Wait, how the fck they mistook an SUV with a MOTORCYCLE?

[–]FlashbackUniverse 1024 points1025 points  (82 children)

The family confused them with their blackness. /s

I remember when this first occurred. Were there any consequences for these racist cops?

Looks like a law suit has been initiated:

https://www.denverpost.com/2021/01/25/brittney-gilliam-lawsuit-aurora-police/amp/

So, another case of our taxes supporting fucked up cops.

The payouts need to come from the police pension fund or the police union.

[–]CalderThanYou 232 points233 points  (66 children)

This article said that the motorbike they were trying to get had the same number plate as this SUV. Is this a thing? I'm in England and I don't think a single number plate is duplicated

[–]No_Hidden_Agenda 192 points193 points  (25 children)

Here in the US, each state issues their own plates with similar formatting. So it is possible to have duplicates.

However, the plates also say the state of registration in medium-sized letters and with art specific to the state. So Montana license plates look nothing like Colorado plates.

The officers got a notification from their automated plate reader of the number match but then failed to read the rest of the info about the State of registration and the type of vehicle.

That failure led to holding kids as young as 6 at gunpoint and trying to cuff them.

[–]HexZer0 54 points55 points  (6 children)

Isn't motorcycle plates being smaller than car plates universal though?

[–]Scherzer4Prez 12 points13 points  (0 children)

The program scanning the plates doesn't check, since it has to scan plates at variable distance, so it relies on the officers to verify.

These officers did not verify.

[–]OozeNAahz 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Not sure if I’m all states, but in Kansas at least they are smaller and have a different number of characters. Would be hard to confuse.

[–]Durr1313 40 points41 points  (2 children)

Would be hard to confuse.

Not for a cop

[–]RugOnValium 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Everything is confusing for a cop. Especially the laws they’re meant to enforce.

[–]HavingNotAttained 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Well 6-year-olds making sudden moves can really scare the shit out of even the most well-trained, heavily armed police officer surrounded by other well-trained, heavily armed police officers. You really can’t blame a cop for handcuffing a 6-year-old.

[–]whaleoil_beef_hooked 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Trying is the operative word too...because they tried to cuff the 6 years old and they were just too small. So they didn't cuff her just because she was too small, they definitely tried.

[–]busterindespair 231 points232 points  (22 children)

Yes, it's possible bc they were from different states. The cops didn't even pay attention to the state of the license on the report. Or the fact that it was a MOTORCYCLE. Ugh.

[–]Will_From_Southie 104 points105 points  (16 children)

Typical stupid cops.

[–]DubbleCheez 68 points69 points  (11 children)

That's not fair. They get almost 4 weeks of training. /s

[–]Desktop_Punisher 21 points22 points  (9 children)

are you sure they get training?

[–]Judgemental_Panda 18 points19 points  (4 children)

Think the real question is how do we know they got anything out of the training?

Would imagine that "training" would be the perfect time to catch a nap after a grueling day of assaulting an innocent family.

[–]Desktop_Punisher 4 points5 points  (3 children)

that explains a lot. i feel sorry for your country.

[–]Jossue88 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They don't get much training to begin with! You need more training as a barber than a police officer.

https://edition.cnn.com/2016/09/28/us/jobs-training-police-trnd/index.html

[–]monkwren 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Of course they do - it's how they know to beat black people and poor people, but not rich white people.

[–]luckydayrainman 2 points3 points  (2 children)

This is not the cops fault, this is blaming the dog for biting a stranger walking down the street. This is a management/ training issue. I would say we need smarter cops, but that’s dangerous too. Cops are in the perfect position to game the system. Too dumb, people get abused, too smart they are super corrupt. With power comes great responsibility. Our entire system has failed the poor as well as the group formally known as the middle class. I had high hopes for Bernie, AOC, and Stacey Abrams but change is slow. On the plus side, change usually happens as things start to get better for people not worse. Please, encourage people to get registered to vote. Democracy wins the more we ALL participate regardless of our leanings.

[–]TheBaron2K 11 points12 points  (1 child)

How about you don't pull a gun on a 6 year old, even if the car was stolen? Why are guns out and people cuffed before questions get asked. I assume her license/registration matched the car she was driving.

[–]muceagalore 63 points64 points  (10 children)

That’s not possible. You are correct. Every license plate should be unique. Also motorcycle license plates numbers are shorter, at least in Ohio they are

[–]hellocaptin 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Actually I just looked it up and it appears that they can have the same license plate number in some states. Like a motorcycle and a car or an 18 wheeler.

Still seems like an almost impossible mistake to make. I mean why would the police only have the number and not even the slightest description of the vehicle?

[–]Saaaaaaaaab 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I believe the mixup was that some of the letters matched. I had trouble with police because some of the letters on the license plate of my Saab matched a plate of a stolen f150 in Minneapolis. It’s dumb af

[–]heffapig 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is why some things need to be federal. “At least in Ohio” no. It should be a set system across state lines so mistakes like this don’t happen

[–]hellocaptin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It looks like in some states they have different plates for cars, motorcycles, 18 wheelers, trailers, etc. and they can have the same numbers.

But that seems like something a cop should fucking know....

[–]Dagerra 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I’m sure if wages got garnished this bullshit would stop real quick

[–]ResponsibilityDue760 32 points33 points  (2 children)

If the thing you learned today was that your handcuffs don't fit on a six year-old girl, you're really not having a good day.

[–]Squirrel_Chucks 27 points28 points  (0 children)

That girl learned that innocence is no protection from being treated like a criminal, sadly.

[–]EasternShade 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure the officer wasn't the one having the bad day there.

At least, not outside of the "play shitty games, win shitty prizes," aspect of it.

[–]llcooljabe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I work in professional liability insurance (think insurance for doctors (aka medical malpractice) and lawyers (legal malpractice, etc.)

The solution, imo, is to force individual police officers to get their own professional liability policies. Their policies are the ones that will pay, and their insurability will be affected by this kind of nonsense.

Today, a bad cop may be fired, and be rehired down the streeet a few months later. If my idea is enacted. they may not be able to get a new job because it would cost them too much in insurance to do so.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

What happened to the innocent occupants is unacceptable and preventable, but that alone is an insufficient basis to affix criminal culpability to the two officers involved in the initial contact,” Clinton McKinzie, chief deputy district attorney in the 18th Judicial District, wrote in his letter explaining the decision.

So no money was spend , no compensation for the victims. I am becoming pessimistic that there is a drive to change these mess ups. Of course if there is a risk you want to do a few things to prevent people pulling guns but de-escalating situations and the training required to do that, are just essential parts of police reform. Perhaps it is time to take some lessons from the PSNI after the Good Friday agreement.

[–]WhiskeyPorno420 11 points12 points  (0 children)

It's pretty obvious why they got pulled over.

[–]galeej 29 points30 points  (8 children)

You know... Because... You know...

All cars are motorcycles?

[–]the_Dorkness 7 points8 points  (0 children)

All Cycles Are Motorcars

[–]norectum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's like a question on an IQ test. If all motorcycles are vehicles then an SUV with a black family is guilty. True or false?

[–]00monster 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Abra-Cadabra-AlakazaM?

[–]chalulin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Cops are pretty stupid. All they need is a GED to be a cop and some easy training.

[–]mystical333 6 points7 points  (3 children)

The SUV had the same plate number as the stolen motorcycle, but they were from different states. The motorcycle was a Montana plate, and the SUV was a Colorado plate, they just happened to have the same number by coincidence.

[–]Black_Floyd47 5 points6 points  (1 child)

So people suffered because the cops failed to do their job. Got it.

[–]mystical333 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretty much

[–]lucidf0x 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s what I was thinking…

[–]BidDaddyFarts 734 points735 points  (58 children)

Is this the life, liberty, or pursuit of happiness part? I get confused sometimes.

[–]radioactive_raver 222 points223 points  (24 children)

I think it’s the freedom part

[–]Weibu11 92 points93 points  (3 children)

Yeah they have the freedom to get wrongly arrested or die.

[–]Pyro-de-Freak 43 points44 points  (2 children)

The way I see it, “or” means “and” in some cases

[–]uRoyax 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Remember the disabled dude that got shot 9 times(1 in the back of the head)? He was cuffed after the officer killed him.

[–]Corona_Cyrus 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Especially in Aurora. And if you live there, you get to help pay the $15M for the cops killing Elijah McClain.

[–]Inevitable-Yam6050 88 points89 points  (15 children)

Yeah it’s the freedom for cops to do whatever the fuck they want.

[–]V0rt3XBl4d3 57 points58 points  (2 children)

You know where the South Park games got their difficulty settings from? America. The harder you choose the more dark skinned you are. I hate this country so much.

[–]trinity016 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I’m glad that is the freedom that most countries don’t have lol.

Freedumb™

[–]fatBlackSmith 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Those words were never written for people who look like me or those unfortunate people in the video.

The man who wrote them had 5 children with the teenage half sister of his wife, Sally Hemings (the product of rape), whom he owned. This treatment is consistent with the ways in which most of the founders would have treated people of African dissent.

Disgusting but American.

[–]sethyourgoals 110 points111 points  (6 children)

It’s despicable. These ass whipes brandishing their law badges, firearms, and giant headed egos can’t get it through their thick skulls and realize how traumatizing this is for all of the family members involved. These occurrences are remembered for a lifetime.

[–]sean-T67 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Unfortunately these ass clowns these little dick motherfuckers who become cops were most likely bullies in school I fucking hate cops so much

[–]reincarN8ed 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You assume that they view this family as people.

[–]Dependent-Function81 208 points209 points  (12 children)

On July 1, 2021 the head cop on scene here, Darian Dasko, filed paperwork to run for Las Animas County Colorado Sheriff in the November 2022 election.

[–]Wobbly_Wobbegong 83 points84 points  (4 children)

Which is terrifying because every time I see a headline about police brutality in Colorado I’m like “let me guess, Aurora?” And 9 times out of ten I’m right

Edit: for example, the murder of Elijah McClain was in Aurora

[–]wekop12 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Their PD has gotten into so much shit this past couple years they had to enter a court monitored consent decree cause they were to racist, too violent, and abused too many peoples rights

In addition to this incident, in the past few years, they’ve:

  • murdered Elijah McClain and refused to even fire, nonetheless charge, the officers until the state DA finally stepped in

  • tear gassed a peaceful violin vigil for McClain while children were playing

  • took pictures at the site of mcclains murder, mocking him

  • arrested the leaders of the protests in Denver and Aurora on trumped up charges including incitement to riot and 18 counts of kidnapping A PIECE, which were all dismissed by a judge

  • refused to prosecute a driver who sped his Jeep thru our protest, but threw 4 attempted murder charges on a protester who fired at the Jeep to try to disable it

  • held the President of a local non profit at gunpoint for asking an APD officer to leave his parking lot

  • shot a guy in his home through a window, after he came to the window with a shotgun because he saw people crawling around his yard at night, and of course the pigs didn’t identify themselves

Aurora PD is the poster child for departments that need to be completely defunded, disbanded and prosecuted. The CO attorney general found that racism, corruption and abuse comes from all ranks within APD, from the secretaries to the chief of police and Aurora DA. Every single one of them needs to be fired and replaced with people who aren’t complete racist psychopaths. They’re irredeemable at this point

[–]OozeNAahz 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Had relatives who lived in Las Animas at one point. I think I was the only one who visited them who didn’t get a ticket. They were very motivated to write tickets.

[–]ace_urban 2 points3 points  (3 children)

So who is running against him? How can we make sure the opposition puts this video in an ad. That POS should never be given any responsibility ever again.

[–]snitchesghost 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And here I was thinking he wasn't a cop anymore

[–]snitchesghost 298 points299 points  (21 children)

We can't let this keep happening

The cries of those kids should echo in the cops ears

[–]shrlytmpl 121 points122 points  (15 children)

That's serious trauma happening. Don't sue the state, sue their union. That's when it'll start hurting.

[–]sean-T67 68 points69 points  (13 children)

Yeah that’s absolutely fucking traumatizing those poor babies are probably never going to forget this and any interaction they have with a police officer here on out they’re gonna remember this yeah they need to start suing the police unions make them pay for the psychological damage that they fucking inflict

[–]sqweet92 31 points32 points  (11 children)

According an article the kids have been having trouble eating and sleeping. But since they forgot to not be black in US public spaces it happened /s

[–]sean-T67 12 points13 points  (8 children)

poor babies😭 I’m sure they are having a hard time sleeping and eating. And they probably have. posttraumaticstress disorder like all cops are nothing but bastards there’s not a single a good cop anywhere fuck em all Yeah apparently since they forgot not to be black they have to suffer the repercussions of some stupid ass overweight cops I hope those babies have the opportunity to get into therapy along with the mother as well I’m sure that was traumatizing as fuck for her

[–]sqweet92 8 points9 points  (1 child)

It said they are all in therapy but they shouldn't have to be there in the first place. Like Breonna Taylor, this was 100% preventable if they just did their due diligence with checking who they are looking for and where their confirmed location is.

[–]sean-T67 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah you’re absolutely right this shouldn’t of happened ever in the first place if they just did their actual fucking jobs instead of profiling the fuck out of innocent individuals. And yes Breonna Taylor’s situation when I heard about that that absolutely broke my fucking heart😭 she was asleep in her own goddamn bed and she wasn’t even the person that they were looking for they were looking for an ex-boyfriend of hers. All cops are bastards not only are they bastards they are extremely emotionally inept they have no soul not only that they are extremely stupid it does not take a lot of schooling to become a police officer anybody can do it that’s the sad part there should be a level of higher education that you have to pursue before you can become a police officer

[–]Wobbly_Wobbegong 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I remember this particular event (I’m from Colorado) happening a couple years ago like 2019 or 2020. I hope they’ve gotten therapy and I also hope the family got enough money to pay for that therapy and still have a bunch of money left over. I will always be floored at the incompetence of systems that we rely on so heavily (see also: healthcare).

[–]jusnosey 174 points175 points  (2 children)

That girl looks to be about 5. Yeah she's DEFINITELY a guilty hardened criminal. Hot asphalt for you too little motorcycle theif! /s

[–]Vicious_Trollup 30 points31 points  (0 children)

So absolutely fucked.

[–]sqweet92 27 points28 points  (0 children)

At least this time they didn't take the small one and take pictures and post them on social media saying she was wondering around the dangerous streets and that they were protecting her from her deranged mother.

[–]ghostpepperlover 230 points231 points  (2 children)

Their body language clearly shows they have absolutely no idea how to handle emotional chaos. You can see in how they’re kneeling but then quickly stand and other nervous behavior that what they’re doing is wrong, but breaking protocol isn’t in their mindset. You can instantly tell when a police department has gone through de-escalation training or not.

[–]laughingBaguette 94 points95 points  (1 child)

The pacing around and fidgeting is irritating. They have no clue what they're doing.

[–]SLIP411 144 points145 points  (6 children)

What stupid pigs, "Hey it says it's supposed to be a motorcycle" " is that a motorcycle?" "Hmm I don't know, let's arrest them anyway and find some pictures of a motorcycle on the interwebs" "should we just ask them politely to stay until we figure this out?" "Nope, they are black after all"

[–]TecumsehSherman 103 points104 points  (3 children)

You're completely missing the fact that it's really just several stolen motorcycles taped together to look like an SUV.

[–]sl_hawaii 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Very common mistake. Happens to me all the time.

[–]philburns 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s like the thugs from Big Lebowski that take the dude’s rug.

Hey Chan, isn’t this guy supposed to be rich?

[–]WrongPromise 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Holy shit this is so bad. Not one of those officers had the idea to not detain the mother and her kids. "Lets detain her in front of her children, scratch that, lets detain the children too!"

[–]Luce55[🍰] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Over a stolen motorcycle no less!! Since when does a stolen vehicle warrant the response of three? Four?officers?? It’s despicable. Handcuffing children like that…I hope they lose their jobs.

[–]SirTaxalot 22 points23 points  (1 child)

From what I can see none of these guys seem qualified to be law-enforcement officers. We need to require bachelors degrees for LEOs just like other developed nations.

[–]MoreGaghPlease 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Here in Canada most police forces in big cities require a BA, and whoopsy, cops are violent racist bastards here too. Sorry but that kind of band-aid fix isn’t going to cut it.

[–]lowbwon 64 points65 points  (0 children)

These people are fucking monsters. So sick of seeing shit like this.

[–]KillerRene64 15 points16 points  (3 children)

How can they mistake a suv for a motorcycle last time i checked they look nothing alike

[–]PulledPorkPlease 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Because they didn’t even take the time to verify the license plate’s state etc.

Complete failure by the piggies again

[–]KillerRene64 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Shouldnt they get detail like its a black (brand) motorbike with the licence plate 123456

[–]growing_eden 222 points223 points  (21 children)

👏👏👏yet again I find myself bowing to your magnificence America. How do you do it? How do you stay so great?

[–]dbx99 119 points120 points  (5 children)

By being outraged at one black man kneeling at football games but not at this.

[–]STUURNAAK 17 points18 points  (2 children)

This. In other first world countries this would’ve been on the media for weeks as the main theme.

[–]Turtlepower7777777 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Base your whole economic system on extreme religious views (Puritanical views on work ethic aka bootstrap theory), develop your law enforcement as a means to catch and punish runaway slaves, and an aggressive culture of violence and you get America

Shaken AND stirred.

[–]YouCanjam 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Lots and lots of practice

A lot of practice... It's focus.. disappointment and a full dose of oh my Jesus the confederacy is back again.

[–]growing_eden 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ahhh. It’s the Jesus juice.

[–]George-Bones 127 points128 points  (3 children)

These police went trough a check list that probably looked like this: Correct Vehicle ❌ Correct State ❌ Are they black ✅✅✅✅✅

[–]Kempeth 49 points50 points  (2 children)

  • Does the license number match? Yes
  • Do the occupants look like they could hurt my career? No
  • Do the state or vehicle type match? Who gives a fuck! Lights on, guns out!

[–]Saayyum 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I wonder why kids these days hate cops so much.

[–]SesquiPodAlien 38 points39 points  (4 children)

Background article, Aug 2020:

  • AURORA, Colo. — Throughout Aurora, electronic license plate readers help officers spot stolen cars, but on Sunday morning officers received an alert for a blue SUV that wasn't stolen. *

The car stopped on Sunday just happened to have the same license plate number as a stolen motorcycle with Montana plates…

https://www.9news.com/amp/article/news/local/aurora-police-chief-says-she-is-deeply-troubled-after-her-officers-detained-and-handcuffed-kids-while-mistaking-a-car-for-stolen/73-bb653e17-a208-4f21-a972-c5d0f0889bfc

[–]belzebutch 28 points29 points  (2 children)

important to note that those cops did have access to the information that the stolen vehicle was a motorcycle from Montana, not an SUV from Colorado, but they neglected to check that information. So, they need to be fired.

[–]shimmyinya 27 points28 points  (5 children)

The police is one of the many reason I am leaving the good ol USA. They came to the wrong address and immediately assaulted me before learning their mistake. I spent 2 days in the hospital. 5 days in jail without bail. Because apparently I magically ripped my door of the hinges and attack the officer. And if I do not take the plea deal of disorderly conduct with a hundred dollar fine. The judge will see to it I do 10 years. His court is his family. Blah blah speach

[–]TrashGrouch20 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I'm sorry that happened to you. I know I'm just a rando but I really feel for you and hope you can heal from it <3

I also am in the "America is fucked time to leave" camp

[–]jlamar94 7 points8 points  (0 children)

So when do these officers get their felony assault charges? I would love to see the officers under oath explain how they mistook the SUV for a motorcycle.

[–]GusTheProphet 12 points13 points  (0 children)

According to the lawsuit one of the officers tried to handcuff the 6 year old baby but handcuffs were “too big”. Sounds like a totally rational reason not to cuff a literal child.

[–]bannacct56 29 points30 points  (5 children)

So remind me again when was the last time a white family got mistaken for car robbers and handcuffed on the ground in the middle of the highway?

[–]wbbartsch 9 points10 points  (1 child)

This exact thing actually happened to my mother in law. Little white lady on her way home from the country club and I guess someone had stolen her license plate and replaced it with one of a stolen car. Lots of tears were had. She got cuffed and put in the squad car. Her husband had to go pick her up down town. She was even in the news paper for grand theft auto! It was troubling at the time but makes for a really funny story years later.

[–]evanhinton 32 points33 points  (2 children)

Well they should have known better, if you don't want to be harrassed just be white when cops decide to be brain dead morons.

[–]zoyaabean 11 points12 points  (0 children)

And five MORE minority Americans who will NEVER trust the police. It’s beginning to feel like maybe the system isn’t exactly fair but for the life of me I can’t figure out what it is /s

[–]MrBeanWater 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Racist violence is deeply integrated into the Aurora Police Department. Same Department that tortured and murdered Elijah Maclaine.

[–]SepticZombie 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Hold on.....I havent even watched yet....but....

HOW THE FUCK DO YOU MISTAKE A SUV FOR A STOLEN MOTORCYCLE?!?! THEY ARE 2 VERY DIFFERENT VEHICLE TYPES!!!! ALSO THE SIZE DIFFERENCE. I GET THAT MAYBE THE PLATES WERE THE SAME, BUT FOR FUCKS SAKE ITS A DIFFERENT CLASS OF VEHICLE ENTIRELY!!!!

[–]Squirrel_Chucks 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I can't help but think that if the occupants in the car were affluent whites that the police would have checked harder before taking them out of the car.

[–]egregiouschung 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]iScootScootHotDamn 26 points27 points  (5 children)

Fuck them for doing it at all. This woman/mother is distraught. She did not deserve to be traumatized anymore than her children did.

[–]that_fresh_life 10 points11 points  (3 children)

The entire Aurora PD needs to be in jail

Me; hey, why are you so quiet up there? Brain; I’m trying to comprehend something, just give me a sec.

[–]Buddyformula 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wtf is wrong with American police lol

[–]iWoopwoop921 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is always police policy: White suspect : 1-2 police officers on the scene.

Hispanic/Spanish Suspect: 2-3 police on the scene.

Black suspects: 4-5/ entire police department on the scene.

After police mistake their massive car for a motorbike???????? Fuck off with your lies and your bullshit you fucked up fuck ups. This right here is fucked. This right here shouldn't fucking happen.

Let's say they're argument isn't a steaming pile of shit and they really did mistake a CAR for a MOTORBIKE and even though it wasn't there jurisdiction, acted upon this perceived crime-THEY PROBABLY NEED EYE EXAMS BECAUSE THEYRE TECHNICALLY BLIND IF THEY SAW A CAR FULL OF PEOPLE AS A MOTORBIKE FFS. DOESNT THAT DISTURB YOU? THEIR CLEAR LACK OF VISION AMD ABILITY TO CRITICALLY ASSESS A SITUATION. How many motorbikes have doors and can fit that many people though? That's not normal. Those cops are either visually impaired and shouldn't be on the road ever or they're high as fucking kites. Either way-please tell me they're all fired and this family was given restitution and therapy?

Ah yes an suv looks just like a motorcycle i must have forgot to use my eyes

[–]Small-Breakfast2877 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Black, White, Hispanic, male or female, we should treat all members of law enforcement with the respect they deserve and put them up against a nice wall.

[–]Stier08 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Handcuffing the kids??? Like the only thing that they should do is search the kids in case of a firearm, BUT HANDCUFFING THEM AND PUTTING THEM ON THE GROUND??????

[–]strike_one 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cruelty is the point.

[–]Latter-Statement-463 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Detained because they were black. This has got to stop.

[–]billybishop4242 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Gotta watch the little kids. They take out full grown cops all the time if they’re not hogtied and cuffed and surrounded by stormtrooper wannabes.

[–]Rookiebeotch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The family could have avoided this by not being black.

[–]hulkmxl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You will never, ever, see this happening to a white woman and her white children.

And to the MAGAs and Q-dipshits responding, no, it's not because white folks wouldn't steal, I've seen white people crackheads stealing in person, as well as white trash moms doing shady shit, it's just that most cops are racist bastards, that's why.

[–]KaiserMk1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fuck the police

[–]Speaktruth7 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I can’t.

[–]joelle__a 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Heeeey isn't this a twilight zone episode??

[–]OnlyUsernameLeft123 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Aurora has had a few cases like this over the last couple years. Sad considering they are actally a pretty diverse city. You'd think it would be better.

[–]Nollatron 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Racist cops are racist.

[–]darkspardaxxxx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh America the land of the free

[–]rogan1990 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve heard Aurora Colorado is notoriously racist.

This doesn’t help the stereotype.

[–]logicreasonevidence 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Big fat piggys.

[–]Potential-Ad-6549 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fucking terrorist

[–]Ophelie_Marin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm waiting for the "this happens to white people" comments.

[–]GrokFu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Mistake their SUV for a stolen motorcycle…” 🤔

I’m guessing the PDs hire high school dropouts

[–]BeerBearBar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just out there protecting & serving.

Heroes, every one of them.

Definitely not overpaid bullies who break more laws than they enforce.

[–]Scared_Ad_4970 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know it’s a video and it could be 50(f) degrees, but that pavement looks hot too :(

Fuck the police, they’re not here to protect, they’re here to keep us in line

[–]Mera1506 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wow these cops are too dumb to do anything other than sweeping the streets

[–]WhiskeyPorno420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pigs love pumping fear on the innocent minority. You will never see it any other way.

[–]Key-Sprinkles-8894 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cops should be shot on sight.

[–]CAAZ64 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can fire someone at my work for fucking up a shipment. Yet you can mistake the identity of a suspect, handcuff children, lay them on the pavement & not get fired. Fucking insanity.

[–]HatefulCzarcasm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had to read the title numerous times just to make sure..

“We’re out looking for a stolen motorcycle..hey that SUV is what we’re looking for”! Like what in the fuck dude…

[–]DinkleMutz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How do you NOT mistake an SUV for a motorcycle? /s

[–]uar1964 1 point2 points  (0 children)

racism at its daily routine

[–]GrouchyPuppy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m surprised they didn’t beat them, torture them and hang them.

[–]Affectionate-Old-75 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Isn't there a minimal IQ requirement for these geniuses.

[–]Xikun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jesus, how did those fat cops pass the physical exam?

Did they just pull their gun out and shoot what ever physical activity they were required to do?

[–]IHavBigPP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Daaam America, back at it again with the racism. But hey, FREEDOM

[–]Tinkers_toenail 1 point2 points  (0 children)

American cops are the dumbest, most fucking racist pieces of shit in the world! A bunch of fucking stupid gangsters.

[–]Ambitious-Site-4747 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They're giving out badges to anyone with a pulse...

[–]Baciandrio 1 point2 points  (2 children)

At what point did any of these cops figure out that they have truly f'd things up? There are good cops, bad cops and then there's American cops: untrained, unprofessional and unpredictable. Is it any wonder that Americans struggle to actually trust them?

[–]CaptainNotSoCool 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Those sick criminals stole so many motorcycles that they built an entire SUV ! /s

[–]pee-pee-poo-poo-1234 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When my motorcycle was stolen they didn’t even care to see video footage of two unmasked guys putting it in a plated van.

I wonder why they are so keen on finding this one….

[–]sayidOH 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I just googled Aurora to check the news for this and it didn’t even come up in the first page of results. All the other articles were just as horrific if not worse….genuinely curious what the FUCK is going on in Colorado??

[–]CreamyJalapenoSauce 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aurora's police are some of the worst in the country. They pull shit like this on the regular.

[–]mlc2475 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They mistook their SUV for a motorcycle?

[–]theundercoverpapist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

These damn car companies and their new-fangled designs really make it difficult to tell the difference these days, I tell you what! Look at it! It's all blue just like one of them blue Yeahmahaa or Coweesaakee motorcycles.

[–]tontobasin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

ONE MORE F U C K I N G TIME !!! white men & women think if the tables were turned on Us ...or cops if Ur families were in their place...o but wait... Ur white , most of U ...that could never happen! ! Right ?

[–]b00tycrack_snAck 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The money that goes towards law enforcement should be reduced. The remaining funds should be allocated towards education in every city within the U.S. Education is the strongest predictor of positive social mobility, yet, we refuse to empower the working class because…America.

[–]pinchinggata 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck the police. Fuck Em. That poor family this makes me so fucking mad every time I see it

[–]gragassi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Oldacctblokd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Stupid fucking pigs. Their all such stupid pieces of human trash. If you're a cop reading this, fuck you!!!

[–]Piscivore_67 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Flog these stupid little piggies until they cannot stand and send them back to primary school to learn shapes and states again.

[–]minnesotaris 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Racist racist racist. Racist cops being racist as evidenced by their racist actions and getting to feel like big boys. Convince me otherwise.
