ANOTHER ONE! Video Shows Baltimore Cop Slugging Suspect In The Face #MobTown Chronicles

Police Claimed To Be Unaware Of Video Until TV Station Shows Them
Filed by James MacArthur

Sometimes in Baltimore it's really hard to keep up with all the shenanigans involving Baltimore police.

WJZ reports the video is the latest in a string of caught-on-camera incidents that have called into question officers’ behavior, including an incident where a cop was caught on camera punching a man near a bus stop.

In fact, a Baltimore Sun investigation recently detailed dozens of cases where the city paid out more than $11 million to settle allegations of police brutality—part of why Police Commissioner Anthony Batts and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake now actively support the introduction of body cameras on all officers so they have more evidence of when police force is justified or crosses the line.
“What, you got probable cause?” the man asked.
“I’m going to ask you to get out of my face,” the officer replied.
“Don’t touch me!” the man replied.
In this video, you see a confrontation between a young man and an officer. Although the young man acted in a manner in which we wouldn't suggest, the officer seems to use way more force than is necessary. By punching the man in the face, the officer escalated the situation to a place it didn't need to go.

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.
