Scottsdale Police Watch as Pro-Police Protesters Bully Counter Protesters & Journalist (video)

Pro police protesters used physical size, name-calling, and physical intimidation to stop counter protesters and journalists, while Scottsdale police watched.

Pro-police protesters used physical threats, name-calling, and bullying to stop counter protesters and journalists, while Scottsdale police watched. Here a very large, very intimidating pro-police bully calls a young woman “puke” and “stupid”. When he pushes up against her, she jokingly asks if he wants to get closer, to which he says “no” because “you stink.”

Phoenix videographer Dennis Gilman likes to be where the action is– with his video camera.

This past Saturday, January 17, Gilman and his camera were in Scottsdale for a rally in support of Scottsdale police, who “have a worse record than Ferguson when it comes to arresting minorities. They are also pretty famous for killing unarmed people. Besides the damage it has done to many families, it has cost Scottsdale tax payers plenty,” according to Gilman.

For the most part, Scottsdale police stood idly by as pro-police protesters used physical threats, name-calling, and bullying in an attempt to shut down counter protesters and stop Gilman from filming. Video after the jump.

    It was not to long ago that a hispanic police officer sued the scottsdale police for discrimination and at the trial played radio calls he had taped where police were following african-americans who had driven into north scottsdale N-word free zone. Newtimes reported on this some years ago.

  2. Maybe it’s time to present this to the Scottsdale City Council… when’s the next council meeting, I wonder?
