US turns to police-ridden country:More videos from Twitter account dedicated to police brutality show the abuse of power by members of law enforcment
The official Twitter account linked to Reddit’s /r/2020PoliceBrutality that is challenged to draw attention to more cases of the authorities’ abuse of power has recently uploaded two new videos showing that in most cases the efforts the cops take to arrest somebody are unjustified.
One of the cases was filmed in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and shows the SWAT arriving at the area where the peaceful protests have been taking place for several days. The heavily armored police truck can be seen driving to the intersection broadcasting by a loud-speaker “you need to leave the area this is an outlaw assembly. If you do not leave you’ll be arrested.”
The footage posted by a TikTok user @shaygne100 who there with her twin sister at that moment says during the video that they had nowhere to go as their car was parked on another street.
As soon as the cops debus from the truck the people can be seen starting to run down the street while the SWAT officers dressed up in military gear shouting “Move! Move!”
It looks like a pursuit as there was no curfew declared at that time. The people can be also seen trying to leave the area and hide from the cops as if the authorities were attempting to clean the streets off of anyone moving through along the road.
@shaygne100 then is hiding in a nearby restaurant still chased by two law enforcement members.
“We didn’t expect them to come inside,” @shaygne100 writes on the video.
The second part of the video shows two masked officers enter the place and order everybody to get out.
"Run away. Get out of here," one of the cops rpeatedly tells @shaygne100.
"My hands are up I'm not doing anything," she says on her way further from the area. But there was no safe escape. The officers then begin shoot the rubber bullets at the people who are trying to leave with their hands up.
The second video was made in Anderson and shows a white man with his hands behind his back while two officers handcuff him. Then the male officer suddenly seizes the man by the neck from behind and pins him to the ground.
“Hey, this is my son,” the man filming the detention can be heard shouting at the cops.
The video doesn’t show any resistance of the man so there was no obvious reason for that brutality.
The arrested man’s name is Spencer Dakota Nice, and he was assaulted by officer Reynolds with the assistance of his female partner officer Gravely.
The description in the video says that Spencer was not under arrest at the moment of the assault and his charge with resisting an arrest is dropped because nobody can be “charged with resisting an arrest that never took place.”
See the video below:
There is no information whether ther is any administration penalty or any charge for the two officers involved in that arrest.
So, can anybody now say, according to these two videos and a bunch of other similar footages posted on Twitter account https://twitter.com/2020police, that the U.S is turning into a real police-ridden government?
