Florida Police Chief Defends Cops’ Aggressive, Violent and Life-Threatening Reaction Against Men Video Recording them


Boynton Beach Police Chief Jeffrey Katz defended the aggressive reaction of his officers in a Youtube video Tuesday, claiming the men in the car were “escalating” the situation by “recording the interaction,” causing one of the officers to fear for his life when a man “reached out of his window with a black object in his hand,” which was nothing more than a camera phone trying to record the cop’s name tag after he refused to provide it.

That cop slapped the phone out of his hand, then yanked the man out of the car, throwing him facedown on the grass while another cop with his gun drawn comes charging towards the other men, threatening to shoot one of them for who knows what.

“I’ll put a round in your ass so quick,” the cop said, even though none of the men in the car were doing anything more than being assertive about their rights, even if they were doing it in a profane manner, which is protected by the First Amendment

    Let me say first that I generally despise cops….especially the meatheads with way too much testosterone. That being said, the punks in the car got exactly what the deserved. Cops deal with assholes all day long and if you’re going to act like one you got an ass-kickin coming. They brought this situation on themselves.

      I’m confused by your reply.You despise cops but don’t offer a reason why. You then approve of these cop’s behavior because they (driver and passengers) fit your criteria as being assholes. To a cop then, that can represent a broad spectrum of the public (or automatically everyone) and merely dependent upon which side of the bed they got out of that morning.
      What are their (citizen’s) rights?
      What is a public servant’s obligation to the public when carrying out their duties?
      Who gave them the power to threaten a citizen with a “star chamber” sentence for a driving citation?
      Do they consider you a “cockroach” with the power shoot you and abuse you, without fear of consequence, too? They summarily used this approach when using rubber bullets on members of the public (eg, the female lawyer, exercising her right to protest, hiding behind paper placard, callously shot by some thug} and then seen collectively gloating about their conquest on utube. Unsurprisingly, their boss defended their actions against a member of the public, as well.
      Just look at their actions with regard to their approach and remove the color bias from your assessment criteria. These policemen were all too aggressive and dictatorial in their behavior and those people in the car had a right to their approach, assholes or not. The cops do not have a carte blanche right to lay down on a citizen just because they fit some vague “asshole” criteria.
      Further, there is no written guideline in the police handbook which defines an asshole which they can apply as a reference for their actions against these citizens. These cops have a predetermined mindset that everyone in that car was a criminal by demanding every occupant of the car to show their papers. That’s a Nazi protocol.
      Is this how you want your country to be run? If that is so then remember, that policy applies to you, too. You may then expect to have the same actions of police brutality meted out on you, because by what criteria do the police apply the “asshole” test when they next interact with you?
