Two Billings police officers entered a woman’s home without a warrant, claiming they overheard an argument.
It turns out, the woman talks loud and she says there was no argument.
Video posted to Facebook by Angela Whitehead May 1 begins with one officer standing inside the door. (She says Facebook has since deleted her video but we have it posted above)
A person sitting down began recording after the officer entered.
“He can’t,” Whitehead says to the person recording.
“He can’t do that. Thank You for recording, because he can’t. You cannot come in my home.”
She turns to the camera and explains she did not give the officer permission to enter.
“We heard an argument,” the officer replies.
“We had an argument,” the man recording on the couch says.
Whitehead cuts him off.
“No. Because this is my home. And this is my property. And I’m telling you to leave my home,” she says.
The officer again explains he heard an argument.
“No you didn’t. You heard us talking loud,” the man on the couch says.
Whitehead ask the officer to leave several times, but he stands with his foot in front of the door, so Whitehead is unable to close it.
Whitehead continues telling the officer he violated her rights by not knocking on her door first.
“There’s nothing going on here, and you are violating my rights, sweetheart.”
Instead of simply leaving after it becomes apparent nothing is going on inside, the cops stand in the doorway.
The officers say they got a call about an argument.
“I don’t care what you (sic) got. Because if I hadn’t have just stepped outside to smoke a cigarette, this door would have been closed and your ass would have had to knock,” Whitehead yells, pointing at the officer still standing in front of her door, so she’s unable to close it.
She continues screaming and explains she’s scared because the cops are white and she’s black and she doesn’t know them.
Eventually, the officers decide to calmly leave, which saves them a little face because many of the cops we’ve written about in the past have escalated similar incidents, particularly when cameras are involved.
Watch the video above. Here’s the screenshot where she says Facebook must have removed her video because too many people were reporting it.
