“Friendly” Officer Threatens to Break Teen’s Legs

Miguel Cruz | FilmingCops.com

Teenager Hamza Jeylani was one of the latest victims of what the ACLU is calling “disparity in the way police” interact with black and white people in Minneapolis, in a new report.

According to the ACLU website, teen Jeylani and four friends were stopped and told to step out of their car after making a U-turn in a church parking lot after a game of basketball at the local YMCA.
That is when Officer Rod Webber made the threat. “If you fuck with me I’m going to break your legs before you get a chance to run.”
In the video Jeylani shows no sign of resisting, and even asks the officer, “Who says I am going to run?”
Although the police claim that they arrested Jeylani on suspicion of stealing a blue Honda Civic, Jeylani said that the driver of the vehicle had proof that he owned the car, a blue Toyota Camry.

The video shows Webber telling Jeylani that he had been arrested because the officer “felt like arresting” the teen.

    PEOPLE, WHEN ANYONE WHILE UNDER COLOR OF LAW VIOLATES YOUR RIGHTS THEY ARE COMMITTING A FEDERAL OFFENSE PUNISHABLE BY UP TO ONE YEAR IN PRISON FOR EACH OFFENSE. IF A LIVE IS LOST DURING THIS VIOLATION THEN THE DEATH PENALTY IS AUTOMATICALLY BROUGHT ON THE TABLE.

    THIS IS NOT STATE OR LOCAL, BUT FEDERAL. PUSH FOR THESE CHARGES! ASK IN THE PRESS WHY THESE FEDERAL CRIMINAL CHARGES ARE NOT BEING BROUGHT UPON THOSE THAT USE THE COLOR OF LAW AS A WAY TO VIOLATE YOUR RIGHTS!

    THE FACT THAT THIS COLOR OF LAW CHARGE EVEN EXISTS SHOWS THAT THOSE WHO WORK UNDER THE GUISE OF THE LAW ARE EXPECTED TO HOLD THEMSELVES AND BE HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD!

    ALL cops are bastards.

  • Bill Catz

    All I know is that if there is ever any kind of problem, the last person I would contact would be a cop. I used to trust them. I worked along side of them. But, I can’t trust any of them anymore. Your whole life you were taught to trust the police. During training a cop is taught to NEVER TRUST YOU. Keep that in mind.

      You need to realize that the Democrats and Republicans are of the same entity, but operate under different names to give the illusion of choice. It is the ENTIRE government doing these things. They all need to go, from top to bottom. George Washington himself told us that a party system while be the demise of this country. Sounds like ole George was wise far far beyond his years.

        The most ignorant political statement that anyone can make is that both parties are the same.

        • Anthony Edwards

          It’s also a general fallacy. No two things can be exactly the same. It is almost impossible.

    This displays everything that is wrong with the cops and why people hate them.

  • Garrett Johnson

    Not a fucking thing is going to be done about this. They’ll get off on some made up technicality and that’ll be it. Seriously, these pigs could go into a courtroom during a live telecast and randomly shoot a person in the head, and they’d STILL get off…

  • Ben Dover

    … and I should feel sorry on the very rare occasion that a cop should have his head blown off?

  • Clive

    Another POS cop. How unsurprising. If “I’m going to break your legs” and “I’m arresting you because I feel like it” are examples of him being Officer Friendly, I’d hate to see him on a normal day let alone a bad one.
