WATCH: Unhinged Cop Turns to Camera and Smiles before Choking and Beating Man

Carlos Miller

The Virginia state troopers claimed to have smelled marijuana but they found none in the car after pulling the man out.

Knowing he was being live streamed, a Virginia state trooper turned to the camera and smiled before placing a man in a chokehold and pulling him out of his car over the suspected smell of marijuana.

"Watch the show, folks," Trooper Charles Hewitt said to the camera before attacking Derrick Thompson.

Turns out, Derrick Thompson did not have any weed in the car. He just didn't want his rights violated.

Thompson had been pulled over for an expired inspection tag when the cop claimed she smelled weed and ordered him out of the car. But Thompson refused to step out, claiming it to be an illegal search. He also believed he was being racially profiled.

The cop called for backup and Hewitt arrived.

"You are going to get your ass whooped in front of fucking lord and all of creation!" Hewitt yelled at Thompson before pulling him out.

Hewitt later told Thompson there was no way he could be racist because he was married to a Black woman. Thompson's attorney, however, said that appears to be a lie.

The incident took place on April 20, 2019 but it is just coming to light now after Thompson's attorney sent a letter to Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring outlining the details that took place that day. The letter also includes racist posts from Hewitt's Facebook page.

Police in this country has long used the "smell of marijuana" excuse as a way to search people's cars but that tactic should be legally obsolete with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill which legalized hemp at the federal level. Hemp looks and smells just like marijuana so the smell of weed could just as easily be the smell of hemp which is why prosecutors are now dismissing such cases.

It does not appear a lawsuit has been filed in this case at this time. Read the letter to the attorney general here.

UPDATE: Thompson was convicted for obstruction of government but now that the video has surfaced, Hewitt has been placed on paid administrative leave, according to the Washington Post.

See that’s where y’all are wrong, we tax payers pay for their services. On their vehicles days to protect and serve, not to enforce and dictate. He had no marijuana in his so he did not have to exit his vehicle. He should not have been arrested for simply disobeying an officer i mean listen to how that sounds. You have a right to ask to speak to a higher if you feel you’re being illegally detained which he was but black people don’t get that right, if we insert our rights we’re being what’s the word, “snappy”

Did you read the article? Dude had expired tags—That’s why he was pulled over, female officer claimed she smelled marijuana and told him to step out, when he refused, she called back up.
Back up arrived as the goon we see here with the badge.
Point blank, expired tags, ticket and you’re already wrong. He should’ve hit the camera on record and stepped out when the lady cop asked and recorded her doing an illegal search.
Problem solved, body unharmed and untouched.
He could’ve handled that an entirely different way. I thank God I have a strong, smart and poised man who is not weak, but not dumb and dramatic.
We have to ACT smart in these situations—especially when we know the game is rigged.
He could have either A—had his tags up to date, it happened in April, he may have even gotten a reprieve with covid..but it’s like, the way that went, things could’ve gotten a lot worse b/c that roid-rager they called to the scene has issues, clearly.

Or B: complied with what the officers asked of him, step out and record the whole time. Take it to court!

Neither of them are right. First, once it escalates to step out of your car please you've got to comply, because everyone knows what's about to go down at that point. The officers standing around have no choice at that point. It is a lawful order, you've got to comply and the results are going to be the same regardless of race religion color or creed. All of the officers screaming and yelling and threatening is bullshit. At this point, the officer should have pulled cars front and back of his car. Requested a supervisor and started a video camera themselves and approached the car and requested he step out. There is a processes. If you don't think it doesn't happen to white people, I can point out the same shit happening. The police need new training, but you don't get that when the Union is paying off politicians. Its called regimen protection. Oh, and I happen to know this is complete bullshit. I've known this man over 20 years. He's a retired Army officer, I've seen the video they suppressed. He had to plead guilty to their bullshit. Also, if you go look at the Sheriff's department and police department there, there have been a string of abuses and as the population is mostly white they continue to do it. https://www.wrcbtv.com/story/38580994/fourth-of-july-atv-crash-leads-to-scuffle-child-endangerment-charge

That officer was trying to egg the driver on; he was in his face like when you go to Bootcamp and they're trynna push you and make sure you're tough enough. The officer intentionally antagonized him. If you are up to date with the world, racism does include antagonization!! The officer referred to himself as a specimen yet didn't respect that man's space at all!! He came into his car, unbuckled him, threatened him a few times then drug him out his own car. How do you immediately demand attention then disregard his primal needs as well? Cops do not have compassion they just act then act like they can do no wrong when the whole encounter was intended to show the officer has power over him. Unfortunately, officers don't like it when people prove to them they know their rights because part of being an officer is violating the simplest rights of humans (started off as slave catchers- technically they don't stand for freedom or upholding the law equally among man) and that is sick. It's outright abuse of power and yes it is a pussy move because it means you value power so much that you know it makes/defines you. The officer completely attempted to project his power. It's in the way he spoke to him, he wanted to get physical shit its the first thing he mentioned, he thought god would be watching too when god has got to be tired of watching cops abuse their power and act indecently. This is a conversation of ethics and cops miss the mark way too often and thus cannot represent the people as our protectors if they way too often do not see civilians as humans too.

It’s funny how these cops forget the 5th Amendment and the 14th, but they sure love the 2nd. Someone check and make sure his wife isn’t black because we need to go full scale rescue operation if that’s the case. And also, I hope this man rots in prison.

This driver makes me so upset, he deliberately resisted just to provoke the cop.
he is the problem. there is no unhinged cop or black man getting beat! He said he was not resisting but yet refused to get out of the car. In what world was this cop supposed to just get in his car and drive away. No cop has the ability to know what is or is not in the car without a search. If cops just wimped out every time some jerk was filming, we'd have a worse world for our kids to grow up in. This driver wanted a video and the only way he could make himself a victim was to resist the police on tape. This reminds me when the little kids starting screaming their parents beating them and threatening to call the police on them to scare their parents from spanking them. Just making a scene to make yourself a victim.This driver is NOT above the law. I do not know who this driver thinks he is. you know English. Just get out the damn car dude. Why are you trying to be a victim.

These comments are absolutely awful from both sides of the fence. I don't understand what can possibly be accomplished from all of this blame here blame there. Yes there is a HUGE SYSTEMATIC RACISM ISSUE in the United States...but the people at fault are the ones we elect into public office...the propaganda spewing throughout the media further promotes bigotry towards every race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation. The government wants upheaval so they can invoke martial law and remove our civil rights as a whole. When this time comes will we still be Prejudice against one another? Or will we rise together against those in power who have oppressed and fooled us all? The sins of the past are catching up fast...but we can band together to save our futures...we can unite. Love is the answer NOT HATE!
