At least they weren’t shooting the unarmed.

KTLA-5 reported on hidden camera footage that showed some objectionable behavior from police officers during a raid on an unlicensed marijuana dispensary. The cops were recorded playing darts on the job, eating pot-laced baked goods, and even joking about assaulting a woman with an amputated leg.

The footage shows that eight officers had masks on and their guns drawn when they entered Sky High Holistic, shouting “everybody on the ground” to customers and workers. After clearing the building of everyone present, the police began to remove the store’s mounted surveillance cameras, though they did not get the ones hidden by the owners when they heard about the upcoming raid.

Marla James, the amputee seen in the footage, intends to sue the city for allegations of police misconduct. Her reasons stem from a part of the video showing that as soon as she left the building, the cops started to crack jokes about her condition. One cop even said, “I was about to kick her in her f—ing nub.”

“They intimidated me. They threatened me,” James said, who is considered legally blind. “What they did, it was like shooting fish in a barrel.”

The rest of the video appears to show at least two different officers sniff, then eat, the store’s pot edibles, while the other officers sought out the rest of the store’s surveillance devices. Matt Pappas, the attorney who edited the video to cut out dead air, plans to bring a suit against the city on behalf of James and the store. “I’d like to see the police officers disciplined for the behavior that goes on here. I’d like to see the city stop engaging in illegal conduct.”

    Exact what was the purpose of removing the cameras?
    Oh, yeah…the officers felt threatened by them.
    Good thing they didn’t shoot.

    Disabling cameras while committing a crime, throw the book at these officers, this is clearly not what officers of the law are supposed to be doing. Come on now, eating evidence, suppression of and destroying evidence at a crime scene, how much more corrupt and unethical can you get? These people should be held to a higher standard, not given a free pass to commit crimes. If officers of the law don’t have to obey the law, why should anybody have to? Prosecute or don’t expect compliance from the public. The public is getting tired of LEO’s who cheat and are above the law.

      Well said! There is a certain percentage of cops who went into law enforcement to work outside the law. We should be weeding the bad apples out of the system.

      (do I have to mention that I don’t mean all cops? therefore I am not disparaging trustworthy cops who are there to protect the public)

    “At least they weren’t shooting the unarmed”

    Holy cow, are cops now shooting people that don’t have arms? Stop the world, I want to get off.
