Cop Refuses Kid’s Request to See Badge Number, Asks 12 Year old Kid for ID

So what do you do when you see a police officer breaking those same laws you would get a ticket for? You get video evidence and ask for his badge number. At least that is what 12-year-old Jeremy Drew did when he saw a cop parked illegally and called him out on it.

“Is there a reason for you to park on the side walk, is it like an emergency or anything?”

The voice of the cop is difficult to make out but it seems like he is telling the 12-year-old he was just stopping for a drink. The officer had a large beverage in his hand. Huffington Post says the called out cop replied:

 “Because I can.”

Whatever answer the cop gave was not good enough for 12-year-old Jeremy Drew he asked the policeman if he could see his badge number.

“Why,” the cop asked.

“Uh, because I have the right to,” Drew replied calling the cop out on his illegal parking job.

“You do huh?” The cop asked with a touch of sarcasm in his voice.

Yep, officer illegally parked, he does.

The cop did not give up his badge number started his motorcycle and drove away.
