Video: Seattle Man Calls 911 on Officer

December 29, 2011  | 

VIDEO: 911 Call at Vehicle Stop

In the latest Seattle Police video, a man calls 911 to tell dispatchers he's the victim of an "illegal stop by an officer."

A Seattle Police officer pulled over Amanuel Gebreselassie for speeding shortly after midnight on Aug. 17, 2010 in Seattle's Chinatown-International district. Gebreselassie, who the officer said was "extremely verbally abusive," called 911 and told a dispatcher he wanted to make sure he was "a real officer."

The call was cut short after other responding officers pulled Gebreselassie out of the car, when he began to resist.

The attorney representing Gebreselassie is calling for Chief John Diaz to resign, reports KOMO.

"My client is an absolute idiot and its proven on tape so I think you should resgin Chief." Is that how the attorney said it? It should be.

This attorney refers to the dirty laundry in the police department. Well, he represents the dirty laundry of society. Ambulance Chaser!

And as for the profanity, I jokingly say, "Get off your G%D D@#n phone, shut the F*&k up, stop resisting you Son of a B%^&H, and get out of that piece of SH&T car!!

You guys said commented on this correctly; however let’s not forget the 2 TV pundits who reported this as an actual story of concern to the community, and as if it had merit. They should be kicked in the balls for wasting our time, and pimping their agendas!

I'm an LEO in the Seattle area. I refuse to watch any news agency from Seattle. Every segment has a report about how SPD has done this or that wrong (most of which I, as an LEO, see nothing wrong with). I feel for the officers dedicating their time and lives to work in Seattle. The media should question why the mayor runs the dept. instead of the Chief.

Some people will do anything to get out of a ticket. Pay the #L*$* ticket and shut up. At least this wasn't the guy I tried to ask why he had a baseball bat and he asked if I was the CIA. His problems were greater than this guys.

its funny how every single one of your comments side with the police, just because you are police yourself, how stupid does that make you all? its either left or right, you devils think like monkeys.
