Members of the Santa Ana Police Department in California may soon find themselves in severe legal trouble after surveillance footage caught them behaving inappropriately during a medical marijuana dispensary raid.
Attorney Matthew Pappas edited the footage into the video below.
Some footage shows officers dismantling the shop’s security cameras and removing the cable box. It appears that officers were not aware that they were being recorded after removing the visible surveillance equipment. Fortunately, they missed a hidden camera.
Another clip shows officers eating what appears to be marijuana edibles, and taking breaks to play darts.
The most disturbing clip reveals a female officer making a horrifying statement about an amputee patient that was in the shop at the time of the raid. The officer said,
“I was about to kick her in her fucking nub.”
Pappas is planning to file a lawsuit, which allegedly contains evidence that a “high ranking city official” is authorizing raids because of a “pecuniary interest in the operations of a lottery winning collective.” Pappas told Voice of OC,
“I’m filing a lawsuit, so [the police] can get the raw footage in discovery.”
