the drug sniffing dog reveal was interesting. but otherwise this is just a good demonstration of how to get harassed by cops, by being an uncooperative idiot.
If the boy had rolled down his window, the officer would have stuck his face into the vehicle and exclaimed "I smell marijuana" and all this stuff would have happened anyway. It's pretty much how these things are for men between the ages of 18-25 in the US.
Yeah, I don't why people don't understand that if you just do whatever the cops tell you to, whether you're legally obligated to or not, you don't have to waste time learning your constitutional rights. That's what lawyers are for! This guy must be some kind of civil rights nerd or something.
Fight the power, SOVRAN MAN!
Also, talk to a lawyer. Nothing illegal happened here. Unconstitutional? I think so, but the Supreme Court has ruled otherwise. Thanks Ronald Reagan!
He was incorrect about having to provide his license. If you are on a public road, you have consented to produce your license as well as proof of insurance upon request.
A lot of people (idiots) think their car is private property even while on public roads.
I'm calling the cops with an anonymous tip for drugs at your house, Simillion.
You better cooperate and let them in.
Classic POETV. If you suggest the civilian in any cop video may be deliberately antagonistic for the sake of his YouTube channel, you're a bootlicker. And George Orwell and some other shit.
Better still, accuse him of pedophilia. All the evidence need to put Sim or Spike away for life can be obtained just from looking at the server logs resulting from the use of this site. No kiddin'.
No one is excusing this boys antagonistic attitude. But let me ask you, if this kind of thing happens to you two or three times, are you going to be patient and helpful that fourth time? Or a little cranky....
What proof is there that this to this guy frequently enough that he's just FED UP?
This cop's an asshole. This kid is antagonistic. Everyone's PC is full of child porn.
I am long past being indignant towards the absolutely predictable natural behavior of easily frightened animals. I just want to know if we have an "ape law" tag.
Doesn't look like we do yet, but only a matter of time before that gets linked I'm sure.

If this boy was carrying his freedom dodecahedron, none of this would have happened!

Every cop I've ever met has been courteous, polite, and understanding. I'm sorry you guys haven't had similar experiences.
The fatter and older ones always seem to be the worst.
Thinking back, every nice cop I talked to was young fit guy.
...except in Brooklyn where two started harassing me for kneeling down to pet a cat through a chain fence next to a store at night. I guess they thought I was casing the place? 5 minute questioning what I was doing and 5 minutes of me repeating I was just petting a goddamn cat.
"You Superman or something? You have xray vision? How'd you see a cat?"
Couldn't think of any reply for that so I just sat in silence for another minute before they let me go.
I'll estimate that I've encountered probably twenty-five cops in my lifetime. A few of them have been very pleasant. One pulled me over about three weeks ago because he thought my registration had expired (it had and I had renewed, but I hadn't put the sticker on yet). Once he realized his mistake, he couldn't have been any more polite and apologetic about it.
I've had exactly one unpleasant encounter with a cop. When I was twenty/twenty-one, my friends and I would get drunk, clear out the dining room in the row home I shared with my buddy, scatter some futon mattresses and pillows, and hold a professional wrestling event. Clearly our ruckus could be felt throughout the other row homes and a neighbor called the cops. The cop who showed up was an incredible dickhead. Honestly, if I were a cop and I walked into a bunch of stupid kids dressed like mid-80's WWE wrestlers, hitting each other with Styrofoam, it would make my day.
Oh, and here's my absolute best encounter with a cop anywhere, any time. I was on tour and one of our guitar players was driving like a real dickhead through Chicago. We were pretty rightfully pulled over (especially since we were pulling a trailer). Then this happened:
I've only had one bad experience with a cop, over 20 years ago, and have gotten along very well with all my local ones, even the rookie that tried to be all tough at the Speedway coffee machine and I was like "dude, lol."
It isn't about me.
Also, it was a cop that told me cops were easily frightened animals.
A previous encounter with the police came to mind recently...
Years ago, I was driving through the back country in Arizona, heading to Tucson on vacation. Got pulled over at dusk, driving 30 in a 25mph zone in the middle of nowhere. Cop comes up to the vehicle, I give him my creds, he asks "Do you have any weapons in the car?" I say "No!". Then I chuckle, and ask the cop "Have you ever had anyone answer yes to that question?" He sez "Oh yes, I have". I say "So what did you do?" "Nothing, it's legal so long as you tell me". I say "So what are you looking for?" He says "Marijuana".
Fast forward to the present day. I'm reading a news story. Boy about my age at the time, get's pulled over in the same county in AZ I did. Police ask the same question, boy sez "sure. Couple Tek-9s, shotgun, extra clips, body armor". No drugs. So after a short time checking his creds, the officer waves him on. He then drives into town, arrives at the town meeting, and brutally shoots Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in the face, along with several of her constituents.

Growing up in a Detroit suburb, I spent my teens and early 20's training MMA at a pretty big gym. It goes without saying a lot of the students were cops, and virtually all of them were funny, friendly, and easygoing. But whenever the subject of excessive force would come up, there'd be this big sigh, and it would immediately be followed by a story explaining why cops always seem on edge. One was attacked in a crack house and had to wrestle for his life for his gun. Another had to shoot a deaf man with a rake when he raised it over his head and sprinted at them (This was actually a semi-big case at the time, and his trial was on Court TV or something). And a third relayed a conversation he had with someone who actually thought you could shoot a knife out of an attacker's hand like goddamn Virtua Cop.
Almost every traffic cop I've encountered has been awesome. They usually either let me off or give the minimum punishment possible. Sometimes they'll write me a ticket, pause for a moment, and then say "You know what? Don't worry about it. Just get it fixed."
