Hammond police defended the officers’ actions, saying they “were at all times acting in the interest of officer safety and in accordance with Indiana law.”
Police said the officers repeatedly asked Jones to provide his identification, and later to exit the vehicle, but Jones “refused to lower the window more than a small amount.”

“The first officer saw the passenger inside the vehicle drop his left hand behind the center console inside of the vehicle. Fearing for officer safety, the first officer ordered the passenger to show his hands and then repeatedly asked him to exit the vehicle,” Hammond Police Lt. Richard Hoyda said in a prepared statement.

Although Jones and Mahone claimed there was no reasonable basis to believe Jones had committed a crime, Hoyda said, “In general, police officers who make legal traffic stops are allowed to ask passengers inside of a stopped vehicle for identification and to request that they exit a stopped vehicle for the officer’s safety without a requirement of reasonable suspicion.”

Hoyda said Jones refused repeated requests to exit the car, so the officers requested a squad car equipped with video recording equipment, and again asked Jones to get out of the vehicle.

“By this time considerable time had passed and both the vehicle and the officers were in danger of being struck by passing traffic,” he added.
Police said Mahone shifted the car into drive, and tried to drive forward, but officers told her the tires would be deflated by a stop strip police had put down in front of the car.

“The passenger continued to refuse to exit the vehicle after approximately thirteen minutes had elapsed, and upon request by at least three different officers present at the scene of the stop,” Hoyda said. “Fearing the occupants of the vehicle may have possessed a weapon, and seeing the passenger repeatedly reach towards the rear seats of the vehicle, the first officer then broke the passenger side window of the vehicle and the passenger was removed from the vehicle and was placed under arrest.”
“The actions displayed by the passenger during this traffic stop eventually led to the officers taking the passenger into police custody,” Hoyda added.

Great, in-depth piece on civil forfeiture from John Oliver:



It's crazy how he only has 30 minutes each week, and does more research and goes more in depth than most 24 hour news stations do all week.

You're looking at it backwords.

He doesnt do 30 minutes of research.

He does far more research to fill 30 minutes than any news network does to fill a 24 hour day.

What I find the most shocking is that a white family in Oklahoma would take in a black kid. Does the state pay extra for black kids?

Despite what many people would seem to believe, there are actually non-racist white people out there. BTW it happened in NC, not OK.

I actually have a 7 year-old child who calls me dad that I consider my child who also happens to be black. I am white and I am also in Oklahoma. :shrug:

A related article :

Asset seizures fuel police spending

Since 2008, about 5,400 police agencies have spent $2.5 billion in proceeds from cash and property seized under federal civil forfeiture laws.
Police suspected the assets were linked to crime, although in 81 percent of cases no one was indicted......

What Police Departments nationwide should do...is for 1 month...not arrest any Black male or female.

Sit back and observe what happens.

Ah ok. So....now you're saying if LE DOES NOT ARREST BLACK PEOPLE...because of outrage from a society who says their arresting behaviors are racist...is now racist. :lol:

I think we've proven that they're racist whether they arrest black people, or refrain from arresting black people.

Uhm, so...what are you implying?

I assumed he meant nothing of note would happen, which would make their whole black-profiling thing be unnecessary.
