A 12-year-old called out a cop for parking illegally in Las Vegas.
The boy, named Jeremy, video taped the officer as he pulled his motorcycle on the sidewalk. The boy doesn’t seem to understand why the officer, someone who is paid to uphold the law, would disregard simple parking rules.
The boy asks: “Is there a reason for you to park on the sidewalk? Is it an emergency or anything?”
When the officer doesn’t answer Jeremy’s question, the 12-year-old starts asking for the officer’s badge number. The cop continues to protest, but Jeremy isn’t intimidated by the officer’s size.
When asked why he wants the badge number, Jeremy replies: “Because I have the right to.”
At this point, the cop has had enough and tries to turn the table on the 12-year-old. He asks the child if he has any idea (he doesn’t, he’s 12) and tells them that he should stop loitering.
Jeremy didn’t get any answers from the police officer, but he did start a debate on the internet. Is Jeremy a model citizen who expects his neighborhood law enforcement to obey the laws they enforce? Or is he just an annoying 12-year-old who has no respect for the law?
Here’s the video of the 12-year-old calling out the cop for his illegal park job. What do you think of Jeremy’s video.
Whatever your opinion, I think we can all agree that Jeremy should work on his video skills for next session of citizen justice.
