Video: California Police Break into Private Residence, Taze Person Filming

May 14, 2013

A video depicting police from the City of Cotati, California forcing their way into someone’s home and then tazing the person filming the incident is causing an uproar on YouTube and LiveLeak.

Displaying utter disregard for the US Constitution, one of four police officers announces they will enter the home due to a domestic violence call, as the persons inside the house argue, “There is no domestic violence, just an argument with yelling,” and relay sections of the Fourth Amendment that dictate probable cause and a warrant be obtained prior to police entering someone’s home.

Around twenty seconds into the video, one of the officers is seen holstering either a firearm or a Taser.

The officer in charge next asks how many children are in the house, likely assessing the amount of psychological trauma that will soon be dealt out, before asking the persons inside the home why they’re not coming out, to which the person filming answers, “Because we don’t live in a police state, sir. Martial law has not been established in this country.”

Ignoring the person’s response, the officer tells the residents to get down on the floor with their hands behind their backs “because we’re gonna kick the door.”

What comes next is a chilling example of what could happen to anyone in any home in America if police are allowed unrestrained free rein.

Although difficult to pinpoint exactly why police found it necessary to invade the person’s home and privacy, it can be assumed that the documented home invasion, constitutional violation and destruction of property would likely have never been brought to light if the person had not filmed the event.

In just four hours, the Live Leak video has been played over 15,655 times.

    Any corporate copper who entered this property should be sued in an American common law Court or at worse a fraud known as a US Court. These police should be sued for unlawful intrusion and bodily harm/assault. This is disgusting and must be stopped, image what it will be like in a full blown martial law situation. The US Constitution is being trampled up and so they should be punished for their actions.
