They caught him with a gun, or so they say.
(Reuters) – A man who filmed a New York City police officer use a choke hold on a suspect who later died has been arrested on weapons charges, law enforcement officials said on Sunday.Probably just a giant coincidence he was 'observed' doing this.
Ramsey Orta, 22, and a 17-year-old female were spotted on Saturday outside a known drug location on Staten Island by narcotics officers who saw Orta put a handgun in his companion’s waistband, the New York Police Department said.
Orta, who has a previous criminal conviction, faces two charges of criminal possession of a weapon.
It's not like cops would, you know, stalk him or anything.
At some point during his arrest, Orta told officers, “You’re just mad because I filmed your boy,” an NYPD spokeswoman said.I, of course, feel this is entirely what it is about. 100%. Fully.
It's clearly retaliation.
Cops absolutely HATE cameras because cops absolutely intend to do what they want and they'll get away with it easier if it's not recorded somewhere.
They murdered Eric Garner.
The finding increases the likelihood that the case will be presented to a grand jury to determine whether Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who placed Garner in the chokehold, or any other officers involved in the confrontation will face criminal charges. Pantaleo's attorney, Stuart London, declined to comment.It's on video. It's viral.
Cops aren't supposed to face consequences so.... now it's time to get revenge on the messenger.
I hope Mr. Orta gets out of jail in one piece.
