Cops Tackle, Arrest Man for Giving Finger, Saying F the Police

PINAC – by Ben Keller

Video posted by YouTuber James Freeman August 9 shows South Dakota cops tackling and then arresting a man for giving cops the finger and saying f–k the police.

And it was all caught on video. 

If it hadn’t been for a fan of Freeman’s pulling up on the scene, approaching, conversing with Freeman and eventually getting arrested for talking smack to the police, it would have been a rather boring video.

It all began after Mark Burgess stopped by to say hello to Freeman who was live streaming police officers deal with the aftermath of a car wreck at an intersection in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Burgess apparently wanted to show his appreciation for the First Amendment activist, who runs the YouTube channel James Freeman News.

“I appreciate James Freeman, dude,” Burgess says into Freeman’s camera.

“Peace.”

Burgess then apparently gives credit to another YouTuber.

“Aaron Brandt’s the one who got me to be ‘f-k the cops,'” he tells Freeman before turning his attention to the officers on the scene.

To be fair, the officers aren’t really doing anything out of line or extraordinary before Burgess begins giving them the bird.

“F-k this one, f-k that one, f-k ’em,” Burgess tells Freeman.

“F-k ’em. F-k you.”

“Uh, oh…,” Freeman replies.

“Yeah, that’s good shit. He (sic) ain’t gonna do shit. He knows he’s not gonna do shit.”

“He’s gonna stand there and take it,” Burgess says, assumingly.

As video rolls, Freeman narrates that there was only one cop on the scene, but that another police car just rolled up.

That’s when one Sioux Falls police officer approaches Burgess.

“Don’t talk to me,” Burgess tells the officer.

“You know I won’t give you the time of day,” he adds.

“What’s going on today?” the officer asks.

“You can back the f-k away,” Burgess replies.

“OK,” the officer says before grabbing for Burgess’ arms.

“What? Leave him alone. Guys, leave him alone,” Freeman tells the officer.

“Guys, what are you doing to him?”

“He’s causing a disorderly—”

“No, he’s not,” Freeman says before the officers take off sprinting and tackle Burgess to the ground.

“Guys, he’s standing on a public sidewalk, talking. What is wrong with you?” Freeman says.

“It’s free speech on a public sidewalk!” Freeman says before turning to the crowd and explaining the man was being arrested for speaking his mind.

“No, there’s more to it than that, sir,” a man, exiting a restaurant with his family, says.

“What more is there to it? They’re arresting him for speaking his mind.”

The man thanks James for recording as he’s being arrested and says police know who he is.

“We have no idea who you are, sir.”

“So, you’re arresting him for saying f–k the police?” Freeman asks the officers.

“We’re arresting him for trying to resist when we were trying to investigate,” one of them replies.

Freeman points out it wasn’t necessary for the officers to grab Burgess in order to investigate.

“You don’t need to touch to investigate. What were you investigating?”

“What if I were to grab you while I were investigating you? That would be wrong,” Freeman points out.

Eventually, after a back and forth conversation between officers at the scene, the video ends.

Burgess was arrested on three misdemeanors including disorderly conduct, obstructing a police officer and resisting arrest.

He has since been released from jail.

The full, unedited video is included below.

    I HAVENT WATCHED THE VIDEO, HOWEVER; IF YOUR GONNA DO SHIT THAT THEY DRAG YOUR ASS TO JAIL FOR…. MAKE IT GOOD!!
    JUST SCREAMING, “F#K THE POLICE” AINT GONNA HELP ANYTHING. IF YOU WANT TO DO REAL DAMAGE, TEACH THE ASSHOLES THE BILL OF RIGHTS WHILE NO ONE IS UNDER DURESS. THEN THEY CAN CONSIDER THEMSELVES, NOT ONLY “SCHOOLED”, BUT WARNED AS WELL……..
    EMOTIONALLY SCREAMING OUT YOUR BLAH BLAH “AMENDMENT RIGHTS” AS YOUR BEING DRAGGED AWAY BY A HUMAN GORILLA WILL SOLVE NOTHING………………………..BY THE WAY, LEARN HOW TO “LOOK DOWN YOUR NOSE” AT THESE PEOPLE.ITS A LOT LESS COSTLY….. BESIDES… YOU SHOW THE TEACHING OF YOUR PARENTS WHEN YOU YELL, “FU#K YOU” IN A PUBLIC PLACE.
    WERE YOU RAISED IN A BARN?

  3. I suspect that if you want to see how police have gone from protectors to tyrants this video is a good example. There was no victim of anything that the arrested man did, and he was within his right to observe and comment on events he was witnessing. Oh, wait… that’s only true in a free country. In a police state, you have to surrender to whatever the cops say, or they will arrest you for resisting.

    It is unfortunate that in 2019 the biggest law breakers are government employees. And we need government, why?
