"Is it a common procedure to reach out of your car, while you're driving and grab someone?"
"It's very common when somebody's not comprehending or listening to anything I'm saying."
Butler City, PA -- A video was submitted to the Free Thought Project which shows a ridiculously pompous and arrogant Butler City police officer admit to grabbing a man while reaching from his moving patrol car and dragging him.
The dragging occurred after the man filming, Dave, simply recorded three Butler City Police cars during a stop. When the stop is over, Dave realizes that he knew the person who was just stopped by police so he calls out to her and she asks him to walk home with her.
At this point Dave turns off the camera, unfortunately. That is when Dave says that the patrol car came driving down the wrong side of the road and the officer reached out of his window and grabbed Dave and tried to drag him down the street.
After the officer let go, Dave turned his camera back on. The officer then pulls over and begins arrogantly laughing and admitting to grabbing and dragging Dave!
Dave: "You grabbed me out of your car door while you were driving!"
Officer Adams: "Exactly!"
Dave: "Is it a common procedure to reach out of your car, while you're driving and grab someone?"
Officer Adams: "It's very common when somebody's not comprehending or listening to anything I'm saying."
According to Officer Adams, it's common procedure for police officers to drive their vehicles the wrong way down the road, reach out and grab someone and attempt to drag them alongside the cruiser, despite not having committed any crime.

These officers know who Dave is because they unlawfully stopped him from filming them back in July after an incident occurred as he was trying to get paid from his former employer. The officers were claiming that he was illegally wiretapping them and confiscated his phone.
Davy tells the Free Thought Project that the only reason the video of that incident exists is because the officers deleted the wrong video after confiscating his phone.
It's a good thing that Dave turned his camera back on after this particular incident too. Catching the officer on video admitting to grabbing him while driving will be particularly effective in a formal complaint.
Dave tells us that he has already contacted an attorney and plans on holding these officers accountable.
