Because a man dared to ask why he was being pulled over, a state trooper held a gun to his head to force compliance.
'Lewes, DE — A disturbing video was brought to the attention of the Free Thought Project this week showing a Delaware State Trooper point his gun at the head of a man over a stop for an alleged speeding ticket. Luckily for the victim, Mack Buckley, he was not shot and decided to film this interaction, catching his assault with a deadly weapon on video.
The incident took place last week as Buckley was driving to his mother’s home in Lewes. According to Buckley, as he was travelling down the highway, he passed the trooper travelling toward him in the opposite lane, who did a u-turn after they passed each other and began following him.
The trooper never turned on his lights and for two miles, according to Buckley, he simply followed him. Eventually, the officer turned on his lights and stopped him for allegedly speeding.
Buckley explained that the trooper, who he identified as Corporal O’Neil with Troop 7, argued with him for 2 to 3 minutes over why he was stopped. When Buckley tried to record, he says the trooper told him he couldn’t. This immediately set off alarms which made Buckley want to film even more.
Buckley admits that he was questioning the officer and said he didn’t want to give him his license and registration until he told him why he was pulled over. That’s when, according to Buckley, the trooper demanded he get out of the car. Buckley, still wanting to know an actual reason as to why he was pulled over, said, “no.”
At this point is when Buckley starts filming. Buckley tells us that the officer took a call on his radio after Buckley refused to exit the vehicle, and so he had a chance to start recording.'
