Police Accidentally Record Themselves Conspiring to Fabricate Criminal Charges Against Protester


Stashed in: police, Po Po!, Don't Get Me Started

'So we get the three troopers at the cruiser talking about what to do. Michael’s permit comes back as valid, they say “oh crap,” and one of the troopers says “we gotta punch a number on this guy,” which means open an investigation in the police database. And he says “we really gotta cover our asses.” And then they have a very long discussion about what to charge Michael with—none of which appear to have any basis in fact. This plays out over eight minutes. They talk about “we could do this, we could do this, we could do this….”'

Kind of amazing that some police officers still don't realize they're being watched all the time. 

Are they in denial or just creatures of habit?
