ok, I watched the entire video, and then went back and watched selected parts again.
Was the officer illegally parked? Yes. But was there a reason?Â* Sometimes, a police car may be parked at an intersection to passively enforce traffic laws, like stopping at stop signs or speeding. Perhaps there was drug activity at the corner and the officer parked the car there to ward off potential customers. We see the officer come from a house quite a distance from the parked car. If it was my cruiser, I'd have it parked in front of my house (to keep an eye on it) rather than halfway down the block. Sometimes the police do things that we may not as civilians understand, nor is it any of our business if its an ongoing investigation/attempt to prevent crime.
The responding Lt. was very polite and cordial. He spoke to the citizen in a professional manner, and identified himself by name and with a business card. He even said that OC was fine when advised that the man was carrying.
The second section of video appears that the OC'er was waiting for the off duty officer, in fact, standing in his path. The off duty officer was walking and talking on his phone when the OC'er engaged him in conversation. The off duty officer ended his phone conversation and carried on a polite conversation for quite a while with the man. I didnt hear any raised voices or profanity. After the conversation ended, the OC'er continued to run tape of the off duty officer walking around his own neighborhood.
Aside from the OC'er being a bit of a stalker and borderline instigator (imo), what was the problem?Â* And really, what does this have to do with OC or firearms?
