The cop, unsurprisingly, is making no sense.

Police at 3:22 "I understand you dont even want to listen to why I'm here..."

WTH is he talking about?

The citizen was listening the entire time and responded accordingly, that hes a builder.

"We've seen a lot of pre-operational planning".

WOW.

More like pre-crime or thought crimes.

And how did they even know his identity?

The cops werent rude per se but that still doesnt excuse or justify government tyranny especially when you hear the description of his so called "suspicious behavior".


Some of my favorite quotes:

"You have driven over 100 miles to harass a citizen on his front porch".

"This is frightening, this is a police state".

"We have an unconstitutional a--hole governor taking away our rights".

"I walked the Capitol as a free man".

"I will have first aid supplies... so I can help my fellow citizens when you bastards start spraying us".

"You are the problem".

"This is communism, socialism".

"I'm a free citizen, I'm not scared of you".

"We live in a police state".

"You son of a b-tches know everything probably including what I had for dinner last night".

"He's the kinda cop thats gonna cause trouble".

"He felt that he wanted to control me".

"You have to figure out what side youre gonna stand on".

"That is pure criminal garbage that sits in our state house right now".

"At some point in time you boys gotta quit doing your job and understand that your job is a constitutional officer".

I don't know, man... The police sound fishy. Like, they're not even police.

This guy feels like most of the people who will be there,and just wants his constitutional rights to be left alone.
He spoke the truth and quite well at that.

Ummm...WOW...words do not suffice...

There needs to be an analysis and thread on that one single statement...

"That's what those in uniform said when they were loading Jews into the ovens...I was just doing my job"

"I was just doing my job...as I shoved another human being into the overfull chamber...slammed the door shut on fingers...and turned on the gas"...

I was just doing my job"...

That is straight up dodgy. Those aint regular cops.


The only thing I would say is there could be a Timothy McVeigh out there. Just sayin.

I would hope by now people would relies that in the eyes of those in power see regular non governmental people as 3rd class while they are 1st class in charge.

If that had been me, that video would have been a lot shorter.

"May I see your warrant?"

"You don't have one? Well, drive safely."

Don’t talk to cops. Many videos around about why this is a bad idea.

Yeah, why is the guy even bothering. He's actually falling right into what they want him to do.

I'm sure LEO were doing the same Everytime Antifa was posting about their riots, right?

What if law enforcement/security noticed somebody acting "suspicious" and did nothing... then later it turns out to be a real criminal planning an attack? Then when it came out later that law enforcement noticed the guy and did nothing, you'd all be complaining that they should have followed up and interviewed the guy.

Just sayin...

In a perfect world every cop who ever uttered the phrase, "I am just doing my job" would be summarily dropped in a volcano.

What exactly was the thing he did? Knocked on some columns?

That should be an automatic 5 years with no chance of parole.

He sounds like John goodman. Having said that if someone walked around knocking on columns and took pictures i could see why they just wanted to talk to him. I dont really think it was a big deal most likely one of the two is a profiler and they just wanted to get a read on him

That isn't an original comment here. That, or something virtually identical to it has been used as an analogy since ww2 during the Nuremberg war crimes trials.

I think that was the point - its the weakest argument ever and its used incessantly.

Playing devil's advocate for a minute - I've seen a lot of Youtube videos where the cops supposedly went too far but in almost every single one of them, the person they were interacting with was passive-aggressively antagonizing them and messing around with them and calling them out left and right and just generally trying to cause them to do things they probably wouldn't ordinarily do if the person was more cooperative.

Obviously the cops have to approach every situation as if the person they are dealing with is hiding something. Because frankly, most criminals are sociopaths and pathological liars and you can ask them a question and they will lie to you without blinking.

Now of course I don't like the thought of every day life turning into an interrogation with cops everywhere bothering people for no real reason. But on the other hand, you have the fact that when bad things happen, the government gets blamed for what it didn't do to prevent it every time. People are like "You could have at least asked that guy a couple of questions".

Anyway, those Youtube videos often piss me off because I have little doubt the person with the camera probably did things they knew would attract police attention and get them pulled over. It's not right.

very enlightening video. Good to know we have good cops in the capitol police. the man being interviewed was dead right about the attitude of the other cop. i hope those 2 had a long talk on their way back to Richmond. Their attitude makes all the difference in many situations.
