Memphis police practice lethal threats to two citizens on a porch, including a pregnant woman, during the filmed arrest of a defendant. Note bad language. 3 minutes.
As the modern nation-state declines, the rationale for military organizations called “police departments” fades. Police departments are perhaps the most dangerous of armed gang in any city and are the source of violence and trouble. Eventually residents of Memphis and Chattanooga will call for their abolition in exchange for alternative means of maintaining public order. The encounter reported on here is humiliating, emasculating, dishonoring of any common citizen such as the man who made the video. Cops are a tremendous source of antagonism and loathing, and (now that I think of it) bad for local economy and free markets. — DJT

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A video uploaded to Facebook yesterday afternoon, is causing serious backlash against the tactics being used by police to serve an arrest warrant.
As the video begins, several heavily armed men can be seen arresting a man who appeared to be fully compliant with their instructions. Within seconds this “typical” arrest would become yet another example of the incredulous behavior we so often see in the police state.
As the camera pans upward, one of the men noticeably has his weapon trained on the man filming the incident. The man filming immediately asks them why they have a gun pointed in his direction, to which one paranoid cop replies, “So we don’t get shot.”
The man who uploaded the video, identified as Corterian Bay Wright, according to his Facebook page, responds by informing the militarized force that he was the one that brought the man being placed under arrest to the door. While having a shotgun aimed directly at him, he continues to plead with the heavily armed thugs to “Put the guns down.”
After his requests go unheeded, Corterian informs the men that his fiancee (who is next to him) is pregnant. The man who has his weapon drawn responds in typical authoritarian manner, by trying to order him around on his own property. This smug response is no doubt an attempt to intimidate a man simply for exercising his rights to film the encounter.
The man kept the weapon trained on Corterian, even after the suspect being arrested was secured in a vehicle and the individuals who were witnessing the encounter had complied with demands to go back inside their house. When Corterian makes yet another polite request for the men to stop pointing his weapon at him, the men continue to bark orders for him to go upstairs. Corterian astutely recognizes the inherent ridiculousness of this order and responds simply “I ain’t gotta go where you want me to go.”
After several more moments of an intense “standoff” between the two men, the cop finally relents and lowers his weapon.
