Fuckin' pieces of shit fuckin' obstructing him while he's fuckin' quality fuckin' reportin'. Ain't nobody confronting cops with the hope of being assaulted around here. Y'all.

Stay classy. The 80s called, they want their mullet back.

I have no sympathy for people who are looking for a fight/lawsuit. Hes way too confrontational for my shit to be given. If he had been polite, but firm, and not so arrogant, I'd care.

By the way, he didn't get the shot he wanted because the sgt didn't take the bait. He was there for a confrontation, not the news.

Why not both?
He was there for the news, but was prepared to get a confrontation because that sells. How would he know some cop would abuse their authority and lie about the law to harass him...just because two had done so before?

Remember your position the next time a cop stops you from doing your job, costing you money because he wants to and for no other reason.

Like the police don't have enough of a tough job, now they have douche-reporter chasing them around and getting in the way.

If they are legally allowed to do it, I think they should. The job is tough enough but it's also tougher on the public when police make wrong decisions either inadvertently or deliberately. In both cases it helps to record the event when possible. News crews do have limits on how close they can get to scene before overstepping their bounds.

With the constant flow of proof that cops lie, cheat, and steal daily, and the complicit nature of their superiors allowing them to hide the proof of their crimes, they have forced society into requiring douche reporters chasing the douche cops to capture independent proof of their criminal behavior....proof they can't erase or deny exists.
Notice how easily this douche cop comes up with multiple lies to detain the videographer, intentionally interfering with his job, to protect his cohorts ability to lie to citizens without a record, because undoubtedly all their body cams are turned off.
Also notice how, when those body cams are replaced secretly with cams that only appear to turn off, but keep recording, they consistently capture abuse of power if not outright falsification of charges, like the one just caught framing over 120 for drug possession in a single year.

Cops have made their own job tougher by insisting on being able to legally lie, and being a cadre of criminal liars who think they're above the law, and are all too often right about that thanks to apologists and those willing to turn a blind eye.

Great. Now the body cams are lying. Where does it end?
