** warning - language **

Driver turns tables on Accomack
deputy

ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) - A YouTube video of an Accomack County Sheriff's deputy allegedly speeding has become the talk of the Eastern Shore. The driver who videotaped the deputy later confronted him.

"I'm coming for you," the driver says on tape. "You can't run baby."

What could be considered a dangerous way t More..o prove a point has become an internet favorite.

"I was in shock that someone was stupid enough to actually do that," said Accomack resident Elizabeth Walraven.

The video, shot earlier this month, has had more than 20,000 hits. The driver films himself chasing down the deputy he believed was speeding.

I say well done to the young guy for having the balls to do such a thing, as it says there the cop was not responding to a call and should not have been speeding, i did a search for this here on ATS but couldnt find it so i decided to post it for you all
peace and love

OMG!!!! That was beautiful. Who IS this kid? I want to name my firstborn child after him, whether it's a boy or girl doesn't matter! This kid should have his own tv show after this. Love it love love it.

New rally cry for the little guy: just use your imagination. It's romper room day.

That's fantastic!!!!! I remember a series of you tube videos by a guy I think in Philadelphia (I can't recall, so if someone remembers I'd appreciate it). He went around the city and caught city employees, police, inspectors, etc. parking in no parking zones, not paying the meters, speeding, any violation and he would post it on you tube. It was hysterical, they would get so angry as he was video taping them.

I don't understand how being hypocritical is heroic. His pursuit endangered the lives of innocent people just as much as the deputies lack of respect for the posted speed limit.

The whole situation is bad judgment in my opinion.

There's so many crooked cops out there you can't stir them with a stick. I see cops racing all the time w/o lights, most like they're trying to get to the donut shop before it closes, or for a quickie with one of their girlfriends. Seriously, if some network doesn't pick up on this, then I am looking for investors to do a tv show called "COPS (Yeah you know you're scared)" -- we would become millionaires.

True I can agree with you, but I also constantly observe local law enforcement in my area constantly taking advantage of the fact they are in a squad car, from turning on lights and sirens only to not have to stop at a stop sign or red light (then turn them off immediately after they have past it) or speeding without lights or sirens. Those are also dangerous, and endanger people as well. Who do you report a police officer breaking the law to? If I call the police nothing will get done, if I write an op ed in the local paper I become a target. I enjoy that some people are taking these violations and posting them on line, perhaps if the department as a whole has some sort of embarrassement or shame brought upon them it may be enough to curtail the behavior.

That was awesome!!!
I love that kid's determination to confront the cop and not back down.

Unfortuately, the rules only apply to us little people.

Thank you for posting that it was funny!

I'd invest for that idea, it would be good TV viewing!

It's so relieving to watch the oppressors get oppressed. One thing I did one time when I saw a police car flying down the highway doing 95mph was to stay behind him about four car lengths and and fly along with him. It was great. Everyone just got out of the way and Imade some really good time. It was like having an escort service. Why did I do it? Because he was doing that speed without lights and siren. And so since he was not legally speeding in the course of his duty, I took advantage of the situation. It wasn't a planned thing either. I just reacted at how special he thought he was. I hate oppressors and those who believe that they are more privilaged than the common folk.

You can easily reverse the roles in this situation. If the videographer was the one speeding over 90 MPH, the police officer's pursuit of him is just as dangerous as disregarding the posted speed limit. Except for the fact that the police officer gets paid to give chase.

It would have been more effective if the chaser flashed his lights, as he had no siren (or so we believe).

I do agree with you however on the bad judgement of both drivers.

That kid was certifiable. You could tell by how he was saying the cop was running because he was afraid of him and how he was cussing all the time. That kid is an accident waiting to happen with his confrontational attitude and his belief that his mission against cops supersedes the public's right to safety on the highways..

LOL what a moron! Was he high? His dialogue makes it sound like he was.

It would have been better if after the guy said a dozen times "your scared s***l***" if the cop had pulled over and then beat him senseless. The cop was being VERY nice about it.

He was surprised the cop could do 90MPH? That is a Crown Vic Police Interceptor, they can easily do 140 (I know, I just bought a retired squad car and love it).

Maybe the kid had just paid his 10th ticket for going 7 miles over the hour. I'm not condoning speeding at all, just saying young guys do tend to get picked out of the crowd and hassled/ticketed more than other people. A person can only take so much, maybe he really had lost his marbles but catching this cop going wayyy faster and getting him on tape may have been the very therapy needed to get this kid back into mental health.

As a concerned citizen, what are you suppose to do if you catch a police officer breaking the law? While I agree that him chasing down the cop endangered lives, I would like to hear what an alternative might have been to this situation?

Turn the scenario around; if the cop had chased the kid for several miles doing 90-100 mph, how would the kid have turned out? Some teeth would have been left in the dirt that is for sure. I expect cops to enforce laws but the ones who break the same laws they enforce should be fired; if they do it once they'd do it again.

Ive thought about things like this for some time now.

What if someone started a civillian task force to police the police? Start videotaping, filing complaints, making a public stink about police officers abusing their power.

I do not advocate chasing the cop down like this, because, as someone said before, what do you do if you catch them?

Now, if you collect hours of footage of cops breaking laws, and make it public, there HAS to be a move made. At that point, you're actually sending a message.

Just a quick pointer.

When I was a cop, we had four codes:

Code 1 - Get there as quick as you can without lights and sirens
--Used for minor disturbances, no threat of life or limb

Code 2 - Get there as quick as you can, lights and/or siren optional
--used mostly for simple assaults or break ins

Code 3 - Get there ASAP, lights and sirens mandatory, pedal to the metal
--Only used when life or limb is threatened

Code 4 - Get there when you can
--normal everyday run of the mill calls



Most of the time you see cops turn on the lights and/or sirens to run red lights, they will be going somewhere Code 2.

It is very rare for cops to use them just to run lights. You would be surprised at the amount of people that call and complain about this . . . even if you are running code 3 and run the light, someone will complain that you were just doing it to get doughnuts, or lunch, or whatever.

Most people have no idea.

Just helping you to DENY IGNORANCE!

Good information, thanks for posting.

I have to wonder though, why do police have special rights when it comes to the roads? I was always under the impression that when a cop is moving to get somewhere and are travelling at a higher rate of speed than is legal, they are required to have their lights on.

If they don't do this, it is endangering the public, which is the OPPOSITE of the point of a police force.
