A Connecticut state police officer displayed a complete lack of professionalism when he confronted a photojournalist who was videotaping a car fire on Interstate 95 in Fairfield.

The photojournalist, who was shooting for the Connecticut Post, was standing well out the way of the car fire, so he was not interfering with any official business.

But that didn’t stop the cop from storming up to him and throwing a temper tantrum beginning at 2:20 in the video.

“Does it look like something that needs to be filmed right now. There’s somebody who’s dying over there.

“Turn that goddamn thing off and get out of here.”

The photojournalist turned the camera off, so it is unclear what happened after that.

The Connecticut Post reports that nobody died in the car fire.
