[WATCH] Oklahoma Military Police Harass and Intimidate Citizen for Recording Air Base

Oklahoma military police, assisted by two Oklahoma state cops, were recorded lying to a citizen journalist in order to get him to surrender identification while peacefully and lawfully recording the Oklahoma Air National Guard base from a public space on August 31.

“Are you aware in the state of Oklahoma when a law enforcement officer asks you for identification that you’re required to produce it?” asked Master Sgt. Jason Cattleman, even though that is a blatant lie.

Castleman, whose Facebook page shows a photo of him posing in front of the White House, couldn’t seem to understand why anyone would want to record a military installation.”

“What is going on?” Castleman asks.

“Just taking pictures,” said the citizen journalist who goes by Picture Perfect on YouTube.

Why?”

“Because I want to.”

“Why do you want to?”

“I don’t have to explain myself to you, sir.”

“Well, you understand as law enforcement officers we have an expressed interest in why you want to film the installation….”

“I understand that, but that fence right there is your jurisdiction. Right here you’re off your installation, you’re off your installation; you don’t have any jurisdiction.”

“Uh, are you an attorney?” Castleman asks. “I wasn’t aware.”

“Have a nice day, sir.” Picture Perfect replies. “I’m not gonna sit here and argue with you for you to make smart ass comments.”

“I’m just curious, because, uh, you were informing me of my jurisdiction.” Castleman says before turning to the Oklahoma state police officer standing nearby.

“Yeah, on that base, not out here.”

“Can you tell me where this gentleman’s jurisdiction lies,’ Castleman asks pointing to the Oklahoma state cop standing next to him.
