Forgive me if this has already been posted, there are many threads about African-Americans and their encounters with police. But I don't think this is on any of them.

That is a great video. The young man recognized he did something wrong and he got a warning and that was the end of it. If he had given the cop an attitude he probably would have gotten a ticket. If the guy had escalated the stop with anger and threats the Cop probably would have given him the smack down. I like what the young man said
"He (the cop) did his job and I did what I was supposed to do".

He had another great line.
"Ignorance has no colour"

It sucks to be pulled over and the last thing you or the cop needs is attitude.

I expect a police officer to be held to a higher standard than a Wal Mart cashier. If a cashier at Wal Mart dealt with a customer's bad attitude by cursing at them, assaulting them, threatening to kill or tase them, they would be fired and it is highly likely that they would be facing criminal charges.

For a cop that is considered normal everyday behavior in reaction to a citizen's bad attitude and/or disrespect and the apologist bootlickers just expect people to accept it.

If everyone had that attitude there would be no problem with the Police. Good video.

Lowering the entrance exam scoring to Wal-Mart cashier level isn't helping either and that's exactly what many Lefties want to happen because they think it's racist to have such a high bar set.

Taxpayers spend a lot of money getting these cops trained. Yet there is no payoff.

He must didn't see the footage of Sandra Bland getting pulled over a few weeks ago by a cop who was being a jerk and out of his character. She knew her rights and acted politely toward the cop but he still sent her to jail. All the cop needed to do is issue Sandra Bland a ticket and gone about his business. Oh noooo, he got mad over her not putting her cigarette out.

Good video but that brother need to wake up.

I agree 100%. It is time American cops got some training and stopped treating everyday encounters as if 99% of people are evil and waiting for a chance to shoot them.

the second to last thing you need is to have the offending party with an attitude of "i gets to do what i wants to do"
