First of all the general public doesn't consider that the officer needs a break and drink when time allows...next the officer doesn't always have the luxury of parking his motorcycle and walk any distance - separating himself from his emergency vehicle in case of an emergency or emergency call. His patrol vehicle needs to be close by...I commend the officer for not making it confrontational.

Wonderful world we live in. When I grew up I was taught to respect authority. Not blindly follow - but to respect it. The kid was just trying to give the officer a hard time showing his lack of respect.

The beginning stages of a home grown terrorist no doubt. Trying to provoke the Police.

ok 12 year old street lawyer go to school...im sorry your dad was arrested at some point in your life so you have some ill will towards all LE. and the title of the video makes it sound like he parked his bike in the middle of the front door like a a$$hole. this is not the case at all. the officer used a sound tactical technique to approach the store and kept it on the sidewalk to see it/get to it quicker should he need to.

It is sad to see how LE is treated and how children are raised. I would have never thought that this day would come.

The kid has to get his wings clipped. He is at the age where respect for authority is without question. One day he will need the help of a police officer and he better hope the police are there for him.

Yoo (12 year old) have a right to see his badge number when you pay taxxes you little shit.

Good going kid! What is good the goose is good for the gander!!! I respect authority, but not always the person with it! The kid was not rude or anything at all. Buckeye Police pull the same crap in AZ. They park infront of Wal-Mart in a firezone blocking a fire exit......

@Getum Your low IQ seems to prevent you from realizing there may be a need for officers to park close to a door, they need to keep their eye on their car/bike, they need to be able to get to it quickly....it's a retarded thought process or just a pure hatred of police in general that would make a person believe that they park by the front door because their on some sort of power trip.

I agree with dm. A blatant disrespect for authority. I could see if the officer was maybe parking his bike there to go buy drugs or pick up a prostitute. But he was going in to get a drink and then bail out to CONTINUE DOING HIS JOB PROTECTING LITTLE SCUMBAGS LIKE THIS ONE. If this kid is disrespecting authority and the law this early in life, I can only imagine what his future holds.

Also, after viewing the video on youtube, I started reading the comments. It's amazing to me how much disrespect the general public has for it's police force. These people put their lives on the line every day to protect you @ssholes. The least you could do is show them some respect. You want to piss and moan when they do something you think they shouldn't, but you'll be crying bloody mary when you actually need their help. Ugh. Americans make me sick sometimes.

He could have done better handling that, but at least he didn't blow up.

With all these comments I cannot believe no one has caught on to the fact this is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! This is clearly in a Racetrac parking lot and the motor is parked near the door on the sidewalk. In my jurisdiction Racetrac and Quicktrip both request us to park on the curb near the doors when we visit to increase visibility on THEIR PROPERTY! And, since these are both national corporate chains, it makes sense they would approve of this at their other locations as well. Did the officer handle this correctly? Probably not. We all need to brace ourselves for more of these types of encounters and ensure we are doing what we should be doing at all times. However, as far as the parking goes he did nothing wrong.

That little punk needed to be brought home to mommy and daddy for some attitude adjustment !!!! Only kidding-- he probably got his training from his parents !!
