      Respectful stop very nice of the police to talk like they have sense and not treat him like dirt

    Easy stop. Just cooperate. Save your "rights" thing for a rainy day. Yes, he was polite and honest. I have more respect for him than those in the usual dramatic stops.

    Yet all the cops are bad. I see from this video what everyone was talking about.

    Nah we just friendly in Portland RIPCITY 💪🏽💪🏽

  • Я does not equal R

    Honestly asking, why did the cop take the dude out the car when he was not driving and this was just a routine stop? Is that illegal? And then he took pictures of his tats and stuff. Could the dude have refused all of this and went home just fine? This just looked fishy to me.

    • Blake Killion
      Blake Killion 7 hours ago

      Playyvh why would he take pictures and document that he is a gang member, so they can discriminate him if he ever runs into law enforcement again, even if he calls the police, they will be thinking, oh this is a violent gang member, for the rest of his life he will be watched by the police, even after admitting to not be in the gang anymore

    Passenger of car isn't legally required to provide name or identification. Nor are they required by law to pose for a photo shoot.

  • Alrachid

    Nice civilian, good police officer. I like seeing stuff like this. Honesty, and some trust. The cop could have pressed him more, or trying to make up BS like other cops to get a dog there and try to search. But no, he ran his name and let them on their way.

    I don't know mannn... She was driving so why card him a passenger? Tattoos? Cop wasn't aggressive but I don't think thats legal. I guess its different in every state. I'm just saying if we are free, we got rights. Just saying.

    • Desert Hugh Freeman

      You got to give me more then that. I don’t think it is.

    • NerdBash2020
      NerdBash2020 9 days ago

      Desert Hugh Freeman it is legal. On a traffic stop he can ask for identification of anyone in the vehicle. He clearly saw tats affiliated with a gang. This goes for every state

    This is a 100% reality check. Goes to show you that if you respect and obey the officer's orders you will most likely get the same respect back and everything will be 👌. No tickets, No warnings, No Nothing. Just a Thank You, Have a Safe night and you will be on your way.

      Johnny bro I’m a 180 pound 6’1 white kid and if I went around talking to people like that where I live I’d get my teeth kicked in. Fact. Maybe you’re just extra sheltered by your momma.

      DawsonEdiger thats racist? You must be a professional victim if that qualifies as racist to you

    • DawsonEdiger
      DawsonEdiger 9 days ago

      Johnny because he’s a white cop who obviously doesn’t talk like that most of the time. That’s racist there little buddy

    • Johnny
      Johnny 9 days ago

      How is communicating in a way the guy is comfortable with being disrespectful? Whose he gonna be more open with, a cop asking him things in a way that goes over his head or a cop who talks to him like his buddys do at the garage.
