'Why Do We Keep Seeing Videos Like This?' | Morning Joe | MSNBC




  • When we follow you to a well light look what happens... LOL! I understand why you want to be in a well lit area but because of that, we had to over react. Love how they care for your safety but then put the blame on you for their behavior.

  • You fruitloops cannot possibly be serious. Tell me these jokers are joking. So, you throw on some camo and any cop should see that through your window and immediately say, "so sorry, go on your way". For real? I'm heading to Joe's Army Navy today and then I can hold up liquor stores, gas stations, maybe a bank! Hallelujah! It's a free for all in camo!

  • I am somewhat late on this, but just now came across this video. (1) Is there something that the Army officer did that I missed??? What was his offense? (2) The only people that I have ever seen holding their weapon at a 90 degree angle to their body (in person or on TV) were always gang members, so the question is (3) who trained these officers, and where? I was trained to hold my weapon on the same angle as my body. Apparently the younger officer toward the rear of the vehicle from the passenger door is EXTREMELY AFRAID: either of a black US Army male officer, or else his police partner who is spraying MACE in the Army officer's face (specifically his eyes).
