Denver Cops Make ABC Reporter Their B*tch

8/27/2008 8:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When a cop tells you to move, you probably should move.

Instead, the man in this video -- an ABC News producer in Denver for the convention -- told the officer, "Hold on." Not a smart move.

The cop didn't take too kindly to that and took it upon himself to move the producer himself. After the cop pushed him into the street, he then told the producer, Asa Eslocker, he was blocking traffic. According to ABC News, things eventually got heated and Eslocker was arrested and charged with trespass, interference and failure to follow a lawful order.

It's really simple. If a cop asks you to move, you move. How hard is that?

I'm curious what led up to this event, however a cop pushing someone into the street without even looking to see if there was oncoming traffic is dangerous. In addition, why single out the reporter and not the cameraman? Also, why is the officer choking the reporter when the reporter is no threat considering there are numerous officers around? This looks like a clear violation on the officers part and someone needs to be disciplined if not fired.

Police suck. That fatass policeman totally pushed him into the street. Most police are uneducated, power-hungry idiots. He should sue.

Once again, the staff writers at TMZ have no idea how to write or use spell check. After the cop pushed him the street doesn't even make sence. Try proof reading before you put it up on the site. It is funny that they told him he was blocking traffic.

After reading a couple of blogs on this incident, there is more that will come out. These oinkers were just hired bullies, albeit hired bullies with badges and guns and clubs. Too bad we didn't have an opposition party that would, like, protect us from those oinkers...

And now back to Hope versus Surge

Most policeman are policeman because they're too stupid to be anything else. That bloated PD guy pushed that reported right into traffic. Idiot.

BARACK THE VOTE    

He was on PUBLIC PROPERTY and the cop pushed him into danger/into the street 'cause he is a prick. Denver Police are infamously bad. The reporter can and should sue. The holding him by the throat, everything. TOTAL police brutality. That was unjustified. I'm glad they caught it on tape. That obese cop needs to be punished severely.

Hey Clint of the Mountain, before you rag on someone's spelling, check your own! Sence? I believe you mean "sense"

And is it just me, or does the officer putting the handcuffs on seem to have a cigar?

PS - if the police told the dude to move, dude should move - no respect
