  • Really weird that we have check in balances in our government but the police are allowed to investigate themselves. Like. What?

  • A person in the Army when on duty/ in uniform coming from duty is of higher rank than a police officer. According to the suppliment act the person in the Army cannot be arrested. Also if the police officer refuses to obey the person in the Army then he must be punished by execution. Yes the policeman in this video has to be executed according to law called the suppliment act. Which also gives authority to security officers. How is the police officer alive as a matter of fact, how was he employed without education.

  • Please lock up both officers, fire them both for not looking for tags in the window, please allow the Lieutenant to spray massive amounts of pepper spray in both of these officers face.

  • As a former Democrat of 25 yrs, and an intelligent person with my Master's degree in Engineering from Stanford, I came to recognize that the greatest threat facing America today is not Donald Trump and it's not Covid 19. By far, the greatest threat facing America today is the unfettered spread of the Regressive Left, with all of the ROT, the DECAY, the INSANITY, the WEAKNESS, and the DESTRUCTION that come with it. This is why I left this evil and dangerous party!

Secondly, we all know the firing won’t make any difference - the idiot will simply get hired by the PD in the next county and go about perpetuating the same diabolical acts with even more vengeance, vehemence and bigotry!!!

  • Another thing that I noticed other than police incompetence and brutality, is how military officers get treated better. They suddenly assumed he was lower enlisted and treated him as such.I was in the military and officers are treated better than lower enlisted. If he was a specialist or below, I don’t think they would have become so apologetic afterwards to him. He probably would have got arrested for resisting and in trouble with his chain of command.

  • This happened to me in Las Vegas after leaving work...2 weeks after I bought a GMC Envoy with 20" Chrome rims. Same situation. Temp tags in the window. While driving up LV Blvd, the police jumped 2 lines over the moment I passed them and I knew they were about to stop me because they slowed down allowing me to pass.

  • First off let's get away from the stupid political correctness they are not Latin they're not from Spain they're from Mexico originally they're Mexican Mexican American that said. What we have here unfortunately is enough bad Caucasian cops that are making all of the other cops look bad these are the reason that they want to defund all cops. But you do not throw out the baby with the bathwater hopefully most of you will be intelligent enough to know what that means but I have my doubts.
