    Videographer with his tripod in a case questioned because police think it contains a gun.

    Tries to walk away but officer just about begs for a chat.

    What would you do? Would you give up your 4th Amendment Rights & privacy & show them what you have inside a case? Or stand your ground on principal and just not answer questions.

    I can give respect, if it is being reciprocated. I only fast forwarded through the video but I would love to have every officer I talk to be as professional as those sheriffs. And I would give a simple answer, maybe not great detail but respect the officers duties also.

    Standing up for your 4th Amendment Rights around here = get thrown in jail plus a $500 fine for Interfering with a peace officer.

    yeah, but what kind of society is it when the police start treating everyone as suspicious until proven otherwise. Sir, sir... what's that bulge in your pants....

    Its idiots like this that ruin it for everyone.
    He's obviously trying to make a point , the LEO gives him several opportunities to just say "no thanks, this conversation is over and walk away". The LEO even gives him that option, "you can say you don't want to talk to me and go on your way".
    It doesn't accomplish anything unless you're just looking for a reason to upload a video on YT and get some views. Waste of everyones times.

    Same here, if the LEOS are being professional, I cooperate; particularly with the game enforcement officers.

    The cop should have gone Rick Grimes on him. I would feel safer with less idiots roaming around.

    I didn't watch the vid, but in general, I do not talk to the police (I used to be a federal LEO, I still have friends who are LEOs and I have a cousin who is NCIS):

    The Cops job is to protect us from others that mean us harm.

    X2. though, every state police or fish and game guy ive ran into out hunting in eastern oregon has always first offered me a hand in skinning or whatever... then checks my tags and license. those guys, i respect. heck, one time a state officer walked into our group of 8 dudes all with sidearms visible... he didnt even have to think twice he just knew we werent out there to cause trouble.

    You realize that SCOTUS has ruled IT IS NOT THE OFFICERS JOB TO PROTECT YOU right?

    Exactly.

    The job of a Law Enforcement Officer is to enforce the law.

    Funny how that escapes some people.

    If they can get there before harm is done, then they will usually try to protect you. But most of the time they are not called until someone is already harmed, at which time they will take a report, file it, and if possible try to find the person who broke the law and arrest them, if they stumble across them while on patrol.

    Just walk away. You should NEVER give up your fourth amendment rights.

    EVER

    Anyway, the ninth district court has ruled that a single use case, like a gun case, does not present probable cause for search let alone a multiuse bag.

    I strongly disagree, this shows you how bad it really is.
    Open carriers have a constitutional right to open carry a firearm, this ties into that. Yes its just a bag, and he could have just done what he was told like a good little civilian.. Making a scene or NOT we have a right to go about our day unharassed, especially if we arent harming or infringing on others.

    Id say if the cops are that jumpy they need more training and self restraint or just something better to do.

    That's fine and I agree.
    So just ask the cop if he's done,am i being arrested?,if not I am leaving.
    My problem with these JackHats is they have to keep this crap up instead of just leaving.He made his point now walk off and let the cop get on his way
    If the cop isn't arresting you all you have to do is walk.
    But these you tube hack need their air time And anyone who clicked,including me,just fed their little brains with excitement 'Oh boy look at how many hits we got!!'
    Only most were like mine and only watched the first 20 seconds
