FIVE Farmington Police Execute Man Because ONE Cop Yells Gun - Unjustified Excessive Force
* (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) *
Police in Farmington, Utah, released body camera footage Wednesday that captured the barrage of gunfire which killed a 25-year-old man during a traffic stop last week.
Chase Allan was pulled over by Farmington police on March 1 at around 3:20 p.m. near a post office after an officer spotted an illegal license plate — a placard with a flag — on Allan's blue BMW, Farmington police Chief Eric Johnsen said
Johnsen told reporters that officers started to shoot after they saw Allan reach down, but also said that it is unclear exactly what happened in those brief seconds, because the body camera's view is unclear.
An image taken from police body camera shows police officers aiming at the car of 25-year-old Chase Allan. Allan was killed by police during a traffic stop on March 1, 2023.
The footage — a compilation video of five body-worn police cameras and a single dashboard camera — shows a police car following Allan's BMW into a parking lot. The officer parks behind Allan's car, walks over to it and taps on the driver's window. Allan cracks open the window while holding a cellphone.
The officer and Allan go back and forth about why he was pulled over, before the officer tells Allan he is "detained and not free to leave." He then continues to ask for identification. Allan can be heard citing what he claims are legal arguments for his refusal to provide one.
More arguing ensues before Allan hands the officer a passport. The officer then orders Allan to step out of the vehicle. At this point, video shows other officers have arrived at the scene.
Allan is seen refusing to step out of the car. He is still wearing his seatbelt and holding his cellphone.
The bodycam footage then stops and highlights what police allege is a "holster on Mr. Allan's hip." The holster is "flexing upward," as seen through the driver's window, police said.
Allan, who is wearing a khaki coat and a trucker hat, still refuses to step out when another officer warns him that if he doesn't comply, "we're going to break the window and pull you out."
Allan is then seen transferring his cellphone from his left hand to his right hand as an officer opens the driver's door. The police video then stops to highlight what it claims is Allan's right hand moving toward the holster.
As another officer wearing a beanie leans into the front seat and tries to get Allan, one of the officers yells "gun! gun! gun!"
The police officer slams the door shut and five officers are seeing drawing their guns and rapidly firing several rounds at the BMW. An officer then yells "cease fire," and the shooting stops.
The officers pull Allan's body out of the car. The footage again stops to highlight an "empty" holster on his hip. The video then shows a gun on the floor partially visible under the mat of the driver's seat.
The five officers involved in the shooting have not been identified.
Allan's family has accused the police of "brutal murder," saying they have been "stonewalled" by the department, according to a statement released to local media last week. Allan's family said he was "studying law the last few years and was a patriot doing what he could to defend the people's freedom and liberty in his community," according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Four of the five officers have been with Farmington police for between seven and eight months, and the fifth officer is a 12-year veteran of the department, Johnsen said. The status of the officers was not clear, but Johnsen said he was down 20% of his force and thanked other police departments from helping with daily operations.
"It's a tragic ending to what started out as an everyday traffic stop," Johnsen said.
Farmington, Utah — On March 1, 2023, at approximately 3:22pm, a Farmington Police officer attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle which had an illegitimate license plate. The driver of the vehicle pulled into a parking stall at the US Post Office located at 145 East State Street. Body-worn camera shows that the driver rolled the window of the vehicle down only a few inches and refused to provide identification or cooperate with the officer in any way. The driver asserted his independence from the laws of the land as well as his belief that he was not required to provide information to the officer, nor was he required to cooperate. The initial officer called for assistance and continued efforts to provide the driver with information and options, but to no avail. A supervisor, and two officers, one with a trainee assigned to him, responded to assist. The driver was ultimately identified as 25-year-old Chase Allan.
