These Cops Couldn’t Care Less About Breaking the Law on Video, Tell Victim, ‘It’s Policy’

Glens Falls, NY – A video uploaded to Facebook last week demonstrates the extent to which police will go to harass and intimidate citizens during an “ordinary” traffic stop.

On Wednesday, November 4th, Beatrice Larry had just arrived home from work when she saw her boyfriend being pulled over three houses down. Upon her arrival at the scene, she learned that he had been ticketed for driving with a suspended license and failure to obey a traffic control device. Her boyfriend also advised her that the officers had taken the keys to the vehicle (which belonged to her) and stated that they were going to have the vehicle towed.

When Beatrice attempted to politely inform the officers that she was the owner of the vehicle and it was only a mere three houses away from her home, the officers refused to listen, instead deciding to flex their authority and brazenly violate her rights.

At this point, Beatrice wisely began to record the interaction. As the video begins you can hear Beatrice ask the officer for her keys. The officer then advises her that they will be sent with the towing company. Immediately after, the officers begin their illegal search of this innocent woman’s vehicle.

Beatrice tells The Free Thought Project:

“I asked for my keys they refused to give them to me and said it’s being towed and they began searching my vehicle saying it’s policy.”

While police are allowed to search vehicles in certain circumstances during traffic stops, in this particular incident
these officers were in complete violation of the law. According to the 2009 Supreme Court ruling Arizona v. Gant, arresting a motorist for driving with a suspended license, is not a lawful basis to search a vehicle.

In spite of this legal precedent, the officers continue to show a blatant disregard for this woman’s rights. After Beatrice informs the officers that what they are doing is illegal and demands them to stop numerous times, they respond by telling her that they aren’t searching the vehicle, but are conducting an “inventory” as they are caught on video rummaging through numerous areas of the vehicle.

Despite the officer’s insistence that they were conducting an inventory of the vehicle’s contents, the officers can be heard remarking to each other that they didn’t find anything. In addition, Beatrice says that she has also yet to receive a ‘list’ from the so-called ‘inventory.’

Ironically, nearly one year ago to the day Saratoga County NY Sheriff’s deputy Shawn Glans was caught on video assaulting a man for refusing an illegal search.

How can the public trust “peace officers” who seemingly make it their goal to violate citizen’s rights and look for any
possible reason they can find to extort money from people and lock them in cages?

    • How do we get these fools off of the throne?

    • In China, which conservatives revile as a bastion of tyranny, the President serves 1 term and steps down. I don’t know if Politburo members have term limits.

    • ^^^^^ We got a government shill ^..^..^^^^ White indoctrinated Nazi working for freedoms for the white race

    • The Conquest of America might have been the biggest armed robbery ever, but it was not genocide. Genocide means total extermination. A lot of Native Americans were killed, true. They weren’t ALL killed, and total extermination was never the intent. The intent was to kill as many as necessary to accomplish the robbery. Once the robbery was accomplished, the killing stopped.

    • Curtis Rothlisberger your justification is wrong the jew say genocide and they are not all dead put the drugs down osama!

    • JEWS/WHITE SAME BLOOD

  • above the law,,, no accountability,,, a corrupt system

  • that is israel, right?

  • make the people bleed as much as we can in the name of profit.
    state revenue, consuming etc :p

  • there not held actable

  • They should be hung from a tree

  • Legislators have written seizure laws that disregard you constitutional rights and then they cut police budgets and told them to get their own money by……look for any possible reason they could find to extort money and make arrests.

  • The officers did nothing wrong. Search incident to the arrest of her boyfriend. She has no standing to object to the legal search.
    You should know the law before you render an opinion in this case.
    You assholes just don’t like the police is the problem.

    • Police state loving fucks like you are major part of the problem

    • Peter, we aren’t in a police state you conspiracy minded dumb fuck.
      You’re the problem !!
      Now, go sit down and shut the fuck up !!

    • Wow you are ignorant. They POSTED the case law on this in the article if you bothered to read it instead of being a troll. Driving on a suspended license in and of itself doesn’t allow a search.

    • Your willingness to bend over and take it suggests that you may be a cop.

    • Tony Gibson is a treasonous felon with a badge who armed robs , intimidates, extorts, kidnaps with a piece of metal and a gun.

    • Yo they will get what the fuck that they are looking for

  • Ther is no doubt that most likely thirty persent of the Cops in this Country are A-holes no doubt but the problem is number one Unions, number two their supers and number three is the Chief in charge.

  • Policing for profit

  • *couldn’t.
    The phrase is “couldn’t care less” as in “I couldn’t care less about reading this now that I’ve seen the headline.” Plus, I’ve already seen the video on your youtube channel that I’m subscribed to.

  • not right

  • The bad thing about the cops that get away with these unjust and unlawful behavior is that when they are recorded and it clearly shows that they crossed the line and are breaking the law that they were sworn in to uphold and protect the citizens, the department does nothing to them but just gives them a slap on the wrist. It’s like they are sending a message that they are above the law and that cops are alway in the right regardless of the evidence set before them …..smh

  • Legal search, Inventory of personal property prior to impounding it. The couldn’t impound it without a reason. Whole story not included in video.

  • Wow

  • Why do Americans say “could care less” it’s “couldn’t” care less. I know its no big deal, but it makes you sound stupid.

  • Cops are sadistic thugs.
