Arsehole TO cop Eduardo Miranda figures his insulting chit aresome

Police sergeant Eduardo Miranda is charged with misconduct for allegedly using excessive force during a midday downtown arrest. The January 24th incident was captured on video, showing the cop Taser and stomp on a man mid-arrest. Miranda can be heard instructing officers to stop a citizen, Waseem Khan, from video-recording the arrest. “Get that guy out of my face” Miranda says, gesturing at Khan, who is recording the incident on his phone from approximately 6 metres (20 feet) away.

Other officers on scene then proceed to tell Khan he must move away, one of them urging him to let police “do what they need to.”
When Khan insists he has the right to record, two officers warn him that they are going to seize his phone as evidence, something they positively do not have the authority to do. Citizens have every right to record police performing their duties if they are not obstructing the officers.

“I’m not obstructing your arrest. I’m not involved in the investigation,” Khan can be heard saying in the video. Miranda faces one count of excessive force against the man under arrest and one count of discreditable conduct.
