VIDEO: Watch how a Maryland Cop Violate's a Man's Constitutional Rights

Cop claims he was just doing his job.

The Baltimore County cop had seen the young man in court not too long ago, so he approached him and demanded his identification, telling him he needed to check him for warrants.

But John Holt Jr. was doing nothing to raise suspicion that he was committing a crime.

Instead, he was simply walking into a store with his fiancee when the cop stopped him and demanded his identification.

The man's fiancee began recording and the cop acted as if he was doing nothing wrong. Holt posted the video on his Facebook page stating the officer was a witness in his case, but did not specify anything about his case.

"I think you may have a warrant," Baltimore County police officer H.R. Persuhn said. "Because I've dealt with you before."

But that is still not grounds to demand a person's identification in public. You do not permanently lose your Constitutional rights just because a cop has "dealt with you before."

Holt accused him of harassing him, which the cop denied.

"It's not harassment, it's called, I'm doing my job," Persuhn said.

And when Holt continued complaining, the cop ordered him to lower his voice, accusing him of causing a disturbance.

But the video shows Holt was hardly talking louder than the cop. Had he whispered, the cop would have had issue with that as well.

The cop was doing nothing more than fishing, thinking he had an easy target in Holt.

At one point, Persuhn loses his cools and gets into Holt's face, telling him to stop talking loudly, but it's clear he was just angry that Holt did not bow to his authority in seconds.

Definitely Loco, "protohuman?" what a complete moron you are. That was certainly a violation of his constitutional rights bordering on harassment like the man stated. Finally, when defending the culture from whence you hail; you too use the 1st person plural pronoun, "WE" . . . . . duh.

It was stated: "Most cops come from military backgrounds and cannot make the transition to dealing with civilians." When in the military you're taught "there's us... and there's them. It's either us... or them. We stick together so "them" no longer are." As was stated by "Tree Of Liberty"... seeing a lot of "Badge Bully Cops" are ex-military, it's no wonder their attitude of "shooting first... and asking questions later" prevails among them.

The police in 2018 are out of control Here are some rules for dealing with them As stated by Supreme Court justices You have civil rights...USE THEM Never open your door for police Unless they have a signed search warrant Have them put warrant under the door and Make sure it is signed and the Area and things to be searched are written down Finally never let police in your home NEVER NEVER WITHOUT A WARRANT Never talk to police...EVER Never give your ID unless lawfully arrested NOT DETAINED...ARRESTED Cop must have reasonable articulable suspicion of a crime To identify you. "You are suspicious" is NOT a crime. " I was called here" means nothing They will always give the excuse "we were called here" as if that means something But it means NOTHING Always say "am I being detained or am I free to go." Do not let the cop hem and haw repeat the question Until he answers whether you are detained or free to go If he says you're free to go say good day and walk away Politeness is not going to help Walk away even if he is still talking

If you are driving a car and are stopped and the cop says you know why I stopped you say “NO.” Remember when DRIVING a car you must ID. If sitting in your car parked it’s as if the car isn’t there. He must arrest to gain your ID And Passengers NEVER NEVER ID unless arrested.

NEVER FORGET COPS ARE LEGALLY ALLOWED TO LIE TO YOU AND MAKE UP LAWS THAT DO NOT EXIST IN ORDER TO TRAP YOU NEVER NEVER BELIEVE WHAT A COP SAYS, HE HAS BEEN TRAINED TO LIE YOU ON THE OTHER HAND CAN GO TO JAIL FOR LYING TO A COP SO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT

Cops are trained to control situations. And when they cannot i.e. videographers, their brain chemistry cannot compute this. Most highly intelligent people are able to take a situation different than their training and come up with a plan of action. Many Cops are not intelligent enough to take different facts and come up with a plan so they revert to aggression and violence. Most cops come from military backgrounds and cannot make the transition to dealing with civilians.

Thomas Jefferson said, " sometimes the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants." H.R. PERSUHN is a tyrant. His loss to policing will be a gain for the citizens of Baltimore County.

It is rambunctious that the cop attempts to violate his constitutional rights.
