Police Employee Involved: Officer Hunter/Deputy Wardy (badge numbers not given)
Police Employee Contact Information: (877) 275-5273
This interaction occurred on June 21, 2014 on or around 2:31 am in the City of Huntington Park, CA.
Furthermore, when asked for a simple explanation of what was going on, Officer Houston stated he was not obligated to answer. I explained that as a public servant to our community, we the people have the right to know. He proceeded to state, “I am not a public servant. We provide a service to the public.”
In addition, he was nice to some extent. The video goes on, and as we noticed officer Houston getting agitated we decided to walk away in fear that we might have been assaulted, arrested and harassed, maybe even shot.
The video lighting was off as the officer did not want the light in his face.
We proceeded to go about our way, and I won’t give out too many details on how, but ten minutes later we were in the house.
