Nearly every American citizen carries a camera in their pocket at all times, assuming they own a cellular phone. With such easy access to surveillance equipment, police officers have never been under such public scrutiny. Shakey phone cameras across the nation have revealed the best and worst in our officers. What makes Tyler Russell’s photo above so special isn’t the officer in frame, but the man holding the camera.
Russell sent the image along with the following image to the Facebook page Ohio Going Blue,
“To the sheriff deputy outside messing with his cruiser what you didn’t know was I sat in this parking spot watching over you watching your back I got your 6.

Stay safe sir.
