ASU Professor Ore Appears in Court

Defense Granted Extension Due to FBI Investigation into Suspended Officer's Actions

Dr. Ore's lawyers secured an extension of her trial to allow time for the third party FBI investigation into the ASU PD Officer's use of excessive force.

One of the key issues brought to light by the news story in the video below is the fact that citizens do not have to produce identification for police in a non-driving infraction, so when Officer Farrin tells Dr. Ore in the video that "It's the law" that she must produce ID for him, the officer is either intentionally attempting to deceive Dr. Ore, or the officer does not in fact know the law.

In either case, the circumstances leading up to the officer's physical attack on Dr. Ore are indefensible. The officer clearly escalated the stop from a civil interaction to an abuse of power that resulted in a physical attack, violating the rights that all humans deserve.
