Suspect Accuses Officer Of Planting Evidence, Body Cam Footage Shows A Different Story

This post was originally published on July 28, 2021. It is being re-published as a reminder of the sickening aftereffects of the anti-police movement. We must not forget who instigated this movement and make our voices heard at the polls in November.

Suspects are getting so bold these days, that they will even claim that officers have planted evidence instead of admitting to crimes themselves. Of course, claiming that a law enforcement officer has planted something, opens quite the investigation.

Planting Evidence?

At 3:22 p.m. on July 21, Caledonia police officers stopped a vehicle for driving 63 in a 45 zone. After the stop, one of the riders from the car accused the arresting officers of planting the evidence in their car.

According to Caledonia Police Chief Christopher Botsch, the four body cams that were on sight showed a clear view of the scene. The officers removed the driver and two seatbeltless passengers from the back.

The front passenger flat-out refused to get out of the car and follow the officer's instructions. He did take out his phone and film the incident. His footage did not show the whole picture.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the officers found a "corner tear" in one of the occupant's pockets. This is usually how people carry illegal drugs.

The baggie was empty so it returned to the back seat of the car. The front seat passenger was still filming and asked the officer, "Hey bro, what's that?" The officer was not quite sure what the passenger was referring to.

Accusations Fly

The passenger says, " I got you on camera bro." The officer replies, " I got you on camera, we're all food.

In the video, you can see a plastic baggie piece and a lighter in the vehicle. The passenger tried to pass off the blame. "Hey... you just threw that in there."

“Yeah, cause it was in his pocket and I don’t want to hold onto it. It’s on their body cam that they just took it off of him, so…" replied the officer.

The passenger pushed, angling that the baggies 100% came from the officer. The officer once again reiterates where the bag came from.

Nothing to See Here

The police chief defended his officer on social media, letting everyone know they did not do anything wrong, especially since there "were NO DRUGS in the corner tear."

“While we would discourage officers from discarding items into a citizen’s vehicle, the video is clear that the officer is NOT planting evidence or doing anything illegal. Additionally, the empty corner tear is not itself illegal."

No one was arrested in the incident and the driver was cited for speeding.

  1. It's easy to see by the way the passenger speaks o the officer that he has no respect for any law enforcement. We that attitude I would have called a drug dag and detained them for an hour while waiting. Respect goes both ways.

  2. Just another example of criminal vs cop, and criminal is trying to distract and play innocent. GO COPS support the BLUE LINE, and GOD BLESS them, remember there are some bad cops, and there are some good cops, nothing is perfect, and remember there is ALL BAD CRIMINALS .

  3. The police officer that this person accused of planting evidence, should sue them for
    defamation of character. It is clear that this person has no respect for the police and
    will do anything to make them look bad. I hope that something happens to them and
    they need the help of the police. The Police should tell them to go f—- yourself……

  4. I am so sick and tired of these loud mouth, disrespecting POS punks. The ignorant f**k needs a wooden shampoo.

  5. The liberals and the democrats will of course side with the druggies and make a federal case of a cop planting evidence because this idiot criminal says so-- and of course -- a criminal wouldn't lie. After all they have been protecting hunter biden for years.

  6. Wore a badge 37 years. Treated everyone the same as I would like to be treated! That was in 70s - 90s. Its a different world now and its sad!

  7. Just wait until this idiot needs officer assistance in the future. Then the moron will be singing a different tune then maybe not there will be something wrong with the response.

  8. these asshole criminals claim they didnt do it everytime !defence lawers should be shot most of thime they get these scum of the earth off on teck reasons ! so they can reofend again,and most of these offenders are repeat offenders ,they just move on to bigger crimes !!
