California Cops Break Into House Without a Warrant, Tase Man Who Complains About Police State and It’s All on Video

Photo Credit: West Midlands PoliceIn this video, a group of officers arrive at a home and, through a closed screen door, demand that the occupants come outside.

The unidentified man inside, along with his female companion, demand that the officers produce a warrant, but they don’t.

When the police continue to demand that they come outside, and order that both occupants raise their hands, the man responds that he doesn’t live in a police state with martial law. He also warns the police that he is video-recording everything.


Eventually, the police breakthrough a side door and tase the man with the video camera. It sounds as if his female companion may have been tased as well.

    Joe – please keep us updated on this.

    This is amazing. Our police forces must be demilitarized.

    • 946towguy

      Exactly! These police think that they have weapons for the purpose of making, “Assaults.” They are not the military and they do not possess weapons for the projection of power. The police are ONLY supposed to draw their firearms when there is an imminent threat of death or serious bodily injury to self or other person AND they are precluded from using a lesser level of force. The taser may only be used to temporarily disable a violent person who is an immediate threat to himself or others. The concept of self defense requires that the person claiming this right cannot be the aggressor. You cannot justify using a taser on someone while unlawfully forcing entry into an occupied dwelling.

      Keep in mind that these cops were investigating a potential misdemeanor, not committed in their presence, where both the alleged perpetrator and the alleged victim claimed no crime had been committed.

        Keep drinking your moon shine on that cloud of weed! This is a domestic violence call in CA with kids involved. These officers had more than probable cause. In other state where officers or the law tends not to give as much of a sh_t about domestic violence calls children and the abused died were murdered as a result! This isn’t about the police its about CA law!!!

        • 946towguy

          Spam Spam Spam.
          Please read the post and some CA law before making absurd comments.

          • I know the law and CA state regulations! When responding to a domestic violence call it is the police departments responsibility to ensure/prove everyone’s safety! Not take the alleged abusers word for it!

      • It was absolutely lawful for a domestic violence call! What kind of parent makes a domestic violence call or has neighbors that make the call for no reason to only then start a confrontation with police? Any normal responsible parent would happily agree to talk with police and show them everything is ok and everyone is safe especially the children! This guy and the female are both losers when it comes to brain capacity! I feel more than sorry for the kids and their future!

        • 946towguy

          What was lawful about the police officers behavior? The homeowners answered the officers questions from inside the home. They told the officers that the kids were playing peacefully, one inside and one in the back yard. Although they were under no obligation do do so, they showed the officer that they had no injuries and no evidence of a physical altercation. The officers looked through the curtains and saw no evidence of a crime being committed in their presence.

          There is no difference between me calling about alleged possible misdemeanor domestic violence (Yelling, Arguing?) at your house and me calling about you having your stereo up too loud.

          The police cannot just barge into a home because they want to and feel as though their badge grants them some sort of authority to intrude into people’s lives. There are reasons why we have the 4th amendment to our Constitution, and why we also enshrine those same rights in our state Constitution.

          If you watched the video, you will find that the only people assaulted were the husband and the wife. She got shocked when the husband was assaulted by the guys with badges.

          I will not call these hoodlums from Cotati Peace officers, because these men are an absolute disgrace to the uniform. Many of my friends and family are in law enforcement or private security. This is far below the standards that I would see in Private housing patrol in the Ghetto’s of Oakland and San Francisco. They bring shame on all of the good cops that patrol the streets of our state.

          • Are you unable to process anything? You the officers never take the alleged abusers word for anything especially on a hot call where people or kids could be in seriuos danger! Lol there is a big difference between a domestic violence call and a noise complaint as far as the law goes! Lol they could not show the officers anything through that obstructed window. They did not show them the children!!! This guy was a dumbass pure and simple!!!

            What the “officers” choose to believe is irrelevant. The “Alleged abuser” sic the home occupant doesn’t need to give any works for the “officers” to take or leave. He is under no obligation to answer any questions or prove anything. This is the United States, not 1700’s France. The accused doesn’t have to prove anything. Please read the 4th and 5th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

            I don’t know if he was a dumbass or not, but he was certainly better informed about the law than the, “Trained officers”.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            You are totally oblivious to the Law and what is required of the police, but then most citizens never have a clue anyway.

          • 946towguy

            I am not oblivious to CA law. What these men did under color of authority was illegal under California law, the California State Constitution, and CA court precedent, as well as CA jury instructions promulgated by the Judicial Council. The laws definitely vary by state, but Still must comply with the U.S. Constitution and court precedent. Police are bound to a higher standard in complying with the law than the average citizen. They derive their powers from the limited authority granted them by the state and their jurisdiction.

          • 946towguy

            I am not oblivious to CA law. These men acted illegally, under color of authority in violation of CA law, the CA Constitution, CA court precedent. They also violated the Federal Constitution and a few Federal laws.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Oh, so would this be like someone reporting a murder at a home…the police arrive and speak with someone at the door. The person at the door says, “no murder victim here?” The police turn around and leave. Is that you implication of how police should function?

  • dranalog

    Looks like in some sections of our country, we do live in a police state. Welcome to NAZI Germany or Cuba or Soviet Union, etc..

    • Dumbasses like you and the person that put this up is the reason real police brutality and abuse is never taken seriously! This was 100% lawful in responding to a domestic violence claim! Get your head out of the weed cloud!

      • dranalog

        Well, if I’m a ‘dumbass’, you have me beat. At least I am old enough to have lived through some of the things you have been fortunate enough to not have seen, or had experience with. You did not have a family that was persecuted and killed by a police state, lucky you.

        • I have seen and experienced more than you I am pretty sure of that. I have deployed places with lack of government where warlords have taken over and shoot families and family members as well as children on heartless whims!!!

  • Plaintruths

    New holiday?
    Taser-a-cop Tuesday?

  • Looks like law suit time…if this is as it appears, someone will own the WMPD.

    • CA state law when it comes to domestic violence the police had more than probable cause! No lawsuit will stand up in court here. No rights were violated according to law in responding to a domestic violence call! The alleged abuser was not cooperating common for many abusers. Thank God police officers actually cared enough to see if the children were ok!!!

      • 946towguy

        WRONG WRONG and WRONG!!!!
        What law are you referring to??
        Probable cause is the same for every offense traffic violations to murder. Somebody calling the police to report an argument does not constitute probable cause. It is only hearsay evidence, that an officer might respond to. The officer would need to ‘develop’ probable cause upon arrival at the scene through physical evidence and/or observation. Lacking this, there is no grounds for an arrest. On top of this, the welfare of the children seems only an afterthought. They asked about the kids, and nobody bothered to check on the kid playing in the back yard. They were more concerned with inflating their tarnished egos by tasering the homeowner and his wife.

  • More DHS trainees!!

  • There are half dozen cops there, and they perfectly illustrate an attitude that ALL police departments across America espouse–break doors down without a warrant, humiliate and taze those who refuse to give their immediate and total obedience to police, no matter what the possible infraction. The cops here should be made an example of, they should be fired and possibly jailed. But it will never happen Joe Miller. Police departments are being lavishly funded and given blank checks to buy more tazers, armored tanks, and endless gadgets to terrorize the population.

    • 946towguy

      I wouldn’t make such a blanket statement about ALL police departments. I know quite a few in Law enforcement, and none of them would be caught dead, behaving in such an unprofessional manner.

      Cotati is a little Podunk in Sonoma County outside Rohnert Park, on the outskirts of the wine country. The population of about 7500 consists of about 6000 whites, and 1400 hispanics, who mostly live in 1970’s- 1980’s houses and have blue collar jobs. What you saw was probably every officer on duty at the time.

    • It won’t happen because this is a Domestic Violence call in CA! Everything was done according to law pertaining to Domestic Violence!!!

  • doug43

    And they wonder why police have become targets…it is just this type of action that makes people become harden criminals. This was so uncalled for and everyone on this teams should face charges…because seeing these things happen makes me know that if anyone kicks in my door without reasonable cause…which was clearly not present (reasonable cause) in this video! I will shoot first! No One will come into my Home to do harm to me or my family!! Clear about that!

    What I seen was a bunch of cops that had their Ego’s hurt and refused to allow anyone to hurt their little egos!! I have a Gun and Badge..and your telling me No! You Question my authority!! Nothing more or less…EGO’s! Now if Washington wants to control Guns…take them away from crazy Cops like these guys!!!

    • Jarhead6541

      Even if they were wrong in entering, a shootout with half a dozen cops while your wife & kids stand in the spray zone is unacceptable. You must consider the potential for casualties other than yourself. Think about what the situation could have been had he opened fire on the officers. He’s much better off fighting this one in court.

      • LOL spray zone? That idiot was dumb but if he would have been dumb enough to shoot the officers checking to make sure the family mainly the children were ok then I hope they would have shot him dead for putting his family in danger and obviously legitimizing the domestic call! CA state law when it comes to domestic violence the police had more than probable cause! No lawsuit will stand up in court here. No rights were violated according to law in responding to a domestic violence call! The alleged abuser was not cooperating common for many abusers. Thank God police officers actually cared enough to see if the children were ok!!!

        • Jarhead6541

          My point was if he’s going to do something that stupid, he should not endanger others. Are you able to grasp that, or do you need smaller words?

          • My point was your point/comment did not pertain to this video. The officers know what they are doing because they are specially trained for domestic violence calls! Lol The officers know how to aim and shoot. So I don’t see a very long shoot out happening in this senecio if the DV suspect was stupid enough to pull out a weapon. And obviously the officers are not going to murder the entire family! A taser was used to subdue the dumbasses!

          • 946towguy

            The officers were breaking the law by having their weapons drawn. While I would not advise it, the “DV suspect” was well within his rights to shoot every one of those officers. I would hope such a situation never happens, and the best way to prevent such an occurrence is for officers in the Podunk towns to learn how to behave as professionals.

  • Joshua Bennett

    Criminals in costumes. The only thing surprising is that anyone is surprised that this happened. And there will be no retribution against the cops. This is what happens when an entity claims the monopoly on force and violence, and that entity is also the final arbitrator of it’s own disputes. The only way to end the police state is to get rid of the police and the State.

  • CSN

    This is frightening! I was hearing about this on a morning program here in Oregon. Wow is all I can say, and very unsettling.

  • Kal Kennedy

    Were the police being set up? Why were they there in the 1st place and why recorded?? If a domestic violence call is received, police have to go in, period! The weaker partner (sometimes husbands) could be beat to a pulp if they didn’t.
    THEN listen to the calls for dereliction of duty if a child or weaker spouse dies.

    • Yep…pretty much sums it up. A neighbor could have called 911 and reported “screamin’ and yellin over there” just to screw with the people there, and the cops have little recourse than to investigate. The police must do what they did….as if they would have just “up and left” the scene, and the guy hurt or killed his wife, the police department would have been held liable.

      • 946towguy

        The police, or rather the victims (Homeowners) may have been set up. But just because someone tries to set you up doesn’t mean that you need to behave in a completely unprofessional manner.
        The fact is that there is no liability on the part of the police for refusing to respond to a misdemeanor report. The police are immune from liability for any crime which they do not prevent, because courts have ruled that the police have NO responsibility to prevent any crime.

        They investigated and found no evidence of a crime. Then they decided to break both state and federal laws, because they allowed their egos to get involved. An overinflated ego and a little authority combined with illegally usurped authority is a deadly mix. It is fortunate that nobody was killed.
        By the way, if you watch the video carefully, the wife gets shocked by the Taser when the people acting under color of authority assault the husband.

    If I were his lawyer, we’d both be getting ready to make a whole lot of money from that city.

    • No you wouldn’t CA state law when it comes to domestic violence the police had more than probable cause!

      • 946towguy

        Wrong!!! Please cite your source. No probable cause that a misdemeanor was being committed in the immediate of the arresting party.

        • Lol There are many for starters SB 591 and SB 1944 and if you can’t find the rest on your own that’s because your a idiot!

          • 946towguy

            These are Senate Bills, not laws! Who is an Idiot?

          • They passed!!! Dumbass!

          • They passed over 10 years ago dumbass!!!

          • 946towguy

            Who’s a Dumbass? You are citing a proposed bill, not a law.

  • 946towguy

    So I watched the video and have my conclusion:

    1)These police officers committed several felonies and they all should be prosecuted.
    2)Every officer there had a duty to stop every other officer from committing a felony in their presence and failed to act. This is dereliction of duty and going long with it makes each of them jointly and severally liable civilly and criminally.
    3) This home owner is going to be able to sell his home and retire in another state when this is done.

    The police were responding to a call from someone else, that a misdemeanor may have been committed. Neither a private citizen nor a police officer has probable cause to make an arrest under California Law under these circumstances, and they would need to get a warrant before attempting to gain entry to the home. The only lawful things the officers could have done is requested that the home owner (suspect) voluntarily come outside, or they could try to interview the home owner (suspect) through the door. Since the yard was not fenced, the officers could legally come to the door to speak with him but could not enter without a warrant.

    California has a surprisingly strong castle doctrine supported by both the law and more than 150 years of precedent.

    California puts citizens on nearly the same footing as the police when it comes to powers of arrest.

    A citizen may use deadly force in many situations where a sworn Peace Officer may not. The law is designed to require Peace Officers to show more restraint.

    The home owner has the right to demand the officers to leave his property and if the trespassers do not leave within a reasonable amount of time or if they return, may use reasonable force to gain compliance.

    If the trespassers present deadly weapons, as they did in this video, clearly committing a felonious assault against both the home owner and his wife, the occupant of the home may use deadly force.

    Pursuant to CA penal Code 198.5, the occupant of a residence may assume that someone attempting to force entry is intent on violence and may use deadly force to prevent such entry. Furthermore, when a police officer or any other person uses to unreasonable force to effect an arrest, the person being arrested may use necessary force to defend himself from such an assault, including deadly force.

    • Keep drinking your moon shine on that cloud of weed! This is a domestic violence call in CA with kids involved. These officers had more than probable cause.

This isn’t about the police its about CA law!!! NO RIGHTS VIOLATED HERE

      • 946towguy

        First off, your ad-hominem attacks are inappropriate and unfounded.

        Second, spamming multiple posts with the same response is inappropriate.

        Third: You are blissfully ignorant of California law and since you state that, ” its about CA law!!!” we should examine that in more detail.

        Let us assume that the officers are responding to a, ” a domestic violence call in CA with kids involved.” The fact that they are responding to someone’s unsigned complaint is not probable cause. Such a statement by a concerned citizen is merely hearsay.

        So the police arrive at the home of the possibly misdemeanor in progress. They may legally enter the unfenced yard and knock on the door. They may legally request that the occupants come outside and talk with them. they may leave their business card on the door. They may note any evidence that can be seen from outside the windows, including looking through the open curtains into the living room.

        Both citizens and police have the same authority to make misdemeanor arrests under CA law. The misdemeanor must have been committed in the immediate presence of the arresting party. CA law gives the police no more authority than you or I to enter that persons home. Under CA law, Court Precedent, and the CA Jury Instructions, I have more authority to use deadly force against another human than a CA peace officer does. Police do have the authority to dispatch a severely wounded or sick animal to end its suffering.

        Probable cause:
        “In California, ‘an officer has probable cause for a warrantless arrest
        ‘if the facts known to him would lead a [person] of ordinary care and
        prudence to believe and conscientiously entertain an honest and strong
        suspicion that the person is guilty of a crime.”‘[Citations.]” (Blakenhorn v. City of Orange (9th Cir. 2007) 485 F.3rd 463, 471.)

        All that being said, the police lacked authority to do what they did. The husband and wife both stated that nothing happened and showed that they had no visible injuries. Both demanded that the officers produce a warrant or leave. Since they did not witness any criminal act, and had no citizen making an arrest, there was no action to be taken on the part of the officers other than leaving the scene and making a report.

        Demanding that the occupants come outside, under threat of violence is, however, a felony, punishable by 3, 5 , or 8 years (P.C. 207)

        Drawing or exibiting a firearm in a rude or threatening manner is also illegal (P.C.417) and in violation of POST standards and every departments use of force model.

        Remaining on the property after being asked to leave is illegal (P.C. 602). the property owner has the RIGHT TO USE NECESSARY FORCE TO REMOVE SUCH PERSONS!, according to Governor Jerry Brown, in a document he published as CA Attorney General!

        Entering an occupied dwelling to take any person or thing of value, or to commit a felony is a also a felony (P.C. 459) 6 years!

        Add to that, conspiracy, and the federal charge of violation of civil rights under color of authority.

        Do a little legal research and you will find that I am completely correct.

        • Do your research silly! When a domestic violence call is met with resistance (and let me just add for common sake pure stupidity and irresponsibility) , you just gave the police more than probable cause!!!

          • 946towguy

            Maybe your issue is that you just don’t understand the term, “probable cause.”

  • Ann Minch

    While I am in the paranoid police-state camp, I want to know the rest of this story before putting my stamp of outrage on it.

    • Why? First off that batty sounding male with obvious character flaws who owns or rents that home is a idiot! What’s the whole story? This was a domestic violence call and there were kids in the home! CA has many and some of the best laws when it comes to protecting victims of domestic violence. These police had more than probable cause to enter the home. Once inside batty joe and his off kilter girlfriend are trying to grab or push back the officers. All they simply had to do was speak to the officers face to face so they could make sure everything is fine and the kids are safe. Dumbass batty joe has to act suspect and crazy! I am all for citizens rights/anti police state whatever but this is anything but!!!

      • 946towguy

        Wrong!!! Please cite your source.
        You clearly do not understand what probable cause is.
        They did not have probable cause to believe that the husband was in the act of committing a misdemeanor crime in their immediate presence.

        Probably cause that specific evidence is present inside a home is grounds for the officers to go to a judge with an affidavit and request a search warrant.

        The home owner didn’t have to do anything. He probably should have just refused to answer the door and called his lawyer.

  • rp

    What we don’t know in this video is what happened prior to the break in. This couple may have a domestic violence history. They did say they were having an argument. The man’s wife could have been assaulted in some prior experience. If the police had some reason to suspect the woman was in immediate physical threat, would I condone this action. What we didn’t see in the video was the woman in front od the camera. She could have been bleeding from a punch to the nose, had her clothes torn, or some other reason for the police to question the husband’s response.

    The one thing I do question is the wife being tazed. If she was to be the person at risk, why would they down her? I know this video looks bad, but there are things we don’t know that may come to light. There are a lot of times women are afraid of retaliation from their husband’s wrath that will say under duress that they are ok and have a couple teeth missing from a fight a few minutes prior. It’s easy to judge this incident from just the video. This is like the Rodney King incident; the thirty seconds that the media would always leave out of Rodney first attacking the cops that pulled him over. There were reasons the cops did what they did to Rodney. It was excessive, but most was justified. If the woman was under no threat and had no injuries, then it’s time for a big lawsuit. Then take that money and move out of the state, before their house is stormed again.

  • The Black Wall

    Not trying to be an ass but…. I can see what would of happened if the police had knocked and everyone said everything is fine officers, nothing to see here, go back to your donuts. And then the police left. Then it would be said that the husband forced her to say everything is fine, and when they left without investigating, he beat her to a pulp. Damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. And to the one saying you can only deploy an ECD when in danger obviously has no idea what the damned thing is for. If you are non compliant, the officer has only two options, make you compliant by physical force, or less lethal force. If you are being non compliant, which way would you like the officer to deal with you? Cause he ain’t just gonna walk away simply because you demanded him to.

    • Freedom

      Black wall, you’re an ignorant Communist loving piece of garbage and I hope you get tazed just like this one day and then tell us that the police were doing their job. As the law states.. the police cannot act on anonoymous tip or private citizens tip, they have to observer the behaviour themselves to warrant this kind of action.
      IF the police saw the domestic violence to the point of SOMEONES LIFE BEING IN DANGER – At that point they would not need a warrant and would have probable cause. I.E. they see someone in danger or immenint threat. as the report says – someone REPORTED ARGUING ETC…
      Do you see an imment threat?!?
      is a camera a threat?
      is people standing up for their rights given to us as being citizens of united states a threat? Tell me where the violence is in this video… TELL ME GENIUS.
      We as free people are not required to bend over and take what ever action the police deem necessary and Police are there to serve and protect, not jump to conclusions, or make ASSUMPtions becaue they had a friend, relative who was a Victim of domestive violence AND NOW ALL PEOPLE ARE SECRETLY HIDING IN THE SHADOWS AND ARE GOING TO KILL THEIR CHILDREN BECAUSE REASONS.
      ME COP- I TAZE- STOP RESISTING 100,000 VOLTS AND CONVULSING WHILE YOU HAVE A HEART ATAACK BECAUSE THE TAZER IS SUPPOSED TO FIX ALL SITUATIONS.
      This is to protect US from mallicious or vendentful action by our neighbors via simply tipping the police off and causing ebmarasing/ destructive behaviour such as this, and you’re a moron for supporting it, either that or you’re a cop and should be fired, tazed and shot for being a traitor to your sworn duty.

          Please try reading a few law books before you comment on CA law.
          This wasn’t about domestic violence, since there is no evidence of it here. This is about a few cops with over-inflated egos getting upset when the are told, “NO, you may not exceed your authority at my expense!” How dare a peasant refuse the demands of a knight? Not in this king’s country!!! To the pen-stocks you shall go for your insolence!

          • Silly boy it is you that needs to read CA Domestic Violence laws and regulations! The CA call is the evidence/probable cause!!! Again, It is the police departments responsibility when responding to DOMESTIC VIOLENCE to make sure everyone is ok!!!

          • 946towguy

            A call by a neighbor reporting a possible misdemeanor in progress IS NOT PROBABLE CAUSE!.. It is hearsay. Please refer to CA Penal Code 836, which specifies under which conditions an arrest may be made by a peace officer. Please note that the domestic violence “exception” in P.C. 836 (c) (1) only applies to arrests made persuant to violation of a restraining order. The “Exception” under P.C. 836 (c) (3) only states that the offense does not need to be committed in the officer’s immediate presence and that the officer can effect a citizens arrest made by the victim. The officer is shielded IF it turns out the offense was not in fact, committed, ONLY as long as the officer made the arrest with probable cause that the offense actually occurred and that the arrestee is the perpetrator.

            The officer still needs probable cause to make such an arrest. In this case, they lacked such probable cause.

            You have not cited a specific code that supersedes the U.S. Constitution, the CA State Constitution, or the CA Penal Code.

  • First off that batty sounding male with obvious character flaws who owns or rents that home is a idiot! What’s the whole story? This was a domestic violence call and there were kids in the home! CA has many and some of the best laws when it comes to protecting victims of domestic violence. These police had more than probable cause to enter the home. Once inside batty joe and his off kilter girlfriend are trying to grab or push back the officers. All they simply had to do was speak to the officers face to face so they could make sure everything is fine and the kids are safe. Dumbass batty joe has to act suspect and crazy! I am all for citizens rights/anti police state whatever but this is anything but!!!

  • I would have shot them dead!

      Although he would have been justified in shooting all of them dead, I wouldn’t condone him doing so when he was not likely to be killed by the “officers.” Had he done so, he would be a defendant in criminal court, if not dead on a slab. The “officers” would have the opportunity to destroy the evidence of their misconduct.

      As it stands now, he gets to maintain the moral high ground. He and his wife have only suffered minor physical injuries, but they will be able to own that department when this is over. Hopefully, at least the supervisor will be criminally charged, causing other departments to take notice.

    This is a one sided video. What brought the police to that home to begin with? Okay, so lets suppose that police simply went away. Lets suppose that there was someone out of sight who had been beaten up, but the police simply went away? Will all of you complainers then say that the police aren’t doing their jobs? There would be a civil suit and the police would lose. That’s exactly what would happen. 99% of the police are doing their jobs to protect you. Yeah, there is that 1% of the police who are idiots, but you’ll brand all of the police for what that 1% does? If you don’t like how the police function, and what they are REQUIRED to do by law, then CHANGE THE LAWS !

    Very misleading title. The police had probable cause when someone called the police for suspected domestic violence. I know we are itching closer and closer to a full blown police state if we’re not already their however, this was not the time nor the place for that sort of debate.

    Listen people; When practicing civil disobedience, its important to be WITHIN those constitutional boundaries. When law enforcement has probable cause, you lose and its time to comply.
