Cop executes dangerous ‘pit maneuver’ to flip vehicle… Pregnant woman inside…

NEWS JUNKIES -- CHECK OUT OUR HOMEPAGE


 

A pregnant Nicole Harper was on her way home when Senior Cpl. Rodney Dunn caught her speeding on I-67/167 outside Jacksonville, Arkansas. Dunn claims that once he flashed his lights, she fled; however, Harper says she “was trying to find a safe place to stop on a section of interstate that has a reduced shoulder.”

 

The police dashcam video from Dunn’s patrol car shows Harper trying to negotiate the reduced shoulder by pulling into the right lane, slowing down, and turning on her hazards. Her actions appeared in line with Arkansas state guidance. Dunn nudged her vehicle, forcing Harper’s car into the concrete median and causing it to flip. Dunn used a PIT maneuver, or Precision Immobilization Technique, that involves deliberately hitting and spinning out cars during chases.

There was an obvious shoulder to stop on. And the officer vehicle would have been behind her. Stupid to decide she would re-write the scenario of the stop

Just another corrupt tax collector posing as a peace officer, his whole existence is based on using propaganda (public safety) to justify endangering the lives of all the citizens with judicial terrorism.

He belongs in jail but he will get an “atta boy!” from his Commander for being so committed to his nanny state/tax colletion agenda.

Thee simple things would eliminate this recklessness of traffic cops and little criminal mafia towns across America that use the interstate as their revenue source: 1) outlaw Civil Forfeiture 2) outlaw monetary fines for crimes and require a jury trial for all crimes that the government determines worthy to prosecute. 3) eliminate qualified immunity. Problems solved.

De-escalation is a critical part of training in MOST of Americas policing agencies today, mostly because of cops like the one in this story. To jump from a civil infraction, reaction, to jailbreak murderer styles of reaction, on his part, is a gross violation of the public trust in his policing authority.
In our county, the Sheriffs call for backup on suspected vehicles, they do NOT execute pit manoeuvres. In fact, I can safely say that after 40 years in this city, and working hand in hand with the police in my job, I have NEVER heard of a cop doing this to ANYONE in our city of almost 400,000 people.

Hey he should have just used the new technology that lets hm see into the car and then read her thoughts as she kept driving for over 2 minutes. The same tech that could have told him she was pregnant. It was a judgement call. It didnt work out.
But if it had been someone with a gun drugs a felon etc etc etc…
You woulda never heard about it.
All the media focuses on is the F ups.
But with out the police….. This country would be the wild wild west come to life again all across the land.
Worse than its getting.
So keep up the raging against the police… but at the same time you better get a gun and ne prepared to use it.
Because without the police… its all gong down the drain.
Thats the only thing keeping things going. Law and order.
So keep doing the commies job and attacking the entire law enforcement apparatus of the USA.
Suckers.
Remember all cops are bad because some make mistakes. And while you are at it join BLM and Antifa. They hold the same views on the police.

They expect 100% perfection, 100% of the time over the course of a 20-30 year career from these humans in uniform. And if they happen to fall short of those unreasonable expectations even once over those 20-30 years then they want them bankrupted and buried under a jail somewhere. But they still want them to apprehend law breakers. Because they’ve been 100% perfect and everything they’ve ever done in their own lives has worked out just as they planned. No mistakes ever. Nothing but perfection from them.

She was running and the cop did his job. Obey the law and this won’t happen. Don’t like the speed limit? Don’t like the law? Then vote to change it. Otherwise, obey it. LAW AND ORDER.

How was she “running”?? Had her flashers on, slowed down looking for a safer place to exit. I have done that with CA Highway Patrolman and he appreciated my pulling off the busy highway and just gave me a warning.

A crime requires an injured party. Go back and watch the video. Was the driver causing harm to anyone else? Did the policeman cause harm to anyone else (I loathe the word “officer” about as much as the word “expert”)? Who committed the crime?

In the last 4 years I’ve been pulled over for running a red, going left on a red arrow directly in front of a cop, running another red in SF while speeding, and blocking a police station egress I only received 1 written warning NO TICKETS. All of these moving violations occurred in the Bay Area. I was polite to the extreme in every case I told the police officer I’m sorry I did it I DESERVE THE TICKET. BOOM no tickets.

However this cop needs prison for his abuse of power and willful disregard for the life he was SWORN TO PROTECT.

PaulRevere1965

For your record, in the event that there was “no injured party”, the police, an official of the government, cannot bring a case against you. They try to claim “negligence” but would have a hard time proving it. Additionally, you should appeal that case until you get to a court of record where ONE of the FIVE requirements of a COURT OF RECORD is that the tribunal and the magistrate CANNOT BE ONE AND THE SAME. When a party in court moves to have proof of jurisdiction(said “authority”), it must be proven before any further steps in court are taken. If jurisdiction cannot be proven, the case is VOID. You do not give up your right to travel because you signed an adhesion contract to obtain a drivers license. Here is CA, “The People do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies that serve them”. I could go on…. Read about Common law and jurisdiction. The PEOPLE are the authority “to the government” as stated in the first paragraph of the Constitution. A legal fiction, our Government, cannot have authority if there are no injuries and you stand on your rights and make a STANDING IN LAW, not statute. FYI.

She wasn’t going far no matter what the need to stop her was. He could have followed her for twenty miles if need be with no problem or risk to anyone. Actions like this breed ill will towards police at a time when they can afford none.

My opinion: There are valid uses of the “pit” manouver – specifically when a driver is driving recklessly and creating a threat to other people, as as someone fleeing from an officer while speedings.

This woman clearly was not doing anything wrong. She put in her turn signal, slowed down, then put on her hazards. She followed the law.

There is no evidence that the driver posed a threat to anyone or was fleeing from the officer. The officer intentionally caused harm to the driver and risked her life, his own, as well as other drivers on the roadway.

The driver may have been speeding, and likely does deserve a ticket, but that officer should be fired and charged and the driver should receive an excellent compensation payment for both her vehicle and harm caused to her and her baby.

ToucheDoritos
ToucheDoritos

Well, here’s the deal for me. Was he pulling her over thinking she was a fleeing felon, she had an outstanding warrant, she was going felony over the speed limit? Because this Corporate Legacy Media report leaves all of that info out. They key in on her saying she’s pregnant and cue the Outrage Mob. You’d think by now, *spies 1513 comment count just on CFP thus far* that most people would’ve learned from the Covington Kids fake video to wait at least a day to learn more before bulging their neck veins over a carefully framed to suit the media’s narrative to maximize clicks fragment of a video.
.
Why would he PIT someone who had otherwise been cooperative? Why risk his career? Why risk the Outrage Twitter Mob?
.
Unless she hadn’t been cooperative up until she looked like she was gonna exit the freeway and keep running? What if she has an outstanding warrant and that’s why she was running? The fact that she’s pregnant is, sadly, no indicator of her being like any of our sainted moms, ok. Plenty of crack heads out there are pregnant, too, and they are their baby’s worst enemy. And apparently this one was no shining example, either, just if she was simply speeding, nevermind evading.
.
“14 miles over the speed limit”? Do you know that in Arkansas, there are long stretches of interstate with a posted speed limit of 75 mph? 75 + 14 = 89 mph.
.
Yeah, sorry, I’m not buying what Ian Miles Chong is selling here. I think he’s made the same stupid mistake a lot of you made with the Covington Kids and here we go again. Yes, you, because I never fell for that one. I ask a lot of questions before I just believe anything a video purports to depict, and most esp when the Corporate Legacy Media tells me anything.
.
Don’t get me wrong, I often agree with the guy, just not on this.

Not so fast. I’ve read several news articles about this and the lawsuit this women has against this officer, his sergeant, some Colonel who’s in charge of all of them and the city. I’ve seen no where that it is claimed she had a warrant out. Where is your proof? She was going 84 miles an hour not 89. The speed limit where she was driving was 70 at the time and has been raised to 75 now. You are just short of facts and brains. Here is the kicker…even if everything you said was true, she followed the law exactly once the cop turned on his lights. The Arkansas handbook literally says, “slow down, turn on your hazard lights to indicate to officer you are obeying, and find a safe place to pull over.” There was an exit less than a mile from where the elderly corporal tried to kill this lady. This cop simply had no business putting anyone’s life in danger…he’s power hungry.

She gave birth this past February. She was two months pregnant when this happened.

This would put the incident around July of 2020.

Big Trouble, I don’t care when it happened. My questions remain valid. I will reserve judgment unless and until more actual facts emerge, such as the trooper’s BWC footage and the booking footage if any.

ToucheDoritos
ToucheDoritos

Bob, you talkin’ to me? Because I didn’t allege anything, so demands for proof are ill-timed. I speculated about what else is going on that the Corporate Legacy Media has not told us. When and if this case does in fact get heard by a judge and jury (for it could settle out of court, as many suits tend to do), then whatever is presented in court as evidence is what I’ll take seriously, so should you. A complaint is a collection of claims and assertions that have to be proven in court, so for you to refer to it as if a fact source tells me that you are one of those quick to judge gullible vigilantes who fell for the Covington Kids fake video.
.
Oh, and your F’12 ACAB roots are quite obvious.

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA VIRUS
BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA VIRUS

You did allege something. Go read your post. You also misstated facts about this case.
Also, she was charged with evading. Not a warrant.

You also state “carefully framed to suit the media’s narrative to maximize clicks fragment of a video.”

The whole damn video from the time she passed him until they towed her car away is the last video right at the top of this page. Including officer Dunn mic which was on and you can hear everything he saying. Including the little white lies he told his superior at the scene.

Also, there is video of the road where it happened. The shoulder is not standard in that area. You can even see the cop doesn’t have enough room when he pulls a u-turn. one mile ahead the should gets wider(standard) and there is an exit.

Also, go read the State Police instruction manual to advise drivers on what to do when being pulled over.

1) Slow down
2) Turn on hazards to indicate you are going to pull over.
3) Find a safe place and not on a bridge or an overpass.
That is exactly what she did.
The point about the time of when this happened is because you cited too quick to judge until more info comes out.

Sorry, Touche. You missed this one by a bit

ToucheDoritos
ToucheDoritos

Big Trouble, you are babbling about things I have not seen posted here. What in the actual F makes you think you have seen all the video there is to see? You trust the media far too much. I lived through the Rodney King debacle. When I was able to see the ENTIRE video of the traffic stop, without media edits, I realized I and millions others had been lied to completely by the media. No, I have not missed anything by a bit or otherwise. Until I see whatever other video there is, and that video is considered in court, I reserve judgment. For you to try to judge the case with what LITTLE is now available on the little ol’ interwebs is sign of your eagerness to convict a fellow human on the flimsiest of pretexts just because you hate cops.
.
How do you like it when I call your motives out according to what I imagine your character to be? Then don’t do it to me.

The Driver was following the Law by Slowing down, Turning on Hazard Lights, and seeking a safe place to pull over – based on dash cam footage – the Douche did a pit maneuver 2 min after turning on his lights. He then tells the woman that is what you get for running and she says I was following the Law.

It was obvious from Dash Cam and Body cam this Arkansas Douche Trooper does not know the Law. Also 3 people have been killed in Arkansas by Douche Troopers using the pit maneuver this year.

The cops are only doing things professionally according to their training. The true fault lies at the top of the food chain, in the laws and regulations, the elites have written for these cops to execute. Yes, it IS the cop’s decision to execute or not, yet he could be held accountable for not following the corrupt procedures that place you and me in danger.

This is what actual systematic abuse looks like. They are all covering for the career corporal who appears to be the end result of hiring with the dumbed down IQ test. On high speed roads extreme speed differential causes collisions. Her excessive speed was a minimal risk compared to a stopped vehicle protruding into high speed traffic. He patrols that route and should be aware of the risk of having no safe road shoulder. She had acknowledged his presence and he should have continued the pursuit until she had found a safe place to stop. If she then refused to stop it would be considered flight and stopping it quickly as in this manner would be necessary. Although this type of reasoning may require an IQ above what they hire:)

Years ago in NC, NASCAR legend Richard Petty (was running for Gov at the time I believe), got pissed at someone driving slow on the highway, so he tapped them out of the way. That was warranted since driving slow in the left lane should warrant the death penalty (or pubic tar and feathering at least). This was not warranted however.

No body woulda heard a thing.

would result in less people being shot by the cops.

Here are some words: https://driving-tests.org/arkansas/ar-dmv-drivers-handbook-manual/
This is a link to the Arkansas drivers manual. Look at the very first rule: 1. Pull over to the right side of the road – activate your turn signal or emergency flashers to indicate to the officer that you are seeking a safe safe place to stop.

No one gives a crap what’s in your mind, she followed the law exactly once he turned on his lights to pull her over. It was clearly unsafe with not enough shoulder to safely stop on this highway at night time.
I hope she prevails in her suit and the end this stupid practice of killing people. Yes they killed three people last year doing this pit maneuver.

mark – the woman went to pull over but her vehicle 1/2 her vehicle was sticking out on the highway – it was a narrow shoulder and you should pay attention to the article that she followed State Law and that the Douche somehow did not know state law.

I was a cop for a short period many years ago before I graduated from College. I love most cops, they are decent hardworking people. You analysis is flatly brain-dead. The female cop in Minnesota (I think) who shot the black kid thinking she was tasing him was a mistake, she is going to jail for it. There are mistakes then there are really stupid mistakes. I think this is worse than the lady cop shooting the kid in that I think she made an honest mistake and did not intend to kill the kid, but she should still go to jail. What this guy did was thought out and intentional. He used deadly force on someone for speeding. I don’t care who it was, even if it was a gangbanger it is still wrong.

All that just for going 14 miles over the speed limit?!!?
Hell, 10-20 over the posted limit is standard cruising speed here in Texas.

The best policy though, is to pull over as soon as the cop turns on his lights, and then they will direct you to move if they feel it is necessary.

So they get to turn somebody going 14 miles an hour over the speed limit into a total wreck caused by the police to stop the dangerous driving which didn’t cause a wreck.

She kept going for a few seconds over 2 mins, 2 mins with lights and siren behind you is a long time, and there was plenty of room to pull over. Pit her? He didn’t even know her! Sorry. I think pitting her that soon was way overboard. He had signaled he was getting impatient pulling up beside her but… He did seem to have a God like attitude. I’d be curious to see what AR SP rules say about the pit.

In this case I think she should have pulled over, there was plenty of shoulder available. Or she should have slowed down to a walking pace and let the cop trail her. Basically she is an idiot for passing a cop at 80 mph then not pulling over.

As.for this pit manuever. Why not pull up next to her and demand she pull over first? Seems like everyone involved is an idiot. Pregnant lady driving 80 mph on the freeway…my great grandfather would throw his soup bowl against the wall and explain quickly that we deserve our stupid modern world.

Your great grandfather drove a model T that wasn’t capable of doing 80, plus had no airbags, safety glass, seat belts, etc. I feel a hell of a lot safer going 80 in a modern car than what your great grandfather tooled around in at 40.

Here is a recent news video on the incident. Clearly, the officer is not strong in the logic department. To paraphrase the conversation after the 27yr veteran corporal nearly kills her… Driver: “I was trying to get to the exit because it wasn’t safe to stop.”
Trooper: “Well killing your ass is what we do here.”

Most States allow a driver to pull over once off the highway where it’s safe. I’m sure Arkansas has a similar law. The PIT maneuver is extremely dangerous and should only be used as a last resort because like gunfire, PIT maneuvers can result in fatalities.

Uh… half your car sitting out on a major highway with the reduced shoulder is UNSAFE. We consistently see cases where an impaired or non-attentive driver slams into vehicles on a full shoulder, much less sliver of a shoulder with a concrete barrier on that stretch of road. If the imbecile had waited another 30 seconds, I wager she would have pulled off on the impending exit – THE FIRST SAFE SPOT SHE HAD. It was HIS DUTY to see if that was the case rather than committing a deadly act.

You don’t have to wager, the lady drove on for minutes with no exit and she didn’t drop down to a speed that would indicate compliance. Hazards are better than nothing and the pit was stupid overkill, but the lady would have been fine.

Hey clover sniff you moron when you are pulled over by the police and there is no safe place to stop you reduce your speed to the designated speed limit you turn on your blinkers and you move over to the right lane and wait for a place that is safe to stop.
Just because you’re legally illiterate doesn’t mean you should lash out at the informed people who are smart enough to know and research the laws

I think we are in the minority here. I can’t stand cops who are jerks, and this one is a jerk..but that lady had plenty of room and reason to pull over.

How could anyone on this site take the side of the duche bag, union, robot cop? If that’s my wife, the crap will hit the fan.

All of the idiots who are blindly defending the police officer if that it happened to them or their wife they would’ve already lawyered up and sued for millions of dollars
Keep one other thing in mind this style of forum and chat room all of the idiots blindly supporting the police officer are probably just a few people creating an infinite number of accounts

How are we “blindly supporting” when we watched the video? Shut the f up, if the cop knew she was white and pregnant I’m sure he wouldn’t have pitted her.

If your pregnant wife is driving 80+ on the highway passing marked cruisers, then you have bigger problems. That’s not a woman to be proud of she is another Privelidge dick. Anticop is a stupid game, they deserve plenty of criticism and also sometimes the perp is an antisocial narcissist…like yourself.

Some of us can see both sides of the coin and don’t get instantly heated. They were both in the wrong. The cop was too impatient and he had a God complex in my opinion. She was stupid, there was clearly room! If you live in a big city you learn quickly watching the news, do not ignore or piss off the cops. Pull over, yes sir no sir three bags full! Every day people get in far worse trouble just because they pissed off the wrong cop. You will not win!! This cop, I believe punishment is due, I think AR needs to change that pit policy, should require at a minimum a supervisors OK.
A friend was a bailiff, a cop can arrest you for obstruction, you’re cuffed, booked, spend at least a night in jail, maybe a weekend. Monday, charges are dropped you go home. Happens a lot he told me, if one cop does it a lot he get in trouble. They will win, if not today they now know where you live, work, etc. Don’t be pissy.

That officer is guilty of dangerous driving, and probably road rage as well.
Pretty bad behaviour.
