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.

George Floyd In Frederick…

Kiki Wilson - June 25, 2020

According to the Frederick Police' Use of Force report, the department noted "no troubling trends based on any particular characteristic of race, sex, or ethnicity." However, the numbers show gender and racial disparities exist. In 2019, men were subjected to use of force more than women and black men experienced the most force overall.

"There are certain people who have the magic and certain people who don’t. Just keep going. You’re gonna go through the darkness and confusion and you’re gonna figure out what it is. You can’t rush it. You just have to know you have it. You need to find you and you need to be able to make it work." - Rona Mensah

  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.
