Policeone comments on a man police LIED about, felonized

The NLG were there and saw what occurred; the cop claimed Danny punched him in the chest, 
knocking him off his bike. 
Everyone else saw a cop grab a man from behind, by the collar, and give him a felony assault charge.  
LIARS. How lovely that LYING is okay with you, not the LAW you are supposed to convey. How 
lovely that his complete innocence is of zero concern to you, or even appears in your conversation. 
If there is a problem here, it is YOU.

'Occupy' protester: Week in Chicago jail 'was awesome'

Charged with assaulting officer; case was dismissed by local judge

CHICAGO  A Los Angeles man in town for anti-NATO demonstrations earlier this month has been cleared of attacking a Chicago Police officer. And he spoke highly Tuesday of his week in Cook County Jail.
"It was awesome," Danny Johnson, 31, said of his incarceration here. "I would not speak badly of my time in Cook County Jail."
Johnson, a member of Occupy Walk USA, said he cherished his time in jail because it gave him a chance to educate inmates about the Occupy movement.
He spent seven days in jail before his friends were able to post 10 percent of his $10,000 bail. During his week, Johnson said he and another Occupy member, who was arrested on a drug charge, had "teach-ins" and sit-ins."
"It sucks because of what I had to go through, but it was also good because it opened a lot of people's eyes about the Chicago Police officers not having integrity," Johnson said.
Prosecutors charged Johnson with punching an officer in the chest after he asked Johnson to move off the street while Johnson spoke out during an anti-deportation protest in the Loop on May 15.
But Johnson, who wore a black shirt that read "unf--- the world" inside out during his bond hearing, said he never touched the officer.
"An officer grabbed me as I was going through the crosswalk and told me I was under arrest," Johnson said.
Cook County Judge Marvin Luckman believed him.
The judge last week dismissed the aggravated battery and obstructing traffic charges, saying there was no "probable cause."
Johnson, who was in Arizona Tuesday, said Luckman "kind of belittled me, and called me all types of names, but after his tirade, he said he wasn't going to send me to jail."
Danny Johnson was cleared of attacking a Chicago Police officer during the anti-NATO protests.

His speaking of integrity is akin to when hookers accuse you of being a liar because you didn't tell them you were a cop. They can lie all they want but if you do, well that's just beyond the pale.

If he liked a week; hell let's give him a year he'll really enjoy himself.

A cop's word no longer supports probable cause? Gonna be awful hard for arrests and warrants and such.

Maybe he will sue the judge for defamation of character and another liberal judge will uphold the suit lol
