  • LISTEN, however wrong the police were, the ACTUAL, FACTUAL , version of the situation is not being reported here, nor is the complete video of the situation! We never see the events leading up to the confrontation! Oh no, either unfilmed or edited the video only starts AFTER the initial confrontation! And of course it then tells a story of mistreatment , injustice, wronged by racism! Narrative supports the left's accusations that are never FACTUAL but farcical being spread and falsely proven by hearsay , or word of mouth! Gossip if you will! A CRIME , not matter how small, was committed and when adherence to the law was dismissed and refused by this family , the cops were then employed to enforce the law! Disregarding both the law and it's enforcers, this family of future thugs decided not to comply and attempted to flee like they did nothing wrong! After a small chase they were apprehended ! Oh yeah , besides the doll, the father stole an item or two also! Then when tracked down , they still were refusing to comply!

  • This is NOT the full story. In the report witch is not like linked in the description it says that the dad stole underwear from that same store and they fled from police. The dad also had a suspended license. When they finally caught up to the family in that parking lot the dad was fumbling around in the car where the police couldn’t see his hands. They drew their weapons getting ready for the worst and told him to put his hands up. He did and he complied and was fine. The mom wouldn’t put her hands up because she had her kids in her hands. She could’ve put them down and put her hands up. The police were not completely in the right too, they could’ve been more calm and professional. But still. You guys gotta do your research before coming to a conclusion just from watching a biased video on UA-vision.

  • as much as I stand on the other side politically yet I enjoy every video of trevor, but this one is off the record, there is a big story behind this, the story is not " cops respond to a 4 year old who took a barbie doll without paying" do your research before covering or commenting on such subjects because you guys are making the cops weaker and weaker and more ashamed for no reason, of course there is bad cops ( the very minority of the force ) but what about the good cops, stop being a bunch of fucking fruitcakes and snowflakes and grow some balls.

  • 1. as a citizen, i am the boss of those cops. my taxes pay for their salary. just a reminder. 2. those million dollar settlements arent the happy ending. that settlement is paid for by taxes, that now will be missing in another much needed department.

  • Did you know that the most hurtful of all is that to be harrassed by the peoples who were meant to protect you from such kind of bullying, threatening, harrassment, whatever you named it. Badge guys are turning bad boys (Guys) The level of incarceration in #USA is always increasing madly, That's what USA government should concentrate on instead of trying to wage trade with China, war with Iran, proxy war in middle east, unseating a governments in Colombia, Venezuela, Nigeria, etc, using or helping Saudi Arabia's Terrorism strategy, projects, and exports the CIA, FBI experts training ISIS FIGHTERS, TALIBANS. Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, and so many other Terrorists groups. USA of today should helps Americans starts Small businesses, Entrepreneurs like the Chinese government focus on, not selling Weapons to SAUDI ARABIA knows that they are using them destroying Syria, Yamen etc. American government are changing their purposes for their own businesses, peoples, friends, and turning to something much EVIL and Dangerous to Democracy, politics, & Capitalism in general. American government should be Hope for those that lost their jobs, don't even have Hopes, or felt demotivated.. That's the American dreams, & we all wanted.

  • I would sue the officers, and if they couldn't pay it, I'd make them sell their belongings to pay me off including pay me support and pay for my legal fees. That's how you make them learn. Suing the departments isn't going to help anything. That's just a greedy attorney wanting to get paid because they will get half of that settlement. Kudos to the civilians recording it or else they would be in jail and their children in foster care.
