Have you ever wondered what it looks like to be resisting arrest. Take a look at the video link below and you will see how this particular officer deemed this conversation with a San Francisco Deputy Public Defender to be criminal requiring him to place her under arrest for the crime of resisting arrest. You cannot be more polite or calm than this PD was being with the officer and when she wouldn’t bend to his command or authority he abused that power and put her in handcuffs.
It’s sad that the actions of a small number of police officers (or detective in this instance) affect the public perception of the many officers that perform their duties incredibly well under tough circumstances. However, until police departments start to deal with these types of cases by swiftly firing the officers for their lack of judgment and abuse of power, sending a message that this will not be tolerated, that public perception will only continue.
If this happens inside the halls of courtrooms you can only imagine what happens out on the street and under cover of darkness.
