I believe the cops were way out of line in this case. From the footage, you can see that there were no questions asked; just the police acting before assessing the situation. This is a prime example of the low quality police that are out there as well as a good example of complacency in the force. Proper training and supervision could have prevented events like this from happening. Whoever the main officer was should receive some sort of reprimand for the way he treated the team before and after the incident. Once the property owner stated that they were allowed to be there, the officer Gould have backed down but instead, he threatened them to get off the property. If an officer treated me like that, there would definitely be a complaint and possibly a law suit coming from my end. People like this give the police and military a bad name.
I agree

This show is fake! The "Chicago Police" are actually actors from the A&E show Paranormal Cops. See....https://www.facebook.co m/profile.php?id=704723585
AND, when you write something about it o the American Digger page, they erase it.

I was raised near Chicago and later became employed there. This is typical Of Chicago cops. What they lack for intelligence they compensate with foul language and MISSPLACED authority. This cop has been working the south side to long. For one he and others cuffed before questions. He saw the cameras and started his acting career. The reason I am going to say this I hope Is not taken as racist. The south side is dangerous and has been for decades. Worse since Robert Taylor Housing was condemned. The south side is mainly Black occupied. White cops treat them bad so most south side cops are Black. Just an fyi I'm white. That's why he was acting. If no camera crew he would have maybe just said hey what's goin on? When he treated the home owner so polite uh, doesn't happen on the south side. He says the home owner wants you off the property, the owner says maybe it's best. Ya, cause if he said let them dig the cops would pay another visit in a few days to do him harm. That doughnut eater saw a few moment of fame. Wish show would have gone for harrassment. I welcome any Chicago south sider to email me or even CPD should they have a question or yell at me for sounding racist or anything at [email protected]
Stay out of the Southside lol!

What is terrible is that they do not undertake excavations using archaeological techniques. Artefacts out of context tell us nothing of the past. They are nothing but treasure hunters no better than grave robbers

I am a retired commercial salvage diver under contract at the time, to the U.S. NAVY. My precise sonar equipment was being used to locate lost WW2 warplanes lost in Lake Michigan off Chicago.(These warplanes such as the SBD Douglas Dauntless were being trained to land on a converted freighter with a flat top runway installed on top, to mimic an aircraft carrier!). Many were lost in Lake Michigan during practice landings. They are in pristine condition, due to the cold, fresh water. I could still read the fueling directions on the wing!!! One of these SBDs, I located right among the piles of debris of the Great Chicago Fire. To this day, I have a silver spoon with the family name inscribed in the handle... a beautiful piece! But I digress...

We pulled into the fancy waterfront district for dinner and drinks. A crew member was at the helm, and coming in a little hot (too fast) with all the docked boats. The dock master saw this and yelled out to Peter Theo to slow down! A perfectly justified request. Instead this crew member yells back to the dock master: "Blow me!!!" Well... The dock master calls the cops. Some short but burly mean looking cop is screaming at Peter Theo as I walked up. The crew member waved me away, to keep out of it! And for good reason...as the next thing I hear is the cop telling Peter... And I Quote: " I'd just as soon take you around the corner, and beat the fuc* out of you." Thank God it was late afternoon and not nighttime! The cop's face was beet red and he looked literally ready to explode. And if this highly heated response is from coming up a boat channel too fast with a small boat... THEN WHAT WOULD BE A REAL WORLD RESPONSE TO A SERIOUS INCIDENT ????
