CHICAGO, Ill. — A contentious video out of Illinois has those searching for equal accountability of police sighing with relief.

A YouTube video posted by a trucker named Brian Miner captured an exchange between a trucker and an Illinois State Trooper. The trooper tells Miner he was being pulled over for unlawful use of the horn. However, Miner rebuffs him, saying he honked at the trooper who was allegedly on a cell phone while speeding.

It’s not until Miner tells the trooper that he is being recorded that the trooper’s demeanor dramatically changes. In the end, the trooper apologizes for speeding, saying he wasn’t paying attention.

What do you think of the video? Should the trooper be reprimanded?

    NEVER try that on an officer when you're not recording it. They do not think it's funny to be caught breaking laws, and will not be as polite as this officer was about it. Trust me.

    Incredible! This was a perfect example of how some individuals in positions of authority abuse the power they are given. Thank God we are in a country where the founding fathers understood the nature of humanity. This was simply amazing. That said, the police officer saw that he was wrong and did the right thing.
