Well done that man for pulling a Cop over.
It seems that they think their perfect and clever when they do a crime when their not.
If that doesn't work they try something else on you.
Be careful what you wish for.
Don't let the idiots bring you down and beat you with experience. I mean the Cops.

Nothing much more to say, I didn't know if to laugh or fear for the people on the road or the driver who wouldn't let the cop go,lol. I also think I heard the most cuss words in 8 minutes I ever have.

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.

Police dont have extra powers, there not allowed to go through red lights and there not allowed to speed, police are not above the law.
However because of the job they do people turn a blind eye and allow it, just as there is no law to get out of the way of a police car/ambulance with lights/sirens on it is just courtasy.
If they caused an accident because they were speeding to an emergency they can still be done just as would to a member of the public.
Plenty of police, ambulances, emergency organ/blood transfusion cars/motor bikes drivers have been taken to court for speeding, i remember a person got there license removed for speeding when they were taking a organ that was needed asap for an operation to save a life.
The video is ok however, much better without the voice over for the first 6 odd minutes...its like gordan ramsey.
P.S in Britain you would be arrested under anti terror laws for filming a police officer, very stupid.
