(FreshAsFrankie) Many citizens are unaware that is it is legal to film police in your state, because most times, officers end up arresting and sometimes assaulting those who try to film them while they’re on duty. Now, a video has surfaced of a San Antonio, Texas police officer pulling a gun on a man who was trying to film authorities while on his own property.
In the video, a young man is filming a traffic stop while right outside of his house because he took notice of the officers being unnecessarily rough to his friends. However, the police noticed the young man was recording and proceeded to come towards him yelling. Within seconds of their interaction, the officer pulls his pistol on the young man filming, screaming at him to “Come here!” From there, the situation escalates as the cop takes the phone from the man and proceeds to handcuff him. The cop can be heard saying to the man “You don’t walk up on police officers like that,” even though the man was only filming on his property. Watch above.
