WATCH: Texas Cops Escalate Interaction to Arrest and Pepper Spray Innocent Man

Carlos Miller

The man was minding his own business when police arrested and pepper sprayed him.

By now it has become clear that modern-day policing is all about escalating interactions with citizens in order to gain control of the populace – even if the citizens are not breaking any laws.

That is what Lufkin police did a man last year who was doing nothing more than waiting for somebody to come help him with his truck which he was unable to put into reverse. The man who is only identified as "Cold Front" had driven to a trailer park to pick up his younger cousin who had locked herself out of her trailer.

At some point, one of her neighbors peered out and saw Cold Front, eyeing him suspiciously. Cold Front waved at her to try to put her at ease but then she called the cops, telling them about a suspicious black man who appeared to be drunk or on drugs and who had a child in the back seat.

Body cam footage shows that when police arrived, Cold Front explained to them he had picked up his cousin but then his truck started malfunctioning, so he was waiting for somebody to come help. He did not appear to be drunk or on drugs.

When police asked for his name, he refused to provide it because he knew he was under no legal obligation to provide it since Texas is not a stop and identify state. That means, people are only required to provide their name once they have been arrested. In stop and identify states, people are required to provide their name if they are being detained. But police need reasonable suspicion in order to lawfully detain somebody.

While police were trying to intimidate him into identify himself in order to check him for warrants, one officer walked up behind him and said he was going to pat him down for weapons but that was only an excuse to arrest him and accuse him of resisting.

According to the YouTube channel ASD-DOCS who spoke with Cold Front, he ended up charged with evading arrest and paid $1,500 that night to be released from jail. The case is still pending. Watch the shortened edited above and the longer video below with analysis.

And below that are the three original videos from three body cameras.

You are not versed in law like you think you are 🤣 admitting to driving and waiting for someone on private property isn't grounds for shit......

"he refused to provide it because he knew he was under no legal obligation to provide it"

He admitted having driven there in the vehicle and that he had no reason to be in the park (note the admission that his cousin was waiting street side for him). At that point he did have to identify. His refusal then created the detention scenario that authorized the LEOs to frisk.

Not that this could not have been handled differently, but even his cousin seems to think that he does these things for no good reason.

I wholeheartedly think that the woman who had called the police and lied should be thrown in prison for lying 🤥 and those cops just simply don’t mind breaking the laws themselves because they know that the city has to always foot the lawsuits against them.😡😎

This is why every LEO should be required to carry liability insurance. So when they get sued for $h!t like this the money doesn't come out of the taxpayers pocket. Plus the Insurance Co. would automatically be a 3rd party investigator for any payouts. Cops certainly earn the hate.

Salute to the largest criminal gang of thugs in America. They will escalate any contact to be revenue collectors that they are all hired for. The low life's just live to destroy the rights of poor black people.
