    Well imagine that, no shock there. If it weren't for surveillance video this fellow would be in prison right now.

    Makes you kind of want to go out and buy surveillance video for all of your property doesn't it?

    If you can't trust the police to tell the truth, who Can you trust?

    All police officers might want to remember that there are eyes everywhere now, in case any of them are ever tempted to lie.

    It's not what you know it's what you can prove, right? 3 highly decorated officers said you did something, so it must be a fact right?

    The Poor Man spent 10 days in jail, before a magistrate saw his video and saw that all three officers were officially lying in their reports.

    10 days is long enough for most men to lose their good job that they had, all on a bunch of lies.

    Minus the video, this is how people are falsely convicted of crimes that they never committed and spend decades in prison.

    All 3 cops should be state guests. Sharing their experiences with friend and neighbors.

    This could explain the problem.

    Maybe they all sat back and laughed about how awesome that leg sweep was.

    I just want everyone to understand that just because a large number of deputies say something happened, doesn't mean that it did happen. Don't be so quick to condemn somebody on the words of a large number of deputies.

    Any bets the "talk" was more about not getting it caught on camera than not telling blatant lies?

    I don't think the officers care, it's not their money, it's not their savings, it's not their payroll check, it's not their pensions, it's not their 401ks, it's the taxpayers, so they really don't feel the hurt.

    However, I believe they should.

    It's a sheriff's office, so recall or next election they can get someone that cares.

    IIRC punitive damages in cases like that are not dischargeable in bankruptcy and highly likely not covered by most insurance policies.

    I would not be at all surprised that cop is deep on the hook with about no way off. Might be one of those things where he has to basically own or earn nothing. For a long time.

    I wonder if the guy will take the awards and move? Not sure I would want to stay there.

    Uh...no, the deputies sure should be, but not the victim.
