For more than three minutes, a British cop tells a citizen he has no right to record him unless the videographer assured him a copy of the video.

The Nottingham police officer then demands the videographer’s name and address, but the man questions the law that would require him to provide that information.

The cop then orders the man to delete the footage, only it’s done in that English manner where it doesn’t really come across as an order.

An American cop wouldn’t have lasted a minute before smacking the camera out of the man’s hands.

Instead, the two debate the issue as another cop with a camera walks up and begins recording.

The video was uploaded in November and has only received a little over 500 views, even though it is both infuriating and comical at the same time.
