Thank God there are people like this driver that are sick of "cops" thinking they can brake the law our tax dollars are paying them to enforce. Don't get me wrong, plenty of good cops, but there are many that should have never passed the psych exam.

There should be an elite law force that ONLY tickets these kinds of cops.

The cameraman should be fixed before he can breed. Too bad the deputy didn't blast him with a taser and put a bullet through the punk's camera so you anarchists could really have something to whine about.

I can't believe you people are calling him a hero. A hero? Really? For harassing the police? Sure, the cop was speeding. Sure, he shouldn't have been. So this guy chases the cop out into the middle of nowhere, where he wouldn't have been able to respond to his calls. He chased him way off his normal patrol route. Who knows who he put in danger by doing that?

Speeding isn't the worst crime in the world. Chasing people around to harass them is a fricking crime, pure and simple. Chasing an on-duty cop just to confront him - while cussing up a storm like a degenerate punk on a 'roid rage - is a worse crime. And I don't care what awful thing the person you're harassing did, you just aren't supposed to behave like that in society.

Or do two wrongs make a right, now?

Watch the video again, people. That's not some folk hero out for justice. Just listen to him talk, he's ready to flip out like he's going to kill the cop if he catches him. He's not a hero, he's a danger to society and everyone around him. It's blatantly obvious to anyone without a chip on their shoulder that this was just some reckless, idiotic hoodlum who has a problem with authority.

here's another example of citizens standing up to what they considered stepping over the line.

Those comments are quite over-dramatic by you.

So what, the kid attempted a citizens arrest. You sound way more angry than that kid.

DUDE!!! Was that kids engine light on!! LMAO!!

I would not be pushing that piece to 100mph, especially when it needs maintenance!

Whether it was right or not, that's another thing. Great for confronting rouge enforcement letting them know they too are not above the law; but breaking the law to do so and possibly endangering other lives - not a good idea.

He did not attempt a citizen's arrest. He chased a guy around with a camera to harass him. Yes, I'm mad, because of all these people who think that the law is null and void just because the police are "evil" (in this case, because they speed.) But I am not cursing my lungs out, saying people are afraid, doing 90 down the freeway just to carry out some personal vendetta against the police.

For the record, copping out by shouting "citizen's arrest" in this case is bull-crap. In the state of Virginia where this took place, you can only make a citizen's arrest for a felony offense. Speeding is not a felony. Making a false citizen's arrest is an extremely serious crime, and could lead to a charge of false imprisonment.

I really wish I understood where some of you people got the idea that just because there are police who break the law, it's magically okay for everyone else to break the law also.

The whole situation is bad judgment in my opinion.

Uh huh, and under that logic one can find the argument to never do anything about any crime ever, because the solution might endanger someone else. That's life today, and that is what cops are supposed to do. Catch criminals and protect our rights. These days they can't be bothered to do such a thing so eventually we have to turn the tables on them. There's always someone that has to say something negative about a small justice in a sea of injustice, someone always has to find a reason why doing the right thing is wrong, or not worth the trouble..

I reject that argument. In all it's forms.

wow, nice video.

the cop was right i'm sorry to say. the highway was empty and everyone speeds sometimes. so what. cops don't get tickets.

the cop is probably an idiot.

the only reason i could possibly imagine that the cop didn't pull the guy over and throw hsi ass in jail was because the cop thought that the man following him was someone important. or knew someone important like a mayor or senator. the cop turned out to be stupid so it worked ok.

the person driving is a retard. i'm sorry but you just don't do that. he got a ticket and he's pissed. understandable. but everyone knows they speed 50times mroe than they get tickets for. this guy didn't even know why he was scared. for all he knew the cop was late meeting his drug dealer at a stripper joint. the guy is lucky to have his life.

All the time that the guy was honking his horn boasting about how scared the cop was of him (probably true-I would be in that situation), I was thinking that the cop had called for backup and was continuing to drive until he had help.

Apparently he did not call for backup. Why? And if you were a cop and someone one was riding your tailgate honking their horn for miles would you turn off the main, well lit road to trap yourself in the kind of area that the cop let himself be trapped?

And yes, cop should have busted the guy. Cop would have got in trouble for speeding (maybe-if the tape ever made it through processing at the P.D. in one piece) but the guy would have been in a lot more trouble for his antics.

The cop may have been trained to drive at high speeds but he obviously wasn't trained to think or use common sense in stressful situations. For the above mentioned reasons, I think the cop was up to no good and speeding for some nefarious purpose.

The guy chasing him is a foul-mouthed moron but he's got great big brass cahones.

When the little guy gets pushed around enough in their everyday life we can expect to see more of them snapping and pulling ill-thought out stunts like this one. Glad nobody was hurt and that the dude was armed with only a camera. This could have turned out much worse.

You seem to be a fair and honest cop and I like you.

I am glad there are a few left. However, I dislike speed limits on highways. I have learned they are mostly revenue generators. Here in MI, when gas was $4+/ gal last summer, they were working to send a bill through our legislator to lower the limit back to 55. Why? Because too many had slowed down and were now driving at the limit to save fuel, which was hurting citations. I have friends in the force and they have been told to do what they can to generate revenue. Some cities here have even gone as far as lowering the duration of the yellow/amber lights at some cross-streets from a six second warning down to three in order to artificially catch red light runners.

We never had limits on highways in the early days. They don't have them in Germany and I don't believe they should have them here -- especially out west. In Germany, there are 25% fewer fatalities on the autobahn. Careless driving is another thing, but that is all together different than a steady flow of traffic at 90 or 100 mph. The truth is... cars today, for the most part, are much more efficient and safer at higher speeds than in the past. A 65 mph limit is dangerously slow, way below the 85th percentile recommended for safety. As you probably know, speed doesn't necessarily kill; it's the variation in speed that does.

Furthermore, a 65 mph limit on the interstate really slows down our economy, especially in a country physically as large as the U.S. It causes more congestion too -- as more vehicles are on the road at once. What law enforcement really should do is enforce "off highway" speed limits, such those in the city. But what we really need is a cell phone ban and a crack down on those motorists who run red lights. That would go a longways towards saving lives. Besides, it's very dangerous pulling motorist over on the highway, especially for the officer.

Just my .02

The kid was/is a total maroon. I love the way he was shaking like a leaf at the tail end of the video. 'I'm cold'. Yeah, right. He didn't know whether to crap or go blind, he was so scared . So he turned tail and shut the camera off and ran. Ha.

This kind of hits close to home with me.

We had a cop here in Charlotte NC that killed a young lady after speeding at excessive speeds without a siren.

This cop has lost his job of course, but to those who believe that " oh its ok , its no more dangerous than normal drvers" ....think again.

It took a life here, and I know its done it in many other places.

The intent was good; I can't complain about that. But the act itself was probaby one of the most mindless, dumbest things I've ever seen anyone do. He is really, really lucky that the cop wasn't an asshole.

Good for him! I don't know about you guys, but I can't stand cops who think they are above the law. I see them breaking the law on a daily basis, yet nobody holds them accountable for their actions, yet they're the ones giving us tickets. Talk about hypocrisy!! This guy should get a medal and this cop should be fired. You don't serve and protect by putting other people's lives at risk. Police officers should set a good example for others.

Thats good stuff. I saw a video a while back where a guy tricked the comes into illegally raiding a house where they suspected a drug operation was on going. Really priceless.

This is awesome and more people need to need to start getting these creeps that believe they're above the law on video. Kudos to the guy with the camera!

If a bad cop violates your rights all you have to do is follow him around for the day and record all the traffic violations on video and then go to the police station to either have your traffic violation removed or press for charges against the corrupt officer. This puts his actions on permanent record (make sure you insist it goes on the record and retain a copy) and makes it difficult for him to get a promotion or retain his/her position of 'authority'. Keep a copy of the video at home for 'insurance'.

I can't count how many times I've witnessed cops abusing their authority while on or off the job. I, personally, always make sure a cop remembers me if he abuses his position. It's the right thing to do for yourself and the next victim. All the language isn't necessary. It doesn't 'improve' your case.

Not to say cops are all bad, they have a tough job though some seem to believe the 'badge' gives them the right to do as they wish. When martial law comes around, I'm sure the people will set the record straight if the cops forget who they work for.....the people (taxpayer) not the agenda of the State. It appears many cops have become automatons of the State. This is of 'grave' concern.

Keep those videos rolling. Never leave home without it.

I was pulled over a week ago for the first time in 9 years. I asked the cops why they pulled me over. I know why, I didn't belong in the neighborhood. I went there to buy some beer on sale in a store that is known to have good deals on brew. I was driving a nice car and am a clean cut white guy that seemed out of place to the officers. I know this was the reason to pull me over though it is a violation of my rights.

I questioned the officers, asked them what they've been teaching them at the academy, mentioned how it seems their actions are evident of a police state and took their name and badge numbers.

They claimed my license plate concealed (the sunshine state) below the plate. LOL Half the cars in the state have that concealed and is no reason to pull over a driver. They also said I was in a high crime area. The ticket turned out to be $100! I went to the police station to report their violation. I spoke with the chief of police, set up an interview with the two officers involved and showed them the End Game videos and the Obama deception just for kicks and after speaking to the chief of police and informing him of my past positions of 'authority' he dismissed the ticket and the officers thanked me for the videos.

I would highly suggest forwarding the End Game and the Obama Deception videos to your local sheriffs/police office. They need to deny ignorance as well. Your lives might depend on it.

Come on people, the roads are designed to do a lot more then the posted speed limit. The speed limits are there for no other reason then a source of revenue. On the major highways everyone speeds and eveyone is driving safely. Every now and again you get the one that zips in and out of traffic but for the most part everyone is driving safe just going as fast as they feel comfortable with. Cops have no reason to pull anyone over for speeding other then to put groceries in their refrigerator.

Great post!

Interstate speed limits are purely for revenue. People are brainwashed if they think they were not built for much higher speeds. Those few who drive the limit or slightly under are the ones who are a real danger.

Every night driving home from work there was a cop that blows by me doing at least 90mph on the same stretch of 65mph highway, no sirens. It became such a regular thing that the local media picked it up. Ever since then, I haven't seen this cop (it was the same car number every time).

I used to have great respect for police officers, but as I get older I think of them anymore as young power-tripping punks. Sure, they are useful when needed, but I'm talking about the punks that have nothing better to do than pick on a law-abiding citizen driving with a burnt-out tail-light. A polite notification would suffice, but, NOOOOO! You need a ticket for that as well as a ticket for not presenting an Insurance card. Excuse me? I have insurance. Since when do I need it to prove my "innocence"? Your computer in your cruiser can tell you that I got a speeding ticket in another part of the country 8 years ago but it can't tell you that I actually have more insurance than I need despite not having the card handy? This is a pile of bovine feces. What the hell happened to "innocent until proven guilty"?

Some police departments have gone from to protect and to serve to do all you can to generate revenue for the local government. It is THESE officers I DO refer to as PIGS. The ones that actually do what they are supposed to I can still respect.

To hell with this young punk fascist idiot officer of the City of Des Moines, Iowa Police Department. You know who I'm talking about!
