Video: Citizen Pulls Cop Over For Reckless Driving! posted 04/17/2015, 12:06 PM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Resistance]


In this hilarious video posted to YouTube by Adam Bocanegra, the young man pulls over a police officer for reckless driving!

"The officer was flying down a 35 mile an hour construction zone at 65 with no emergency lights or sirens switching lanes rapidly without signaling and he had a headlight out… So I pulled him over myself," Bocanegra told Cop Block.

"But don’t worry I gave him a warning this time! LOL!"

The unnamed Pinellas County, Florida sheriff's deputy is seen refusing to identify himself and tries to wiggle out of the situation by accusing Bocanegra of speeding in order to catch him speeding, but Bocanegra stands his ground and the deputy backs down and drives away like a coward!

The video actually managed to make the news on a local ABC affiliate. They asked the sheriff's department about it but they refused to ID the deputy in question!

One of the great ironies in American policing is that because of these highly controversial events that have been documented, there's a perception that the profession is somehow out of control or failing in its responsibilities to engage in fair and impartial policing. That is of great concern. We cannot be believed if we don't take decisive actions when our officers are clearly wrong.

US missiles are able to get on their way before the enemy’s missiles can reach the US to destroy ours.
