Skip to comments.Man wants charges filed against officer who kicked him [3 Guesses, First 2 Don't Count]
Posted on 06/11/2015 5:35:02 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
.... A South Florida banker who is shown on a video being kicked repeatedly by an Orlando police officer while he is sitting passively on a street curb asked on Wednesday that criminal charges to be filed against the officers involved....
....the video only shows a portion of what happened. Carter and his ex-girlfriend were arguing outside the nightclub, and the officers intervened when it appeared that Carter was forcibly pulling the woman away.....
Carter has been charged with domestic battery, resisting arrest and battery on a law enforcement officer. The officers are still working their normal beats.
"Based on witnesses and officer reports, it is clear that Carter was intoxicated, resisting officers, uncooperative and attempted to flee multiple times," Mina said. "We absolutely had an obligation to intervene in any type of altercation, especially something that might be domestic violence."

Wonder how long this will last.
How’d you like to have this guy as your “banker”?
The Amish don’t seem to realize they create a lot of their own problems do they? Sometimes they do make me believe in evolution though...
I was marlin fishing with a guy who had been at cop for decades during the Rodney King thing. He maintained those cops were out of control...
If the dude is "black", let's be honest and say so.
When you force one to say Black, you have lost control of the language. You have surrendered your free speech
Commercial fisherman, roofers, truck drivers to name a few also face death every day without the pay and benefit package that LEO receives. I don’t put LE on a pedestal as the whole system is run as a business, not to protect and serve anything but the system of profit and retirement. There are some LEO that are dedicated for the safety of their community, and I have respect and just as much admiration as I have for the working man doing a hard and dangerous job.
If the dude is “black”, let’s be honest and say so.
Why stop there?
I brought this up yesterday. Maybe Miami "gets it" that lawbreakers can't be allowed to bring up complaints without any discussion of what let up to it. The way the THUG (I said it, my bad) culture works is that as soon as there's the smallest opening in a brick wall, they're going to exploit it beyond all reason.
That clueless TX police chief and now the officer's lawyer engineering apologies and excuses are creating an opening. The policeman should be praised for stopping the situation from getting even worse while he was alone trying to contain chaos. Instead of conveying a police force united in defending and protecting those who follow the law, they could've put themselves in a Ferguson kind of situation.
The Rodney King cops WERE out of control. You don’t beat someone with clubs like that.
I understand he was combative and already had been tasered. But you swarm tackle him and get the cuffs on. Beating them into submission is NOT correct technique.
Why are you bringing "force" into the discussion? I said nothing about "force".
I said: "If the dude is "black", let's be honest and say so."
Words have meaning. "Amish" refers to a group of people who prefer semi-primitive living in a 19th Century style agricultural setting. I'm aware that it also serves as a euphemism for "black" on this forum ... I suggest that the use of said euphemism is a bad idea. It obscures the truth just as much as Big Media's general refusal to describe perpetrators with dark skin obscures the truth.
I am asking for honesty in discourse.
If the perp is 'black' (or "African-American" or "colored" or "of color" or "negro" or whatever), I am suggesting that it is better to say so, than it is to go along with Big Media's habit of obscuring the truth.
What's wrong with you, that you would bring "force" into this discussion?
Well ... if he's "white" we should say so ... if he's "hispanic" we should say so ... if he's "oriental" we should say so ... if he's "indian" (either kind) we should say so ...
That's what you meant, right?
> That’s what you meant, right?
Gratuitious violins against detainees seems all too common. It seems to be an attempt to provide the swift Justice that the Courts don’t.
I read "Amish" on FR when the criminal is black or Muslim, but that is not mentioned in the article. It's not that we are too PC to say "black", it's making fun of the media's refusal to describe criminals if they are members of protected groups.
I agree, the “amish” thing stopped being funny a long time ago. There is no more “wink wink, nudge nudge, know what I mean” left. It has been sucked dry.
You've got that right. What's true is what's true. We are now in the odd (and dangerous) position of self-censorship. No good can come of that.
I haven't yet seen the violin that would put a perp down, no matter how hard you swing it! Now a club...
“Teen” “youth” “aspiring rapper” “gentle giant” are all media approved descriptions for black criminals.
Wonder why the video is not posted? From what I have seen the black man has a good case against the cop.
Also, If the cop was off duty then he may not have the legal protection that he would have if he was on duty in uniform.
