Body Cam: Cop Assaults Woman for Not “Rolling Down Her Window All the Way” (Video) | The Free Thought Project 
A Police Officer’s Body Cam captured his severe over reaction on film.
On September 4, 2013, University of Central Florida (UCF) college student Victoria King was pulled over by UCFPD Officer Timothy Isaacs for a minor traffic offense – a bad tail light.
The officer became obsessed and incensed by Ms. King being reluctant to roll down her window “all the way” to receive her bad tail light ticket.
The officer then escalated the traffic stop to violence, breaking out the car window, and charging Ms. King with two felonies and a misdemeanor.
The two felonies have been abandoned by the state attorney.
All the officer had to do was hand the woman her ticket and go on about his revenue collecting. Instead he opted for a power trip.
Instead of simply citing her, he began to require the woman to obey every verbal command he gave, regardless of having a legitimate function to his issuance of the citation.
Orlando criminal defense attorney John Guidry (www.jgcrimlaw.com), sums up the officers command:

“The officer’s command to roll down the window ‘all the way’ does not sound like much of an imposition. But it is an unlawful command, and as such, it is not much different than the officer telling Ms. King to stand on her head. Stand on her head? What possible connection does that have with writing a citation for a broken tail light? Well, it has none, as does the officer’s claim that a partially rolled down window is somehow a safety concern. It is not. The officer’s order was arbitrary, is not for the safety of the officer, and, in fact, serves no purpose whatsoever.
“If Ms. King is accused of ‘resisting an officer’ for her failure to roll down her window fully, Florida Statute 843.02 requires that the officer be engaged in the legal execution of any legal duty. It would appear, then, that before Ms. King is required to obey the order of the officer, the order must be legal from the beginning. Clearly, this officer’s order was illegal, and as such, Ms. King’s charges should be dismissed.”

Here is the body cam footage in its entirety
what safety is he trying to have? why is he irritated? he could have slipped the sheet though the window without submerging his hand and she was ready to reach out the window to get it. To me it seemed like a woman who doesn’t not intend to be disobedient, but she is clearly irritated at the sever punishment of the traffic offense, be he didn’t need to break the window, and if he hadn’t tried so hard to force his hand through he wouldn’t have needed to break it. he said she started rolling the window, that is before he put his hand in, meaning that he was attempting to do something that wasn’t even necessary.

Anonymous said: How do you handle the the situation if someone asks if God supports being gay? What do you think about it?

proverbs31v25:

Ephesians 4:15 has some pretty sound instruction, it says to "speak the truth…in love." IN LOVE. Let me just link that to the attributes in 1 Corinthians 13; love is patient, kind, it doesn’t envy / boast, it isn’t irritable, its not resentful, it bears all things. 1 Peter 3:15 teaches us to proclaim the truth with “gentleness and respect.” We must uphold the truth of God’s Word but in a loving, gentle, and respectful manner. We must be honest about what the bible says but at the same time our message should be focused on the forgiveness and freedom from sin that are available through the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Bible says homosexuality is a sin (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9). I don’t believe homosexuality is the way God intended things to be HOWEVER (like that’s a really big however) this doesn’t give me any right whatsoever to treat someone who is gay any differently. The Bible does not describe homosexuality as a greater sin than any other. All sin is offensive to God, no specific sin offends God more than others. We have all fallen short of God’s amazing perfect standard and just because my sin struggle is different to theirs does not make me superior in anyway whatsoever. I have judged others, lied, disobeyed my parents, dishonored God’s holy day, among many many other things. Yet God’s unfailing, amazing grace and mercy never ceases to drown me, even washing my shame away. God’s forgiveness is readily available for us all, no matter our sin struggle. He promises the strength for victory over sin to all those who will believe in Jesus Christ for salvation. As a Christian, I have been called to continually love people regardless of whether I agree with what they do, it would be so hypocritical of me to treat them any differently. And I wouldn’t want to. No matter who they are, God loves them immensely and therefore so should I.

The Muse brothers had an incredible career. The story of the two black albino brothers from Roanoke, Virginia is unique even in the bizarre world of freaks and sideshow. They were initially exploited and then later hailed for their unintentional role in civil rights.

Born in the 1890’s the pair were scouted by sideshow agents and kidnapped in 1899 by bounty hunters working in the employ of an unknown sideshow promoter. Black albinos, being extremely rare, would have been an extremely lucrative attraction. They were falsely told that their mother was dead, and that they would never be returning home.

The brothers began to tour. To accentuate their already unusual appearance, their handler had the brothers grow out their hair into long white dreadlocks. In 1922 showman Al G. Barnes began showcasing the brothers in his circus as White Ecuadorian cannibals Eko and Iko. When that gimmick failed to attract crowds the brothers were rechristened the ‘Sheep-Headed Men’ and later, in 1923, the ‘Ambassadors from Mars’.

As the ‘Men from Mars’ the two traveled extensively with the Barnes circus. Unfortunately, while they were being fed, housed and trained in playing the mandolin, they were not being paid.

In the mid 1920’s the Muse brothers toured with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. In 1927, while visiting their hometown, their mother finally tracked them down. She fought to free her sons, some 20 years after their disappearance. She threatened to sue and the Muse brothers were freed.

The brothers filed a lawsuit for the wages they earned but were never paid. They initially demanded a lump-sum payment of 100,000. However, as time passed the Muse brothers missed the crowds, the attention and the opportunities sideshow provided. Their lawyer got them a smaller lump-sum payment and a substantial contract with a flat monthly wage. The pair returned to show business in 1928.

During their first season back they played Madison Square Garden and drew over 10,000 spectators during each of their performances. They made spectacular money as their new contract allowed them to sell their own merchandise and keep all the profits for themselves. In the 1930’s they toured Europe, Asia and Australia. They performed for royals and dignitaries including the Queen of England. In 1937 they returned to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for several years and finally ended their career in 1961 with the Clyde Beatty Circus.

The brothers returned to their hometown and lived together in a house they originally purchased for their mother. Neither brother married, though they were well known for their many extravagant courtships.

George Muse died in 1971 and many expected Willie to quickly follow his brother. Those people were wrong as Willie continued to play his mandolin and enjoy the company friends and family until his death on Good Friday of 2001.

He was 108 years old.

What is Jesus interested in?

Is that what I am looking out for as I live out my life day to day?

Or am I looking more to my own interests?

WHY WASNT THIS NATIONAL NEWS?!

I think we know why.

This made Atlanta news because it happened not far from where I live. It was only a few months after Sandy Hook and I just remember crying from relief when I heard about this woman and how she managed to prevent another tragedy through compassion and empathy.

She’s amazing.

A saltire was burned today. I’m still disgusted. People have been stabbed and beaten today. Nazi salutes were thrown infront of a war memorial today. Young people have had abuse hurled at them left and right. Do not ignore this. Do not ignore what’s happening in Glasgow tonight.

if you’re not gaelic or not residing in scotland it is your duty to make this blow up.
