An Indiana cop was under the impression that “city property” was different than public property, giving him the authority to demand identification from a man video recording him from across the street.
The man reluctantly complied to avoid arrest. The interaction begins at 1:30 in the video.
The Kokomo police officer, a fresh-faced punk who had no business being a cop, ended up running a warrant search on the man, whose name is Alan Bowen.
The cop then told Bowen that he had the right to trespass him without a valid reason because they happened to standing in the okomo Housing Authority neighborhood, which is a government-funded housing project for low-income people.
The cop then said he would not trespass Bowen because his girlfriend lived in the neighborhood.
