Quote:
Burlington, VT – 18-year-old Logan Huysman took to social media after her arrest, claiming that Burlington police sexually assaulted her. She even showed off bruises on her arms as proof. In response, Chief Brandon del Pozo released the bodycam footage which showed an impaired Huysman acting disorderly, assaulting police officers, and more (video below.)
But women never lie about being raped/sexually assaulted, right?

This is becoming a disturbing trend.What's worse is EVERY cop car has a dash cam and MOST cops have personal cameras on! These idiots should think before lying about their actions.

What's sad is she was being defended by the American Criminal Lovers Union.

I think this goes to show that body cameras are not about a war on police. They also protect police officers from false accusations.

I saw that. They have actually had the gall to chide the POLICE CHIEF for standing up for his officers....wth?! This country is going nuts. She could have literally destroyed those officers lives if there had not been a video. Good lord.

I agree.

I used to be very skeptical of cams everywhere, but I am coming around to the idea that they are usually a good thing.

I am all for knowing what really happened, in any situation.

It's statistically uncommon for women to lie about being raped.

This is precisely why body cams are a good idea. It protects everyone involved.

18 and stupid, and using being a female as a weapon. Nice that the police could easily show the truth, as I like others am tired of people attacking the profession that helps us to be safe. Yes there are bad/corrupt cops as with any profession, but that doesn't warrant attacking the entire profession.

The ACLU is filled with insane people. They're not happy that the chief "released facts about the case in order to counter lies"??? What, they were supposed to remain silent and look guilty so people could talk about this as if it really happened?


Quote:
The ACLU is not happy that the chief released facts about the case in order to counter lies spread by Logan Huysman, accusing him of using facts to “shut down conversations.”


“There’s a fine line between engaging the community, which is something we want our law enforcement officers to do, and doing what some might see as trying to shut down conversations,” said Jay Diaz, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont, according to Katie Jickling with Seven Days. “Affirmatively posting on a citizen’s Facebook page, especially in a sensitive situation, seems fairly inappropriate and would be understandably chilling.”

And kudos to Dad.

Quote:
Logan Huysman’s father saw the footage and it siding with the police, saying, “She was resisting arrest, and she had to be forcefully put in the police car. The police showed more patience than I would have.”
