This clip might be one place where Left and Right can actually agree on something.
The Left has lately developed a general narrative of distrust against law enforcement generally.
The Right generally backs the police, but have a general narrative of distrust against over-reaching examples of government authority.
This video is where the Venn diagram of those two circles overlap.
Just because ‘most’ cops are decent, does not mean either that (A) All cops are decent… or that (B) they always know the right thing to do in every situation.
On the other side, just because there are SOME places where government DOES need to be granted powers of authority, does not mean that citizens should be casual about which rights they are told they must forfeit.
This cop crossed a line with a crying little kid. And judging by the way he continued to reason with the crying little boy, he didn’t even KNOW he crossed that line.

This Clash editor isn’t a cop but has been trained to work with disabled people in these situations.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
