A drunkard threatens to throw a jacket, and slightly slaps a cop in the face…
…vs a cop punching a man in a wheelchair 3 times in a row, and throwing him backward into the ground.
A bit disproportionate, especially considering the cop is supposed to be sober, good, and one who deescalates a situation and stops harm.
Lovely that he threatens the person he was supposedly protecting too.
Turns out, this cop is already a bad cop. He’d already signed an agreement stating if he fucked up again, he’d be fired, after tipping off a sex criminal in direct violation of a department’s interests. He lied about how many times he hit the man in the wheelchair on the report. And they dropped the charges against Drunken Wheelchair Man as well. They probably would have had a good case against Drunken Wheelchair Man if Asshole Officer Richard Jouppi HADN’T gone overboard and lied about it.
Of course if a camera wasn’t around, the cop’s lies would have stood and court and been sustained in a conviction. Nobody is safe from police lies as long as are deemed a magical truth by any judge.
