Pro-Obama Cop to Protester:"Put Sign Away I Can Charge You With Whatever I Want To Charge You With!"
Gateway Pundit ^ | August 29, 2009 | Gateway Pundit

Posted on 08/28/2009 6:06:33 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Woah!... This was the scene outside Rep. Jim Moran's town hall meeting on Tuesday night.

Today's Hope and Change... Officer Cheeks tells some town hall protesters to put away their signs or he'll "charge them with trespassing or whatever he wants."

This video was taken on Tuesday, August 25th, 2009 at Rep. Jim Moran's (D-VA) Town Hall meeting on Obama Deathcare (Howie Dean was there too) held at South Lakes High School in Reston, VA.

There’s a lot of nearly unhinged people out there.

You’d think cops would be a bit smarter (defensively) than to start down the storm-trooper road.

Nearly all of the Fairfax County Police are good guys. They’re well-trained and, for the most part, very professional. My only bad experience with any of them has been indirect - my wife was hassled by a cop directing traffic when a traffic light went out. This is no big deal - she had a bad day, and I’m sure he wasn’t happy to catch that task that day.

That said, I’ve never seen nor heard of Wesley Cheeks. He might be a newer hire. There’s probably a reason he’s confined to the yuppie part of Reston.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

Can you imagine the deafening roar from the liberal media over thug tactics like this against a liberal protester?

As he should. I hope someone has sent this video to his superiors. This bastard needs to be a 'former' "police officer".

Domestic Enemy with a badge.....how does that fat POS stay on the force ? He’s so fat that badge on his chest looked like a brass button. An insult to LEOs who have to stay in shape an maintain standards.... regardless of their politics.

2010 elections can’t get here soon enough.

This loser with a badge is proof of what happens when police agencies use affirmative action to hire their officers.....they get the bottom of the barrel, jerks who couldn’t find their a**hole with a funnel.

Interesting.

Search Google for Wesley Cheeks and some you tube videos come up. Search Google News and nothing comes up. I guess news agency don’t think this is worthwhile.

I was interested in seeing if there had been any reprimands or potential lawsuits.

If this happened Tuesday why is it just now coming out and why have we not heard that the guy is fired and ACLU is doing what it usually does.

Why isn’t some freakin atty taking this case on a big fat contingency fee?

I’ve about had enough of cops and stupid laws. We have more now than anyone can possibly be aware of, laws that is.

The other thread indicates he may not be a cop. I need to watch the video again..I could have sworn that was a cop uniform. Would like to get a screen shot. I think I know how to do it but won’t be able to until later.

Is the uniform a cop uniform or school security? Do you recognize it?

I’ve never seen a school security uniform with a large badge like “cheeks” had, which leads me to believe he was a cop. They’re not suppose to look like cops for reasons..at least that’s my understanding. In my experience if they had a badge, it was small.

Thnx..

If he is a security officer and not a cop he can’t charge anyone with anything. When I get back on the computer, I’ll watch it again. Can’t watch it on this phone.

Maybe. But they are overwhelmed by the corrupt thuggery that dominates up there. It's been that way for 30 years, nothing will ever be done about it, and it will only get worse.

That animal, Horan never prosecuted any police wrondoing. Even the infamous copicide murder of Dr. Culosi

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,193652,00.html

I won't bother you with the tales I had to put up with 30 years ago when I was the straightest kid in the world working a late-night job, getting threatened by coked-up Fairfax County cops. I'd rather live in North Korea than Fairfax County. I have to visit my elderly Mom there and it is depressing.

Most Fairfax County police officers wear gray shirts, but I have seen shirts this color before. He appears to be an actual officer.

For what it's worth, I did read on other websites that Cheeks is actually part of the "School Security Officer Team" and not an actual police officer. In fact, it seems that the FFX County Police Department has gone out of its way to state (rather emphatically from what I've seen) that Wesley Cheeks is NOT an officer.

http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/police/

You can seeone individual in that photo wearing what appears to be the same shirt, though due to poor lighting in the Cheeks video I can't tell if the badges and insignias are the same. I'm at least glad to hear he's not an officer.

For what it's worth, 99% of the time officers will be wearing gray shirts like you see in those pictures.
