Sioux Falls Police Department Tackles and Arrests Man for Flipping Bird and F-Bombs at Cops

I don’t know the guy dropping f-bombs and flipping birds at the Sioux Falls PD. I don’t know the guy shooting the video.

But I will accept this video of three cops tackling a citizen on the sidewalk yesterday evening in Sioux Falls as evidence of the police state here in Trumpistan. The public expression that apparently triggers the incident begins at 9:45; police intervention begins at 17:45:



Jeremy Fugleberg reports SFPD was responding to a traffic accident at 41st and Carolyn when it decided that Mark Burgess obscenely and loudly expressed opinions of the police were sufficiently disorderly and obstructive of police activity to warrant tackling him and hauling him to jail… or so SFPD Lieutenant Adam Petersen told YouTuber James Freeman at 1 a.m.:

The two discussed the incident, and Petersen told Freeman why police had issues with “people sitting there yelling at police.”

“It makes it very difficult to do our job, especially at one of the busiest areas during the busiest times of the day – they’re trying to deal with an accident,” Petersen told Freeman. “It just adds a lot of stress to it. They’re trying to do their job. And the other gentleman that came up and became very exuberant, unfortunately this all happened” [Jeremy Fugleberg, “Sioux Falls Police Say ‘Videoed Encounter’ with Officers on Friday Under Review,” that Sioux Falls paper, 2019.08.10].


I get yelled at sometimes. Such yelling adds some stress to my job. Do I get to tackle those exuberant shouters… even if they stop shouting and run away?

2. I PRAY THIS MAN BECOMES A MILLIONAIRE

I think his First Amendment Rights were violated meaning FREE SPEECH. If the cops think some man talking makes their job hard they should be arrested for ASSAULT. They should be fired and placed in prison for one year minimum for breaking the law. The officers who did not release this man should all be fired and placed in prison for KIDNAPPING. The supervisors should all be fired for promoting ILLEGAL activities. Federal agents should take over the police in this state until a better breed of people can be hired.........
