Wilmington, NC — A powerful video, taken by an attorney while being harassed by police, illustrates the power of filming — and why cops will lie through their teeth, apply intimidation tactics, and threaten you to get you to stop it.

Attorney Jesse Bright, who works as an Uber driver in his spare time, was on a round trip drive, bringing a man who works as a pet groomer to pick up his paycheck on Feb. 26. During the first Uber stop, police suddenly surrounded the vehicle and forced the passenger to submit to a search because they were near a known “drug house.”

For his safety and to account for the officers’ actions, Bright began filming. When Sergeant Kenneth Becker saw that he was recording, that’s when the lies, threats, and intimidation began.

Officer: Hey bud, turn that off, OK?
Bright: No, I’ll keep recording. Thank you. It’s my right.
Officer: Don’t record me. You got me?
Bright: Look, you’re a police officer on duty. I can record you.
Becker then walks to driver’s side of vehicle to escalate the level of intimidation.
Officer: Be careful because there is a new law. Turn it off or I’ll take you to jail.
Bright: For recording you? What is the law?
Officer: Step out of the car.
Bright: What are you arresting me for? I’m sitting here in my car. I’m just recording in case anything happens. I’m surrounded by five police officers.
Officer: You’re being a jerk.
Bright: I’m scared right now. I’m not being a jerk. I’m recording in case anything happens.
Officer: You better hope we don’t find something in your car?
Bright: You’re not searching my car?
Officer: I’m going to search your car.
Bright: You’re not searching my car.
To apply yet another level of intimidation on a man for the sole reason that he was asserting his rights, this belligerent cops then calls for a K-9 unit.
Bright: Bring the K-9s. I don’t care. I know my rights.
Officer: I hope so. I know what the law is.
Bright: I know the law. I’m an attorney, so I would hope I know what the law is.
Officer: And an Uber driver?
The cops couldn’t believe that an attorney could also work in his spare time to earn extra money.
For the next several minutes, the cops teamed up on Bright and continued their intimidation. However, Bright did not back down.
While the video was rolling, Bright held all the power and the cops knew this — thus, the reason for them trying to force him to stop filming. Finally, the cops, without Bright’s consent, intimidated him to the point where he was unlawfully coerced into conceding to a search. According to Bright, they falsely claimed their K9 alerted to the car and proceeded to get back at him for asserting his right and embarrassing them. The video also confirms this, since the dog never stopped or ‘alerted’ to anything.

As the Free Thought Project has pointed out many times before, cops falsely claim their dogs alert to substances all the time. After they claimed the dog ‘alerted’, the belligerent cop then made a snide remark about the false alert.
