Here’s a positive video for a change!
A guy is taking video outside a “law enforcement facility.” This kind of thing is absolutely legal, but AGWs take extreme umbrage as they perceive it as an affront to their Authority. One such AGW shows up and begins to lie and threaten the man with arrest.
The lie being that it is illegal to take video of a “law enforcement facility” from outside the facility – on public ground. The AGW seems unable to understand the difference. Or more likely, knows it perfectly well but doesn’t care because his Authority has been affronted.
He then demands ID – illegal, given no crime has been committed – but the AGW makes up a crime (trespassing) and uses that threat to extort ID from the man.
At the critical moment, two more AGWs arrive and actually take the man’s side. The ID-demanding AGW is steaming so severely, you can almost hear the rivets popping off.
So, kudos to the other AGWs who de-escalated the situation, treated the citizen with the respect due him.
If the system emphasized peace-keeping rather than law enforcing, guys like these would be the rule rather than the exception.
