  • Somewhere else a group of soldiers will come looking for that policemen

  • La verdad que la police yanqui una mierda, no tienen repesto por nadie, ni siquiera por un soldado que van a la guerra y ellos se quedan por inútiles!! 😡😡

  • This is the most weirdest thing to get arrested and treated badly for🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

  • He video taped it because he knew he was going to be argumentative and resist the police officer's commands. Wake up people, white guys not cooperating will get same treatment. Tinted windows are illegal, he looked suspicious. Defund police leads to more crime.

  • Stupid police.. !!!

  • the dislikes are from the cops

  • Cops need to stop acting surprised when they're assumed to be pigs. Maybe they're good cops, definitely a possibility, but if they're pigs the assumption that they're good will get someone killed. Better safe than sorry.

  • Lucky tht we have a plan going in motion towards the police boom 💥 hahaha

  • He was calm due to his training. I wonder how it would have turned out for any other person who is civilian who does not know how to handle a situation like that with a calm manner.

  • What a joke!!!

  • Peppered sprayed... I can't breathe

  • This why we the laughing stock of the world

  • Good

  • What a bunch of morons... Sue them Lt...

  • This hurts so much when u serve the same country n yet they treat u this way!!!

  • Good bless i dont like in America 😁

  • Hotanghenang kalbo to! He repeateadly pepper sprayed the officer! What in the fK!

  • America is only a great country for white people

  • Cop is one of the top 10 professions sociopaths gravitate towards. Google it.

  • American likes treating us black Americans badly 😢😕😐

  • Jail those cop plzzzzzz

  • ...what an idiot police man

  • Просто по приколу посмотрел

  • I hope the Lieutenant knows their address to ask his homies for an airstrike!

  • Glad to live in Europe.

  • Pinches policías de m*****

  • How can a Police Officer treat an Army like that? WTF is going on? LOL They work for the same country, don't they? This is mind blowing.

  • I think people should join police instead of Army in USA..😅😂

  • Welcome to United States

  • Police are just trigger happy at this point

  • White cops 😒

  • Is he Black or Latino? You can’t be both lol.

  • Its disgusting. Ive had cops some up to my car with guns drawn. With my wife and child in a car seat.

  • That young guy looks like a rookie and is being trained poorly !!

  • In my country cops are fired just by having the idea of pull out their guns. In most cases, to the law the criminals became victims though.

  • Most if those people are racist to black

  • 😟😟😟😟😟😟

  • Dobre zjeby. Jednak policja w stanach to debile z odznakami i co gorsza z bronią. Powinni dostać po dwa lata więzienia to by się nauczyli szacunku do żonierza.

  • It's don't matter where, people with weapons and uniforms are very bad

  • The electric feet marginally fool because latex intriguinly tire an a inquisitive salmon. steadfast, minor gliding

  • I never visit the USA. Never ever.

  • Y'all make all cops look bad these cops should be arrested and fired

  • wtffff hahhaha never see something stupid

  • 😒 why the (BLM) do not come out the car. is he a Chicken Arme afraid of Police

  • I was really hoping that the lieutenant would put them in their place about how he outranks them and actually does something for the country unlike these two pieces of sh*t. I hope he takes these two idiots for everything they have.. disgusting

  • Shame

  • Stop jumping to conclusions, you don’t know the full story the cops are not in the wrong in this one, it’s the army guy

  • Typical police employee sub-human piles of excrement acting high on sugar, caffeine and steroids thinking they're bullet proof. Only the worst garbage takes these types of jobs. I hope he wins BIG money!

  • THIS VIDEO IS EDITED, The actual full footage is senewss.info/slow/i8mmg9F6r7TLjJE/video The police officers weren't in the wrong

  • Better title: Police officer fired for pepper spraying lieutenant. Shove race into everything and you see racism everywhere when there isn’t racism everywhere. At the end of the day the dude didn’t listen to instructions so he’s at fault here. Just another time of listen to instructions and nothing would happen but disobey instructions and pay the consequences.

  • I can take that is dangerous to be black or latino in USA. What's wrong with those people?

  • Those two worthless cops serve Americans wow what a disgrace to an oath he took.

  • I guarantee that if he tried to unbuckle his seatbelt, he woulda been shot and the officers would’ve said that he thought that he was going to pull a gun 💀

  • Does any one know what happened to these officers?

  • Coming to a PD near you.

  • Even the rookie officer was confused

  • Penn vs Mimms. He has to step out. Its a statute. This culture of not listening to police is the problem.

  • Just think if he had a hood on!! They would have killed him!

  • the police officers should be behind bars now

  • “I’m honestly afraid to get out-“ “Yeah, you should be.” Hey, officer, broski, I don’t think saying that is going to coax him out. Pointing a gun at someone and then exclaiming how they SHOULD be scared to comply with your orders doesn’t seem like the best way to get someone to comply with your orders.

  • My mom got pulled over cuz hers was tinted as well and she's black / Latino

  • Respect the trups

  • Stupid police!!!

  • plus he didn't do anything that was illegal the officer did and the officer should be suspended for 17 months due to the illegalness to a citizen

  • The whole world is laughing about that u s and a. Poor Country with Poor Problems

  • A.C.A.B 🖕🖕🖕🖕🤮🤮🤮

  • Bored by their jobs as an officer, should take a break and think what you're doing and for what

  • Discussed by the both cops 👮‍♂️

  • 👊👊👊

  • Fired? That´s it?? Fired??

  • Нихуя не понял

  • The real question is how is even possible that people like that are able to become police officers?…how is such a bully be able to get in police force?The recruitment process should be updated because clearly is not working and everyone is in danger to lose his live be being stopped be such officers.

  • "you gotta get real calm, real quick if you wanna get out of there alive"


  • THAT GUY SHOULD BE IN PRISON!!!!For Assualt of military Personnel I believe it's a FELONY!! Military police Should have been notified if this officer Committed a Crime.

  • Police are idiot

  • Feel sorry for you guys 😖🇺🇸 Racism naaaa 😖 you have problems against humanity

  • ACAB

  • i hate these fcking racists wtf is wrong with these people

  • If this was happend in india, The police will be afraid of pulling an army officer out of their vehicle because Army is Respected more than Police in india

  • Police officer fired? GOOD. Start making an example of these arrogant people who think they are above the law.

  • Joe Guterriez was trained by the cops from Idiocracy.

  • These cops that do this are Nazis just looking to get a gold pair of shoelaces.


  • "Since when do you get pulled over for having tinted windows?" Since your were born
