Nebraska Police Chase Down Man Video Recording Their Abuse While Second Man Video Records It All
www.photographyisnotacrime.com ^ | 03/25/2013 | By Carlos Miller

Posted on 03/25/2013 9:29:55 AM PDT by redreno

Omaha police displayed an unbridled street gang brazenness when they chased a man who was video recording them abusing his brother into a private home, confiscating his phone and arresting him to ensure their actions would never see the light of day.

However, another citizen captured the entire incident on video from a second-floor window, ensuring at least the façade of an internal investigation.

These days you should pretty much assume that anything you do in public will be captured on video.

If they've done nothing wrong, what could they possibly have to hide?

How's that for turning statist logic back on the state?

We call this:

Felony Assault
Felony Battery
Felony Kidnapping
Felony Armed Robbery
Felony Breaking and Entering
Using a Firearm during the commission of a VIOLENT FELONY

Every cop there should be in Prison for not less than 30 years, personally I would ask for LIFE and maybe even the Death Penalty for their FELONY GANG BEHAVIOR.

There are Federal charges which could be brought, also. See 18USC242.

The number of cops involved pretty much eliminates the one bad apple excuse.

At least 15 officers...

I want to know what happened to the confiscated video. If it suddenly "didn't exist" when the cops didn't know about the second video, they should be charged with obstruction.

Any destruction of a video of the police, by the police, should be a serious crime.

Camera systems with software motion detection and automatic uploads to remote servers are much less expensive and easy study in preparation for self-installations. Free operating systems and software are great for those. Cameras that work well in very low light conditions can be had for as little as about $100 (need sealing/weatherizing), last I looked (couple of years ago). It’s a fun kind of project for the private property and home, too.

The Public Integrity Section in the Department of Justice is the office that prosecutes corrupt public officials—worthy of much more funding, unlike most other offices, but usually short of funding. The many offices that regulate against more productive activities get enormous amounts of funding.

That is precisely why the Founders wrote the 2nd Amendment...to protect citizens from the state...a state which insists police are there to protect the citizens when, in fact, they "protect" no one who is being attacked, robbed, assaulted, raped and murdered. When seconds count, the police are minutes away.

As an aside, if there were that many cops available to respond to this, Omaha has too many cops.

Corruption that goes unchecked in Omaha. Mayor Suttle is on-board with taking guns from law-abiding citizens. Police chief says they are investigating this incident.

I also wonder whether they had dash cameras going at all. They ended up arresting all three brothers. The original reason the police were there was due to cars with expired tags. The mother and aunt of the boys said, “...we are not dealing drugs, we are not out shooting people....” along that line. The media is even complicit (GO FIGURE), because they released a list of the several misdemeanor charges in the past compiled against the three brothers. I really think this was a HUGE overstep by the OPD. I also hope it can be used against the mayor in his upcoming re-election (primary is Tuesday, 4/2).

When I look through some of the videos posted at that site all I see is my husband visiting grievous harm on some of those police officers. I really have to wonder how many times these thug cops make the mistake of picking on the wrong citizen? Can you imagine these thugs picking on a SEAL team that’s out for a night’s fun?

It’s hard to imagine that just such a thing hasn’t already happened a bunch of times.

Taking photos now has gotten to be hazardous. Not only from cops, but from security, copyright bloodhounds, paranoid people, DHS, government. I tried taking photos of downtown Dallas next to a federal building. Two guys came out with AK47’s or similar. I’m sick of the whole camera=terrorist thing.

The cops can do no wrong and if you haven’t done anything wrong why would you care if they entered your home without a warrant and confiscated your camera?

What’s funny is that there are cameras at red lights, security cams, cop dashcams, private insurance dashcams, but let one guy video a cop and all hell breaks loose.

That's true in Medford, OR. The police there were just the toughest gang in town, operating under the color of authority. They scared the bejeezus out of me.

We can’t have a couple of good cops giving a bad name to the other 98%. I guess in omaha they aren’t inflicted with any good cops to water down the average.

For beginners, because it is my home and my camera. If I wanted to get picky, I might add, because I can’t enter their homes and confinskate their cameras. I may even go as far to say that I paid for the camera and am paying on/renting the house. And in closing, it is only those whose desire is to be slaves that believe that everything the cops do is right.

I’ve seen more than one youtube video of cops being recorded when one of them yells “camera!” The same way you would hear them if they spotted someone holding a gun.

What are those clowns going to do when the next generation of cameras hit the marketthat are so small and cheap that they can be anywhere?

Gee, where was SWAT, the Marines, the Army, the Navy, the Air Force? The goons couldn’t handle one guy with the people on site. This is what our,”Police Force,” has become, little people with and over whelming sense of power and authority. DISCUSTING!

But cameras today are so cheap!

Anyways, I agree with you. I used to be Mr. Law and Order, but about 10 years ago I saw a group of police at a restaurant and they were cursing loudly, farting so everyone could hear them, basically acting like animals. No respect at all for anyone around them. Ever since then my respect for them just diminishes more and more, based on what I see.

This is exactly why “Shall Not Be Infringed” means we RETAIN the right to be, at minimum, as well armed as the forces government will use against us. Show me anywhere else in the BOR or the Constitution where the founders were so emphatic as to write “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”. SNBI leaves no wiggle room for a law abiding government but that is long gone in this country.

Does anyone think, if this happened in NYS, that there would be only 7 officers or they would only have 7 bullets?

The left is pushing us right into the arms of law enforcement who will in conjunction with the media hide all their abuses of power.

3 times I have experienced the fear of being in the presence of a rogue cop - and incredibly relieved to walk away without being harmed.

I know many of them are good people, but I have developed a large amount of distrust.

Going to work one day (when I had a job), just rolling down the expressway with all the other traffic...

When all of a sudden everyone starts slamming on their brakes.

Some idiot motorcycle-cops doing radar on THE EXPRESSWAY. So naturally everyone slams on their brakes.

I had to stop in the median. Got a few tickets.

Talk about rogue cop, both arms full of tats. Complete 100% certified-guaranteed asshole. Most revenue collectors are, seems to me.

It is also very hard to get rid of a truly bad cop who is in tight with the union.

I had one such pointed out to me by the brother of an officer on his force. The other cops knew he was rotten, doing drugs, unpredictably violent, and that nobody, even other cops, should ever be alone with him. They also knew that the union would not permit him to be disciplined at all.

The union even had his death reclassified as “In the line of duty”, though he was off duty, DUI and carrying narcotics, and had illegal weapons in his car when he crashed it into a building and died. Why? Because he had no relatives, and his insurance had the union as his beneficiary. Lots of money they wouldn’t get if that other stuff was official.
