  1. We need police reform. Plain and simple. We need to be able to sue these SOBs. Get rid of qualified immunity.

    • We need world reform.

      It’s a heart matter.

      Repent and follow the blessed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ everyone. The blessed Lord shall soon return.

    A few bad apples…SPOILS THE BUNCH!

    Defenders always leave out that last part. The bunch has been spoiled.

    • Agreed, it’s like Chris rock says certain jobs can’t have “bad apples.” Pilots, doctors and police. They have peoples lives in their hands, they need to do better.

    • The angry police officer made the other one complicit..

    • Virginia is and has been a few good apples at best.

    • And so shall it remain spoiled until there is ACCOUNTABILITY!!!!

    You can see the younger cop reacting in the cars reflection, he is jittery because he knows it’s wrong. Police officers are the largest, most protected gang in the USA and it’s time to change the model.

    • @Cee Bee I will never stop in the dark for those devil’s I will fight it in court. Matter of fact that should be law. They lie also to amp up their charges also!

    • @Cee Bee And its exactly cops like him that escalates the ‘current climate’. Not the unarmed & law-abiders.

      Yep saw it too.

    • They are protected by the politicians that the people elected. Until congress, attorney General, senate, governor and sheriff’s change the laws. Get RID of police unions.

    • The young cop should have called for 911 ambulance back-up as his senior was out of control! But the scary part is arrival of more cops who can’t control themselves may have arrived.

      What is so infuriating about it? The man evaded arrest and the officer’s reaction clearly shows that he was stunned by what had happened. It was an accident and not an act of racism. Shame on you guys for shoveling all this manure.

    • Harshit Jain | April 12, 2021 at 2:35 PM | Reply

      Wonder if they are going to cover how infuriating it was to see these cruel foolish mobsters loot and raid shops with complete impunity.

    • @Harshit Jain You and people like you are the problem. No matter how egregious the behavior you are right there justifying it. You think it won’t happen to you and you are fooling yourself.

    • Largest mafia in the USA is the police union

  7. This man knew that when the police ask you to reach into the car it’s justified for the cop to fear for his life and use deadly force and get away with murder.

  8. Imagine if he would have stopped on a dark Road he would have been shot and they would have planted a gun

    • DaBoogieMonstah | April 12, 2021 at 8:16 PM | Reply

      They don’t bother to plant a gun anymore. They simply say that they thought he was reaching for a weapon. Doesn’t matter if video can show and prove they asked him to take off his seat belt/give his license/put the car in park. They know the odds are high that they’ll get away with it.

      @The Alpengeist And?? It’s legal to carry a gun in most states openly as well as concealed.

    • The Alpengeist | April 12, 2021 at 8:31 PM | Reply

      @DaBoogieMonstah – I have no problem that he was legally carrying, everyone should especially those in law enforcement or the military, some people in the comments were saying things like he did not have a gun or “imagine if he had had a gun in the car. Just clearing that point up.

      @Harshit Jain How tf does anyone, officer or not, confuse their taser with a hand gun?! Are you really that gullible?

      At the VERY least he should be banned from being able to serve in LE or have anything more harmful than a rubber band.

    I’m white and was raised to fear policemen. A 64 year old woman. Told by her dad as a child to never trust a policeman. If I were lost, afraid or in danger , go to the nearest house. I would have driven to a well lighted area too. I’m glad he did, it most likely saved his life. There was also no reason to pepper spray the poor guy…things like this need to stop.

    • @Harshit Jain he didn’t evade arrest. He drove slowly to a lighted area. I’m an older white woman and a vet & I would do the same. They knew he had temp plates by the time they reached his car and lied by calling in a felony stop. Then they assaulted him. Calling them idiots is too kind.

    • @T. Cheeze Yes, i think it’s time to require some kind of national database for police officers.

    • Elena Latici | April 12, 2021 at 7:31 PM | Reply

      @g w I really wish you would stop referring to police killings as ridiculous. The word ridiculous doesn’t belong in any sentence with the word killing. Especially police killing. You might want to get yourself a thesaurus to find more appropriate words to describe police killings. When people are killed by the police I don’t think ridiculous is the first word that pops into the mind of the mother, the father, sister, brother daughter son, boyfriend, girlfriend.

    • So your BIAS. U literally said ur BIAS u dont know the facts and what happened before.

    • Ashley McLeod | April 12, 2021 at 9:56 PM | Reply

      Dang!

  10. They never tell him why they pulled him over. Police: “Driver, you have no plates – can you tell me why?”, Driver: “I just bought it – I thought they put a temp in the window.”, Police: ” Your registration is good – have a good day.” Instead they escalate, escalate, escalate.

      Bodycam video shows the temporary plate in his rear window

    • @David Petrosky totally, plain as day. But the cops never tell him they pulled him over for no plates – it all coulda been over with one question. Instead, they escalated

    • He did have plates though.

  11. 1. Fed. Data Base for starters. No more rehiring bad officers.

      The dance of the lemons. We did get some legislation to be sure bad cops’ records accompany them to new job applications. Don’t know if it passed.

    • Those officers need to charged. With a criminal record they should no longer qualify for a job as a police officer or ownership of a firearm. After they get out of jail that is.

    • sharon olsen | April 12, 2021 at 5:35 PM | Reply

      @T. K. Exactly .. a felony assault charge for those officers who engage in this egregious behavior. Merely firing them is NOT ENOUGH !

      @W V Police impersonation is extremely rare. It’s no reason to evade police. Police cars are well equipped to light any area.
      By your logic no one should ever pull over. Gee I don’t feel safe…I guess I never have to pull over. I guess that never represents a severe threat to the community when people don’t pull over.
      You may need to sit down for this.
      Guess what?… most people delay pulling over to hide weapons or contraband.
      Let’s be clear the only reason this made news was because he’s black. No white person would get away with half the b.s. this guy tried to pull and no one would ever care. Stop coddling this dangerous man simply because of his race. Read my comment on Freemen. People in fatigues with no plates and delay pulling over…..are definitely dangerous af.

    • Joseph Dunleavy | April 12, 2021 at 10:48 PM | Reply

      @Aaron Friedman because its too easy to become a cop. Because they don’t have enough psychological screening in the hiring process. Because they don’t do reevaluations every 6 months on police officers. Again, if you can’t see anything wrong with what you saw here, please don’t go into law enforcement. You’ll just end up fired on the spot like these Neanderthals or indicted for murder

    • Aaron Friedman | April 12, 2021 at 10:56 PM | Reply

      @Joseph Dunleavy Ok great we have common ground I agree with your assessment of police.
      How does any of that apply here?
      Please enlighten me then. You seem smart so change my opinion through reason.
      Tell me what specifically do you think these specific cops did wrong? In what way did they not do what any cop would? It is not reasonable to not pull over. Cop cars are well lit.

  13. It won’t stop until they are responsible for their actions. Make them liable and put them in jail.

    When police officers are jumping on undercover police officers and beating them up it proves they only saw a man of color. The entire law enforcement community gets another black eye every time they allow a rogue officer get away with this type of behavior.

  18. Considering he had multiple guns pointed at him, he conducted himself so well. He did everything and was right not to get out of the car or reach for his belt. He could have easily been killed. Hope he gets paid handsomely for this.
