Two Kansas police officers became the latest target of anti-police activists after a 36 second video was posted to social media showing the officers restraining a suspect.
To the anti-police crowd, the video shows police abuse. You can hear bystander John Sherman on the video, saying police are going to “f***ing kill” the suspect.
Warning explicit language:
Of course, 36 seconds doesn’t show what really happened but the video quickly went viral.
Lenexa police released the full footage of the incident from officers’ body cameras and a patrol car dashcam – and that shows a very different story.
The suspect, now identified as 30-year-old John Harrison, was pulled over for not wearing a seatbelt. Harrison was driving on a suspended license and had multiple warrants out for his arrest.
As the officers go to cuff him, Harrison attacks the officers in a desperate attempt to flee before being taken to the ground and restrained.
Another case of body and dash camera footage showing officers doing an outstanding job in a volatile situation.
As for Harrison? He’s sitting in jail on his multitude of warrants and facing additional charges for driving on a suspended license and assault on a police officer.
