Body Cam Footage Shows Cop Abusing 69-Year-Old Veteran


‘Lower your voice or you’re going to jail!’ — This police officer has been fired after body cam footage revealed him abusing a 69-year-old Florida veteran.
Officer Johan Mulero: Lower your voice or you’re going to jail! Allan Kidd: Listen to this guy, are you believing this? Police bodycam footage caught this cop bullying a senior citizen. Officer Johan Mulero: [Shoves Kidd to the ground] Sit down. Sit down. Do you understand that? When I tell you to do something, you do it. Allan Kidd: Yes, all right. You’re on a power trip, is that what it is? Officer Johan Mulero: No, I need you to listen. That’s what’s up. Officer Johan Mulero, then 32, made this ‘unlawful arrest’ in 2017. Allan Kidd: I’m just standing on the street corner, talking to this guy I just met, and all of a sudden you’re pushing me down and being real physical with me. Officer Johan Mulero: Yeah. You know why? Allan Kidd: No, I don’t know why. Officer Johan Mulero: Lower your voice. Lower your voice. Officer Johan Mulero: Then 69-year-old Allan Kidd is a veteran who was a military police officer. Officer Johan Mulero: Do you have ID on you, sir? Allan Kidd: Yes, sir. I sure do. I don’t understand why you’re doing this, why you’re pushing me around. Officer Johan Mulero: Because I don’t like people testing me. Allan Kidd: I don’t like f*cking nazis either, ok? [Officer throws Kidd onto the ground] Allan Kidd: Are you done? Can I show you my ID? Officer Johan Mulero: Give me your arm. Allan Kidd: Can I show you my ID? [...] Allan Kidd: I’ve done nothing wrong. Officer Johan Mulero: Stop talking! Allan Kidd: What? [Kidd is escorted into police car] Kidd spent two days in jail for ‘resisting an officer without violence.’ Officer Johan Mulero: When you walk up to an officer and you get that close to an officer, and it’s not good. Why? Because now you’re in my personal space. So I am telling you to back up. Allan Kidd: So it’s ok for you — Officer Johan Mulero: And when you don’t back up — Allan Kidd: — to get in my personal space? Officer Johan Mulero: ’Cause when I give you an order — Allan Kidd: Because you’re on a power trip. Officer Johan Mulero: Because when I give you an order and you don’t follow it, that’s what happens. I told you to back up and you didn’t. I told you to back up again or I’m gonna sit you down and you didn’t. So I sat you down. That’s how it works. Allan Kidd: Is that how it works? Officer Johan Mulero: Yes. Mulero was fired after the full body cam video surfaced a year later since the arrest ‘lacked any probable cause & therefore any legal basis.’ Allan Kidd: You’re on a power trip, is that what it is? DeLand Police say they will now review every arrest of this charge. The police chief said Mulero underwent the de-escalation trainings required of all officers, but failed to use the skills he had learned.
