Civilians 'baiting' cops to lure them into trouble
Civilians 'baiting' cops to lure them into trouble We're seeing it more and more: Civilians with a camera attached to their hand or a recorder in their pocket, just setting themselves up for a confrontation with police, praying that the officer slips for just a second. Often, it's a person well-versed in the laws of open carry with a cell phone camera and a weapon, proudly exercising their 2nd amendment rights. Most recently, it was a motorist antagonizing a cop by riding on his bumper until the officer did exactly what the camera-toting motorist was hoping he would do: lost control for just a second.
