On the other hand, they'd only been on the job for less than 3 years. Better to catch it now than after they've left a much longer trail of collars that can be questioned and overturned.
Both deputies had never been disciplined before. Kinda makes you wonder what led them to think this kind of conduct is warranted on American streets in the absence of reasonable suspicion, let alone probable cause.
A definite lack of integrity on the behalf of both deputies. Sounds, and looks, like they both got what they deserved.
True That Suzanne, It will give LE a black eye and just give more fuel to the Haters of LE out there, SAD.
I was going to say it isn't a primary offense, but apparently it is now. It's actually kind of eerie to read this passage from a news piece back in 2009 when it was passed:
For years, Florida lawmakers had objected to the bill because they thought it would make it easier for police to randomly pull over someone they had profiled based on race, and then use the seatbelt as an excuse.

Poor judgement to say the least. If they were wearing their seat belts then there wasn't even probable cause for the stop. Sad.
"Poor judgement" to say the least... agree, they got what they deserve!
At the very least it doesn't give me warm fuzzies regarding Seminole County's screening process.
Possible power trip or racial profiling. Who knows. And they weren't even on the force for long, something like three years. Curious what kind of career they will pursue now. And unfortunately this gives LE a black eye. Civilians see these types of stories and some start to hate cops even more.
Dashcams are a great tool for documenting violations, but can be used against you also. Anyone remember the Hollywood FL incident where the officer rear ended a car and they arrested the driver for DUI and were caught on dashcam making up the story? If true as written, they needed to go...
WTF? Did they really think the brotherhood would protect them, particularly with their own dashcam documenting the whole sordid incident? Were they on drugs?--I'm serious.
Have to bump Suzanne!! Sounds like the Sheriff did what he needed to do.
Seriously? That much force for a "Seatbelt Violation"?? And risking another LEO's safety?
What was going through their heads?!!!! what a shame. What made it even worse is that they lied about what happened. Sorry, but they got what they deserved. I"m glad the third deputy and the two guys that got pulled over didn't get hurt.
