Not All Cops Are Jag-Offs: Exhibit A

Submitted by: fancylad 4 years ago

Is it me or is this kid a dick? He was obviously baiting the cop here. Exercising rights or not, don"t be an a-hole.

I`m not sure I understand why a semi-automatic weapon is so less dangerous than an automatic weapon. I don`t remember any recent US massacres being carried out with automatic weapons. The rest of the world must look at this and think we are totally nuts. I know I have a constitutional right to a gun, but frankly I don`t see why I should ever need one in a civilized country.

Really? is walking around with a gun like that necessary? That`s just asking for attention. If you want to carry a weapon--fine. But don`t flaunt it like that. Jeeze, I`d be nervous around that guy too.

I`m not totally anti-gun. If I lived in the US I`d probably consider getting one, but letting dickheads like this walk the streets flaunting a big gun (I don`t care what calibre it was, or technical crap - it looked like a big killy gun.)
is bloody stupid. You really need to get some perspective on guns, if you think you need one then have one, fine. But some control would be a good idea.

Not my words. Actually the words of an exCop I know. His reason for saying it was directly related to his experience as a cop.

What is your reason for calling me names? Couldn`t think of any arguments to support your position?

Are you serious? You guys are all concerned with whether the cop was a douche or the kid was a douche, when to an outsider the CRAZY thing is that a kid can walk about the streets with a freakin loaded gun because it`s his right?! Totally ridiculous. Keep a gun in your home if you must, but over your shoulder in the street? Hmmm...

That kid didn`t know s*** about his rights. He butchered the law regarding illegal terry stops and "search and seizure." He has a fundamental misunderstanding of what the cops can do when prompted with reasonable suspicion, or what constitutes reasonable suspicion. He`s going to get somebody hurt.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Yes, the person videotaping this encounter was looking for trouble. Yes, the police officer was doing his job, and rather better than most. No, there is no law anywhere prohibiting anyone from being an ahole. The videotaper is exposing public officials both disobeying and carefully obeying the law. Kudos to him and kudos to the officer in this video.

Those two kids are clearly just a couple of tools who are trying to get their 15 mins of fame. That`s obviously not the reaction they were looking for because you can hear once the kid realizes the cop knows his sh*t and is handling the situation EXACTLY the way it should be handled (by asking to inspect the weapon to make sure it`s only semi-auto) the kid starts stumbling & mumbling over his words. They need to find a new hobby.

Everyone praising the guy who recorded the video doesn`t realize that this isn`t the first, second, third, fourth, or even fifth time he has done exactly this.

He goes out carrying a large gun (usually a hunting rifle or shotgun), waits for someone to call the cops, and then records it while making it as difficult for the police that show up. He`s a douchebag.

I wish the cops in my area were like this one. All he did was do his job, which was to make sure the public was safe. He was actually very polite to the kid. Can`t say as much for the kid.

@Huey: Yes, the U.S.A does allow citizens to carry weapons, but laws vary from state to state.

Make sure you know the laws in each state before carrying any weapon. In my state it would have been ILLEGAL for them to walk around with that gun out in the open. The state I live in only allows you to carry a weapon in public places if it is concealed and you may only carry handguns in public.

Hey, my previous comment got eaten?

Oh well: Those two were "looking for trouble" and that cop was really nice to them! At least they were polite in return at the end.

That`s how cops should be all the time, why it seems we always see the videos of them going overboard when dealing with people far less douchy then this stupid kid I can`t explain though.

Koodos to that cop, I`ll buy him a drink any day.

I realize the predominant age range of traffic to this site is 25 years of age and under. With that being said. Most people in the U.S.A. do NOT understand that an American citizen is allowed to carry a firearm, at ANY time on these lands. It IS a constitutional right that many Americans do NOT understand. I for one am very glad that there are people out there that are making these video documentaries about such rights. Neither the police or the citizen in this video are being jerks are a-holes in anwyay. They are informing people of those rights. Good for them, and good for the person posting this. No reason to insult intelligent, informative, and helpful citizens. I wish for more people to be this informed and for less people to be so criticizing of such rights in the U.S.A.. Understand your rights. Remember The Constitution.

Someone called a cop cause they saw the guy walking around with what looks to the plain eye to be an automatic submachine gun. It wasn`t. The cop double checked without seizing or confiscating anything. No problems whatsoever. The guy with the camera did seem very defensive, expecting to run into the average high-school bully with a badge, but he didn`t.

Good for those young men exercising their 2nd amendment rights! It is disturbing to me that any American would want to give up that right.

As for the cop, good job doing your... uh, job... I guess.

We should be praising the kid for for knowing how to handle the situation and for knowing his rights. Screw that cop! Those ass***les take advantage of peoples rights everyday through intimidation, etc. That kid is an example of how we all should handle cops. I am sure a lot of you are too chicken poo to do what that kid did. Reading comments like: the cop should have slammed him......are you kidding?!?! Hats off to that kid.

This dude (the recorder) is a douchebag and does this poo all of the time.

The police know about him at this point and have learned how to deal with him I`m guessing.

yeah the kids were kind of dumb, but still, this is how a cop should be. The good ones are out there, but the problem is that there are those ones that are the opposite of this guy, or even good ones like this guy who are just having a bad day.

That is a professional right there. Good job by him. This video should be played as an example of exactly how to handle this type of confrontation.

Kids were were hoping he would be a jerk and trying to egg him on but he didn`t play into it. Give that man a raise.

Telling the cop there is a better way to park his car was a huge douche move. The cop had his car there to move the traffic away from the guy if he became hostile.

Guess what kids. You`re little stunt to prove gun rights just made gun lovers look more stupid. Way to push your cause backwards.

I agree with some of the other comments made here, all police officers should act in the way that officer did.

If as in this case a citizen doesn`t understand the rights that an officer has or doesn`t understand the reasoning behind an officers actions then it is the officers duty to educate the individual, not get heavy handed and reach for their taser/firearm etc as we so often see in these videos.

This video should be used as a training video for new officers to show them the correct way to deal with a situation.

why are these guys pushing this issue? these cops are doing exactly what you would want them to do, inspecting and returning the property to the owner.

the cops are not being dicks, they are not detaining, taking them to the station or throwing them on the ground.

an officer with reasonable cause can check a firearm to make sure that it is legal...let`s not discourage them from doing this because all it does is PROVE that law abiding citizens are not breaking the law and are carrying legal weapons.

"I think that footage justifies a promotion for that officer."
No, it justifies a paycheck. Not a raise. What the cop did was nothing amazing. Any officer that can`t handle themselves in that manner should have their badges taken from them.


It`s a sad state of affairs when a cop doing as he should gets special recognition for doing his job. `oh mah gawd that cop so amazing.` No, he wasn`t. Take your rose tinted glasses off, iab.

That officer needs a promotion for dealing with those idiots. I hate people like that.

Yes it is your right to carry, but since semi-auto and fully auto look the same it is reasonable suspicion of a violation of a law.

What a little prick. Hey bung hole, people are nervous about getting shot because...HELLO...there are psychos going around just shooting people for no good reason. So you decide to exercise your right to carry, fine. But if a cop stops you and asks politely to examine your chopper just let him. Then you`ll be on your way. By gabbing on and on you`re only detaining yourself.

I`m all for packin` heat. Just use better judgement in how you go about doing it.

What a bunch of tools. Here I would actually like to see police harass these kids. Seattle police shoot John T. Williams to death for having a wood carving knife in his hand. Milton Hall is shot 46 times for holding a knife. These two twats can walk up and down a street carrying semi-auto carbines and cops ask them to join their reserve program where they would just issue them a fully automatic weapon.

Didn`t watch to the end - the kids were just being dicks.

However 10/10 to the cops for handling that perfectly. Really cool.

Lastly - what possible right or need has been taken totally out of context to still allow a prick like that to carry or even own a weapon like that and be able to carry it, loaded, in public. Damn right there have been concerned calls.

This video should be used as evidence of why the person should not be granted the right to carry a loaded weapon.

I think that officer`s conduct and method were exemplary! He was polite and knowledgeable and did his job well. Unfortunately, the same can`t always be said for all officers in all situations, but this guy demonstrated himself to be a professional and a respectable person of authority. Bravo.

It the ones who do things like this to bait and harrass the police that cause them to become jaded over time and start treating everyone in a less professional manner. This officer is an outstanding professional and the people of this community should feel a little safer from the punks taking the video.

That cop was really cool throughout the whole thing. The cameraman was very obviously a prick walking around with his weapon out, hoping to be detained so he could piss off the cop and put it online.

People tend to be very opportunistic when recording situations like this.

He didn`t seem to understand that the officer had to inspect the weapon to make sure it was not fully automatic, and that he had the authority to do so.
