It is no surprise that the accuracy of the police story is being questioned..It is a shame that law enforcement have gotten a reputation for lying about arrests and arrests often result in charges being dropped and police found guilty of abuse when the event/arrest is videotaped. People are getting tired of being abused and lied to by politicians, bureaucrats and law enforcement. The TSA has very few friends outside their own families and is an agency that should be abolished.
America is clearly a growing Police State. Note how frequently Police are now wearing masks during arrests/raids.
Fascist Germany, Communist Russia, Cuba , China, and all brutal Totalitarian regimes shared similar police tactics.
The USA has 5% of the worlds population and 25% of the worlds prisoners..Eventually the citizen with a video camera may be replaced by a citizen with a gun and this is not where we want to go. It is past time for our erstwhile leaders to gain control of this "anti-freedom / anti-American" police policy and start welcoming & encouraging citizens to videotape arrests.
The cop and all those bureaucrats supporting his actions need to be FIRED immediately for lack of common sense. This lack of common sense will happen again in a more destructive & serious event involving police brutality..
