    When an officer issues a request, it's for his own safety, and yours. Comply with the request and leave it to the courts to decide who was wrong and who was right.

    Don't goad a police officer.

    I don't believe the cop didn't know it was a camera. I hope he gets what he deserves. I am on LE side, but not this.

    Never make a decision based on one side of a video. I don't know what the officer saw. I don't know what happened leading up to the confrontation. I don't know who the man with the camera is and why he's being so uncooperative with police.

    I do know that he refused a lawful request from a police officer and that police officer took steps to protect himself,

    It may turn out that the officer was in the wrong or it may turn out the officer did what was right in the situation. That is not for me to decide based on the limited evidence presented. It's up to the courts to make based on a full and open account of the facts of the case.

    You're right, but it looks bad. Perhaps there will be court.

    I testify in court fairly regularly. There is usually a pile of evidence on the table relating to the guilt of the accused. The defense will often say that evidence is misleading or inconclusive. The decision on whether the evidence proves guilt or innocence will often depend on which side is more believable to the court.

    I've seen more than a couple of cases that look like a slam dunk go down in flames because of a lack of confidence in evidence or witness testimony.
