Any more info on outcome? Was the protester booked/jailed/bonded/charged?
I agree that yelling fuck you at the policemen is not the smartest thing in the universe, however if you watch the video carefully, the cop instigated the whole thing. He was the one to initially push the protester. Then came the fuck you. Then came the very violent potentially dangerous shove. I absolutely do not think this shove was justifiable. The cop was not in danger, the protester was walking away from the "protected zone", rather than towards it and there is no indication that the protester was going to break the barrier or not to keep peace. This shove was nothing but a reaction to "fuck you". Now, what does a code of LA Police says? Are policemen allowed to assault citizens for saying profanities at them? I honestly doubt that.
No idea, but I bet he'll be released at a speed of light. He committed no crime and yet was forced to face police brutality.
Important question: was the guy an Anon(or OG, I suppose... :/ ) or wasn't he?
I really don't care if some guy who happened to be there at the same time as you got arrested. If he was one of ours, that's a different story. Please clarify.
Legal landscapes are cumbersome and expensive.
Common sense is simple and cheap.
After the policeman violently shoved the protester he was compelled to arrest him and charge him with something to try and justify and cover what he did to the protester.
lol @ trying to speak logic at wwp moonbats
Have fun being called a troll and possibly accused of derails caused by people butthurt by your posts.
In most jurisdictions there's an unwritten offense known as "contempt of cop." It's usually charged as Disturbing the Peace, Public Profanity, resisting arrest, disobeying the instructions of an LEO, or something similar culled from the local laws. Successful prosecution usually depends on a lack of reliable citizen witnesses. The fact that this incident was mostly captured on video, plus there were non-police witnesses, would tend to argue that the protester will not be in any trouble and may have grounds for a complaint against the cop and the city.
I really don't care if he considered himself "Anon" or not.
Remember the Ideal Org opening in Nashville, where the Spring Hill (iirc) cops moonlighting as security for the org went batshit on anon? They were fueled by the juice of a thousand lies from the nice, friendly Scientologists, expressing their fears of death threats, bomb threats, helping tards kill themselves on the internet, all the random and sometimes distasteful things done anonymously online.
I wonder if that cop was "briefed" by the Scilons and maybe given a little booklet to read...you know the one.
Missing the point.
Whether he's an anon or not = don't care.
Whether he's one of our protesters or some random other guy from god knows where = care.
I can't speak about the Protestor line, but I can about the police officer. He wasn't just out of line, he was out of control. He needs to be immediately removed from the front and put on both investigation lines as well as evaluation. Police officers have a tough enough job without the rogues. They don't want them on the force anymore than you and I do.

Fuck! Look at those eyes! LOL
Scientology is already trying to twist this in their favor.
Do they have some new definition of "public at large"?
Dude, sleep, he needs it. Those bags under his eyes could carry groceries.
Awful bow tie. Those scions really need to have some swag man!
Mr. SleepDeprived did not see the incident and is relying upon second hand information. He might have asked, "So what did you see?" or something like that. But no, he repeats something he was told, over and over again.
Someone should ask him when he's going to stop beating his wife.
"scientology works and it helps people"
looks like the same start as about 98% of the street/bar fights I've ever seen.
one guy yells some shit. the other guy pushes him...then goes after him and arrests him, slaps the cuffs on...o wait
real professional, cop.
id turn in your footage or make a copy and file a complant
photos up, i'll post the story of what i saw happen with other things i was around for (but not the arrest, i make one of the scientology act like a whinny bitch)
Fabulous Portfolio! Thank you! <3 <3 <3 !!!
It might be lulzy to duplicate their ronbot Scilons In Black look for an event.
Nice way to show solidarity to your fellow man.
hope you're proud.
Or maybe someone gave him some of those joke binoculars with shoe-polish on the eye-pieces?
Are these some of the rough-and-ready at the celebrity centre?
(HAT TIP to The Anti for the portfolio!)
Ah, there's nothing quite like unsolicited advice!!
Can we get a higher resolution of the shoulder patch? What does it say?
Looks a bit Sea Org.
I'd help out our fellow Anon member if i filmed it...
Well, first of all, he wasn't Anon.
That probably wasn't your point though. This isn't really the place to discuss it, but rest assured, all of this is being taken care of as of this writing.
I wish someone would pound the shit out of you, moron. It is considered "excessive force" and the LAPD has had an issue with it for many years... thanks to some bad LAPD cops, like this, the City of LA has had pay off millions of dollars in settlements & damages due to bad cops & the their supervisors who turn a blind eye to it. I suggest whomever took the video of the incident make copies and keep the original in a safe place.. it could soon fall under subpoena.
"Police misconduct comes in many forms. It can be outright excessive force at the police station or perjury at the courthouse. It includes abuse and corruption and it happens whenever cops victimize the very people they are supposed to serve and protect. California Civil Rights Lawyer Neil Shouse explains: "The sad reality is that police abuse continues to occur with alarming frequency on the streets and in the jails of California. Victims deserve their day in court. They deserve justice."
There are attorneys that handle issues like this. A civil suit could also expose the LAPD's special relationship with the cult that they've been coddling for years.
Another notch in the belt for the ice queen.
I can think of a few other actions that are more inexcusable than a "fuck you":
Mod Edit: Photo removed. Not suitable for upstairs.
This Hispanic cop is called all the time for Scientology events that require moonlighting cops.. I recognize him from past protests... OSA head Ken Long, as a matter of practice, has long kept a list of his favorites.. LAPD cops that use their discretion to benefit the cult... and when the cult needs cops to work their events, Long will request this cop personally... it works both ways...
It benefits the cult to get an officer willing to use his police authority to follow their directives.. and this officer can depend on getting consistent moonlighting jobs whenever Scientology puts on an event.
