  • Thank God that officer was willing to dismiss everything and get him a bottle of water! Im sure that water will make the whole situation worth it. And now with the free water, no charges will be put against the officer.

  • Police in US are comedian?

  • Someone who puts there life on the line for there country just to return home for the local police force to treat our solders

  • Good. This police officer is an embarrassment to those good cops out there trying to serve their communities.

  • Quick i need other cops to make a tiktok video talking about this......wait what?? They only make videos for Lebron?? Oh ok

  • Why adding "black and lation" adjective to the title. Not relevant and obviously misleading the message of the video.

  • If these terrorists weren't wearing badges, they would have faced charges of extortion, use of a firearm during the comission of a violent crime and assault in no time.

  • cs-tv.org/tv/video-0th1vIrzHRI.html

  • Much respect. Sue them

  • Why do some American cops have superiority complex. Take the guns away from them and they will be just nobody and they know that. American police education must be very basic. Our police are not perfect but they are not trigger happy like the Americans. Crazy!!!

  • unacceptable even they don't respect the uniform

  • Thats why Ali didnt want to go to war for u.s.a.

  • Smart Army

  • This video is the process of making Rambo.

  • Doesn’t matter black. We have to stop with the black thing. That same thing happened to me in broad daylight leaving my high school. I’ll never forget the Troopers name. SG Burke. Nj state police. This was 1996 and my mother just bought me a brand new car. The Troopers were standing in the street literally 5 feet from my car. I looked left and I looked right because they were right there. Then as I was about to go. The Trooper told me to pull over. He was to my left standing and I was in my car window down thats how close we were. I litterally puked maybe 15 feet to the right and stopped. I asked why I was being pulled over after he asked for Dl ins reg. He said I have no front plate on my car. He was correct from his view point however when I pulled to the right and he had to walk up I’m sure he could see the TEMPORARY TAG. I said to him your right I don’t have a plate because it’s a new car then said the temp tag is in the back window. He could see that obviously but he instead continued with his stop. Dl ins and reg he said again. I was confused and said you pulled me over for not having a front plate but I have a valid temp on the car so what is the problem. Anyway I’m not black and this was a Sgt standing infront of a high school at 2 pm when the kids get out looking to harass kids. This is the high school in my town that is the richest mostly white high school kids. Mostly white means like probably 90 percent or higher white kids. This cop was a total loser and I’ll never forget his name. Sgt Burke Nj state troopers 1996. Total tool.

  • Only in the U. S , and this Will never stop until people do something

  • Fucken pigs

  • President Biden over to you

  • Police Officers were right. This guy desobyed the cops all the time. If he had got out of the vehicle and followed instructions nothing like that had happened. Wearing uniforms do not means he was not a criminals. Officers mistake? They didn´t chrage him at the end.

  • Привет . 89182487537 Watsap

  • Damn man that’s bold as black man no more matter what good you do it forever going to be a target on there backs

  • We don't need law enforcement we the people got this ain't that right

    • Or if we are going have them then they need learn how to handle and deal with people which signs show they obviously don't and it isn't in just one state it's more than 1

  • Police Officers Are Out~Of~Order Now. This Is Clear Visual Evidence Against An Officer Of US. Army. Cowardly Cops. Hopefully This Will Stop Before More Shootings ..... Good , Honest People Who Are Assaulted By Police Officers Whose Behaviour Is Criminal Towards Innocent Victims ... Prosecute.
