“Absolutely Disgusting”: Watch Cop’s Reaction As Black Friday Shopper Makes a Scene; Claims He’s Being Harassed Like “Mike Brown”

You read that right, a shooting in Ferguson is somehow supposed to stop a police officer in Pennsylvania from seeing a receipt for merchandise bought at a local Wal-Mart. The subject, after making a total fool of himself, was allowed to leave with the items in question, even after not providing the receipt.


From TheBlaze:

When a man was detained on Black Friday and asked to prove that he had paid for his merchandise, he quickly got his friend to start recording and invoked the name of Michael Brown as he defended himself against the police.

The problem: as the video shows, the police officer talking to the shopper remains extraordinarily calm, even as the shopper yells at him and refuses to comply with his requests.

“He knows who I am,” the shopper says of the officer, claiming that he shouldn’t have to show ID because, “[the officer is] the arresting officer on one of my cases.”

According to the video description posted on YouTube, the officer is Michael Manfredi of the South Strabane Police Department in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

The officer has apparently been called to the Wal-Mart by the store’s security team, and he calmly follows the shopper to the parking lot as the shopper loudly refuses to hand the officer his receipt.

The shopper waves the receipt in front of the officer’s face, but he doesn’t allow the officer to hold the receipt or even take a picture of it.

Soon, despite no apparent aggression from the officer, the shopper starts running around the parking lot yelling at the top of his lungs.

“My hands are up!” the man starts shouting. “He’s trying to Mike Brown me!”

The police officer’s calm remains strong through the end of the encounter, when he allows the shopper to go free — even though the man kept refusing to let him hold the receipt.

The below video contains strong language and unfathomable stupidity:

At this point you’re either laughing so hard you can’t breathe, or you’re shaking your head in utter disappointment. Either way, this guy needs to learn the difference between a proper noun and a verb. Luckily, the video proves that the cop was in the right here, despite the yells of the subject.
