An officer asking why one is pulled over seems to be a way to get a person to admit wrong doing. The officer could simply tell the person why.

nothing new, had the same experience with an officer back in 2005 in oregon, during arrest they kept asking questions about what happened, i kept politely telling them "i observe my right to remain silent" they kept repeating questions like they didnt hear me, id repeat my statement, then they started telling me it was obstruction of justice to not answer their questions, i disagreed and argued a little then repeated my statement, they then told me they would include a resisting arrest charge because of my refusal to answer their questions, i stated i have not and am not resisting i am merely remaining silent,
resisting arrest was charged, i did tell my public defender what happened, i even mentioned it to the judge, he convicted of resisting arrest anyway, they didnt give a # about my side of the story they never care about the common man, judges and public defenders always believe the polices word over yours.

I understand and still believe in my statement.
We should all strive to be courteous and professional to each other. Something that was sorely lacking by both sides in that video.
And in another post I stated that I think he overstepped his authority in arresting her.
I never said the cop in the right here. Only that her behavior escalated the situation.
