The Jack-Booted Thug of the Week...

... is Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Officer T.R. Dyke, who has just enough of a clue to not falsely arrest 19-year-old photographer Jerome Vorus for taking some pictures of buses from a public sidewalk, but who still impotently attempts to intimidate Vorus into not exercising a myriad of rights, all to no avail:

This would actually be quite humorous if it weren't such an infuriating example of official bullying.

Vorus is very mature for his age and handled the interaction incredibly well.  This should serve as a guide for how to handle such situations.

(h/t to Carlos Miller, who is the go-to source for such stories.)
