July 13, 2011: With videos of law enforcement officials acting poorly making the news lately, I decided to go in a different direction. Here is what I found:
There are many more videos of law enforcement officials behaving properly than there are of the opposite. The problem is they "are generally boring" or not "news worthy". Worse the general public starts suspecting that poor behavior is a norm among law enforcement officials, when actually it is a rare exception
Caught on this video, a motorist goes absolutely mental when he gets stopped for speeding by a very calm US highway patrol officer. According to Flint's Rock Radio this story never made the news, as most taped actions by law enforcement officials go unnoticed. The only reason this one, in particular, surfaced was: it is extremely funny. It was turned over to "Ultimate Countdown" and from time to time resurfaces.
I want to point out this officer is the rule not the exception.
