As unfortunate and criminal as the situation is that you described, you can not let it change the way you view ALL officers. Not ALL of them are bad, just like not EVERYONE who gets pulled over is bad. You have to give people enough room to hang themselves.

of course, i recognize that. However, the second i see lights, or hear sirens, or even have a bad "vibe" regarding police, that is the first image that comes to mind. So while I may not think all police are like that, I certainly entertain the possibility that the cops is there to # me over, as opposed to there to help me. As events transpire, my perspective usually changes depending on the situation, but I've been conditioned like that, to always assume the worst first.

There's been many times I've been pulled over for no reason and harassed. One was for swerving when I didn't, another was speeding when I was actaully going under the speed-limit, another was for not wearing my seatbelt, which I was, but the cop said I put it on after I saw him (I never saw him until the blue lights came on - and he would have had it on camera if it were true).
I've always simple agreed, "Yes officer, no officer, you're right office." And that's all they wanted to hear. Always let me go. You just have to feed their ego.
Brett: I don't want any problems officer.
Officer #1: You're about ready to get it. You already start your ****ing problems with your attitude. Did we have a bad night boy? Huh? Answer me or I'll lock you up for failure to imply with a police officer's commands.
Brett: Cause I'm not answering your questions about my personal business?
Officer #1: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You want me to show you? You want me to show you? You want me to lock you up to show you I'm right and you're wrong?
Brett: No I don't officer.
Officer #1: You want me to show you the ****ing law.
Brett: No, I mean I know Sean who used to work here. [A new neighbor of mine that used to work in the St. George police department]
Officer #1: Sean who? You mean my buddy, my best friend?
Brett: Yeah. He's me neighbor.
Officer #1 Okay, he's my best friend. Oh good. Why don't you go call him and tell him you came in front of Kenline and see what he says If you got lucky you'll walk away from me.
Brett: I really don't want any trouble officer.
Officer #1: What are you doin' with a camera hooked to your car seat?
Brett: I have lots of cameras in my car.
Officer #1: Why is that?
Brett: And they upload to secure sources
Officer #1: Okay. I don't really care about your secure sources. I've got one in my car. See that?
Officer #1: It's a secure source.
Officer #1: I really don't care about your camera system cause I'm about ready to tow your car. Then we can tear them all apart...
Brett: Oh well, it doesn't matter. The videos not even in here.
Officer #1: Okay, it doesn't matter, I really don't care about your video
Brett: I'm sure the news will like it.
Officer #1: I don't really care cause you're about ready to go to jail.
Brett: I don't want to go to jail officer.
Officer #1: I'm gonna show you you're about ready to.
Brett: You're right officer
Officer #1: Okay.
Brett: I'm sorry.
Officer #1: You think these security cameras -- I guarantee ya, mine and my boy mic is gonna tell a little different and your attitude.
Brett: I don't want any problems.

So Civilians cant hold a preconceived notion and treat every police encounter as if it could go down like this one, But a cop can hold a preconceived notion that all civilians are guilty until proven innocent and to be treated as such?
nice double standard.

I never said anything about telling anyone you have a camera.
Like I said search on YouTube for police brutality and you will see a number of videos. Without video evidence you've got nothing. Had this guy not had a cam rolling in his car this thread wouldn't exist.
The cop should be repremanded to a degree, but certainly shouldn't lose his job. The kid was parking in a dark parking lot at night. There's nothing wrong with the cop seeing what's up.
