Police Brutality, Cops Caught On Video, Southgate Michigan Police Corruption
Welcome to Cops Caught On Video
Our mission is to educate and inform the public about issues that endanger our rights and liberties, and to work to fix them through non-violent and legal means.
A complete paradigm shift will be necessary to save this country’s freedom. A necessary part of this involves a massive information campaign to expose the crimes of the police state and promote freedom-based alternatives. We are part of that information campaign.
What we are Not
Cops Caught On Video does not promote the idea that all police officers are devils. We do not intend to use a broad brush and blindly bash every cop. We TRULY appreciate those Civil Servants who courageously protect us from harm. Our outrage is targeted specifically at individual people and at individual policies that are responsible for corruption and abuse and those POLICE CHIEFS that allow this behavior to continue instead of training your officers to respect OUR RIGHTS. We recognize that police officers are only human and no more corruptible than anyone else. However, that corruption will not be tolerated.
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!!!!!
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.
Police Chiefs favorite sentence. And the reason we have these issues, Police Chiefs are allowing these actions and the Police Chiefs MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ALLOWING POLICE CORRUPTION, MORTALITY ISSUES AND DOG KILLERS!!!!

We the People of the United States come to you demanding that you immediately terminate without delay Officer Sabo from the Wyandotte Michigan Police Department. On October 5th, 2014, Officer Sabo intercepted a call sent out to Animal Control on a loose dog report. Officer Sabo arrived on scene, parked his car at the end of an alley where the dog was seen. Many witnesses claimed that the officer had gotten out of his police car and began calling to a dog known as Buster. Buster belonged to the Brooke Yurkunas-Mccuiston family. Another patrol car was parked at the opposite end of the alley as if to block Buster in the alleyway. As Officer Sabo stood outside his car he called and whistled to Buster to come to him. Obeying the officer’s command, Buster started for Sabo.
Officer Sabo then drew his gun and shot Buster. Buster, then scared and injured, quickly retreated in the opposite direction as the officer moved towards him…shooting him a second and fatal shot. Buster was a one year old puppy and never showed aggression. Officer Sabo was never in any danger and no bites or scratches were inflicted upon the officer or anyone. Buster never made it to the man in uniform that had commanded him to come. He had no chance and even though he retreated after the first shot, Officer Sabo’s intentions were clearly to kill the dog. Buster laid there and died all alone. Neighbors witnessed this unnecessary shooting and have made statements to the family. Buster’s Mom, Brooke went to claim his body as it lay there in the alley a short distance from his home. Officer Sabo ordered Brooke to move away from the dog. When asked why she could not take her baby home, she was told Animal Control was on the way and they would be taking the body.
