UPDATE — From the Huffington Post:
A spokeswoman for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department confirmed to The Huffington Post that the police officer in the video used to be with the department but said he has been retired for many months now. Since he is no longer with the department, there will be no investigation into this incident.
She also added that the video recorded by Jeremy could have been recorded earlier than September 2012. She said the uniform the officer is wearing is from over a year ago.
No one likes the “do as I say, not as I do” attitude. Not you, not me, and certainly not 12-year-old Jeremy.
In fact, Jeremy dislikes this attitude so much, that in a video from 2012 that has just now gone viral he called out a Las Vegas metro cop for parking his motorcycle on the sidewalk. And why was that police officer parked on the sidewalk? Well, it appears that he wanted to grab a soda.
No emergency. Just a soda.
“Is there a reason for you to park on the sidewalk?” Jeremy asks. “Is it like an emergency or anything?”
The officer refused.
“Can I see your badge number?” the kid asks.
“Why?” the officer responds.
“Because I have the right to.”
“What are you, a junior lawyer?”
“No I just want to see your badge number.”
The officer refused and simply took off:
“Brat” or good citizen, we can all agree that a 12-year-old calling out a police officer is at least kind of gutsy, right?
