Innocent man Tasered, almost beaten for 'dirty license plate' - taxpayers will be held accountable

 When police aren’t kidnapping, caging, and killing people for possessing substances deemed illegal by the state, successively creating a criminal black marketplace for them that drives up the crime, they're out enforcing traffic laws. Any number of arbitrary traffic infractions can and can result in your extortion, arrest, imprisonment, or within the case of Philando Castile, death. Policing for profit within us is the norm.

As the following case illustrates, as cops extort the masses and violate the rights of citizens within the process, they're almost never held accountable. it's the taxpayers who foot the bill instead.

Over but a year we’ve reported on stories of individuals being assaulted, arrested, and even killed over stops for victimless crimes like dark window tint, no safety belt, and burned out registration number plate lights. However, in a very decade of police accountability, we’ve never seen someone stopped and nearly killed for an unclean registration code — until recently.

Officer Kaleb Meyer with the New Braunfels department of local government may be a tyrant who pulled over Clarence Crawford last year and nearly killed him over a grimy registration code.

This week, Crawford’s attorney announced a lawsuit against the department after his client suffered embarrassment and pain after being forcibly far away from his car and tasered by an apparently racist cop for an unclean registration code.

“NBPD’s reckless failure to formally address Defendant Meyer’s conduct risks other jurisdictions hiring him without knowledge of his history of racial animus, racialism, and dangerous and reckless conduct on the duty,” the lawsuit says.

For having an “unclean license plate” Meyer held Crawford at gunpoint, dragged him out of his car, forced him right down to the bottom, tasered him in his back, handcuffed him, then kidnapped the person. Crawford had committed no crime and harmed nobody.

As the video begins, the crazed cop charges at Crawford in his vehicle, the gun was drawn and begins yelling at Crawford. Crawford, knowing he had committed no crime, pulls out his phone and films, politely asking why he's being held at gunpoint.

Meyer refuses to inform the innocent man why he's close to murder him in broad daylight. When Crawford is ordered out of the vehicle, he's so terrified he just puts both hands out, continuing to film within the process.

Crawford begs the cop to not shoot him and asks if he can release his life belt. As soon as he releases it, Meyer drags the innocent man from the car and so orders him to the bottom.

Crawford complies with everything he's told. When told to induce on the bottom, Crawford takes a knee. When told to urge all the way down, he gets all the way down. Like most of the people, however, Crawford visited the bottom slowly as to not get dirty or hurt himself. This angered the tyrant Meyer, who then tasered Crawford.

After the handcuffs are on Crawford, and he's writing from the taser, only then does Meyer tell Crawford why he attacked him.

Meyer claimed that each one of these forces was necessary because Crawford accomplished the interstate to somewhere safe when Meyer attempted to drag him over.

“I’m not stopping on [sic] no ************ highway,” Crawford said. “I pulled over when it absolutely was safe, that’s the ********** rules! And if you would like to tase me because I took that [inaudible] that's your ******* problem.”

When pressed for the rationale for the stop in the first place, Meyer then tells Crawford that he had a “dirty car place.” This was later confirmed by the department of local government similarly. Naturally, Crawford was upset and questioned the actual fact that Meyer held him at gunpoint.

“I made sure I wasn’t visiting get shot because your ****** *** came up to my car with a gun,” Crawford said.

In order to justify the disgusting abuse of power, Crawford was then arrested and charged with attempting to evade and interfere with police duties. He never received a citation for a grimy car place.

When authorities reviewed the evidence within the case, they refused to stay the fees against Crawford and that they were all dropped. However, it took 9 months for that to happen.

Despite this incident unfolding in January of 2020, the video was kept covert until November. After its release, New Braunfels Mayor Rusty Brockman and mayor, Robert Camareno both condemned Meyer’s actions.

“We want to create it abundantly clear that the actions of the officer within the video don't seem to be acceptable to the town of recent Braunfels and not representative of the lads and girls within the department of the local government of the town of recent Braunfels,” Mayor Brockman said. “We are working with our local theologist King Jr. association, the New Braunfels law enforcement officials Association and also the city’s newly formed Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Awareness forum to possess an open dialogue and to maneuver forward in a very positive way.”

“The actions of Officer Meyer don't seem to be acceptable to my office, to town Council, or to the New Braunfels local department,” Camareno added. “Our officers are trained to be respectful, to de-escalate situations, give clear and concise commands, hear those they interact with, and only use force when the case deems it necessary; the training and our expectations weren't met during this traffic stop. The experience Mr. Crawford had with Officer Meyer isn't acceptable.”

Despite the unacceptable nature of Meyer’s actions, he was never fired and quietly resigned in September. He was never disciplined by the department.
