Security guard? I don’t think so. She seems more like an activist journalist.
Somebody could have died because one woman was more interested in filming the confrontation than making sure it resolved safely.
The guy on the ground was grabbing at the cop’s gun. And during the arrest, the girlfriend wrapped the arrestee’s gun in a towel and threw it in the bushes.
Through all that, while the arrestee tried to fight off the cop some woman dressed up as a security guard was filming it all.
When the cop asked for assistance, she just kept filming. Ok, he did more than ask.
He shouted out ‘stop [effing] filming and help me!’ Watch:
It’s almost like she was cheering for the guy being arrested, and hoping to ‘catch’ the cop doing something he shouldn’t have.
News flash, lady. Your role as a spectator made the situation even MORE dangerous for the cop AND for the guy being arrested.
It added an element of uncertainty to an already difficult situation. If she REALLY wanted him to get through the situation safely, you would want the arrest to resolve quickly so he can go to the station, hear his rights and call his lawyer. Not lay face-down on the street wrestling with a cop.
If that gun had come out, and someone got shot, it would be cold comfort to either family that ‘at least you filmed it’.
Use your heads people. Some things in life are more important than a viral video. If the cop had acted wrongly, she could STILL have stood up as a witness.
Sometimes, social media just brings out the worst in people.
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
