BRENTWOOD, Md. -

Fox 5 has obtained surveillance video of a February 3rd incident involving a Prince George's County police officer that seems to dispute his story about why his gun discharged.

A Cottage City 19-year-old spent nearly 4 months in jail after Corporal Donald Taylor claimed Ryan Dorm assaulted him and the gun went off as Taylor struggled with him. The surveillance video is from a business on Perry Street near Rhode Island Avenue in the Brentwood area. Attorney Jimmy Bell, who represents Dorm, says the video shows Taylor out-and-out "lied" when he wrote up a report supporting assault charges against his client.

The incident started when Dorm and a friend say they went to the "Lowest Price" gas station convenience store late that night to buy snacks. Dorm says his friend was wearing a ski mask because it was cold, but two police officers thought he looked suspicious and were going to rob the store. Ryan says he wanted to avoid any trouble, so he left.. But he says Taylor and a second officer followed him. The video shows Dorm being approached from behind, then smacked in the head with a gun. The video shows the flash from the gun as Dorm was being struck.

Taylor has been indicted and faces a trial in November. Bell has filed a $10 million dollar civil lawsuit in the case.

Two extremely obvious points:
1) the cop should not have lied.
2) The whole story is not being represented here.

I agree. But you never lie on a report is far and beyond the most important.

Cop just lost one of the hardest jobs to lose.

I'm curious as to why he got cold feet after reaching the gas station when you claim you were just going to buy snacks. Me thinks his friend with the ski mask was looking to do more than buy skittles.

He didn't know there was a security camera recording what happened. He thought he could get away with it. He did for quite a while, too.

I'm not sure why the cop felt he had to lie. I didn't see him do anything wrong in the video. I have to assume that the officer was telling the guy to get on the ground, and the guy didn't cooperate.

I think the officer gets fired, but I don't know that the guy gets a dime. He was about to rob the convenience store and got pistol whipped. Sounds like he got off easy to me.

Huh?

If the cop wanted to stop him, he should have brought his tazer, or just tackled him.

Pistol whipping is okay?

The pig lied because he knew he fucked up.

What was the cops original story and why would he have to lie to anyone about what really happened, unless the cop knew he had done something wrong?

It's pretty fucking ignorant to go into a convenience store at night with a ski mask, and expect people to believe a story that you were just there to buy some fuckin snacks? I mean were they just higher and dumber than fuck at the time?

As someone who worked in a convenience\liquor store for several years I will say that if someone came in with a ski mask on the first thing I did was tell them to take it off when they hit the door with my hand on my firearm while doing so. Seeing as the kid who got popped was carrying a sack or some sort it does lend itself to a possible robbery but if they didn't do anything it's rather hard to justify whacking him upside the head with a pistol for nothing more than looking suspicous.

I am guessing as the story states the kid left because he didn't want any trouble that they saw the cops or got cold feet and tried to bail.

Oh i agree about the cop. The fact that he lied about what had happened only proves that he was trying to cover his ass for the excessive force he used.

09-04-2012, 08:13 PM
I almost blew the head off of a guy I went to school with when he came into the store with a mask (bandana) over his face on halloween. We had a sign up that said no masks allowed on and all I saw was a guy walk by the window and duck down real quick with a blue bandana on his face, when he hit the door my firearm was drawn and I was screaming at him to hit the floor and take the mask off. He was just trying to pull a joke on me but he almost ended up losing his life over it.

Point is, cold or not, when you enter a convenience store, especially late at night, the first thing you need to do is make a move to remove the mask, otherwise you could wind up shot.

The cop is an idiot, as is the case with many cops out there. I don't hate cops but some of the people they get to do that job have no business being on the force in the first place. I personally believe that just like with any other job when you need people you bend the hiring process a little and say "Oh well that's not so bad." Or "We can work around that." It shows a complete lack of judgement on the city's part considering these guys are given polygraph tests and psychiatric evaluations. Is there a "No Officer Left Behind" program that was made as well?

Yep. White kids can walk into a convenience store at night in a ski mask carrying an empty pillowcase and turn around and leave when they see a cop, and nobody would think twice.

The cop fucked up when he lied, but the dude deserved worse than a pistol whipping.

It sounded like the commentary stated that police grabbed his friend but this guy tried to walk away. I would suspect the police were giving orders to get on the ground and this guy (carrying the pillowcase or bag) had second thoughts about their plan and decided to engage in passive resistance. The bottom line is that if police are giving orders and you don't obey.......then you are resisting and will be treated as a potential threat. Clearly, a 10 second video clip does not tell the entire story. The accidental discharge was unfortunate and the aggressor and media are trying to take the focus off of the fact that the police most likely just thwarted a robbery. More often than not those who are about to commit a robbery are armed in some fashion and police have to consider all potential threats until they know otherwise.

Why didn't he use a taser or just try to tackle him?
The kid wasn't hostile, so there was no reason for the pig to respond that violently.

And you are leaving out one important fact: THE COP LIED. So it's obvious that he knew he fucked up.
