    What difference does it make though? He didn't commit any crime.

    The ego of a cop that thinks being yelled at warrants clogging up the system with one more arrest.

    I’m not saying the homeowner didn’t have a big mouth, and an ego to boot….Takes two to tango.

    That's a different argument. You're basically accusing them of lying about what happened based on the photo.

    Where is your proof that they 'roughed him up in his own home'????

    Are you still ignoring the report?

    I don't think that conclusion is fairly reached by any of evidence.

    And whose fault was it that he was wrongly accused?

    The person who called in the problem.

    I agree completely there. The woman who called it in completely overreacted.

    The charge was dropped because it was bull****. Not because these cops were racist. They arrested him on "being an asshole to the cops in public." Unfortunately for them, this guy had a the resources to call them on their nonsense.

    Folks who can't take some name calling have no business working in law enforcement.
    He is standing here being escorted by law enforcement from his home.

    Where can you read into it that is the location where he was arrested?

    Read the report, I believe it mentions something about securing his home.
