“What am I being arrested for?”
“You are being stupid.”
June 20, 2014
A video was uploaded to facebook Monday that started as a routine traffic ticket stop.
The 3 men in the video were travelling together when the driver allegedly parked his car on a sidewalk. Chicago PD showed up to issue a parking citation.
In the video, we can see that after the Officer is finished writing out the ticket, he moves to hand the ticket to the man receiving it.
When the man takes the ticket from the officer, he is obviously upset that he just got a ticket, and pulls it out of the officer’s hands quickly.
At this point the Chicago PD officer becomes enraged and assaults the man. He grabs him by the neck and slams him into the wall.
When the man asks why he is being arrested, the officer replies, “you are being stupid.”
This officer should have let well enough alone, he has now left the Chicago tax payers wide open for another lawsuit.
What do you think? Was this force necessary? Many of the comments within the facebook post think this officer’s actions were just.
