I happened upon the video below of a man outside his home hooking up a trailer when a police officer stops in front of him and eventually exits the police vehicle and draws his weapon. I don’t know what the history is with the man who shot the video and the police, but a police officer drawing his firearm for no reason is a show of deadly force and in NC could be met with a similar force, there is no distinction as to profession. I suppose one could argue the man filming was the instigator because he was filming, but that argument really doesn’t hold water. From where I sit he was looking for a reason to arrest or shoot the man in his own yard. It was lucky for the man he was filming and lucky for the officer he didn’t try this on the wrong person. This officer should find new employment and stop trying to intimidate citizens he does not like for simply¬†taking his photo driving his vehicle.
