In the typical display of arrogance and intimidation that has become the norm for cops these days, an Oxnard police officer told a man he was not allowed to video record them because they were conducting “an operation” in the parking lot of what appeared to be a busy commercial strip mall.
The operation consisted of Oxnard police and Ventura County deputies drawing up some type of plans on the hood of the car in plain view of anybody walking by.
A video posted by a pair of Youtube pranksters claiming to prove racial profiling by the New York City Police Department appears to be a prank.
Nevertheless, numerous websites are running with it as if it were real.
However, dozens of commenters are voicing their skepticism on the video as well as in the articles.
Citing safety reasons, a Tucson police officer wrote in his report that he was able to confiscate two cameras from a citizen, despite being momentarily blinded by the flash of an iPhone as well as the light from a tiny flashlight.
But if shining lights in peoples eyes were truly a safety issue, then cops would be guilty at putting us all at risk with their high-powered flashlights.

A federal jury awarded an astronomical $97.5 million dollars to the family of a former mayor who was shot and killed by a police officer with a troubled past.
Now the town of Cottageville, population 750, is wondering how and if it will ever pay the money to the family of Bert Reeves, who was killed by Randall Price, a cop who had been through eight jobs in 11 years, including having been fired from several departments.
The lawsuit contended that the town never should have hired Price knowing his troubled history. Price is also named in a separate lawsuit from another Cottageville resident.
The Cleburne Police Department in Texas confirmed today that a viral video claiming to be one of their officers shooting dead two dogs with wagging tails is legitimate.
In the 22 second video, you can hear the cop coaxing the dogs over and firing three shots. It’s clear that one dog is injured but the second dog just stands around. The video ends with a chirp of the walkie-talkie and the officer pointing his service weapon at the other dog.
It’s also clear that the dogs pose no immediate threat to the officer given that he approached them before opening fire.
