Michael Bennett - False Arrest?


Recommended Posts

No thread on his story or the video yet? Picking up huge steam on twitter and the networks. Maybe more to the story, but right now it appears Bennett was falsely arrested.

Bennett talked about the issue on his Instagram.

TMZ has video of the incident with Bennett they released within the last hour...

Should be interesting how people view this considering he is an anthem protester and the outrage such acts have caused in the NFL. Wonder if people look at football protesting police treatment the same way now. This will shine a new light on it, for sure.

Wonder how Goodell will look at this as well, does he call it a personal conduct policy issue? Clearly it shouldnt be as of now, but you can never be so sure with the NFL.

Some of the posts in this thread are disgusting. The guy even said he was afraid for his life and they pulled a gun on him. 

Where exactly do you come from?  Because that aint even close to arrested.   Also I am going to side with the Vegas cops at 2am after hearing gun shots after a huge fight 100 times out of 10

I mean...we're in the situation we are politically for a reason. And that's as far as I'll go since this is the Shark Pool...but these people are all around us.

I posted this in another thread but I got a good taste of how people will view this and it was kind of depressing.

I found out the story reading my twitter timeline when Rapoport and an Eagles beat writer tweeted it. I checked the responses and it was overwhelmingly filled with anti-Bennett tweets. Lots of race baiter comments, just a lot of vile towards Bennett.

Not sure if it makes me more sad, angry or disgusted.

He wasnt arrested Mavis

Where I come from when they put cuffs on you and put you in the back of a squad car to take away your freedom for even a second...you were arrested.

But no he wasnt "booked," if thats what you are saying. 

But will "falsely apprehended and detained against his will" work better? I mean it has a question mark after it. 

Surprised at the takeaway of this discussion for some.

Maybe the police had heard this young man's postgame interview with a reporter and handcuffed him for their own safety until he calmed down

 

Don't point (at us) and say we didn't do what we needed to do, OK? Don't do that, OK? Get out of my face now. Don't tell me I didn't do my job, mother------. Get the (expletive) out of my face. Like I said, get out of my face.

"Don't play with me! I just put my heart on the (expletive) field! Don't play with me. Get the ---- out of my face! Try me again and see what happens. I ain't one of these mother------ . Don't tell me what I didn't do, mother------.

"We lost the game! That's the NFL, you non-playing mother------! What you do with your life? What you do with your lifetime mother------? What injury you play through? What adversity you went through?"

Amazing how you are so quick to believe what you wanna hear, but so quick to deny what you dont. 

I shared the story, you wanted to troll the headline. Stay excellent.

He is a violent dude??? 

Also, people are never plucked off the street because they are black? Are you saying profiling isnt a thing?

Yes he is a violent dude and just like I said up thread, at 2am in vegas after hearing gunshots I am going to side with the vegas cops 100 times out of 100.   But please continue on with your faux outrage over cops.  I am still laughing at the "falsely apprehended and detained against his will" post

Doesn't this always seem to be the case when stuff like this goes down?  "Police stated that the arresting officer did not have his body camera on him during the time of Bennett's detainment."

Like when that kid was killed in the middle of the freeway in Chicago by CPD, and for some reason there was no audio of the incident from any of the cops' body cameras that were on the scene?  Just always seems to me to be a strange, strange coincidence.

Bennett should be suspended for making false statements in order perpetuate his false narrative.

Wait, the cops said that they didn't do anything wrong?  Oh, well that clears it up then.

We can see in the video that there is no gun in the back of Bennett's head and there is no excessive force being used.

That makes it 0-2 on Bennett's "truth meter".

Add that to the fact that Bennett never even filed a complaint with the police department, and it's pretty clear what Bennett is doing here.

Go to 12:41 of the video the LV PD posted and you can absolutely see something pointed at the back of his head, and they did not deny that the officer threatened to blow his head off.  As always, the truth will come out soon, but it's foolish to be so certain of either side right now unless you already have your own prejudices in place.

Sort of curious--what is that that the cop is holding by the head of the guy on the ground?  A box of Tic Tacs?

Looks like a taser to me.

If it's a gun, Bennett only lied about why he was detained, the methods used to detain him, and likely, what was said during the encounter(liberal media source TMZ released the video and "I'll blow your head off!" is noticeably absent from that video).

You keep calling him a "violent dude." What's your basis for that?

Do people actually realize how ignorant they sound and are when they constantly disregard any website with facts that don't fit their narrative or talking points as "biased?"

You just validated my question.  Thanks.
