It's not. I see it often. Why though do people turn on their video and then proceed to act like tools. I'm all for it. Record your encounter but why be provocative when you do it? I will tell you. It is to try to get the police to respond. He is correct in stating that it is self absorbed and immature.Since when is making the police follow the law/constitution "cop abuse"?
What's abusive about asking, "Am I free to leave, or am I being detained"?
