Police Body cams show claim was fake, but not before it was spread all over social media
As violent crime and murder rates soar, national Democrats are backing off—way off—their 2020 “abolish” and “defund” the police rhetoric, but their anti-cop activist base is pushing back. The ACAB (“all cops are bastards”) anarchist crew are becoming an embarrassment for national Democrats who hold a scant House majority, a split Senate, and a unified American voting public fed up with their failed utopian lunacy that removing the police will result in some sort of “whitening” of crime-ridden Democrat-run urban areas.
After all, they faulty logic, suburban and affluent areas where a bunch of white people live don’t have a massive police presence and don’t have major problems with violent crime and murders. Therefore, they faulty logic squared, removing police will make crime-ridden areas riddled with violent criminals just like those white, affluent areas.
Who wants to tell them?
Well, we’ve been telling them for over a year, and they are finally getting a clue. They have no choice. Violent crime and murders are surging at levels unseen since the ’70s, and the American people will just not stand for it. Polls clearly show that the very people Democrats are ham-fistedly attempting to pander to with their devastating assault on our nation’s law and order foundations hate their abolish/defund the police ideas. Really, really hate them.
National Democrats don’t care. They love police unions and police union cash. They tossed an idea out there, it didn’t stick, they don’t care. They will now pivot to support the police . . . and even lie through their teeth that they always did and top that off by attempting to spin their well-known anti-police record as a Republican push to defund police. Utterly shameless, deeply cynical lying liars who lie for a living, they are ready to turn on a dime.
Their rabid fringe ACAB street warriors and social media activists? They are true believers, duped by a combination of CRT and leftist propaganda. They literally hate the police. That’s why they ambush and shoot police officers in the head at every opportunity. They are at “war” with police because they truly believe the garbage they are fed by people who don’t believe a word of it.
These unhinged activist forces Democrats unleashed are about to bite them, though. Hard.
They don’t care that national Democrats have changed their tune, and they aren’t about to shift their ridiculous position that “all cops are bastards.” To that end, they are going to great lengths to push that narrative, up to and including sharing false “takes” on law enforcement.
The latest viral nonsense hoax:
Thread: So the video below, claiming to show a cop planting drugs on an African American driver, went viral yesterday. As you can see, it was spread to hundreds of thousands of people. It led to people doxxing and targeting the cop involved & denunciations of police generally. https://t.co/SMFT4yzR7L

Luckily, the officers involved were wearing body cameras (which are important to protect citizens from police and police officers from this type of abuse).
Here is one of the body cam videos where officer explains what is happening right after that clip: https://t.co/4WXoclID0z

No one was arrested for any drugs. The only citation issued was for speeding. The person who posted the original clip knew that but left it out to promote this mob. The truth is unlikely to change the harassment that the officer and his family will likely face now.

Fox News has more on how this anti-police hoax transpired:
A police department in Wisconsin is hitting back against a cell phone video taken during a traffic stop circulating on social media, arguing that body camera footage showing the incident from a different vantage point, proves that an officer did not try to “plant evidence” in the back seat of the vehicle.
The incident happened Wednesday at about 3:22 p.m. when officers from the Village of Caledonia Police Department conducted a traffic stop for a vehicle traveling 63 mph in a 45 mph zone. The driver was identified by her driver’s license, and two rear passengers who were not wearing seatbelts were asked to identify themselves and were later removed from the vehicle, police said.
The front passenger, who police say lawfully declined to identify himself, recorded a video on his cell phone that was later posted to social media with the caption, “Cop caught in 4K planting evidence.”
It shows an officer appear to toss something in the back seat, before the front passenger tells him, “I got you on camera, bro.” The officer responds, “I got you on camera, we’re all good.”
“Hey buddy, you just threw that in here,” the passengers says, filming a plastic bag in the back seat.
Village of Caledonia Chief of Police Christopher Botsch on Saturday released two clips of body camera footage, each taken from separate officers at the scene, adding more context to what happened.
He said the first video shows officers search one of the rear passengers outside the vehicle and an “empty corner tear,” or corner of a plastic baggie, was found in the passenger’s pocket.
“The empty corner tear did NOT contain any illegal substance; however, this type of packaging is a common method for holding illegal drugs,” Botsch said in a summary of events shared to Facebook.
The searching officer turned the empty corner tear over to another officer, who then passed it to the officer seen in the cell phone video that circulated online, Botsch said.
“Since there were NO DRUGS in the corner tear, the officers discarded the empty packaging material in the vehicle,” the chief wrote. “This is what was observed in the video.”
The second clip of body camera footage shows the officer approach the vehicle, as the front passenger can be seen in view recording on his cell phone using its front camera. After the passenger accuses the officer of throwing the plastic baggie in the vehicle, the officer is heard saying, “Yeah, because it was in his pocket and I don’t want to hold onto it. It’s on their bodycam that they took it off of him.”
I’m not a LEO, but this does seem kind of sloppy to me and also apparently to Botsch.
“While we would discourage officers from discarding items into a citizen’s vehicle, the video is clear that the officer is NOT planting evidence or doing anything illegal,” Botsch said in the post shared to the department’s page. “Additionally, the empty corner tear is not itself illegal.”
No arrests were made as a result of this incident, police said. The only arrest/citation arising from this incident was a speeding citation issued to the driver.
So the guy was issued a speeding citation, not busted for the drugs supposedly “planted” by the officer? This cop planted drugs in my car . . . and cited me for speeding! That bahstid!DONATE
