I flagged it, and I disagree with the sentiment of the OP. It might do some good for people to read through some of this.
What happened while that video was cut? It seemed like everything was settled down....the rude a-hole public servant with the badge and shades talked down to the girl, everything seemed ok, then all the sudden she's being cuffed and put in the paddywagon. No surprise I guess, but did something else happen there?
My lord, what a dick! I'm just glad I live in a country where we have the freedom to blow bubbles.edit on 24-6-2011 by greenWeenie because: (no reason given)

Why should I respect police? Why do you believe you should have authority. If this government is for the people and by the people, and the people pay their taxes, shouldnt you be the ones respecting us? Arent we your boss? Dont we quote sign your checks?
- We, the People or the community, give them the authority. You answered your own question.
Your mentality as a police officer is why I dont respect you or the job you do. You think because you get a shiny badge and a gun, I should automatically respect you.
- Respect is a trait. If you give it, you will generally recieve it.
You should be helping common folk out. If you see me doing something wrong or unsafe, instead of exercising what you call "authority" you should help a citizen out by pointing him in the right direction... 99 out of 100 citizens would be thankful and remain lawful.
-I have never been arrested, but have been escorted home quite a few times. I never gave them any lip either. Oh, and 99 out of 100 are probably thankful, but are not members of ATS.
You are a tool of law. Not the law. The law is dictated by government and hence the people. Your job is to keep me safe, not catch me doing something wrong.
- So, now you want your very own Police Officer to watch over you? Are you going to pay his/her salary?
Police of now are nothing but bully tax collectors.
- I'm stunned, I have nothing to say to that remark. Really?

Very well said. My hats off to you.
I have a feeling that those who defend the Police here are from small Towns, whereas those who disparage are from Cities.
There is a difference.
