Everything But Shot.

The untold stories of the FPD.

In Frederick, there are two polarizing experiences with the Frederick Police Department. Some would say that from their experience, Frederick police have been nothing but gracious. And from the popular consensus, the county police department is flourishing, both in the task force and community. However, if one looks closely, cracks can be seen. There are underground tales of FPD shared among many that don’t see the light. This is one.



Frederick resident Jason Childs was pulled over by Frederick police last month for failing to stop at the white line. Childs recorded the encounter and was asked to step out of the car. In the video, police called the K-9 unit to search the vehicle. Childs was asking the officer why he had to step out of the vehicle, to which the officer could not answer. The officer pulled Childs out of the car and threatened to have the K-9 bite Childs for failure to comply.



No we weren’t shot, we were just reminded that we could be. It’s a blessing to say we made it, isn’t it? In the comment section of the video, many Frederick residents, former and current, had similar stories of their own about FPD stops. We’ve seen situations escalate quickly warped into seconds of violence and confusion resulting in severe injury and death. We expect those who are obligated to make split second decisions be effectively trained and emotionally intelligent. We expect law enforcement to de-escalate civilians, not the other way around. In previous encounters, Jason had been stopped a minimum of ten times — and nothing was found. So we ask, to what end? Are we to assume that some of us are not being targeted?
There are so many stories in the shadows like these within the community. It’s time we tell them.

The Frederick Fair Fight

Kiki Wilson - Oct 28, 2019

Two African-American young men were asking for a dollar to purchase more fair tickets and ride more rides. Upon approaching John Weed and asking him for $1, Weed became aggressive, called the young men racial slurs, and spit on the young men. Weed and the young men proceeded to step out of line. The video showed Weed and one of the African-American young men, both with fists up, encircled by onlookers recording, preparing to engage in a physical altercation. The young man struck and spit on Weed, and Weed fell to the ground. Upon being transported for medical attention, Weed succumbed to his injuries.

  1. Supreme court ruling says that if an officer orders you out of the car, you must comply. He keeps saying he knows his rights, but it seems like he doesn’t.

    • You must have a reason…what was the reason?
      There was none…
      This sounds similar to when a person is arrested with the only charge being resisting arrest.
      Also the Supreme Court Does not trump the Bill of Rights that all officers take an oath to protect and defend.
      Lastly who did this man harm?
      Were there any victims to his supposed crime spree?
      No victim No Crime….What the cops are doing is justifying their presence while at the same time funding it by doing what they did do this young man.

      I can see had it been 1775 you would be supporting the king and his redcoats over your fellow americans

      • No, they do not need to give a reason to order you out of the car. They do need a reason to pull you over, and a reason was given in this case according to this article. (failing to stop at the white line).

        All I’m saying is that according to the law, if police order you out of the car, you must comply. I’m not giving an opinion on whether that’s right or wrong. I’m just saying that’s what the law is.

        This article above, along with many others all say that they don’t need to give a specific reason for ordering you out of the car.

        • Police receive their power from the people.
          If I cannot order someone out of their car (that would be a crime)
          Then how can the people confer that authority to the police?
          They cannot.
          What you do not understand is that whatever the police can do arrest murders, criminals so to can the people…what the people cannot do neither can the police (like shoot someone in the back, beat cuffed humans or stop humans in their daily life…etc….etc, but if you think police can do any old thing and say it is law you would have been in favor with the Kriminalpolizei in National Socialist Germany or any other order obeying state sanctioned en_FORCE_ment agent in any other tyrannical state.
