Ex-Leo here JA.. You cite the person for having a loud muffler. By cite I mean issue a ticket. Not arrest and threaten.
If I arrested a kid every time they were being a belligerent brat I would have no time for anything else.
Ignorance is bliss. Good luck in life DaTrool. JA!!
I can agree with you that a citation should be sufficient, but much like the referee who only sees the retaliation and not the initial cheap shot, we only have this boy's video and not the whole story. I'd like to see the police dashcam for this stop, because I imagine little innocent Billy here ain't so innocent or respectful.
Also, regardless of what this officer says, where did this culture of "disobey everything a cop says" start? You have rights, but until someone disrespects you, be respectful. Most of these police-stop videos are instigated by nervous people anxious to start a problem. I'm tired of it. Real police brutality should be the focus of the outrage, not supporting some bratty kid who didn't even get his rights violated.
