    I was flying home the other night and while standing on the curb waiting for my ride a limo driver pulled up got out of the car and opened the car door.  The door was not even all the way open yet and the cop was in the drivers face yelling at him to move his car.  The driver tried to explain that his passengers were coming right now and the cop kept cutting him off and telling him to move the car.   The driver said fine, closed the door, and by the time he got to the back of the car to walk around the passengers walked up and the cop walked away.  I openly and very loudly said "Hey officer PIG, there is absolutely no reason to abuse people while doing your job. That guy was there for 5 seconds before you were on him and it was another 5-10 seconds later that you were threatening him with arrest for not moving his car fast enough."   He denied abusing anybody and I just replied "Fuck you, officer pig, Im just calling it like I see it" and turned around and walked away.      

    I didn't have to cuss, but I let it out because I was angry.  Exercise your first ammendment rights. Speak up when you see this happening.  Dont walk away.  Take out your camera and video tape.  Its absolute bullshit.   They treat people like shit and know that they can get away with it.  

    Why don't cops like cell phone videos?  Because it puts the power to hold them publicly accountable in the hands of the public and not in the hands of their superiors who look the other way.

      I fear that's a good way to end up dead.  Maybe I'm wrong.

      Cell phone video is safer - also could be an excuse for execution if noticed.

      I have a video camera that looks like a car remote.  That would be more likely to go unnoticed.
