Viral Video Of The Day?



So says this news story. But I'm not sure why the comments on youtube and the news story have so much outrage.

But it's a pretty good law school criminal law question (and I'm making some factual assumptions) : Can a cop enter the home of a third person without a warrant to arrest a person for committing a Class C offense (disorderly conduct) when the cop didn't witness the offense?  In Texas, I believe the answer is no. (But it could be argued that the offense of evading detention occurred if the guy opened the door to the cop and the cop asked him to step outside to discuss the incident. I'd like to know what happened before the filming began.)

Texas peace officers can't enter a private place, without a warrant, for a misdemeanor offense.

Surprised the cop didn't shoot the dog for licking him.

So sick of cops acting like people should just shut up and take it just because they have a badge.

Would it have been so hard to answer the guy? He's just asking the question "What am I being arrested for?"

The problem is, most cops are the biggest dorks you will ever meet. They simply don't know how to talk to people like a normal human being.

Porky the pig in that video is lucky. That guy looks like he could have laid officer Fatty out with one punch.

When you have tried and failed at everything else, you are then qualified to become a cop.

This "innocent black man" was out on his porch yelling obscenities and threatening his neighbors. When the police come, he runs inside and that's the part you have here.

Fact: this blog hates cops. Of course until you hear a noise outside your window and run to call 911.

Whether or not the arrest is lawful, you cant resist according to the Texas laws.

The only mistake I see that the cop made was the lack of back up officers and 10 or so batons.

Barry, I'm sure if you searched real hard you could find some Lawyer videos that would be equally entertaining as the cop videos you post. You might pay close attention to your lifestyle. Because most people that are always disrespecting the cops usually have something hidden in the closet.
