First i wanna say that i respect the job that Police do, putting their lives on the line everyday to keep us safe. Most cops are very profesional in the way they conduct themselves and the way they go about putting away the bad guys. But having said that, I also wanna bring to light the way that(some) cops abuse there power. Recently i have gotten caught up watching videos on youtube of cops disregarding(law abiding) civilians constitutional rights. Example A is in this following video.
After watching this video it's pretty obvious to me that this Cop arrested Chris moore only because Chris would not give up his helmet cam, He HIMSELF was not breaking any laws and was being harrassed soley because this cop was angry at some of his fellow motorcyclist.
Second is a video of a marine in temple texas who is LEGALLY open carrying a firearm while on a 10 mile hike with his son.
In this video you can clearly hear this officer say that he is "Exempt from the law"... The officer was origionaly sent on this call because citizen's had called in concered about a man carrying an AR15 openly on his chest which is not a crime.
This third and final video is of a police officer illegally arresting a man for not showing his ID even though he was never suspected of committing a crime. Unless you are suspected of committing a crime you ARE NOT legally obligated to show ID.
This officer was eventually fired and relieved of her duties as a police officer. The thing that really bothers me about this video is her holier than thou additude towards the civilian.
Id love to hear all of the opinions on this subject.
