Copwatcher Founder Convicted For Resisting Arrest In Missing Camera Case

E-mail Print PDF

John KurtzJohn Kurtz, the Orlando Copwatch founder who was facing six years in prison for battery on a law enforcement officer, was acquitted of that felony charge last week.

But he was convicted of resisting arrest without violence – even though the officer testified he was not resisting – proving once again that Florida has an unethical and unconstitutional habit of dishing out resisting arrest convictions without underlying charges to justify the arrest in the first place.

And I’m still not clear on what the judge stated about Kurtz’s missing video camera, the one that was confiscated from him, never to be seen again, which would have proved he never physically pushed the cop. Nobody who attended the trial has been able to explain that to me (and yes, I’ve been asking).

In fact, it was surveillance footage from a security street camera shown in court that showed jurors Kurtz did not attack Orlando Police Officer Adam Gruler.

TVNL Comment: This is the "feedom" that Americans believe the troops protect by murdering foreigners on the other side of the planet.
