I was a witness to the whole incident and I know for a fact that all of the officers statements are lies. I'm sorry but I feared for my life as I was sitting at the red light next to them watching this guy point a gun at this man. You never know he could have opened fire at everyone at the red light. There is no reason to pull on gun on anyone. Birmingham cops should be ashamed of themselves. This is a great example of why cops in general feel they can do whatever they want because well who wouldn't when you know you can get away with anything. This whole story the attorney is trying to come up with is sickening. There are several witnesses to this incident. I hope this cop gets what he deserves. It's sad to think that the people that are suppose to be protecting us are the ones we really need protection from.

one cop does something stupid and all of Birminghams Police should be ashamed of themselves? Kindof an over reaction. This one cop should be ashamed, not the whole force. As for the getting away with anything because he is a cop, well, he does have 3 charges on him don't he? Doesn't seem like he got away from anything. Its lawyers job to paint a story as bull, they do it everyday in courts for divorces, and crimes. Stop trashing all cops and all law enforcement, and just say that this guy is an idiot. I don't feel like I need protection from the police, I am glad they are there. I have found idiots in all lines of work and they are usually the minority, but the majority gets a black eye because of the actions of the idiot.
