As others have said, we didn't see what happened before he was pulled over so it's difficult to side either way.
Sounds like a kid who was trying to be a punk and an officer who was on a bit of a power trip. Common stuff.
The cop definitely had an attitude, but then again, in his mind this kid on the bike tried to run from him. Whether or not that is the truth does not matter, the cop is going to act in the way he feels. That is just being human, can't fault him for that.
Respect is a two way street.
Respect is not a 2 way street. Children are supposed to respect adults, bot the other way around. Law officers, fire fighters, military, bosses......anybody that is in a position of authority deserves respect. I bet anybody who tries to act like a smart ass or tough guy to a cop will beg for that same cop when he gets innocently shot in a drive by shooting. I bet that kid wouldnt talk to that cop if the cop was writing a report about his bike being stolen.
Granted, cops are not always right, and there is nothing wrong with debating there correctness, but it can be done with respect.
I have gotten off of many of tickets, in my camaro, where my driving privileges should have been taken away indefinitely on the spot, but because I was respectful to the cop I didn't get any tickets, or tickets for much lesser charges. I NEVER heard of anybody being let off because they argued with a cop and proved the cop wrong.
The biker reacted to the way he was approached that is my own 2 cents
As did the cop.
But again, we have no idea what words were exchanged before the camera started rolling.
That is what cracks me up about videos like this, and people calling others heros.
We have NO IDEA what happened earlier, the kid could be totally right. The cop could be power tripping, but how do we know if the kid or the cop was the first one to raise their voice.
