- Every state road, every county road comes complete with a utility easement, and public easement. I am not from or at Pennsylvannia however this is pretty standard in most if not all states.
- @SHARK I admit they have a right to protest, but protesting generally is ineffective. Also, these are a bunch of old conservative men they’re trying to provoke, so I don’t think they’re going to change any minds. People driving by wont be persuaded either.
Police officer tries to stop auditor from filming a traffic stop.
Although there are several armed policeman with cameras, the one unarmed auditor is a threat because he and his camera may expose police corruption.

- 20:16 the guys own words, says: “their whole tone changed when you arrived”. That is the protection of cameras!
- 05:03 cop: “you’re just trying to find something wrong with this investigation.” Seems like a strange thing to say while trying to find something wrong with a citizen.
- She’s intentionally chatting to distract and keep the focus off the real issue of cop intimidation ! The Auditor does a great job translating the truth and holding his frame despite “ Chatty Cathy w/ a gun “ !
- “You’re taking my attention away from the stop,” says the lady cop who is giving the cameraman her undivided attention.
- We need more people like this guy who cares about the rights of other people as if they were his own, which they are.
- Everyone of these officers’ actions proved they knew they were being unlawful on camera and then tried to fabricate charges against lawful activity.
- It is obvious to me that the officers are engaging you in conversation to distract you and block you from recording the encounter. Then they get butthurt when they realize you know the law. I think it would have been a very different result without the camera.
- Police officer training time:
- Japan: 2 years
- Germany: 2 years
- Sweden: 2.5 years
- Italy: 4 years
- USA: 21 weeks, on average.
- As short as 16 weeks.
- And we are surprised at how ignorant of the law most officers are in the US.
- When they say “we group up for officer safety” the reply should be “we do too. that’s why I am recording, protecting my fellow citizen”
- You should invest in a long selfie stick that can reach well above your head so that if they again try to obstruct or distract you from filming you don’t have to worry about them following you around trying to stop you from seeing what they are doing. Then they could stand in front of you as long as they want. We appreciate all that you do to keep those gang members accountable and transparent. Y’all are awesome!!
- They’ve ran this drill before… she’s blocking audio and video while distracting the camera man. Auditors please leave your ego behind. If you were silent we may have been able to hear the other two officers intimidation tactics
- Why are we hiring such children to tell us what we’re doing wrong
- She keeps trying to block your camera, that’s a violation of your 1st amendment. She keeps lying. When they LIE call them LIARS.
- You always bring the best videos! It’s almost like they’re trying to distract the cameraman from what’s actually happening! The only “causing problems” I see is her not wanting to be transparent! She’s garbage!
- He should have pointed out as well, when he was counting the number of LE cameras on the scene recording,.. that his and the property’s camera were the only ones they couldn’t control..There have been far too many times when a FOIA is requested that the information is heavily redacted or mysteriously missing
- it always amazes me how a cop carrying, a gun, mase, and tazer, is the one who claims is in fear of there life when a civilian has there hand in there pocket lol
- Look out when you hear officers safety. How many innocent people have been killed for officers safety?
- It really is infuriating how they react to transparency. Like a secret cult … We are not secret police, or are we..
- They been doing what they want for a long time but now everyone has a camera so we see more of it
- The way I see it, if it takes 3 cops for a routine traffic stop, I suggest you put 3 cops in one squad car, and save tax payers money on purchasing 2 cars, not to mention the fuel consumption, maintenance, fuel usage and insurance. It would also make it easier for the 3 cops to conjure up some fake reasons to pull someone over and get their stories straight before the stop is even started. Win win for everybody concerned.
- So she is the distraction sent forward to take the focus away from what the other cops were doing?
- They’re convinced they’re intelligent and operate on what “normal” is. What if a police officer thinks skateboarding isn’t “normal”, they’re gonna question them everyday? Every time they see them?
- This is the civilian equivalent of a cop riding on someones bumper till they screw up. Not alot of fun huh cops?
- “Is this something that we’re beginning to see across the nation where cops do what they want, even commit crimes behind the scenes?” No this NOT something that we’re BEGINNING to see! It’s something that cops have always done and always will do.
- She’s calling a citizen a civilian that goes to show that they’re at war with us .
- She did exactly what she wanted to do. She took the auditor’s attention away from what was being said to the guy. Should have told her to be quiet so he could hear what was being said. She ran interference and it worked.
- Amazing how its always the most petty and self rightious ones that want to be cops, they say “oh they want to help people oh they want to make a difference” but usually display arrogance and indifference and a willingness to use force.
- As always the “law enforcers” act unlawful and face no consequences.
- It seems like leos act like criminals everytime there’s a camera. That’s a subconscious response. They know that they are to stupid to enforce the law without breaking the law. So they get aggravated anytime they think they might be forced to be accountable for their actions. Which is what cameras do.
- There is no reasonable expectation of privacy when in public, especially at the gas station. Most, if not all stations these days have cameras already recording. No wonder people lost so much respect for those tyrants. Smh
- The officers did not arrest Stephen or charge him with any crime. They just took his life savings and left him on the side of the road without enough money to even afford gas to drive home.
- He is considered guilty of having illicit cash until he can hire a lawyer to prove that he is innocent.

- Stephen is a 39-year-old retired Marine from Lubbock, Texas. He is a devoted father of two teenage daughters and, once a month, he drives from Texas to see them in California, where they live with their mother. Eager to be closer after spending the pandemic in Texas caring for his elderly parents, he has been shopping for a home near the California-Nevada border.
- In February 2021, Stephen was making his usual trip west through Reno when he was pulled over by the Nevada Highway Patrol for supposedly following a tractor-trailer too closely.
- The officer complimented Stephen’s driving, thanked him for observing the speed limit, and explained that NHP was “conducting a public information campaign” to help drivers avoid danger. Confident that the officer was only there to help, Stephen cooperated with his escalating investigation, even volunteering that he was carrying a large amount of cash.
- Ninety minutes later, Stephen had been robbed of his life savings—$86,900—which he carried with him after a spate of robberies in his parents’ neighborhood. The officer who pulled Stephen over wanted to let him go; he was overruled by NHP Sergeant Glenn Rigdon, who ordered the money seized specifically so that it could be “adopted” by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
- “Adoption” is a process by which federal law enforcement agencies can take over a seizure by state and local law enforcement. If the federal government is successful in forfeiting the property, its “equitable sharing” program guarantees the state or local agency that seized the property up to 80% of the proceeds for use in the agency’s budget.
- In Stephen’s case, the DEA sat on his life savings for months, ignoring the legal deadlines requiring it to charge Stephen with a crime, begin a civil forfeiture case against his property, or return the money within six months of seizure. The DEA did none of those things. So, on August 30, IJ sued it in federal court on Stephen’s behalf.
- Early the morning of September 1, the agency announced it would return all of Stephen’s money. In less than 24 hours, it had learned of our lawsuit, answered hard questions from The Washington Post, and committed to reviewing its policies for federal adoptions.
- When we learned he would be getting his money back (filled with joy), he told us, “This isn’t over.”
- And it isn’t. At the same time we filed in federal court, we also filed a major constitutional challenge in state court. Our state case aims to make federal adoptions impossible in Nevada as violations of the state constitution’s guarantees of reasonable seizures supported by probable cause and due process of law—not based on mere suspicion or for the financial benefit of the seizing agency. If we are successful, it will be the first time a state court has struck down federal adoptions. And a victory will take the profit motive out of roadside seizures.

This police officer not only admits to abusing her power, but seems proud to do this. Entitlement like this is exactly why we need police reform, and Jeff Wiggins breaks it down on Rebel HQ.
Translation: “(While Im on duty, Im going to break laws when I want to. If you are in the way of me breaking the law, I will find a way to give you a citation and cost you money and time)”
Nothing to see here folks. She took a course for a few weeks and earned herself a shiny badge so never mind the fact that she is literally here on video telling you she doesn’t understand the law and will actually violate your rights and the law on a whim… its, thin blue line and all that fun stuff so…. yeahhhh. You’re the bad guy if you come across her.
