Bizarre Confrontation With Toledo Cop Caught on Video

Amanda Warren
Activist Post

An incident with one policeman in Toledo, Ohio escalated over the weekend and was caught on film in Washington Township, Lucas County. Already chaotic, the scene gets more heated as more angry words and swearing are interchanged; and finally, after a few minutes, other bystanders start appearing.

According to the description, the couple in question, who are flat face forward on the road with their hands behind their backs in cuffs, wound up there after asking the officer to move his car because it was blocking their driveway. He had apparently parked there while ticketing another person.

[Language Warning]

"This is not Toledo - Buddy!" and "Shut-up!" can be heard from the officer pointing a weapon at their heads. According to a witness calling for backup, it looked like he was about to taze one of them.

Previously,  the recorder suggests "call a different cop." When they do reach Toledo police to "help an officer in distress," this frustrates the officer because he keeps saying it's not Toledo - the address given is in Toledo. Washington Township is in and around Toledo and has a Toledo address - if Toledo police cannot be called in this instance, who can? Apparently, more were on the way.

He puts the boy's hands behind his back and says, "Who are you?" "I'm his son." He points in his face and says, "When the police tell you not to do something - that's who you listen to! ... I told you to get out of the truck!" He mentions a couple of times, "You do not approach a police officer..." but trails off.

The woman screaming alleged that the officer had thrown them down to the ground and smashed her phone. He forces her to get up and stand behind the tailgate of the truck with her arms wrenched up behind her back. He orders her to sit on the tailgate: "Sit your ass on the tailgate! Sit! Sit up there!"

The man in the black shirt, now under arrest asks for phone help, mentioning two young children still in the truck. The officer yells at the male witness and tosses his phone down. "Go! Get out! Go! I don't need you people - Go!" When a bystander asked, "What's you sayin' is you don't need witnesses?" The officer(?) responded, "It's all on camera anyway, it don't matter."

Mission statement of Washington Township police:
The Washington Township Police Department, in partnership with our community, is dedicated to preserving the peace and quality of life in Washington Township.
The couple recording didn't seem too affected, however, and placed the video in YouTube's comedy category. If this were you and your family - how would you best handle the situation?

A call to the police station returned no response. A currently unanswered email to the station for more information is pending - updates will be provided if there is a response.

Hmmn... im VERY suspicious about these people who were treated in such a horrible, scary and clearly illegal manner putting their video on youtube as a comedy..i doubt they were laughing. I have no doubt the video was reposted there by "soneone" w a vested intetest in making light of this situation so it would be brushed under the rug.

A couple of neighbors with baseball bats should have administered a lesson so that this thug would be eating his donuts through a straw for the next 6 months.

Pretty obvious officer was in a combat zone and surrounded by vile obscenity speaking trailer trash, the mans lucky he wasn,t spit at or bitten by any of the denizens.
Who knows by just this tape, that woman might oof been one of those types President Bill Clinton talked about, female Trailer trash that all you had to do was drag a Twenty dollar bill out the window and they come running.
You have to laugh, it was funny, and who realy gives a crap that a cop showed thos people just how fn worthless they realy are.
Residents take baseball bats and do what with them. What for?
Headlines, poor white unruly residents at Sloppy Joe dmoes trailer court, located at some place in slums that may or might not be in Toledo, beat up a poor policeman. who was just trying to do his duty and arrest other unruly residents.
Residents that could not afford $30-$130 baseball bats, nor having any balls, threw vile obscenities while making lewd and most obviously obscene gestures at the poor officer.

This is what happens when we give our rights and authority to our government. It is every person's responsibility to guard their rights and enforce the laws. When we give the control to do those things to a so called professional and give away our guns and means to stop out of control government we are screwed.

These cops are always fat and stupid thugs, and never held accountable. There are 10 times more cops than we need. Everyone hates cops today because this kind of abuse and outrage is the NORM. Tell your city council and county commissioners to start firing cops. We don't need them and we don't want them. This is how they fill their work, with harassing people for simply asking them to move their illegally parked vehicles.

There must be more to the story than just what we saw, especially since the video starts after the couple is already down and cuffed. Oh who am I kidding? This is America, we always rush to judgement without getting the full story.

Anonymous, they did not say that the people who were attacked by the cop were the ones who posted the video on the comedy section of Youtube. They said it was the witnesses actually taping the incident who posted the video.

Wow. Did you see that? That fat biker gangbanger kicked that tiny Shih Tzu dog. Never even saw a Hell's Angel do that. Well, I guess the family should consider itself lucky that the fat gangbanger didn't shoot that tiny dog.
I'm also not sure why Americans/Canadians haven't started fighting back. But I guess that's the nature of humans. But at the very least, cops should not be called cops. These are gangbangers. Call them what they are: Gangbangers. Gangbangers! That's what they are! Calling them cops gives them a veneer of legitimacy. Simply call them what they legitimately are. Gangbangers.

That is how administrations from municipal to the White House consider the majority of citizens of USA. They will stomp on you, grind you up and spit you out but you still vote them into power not even understanding they don't answer to you anymore. They are the puppets doing they are told.You think your taxes pay their wages,NOT! The Shadow Govt. pays their wages and expect they will treat you all just like this guy does. IRS collects illegal money known as taxes and deposits that cash into Federal Reserve which is their own bank account.Oh and these prize specimens of humanity are exactly who the "FEMA" installations are made for. Thousands of prisoners called trail trash, red necks, hillbillies, etc. get my drift!

Do what the Police Officer tells you to do... No problems. Why do people have to be so defiant in the face of authority?

Because we don't like our common sense being trampled on, that's why!

Police Officer: Jump off bridge.
Civilian: sure officer, why should i care to argue

the video is missing the beginning, but even still, after the "supposed suspects are subdued" why are they continually being berated? and with all three, the cop intentionally makes it a painful action to get them up.

if we don't stand up... "When they come for me and no one was there..." will surely come to pass.

it's horrible that this continues even in the face of all the video surveillance by the public, which seems absolutely necessary at this point of continued escalation.


Maybe communities need to set up an emergency defense force to defend citizens against rogue cops like this criminal SOB. Imagine how much change in cop policies 10, 20, 30 or more baseball wielding citizens could make.

It's interesting to see most of the comments are anonymous! Just shows how afraid of the government everyone is. Perhaps they would become 'disappeared' if they put their names to the comments. What a terrible society.

No excuse for pointing a weapon at people that are already retrained, he should be fired immediately.

I personally know good people who were harassed and BEATEN up by the police. I think these pigs enjoy hurting people. I have gotten 2 solicitation calls in the last month to make donations to the Police Benevolent Society. I clearly told them I do not like the manner in which the police treat the public, and to remove my name and phone number off their list.
PO-PO equals brutality.

brad said...

Hide Behind - so if you are illegally detained, accosted, injured/hurt it's all right?
If you think income is the demarcation point between who deserves to be damaged and have their rights destroyed you are absolutely stupid and fooled by the false paradigms the wealthy people use to enslave YOU.
Stupid puke this time, man. That is just so wrong - to have a scale of applicable freedoms dependent upon how they fall within your judgemental bigotry.
Wake up - you are the problem.

First they took out the cops.
But,I did not speak out because I am not a cop.
Then they took out the criminals.

Then they took out the Politicians.

Then they came to me and said will you help us rebuild our country.

I wanna see this video from the beginning when the officer 1st pulled these loud dirty mouthed people over. He should have back up and in dash police video. They are resisting arrest and will be spending so time in jail when the courts get through with them. That one guy that called 911, was recorded and will be great evidence for officer Hart when he requested help because these people were abusive. For all the cop haters, get your facts straight before you make judgement.

Fact is regardless of what we did not see. He had them restrained and berated and abused them. Hes a worthless cock sucker of an officer.

Police agencies are now hiring steroid addicts who get off on treating people this way; this is roid rage and it's out of control. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior by someone with a gun and a badge.
