Perhaps some post-traumatic stress got the best of this LAPD officer who snapped after a photographer took photos of him on the street. Shawn Nee, the blogger at discarted, just released an encounter caught on video from February with an LAPD officer in Hollywood who detained him for taking a photo of the officer.

"But that's not what the law is," Nee told the officer, noting they were on a public street.

"I do not care," responded the officer, who continued to rant, saying he was a veteran before using a gay slur to describe Nee. "You little fruitcake, god dangit, start moving. I swear my god dang ass fucking two years in the desert and I gotta hear from your fruitcake ass? Start moving!"
