Clown world man, lemme tell ya.
A man seen chanting “white power” at Black Lives Matter protestors last month was arrested by Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputies for impersonating an LAPD officer.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement saying Daniel Sohn, 36, was wearing a long-sleeved shirt with an “LAPD” logo and adorned with several police patches as they found him sleeping outside a West Hollywood business that doesn’t allow 24-hour parking. As deputies checked on the man early Friday morning, they noticed he was wearing publicly available, non-department-issued LAPD clothing and later identifed him as the man who appeared in a racist January viral video chanting “white power” at BLM protestors. Arrest records described Sohn as an Asian man in his mid-30s.
So this is where things get clownish and confusing.
If this man was wearing clothing adorned with the LAPD logo, that was available commercially, why is he in trouble? Departments make money off of licensing. They let companies put their logo on clothes that are sold to LARPers to make a few extra bucks.
L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy Joanna Warren told KTLA-TV Sohn admitted he consistently pretends to be a police officer in order to gain respect and attention. Los Angeles officials are asking for more victims or those with additional information to step forward after arresting him for impersonating a police officer.
I’m not sure what the law says on this. But I don’t think you can get arrested for walking around in those military pajamas that you’ve picked up at the Army Surplus store – even though most people would agree that it’s a goofy thing to do.
Sohn could be seen laughing and gesturing at BLM protesters while replying “white power” to several inquiries about whether he was truly a police officer. He was wearing a black “LAPD” long-sleeved shirt with several police patches.
Melina Abdullah, a co-founder of Los Angeles’ Black Lives Matter chapter, confirmed to KTLA-TV Sohn had antagonized protesters and pretended to be a member of the LAPD outside of the gym.
Asians confirmed best White Supremacists yet again!
Again, I’m not sure if the Asian is in trouble for yelling at BLM or for wearing that shirt.
The apparel worn by the individual, specifically the T-shirt with LAPD insignia, is not Department issued and is accessible to the public. We will be working with our Entertainment Trademark Unit to ensure violations of our trademark on apparel are addressed.”
It almost seems like the police are acknowledging that this is all their fault.
Asian White Supremacists who LARP as LAPD officers…
Not bad, clown world. Not bad.
2019 is off to a strong start. Can’t wait to see what else is in store for us.
