Justified. The money could have been counterfeit so it's a good thing the cop seized it.

with all these cameras out there on phones and what not you would think that cops would be on their best behavior. maybe they're just too dumb to learn anything. all they know is fear and violence.

I mean... Was he searching him? Doesn't he have the right to remove all the items in his pockets?

Soooooooooo, from a 0:35 second clip, you guys have surmised that the footage is comprehensive enough to come to the conclusion that the cop "stole his money"? There are far too many details missing. I'm not saying he didn't, but I can't conclude that he did either. I can't wait to see what the official report states. The comment about why he's still on patrol is interesting (..not that it's entirely relevant). Some guys just like working the streets and have no desire to promote and 'manage' other officers under the rank of Sergeant or Lt.

I dunno man, all my guys on the force are on the "this guy needs to be fired" bandwagon. Pretty damning.

It looks bad, but I want to know what occurred prior to this video being filmed (..and what followed).

If he's actually lawfully searching someone, then absolutely he can take all the stuff out of his pockets.

But that doesn't look like a search. I mean, check his pockets, find something that needs to be confiscated, then just pepper spray the guy and let him run away? WTF?

There are very few situations where it would seem appropriate for a cop to check someone's pockets, confiscate something, and then not follow through on any kind of identification, detainment, citation or arrest. Seems to me if a cop confiscates something, then the person the item is taken from has done something wrong in order to be in possession of that item.

If Frank convinces a cop that he dropped $20 and Larry picked it up, but Larry is refusing to cooperate, I could see a cop checking Larry for $20, and on finding it, taking the money and giving it to Frank. I don't really get that vibe from this video, though.

But again, it's a short video with little information and no real context. So it's hard to draw too many conclusions from it.
