Cool he acknowledges the 5th Amendment, but what about the 4th??

I would of had to say that if he was so receptive on the 5th amendment, good of him to respect the 5th Amendment at least. I think one idea is to print out the 4th Amendment in a really big font on a 8.5 x 11 paper at just put that up in front of your face when you stop while the window is rolled up. After 20 seconds of being stopped with enough time to give someone to read it, slowly proceed forward if possible......

kind people rock

We're winning!

We need to win the hearts of these men. They are the military front line that occupy our society and without them, the legislature is impotent.

I'm one of those jerks he's referring to (not really) but everytime I pass through there I politely do the same, and have confronted them countless times since they've opened that checkpoint in 1995ish.

WOW! I can't believe it.

Thank you border patrol for coming around.

I'm so cynical, but I think its reality

He'll either be:

A) Fired in two years
B) Resign in two years
C) Manifest into a monster

Uhm, how come nobody has mentioned...

...that the cop seemed to be hinting that the level of respect shown to him played a role in a person's rights being respected?

Don't get me wrong, btw. I do think we should be respectful to cops (and to everyone, for that matter). That's just a good rule of thumb for living your life. However, I'm of the opinion that a person in power should feel OBLIGATED to protect the rights of the citizens regardless of whether or not the person is being disrespectful. In fact, I would say that should be a critical part in the determination of whether a person should be trusted to be an enforcer of the law.

That official was cool!

He should be running for office!

sorry... in campaign mode!


I was actually shocked by a government agent's behavior for once!

I don't know...

I don't know if the agent is being sarcastic or not.

He sounds like he sincerely means the "you know your constitutional rights" part...

But I don't know if he is being sincere about the "other people are annoying" part.

OMG enough with the gum

OMG enough with the gum chewing!!

I thought the same thing!

THAT aspect was obnoxious, but otherwise, I was happy to see someone in that uniform behaving contrary to my preconceived notion.

We the People have trained our employee well


Wow. I am BEYOND surprised!

I thought I would NEVER see a video like that in my lifetime!

That boarder patrol agent has earned my trust and respect! So rarely do you find someone that isn't wanting to wave his "authority" around like a school yard bully. This dude is a COMPLETE professional!

I agree!

I wish we knew his name.
He would be getting some fan mail!

You people talk with no research, i used to live near that checkpoint. it is placed just west of a connecting highway that leads straight to the border in campo, ca. that is just a couple miles out from mexico. Everyone is so quick to jump to conclusions. i do agree with most people on the gestapo tactics of most law enforcement, but you have to not be one-sided about everything. You complain about too many illegals in this country, then complain when the people trying to keep them out do their jobs.
arguments for the sake of drama do no good. put your efforts where they might do some real good and stop trying to be a comment board extremist!!!

I'm afraid I don't understand your point...

but I can say i do not ever complain about too many "illegals" (people) being in this country. My only complaint is with the drug laws that encourage bad individuals to come here. But as far as the video goes, I don't really understand what you are arguing... the officer should have been hostile?

downvote neutralized.

Bring it whiners.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.



With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

+1 for sharing

+10 for a cop who knows what's up.
