Police Brutality, Cops Caught On Video, Southgate Michigan Police Corruption
Welcome to Cops Caught On Video
We do not “hate cops in fact we respect those honest cops as you have one of the toughest jobs on the planet, and we as citizens are very happy to have our officers in a time of need. A Majority of police are good cops, the ones who follow the oath they swore to and who do not violate our rights but protect them. I personally know many excellent law abiding officers that take their oath seriously. They are to be commended, they put their lives on the line everyday for us. To them I say THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
With that being said we believe that no one – not even those with badges – has extra rights especially civil servants who are paid to protect us. The failure to realize and act on that is to our detriment. By focusing the disinfecting light of transparency on public officials we safeguard not just our rights but those of future generations.
This website is created in the honor of ONE Southgate Michigan Officer (Michael Gratz) as my arrest prompted me to make sure to warn others and to stand up for your rights. Also make sure these officers are on video at all times, they cannot be trusted and please make sure you KNOW YOUR RIGHTS POLICE WILL DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO VOILATE YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. (You can read the story of how this website was started) as WE ALL must ban together to fight Police and Judge Corruption!!!!!
NOT GOING TO HAPPEN STAND UP TO THESE THUGS WITH BADGES!
The only way we can hold civil servants accountable is to put videos online so everyone can see how these so called officers who have sworn to a oath to serve and protect us. This site will also provide info/links/articles/videos on how you can protect yourself from over zealous and uneducated cops. If you do you not know your rights they will violate them. their are not here to protect your rights, the officers are here to lie, deceive,, beat, taser, violate your rights, shoot your dogs and take your money.
I am presently on a path to bring the Michigan law to a Federal First Amendment test. That is my goal. It is my duty to do this. They are making me their test case to apply this law widely in Michigan to prevent its citizens from critiquing their police or prosecutors with threats to its citizens about posting factual information online.
The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.
Cops Caught On Video is a decentralized project supported by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared goal of police & Judge accountability.
Thankfully, the First Amendment guarantees us all Freedom of the Press, meaning we have as much as right to to report on and disseminate the news as professional journalists, even if we’ve never set foot in a newsroom. In fact, it’s absolutely crucial that we step up to fill the void left by the mainstream media.
The majority, oppressing an individual, is guilty of a crime, abuses its strength, and by acting on the law of the strongest breaks up the foundations of society.
And we can begin doing that by recording police when they interact with the public, including our very own interactions such as traffic stops. The goal is to not just record possible instances of police abuse, but to remind these officers that we are well aware of our rights to record them in public where they have no expectation of privacy (as they do to us).
After all, it is very clear that many of them don’t know we have that right or most likely would like to convince us we don’t have that right, even though numerous court decisions state otherwise, including the landmark Glik vs Boston decision that specifically stated that Freedom of the Press was guaranteed to all citizens.
I have never been able to conceive how any rational being could propose happiness to himself from the exercise of power over others.
Southgate Michigan Officer Gratz pulled me over for NO reason and the video tape showed exactly that. I guess with Southgate crime rate at a all time high (ranked 79th in the state this year) he figures lets make up shit (blinker seriously go fight REAL CRIME that is affecting us everyday) or better yet instead of making up bullshit stories to see what people are up to or because you feel like searching peoples car because you said you smelled marijuana (We are ALL tired of hearing that bullshit excuse for searching our car) and then come up empty when you searched. Thought you smelled Marijuana Officer Gratz? Then you tell us we are on drugs (another bullshit lie) to again come up empty (strike 2 Officer Gratz) and then needlessly search and towed the car away (as my wife was standing next to the van and had nothing to do with the bullshit arrest, or the passenger who was licensed could have drove it 3 FEET into the spot in the parking lot, and treating my wife like a convict ) Strike 3, NO NEED to treat law abiding people who clearly are cooperating like a piece of shit, yet you still have to act like the douche bag you are, threatening the wife for asking why I was going to jail. How would you like someone treating your wife like a piece of shit for no reason? YOU WOULDN’T!!! Treat people with respect OFFICER GRATZ!!!
This picture says it ALL, a FREAKING BLINKER SERIOUSLY which WAS used a you can see in the video!!!! GO FIGHT REAL CRIME SUPER HERO!!!!! Costing families THOUSANDS of dollars in lawyer and court fines and days missed for work. Congratulations officer Gratz you won the honor of Southgate Michigan douche bag officer of the year!!!!! And of course Officer Mack you came in a close second with your harassing needless pullovers as you weave all over the road. (On Video Gallery page 1) and crying about what your kids will think as you violate OUR RIGHTS!!!!Seems to be something in the water in Southgate Police Dept that makes their officers assholes and see things that are not happening. These officers need to be FIRED and find something else to do other then violate peoples rights. = (more…)
