Video of Cop Brandishing Gun at Snowball Fight

Around 2.30PM on Saturday, December 19, during a historic snowstorm, residents at the intersection of 14th and U Streets NW started throwing snowballs at passing Hummers.

One of the cars pelted was driven by a plainclothes police officer identified only as Det. Baylor. Baylor got out of his car and brandished his gun at the crowd.

Reason.tv's Dan Hayes was on the scene, capturing the tense confrontation between police and citizens who chanted "Don't bring a gun to a snowball fight!"

Approximately 5 minutes; harsh language throughout.

    How long will it be before another psycho cop slays people for something trivial like this? Why are they giving people like this guy badges and guns?

    Provocation by those throwing snowballs, was enough to get the Detective's attention, throwing a snowball at an officer is "attempted assault on an officer of the law" and to stop the lawbreakers and, Therefore he had the right to use force including unholstering his weapon for self defense.
