A Vermont teen took to her social media page to make some serious accusations against the Police after she had a run in with the local Department. She made such damaging accusations that could ruin the lives of the officers involved in the encounter with her and even do damage to the reputation of the local police department in the Vermont county.
As a reply, the department released the body cam footage from the run in with the girl that clearly contradicts her allegations. The outrage generated by the false accusations put against the Burlington Police department by the local girl from many social media users could not have been foreseen by her. She posted her allegations of misconduct and rough handling against the Officers on her Facebook page the day after her encounter, but she most definitely had no idea the police had a dash cam recording of everything that went on that night.
A miscalculation that earned her ridicule from millions of internet users that have seen the released video of how her encounter with her friends and the cops happened. Her false claims might even result in her serving real jail time. What really happened is all unbelievable after watching the video and her Facebook post.
Logan Huysman, an eighteen-year-old girl from Vermont, was found sleeping heavily with a group of friends in a car. Police officers came close to the car to check on the girls and see their condition, they were all deep asleep and difficult to arouse from their sleep, they all seemed disoriented and in disarray when they woke up.
This prompted the officers to suspect they were under the influence of drug or alcohol; the footage showed the officers spent ninety minutes with the girls during which Huysman was arrested for being abusive and uncooperative with the officers.
She was later on released when her parents came, but she posted the following on her Facebook page:
“Just so you know, police brutality is REAL in Vermont. Simply because you have the privilege of a badge does not give you the right to lay your hands on anyone. Officer Ngyuen and officer Lippa did not only waste their time questioning three girls that were just taking a nap, but they also assaulted me for “being uncooperative” as they shoved me in their car FOR ABSOLUTELY NO REASON. I literally blew zeros, but they felt inclined to arrest, assault and throw me in the back of their car. Burlington, Police Department has nothing better to do with their time, so I would suggest they get a new profession. Moreover, these cops touched me inappropriately just to get me into their car. I consider that as sexual assault especially when it comes from the “authorities.” Like who the heck are they protecting? In what way does this sound alright to anyone?”
The charges this young lady brought against the Police Department on her social media page was so inflammatory it provoked the BPD Chief, Brandon Del Pozo to release some minutes of the recordings from the body cam to counter Miss Logan’s accusations.
The footage from the body cam painted a whole different picture from what she posted on her page; it showed Huysman as being obnoxious, rude and noncompliant with the officer’s requests and instructions.
Since the video has been made available to the public, a lot of people have used the same social media to condemn the act and show support for the local Police Department.
Solidarity statements like the following were made by the people:
“She’s claiming sexual assault. She deserves to get more time in jail for her false accusations.”- Awob.
“She has totally lost control. Wow, I’m glad they had body cams.”- Jebra Michael
“The officers acted remarkably! If she’d done same in Detroit, they would have shackled her legs to her hands after handcuffing her. These cops deserve to be praised for handling such stupid girl with patience”. – Music Man
“I still can’t believe she claimed she was assaulted sexually. Throwing such shit around is never a simple charge, she deserves to be jailed for her bogus accusations.”- Jim the Tib
“These cops were so patient like I’ve never seen. What an entitled little bitch. She must’ve made her parents proud.”- WTF Raphael.
“Assault of an officer, Disorderly conduct, drug, marijuana and alcohol possession. Good bye girl, jail time is here.”- The Don
After seeing the footage and Huysman Facebook post, many people have formed and expressed their opinions and ways on how to deter people from such later on. The act as seen by many of the internet users must be discouraged among every citizen, especially those trying to present the good work of the law enforcement in a bad light. Some suggested jail terms for culprits of such crimes like false accusations against the law men. You can share your opinions with us too.
