A group of teens was pulled over by a gang of from the Rockford Illinois , held at gunpoint, infuriating incident was captured on video. We use the term “gang” because the cops were plains clothes with some even wearing identity disguising gang-style bandannas. The stop resulted in no arrests, not even a ticket. Despite the threat of deadly force, the Rockford has refused to answer why the cop drew the gun or reported a the wrist for any of the officers involved stop.
It has been six months since these innocent teens had their lives threatened by crazed cops and not person has been held accountable.
From the video recorded, clear pulled over and was patiently the cops to approach the driver’s side window.
However, approaching and explaining why he was being pulled over, the officer who took the lead demanded the rear door be opened. It appears he told the passenger, “Open the door or I’ll shoot…” although the word shoot was muffled.
From what we are ascertain at , the officers violated the rights of the passengers be illegally stopped. Then they knocked the phones out of the hands of the occupants vehicle keeping them from recording the police contact, violation of their rights to record police interaction.
“Come out, put your phone down, brother,” the officer says.
“Why?” Rivera replies.
“Because I asked you the phone down,” says the officer.
“Why? I can record,” Rivera protests.
“Do it down or want me to knock it down?” the officer responds, phone falls to .
Erik Rivera, the passengers, uploaded the surviving video to Facebook and he says the officers searched vehicle, even looking behind the car’s brake lights.
Rivera says he lead officer have a history. The young man says the cop once knocked him off his 4-wheeler breaking his nose while giving him a gangland-style beating. Facebook post, Rivera describes the history he has with the lead officer seen video (below).
This is cop that arrested me a year and a half ago, cop that hit me off my four-wheeler and proceeded to beat me and break my nose.
Rivera reported the abuse of rights to the Rockford Scanner, newspaper. From the Facebook post, of what happened on April 10th is given.
Apparently, the protocol the Rockford Illinois enforces people over? I we’re being harassed and threatened…I feel as if no rights.
Rivera says he and his friends weren’t doing anything wrong were pulled over.

The young man also claims the cops engaged stop and search without a warrant and with no .
They never told us we were pulled over, and to top it off they consent the car.
He says the cops searched the car without a warrant and he questioned the behavior of all the cops involved.
In the past few months, reporters with WREX have sought information the stop, department has instead circled the wagons and denied FOIA requests and order from to release the documentation.
The department claimed there was an ongoing investigation — despite car being charged — reason for refusing to release . They later claimed had been arrested in murder and now that was they couldn’t release . That man was Preston Scott and he wasn’t even car the day of the stop, nor was he any active investigation when the stop .
It seems that the department is trying their mistake and protect cop who pulled a gun on innocent teenagers.
