Florida Cop Harasses Black Man With Made Up Law

Apparently stepping outside the walk lines in Florida is a major felony. Not to mention getting arrested for a non-existent law.

Just another case of Walking While Black and an out-of-control racist cop.

WATCH: Florida cop makes up law to ticket black man for walking without identification

According to the Miami Herald, a police officer in Jacksonville, Florida incorrectly cited a law requiring identification for drivers when giving a ticket to a black man for jaywalking and for not having an ID on him, as shown in a viral video the man in question posted on social media.

The video posted by 21-year-old Devonte Shipman on June 20 shows Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Officer J.S. Bolen confronting Shipman for jaywalking.

“Miami Beach, 1962?” the Herald report asked. “No, Jacksonville, 2017.”

When Shipman asked the officer what he’d done wrong, the cop told him that he was fining him for jaywalking, which costs $65. Bolen then asked the young man for his ID, and when he told the officer he didn’t have it, Bolen “snapped.”

“That’s another infraction,” Bolen said. “In the state of Florida, you have to have an ID card on you identifying who you are or I can detain you for seven hours until I figure out who you are.”

According to the Herald, however, the officer got the law wrong — Florida Statute 322.15 requires licensed drivers to always have their licenses when driving and can incur a $136 fine if they do not, but no such law exists for walking without a license.

“Bolen also gave Shipman a citation for failing to obey a pedestrian control signal, another $62.50 fine,” the Herald noted.

Takes 9 Officers to Arrest Jaywalking Teen Who Doesn’t Resist

Unbelievable!

Officers Tackle Black Teen For Walking In The Street

Video appears to show an officer striking the teen in the face with a baton.

A video appears to show a Stockton, California, police officer striking a black teenager in the face with a baton before four officers wrestle the teen to the sidewalk and handcuff him for walking in the street.

The video, uploaded by witness Evan Avendaño, begins with an officer struggling with the unidentified 16-year-old suspect Wednesday morning. The officer repeatedly tells the teen to stop resisting, then appears to strike him several times with both ends of a baton.

Moments later, other Stockton officers flood the scene as the youth holds his face. Witnesses can be heard shouting, “He’s just a fucking kid,” and, “Let him go.” Four officers then tackle the teen and arrest him.

Avendaño wrote on Facebook that the officer approached the suspect for “jaywalking.”

“He barely stepped out of the bus he was 2 feet away from the sidewalk when the cop stopped him for jaywalking,”Avendaño wrote. “The kid took off the cop’s hand off his arm so the cop took out his baton & that’s when I started recording because everything happened too quick. He didn’t have to hit the kid with the baton & no need to call about 20 cops. And as you can see his body cam is on the floor. Smh.”

A Stockton police spokesman told Vice that the suspect was walking in a bus lane and refused to get on the sidewalk.

“For safety reasons, the officer told the young man to get on the sidewalk,” Officer Joseph Silva said. “After the teenager refused to comply and used obscene language, the officer went over and a there was a scuffle.”

Silva said the officer’s body camera fell off during the initial scuffle.

How To Turn a $15 Ticket… Into Jail Time

This supposed example of “Police brutality” is flying across the WWW. To be brutally honest this officer would have been well within his rights to light these two up with a taser. As to the woman who got punched in the face – Shoving an officer trying to make an arrest?

There certainly are some cops out there who are out of control… Not sure this is one of them.

Cop Caught Punching a Girl in the Face

Seattle police are investigating two teenagers for allegedly assaulting an officer—even though a much-publicized video has surfaced in which said officer punches one of them, 17-year-old Angel Rosenthal, in the face. The incident, caught on the tape above, happened after officer Ian Walsh stopped Rosenthal and three other women for jaywalking. They were “verbally antagonistic towards the officer,” according to the official report, and one, 19-year-old Marilyn Levias, tried walking away.

Walsh tried to drag her back to the car, and, well, you can watch what happened next in the Komo News video above. Levias and Rosenthal were both arrested. Initially, Seattle police said the officer had acted appropriately, but after the video got widespread local media play, the department said it was not only reviewing the incident, but department training procedures, the Seattle Times reports. Officers are taught punching as an official tactic, one sergeant noted.

Yeah – that overhand right was a little weak…
