Film The Police, meets power trippin Parole Officers from Sherriffs Office

Portland Parole Officers treat copwatching videographer rudely.
Film The Police (FTP) gets a flashlight pointed at their camera, and Parole supervisor plays hide n seek with identifying who his agents are when asked respectfully by cameraman.
[Obvious] lack of training is evident with Portland Parole Officers / Sherriff's in this FTP video filmed in downtown Portland Oregon in April 2014

The 'Whole World Is Watching' how they interact and hide from accountability.
