Policeman in Gainesville behaves perfectly normally, video goes viral with 9 million views
Twitchy reports the NBC version has the high number of views. This version is from YouTube with less views than that.
Color me underwhelmed. The guy take a few shots and tells them to hold it down. There is no good reason for this video to be viral, but there you go. How odd, a police officer behaving as a normal human being.
When the kids see the policeman shoot they come out of the woodwork. It's cute. Adorable, actually. The original complaint was about all those kids making noise but we see only two, then boom, the whole area is full of them. They split when the cops came and watched, then came out when they saw it was safe.
So odd, so remarkable that Shaq O'Neil visits the place to congratulate the officer and relive this extraordinary moment with himself in it. How inspiring.
What the heck, he's got al day and his own plane, just go there and play, make it a celebrity healing thing for the whole nation, a healing of racial disunity.
Eleven YouTube videos on this subject with search [gainesville, police, basketball] That's the extraordinary part, not the policeman interacting normally.
