspring. This woman sure picked a winner to sire her baby. Three other illegitimate kids who he doesn’t support. I guess she think she’ll be the one to keep him. Since this happened in 2014, I’d love to see if he’s moved on to another piece of ass.

        • REALConservative

          Turns out, the cop lied.

          The stop was unconstitutional.

          And for you to argue that it’s OK to use unconstitutional methods is disgusting.

        • Kay Farmer

            This post epitomizes everything wrong with the grammar police today… You’re harassing me and infringing on my rights to free speech.

          • Gregory Mead

            Really? How have your rights to free speech been “infringed”? Did Kay prevent you from commenting using the power of government? Your right to free speech does not come with it the right to NOT be replied to. Did Kay “harass” you? Only for very small definitions of “harass”. Was it petty? Perhaps. But it in no way prevented you from speaking freely.

            This is the big bad internet. Expect to be replied to, even to be contradicted. If you reply to me, I won’t whine that my free speech rights are being infringed. I may or may not bother to reply, but I recognize that we all have the same rights here.

          Nope, those counts on child support came along LATER. I hate to use the word “sheep,” but that seems to apply to you. You’ll excuse anything, even if you must invent magical time travel to justify it. Admit it–the cop BROKE THE LAW. He LIED. He got suspended for sixty days and had to serve community service. Some of us don’t think we live here at the pleasure of a would be Gestapo officer. You seem to think it’s just fine.

        • Louis Martin

          I just have to reply; if it was so great a job to get this 4 felony count person before a grand jury, WHY was the cop punished????? Your words speak volume Sir. dead beats come in all color, Sir. so does bigots, lets hope your not a racist on top of your bigotry.

          • Woody20164

            I’m not exactly sure how anyone’s race became an issue in my comments, but I guess when you don’t have a legitimate argument, call names, eh?

          You have a collection of blow up straw men that you orgy with when you aren’t stalking the elementary school? Just a guess by your predictable use of logical fallacies.

          See if you can discuss the topic. Just try.

        • Gregory Mead

          Actually, a Trump voter is more likely to be an authoritarian, “Do whatever the cops tell you to do” type rather than “don’t let the cops push you around” type. I sure as hell didn’t vote for Trump, and I applaud the guy in the video (Stockett?) as having a lot of courage to stand up to the cops.

          Plus, of course, it was obvious that the cops were looking for any excuse. They changed their story several times, and as has been noted elsewhere, they already ran his name. IMO, it’s a good thing that Stockett videorecorded this, because it could have been a lot worse.

      • Damiana

        Thanks for giving these copsuckers hell – you’ve saved me a LOT of keyboard-banging today!

    • Manny

      You must be high as fuck sucking on something fucked to think that its the law to identify yourself, the Nazis called and want their regime abuse tactics back, show em your papers you nazi while we show em our guns, my great grandy daddy papa basilio olivo shot and killed against these tactics in ww2, to now have them used here in the USA, hell naw, im making him proud and defending the rights they died for

      • Woody20164

        Good for granddaddy. What have YOU done, beside spew profanity at other people, and sit back and whine? I’ve got two 7.62mm holes in my chest defending your rights.

        • Louis Martin

          And yet you are so readily willing, to lay yours down Sir; for convenient sake? Was your service just for a pay check and paid world trip? Are did you really, fight for citizens rights?

        • Manny

          Ive served my country proudly, air force, and would do it again if needed, and profane is to lord yourself unconstitutionally, like the Nazis, and defending it, remember your oath

      Got damn you are one, totally ignorant to his own rights, asshole

    • Cleophis Hill

      You are right about one thing & it is obvious, YOU ARE UGLY. The cop was being a bully , he lied & threatened citizens who had done nothing. period

    • Joe Neckbone

      Spoken like a true dumbass white guy with absolutely no clue!

      • and now the racist voice chimes in

        • Joe Neckbone

          It sure has!

          • Damiana

            Yeah well, stick a sock in it before you cross any lines! (There are lines.)

          • Joe Neckbone

            I agree there are MANY lines, I have a very big sock I’m sure you can find a line to stick it in.

      • Woody20164

        What does my melanin level have to do with anything? You don’t know me.

        • Joe Neckbone

          Because guys like you, more often than not, almost ALWAYS NEVER HAVE A CLUE, or don’t really care that this always happen UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE FOR YOU, and all you can say is stupid things like ‘he decides the roadside is the place to annoy a busy cop’, or ‘seriously, is the old “i know my rights!” drama with the hassle this caused?’. The cop kept changing his reasons for the stop, but all you can do is like for the cop ONLY because the guy is exercising his rights. So yeah, YOU HAVE NO CLUE, either that, or you are just another stupid racist, and as some above said, you’re ugly (inside).

          • Damiana

            Yeah, but that just makes him clueless. Assuming he’s white because of said cluelessness is no more acceptable than any other kind of racism. Don’t be the kind of person who has to make EVERYTHING a racial issue, please. It annoys me.

        • Joe Neckbone

          And no, I don’t know you, but I know of you, and people like you!

        • Damiana

          For the record, I am absolutely AGAINST your side of this argument but you’re right in that it has NOTHING to do with your race.

    • OhBoy

      EXACTLY! Doesn’t excuse what the officers did, but just show your id and be done with it.

      • Alexthekay

        Yes, because it’s not as if we’re Americans with rights or anything.

        • OhBoy

          Certain states require you have ID on you….

          • isome

            If you’re driving. If you’re not driving, you are not required to carry identification. The constitution says this is not a papers please country.

            If you can point to which states’ statutes say that you must have identification, that would be great. lol

            The fact is there is no place in the nation where simply being in public without identification is illegal.

    • Alexthekay

      You’re a bit confused. This appears to be a cop who can’t be bothered to do his job, so he annoys perfect legit citizens.

      • Woody20164

        Perfectly legit citizens? As it turns out, this cop simply chose the wrong way to do the right thing. He knew this fool was a deadbeat dad who owed some $30K in back child support for his other little bastard kids he’d spread across the county. He was subsequently indicted by a grand jury and arrested on four felony counts. Call it karma. Guess this girlfriend figures she’d be the one…

        • Jana

          What does this have to do with anything?! A police officer pulled over a car for no real reason, and then focused all his energy on harassing the black passenger in the car. The man knew his rights, so the police officer made up lies to try and get him to stop defending his rights. What the man in the car is like is inconsequential to this conversation. This conversation is about police misconduct.

        • Alexthekay

          Again, the child support charges came up LATER and WERE NOT IN EXISTANCE when this illegal stop happened. Maybe you’re good with citizens having no rights, but happily the law in Ohio let those LEGIT CITIZENS off the hook–and sentenced the cop.

        • Gregory Mead

          “He knew this fool was a deadbeat dad who owed some $30K in back child support”

          Citation needed.

        • Matt Berry

          The back child support couldn’t have had anything to do with this traffic stop when the police officer even identifies, who he thought the passenger to be, and it was not who he thought (Mr.Newell is not a form of slang for Mr.Stockett is it?) Your argument on these counts of child support felonies are completely invalid and the argument that this officer identified him before the traffic stop is invalid as the video shows the officer was wrong in thinking this guy was someone he was not.

          • Woody20164

            You wouldn’t know it from reading this article, mostly because they just wanted to give us a certain perspective, but if you look into it, apparently he did know who he was, because he had been talking to him before the stop, and had run his name. That’s the trouble with organizations like the Free Thought Project, they never want you to know the whole story. Even two years after this happened, they only give half the story because they have an agenda.

            I’m not justifying how the cop handled it, trust me. My point is, at the time, if the cop says, “You resemble a suspect,” right or wrong, Ohio law requires that he produce an ID. The roadside is not the place to make your stand, the courtroom is. If the cop violated the rules, and he did, he would be punished, and he was. Justice was served. Using the rules.

    • Louis Martin

      people like you…..So if the cop wants your wife to suck his d*ck or go to jail for obstruction (only because your wife looks like a d*ck sucker he’s used before) you will comply, so y’all can be on your “lickity split way”?! (don’t answer)So where do you draw the line Sir? (please answer, some people are not sure your really that stupid). seriously; Police have done this very same thing, in time past, Sir. Illegally identifying a citizen is a small crime, (you would think.) It’s harmless right?! (don’t answer) Asking for a blow job is major, (I’m sure you’d think) But the first, perpetuates the bad behavior, the cop that continues to get away with small injustices, will eventually move on, to more egregious ones.

      • Woody20164

        I think extorting a BJ is juuuuuust a little different from “show me your id”. I have come to learn that the regular patrons of this establishment are totally wrapped up in anti-cop sentiment. It’s bullshit, but everyone is entitled to his opinion. You toss around things like ‘Police have done this very same thing, in time past”, leaving the vague implication that ALL police do it, and it is systematic. A simple ‘some police’, would be most accurate, and would receive now argument against the statement. Yes, there are some bad police, and when identified, they are dealt with. Just like there are bad fry-cooks who spit in people’s food, bad garbage men who leave someone’s container in the flower bed, and bad everything.
        But as I stated in my original post, the roadside is not the venue to pursue justice, particularly if you are a black person with a persecution complex, with any recollection of past bad cops. I suppose this clown was lucky he didn’t face a cop who would shoot him, eh? When showing his id could have ended the matter. OR, he could have had his recourse in court.

        • Louis Martin

          Thank you for your response…And I must agree, not all cops are bad, that was not my intentions to imply that. I have come across articles of good cops trying to expose bad ones and the system turned on the good cops. If a police officer does anything outside of the law, He sir becomes a law breaker, no different from those he swore to pursue, and protect the rest of the public from. God’s favor on your life brother.

    • Sharon Johnson

      Are you really that stupid? Why should he be reminded to turn on his lights IN THE DAY TIME? You fools really do go a long way to justify what is clearly illegal and unwarranted behavior by racist cops. You work so hard to make a case for this behavior even though it is obviously and painfully stupid. You say the cop was busy? Really? Then why did he stop them to tell then to turn on their headlights in the day time? This fool is nothing but a small time bully hiding behind a badge. Pretty much like you hiding behind a key board.

  • cslagenhop

    I hope he gets a lot of money and i hope the jack-boots have to go back to cop school to learn not to violate rights. The guy clearly invokes his 5th Amendment right to remain silent, and he is charged with obstruction for exercising his rights. Ohio law about ID or not, it doesn’t trump his right to remain silent.

  • REALConservative

    This cop was a lying motherfucker and his 60 day suspension was insufficient.

    He blatantly lied to Stockett by claiming he looked like another person…four minutes before this stop, the cop called in to see if Stockett specifically had any warrants. That means this cop also lied about the reason for the stop and it was wholly unconstitutional.

    You are the lowest of shit if you ever use a child as pawn to frighten citizens. That’s the sick kind of behavior of sadists and perverts.

    That cop has already shown that his life is pointless and he should just kill himself already.

    The other sick issue is that the other cops didn’t step up to do the right thing, either.

    Long past are the days when it was respectable to be a cop in America.

    The same thing happened when my husband and I and our two baby girls and new puppy were driving home to WI to spend the holidays with our family. We were pulled over for going 5 over the speed limit. The officer asked my husband to come sit in his vehicle while he wrote him up for a warning. ?? This is where said he told my husband that he suspected us of trafficking marijuana because our plates said we were from CO and we looked like a “good cover”. We did not consent to a search because we were not trafficking drugs -_-, our car was expertly packed tight lol, and it was 10 at night with a snow storm about to hit. We were planning to stop at a selected hotel just on the other side of Omaha. The officer then informed us that since we were refusing the search, he was going to call in the K-9 unit. We said fine since we had nothing to hide. This was my first experience with a K9. What a joke! He kept yanking the dog into the sides of the car and then pulled him around to the trunk where he then pointed at the dog and the dog sat. I guess this is a signal for a hit which now gave the officer right to search our car. They instructed me to get my two infants and 4 month old puppy out of the vehicle while cars were whipping by us at 65 mph on the inside shoulder of the highway. Then he had us go sit in the back of the squad car. I, 30 at the time, had never been in a cop car in my life. I have no record whatsoever. No DUIs. Nothing. Meanwhile my husband was still being held hostage in the squad car in front of us. My children are terrified and my puppy was crying to go to the bathroom. After tearing my car apart, they of course found nothing because there f’ing was nothing! They were super sweet and nice after that 😐 Smh. My husband has had this type of thing happen to him several times before but this was the first time I had ever seen it first hand. This is just one of many instances I’ve witnessed, known someone who’s gone through this, or experienced myself that have caused me to lose total trust with not only our police force, but court system too. It’s apparent that the motto is guilty until proven innocent and that all cops are trained to assume we are all guilty of something. They just have to find out what it is we are guilty of. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that we are white as white can be.

    • Joe Neckbone

      You should’ve let the dog do his business in the back of the patrol car.

        While that would have been droll, they would have used it as an excuse to press charges.

        • Joe Neckbone

          No they won’t. You can’t stop an animal from doing his business, especially when you can’t leave.

    Actually the Supreme court ruled that while using a dog doesn’t violate your rights, holding you to wait for a dog that isn’t already there if there is no probable cause, is an unreasonable burden on your rights.

      The cop got a short suspension and the innocent, fine upstanding citizen who dinndonuffin was arrested on four felony counts for failing to pay $40K in child support for the other bastard children he’d sired.

        I can tell this child support issue is chapping your ass, but his owing child support does NOT negate his legal rights.

  • John Laury

    In Ohio, if a cop asks you for identification, you are required to give your first and last name, and address, you aren’t required to show a driver’s license (unless you’re driving), so, unlike the article states “he lawfully refused to identify himself” is wrong (Ohio revised code 2921.29). Other than that, it’s entirely bullshit what they did.
