The Jack-Booted Thug of the Week...

... is the arrogant and abusive Lincoln Park, Michigan police officer who curses out and threatens to arrest a motorist filming some apparently lazy public works employees simply because the activist politely refuses to stop recording his interaction with the cop (the first part of the vid is an audio summary; the actual footage begins at 0:46):

That's some fine public "service" on display right there.

Special mention has to go to the road crew who blatantly lied when they called in that the motorist was weaving in and out of traffic, even though he was parked on the side of the road the entire time.  Isn't filing a false police report a crime?

"Can we take him in for something?"

For what, not respecting your authoritah?

What a textbook abuse of power.  That first officer should be immediately taken off the street if this video is any indication of how he deals with the public he's supposed to be "serving" on a daily basis.
