When all hope is lost, leave it to others on the Web to reach out and help. One such example is a garbled letter left behind by a late grandmother, now decoded by other Internet users.
Here is another: a man is assaulted by an officer, trumped up charges are laid, he is jailed for 10 days and his phone is taken. When he gets it back, the footage has clearly been tampered with, leaving nothing but his word against an officer, a pending one-year jail term, a claim that there was no police call and deleted, corrupted files.
The video’s owner has uploaded more recovered videos including one that recorded his 9-1-1 call. He attributes Reddit user rolls20s for saving him from jail and leaves this YouTube description asking for more help recovering files:
Corrupt Video just recovered, more videos still to repair after in police custody for a false violation!
After just calling 911, A police car drives by me even though I’m flagging it down on a narrow road, he drives right past me. I approach the police car wait next to it, obviously indicated that I’m waiting to speak to the officer. INSTEAD the officer approaches me and attacks. Charges me with obstruction of governmental administration a misdemeanor. Penalty 1 year jail. The data on the phone was corrupt and shows signs of tampering and erased data.
The dashcam video they clam was not in the police car at the time, and records of the 911 call have been unable to obtain, yet I have one 🙂 Infact any documents have been hard to obtain. My lawyers name is G____.
I just got this phone back friday after much anguish.
There is even more to recover. If you would like to help recover the other files feel free to download them here.
This event happened the 18th. of july 2013 The officer is still working, and I have a very nice picture of him to help others say clear of a similar situation.
