Miami Cop Fearing Termination after Altercation With Internal Affairs Lieutenant He Pulled Over

 

 

 

 

” A Miami police officer pulled a car over for speeding last month, which turned out to be a plainclothes internal affairs lieutenant who shoved the door open on the officer after refusing to provide his drivers license, leading to a struggle on the side of the road that was caught on camera.

  As the two were on the ground wresting, another three Miami cops who just happened to be in the area pulled up and piled on the screaming driver– only to pull off when they realized the man at the bottom was an internal affairs lieutenant from their own department.

  That was when the officer Marcel Jackson, the cop who initiated the stop, was sent to his patrol car and internal affairs Lieutenant David Ramras assumed control of the situation.

  Realizing the outranking officer with more than two decades of seniority over him was going to turn him into the aggressor, Jackson pulled out his cell phone and began taking photos of the officers that began arriving.

  But then a cop ordered him to stop. And another cop later ordered him to delete the photos.

  However, unknowing to the other officers at the time, Jackson had video recorded the entire incident with his GoPro camera, which he had attached to his dash, but shoved in between seat after realizing they were turning against him, keeping it recording to capture the ensuing conversations. The department does not use dash or body cams, so it’s not something they would expect.”

Flying A Drone Through Fireworks May Land You In Prison

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Every Fourth of July there are stories about idiotic things that people do while celebrating Independence Day.  This year’s story is probably going to be about drones and fireworks.

  The proliferation of consumer drones (also known as quadcopters or remote controlled helicopters) has generated countless news stories about irresponsible things that people do with their new toys.  Those stories have prompted many to call for new laws, but most of the unsafe conduct we witness occurring with these toys is already arguably covered by existing laws.  Consider the video posted by Jos Stiglingh, that’s sure to give amateur drone operators a few bad ideas.  The video, filmed with a GoPro Hero 3 Silver, shows the view from a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter flying in and above a fireworks show.”

 

 

    There is no doubt that the video afforded by the drone flight through the fireworks is spectacular and there is certainly a measure of risk to the drone from the exploding shells , but having worked for several professional fireworks companies I must state the the tone that the Forbes author adopts towards the end of his piece is a bit alarmist as regards the danger posed to the pyro-technicians and spectators …

 

 

” There’s no doubt that the HD video is stunning.  It’s also dangerous and likely unlawful (at least if it occurred in the United States).  The flight is unsafe as the existence of the drone in the airspace above the fireworks display creates an increased risk of hazardous debris (from the fireworks or the drone) falling into spectator areas.  There is also the remote possibility that a firework colliding with a drone may divert the pyrotechnic downward into spectator areas, causing it to detonate where it otherwise should not.  The drone in this video made it safely through the fireworks, but put a few more drones in the air and you’re also bound to have a mid-air collision.  All of these factors show how this operation was unsafe.  While this drone operator escaped getting hit with a firework, there’s no way he could have planned that.  Avoiding the explosions was luck, not skill. “

 

 

   First and foremost one must consider that these grand pyrotechnic displays are not shot straight up , nor are they aimed to explode over the tops of the audience’s heads . That would be ludicrous in the extreme . All displays are set up with the express understanding that any given lift charge could fail thus enabling a product of anywhere from 3″ to 12″ to explode at any altitude , including in the tube itself . For that very reason all displays are set up far from the audience and aimed over an area , often water , that is uninhabited .

    All fireworks displays are carefully set up with the idea that dangerous debris will fail from the sky and an obliterated 5 pound drone is unlikely to cause any harm to anything other than the owner’s bank account . Just another example of State control , this time propagated with the help of Forbes .

Stunning Time-Lapse Video Released For 9/11 Anniversary Shows One World Trade Center’s Spectacular Rise Over The Past Nine Years

 

 

 

” A moving time-lapse video released to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks shows the nine-year construction of the 1,776-foot One World Trade Center from the ruins of Ground Zero.

Produced using hundreds of thousands of high definition cameras positioned overlooking the building site, the video was produced by EarthCam and unveils the assembly of the 104-story building which is the tallest in the Western hemisphere.

Starting from the ground and then up, the beginning of the time-lapse shows the cleared area left by the collapsed North and South tower’s become a huge construction site and culminates in the installation of the huge 408-foot, 758-ton silver spire that now tops out the skyscraper.”

 

 

 

As a bonus here is a GoPro video of the spire being lifted into place atop the new building .

 

 

Enjoy !
