People like the guy in the video aren't looking for trouble, they are reminding and schooling our public servants in OUR rights and their LIMITS.
By him doing this, the cops will reacqauint themselves with the law, or learn it and will think twice about overstepping the rights of citizens open carrying, video recording and lawfully withholding ID in the future.
He was doing a public service.
That trouble could come from what he did - which was a lawful exercise of rights - just means that rights have been eroded, not tbat he was 'looking for trouble'.
Ever heard of 'beating the bounds'? Similar principle.
