A Cook County sheriff’s deputy who kept referring to his more than two decades of law enforcement experience did his best to intimidate a citizen from recording him, even to the point of pulling out his handcuffs and ordering the man to turn around.
But when the man and his female companion insisted on knowing what law was being broken, the deputy started spouting out lies.
“You cannot record a police officer in the services of his duty, this is a court order, ok, so turn it off,” said the deputy, who remains unidentified at this point.
But that law no longer exists in Illinois.
However, the deputy apparently knew he was making it up as he went along because he didn’t follow through on his threat of arrest, even though the video lasted more than five minutes.
