my comments on #2 and #3 point out the responsibility of the army driver to comply with orders, something he repeatedly refused to do (I'm talking about the clear orders when just one cop is talking)
This is what I saw and heard: (Time stamps are from Gutierrez bodycam)
18:36:16 - Crocker - Unintelligible (Gutierrez is exiting vehicle)
18:36:20 - Crocker to Nazario "Put your hands out the window"
18:36:23 - Crocker to Nazario "Put your hands out the window"
18:36:26 - Crocker to Nazario "Turn the vehicle off and put your hands out the window"
18:36:30 - Gutierrez to Crocker "How many occupants?"
18:36:38 - Crocker to Nazario "Put your hands out the vehicle and turn the vehicle off" [sic]
18:36:46 - Crocker to Nazario "Put your hands out the window"
18:36:52 - Gutierrez to Crocker "Coming around your side"
18:36:53 - Crocker to Nazario "Let's see your hands"
18:36:58 - Crocker to Nazario "How many occupants are in your vehicle?"
18:36:59 - Crocker to Nazario "How many occupants are in your vehicle?"
18:37:00 - Gutierrez levels his pistol and we can now finally see what Nazario's hands are out the window.
I'm going to have to disagree with the description of, "clear orders when just one cop is talking."
Crocker's orders become mixed almost immediately and are dangerously contradictory at about the 20 second point.
The cops shouldn't have made mistakes. They should have issued clear orders. But....
I keep hearing the word, "but" as justification for two officers going even farther down the bad path they've taken but it doesn't work that way. The law doesn't work that way. Law enforcement doesn't work that way.
Honest questions for you LUHE:
Do you understand the type of stop this was? (Gutierrez states it at 18:36:20)
Do you understand that these stops must rest on reasonable suspicion the suspect is a dangerous felon?
And that without that reasonable suspicion, the officers are on the wrong side of the law themselves?
With respect, LUHE, you've picked a horrible example. And we haven't even gotten to the threats of false charges and the ruining Nazaio's career yet.
