This cop needs to seriously calm the hell down. He attempted to steal someone’s personal property and someone tried to step back. The officer claims they touched him, even though video shows otherwise. The officer claims to have authority when in fact he had none.
The reason the cop wanted that camera is because he wants to have total control of the situation, including evidence that could be used against him.
