A Police Officer’s Body Cam captured his severe over reaction on film.
On September 4, 2013, University of Central Florida (UCF) college student Victoria King was pulled over by UCFPD Officer Timothy Isaacs for a minor traffic offense – a bad tail light.
The officer became obsessed and incensed by Ms. King being reluctant to roll down her window “all the way” to receive her bad tail light ticket.
The officer then escalated the traffic stop to violence, breaking out the car window, and charging Ms. King with two felonies and a misdemeanor.
The two felonies have been abandoned by the state attorney.
All the officer had to do was hand the woman her ticket and go on about his revenue collecting. Instead he opted for a power trip.
Instead of simply citing her, he began to require the woman to obey every verbal command he gave, regardless of having a legitimate function to his issuance of the citation.
Orlando criminal defense attorney John Guidry (www.jgcrimlaw.com), sums up the officers command:
“The officer’s command to roll down the window ‘all the way’ does not sound like much of an imposition. But it is an unlawful command, and as such, it is not much different than the officer telling Ms. King to stand on her head. Stand on her head? What possible connection does that have with writing a citation for a broken tail light? Well, it has none, as does the officer’s claim that a partially rolled down window is somehow a safety concern. It is not. The officer’s order was arbitrary, is not for the safety of the officer, and, in fact, serves no purpose whatsoever.
“If Ms. King is accused of ‘resisting an officer’ for her failure to roll down her window fully, Florida Statute 843.02 requires that the officer be engaged in the legal execution of any legal duty. It would appear, then, that before Ms. King is required to obey the order of the officer, the order must be legal from the beginning. Clearly, this officer’s order was illegal, and as such, Ms. King’s charges should be dismissed.”
Yeah, I knew before even watching the video that this would be a black woman getting harrassed.
She spoke calmly the entire time. She showed him her hands. She asked “why do I need to roll the window all the way down?” repeatedly, in calm, reasonable tones. He kept saying “for my safety” and when she asked him to explain that, he just repeated it. She was never a threat in any way.
She mentions her own safety, in talking about why she refused to roll the window all the way down. When he suddenly demanded she step out of the car for no apparent reason, it’s no wonder she didn’t feel safe. Cops have harrassed, assaulted, and raped women alone at traffic stops; many women feel the need to be cautious, because they get blamed for not knowing better if something happens to them. Or just flat out disbelieved.
She repeatedly asks him “What is the law that says I have to roll the window down?” and he says “the law is that you’re detained and so you have to roll it down.” Um. You’re detained because you wouldn’t roll the window down. Therefore you have to roll the window down because you’re detained. WHAT.
We also hear the officer say that she was advising she was HAVING A MISCARRIAGE and needed to get to the health clinic. Did you get that? He is AWARE THAT SHE IS HAVING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY and is still literally dragging her out of the car, onto the ground, and handcuffing her for no reason.
The only thing she was guilty of (besides the broken tail light) was driving while black.
