Cop beats up model Air Force captain in his own home, issues arrest weeks later
The Daily Caller ^ | 17 Apr 2014 | Robby Soave

Posted on 04/17/2014 7:32:58 AM PDT by mandaladon

An Air Force captain discovered he was banned from Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey, California, due to pending charges against him from a previous encounter with a cop who had tried to arrest him for entering his own home.

The charges — resisting arrest and obstructing an officer — have infuriated Captain Nicolas Aquino, a first-generation immigrant whose parents came to the United States from Paraguay as political exiles.

Last December, an officer paid a visit to Aquino’s Monterey residence. Apparently, a neighbor had seen a man entering Aquino’s home, and reported a possible burglary to the authorities.

The “burglar” was Aquino himself. No one else was in the house.

The officer told Aquino that he needed to see identification, according to KSBW.

“At that moment I’m like, ‘Excuse me sir, but who are you? And why are you here?’” said Aquino in a statement.

Aquino, who is well aware of his Constitutional rights, asked the officer if he was being detained. The officer said that he was.

“And so I said, ‘OK, then my name is Nicolas Aquino. I live right here. I’m in the military,’” said Aquino.

Aquino showed the officer — a deputy with the Monterey County Sheriff’s Department — his military ID, but did not hand over the card. The officer interpreted this move as a hostile act, and proceeded to tackle Aquino, slam his head into the ground and put him in a choke hold.

The police report described the officer’s actions more favorably.

With many of them there is no acting involved.

The Naval Postgraduate School has standards such that the Obamadork and his minions would only qualify to clean the latrines. Holder wouldn’t even be let in the latrine door...idiot that he (or it) is.

That captain is smart.

As for that policeman.......

Let’s track this and see where it goes. The cop could be in the right....but I highly doubt it.

Sounds like a CYA belated arrest to defend against any civil lawsuit. Now the case and complications can be held over the defendant to try and wait him out or force a settlement.

To today's LEOs, anything but 100% submission and obedience is a hostile act.

We always had a tenuous relationship with the local LEOs while at NPS. If he was on base, then the cop has ZERO jurisdiction to even ask for ID. Out in town, producing his ID is sufficient. We are not required to surrender our ID to anyone unless we are POW (Geneva Convention) so the good Captain was correct in not handing it to the cop. The LEO stands to lose a good deal over this, should the facts reflect the article correctly.

Technically charged with resisting and obstruction, but for what? Simply being in his own home? The cop escalated a call and then charges the soldier. Pathetic.

Otherwise known as “extortion.” The officer as well as the prosecutors should be jailed.

You may be on to something here. Any, and I mean any interpretation or lack thereof by the LEO that the person is resisting, is taken down and charged. This then puts the person in the position to then fight it, which can take a long time.

Not all of them are. Plenty of places they still hold themselves to higher standards than what you read about here. They never make the news though, which is too bad because they get lumped in with aholes like this guy appears to be.

“Sounds like a CYA belated arrest to defend against any civil lawsuit”

They will use the criminal court system and the prosecuting attorneys will take a dual role not only as prosecutors but also act as defense attorneys to create the standard Good faith, probable cause, honest mistake, plausible deniability defense for the civil suite.

This happened to me last year. I came in through the garage and forgot to turn off the alarm. A few minutes later a couple cops knocked at my door. They explained why they were there, and asked me to step outside, which I did, without complaint. I explained what had happened, and they too, asked to see my ID, which I showed them so they could verify the address was the same. We had a couple moments of small talk, then I thanked them for responding. I didn’t get my head bashed in, or have to fight charges in court or nothing. Just saying.

Part? A law abiding citizen is in his own home, he shows his ID, the cop decides by pulling his arm back, that he is aggressive? Baring any new info, or being a fly on the wall, the facts suggest that the cop escalated the situation, then he charges the homeowner to cover for his own escalation. By all accounts, the captain in the Air Force is exemplary, what do we know about the cop? That he did not handle checking into a false complaint without violence. Seems to me it can be summed up as “he was arrested for being in his own home” to me.

How can the officer establish identification if he doesn't have enough time to read the name and address?

My take is that the cop will at least get an award, and perhaps a promotion. The only negative on the award vs. promotion is that the cop did not kill him. If he had killed him, a promotion would be assured.

All he has to do is request to see it again, for a longer time. There was no need to get physical. uy should sue him for everything he, the department and the city has.

Citizens don't have to Grovel Before The Badged Ones, as Ser Danny Love, Bastard of Salt Lake, and his Brave BLM Companions found out just this week.

Wonder how many of the BLM Gear Queers crapped their panties when they realized their "brilliant" tactical position under the bridge?

Just a tiny grammar instruction - it was a question, not an accusation. You ARE defending the cop’s actions, so the question is valid - based on the article.
