The following video has begun to make the Internet rounds and has already gone viral on in the last 24 hours.

Very little specific information about this incident can be found, just a few posts about what is happening in the video:


The unidentified Cotati, Calif., man and woman tell the police from inside their home that “there is no domestic violence, just an argument with yelling.”

They also inform police that they have one child in the house and one playing outside.

When the police ask the couple “why” they are not coming out, the man inside tells police: “Because we don’t live in a police state, sir. Martial law has not been established in this country.”

The man insists that police do not have a warrant or probable cause. Seconds later, the police tell the people inside to get down on the floor.

Police then break down the door and enter armed.

The woman is tased first and screams, then the man is tased and the recording ends.

There also appears to be a third unidentified male in the home.
