Cop Spits on American Citizen in Public, Smirks Afterwards
OAKLAND — A raw video recording has just been uploaded to YouTube showing a police officer literally spitting on an American citizen who was filming him.
Details surrounding the incident are unclear at this time.
But it appears that citizens were being questioned by the police.
As the camera turns to the cop, two things can be noticed.
The cop first appears to take something out of his mouth and throw it toward the man filming.
It could be a piece of food or gum, but it is unclear from the footage itself.
That’s when the unthinkable happens.
The cop can be seen arching his head and literally spitting at the man filming him, and from the direction of the camera, it appears that spit flew toward the filmer’s face.
Shocked, the filmer can be heard saying “What the fuck bro?”
Another citizen who evidently saw the spitting take place can be heard saying either “that’s harassment” or “that’s assault.”
To which the cop smirks and replies that it’s not.
Of course, if a citizen were to ever spit on a cop, he would be charged with assaulting an officer, arrested, and possibly beaten.
Possibly even killed if the cop were to use the old “feared for my life” trick.
But a cop spitting on a citizen seems to be perfectly OK.
To see the cop in the video appearing to spit on the citizen just shows the complete level of disdain and disrespect that some cops have toward those safely holding them accountable.
This article will be updated as more information is made available regarding the cop’s identity and whether he will face disciplinary action.
