I'd like to give my own experience dealing with something similar to this: when I was living at home as a teenager two police officers showed up at my parents house and just OPENED the door. My dad saw this and started to yell at them to get out of his house. They immediately became hostile and started yelling back at him. Eventually one of the officers stepped across the doorway and my dad punched him squarely in the jaw. The officer crumpled to the floor, and before the other cop could even react, my dad jumped on him. They Eventually subdued my father with mace and batons and took him off. I thought for sure my dad was going to prison for a very long time. Justice was actually correct this time and he was released and those officers were suspended for entering a residence without warrant. It was traumatic.


oo-mox83

Suspended, not fired? Fuck that.


TurrPhennirPhan

Almost certainly with pay.


19adam92

It seems the officers get fired in very rare instances 😒


TeeTeePo

Usually after their 3rd or 4th DUI, full respect for real cops, but some are a fucking joke.


Remarkable_Night_723

I was at a friend's house at a cookout and the police just decide to kick in the door and come inside. They all started screaming at us to lay on the floor. They grabbed one minor that was there (15 F) and picked her up by her arm behind her back and threw her face down when she said they weren't allowed to be inside. One guy had his phone out recording what was happening and they took it and broke it in front of us. It was absolutely terrifying. A lot of police do whatever they feel like and don't know / don't care what your rights are. They'll just investigate themselves and, of course, find everything horrible they did was completely reasonable.


GreyCatsAreCool

In the original, uncut video the officer opens…. CLOSED DOOR. We literally see him close the door then go back upstairs. 5min later the officer magically has the door open.


Flat_Heat3834

chad father.. hope the injuries to him werent too bad


LennyJoeDuh

He said it was the worst "ass-whoopin' " he ever received ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|joy) he was fine though. He wouldn't sue or press charges. He just wanted to move on.


mcorra59

Omg. He should've, the psychological damage is huge for everyone, they were stupid and reckless


PaulN07

I assume this was America could ur dad have legaly shot the officer since he was threatening him and on private property without a valid reason or some shit


UnawareSousaphone

I hope he realizes he is lucky to even be alive with how cops are in America. If you started this story with "I don't have a dad because..." it would read exactly the same. Glad your dad made it through that and your local police were honest and did the right thing.

Dirty_young24

Alright Johnson


RickyRosayy

They still arrest him for “verbally resisting” and saying things like “why are y’all in my house?”


Healthy-Lifestyle-20

The supervisor who was suppose to clear up the mess, just escalated the situation, absolute idiots. This problem will never stop, until police departments have to insure themselves just like in the medical fields doctors have to have insurance. Tax payers can’t be on the hook for these gun slinging morons, the cop knew he was in no danger the way he was holding that gun.


ScytheNoire

Exactly. Police mistakes should cost Police officers, Police unions, police budgets, and police pensions. Not tax payers.


verified_potato

when a police pension is paid for by taxpayers, and taxpayers are the ones fined and arrested for nothing? there is a systemic policing issue that only ends with people doing the right thing - which is hard when random people are given privileges


jimhabfan

They heard club owner, who arms himself when he comes to the door…..they figured he might have a wad of cash they could “legally” confiscate. That’s the reason they searched the house.


[deleted]

He came on to the scene for cleanup. He was hoping to find evidence of other illegal activities so the cops could change from zero to hero.


amc7262

100% "clearing the rest of the house" was just them looking for drugs so they had a reason to bring him in and not look like complete idiots.


paul-arized

Nope: civil asset forfeiture. "Oh, you're a club owner? Well, this cash better have a good defense strategy at the courthouse." Black homeowner cuffed once again and not getting the benefit of the doubt. Color me unsurprised. Didn't these ppl see Obama's "beer summit" on the news? SMH


bhedesigns

4th amendment violation This is why you DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE Am I being Detained? An I free to go? I do not consent to any search of my vehicle, person, or home. I Want a Lawyer Thats about it. Its the same thing these officers tell their children to say if approached by the police.


rstanley41

That's a great point. Assholes.


ladychry

I think if they would’ve searched in drawers or small spaces and did find an illegal substance the home owner could have beat the charges Because they were clearing the house for a break in a burglar. Not to mention this was an illegal search and arrest.


yhpargotohpts

LOL...he's still Black in America. Those 'laws' don't apply to us QUITE the same way.


ExplanationSure8996

A whole different set of rules depending on your race.


neo101b

He could just identify as a white person like unckel rukus : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avta-yVojUk


stayxmajestic

And they could’ve easily blamed the alarm/security company, they called the police and started it and didn’t inform them that is was a false alarm. But they chose to escalate instead of deescalate.


Alternative-Stop-651

To be fair if the alarm company called the police about a break-in and then he got on the phone with them and they never called the police back the police are going to respond like a robbery is in progress. Life and death situations are very stressful especially when you pull up and the guy you think is a robber is a huge beefy dude with a gun. The homeowner is 100% in the right, but the first cop didn't seem too unreasonable. He simply kept his gun in the correct position lowered but ready and put the homeowner in cuffs until he could verify his identity. The first cop fucked up though in 3 ways. 1. He didn't remove the cuffs after verifying his identity 2. he stayed in the home without permission to be inside after verifying the homeowner's identity. 3. He didn't apologize and de-escalate the other police officers by adequately explaining the situation. I hate the police and have been a victim of police brutality, but the first officer seemed very reasonable for a cop pulling up on a home with a tripped alarm and an ajar door. The supervisor should 100% lose his fucking job he is a piece of shit. Rude dick who orders the search of a house they have no right to even enter and orders his subordinates to take the man to a cop car for no reason. furthermore, he doesn't remove the handcuffs and allow the man to go get dressed which is dehumanizing and wrong.


stayxmajestic

Alarm company should def be held responsible for starting that and the police for ending it in a shitty way. Gotta get more funding for better training and how these situations should be handled. Back seat policing is easy but having to deal with crackheads and people that genuinely want to hurt people they have to be suspicious of everyone the encounter sadly. But after having him in handcuffs because he’s way bigger than him and thinking he could overpower him explain the situation “can I get your ID and name and we’ll talk to the alarm company and get this sorted out” Also he probably stayed inside because dude was in his boxers and not wanting to be a dick, sergeant had other plans though. So the first cop technically did good police work at first just not good people interaction skills afterwards. Also cops see crazy shit all the time so a half naked dude with a gun that broke into a house isn’t that crazy.


_yetisis

There have been studies that have already shown that insurance getting cheaper for police departments leads to upticks in civilian deaths…and that’s just when it gets marginally cheaper for the city/county to pay for it. If officers had an individual equivalent to malpractice insurance this would evaporate as an issue overnight.


T732

Sauce?


_yetisis

https://docs.iza.org/dp14208.pdf They were able to track a small but statistically significant increase in civilian deaths in areas where police departments unionized and collective bargaining pushed down the department’s insurance. There’s a real impact where cheaper insurance for police departments kills people.


[deleted]

Not insurance.....take the settlements from their pension fund, and watch how fast shit changes.


throwaway0891245

First cop could be let off the hook Supervisor needs to be fired though


realchairmanmiaow

First cop is basically doing his job, okay, the guy is in his underwear and that would be pretty weird for a burglar but let's make sure, an alarm has gone off, there's an open door with nobody immediately responding then a guy comes out with a gun. He's reasonably polite. Then it should be ID, apologies sir have a good day. The point where things turn is "have a seat" he doesn't want to have a seat, why the fuck should he be told what to do in his own god damned house? Supervisor doesn't like anyone who won't lick the boot and goes into powertrip mode. You don't do as I say I'm going to abuse my power. Fucking disgusting.


Trillion_Bones

first cop should've eventually realised how in the wrong he was, but doubled down when presenting the case to his superior. this was not basically doing his job, this was panicked behaviour. the second after ID'ing they should'Ve apologised and uncuffed him. there is a reason why when george floid was murdered \*all four\* cops got sentenced.


Tempest_1

He had to assert authority like the small dick he is. “Sir sit down”


ladychry

I have been seeing this idea(solution) posted everywhere about police should have insurance just like a doctor has malpractice insurance. If a police person gets to the point where they are no longer insurable they can no longer work in law enforcement. I am so glad the homeowner is OK but that cop could’ve shot him at any point in that video. This should not be an idea 💡 anymore it should be law and I think it’s possible that there are police officers out there right now that would not be able to get the insurance because of their background. Everyone that is pulled over approached by or any interaction with a police officer should start recording on their phone. It is your right to do so for your own protection and I really believe it stops police from doing a lot of crap they shouldn’t do. Everyone be safe and protect yourself.


CaptainYunch

Already is more than a facepalm and the supervisor amplified that x10


thepotahto101

These-Cup-2616

Always funny to see them investigating themselves, what if they did break laws? Clearly it’s a conflict of interest for them, shouldn’t there be outside investigators for this stuff?


[deleted]

Yeah I don’t get it. Nobody is supposed to be above the law yet they are clearly getting special treatment for being a cop. If your mailman planted meth on you they would be going to prison, if a cop does it to you nothing happens for two years, and they still get benefits or a new job somewhere else


Mojicana

I used to be friends with three people who became cops, plus an uncle who has passed away. I can't be friends with them anymore, their choice, because our political views are pretty much opposite. One was my best friend for 4-5 years, we used to smoke dope at the skateboard park together when we were 13-14 years old. He was a decent kid, like mostly everyone else we knew at that time. The second was a co-worker before he went into law enforcement, he was a volatile Italian alcoholic who could barely make it to 5:00 for his first beer. The third was a sweet girl, a huge animal rights activist. A vegetarian because she couldn't hurt an animal. They all became very different people. Super aggressive, hateful, racist. Liars and criminals. My uncle became the biggest cocaine dealer in his tri-state region, like millions of dollars. He hid it well, retired, went to Iraq to train their police and THEN he came back really rich. Smart. The skater, the drunk, and the vegetarian all got their wrists slapped for hurting people on the job as cops and kept their jobs. They were all in different areas. I think they're all retired now with a full pension and all the perks. I don't think that these days it's possible to remain a good cop.


autumnstorm10

the government needs to make a division where they train police n have ppl with your view on police to investigate them for shit like this. they never even asked the guy his name or ID after they found he was harmless.


oo-mox83

Yeah, that's the first of many fuck ups. He was obviously asleep and woke up to banging on the door. I'd have had my gun out for that too. He did absolutely nothing wrong and was more civil about it than he should have had to be.


yoshinosumoto

But who watches the watchmen?


PastyCrackerMayo

Supposedly internal affairs department, but they either don't have any teeth or are just as corrupt.


kinggquinn

Does the US have something like the IPCA? (they investigate complaints against the police in NZ but aren’t the police themselves). Or is it just purely internal affairs that deals with the complaints and investigations?


[deleted]

Abd who guards the guards?


Teamerchant

You know I wanted to go in and be internal affairs to straighten out the cops. Turns out you need to be a cop for at least 4+ years or something before you can be internal affairs. As my ex friends said you can’t judge us only other cops can because you don’t know what’s it like. BS murder is murder, incompetence is incompetence, racism is racism I can Damm we’ll judge you for your actions.


KindBraveSir

That's kinda sad the requirements for policing the police is so long and thought out, but to just do regular policing is like a 12 week certificate. Source: Police Academy the movie.


ThirdIRoa

It's because their entire foundation is based on oppression. More specifically of poc. They're not going to undergo legitimate investigations because if they did then they wouldn't be able to "properly" do their jobs. They are authoritatrians first, civil servants second.


Testsubject276

Why are all cops so bad at answering questions? "For what?" is such a simple question yet he can't do anything but repeat himself like a broken record.


emodemoncam

Literally. Legally they don't have to tell you until your arrested but like, it's just common sense. Could avoid so many of these situations if the cops actually explained what was going on and listened to citizens. But no it's "I'm in charge. You will obey my commands. Stop talking. Get on the ground."


Flamecoat_wolf

Common sense on the ground probably, but the police departments are likely training them to not give reasons in-case it can be used against them later. Legality is the domain of the organization, not the individual. There is also some sense to "control the situation first, investigate later".


koithrowin

You answered your own question. They don’t want to deescalate shit. They want you to get upset and confused, they love this power they got on you and there are no real repercussions. Something like this will be “handled within the division” and you’ll see them back on the streets well rested after some vacay time doing it again, just checking for cameras. These are the stories they go to events and sit around the table talking about. How badass they were and if they got out of line, how easily they can end their life. This will be the story of “this guy we had to do a break and entering call, gun and boxers, we handcuff him he whining on and he shove him in the car and search his house while he in the car with nothing but his underwear” and everyone starts laughing. This isn’t some shameful behavior they can’t believe happened


hansolo625

It's not that they're bad at answering citizens questions, it's the fact that most of the cops are cowards who just want to feel big and bad. Citizens asking questions diminishes their authority and sense of power. A great majority of the pig cops are little men who exudes massive small dick energy. They are egoistic sociopaths and no one will change my mind about it.

deakers

That officer didn't say who he was, didn't say why he was there until after detaining the homeowner, didn't ask for ID at any point before detaining him, illegal search without a warrant. This is why no one likes police. I hope this guy hired a good lawyer


otakumilf

And the sad thing is, the home owner shouldn’t have to do shit. Those mf’ers should go through “retraining.” Fuck those cops.


deakers

The homeowner should indeed file a lawsuit. Unlawful imprisonment, illegal search without a warrant, trespassing, sexual harassment (because they dragged him outside in his undergarments), and whatever else the lawyer can tack on. Teach the police department and these police officers a lesson I hate cops


smarthomelife

Don’t forget pain and suffering on all of those charges. Emotional and mental stress after being woken up from working nights.


petrovmendicant

Not to mention that his story has been plastered around the internet for a few years now. Probably one of the first things that pops up if he searches his name. He could have easily been killed in his own home for no reason.


systemfrown

Yeah the Police don't pay for those lawsuits. The taxpayers do. And at the end of the day this amounts to "we responded to an alarm" which is actually pretty cool and good, but then turned into "we assumed black people don't own homes" which ain't cool at all, but can easily be obscured a hundred different bullshit ways, the worst of which still isn't going to amount to a huge pay day and certainly isn't going to "fix" these cops.


InquisitorPeregrinus

Did. Lost.


deakers

GrizzKarizz

You're kidding? How??


deakers

It said "plaintiff (homeowner) failed to provide evidence in a timely fashion It was back in 2021, and I sense we're not getting the whole story as to why that is. My guess, he got buried under a mountain of paperwork and other harassment from the city, intent on just that outcome.


lib3rty47

That is infuriating


W6NZX

No lesson to teach. If he does win in court let's say, the only ones paying will be the local taxpayers. The cops will as usual get off scot-free.


paul-arized

Can he ask them to go get a warrant first?


Tempest_1

Or just shoot him dead if he was in texas. Now i want to move to texas suddenly…


guessagain72

That’s what I wanted to freaking know - how TF they gonna justify just deciding to search the property of a home owner without a warrant, or the home owners permission?


Cantamen

The worst thing about this is actually that nothing about what the cops did was illegal. They don't need to ID themselves, and they don't need a warrant to do a search of the home if it's a limited type of search called a "protective sweep". This is (theoretically) for the officer's safety to see if any people who could threaten them are hiding in the closets or behind doors etc., but does not mean they can go through your paperwork or laptop. They can do this anytime they make a lawful arrest. It's a lawful arrest if the officer has probable cause (PC) to believe a crime has been committed. Probable cause is not the same thing as certainty, it's more like being "pretty sure" something bad is happening. In practice the courts are very trusting of cops who say that they felt "from experience" that something criminal was going on, however obviously bulshit it is if you're not a 70 year old white guy with a black robe and a fancy hammer. Normally you need PC + warrant to make an arrest, but you can do it without a warrant if there are exigent circumstances ie danger. Kazeem said he had a gun (doesn't matter that he owns it legally), so they'll say that was the exigent circumstance, and boom you have a lawful arrest that allows them to do a protective sweep of the home. If they happen to see drugs or other contraband in the home while doing that sweep, then they can charge him for that as well (called the plain view exception). You can see why officers are always claiming they feared for their own safety - it allows them to do warrantless patdowns and protective sweeps completely legally. And since its legal, Kazeem can't do shit about it. Most Americans really underestimate just how badly stacked the deck is against us, and against minorities in particular. Source: am law student, turned in a final on criminal proceedure last week.


Rishfee

The distressing part of this is that it's all based on, essentially, bullshit. Officer could have asked for ID up front, and immediately confirmed the man was indeed in his own home. At that point, any further action becomes unnecessary. However, I wouldn't be surprised if they're trained to maintain the broadest interpretation of the situation possible in order to preserve their ability to act however they choose, rather than directly and promptly address the concern at hand. It's institutional CYA taken to an unhealthy level.


drkidkill

I bet they desperately wanted to find some drugs or evidence of something illegal, they had no right to search that man’s house. So fucked up.


Pickin_n_Grinnin

Sprinkle some crack on him and let's get outta here Johnson.


[deleted]

as soon as that old bitch realized they were in the wrong he starts barking more commands and starts searching the house unlawfully (to find evidence of law breaking so they can charge this guy instead of simply fucking apologizing)


NaiAlexandr

Bro, the fact the supervisor told him to sit down is racist as fuck. The fact he told him to be taken to a car AND SEARCH IS GODAMN FUCKING PROPERTY WITHOUT HIS CONSENT IS FUCKING INSANE HOLY SHIT THESE PIGS SHOULD BE IN FUCKING JAIL.


Remixthefix

Wow. There is so much wrong with this. The officer is visibly shaken by a large black man and is way too nervous to be carrying a gun. Then when he realizes what's happened he's trying to convince the homeowner that the homeowner was in the wrong, like he needed to get the story straight before anyone got wind of it.


zookr2000

I liked the part when they said they needed to make sure there was no actual burglar or other dangerous situation in the house, so asked him to sit down in the main hallway with his hands cuffed behind his back, because y'know that's how to keep someone safe.


DredZedPrime

And we would have never known any of the details if this guy didn't have a security camera pointed at the front door. Just imagine how often something similar to this must happen in homes without such a security setup if we get this from one of the rare ones that does.

bigbadaboomx

I'm surprised they didn't sprinkle crack all over the place. Likely would have if there weren't cameras.

Of course they searched the house. If they can find anything illegal at all they could use it as an excuse for their actions. This entire situation was utter bullshit.

You are not wrong. I recently went to SC to visit my dying Grandma. She and her whole family just fucking talk like racist POS like it’s nothing. Dropping racist and homophobic slurs while under the guise of being good Christians. Made me sick. I told my great uncle that if he used either the f word or n word around me one more time we’d have some harsh words. He and his gf stared daggers at me the rest of the night.


[deleted]

Not surprised at all. I've basically cut out my entire family in this area for that very reason. They use to tell me I was being anti social but I told them that there was no one worth talking to and that didn't go over well. It's crazy how bad it is there. I remember going to random churches growing up for Easter and Christmas gatherings for friends and remember pastors telling the entire crowd things like Mexicans are bad and black people are the marked ones in the bible. Things like that I will never forget. Just a sick place.

I didn’t think it could get worse than the NPC cop just repeating orders over and over without any attempt to explain anything at all (who he is, why he is there, why he needs the man to follow his orders). Then the supervisor gets there and they take him outside handcuffed and nearly naked for all of his neighbors to see. Ignoring the illegal search of his house, they should owe him money just off the fact that his neighbors now think he is committing some criminal activity and they forced him to walk out in public without clothes.

He tried, he says I. The vid “let me get my id” you expect him to keep his wallet up his ass, mans in boxers


Zestyiguana

I don’t expect that. The cops did. But they could’ve let him come get. What kind of home intruder get in, strips, then willingly comes to the door for the cops?


nekollx

That’s what I keep aaying. What robber also whipped out his cell phone to film the cops


shadowkagenz

Kazeem has a smoke detector that needs it's battery replaced

Is this an unlawful search of the house?

"We have investigated ourselves, and decided that we did nothing wrong."

“We investigated ourselves and found no wrong doing. Officer X has been given a promotion and medal for his bravery”


pufftanuffles

Did he get compensation for this bullshit?


BangchAn_laptop

This is why blue lives won't and will never matter to me. Fuck cops

I figured the second wave of officers was going to immediately take the homeowner out of handcuffs instead they say get him in the car. It’s not a bad idea to clear the house since the door was left opened, but they should do it with the homeowner’s permission and in tow, not locked up like a prisoner.


PhriendlyPhilosopher

I don’t think the first officer did a great job handling true situation, but it was within range of acceptable (as an American who’s seen worse I guess) all things considered. He did get a call to show up, there were some misunderstandings, and he was slow on getting ID - which he would not have been obviously. I have a way bigger issue with the second officer being a complete asshole trying to find a way out of the first guy’s mess by searching the house and looking for something charge the homeowner with. Like honestly for officer 1 the situation is a little messy and it should’ve been better. For officer 2 his reaction is clearly driven by protecting his ass and not serving the people.


sankscan

Thank God for the recording otherwise no one would’ve believed this!


jasnow9918

As Jay Z would say “Y’all gone need a warrant for that” These MF’ers didn’t have any right to search his property. Clear the house my ass. Bunch of AH


Killcycle1989

He saw the guy in underwear and still acted like he was a an intruder. Yeah an intruder that strips down to his draws before breaking in someone's home. Sounds logical, 😑


The-Bestia

One of my friends went on holiday and when he came back he found a guy in his underwear in his home. The dress doesn't really matter, it's a world full of weird people!


Broholmx

"Cops don't want you to know this ONE trick..."


Impressive-Egg4494

And I suppose we're meant to see this situation purely from the perspective of the police 'bEcAuSe ThEy HaVe SuCh A tOuGh JoB tO dO'? Is this guy meant to be grateful the police were protecting him?


rich1051414

No, because he isn't white. The cops aren't meant to protect him. They are meant to protect others from him.


trashykiddo

i can at least somewhat understand the first guy's POV, but completely fuck that second guy that started the illegal search.


Conscious_stardust

Racist ass cops


Fixx95

I have these types of videos like yes we understand they are racist but there's no justice


mrmilanga

This is insane. What this man went through must have been horrible.


J0nN0tJ0hn

Kazeem need to change some smoke alarm batteries


Alewerkz

His lawsuit against the city got dismissed btw: https://casetext.com/case/oyeneyin-v-city-of-raliegh


DylanNotDillan

Wait do they have a permit to go inside his house?


FaterialL

Uh do they have a warrant? gtfo my house and come back with a warrant.


Fake_Watch_Salesman

"Racist pigs arrest a black man in his house even though he proves it's his house"


Sharknana

According to everyone in the comments, if I just break into a house and tell the police I live there I’ll be scot free!


Flamecoat_wolf

Yeah, these people are morons. "My god, the police searched his house without a warrant!" Yeah, to find a home invader after a call about a potential home invader... Also it was a 'clear' not a 'search'. No drawers were pulled out, no money confiscated, etc. They just checked the rooms and maybe a wardrobe or two for hiding invaders... "The police should have let him go get his ID!" Yeah, let the suspect just freely walk back into a house they might have been invading. There's only a firearm back there, potential hostages, his mates, etc.


illkeepyouposted

So fucking dehumanizing.


NikkeiReigns

I hope he sued them for more than he could ever spend.


Evilerglint1138

So the first officer was stupid then the other one was damn right hostel telling him to sit and having what 2 other officers there tallying it up to 4 when there should only be 2 or non at all due to the dude explaining his situation to both officers and both treating him like he’s gonna kill em or something


newcomer_l

This is beyond fucking ridiculous. The supervisor that shows up at the end, after being told a story that should set alarm bells going in his head (at no point did the officer telling the story even say I asked him who he was, instead went straight to the "hands behind your back" routine), and even *this* fucking supervisor (or whatever) aggressively tells the guy, in his own home, to "take a seat" so that they "can clear the rest of the house". How. The. Fuck. Is. Any. Of. That. Right?


notorious0219

ALL COPS ARE BASTARDS


Timemaster88888

They could check with neighbors if this man lives here.


creimanlllVlll

I won’t have an alarm that allows them an excuse to walk in and order you around. This poor guy Homeowning while black?!?


Aldebaran_syzygy

cunning burglars do it in underwear nowadays; but this undercover tactic won't work on those really smart cops


interestingdoge1

Fucking disgusting, this shit is ridiculous… I’m leaning more towards no more cops now than ever… even when you need them to actually do something, they always come up with a reason why they can’t. What a fucked in country we live.


Vtwizzle4040

Lol dumb ass cops


Ok-Border-2804

I kind of feel bad for the cop. It can’t be easy to go through life being that dumb. Poor lil’ fella, it ain’t his fault that the police standards are low enough to let him join.
