    I have a section 1983 case in its early stages. The police entered my client's home without a warrant or exigent circumstance, searched and videotaped the inside of the premises, then arrested and charged my client with a crime that can't by law be committed inside a private residence. The charges were dismissed by the judge at the first appearance after arraignment. We already have a significant, but not sufficient, settlement offer.

    I believe the internet and youtube have made it easier to get settlements in Section 1983 cases. 20 years ago no one would believe that a police officer would act as they do. The internet and readily accessible video has exposed just how common such incidents are. Juries are more willing to examine the evidence and listen to the victim's testimony instead of just accepting whatever the police claim as truth.

    We recently had a local incident (not my case though) in which a police officer approached and maced a protester who was being cuffed by another officer. The two officers filed a report claiming that the protester was resiting arrest, spitting on them, and causing a ruckus when the second office used the pepper spray. What the two idiots didn't know is that someone had filmed the incident and they were exposed as liars.

    The insurance carrier will settle that case quickly.

  4. its sad we have this kind of dirt protecting us.

    The guy with the camera was attacked by a bad cop. There is no confusion about what took place.

    I have at least 4 quick questions-

    1) If the camera guy had a CHL and were carrying, what do you think might have happened,
    and what if it was you, a CHL holder, being attacked on your sidewalk, what would you have done?
    2) If the CHL holder had protected himself and shot the bad cop, what do you think would be the outcome,
    other than the CHL holder being shot to death by other officers on the scene.
    3) Do the actions we saw in the video by a bad cop make a good cop any safer,
    or is the good cop out there now at more risk of being shot?
    4) Is the recent increase in police killings related in any way to police brutality being conveyed by this type of video?

    I don't think one would be justified in shooting a police officer because he wants your camera.

    LEO's aren't being killed by righteous citizens opposing police brutality. They are mostly killed by criminals committing crimes or involved in domestic disputes.

    When I had rent properties HPD told me that I had to file with the police office a trespass affidavit so the LEO could enter property, if they were not investigating an incident they could be filed on for trespass, this may have changed in recent years but the photographer was on his own property and not engaged in a criminal act then he should fill criminal trespass on this Thug.

    kicking someone in the face when they are down can be considered attempted murder in some states (it is an application of martial arts with a potentially lethal outcome...BTW police training counts as martial arts training)

    For reasons I do not understand, you have chosen to interpret my questions in a manner I did not suggest. Your coments have nothing to do with my questions. I never mentioned shooting a LEO because he wants my camera. I also did not suggest that LEO's are being killed by righteous citizens opposing police brutality.
