Man Assaulted, Arrested, Cellphone Illegally Confiscated after Filming a Car on Fire posted 09/30/2014, 2:35 PM (The Free Thought Project)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Bonney Lake, WA — A Bonney Lake man says he was assaulted, arrested and his cellphone stolen by police, because he was filming a fire in his neighborhood.

Silis Verdant like all of his other neighbors were curious about a car parked on their street that was on fire, so he began filming.
“I hopped out and I just started filming with my phone,” said Verdant.
According to KIRO 7, Verdant lives a few doors down and says he wanted to record the chaotic scene; there were fire trucks and two police cruisers — one from Bonney Lake, the other Pierce County.
“I asked the officer from Bonney Lake his information and he didn’t say anything, so I kind of just walked past to try to film what was going on. They asked me to step back and I stepped back,” Verdant told KIRO 7.
Verdant said when he asked for the Bonney Lake police officer’s name and badge number for the second time, the Pierce County deputy grabbed his phone, grabbed him, put him under arrest, and ticketed him for obstruction— all while neighbors watched.

KIRO 7 interviewed a witness at the scene who actually yelled out at police that what they were doing was brutality.
“I just watched him go like this and just stiff-arm this guy right in the chest,” neighbor Easton Richards said. “And I was like ‘man that’s police brutality!’”
According to the Pierce County Sheriff’s office, Verdant was arrested because they said he was warned that he was too close to a potential crime scene. He disagrees and so does the other witness, Richards.
“He didn’t go past the fire truck, he didn’t do nothing,” Richards said.
Verdant’s phone was confiscated and despite him filing a request to have it returned, he was told it would

The shooting death of John Crawford in an Ohio Walmart store well illustrates the difference between private security and monopoly government security which is the final judge of its own actions, and which enjoys essentially limitless access to cash via the taxpayer.

During the 1980s, Miami was a rich, glittering, southern city, awash in cocaine, and all sorts of other illegal drugs.
