A vigilant citizen with a camera has done a perfect job of filming the hypocritical standard of which cops frequently adhere.
The man saw an officer driving recklessly down Route 101 near Los Angeles, so he began filming the incident and followed the officer all the way to work.
It appeared that there was no emergency after all and the cop was flying down the road, at high speeds, and failing to use turn signals, to simply get to work; something that we, the citizen, would be fined or even shot for.
When the vigilant citizen confronts the officer about his reckless driving he is left speechless.
This type of proactive accountability is inspiring to say the least. Maybe one day the tables will turn and cops might feel the same nervousness that the citizen feels from cops, when they look into their rear view mirrors and see a citizen with a video camera keeping them accountable.
We’ve already seen how filming cops can lead to immediate results with the case of truck driver, Brian Miner and his awesome job of holding an Illinois State Trooper accountable.
Now, for another great example of citizens holding cops accountable by filming them.
