Cop Pulls Gun On Teens Having Snowball Fight. What The Supreme Court Ruled On the False Arrest of Sandra Bland. Since the newly released video of Texas State Trooper Brian Encinia detaining then arresting Sandra Bland, it has become clear that the entire arrest was itself illegal.

What The Supreme Court Ruled On the False Arrest of Sandra Bland

The African American civil rights and police accountability activist had simply asserted her rights, when the trooper gave her unlawful orders, which were only permissible if phrased (and accepted) as requests. Three days after the false arrest, Bland was found dead in her jail cell. Now, since that death, the video footage of the dashcam stop has come under increasing scrutiny. But long before it was judged in the court of public opinion, traffic stops just like the one in question were ruled on by the Supreme Court of the United States. Democratic Texas state Senator Royce West weighed in on the video, saying that “once you see what occurred, you will probably agree with me she did not deserve to be placed in custody.” The United States Supreme Court has proven to agree with this position.

Mom Arrested For Stopping Cop From Killing Her Dog Found Not Guilty [Watch]

Credit: Pinterest Tiffanie Hupp, a resident of West Virginia, was thrown to the ground and arrested last year by state troopers after she stepped in between her dog and a state trooper that had pulled his gun and aimed it at the dog. She was charged with misdemeanor obstruction and, despite video evidence showing that she had committed no crime, the case was not dismissed and went to trial nearly a year later. Perhaps one of the saddest parts about the police brutality that has come to light in recent years is the brutality against animals. Videos have surfaced that reveal law enforcement murdering dogs simply because they were barking at them or even just because they approached them and wanted to sniff them.
