Default Police: 'No evidence' of excessive force in Michael Bennett incident



Quote:

The body camera of the officer who initially detained Bennett was not turned on. Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Friday that police sorted through 861 videos, including from body cameras from other officers and hotel security cameras, and found that 193 were pertinent to the investigation. From there, they said they pieced together a timeline of the incident and played video for the media at a news conference. They said Bennett's detainment lasted about 10 minutes, seven of which were spent in a police car.

The video shown by police showed an officer with his weapon drawn over Bennett on the sidewalk. Police said Bennett was handcuffed, moved to a police vehicle and spoken to by another officer, who told Bennett that police were looking for an active shooter. After an exchange with police that lasted a few minutes, police took the handcuffs off Bennett and he was told he could leave. Bennett shook one of the officers' hands and walked away.


Quote:
Bennett told reporters earlier this month that the incident was "a traumatic experience for me and my family" and he was considering filing a civil rights lawsuit.

Bennett first gave his side of the incident on Twitter on Sept 6. He said that officers pointed guns at him "for doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time" and ordered him to lie down on the ground.

Bennett wrote that one officer, with his gun drawn, warned him that he would "blow my f---ing head off" if he moved. Another officer jammed his knee into Bennett's back and handcuffed him, according to Bennett.

"The Officers' excessive use of force was unbearable," Bennett wrote. "I felt helpless as I lay there on the ground handcuffed facing the real-life threat of being killed. All I could think of was 'I'm going to die for no other reason than I am black and my skin color is somehow a threat.'"

Sound like two very different stories.

"In other news....the Seattle Seahawks announce that not only will they be standing tall during the National Anthem before Sunday's game, but that they will also be handing out American flags to all of the fans before the game."

Ya, this pretty much confirms that Bennett severely embellished the situation and because of that he can go fuck himself.

I think it's great the athlete's and other influential people are speaking up more about racism, but when you start to lie about what is happening that is taking it way over the line and only hurts the message you are trying to convey.
