Hat/Tip to The Free Thought Project.
We all know that feeling in the pit of our stomach when we look in the mirror and see the red and blue lights going crazy behind us. We check our speedometer, our seat belt and then wonder if it’s a light out, or what?
Well a truck driver recently turned the tables on a member of law enforcement when he saw an Illinois State Trooper speeding with no emergency lights on, while talking on his cell phone.
Trucker Brian Miner was driving through Illinois this week when he says he saw an officer of the law pass him traveling well over the posted speed limit.
He says that the officer was on his cellphone as well.
Mr. Miner, like most of us does not like the above the law, double-standard of police, so he took action by honking his horn to pull the officer over.
What happens next is an amazing transformation.
At the beginning of the stop this officer is confrontational, stretches the truth, and talks about citing Miner for excessive use of his horn.
He says police can use electronic devices, but this is only true if they are “performing his or her official duties.”
What happens during that stop is very revealing, for once the truck driver let the officer know he was being recorded, the entire conversation changed.
When the camera comes on this officer goes from tough guy to nice guy, like a switch was flipped.
He was busted! And he knew it!
Below is a terrific example of citizen accountability through filming cops; this is how we incite positive change.
