Two young men filmed themselves pointing a gun at a sheriff’s deputy’s patrol car while driving down a Florida road. Then they posted the anti-cop video to social media.
The passenger of the moving car is seen sipping on a beer and laughing while he points a gun out the window toward a St. Lucie County police vehicle. He then posted the video to Snapchat.
“They don’t take this seriously,” Florida police officer Luis Blasco told WPTV.com about the young men. “They don’t take this behavior seriously.”
According to Blasco, this type of dangerous, hateful behavior aimed at police has become the norm in America and law enforcement is fearful of the trend.
“Social media has made it one-hundred times worse,” Blasco said, adding that it “glorifies” stupidity. (RELATED: Black Man Takes Selfie With White Police Officer, Urges Others To Quit Race Baiting)
The police were able to identify the two men, but decided to leave the punishments up to their parents.
