“Dallas, TX — A Dallas SWAT officer was caught on camera threatening to break a young boy’s neck while calling him and his mother pieces of sh*t.
This stand-up cop, Terigi Rossi, was regularly featured on the TV Show, Dallas SWAT. Ironically enough, this cop had no idea he was ‘on TV’ while assaulting and threatening a woman and child.
Rossi was demoted from SWAT in 2013 after he was found asleep on the job. Since then, he’s been on the regular beat and has taken to the streets to abuse women and children.
In October 2014, a woman called 9-1-1 because her car had been towed from her apartment complex. The woman thought the call was over, so she hung up the phone. However, police considered this a 9-1-1 hang up and sent Rossi and his partner Cpl Stacy Ward to investigate.
When they showed up, Ward was cordial while Rossi seemingly treated the situation like a SWAT raid.
When the woman answered the door, she explained to the officers that she thought the call was over, so she hung up and that there was no problem.
According to his police report, Rossi said the woman became combative and was banging on the door, so he placed her under arrest. However, Rossi’s partner, Ward’s account says the exact opposite, and that the woman was not combative or violent in any way.
After seeing his stepmother taken from her house and handcuffed, the young boy, with the highest level of respect, went to ask the officer why she was being arrested.
“Don’t look at her. Look at me, cause then I’ll take you downtown, then you gotta talk, then you’re gonna go to foster care. Okay. I need to know what happened here because right now, she’s going to jail,” says Rossi, which later turns out to be nothing but lies.
“For doing what?” asks the boy.
“For not listening to me.You can act like a tough guy all you want. Okay, she’s going to jail no matter what,” lies Rossi again.”
How many videos like this are people going to have to see before they realize that theses are not “Just a few bad apples”?
How many stories about abuse, rape, beatings and cruelty is it going to take to convince people that our “Public servants” are out of control tyrants?
These are the same individuals who as “Sworn officers of the court” are assumed to be telling the truth instead of the citizen they testify against
This needs to change and the perception that just because someone wears a blue uniform and straps on a gun is a hero, needs to change too.
