Once again, a cop has attempted to browbeat a civilian into not recording their abuses of power. While the Norfolk, Virginia cop was interrogating and a friend of Jeremiah Schwenk, Schwenk began recording the incident. The officer, upset with the transparency in action and having his brutal methods put out for all the world to see, approached Schwenk and threatened to arrest him for “interfering.”
When that didn’t work, the cop threatened to arrest him for “causing a disturbance,” which is a catch all phrase a cop uses when you’re doing something they don’t like — like filming them. When Jeremiah asked him for his badge number and name, the cop was unable to contain his anger anymore, and lost it.
Big Brother take note — you may be watching, but we’re looking right back.
