    Painfull to try to watch that video, too bad it keeps pausing to buffer or whatever. I couldn't get through the whole thing. Of what I did see, seems like the guy taking the video did a great job standing up for his rights.

    A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.

    I think the officer hated being on film I really dislike it when Police are aggressive against someone when they haven't done anything wrong or suspicious. Thanks for sharing.

    He followed the police to ask if he was being detained, when he obviously wasn't. Why would someone do that?

    It's entirely too easy to lose your calm and professionalism in those circumstances - for both the cops AND the citizens.

    Sometimes cops walk away briefly, but keep you detained. Best example is a traffic stop, where he leaves to fill out the ticket, but you are not yet free to go.

    In the heat of the moment, it might not have been obvious that he wasn't free to go.

    Also, he was basically chased away from the group he was originally filming. He might not have intended to follow the cop; he may have just been going back toward the group.

    He might also have been looking for "yes, you're being detained," if he's one of those lawsuit types.

    But I'm not him, I'm just speculating.

    Didn't watch the whole video but I thought it was funny that he asked for a permit for open carry then the guy said "what permit?" Then he asked for his drivers license and he inquired as to if he was driving a motor vehicle haha. epic.

    Now I dont know if it was just me, but did the cameraman/OCer seem a bit "argumentative" with the Officer?

    if you listen the officer says "hold on" as he turns to walk back to his car so the OP asking am I being detained is a very reasonable question.
