Fake news is everywhere, even in rural Boone County, Missouri. William Clark, a columnist for the Columbia Tribune in Columbia, Missouri, wrote about his experience being pulled over for a traffic violation by two Boone County Sheriff’s deputies.
Several readers here are ex-cops and you understand the kind of guy Bill Clark is. These people are a dime a dozen and bitch about the cops constantly. From dashcam video/audio you can see that deputies never mistreated Clark, never insulted Clark, and acted with complete professionalism. The pulled him over for a minor traffic violation, explained the situation, and issued a citation. Each step of the way, the contacting officer was courteous and at no time did she or her partner act in an aggressive manner
Clark would have none of it, he decided to get even with the cops and write the above article about them and their unprofessional and threatening demeanor. Too bad for him that the officers had video and audio of the stop, it showed a completely different story, though his published explanation of events differed from dashcam video. Clark explained that he was lucky he wasn’t shot by these arrogant deputies.
Here’s the dashcam video:
I’d have treated him the same whether he had a bumper full of Trump stickers, just like these officers did. From the video I saw, I’d say Clark was the arrogant one. But, that’s just me. He’s just your basic cop hating asshole. I hope he pleads innocent and requests a trial. Perhaps the judge can read his column, watch the video, and double his fine. Asshole!
