    Watching start of vid w sound off.

    Just read ^ post #1 and started watching vid w sound off.

    LEO on left side of screen, man in blue clothes behind him, woman w white top on right.

    ~ 1min:35 sec: Girl in pink halter-ish top rushes in between them, confronts woman on right.
    LEO separates them, gets them on ground, cuffs them, puts them in patrol vehicle.
    Think at one point in there, he uses stungun or taser on one.
    I did not hear, don't know what they were saying.

    I wonder why girl in pink top rushed in like she did. Not certain exactly what woman in white top did.
    Looked like pink-top & white-top were starting to fight.
    Could be all wrong, but that's my impression from vid only.
    Would not like to be in LEO's shoes there trying to listen to diff ppl swarming around me by myself. Did LEO have partner on scene or backup on the way?

    Going to watch rest of vid w sound, will post later.

    Bad cop. He deliberately provoked the mom. He refused to deal with the issue of the neighbor assaulting the child and kept trying to provoke the mother, insulting her. The mother hadn't done anything wrong.
    All statements are my opinion only.

    I think the daughter was trying to physically remove her mother
    from the scene.

    RSBM - That was my impression. The mother was (understandably) upset considering her son had just been allegedly assaulted... and the officer was just kind of standing there with his hands on his belt, body language that indicates he isn't really listening/believing. JMO!

    that officer should be looking for a job at the end of this, a job that is not in any area of law enforcement.

    LEO "refused to deal" w the assault issue?
    On vid, LEO was listening to what the Mother was saying, he was asking questions. (I'm not saying he was tactful.)
    Had LEO talked to, asked questions of neighbor-accused assaulter? Or others? IDK.

    What would "dealing w" the assault issue look like? LEO arresting neighbor for assaulting boy? Anyone?
    Could LEO do that? Did he have probable cause to make arrest? Anyone?

    The LEO also questioned why it was wrong for the man to assault her son... "Why not?"

    I'm curious as to the probably cause to make the arrest. Witnesses?

    Shouldn't the officer have been taking some notes? Writing down a name? Taking witness names? He was just standing there. TBH, his body language was irritating me and I'm not the mother whose child was choked by a neighbor. JMO

    Thanks to both of you for bringing this into the discussion. When listening, I missed this.

    Dealing with the assault issue would include talking to witnesses and the accused about the alleged assault. Taking notes. Asking questions about the assault/choking incident.

    Pretty basic process, actually. He didn't do any of those things. Instead, he began "baiting" the mother into an argument, trying to get her to lose her temper. He refused to even discuss the assault accusation.
    All statements are my opinion only.

    "Why don't you teach your son not to litter"

    That isn't the issue here, my man. The issue is an assault on a child.

    First, apparently you and others were able to decipher more audio in clip than I did, as some was unintelligible to me. Again thx for posts on that.

    But how do we - the gen public - know that this LEO did not take the ^ steps?
    Just because we did not see those steps on vid now does not mean he did not do them.
    IDK, but remember the source of the 5+ min vid we saw, the only one I've seen so far.
    Maybe the LEO could have requested some or all these ppl come to PD station to question them and get their stmts on vid right away. IDK but wondering if that would be SOP. Anyone more familiar w protocol?
