Bottom line is this officer was WAY out of line, and broke the law. Where's HIS respect for his badge and department?
The officer is in trouble, but is claiming that he didn't know he was being recorded. Because his actions would somehow be justified if he weren't recorded. He's also lying. He knew damn well he was being recorded by the kid. At the end of the video he asks if he's being recorded, and says he "better not see himself on You ..." I'm assuming You ... is YouTube.
Hotair has more.
Then there is the police officer who dumped a quadriplegic on the floor out of his wheelchair. Bad day for cops I guess.
