What other reason is there to post this other than that?


The reason to post it has nothing to do with "hate". It has to do with a little forgotten thing known as "accountability". You see, once upon a time Police were expected to uphold the laws AND live by them as well. It was part of a grander idea known as leading by example.

You see, Police today will not hesitate to ticket you, me, or John and Jane Q. Public for parking a motorized vehicle on the sidewalk. Weather that vehicle is a motorcycle, car, go cart of scooter. They will ticket you, and you will pay that ticket or face possible jail time, further fines, or even a suspension of your drivers license.

So you are suggesting that expecting Police to live by the same laws they are sworn to uphold somehow is equivalent to hate? How do you make such a leap in logic? To just dismiss the point outright as hate is a very very weak argument.


Nice argument saying it's a weak argument. Kinda suspicious a 12 year old video tapes himself walking around.


A) It was a weak argument.

B) Have you never picked up a cell phone? They all have video cameras. I do not think this kid was walking around video taping himself. He began taping as he asked the Officer for his badge number. Frankly, if a 5 year old or 80 year old is planning to ask a Police Officer for his or her badge number in the context of a misdeed or violation of the law, you had darn well better video tape it that encounter simply as a matter of your own safety. It's pretty sad you can not understand this simple idea considering this 12 year old understands it.

Listen to the very first thing the cop says when the boy starts speaking to him.
I've listened to it several times and it honestly sounds like he says "F*** you" to the kid.
Can anyone else hear him say this or isolate this part of the video to see exactly what the cop says?

By the way, it would be a good idea for that cop to say off the soda and start drinking more water. He could spare to lose a few pounds.

I am still waiting for someone too post the law saying he did something illegal. Right now it's all speculation. We know nothing else of what happened. What if he was called to the store? Nothing came out of it and he just got a drink on the way out?

City of Las Vegas Parking Enforcement

City of Las Vegas Parking Enforcement officers are tasked with enforcing local traffic laws, ensuring adequate and appropriate parking availability in commercial districts and quality of life within our residential areas. This specialized enforcement unit provides service to our Las Vegas community seven days per week, responding to approximately 500 calls for assistance each month. Calls for assistance primarily occur within residential areas, frequently reporting abandoned vehicles and automobiles blocking the sidewalk or parked facing the wrong direction.

Did you know it is unsafe and illegal to:

Park facing traffic;
Block a sidewalk;
Park any vehicle on the street longer than 72 hours;
Double park or angle park;
Park any vehicle on the street that does not display a current registration;
Park within 15 feet of a fire hydrant;
Repair a vehicle on the street (other than emergency repairs, such as a flat tire);
Use the street to park boats, trailers, recreational vehicles or large commercial vehicles?

The city of Las Vegas is committed to keeping our neighborhoods free of unsafe and illegally parked vehicles. Routine enforcement and abatement efforts will ensure our neighborhoods remain safe and a source of pride for all of us. To report a problem in your area, please contact Parking Enforcement directly at 229-6444.

This is from February 2011, so this cop should be well aware of these laws since it's 2013.

My 6 year old respects the police. We even talked with 2 officers today and my son knows that they are the guys that risk their lives to keep their communities safe.



Does your 6 year old also know that some of these guys will crack his skull and possibly shoot him in the back for nothing if he gets in there way?

My father was a cop, so i know there are good cops. But the bad one's abuse the law to serve their own twisted agenda's and in the process peoples lives get ruined or worse.... And there is far too much of this going on today.

So be a good parent and teach your children that cops are just people, both good and bad...

I happen to know that there are some very sick and violent guys out there that become cops just to hurt people.

That being said, the badge alone should never be seen as a symbol of good.

Hopefully you read that also. One chapter from any book doesn't give you the whole story. I was just speculating what else could have happened. You should speculate why a kid is parked behind a liquor store with his camera ready. How he doesn't seem surprised to find a motorcycle there? How he knows the cop is walking out? How when cameras usually record for longer than a minute and a half this is all we get?

And you should speculate on what was in the LEOs mind that he thought he could circumvent the law that everyone else has to obey. Arrogance perhaps?

You could have saved some credibility but your argumentative pride got in the way and now are resorting to all sorts of strawman arguments. Grasping at straws trying to save face....fail!

the point that the child was making was that the cop was breaking the law , if you or i had parked on the pavement don't you think that the cop would have booked you .

Kind of like your straw man arguments for supporting this kid and his behavior off a 90 second video. Last time I checked the law said "blocking a sidewalk". Prove to me he was blocking anything and then you can try to citizen's arrest him and make him pay his $100 (maybe) non moving violation.

-LOL. The "Cops can do no wrong crowd...."

I see this every week. Police being 'above the law" they are supposed to enforce.

EDIT: Maybe this is why the "love" for Police has diminished. We are tired of it, tired of the excuses and the double standard.

Calling out the Cops....like you think it's always a good thing. It makes you feel good about a 12 year old asking a cop a bunch of useless questions.

The cop looks like he is just getting a drink. It looks sunny and if its a recent video it's probably pretty hot where ever he is. Yes, its probably illegal to park on the sidewalk but last time I checked he wasn't hurting anyone. He was probably there for 5 minutes max. Just another video that will get more publicity for what is it because people like you are questioning everything police officers do like there is some sort of conspiracy.


my, aren't you defensive,
you should take a lesson from this officer, who though dismissive
[and thus disrespectful],
possessed enough self confidence to not "feel threatened" by a 12 year old.

truly a rarity these days.

I agree this is good but its dangerous. Its good to teach your kid to question authority.

Its bad because if this kid gets over 18 and smart mouths a cop, the cop can just make up charges and send him to jail for the night. Cops like to make examples out of physically harmless people that don't pose a threat, I.E., smartmouths.

Right now its good since the kid is a juvenile.

(1) No person shall drive any vehicle other than by human power upon a bicycle path, sidewalk ….

(3) This section does not apply to motorized wheelchairs. A violation of this section is a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation as provided in chapter 318.


That is Florida Law and I am betting it is the same through many states!

What's Good for the Goose is not good for the Gander...Meaning I have the badge I enforce the rules as I apply them!

This is exactly the problem. I live in Chicago. There's some stop signs, most around the main highway through the city, that can get really backed up. Around 10 years ago, the cops started passing all the cars waiting by going up on the right, like someone would do if they were turning, but then just go straight and merge into traffic. After watching this, a lot of people started doing it. It's just what people do when they're in a hurry. A couple years ago, I started seeing some cops go through red lights at night when there's no cross traffic. Was just waiting until I found regular people following in their footsteps. Didn't take to long.

"Do as I say, not as I do" does not work. Everyone looks to these people's behavior as to what is acceptable under the law, in our society. This goes for all authority figures. We just see the silly things police do a lot more often than, say, the mayor.

I agree, but considering this kid is already very well mannered and speaks intelligently at his age now, he'll be even better when he gets older.

Again there is no law, Federal or State, that says a cop has to identify him/herself. It is only required when pressing charges or questionings in some cases. Again this is affecting two people, the officer and the punk. That is 2 out of 7000000000. I find it funny people are getting upset over a possible parking violation and my opinion on this.


You are misguided, but not 100% incorrect only because you specified a State. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has a law on the books requiring that a police officer carry an identification card and present it upon request.

Hopefully the camera and audio will be on at that time. Otherwise cop will stuff and cuff due to the respect the cop "deserves". I agree the boy is in good shape now.

You sure do got a huge hardon for johnny law. Yeah man the cop is just getting a drink -- what about the thousands of citizens daily get a ticket & fine for parking illegally or stop in a no parking zone to do some minor task or run into the store for something to drink on a hot day? I'd like to see YOU park your motorcycle on the curb/walkway infront of a business and kindly explain to the officer that you're a big fan and it's no big deal because it's just a quick stop and you're leaving. LOL, also completely ignore his requests to show identification and i'd like to see how well that works out for you chief. Hypocrisy and double standards are abundant here i see
