Friend of mine got stopped at the border by US Customs. Big misunderstanding, he was let go. But they drew their firearms and told him to put his hands outside the car. He complied. Then they instructed him to get out of the car. He replied “but my hands”.


SGZF2

Makes me think of that dude who was killed while the cop was screaming contradictory commands at him. Might be misremembering some details, but basically the cop told him to keep his hands on his head, then told him to crawl towards him, but when the guy moved his hands to start crawling the cop told him to keep his hands on his head. Eventually he started awkwardly crawling on his belly, which caused his pants to slide down, so he reached down to pull them up and the cop immediately lit him up.


Michelanvalo

Daniel Shaver. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Daniel_Shaver


Harmxn-

I don't think I will ever forget that video. The guy was just trying to pull up his pants and he got shot 4 times. ​ Oh and literally fuck that police officer, so fucking indecisive and loud


Pure_Tower

> Oh and literally fuck that police officer, so fucking indecisive and loud Remember that there were **two** involved. The one shouting the insane orders and threats was the superior, and he retired and move to the Philippines. The other officer did the shooting, and he's the one who was fired, then rehired so that he could go on disability for "PTSD".


No-Definition1474

For those who don't know, 'retired and moved to the Phillipines' usually means ' took his money and went somewhere its easy to pay off cops and the age of consent is fluid.' For real. Its pretty common in poorer Asian countries to find middle aged western men with many very 'young female friends.' The younger shithead who did the shooting had 'your fucked' etched into the side of his gun. He just desperately wanted to kill people.


SGZF2

I'm not religious, but I was raised going to church and our pastor often went on "mission trips" to southeast Asia by himself. Later we found out he had a bunch of little girls there he liked to... uhhh... visit


No-Definition1474

Yeah, i lived in Asia for 7 years and as an American over there you run into a LOT of these guys. Then as I got older and my wife and I worked in the corporate world we ran into more. Its...a lot more widespread then people seem to think.


SGZF2

Lol I remember a few years ago when Elon Musk accused that random businessman of being a pedophile simply because he spent a lot of time in southeast Asia. I remember thinking "that's a fucked up and baseless accusation... BUT" hahaha


inblacksuits

Plus the office gets 2k a month now for the rest of his life as disability payments


Harmxn-

Yeah I read that in the article, like what the actual fuck dude.


CandidateOk2966

5 times, also yeah fuck that guy he should be in prison but instead he gets paid for being a murderer


AmbitiousAd6354

That cop 1000% wanted to kill that guy


flatfast90

Worst police shooting I’ve ever seen. Literally crawling on his hands and knees, sobbing and begging them not to shoot him and they blow him the fuck away. That cop should have been fried


Zanytiger6

That could’ve been anyone in that situation. Gave him ridiculous orders and killed him because he couldn’t keep up. How hard is, “On the ground arms stretched out?”


kwikthroabomb

Yea. The guy who was a random, uninvolved bystander on a raid on a different hotel room. IIRC, the officer didn't face any disciplinary action either


M0ngoose_

He actually ended up getting compensation from the state later on for mental damage after executing someone who was in tears, fully complying, and innocent of any crime. Unfortunate cases like that aren’t well known and the officer is able to escape accountability because the victim is a white man.


Tatunkawitco

That case was well known. The final end result of that jackass getting compensated was not. What a fucked up system.


LukesRightHandMan

The innocent man's name was Daniel Shaver. The cop [murdered him for fun. ](https://www.cbsnews.com/news/mesa-police-shooting-daniel-shaver-seen-crawling-begging-in-disturbing-video/)


Sunagaan

I don't know about the white community but the black community was talking about this. We even used this as an example about how police are out of control because at around the same time we had cops entering homes and killing innocent black people.


stonedinwpg

Best country in the world right? Lol


Orangebeardo

> Unfortunate cases like that aren’t well known and the officer is able to escape accountability because the victim is a white man. ...what? That makes no sense. The officer would escape accountability easier if the victim were not a white man.


SappyPJs

He is right, either ya’ll dunno how to read or just triggered cuz white but police officers are easily able to escape accountability if their victim is POC.


kinder_me

Didn’t he get retirement and claimed PTDS?🤨🧐


mamaaaoooo

yep, Post-Traumatic Down's Syndrome


Tear_Agile

Different room? He was showing off a air rifle and someone called the police. He was seen through his hotel room window. Not defending what happened, just pointing out a correction.


GrimWolf216

I will never forget that. It was atrocious.


iCryptToo

Oh yah, that guys pants were falling off so he instinctively went to pull them up while he was crawling and got lit up. I think… I don’t remember too well either.


PlayfulSeaUrchin

You're right. I have that video ingrained in my head. People are animals.


MaximumGlum9503

So horrifying to watch so many officers take down a guy like that


Tiny_Establishment52

Yeah Daniel Schaffer, he was done wrong.


kiklion

A local instance near me had a guy show up to his ex’s employment with a gun. When the police got there, he was squatting next to his car with the door open and the gun in his lap. The police officer repeatedly yelled at him to drop the gun, then when he eventually reached for it (in order to, you know, drop it like he was ordered to) she shot and killed him.


Oldmanfirebobby

Obviously it’s much easier to say this when you don’t have a gun pointed at you. But my thought would be open it from the outside. Keeping your hands out of the vehicle at all times.


GearM2

Most cars are locked from the outside unless you have unlocked it while at rest.


MrSandman619

Every car that I've been in that locks automatically when you start drive also unlocks when you put it in park


Greatsayain

I have a civic and it unlocks the doors when the driver opens the door from the inside. I've never tried to open it from the outside but what kind of useless lock would it be if you could.


LukesRightHandMan

Legit. Am I the only person who sometimes sits in their car when they get home who doesn't want a rando coming up and opening my door on me?


Beastmunger

The only people who don’t sit there and finish their song or whatever are psychopaths


no_dice_grandma

None of mine have ever auto unlocked in park. They auto unlock when the key is off and the driver door opens. This is across Ford, Toyota, and Chevy in my experience.


cosxcam

Not my manual VW golf mk4. Once you go about 15mph, all doors lock, but only unlock via the interior handle, the key fob, or the electric unlock switch.


WideAwakeNotSleeping

Same here, but with a different VW. Going above 15 kmh locks the doors, and they cannot be opened from outside even if I'm parked and engine off.


2Leauxkey

I gotta 5 speed mk4 jetta and I agree.. the locked door unlocks when you pull the handle to get out.. some of these folks prolly never drove a stick either tho cause we don't have a "Park" lol all we can do is pull it out of gear wiggle the shifter and yank the hand brake


cosxcam

A fellow member of the "check engine light is always on" club. Also a perfect description of the shifter wiggle to make sure you're not in gear.


hitemlow

Have a work truck like that. Was so irritating when you went to open the other doors and they were *always* locked because of that shit. Eventually had to look up the disable method, which involved turning the truck on and off 3 times and spamming the unlock button.


NomyNameisntMatt

don’t think most unlock when it’s in park they unlock when it’s in park and a front door has been opened


henstepl

Every car that you've been in? Damn, I shouldn't feel old but I do.


kerthil

My car has a setting. It's set to unlock after the driver door opens from the inside.


Yatakak

Good luck with the seatbelt lol.


CocoCherryPop

then what happened? how’d he get out of the car?


5125237143

cops complied and put their butt to his hands


AmatureProgrammer

What happen next? How comply?


dolerbom

"I didn't say Simon says" Blat blat blat!!!


Trashyanon089

Well yeah if your hands are supposed to be up and outside the window, how're you going to open the door?


Rod___father

You open the door from outside. Edit. Never mind. My broke ass has an old truck. Wife’s car won’t let you till you unlock or turn off


sublevelstreetpusher

Is the idiot the guy with the airsoft or the law lady pointing a real gun at her partners ass at 0:16?


marleezy123

Seems like the set up for a Reno 911 skit


Lil_Comrad3

It did for a couple seconds lmao, this camera man for sure recorded vines back in the day


turnedonbyadime

Everything about how they're holding their weapons makes me so uncomfortable. It's like watching someone hold a chainsaw by pinching it.


EvryMthrF_ngThrd

Or a soldering iron by the "heated" tip.


waynEthainsaNe

Yep and you can hear one of the officers telling her to watch her crossfire. Basically telling her to point the gun somewhere else.


[deleted]

She looks really uncomfortable holding a gun.


JohnDax

she thought it was a taser....


damnatio_memoriae

too soon man, too soon


HingleMcCringle_

Never too soon in these cases.


legoracer18

Yes, it's both of them.


Xiten

Yes I really hate how she flagged him and how she holds her fire arm, it’s triggering.


Hunt1ngw01f

Totally saw that too, she totally muzzled her partner, I dont even shoot (despite being an american lmfao) and know better


Objective-Highlight4

don't flag your buddy!


Then-Cryptographer96

She was flagging the shit out of him! That was the main thing I noticed out of all this shit!


Expandexplorelive

Our POV means we can't tell whether it's pointed at her partner or to his right side.


maciekozi

Yes, because you can see its an airsoft from a mile away


IluvPumpkinPie84

One of each


wreckanoyter

Lol holy shit


Plantsandanger

Yeah I’m not entirely sure who the idiot is. He got pulled over with what looks like a rather large weapon while black in the US and didn’t get shot... thats fucking expert level “not dying” and more r/unexpected material.


solvsamorvincet

I mean cops have proven they're the shittiest handlers of firearms of them all


Charming_Extension

I was scared this was gonna go a different direction.


cerberus698

It kinda almost did. At one point he had one officer giving him an order to keep his hands outside the car and then another office, at almost the exact same time, ordered him to exit the car. A reasonable person who chose to follow the order to exit the vehicle very likely would have put their hand back into the car to open the door with the interior handle like you usually do and then the officer who gave the order to keep his hands outside would have probably shot him for complying with the other officer's contradictory order.


asdf333aza

Sounds about typical for American police. "Stop resisting" as they choke the life out of you. "Stop moving" as you flinch from being struck by them. "Stop running" as they chase after you while pointing a gun at you. "I feared for my life" as they approach you with a batbelt full of weapons and you an unarmed citizen. Etc.... We are surprised that he didn't get shot. That should tell your the state of things aren't exactly right.


Contundo

“Stop resisting” while a dog is chewing on your arm..


Unblest_Devotee

That’s actually good advice. If the dogs feel any pain or the person pulls away during a bite, they bite down harder.


SGZF2

I hate when they say "stop resisting" while they have a guy pinned down in a painful position. Do they realize how much willpower it would take to not resist in that situation? You're not resisting so that you can escape the police. You're just resisting the extremely painful position they have you in. Most of the time if the cops would have just chilled the fuck out and got off of the guy he would have quit "resisting" a long time ago. Even if I know I'm in the wrong, know that there is no escape, and am completely willing to turn myself in, I'm not just going to relax while there are cops piling on top of me and bending my body like a pretzel.


CollectableRat

BLAM BLAM BLAM I didn't say Simon Says...


Skyraider96

Makes you wonder why the fuck isn't it trained ONE officer tells the suspects to do something.


sup3r87

hopefully whatever department this is caught onto that. i'd be conflicted and scared shitless too


-Entheogenenthusiast

I think some places probably literally teach the officers to do that.


KaJuNator

Me too. I was thinking he was about to have four different officers all shouting four different instructions. What could go wrong??


Regalingual

The world’s deadliest game of Simon Says


mrbombasticat

Like that guy that got killed crawling on the floor of a hotel begging for his life because the officers shouted contradictory instructions? edit: this guy https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n1pJe_Tcdeg


joegr2005

Public defender is gonna have a hard time defending this one.


4Ever2Thee

Better call Saul


ThePrussianGrippe

At least this guy didn’t have sex with a head. ^^That ^^we ^^know ^^of.


MissPicklechips

I’m pretty sure that even Saul Goodman wouldn’t touch this one.


ArtAndCraftBeers

Not a criminal lawyer, a criminal/lawyer.


bluesix

[Lionel Hutz](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFtbd_pd9rY)


NaiveMastermind

We've got conjecture and hearsay. Those are kinds of evidence.


NaiveMastermind

Mr. Simpson I'll have you know I've attended trial in all fifty states. Most of them as a lawyer.


bluesix

That’s why you’re the judge, and I’m the law… talking… guy.


Dakoja

If it is real and the suppressor/faux suppressor is pinned and welded making the barrel and muzzle device over 16 inches it's perfectly legal


a_vague_username

This is NYC, it's not legal. Even if it's an airsoft lol


blipsonascope

These are clearly NYPD based on their insignia, so no it's not at all legal. Suppressors and other NFA items are illegal in NYS, AR-15s are illegal in NYC, and 30 Rd magazines aren't legal in NYS as well.


Chaos_Theory_mk1

Perfectly legal to own sure, but definitely not perfectly legal to have in a vehicle like he did. In most states if you’re transporting a gun it must be unloaded, in plain sight or in a carry box for the gun, and out of reach/access of the driver of the vehicle. Clearly none of those three apply here, so he’s definitely still doing something illegal.


Imperialkniight

Not in Texas. Car = home. Transport anyway you want its your property.


trashykiddo

does this still apply with a concealed carry license? also in some states like arizona i dont think you even need a license to concealed carry, so does it still apply there too?


[deleted]

[удалено]


CatTongueCunnilingus

Shit I'm from the south and my state has the same laws. It's super lame n yah know that seems like it should be common sense way


Cautious-Fix-3926

Are you sure? I think the suppressor is illegal either way


OriginalRagerFox

I thought I heard him say it was an air soft rifle.


Dakoja

They aren't illegal in all states. They're relatively easy to get as well. Make a trust, submit prints and photo with a tax stamp, and wait for approval. Edit: In case you want to learn more https://silencerco.com/yes-silencers-are-legal/


Appropriate-Being594

Legal in AZ. $200 + supressor


Tickle_da_toes

Yea…..uhhhh have you ever gone through the process of getting one???? Cause it wasn’t “easy” to wait 18 months and all the paper work bullshit for a $1500 dead air suppressor


Puzzled_Pay8172

Mine was 200$ and 6 month


Dakoja

I did say "Relatively" 😂


sipes216

The defense will be only to make sure he's prosecuted correctly, fairly. Don't expect more work.


PM_me_XboxGold_Codes

What, an air soft gun? They’re not illegal.


redpandaeater

No clue what happened before this clip started. I assume something stupid, but based purely on the clip it's hard to see if they even had cause to search his vehicle.


my-other-throwaway90

Don't need cause to do a plain view search.


LEONotTheLion

They already knew about the gun. That much is clear in the video.


EgbertCream

She calls her rifle a baby.


holysufferindyin

That’s what I call mine


Pope_Squirrely

Yes, the guy is an idiot. The female cop is also an idiot for walking behind the male cop with her gun still drawn. She should have either pointed it at the ground or into the air when walking behind him. Putting the male officer between her and where she is pointing the gun is asking for an incident.


RAH2458

I saw that too and was thinking "are you kidding me?".....I'm not anti police but I tell people that there are cops out there that should never have ever been allowed to become a cop.....


Simba19891

Do they watch replays like referees? If not, they NEED to!


Goalie_deacon

Heck, I point away from teammates in video games.


redpandaeater

I don't know why we think it's fine for cops to point guns at people all the time anyway.


-Entheogenenthusiast

Facts it’s just like normal lol Why


Super_Hans2020

I'm not sure what the circumstances here are, but if it's someone who's known to be armed and dangerous, how would you approach the car? Especially if he has done something like killed someone and is now on the run. How do you approach this person without a gun or a weapon of some sort? Having said that I'm not from US so no clue if they pull out guns if you're just caught speeding or something, that would be wrong.


sumsaph

dont worry bruh, they dont hand out real guns or live ammunition to female cops. they are there just for the sake of diversity.


Pghdude412

Holy shit r/unexpected


SimplyAvro

Yeah, I'm with the guy going holy shit after they pull it out.


downforanything1983

Whats this and why is it here?


curfty

Well they were driving around in a car (with a baby onboard) pointing or flashing an air soft gun at people. So they’re obviously idiots in a car.


redduck53

God decided that baby gonna have a shitty life


patkenz

Gonna have a hard time convincing child services that they’re fit enough to parent a child


Sug0115

The parents decided that


MiniatureChi

Where did you get airsoft gun from? How does everyone but me know about this aursoft gun part of the video that’s not on video


curfty

The people in the car claimed several times that it was an airsoft gun, and they make some very realistic looking ones.


IntelligentNerve1394

I believe it is an air soft gun.


SimplyAvro

I mean, in the same way the Magnox Odyssey's light gun is just that. A light gun. It isn't something you should [point around all willy-nilly anyways](https://youtu.be/kDAKxjG7VaI?t=603).


kittyismyname

Plot twist, they call their gun Baby.


victechy

Lady cop, getting ready to shoot her partner in the back.


OddCockpitSpacer

Did that idiot chick cop just flag the back of that dude cop?!?! Seriously. Watch yer damn muzzle man.


drunken_chinchilla

I came here to say the same thing. Neither one of those cops should be allowed to have a gun by the looks of it. Please someone train these people at least a little.


OddCockpitSpacer

Yep. Training! And they wonder why cops have bad reputations and stereotypes.


legoracer18

Training requires funding.


RAH2458

Training requires a person that trainable to begin with......


WantedHavoc

Trust me the military shows you can train the dumbest mfs how to use these weapons


hitemlow

Yes, but that requires accountability. Cops hate that like a 5 year old hates broccoli.


RAH2458

Good point.....7 years in the army and I've seen that but it gets pounded into you in the military......cop school is different.....


OddCockpitSpacer

Both are true. I’m good with increasing the funds for training as long as the bar goes up too. ;)


thecleve1

That was the first thing I saw and was like WTF is that


phoenixthekat

Yes. This is a pretty good representation of how well trained most cops are. She had no idea she just pointed her gun at her partners back.


PgARmed

It's okay. The police target hit rate is about 20% so there was an 80% chance she would miss the other cop....... wait, maybe it's the other way around, there's an 80% chance he will get shot by her missed shots.


Burst_LoL

Where did you get these numbers from?


WheezeTheJuice2

no one gonna point out how many times the cops flagged each other? they definitely need more training in close quarters


Nizzemancer

jesus fucking christ the female officer aimed her gun at her partners back while going around him...


equinci_ocha

lots of "its just an airsoft gun" comments here. alright... go ahead and take a look at what they pulled from the car and tell if it's a toy in those few seconds. ya really can't.


Couchcurrency

Who is the idiot? It’s the idiot blond who points her weapons directly at her partners spine while she’s crossing over to passenger side.


Aglarond

I feel like the real idiot here is the officer who didn't even lower her gun when moving behind her partner and instead just kept it pointed right at him. Wow.


Odlavso

He was smart enough to keep his hands out the window and not move. If he sneezed they would have shot him!


No_Presentation1242

Not sure why you’re getting downvoted, but I was thinking the same thing the whole time.


Burst_LoL

Probably why you shouldn’t drive around with a realistic looking AR in your car. If you don’t want to be shot then don’t do that lol


Far_Negotiation5584

It's all good everyone, it's only my airsoft gun that looks like it's from Call of Duty.


theweirdlip

That’s a weird looking baby


lAVENTUSl

That was a gun, not a baby.


SignificantLeader

Mmm, this is why cops are so aggressive


[deleted]

[удалено]


Allistondan

I know nothing about guns or gun safety but I’m betting it’s taught NOT to cross paths behind another officer with your finger on the trigger and gun raised.


Necessary-Chemical-7

“There’s a baby in here!” And a big freakin gun, but we won’t mention that.


Houghs

Did that female officer just sweep her gun across her partners back? What an idiot.


Forty083

The title of this video makes no sense. Should say somebody go arrested


xTurkishBruvx

You can hear the chick say “its an airsoft rifle” when they pull him out the car.


earnestmerida

If he did have a baby in the car, he should automatically get double the time that he’s getting


LoneStarkers

Of course for a minute the subject is using the baby as a shield of sorts, but on another note it occurs to me it must be hard with all the cell phone cameras now for cops to follow the actual procedures they were taught.


Mully_bee

Jesus …. This is terrifying . You could be sitting at a light next to this guy with your family and not even know he had an assault rifle in his lap.


astrexis

There's a baby in the car the car The baby:


allChickensFearRice

Always count on the female cop to sweep her partner with her gun. Walks behind the guy with her gun pointed at his back at 0:15.


TheeSciGuy

See what happens when you comply with police


The_QC

The fact he didn’t try to do anything more stupid than he already did is actually a good thing. I definitely expected worse to happen


Upstairs_Cow

Wonder what happened. But why’s this shit in this sub lmfao idgaf about some 19 year old wannabe getting caught with an ounce of weed


xoArkanoidox

so he had a gun the cops stopped him for some reason. told him to put his hands out side. he did. they opened the door. got the gun. pulled him out. no one got hurt. everybody is good. dont see anything wrong here.


dubbznyc

Situations like this really make me have sympathy for cops. He had a serious firearm at his side and could have easily shot a bunch of officers. Imagine trying to make that arrest knowing there’s a baby in the car?


TurnUpCharlie

Can you hear ppl saying it’s an airsoft towards the end?


loneill97

Even if it is, it looks a hell of a lot like a suppressed rifle. They’re right to be extremely cautious. Not only that, why do you have it in the front seat with you?


redpandaeater

I assume because he was doing something stupid with it that gave the police cause to go after him like that and be able to search his vehicle.


MrRedditPoliceman

Yep. Doesn’t matter if it’s a banana that looks exactly like a gun. They are going to treat you as if it is an actual gun.


TurnUpCharlie

Yep


doctaj5

I could definitely be wrong, but it looks to be an eotech hh-1 variable zoom sight on it. Airsoft gun. Right….


TheArtWalrus

50/50 on that. I used to have a decent scope on a pellet rifle, not that he appears to be plinking at possums...


Illramyourlatch

Right, because companies that can make lookalike airsoft copies of firearms definitely couldn't make a cheap lookalike copy of a sight.


helf1x

A lot of airsofters will fork out the dosh to get real attachments for their guns, although I doubt this moron is one of them. Their are tons of incredibly accurate imitation things in Airsoft. Photorealism is a huge part of the hobby.


doctaj5

Didn’t know that was a think. TIL. May take me a minute to get my foot out of my mouth. Please stand by.


youni89

These people are parents? Geezus


FormosanLife2020

When they said there’s a baby in the car, was that what he’d named that huge gun? 😂


Big_Iron_Jim

Bonus idiot: Officer Barbie not even looking down the sights of her gun, walking directly behind the other officer instead of covering a different angle, flagging the fuck out of him with her pistol while she walked behind him for no reason and got to the passenger side of the vehicle so she could cover...nothing apparently. And then just completely disappearing once a bunch of other male officers showed up to cuff the suspect. Great work. Girl power.


Ieatshortz

Crazy what happens when you comply


curiouscuriousmtl

Do the people thinking the lady cop put a gun to her partner know she was moving in three dimensions or what


VaCa4311

I don't get it? We need more context, how is he an idiot?


Burst_LoL

Driving around with a gun that looks like an AR is a start 😂


Ecw218

Not judging the suspect in video, but this looks like NYC and firearms are strictly regulated within city limits. It’s extremely difficult to get a handgun carry permit, whether this was a rifle or pistol, if he doesn’t have a permit he’s in big trouble. If it’s an illegal firearm due to its configuration he’s in more trouble. If it’s any of the above and they had a child in the car I’m guessing they’ll try charging for child endangerment too.
