The clip begins with the police helicopter making numerous over flights of the woman as she films the chopper.
The helicopter then shines a light in the direction of the woman as it hovers lower and prepares to land. The chopper lands and the pilot, an officer with the San Bernadino Sheriff's office, approaches the woman and asks her what she is doing.
"Just exploring and picking up rocks," the woman responds.
The cop then demands the woman's ID to which she responds she doesn't have any. When the woman asks why he is questioning her, the cop responds, "We're investigating something right now."
The police officer then proceeds to take the woman's name and date of birth in order to perform a criminal background check via his walkie-talkie.
After he gets a response from police headquarters, the cop asks the woman if she has any weapons, orders her, "don't put your hands in your pockets," and then proceeds to perform an unconstitutional search of her person.
"I know you're doing your job but I don't consent to a search," says the woman as the cop continues to rifle through her belongings.
The cop eventually walks back to the helicopter having nullified whatever threat a woman out in the middle of the desert posed to the safety of San Bernardino residents.
San Bernadino filed for chapter 9 Bankruptcy in 2011: This helicopter costs $2000.00 per hour to fly and that's just the fuel not the crews salary.
So basically the helicopter landed and harrassed her for no reason. She wasn't breaking any law so she wasn't required to provide the cop with any ID nor give her name he still demanded it anyway. Definitely shouldn't have been searched but she was. I guess we should just get used to being walked all over by these people.
