On December 20, 2011, a deranged deputy working for the King County Sheriff's Department of Washington state picked the wrong man to harass. The result was a seven-month long internal investigation and 30 pages of paperwork for an altercation that only lasted a few minutes, even though there was no crime committed.
Sometimes, the little guy wins. Not with weapons or guns, but with facts and a fundamental understanding of the law. The term "a reasonable suspicion that there is a crime being committed or about to be committed" is a very slippery slope in law enforcement. It allows any police officer, whether they're inexperienced or irrational or just a glorified bully hiding behind the cloak of authority, to stop innocent citizens and detain them.
The Boys of East Precinct is a true story of police harassment and cover-up. It also empowers innocent citizens to protect themselves against out-of-control police officers whose only agenda is to use physical and sometimes deadly force stemming from emotion and anger.

Oh, for different narration!
Michael Eads may have some valid points in his story but he does himself no service at all in the way he narrates. Instead of sounding reasonable in his presentation, he sounds like a little boy in the school yard. "Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah! Well, that's not true. I'll show you! You can't talk to me like that."
I am from a law enforcement family in Washington State. Certainly not all officers are stellar representatives of their profession but I must confess to having some sympathy for this officer having to deal with this individual. You will notice that I have not commented on the particulars of the offense, perceived or factual. After listening to an hour and a half of this two and a half hour tirade, I've heard enough not to care to listen to the rest.
