In other circumstances, police will illegally seize or delete evidence recorded by citizens, notwithstanding laws that make it a crime to destroy evidence of a crime being committed, irrespective of whether the crime is committed by civilians or by the police.
Types of misconduct include coerced false confession, intimidation, false arrest, false imprisonment, falsification of evidence, spoliation of evidence, police perjury, witness tampering, police brutality, police corruption, racial profiling, unwarranted surveillance, unwarranted searches, and unwarranted seizure of property.
With the proliferation of mobile devices capable of recording alleged misconduct, police misconduct and abuse is now receiving publicity on social media and on websites including You Tube.
In response, police often try to intimidate citizens to prevent them from using cameras.
And the report may be used by the perpetrator against the victim.
Perhaps the most common intimidating car is the police cruiser.
Seeing a police car, such as the new Dodge Charger Police Interceptor coming up in your rear view mirror will make most drivers tense up and move over and behave…at least until it’s out of view.
Today automobiles are commonplace, although there still remains a small set of vehicles that intimidate the masses.
Intimidating cars can range from the extremely fast and exotic, to bullet proof military grade beasts and even to massive lifted trucks that that look like they would love to crush your car like Bigfoot or Grave Digger.
