Jeremy Marks "Attempted Lynching" Case - Page 1 - News - Los Angeles - LA Weekly

The first thing to understand is that Jeremy Marks touched no one during his "attempted lynching" of LAUSD campus police officer Erin Robles.

The second is that Marks' weapon was the camera in his cell phone.

The third is that Officer Robles' own actions helped turn an exceedingly minor wrongdoing a student smoking at a bus stop into a state prison case.

What the hell? So the guy with the phone is in jail but the guy who was smoking and pushed up against the bus was not charged? How does that work? And they wonder why people hate cops!

....and beating and pepper spraying someone smoking is fine? The proper response should be "Dude, smoking's not allowed there. Put it out."

Sometimes I want to punch and pepper spray people who smoke in non-smoking areas. I want to feel bad for the kid, but my inner person is fist-pumping.

The kid up against the bus sure looks like a nice fella . I bet the Marks kid will just move it along next time.

I hope he doesn't. If everyone who sees this sort of thing simply walks on by then it allows it to continue. The truth will come out and he will be cleared.

Allows what to continue? Dealing accordingly with an underage and uncooperative kid smoking, giving an officer a hard time, and being physically resistant? So do you think Mark's feels it was worth it to hang around the scene instead of quietly leaving and going about his own business? He had nothing to gain by sticking around.

^^^ Exactly. The last thing you ever want to do is make an officer feel unsafe or threatened, whether you're 100% guilty of breaking the law or 100% innocent. While I do feel the punishment given to Marks is too severe, his presence alone in this scenario added to the tension of the situation and the officer's discomfort and was completely avoidable for him.

Truer words are rarely spoken.

I love it when people think that they can mitigate charges by expressing to the officer that they "know their rights" and/or acting uncooperative. You have very little power during a traffic stop or any interaction with an officer for that matter. Your best bet is to always keep your cool despite how unjust they're acting.

If you're truly dedicated toward playing the system then I would suggest manipulation (haha). I recall a time in school when I was dumb and carried weed everywhere. Like any 17yr old kid I was eventually pulled over for something minor and the cop smelled bud. Naturally, they ransacked my car, found the bag, and began asking questions. Despite the fact that I was ignorant for carrying s*it around with me, I was completely familiar with the repercussions of marijuana possession in CA: a misdemeanor...but still something that could make life annoying for awhile as a minor. Instead of giving the generic teenager response of "that isn't mine", I admitted that it was and continued to act extremely nervous while asking the cop "how long am I going to go to jail?". The eyes of the officer seriously lit up and he gave me some answer like "WELL, I HAVEN'T FIGURED THAT OUT YET." I continued to feed in to the guys ego by saying my school council would kick me out, my career would be ruined, and any other BS I could conjure while I had his attention.

To make a long story short the cop ended up making me dump the bud out in a sewer drain and wrote me a fix-it ticket for a cracked windshield - nothing else. I've used a similar strategy in all interactions I've ever had with law enforcement and its worked beautifully every-single-time.
