I hate seeing these videos, if you don't wanna be treated like that, don't be a douche to cops. I hear it all the time where people try and entice cops while recording/filming them saying "I have my rights!" Then they are all bent out of shape cause they get lit up with a taser for not cooperating with them. I just laugh at those stories and think the prick probably deserved it...

Tony,
He doesn't have to cooperate and to suggest he's a 'prick that deserves tasing' for not giving up his constitutional right is terrifying to me.

There are a lot of things you don't "have" to do but you should. Being polite to people doesn't take much effort. He was being confrontational, which is his constitutional right. But even though it is a right, doesn't make it "right".

At no time was he impolite, he was uncooperative. Uncooperative and impolite are not synonymous. Asserting/protective/exercising you constitutional right(s) does not make one 'confrontational'.

Moving on- Why should he cooperate?
Speaking of "right"- is it "right" for him to be stopped and questioned without suspicion of a crime being committed?

If they knock on your door will you allow them to rummage through your wife's panty drawer? Careful! You don't want to be confrontational... Do the "right" thing.

You don't have to cooperate when you get pulled over? Good luck pulling that card if you ever come to Texas!

Some of these responses are pretty frightening. The driver was not rude or confrontational. The officer certainly was. He was non compliant because he has the right to be. Just because cops think they can violate the 4th amendment doesn't make it right.

In case y'all missed it we live in a police state because people just went along. If you want to go along, then so be it. But don't bash a guy that chooses to stand up forbid rights.

Ya know, Rosa Parks could have just sat in the back of the bus. She didn't have to be non-compliant. But she chose to stand up and helped to change the direction of the country.

It was a DUI stop, possibly "no refusal weekend." Driving at night and refusing to roll down your window, I would assume your drunk and not wanting the officer to be able to smell your breath. Under that suspicion they could ask him to get out of the car and do a sobriety test, which at first he refused to get out of the car.. All this kid had to do was be courteous and roll his window down, they prob woulda waved him through. Instead he got his video camera and tried to be as difficult as possible without crossing any lines and getting his @$$ beat or lit up. I've seen others that have crossed that line to the point where when they get lit up your saying, "yea that was deserved"

It wasn't a DUI stop. It was a checkpoint. It's still a violation of the 4th amendment. All they had to say is that we are detaining you based on your refusal. No intimidation necessary. The detainment is a clearly defined line where the relationship between officer and citizen changes. Instead of doing that they resort to intimidation which is status quo for LEO these days. Non compliance should never be a reason to get tazed.

Freedom and liberty shouldn't take a day off because its a holiday weekend.

It's pretty clear how the state has been able to take control of the people by fear.

They'll never need to confiscate firearms, they've already been successful in confiscating your minds.
