draws in people that feel powerless, and therefore have a need to bully and dominate others.
When someone "strips" them of that power, they are likely to lose it.
Don't pay attention to this "be respectful" crap that people always say about dealing with cops. Record it. Record it. Record it.
There is no law saying you must be respectful to a cop. And even if there was, it shouldn't be obeyed.
ACLU has a handy Android/iPhone app for recording and uploading automatically police encounters so that even if they take your phone, you still have the video. Download it, install it, and use it.
