If you hold a position or work in a field that gives you a lot of power
over others it is important to learn how to balance it. There are many
instances where people abuse the power they have which negatively impacts
the system it is in. There are many shows on television that attempt to
portray what happens when someone with authority abuses it. It is often
spinned as a good thing because they always seem to catch a bad guy. However,
in reality when police officers or those with power don’t do the
right thing, innocent people are mistreated.
For one young lady, her experience with an officer and his abuse of power
caused her to be unnecessarily assaulted.
Lexy Alpha, a 22-year-old woman who walked through an officer’s traffic stop,
lived the nightmare of an upset police officer’s brutality. The
officer in an unwarranted attempt to arrest her grabbed her by the neck
and forced her onto the ground, giving her a concussion and broken teeth.
After review of the case and how it was handled the police officer that
assaulted her was charged with assault and is on suspension. Luckily this
officer was reprimanded for his actions but many times, officers aren’t
and we still have to deal with them.
After hearing about this unfortunate interaction there are a couple of
important things to note. The cop in this situation was at fault, but
by unnecessarily arguing the situation was escalated. arguing with a cop
is not technically illegal but definitely not going to work in your favor,
whether you are innocent or not. It is better to comply with a cop and
then hire an attorney or ask for an investigation afterwards. If a cop
stops it will do you no good to argue or resist arrest. You won’t
ever win and you’ll end up getting yourself in more trouble than
necessary. If you encounter a similar situation it is important to get
a lawyer and inform the head of police of the matter. Don’t try
to handle this alone.
