That's Not What The Law Said

The Salt Lake Tribune had an interesting story today about a motorist out on US-40 by Vernal who had the misfortune to run into a Utah Highway Patrol cop with an inferiority complex and a very, very short fuse. Like all smart motorists who have been mistreated, he filed a Freedom of Information Act query and got the dashcam to put it up on YouTube to let the world decide. I'd love to see this officer fired for what he did.

Update: The Deseret News has a much better article on it. They're right - YouTube posters have universally vilified the cop. I hope the very public pressure will get UHP to act quickly and decisively and nail this guy to the wall, lest they get sued by the defendant.
