The video starts with the officer asking for identification while Brown is walking around to the driver's side. What right does any police officer have to just out of no where ask for ID from a person who is not breaking any law or shows no signs of be under the influence? Police are not allowed to just ask innocent people for ID.
And why were there 4 officers there for a simple parking ticket? I don't get that.
The officers were definitely culpable in that way. That said Brown was a moron for not simply answering the questions, producing his license, and following the officers directions. Then he could simply ask if the officers cam was on, get his answer and leave. Then he could have put in a complaint against the officer for illegal stop and search.
I can tell you didn't watch the whole video.
The video starts with Brown nowhere in sight and the officer wondering why a vehicle parked blocking 2 handicapped spaces in the parking lot. Later, he even tells another officer something along the lines of initially thinking someone had a medical emergency. That said, it wasn't "out of no where" that he asked for Brown's ID. Brown was committing a parking infraction and if you look closely you'll see that the vehicle he was driving read "courtesy vehicle" on the read windshield. So even by running the tag you would get the dealer info and not Brown's. In addition, a majority of those dealer tags are not associated with a specific vehicle and instead come back to the dealer without any vehicle information. Brown may have been innocent of a crime, but he wasn't innocent of a parking violation and the officer had every right to ask for ID. This part is simply irrefutable.
Why were there 4 officers? Honestly, who cares? What's your point? Is there a specific limit when dealing with a non-compliant individual? If you were dealing with a non-complaint individual how many would you want by you? That said, the officer was actually telling the responding officers he was only requesting 1 back-up and seemed a bit embarrassed that so many officers responded.
What illegal stop and frisk did you observe? The officers have every right to have Brown remove his hands from his pockets and the fact he said he was holding something wasn't the smartest thing to say and gave them reasonable suspicion to believe he had a weapon and would be 100% justifiable in conducting a pat-down.
