Dashboard Footage Cops Tried to Hide Gets Jersey Man Acquitted, Cops Indicted

DashboardCameraVivid example of why it’s good for citizens when cops’ actions are recorded, in a nice happy-ending story out of New Jersey, summed up by Raw Story over the weekend:

Evidence from a dashboard camera on a police cruiser ended a nightmare for a New Jersey man facing false charges of eluding police, resisting arrest and assault.

Prosecutors dismissed all the criminal charges against Marcus Jeter, 30, of Bloomfield, N.J. and instead indicted two Bloomfield police officers for falsifying reports and one of them for assault after the recording surfaced showing police officers beating Jeter during a traffic stop, according to WABC of New York. A third has pleaded guilty to tampering.

Jeter’s defense attorney requested all recorded evidence, but the police failed to hand over a second tape until additional evidence surfaced of a second police car at the scene. The tape showed Jeter complying with police, even as one punched him in the head repeatedly.

The kicker:

Without the tape, prosecutors had been demanding a five-year prison sentence.

    People have to realize that this type of “cop” behavior is not uncommon and, they need to recognize that it is happening across the USA….in every jurisdiction, all to often. Today’s “cops” are nothing like yesterdays Police Officer (some still exist). They are the product of government gone mad officiated over by Federal and State Legislator’s and City Council members and County Supervisor’s – who embrace Marxist-Socialist ideology and progressive-left intolerance for things and people with whom they disagree.

    Today’s “cops” are the product of a society who has lost its way and its faith. These are merely “rogue” enforcers of elite politicians whose corruption grows exponentially every day. Look around and observe. This is not a happy country and we are not a happy people. Unfortunately, that is how the ruling class want it and that is how their thug “cops” will keep it.
