Duncan Hicks was inside the Victorville Sheriff’s Station this month to file a report.
Unsatisfied with how the receptionist and deputy were handling it, Hick’s recorded part of the incident.
“He was very disrespectful, very rude to me,” Hicks said.
Hicks says this was his third time there and he also called once to file a few custody disputes with his child’s mother and says this time the deputy refused to write his report down and then took it a step further. Then a bizarre exchange played out.
Hicks: This is not explaining the incident sir.”
Deputy: “K, Duncan. You know what man? I’m about getting tired of you and you’re about to go to jail just so you know.”
Hicks: “What am I going to jail for?”
Deputy: “I’ll create something you understand? You’ll go to jail. You understand that?”
Hicks: “You can’t say that. How you gonna create something? That’s against the law.”
Deputy: “Recording me like that. That’s illegal without my knowledge. You want to go to jail for that too?”
Hicks: “You have a gun on your hip. I’m doing this for my protection.”
Deputy: “Uh, uh, you’re not starting that in my lobby.”
According to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department, audio/video recording in the station is allowed.
Sheriff John McMahon, released a statement that read in part: “Since viewing the video, our employees’ response to the citizen is not consistent with my expectation of customer service. Additionally, the deputy’s responses are not consistent with the interpretation of the law”

What a joke
These power hungry, lying, abusive scumbags just can’t fit into the profile of public servant
For far too long their power has gone unchecked and they have had an unfettered reign of terror across our nation
This, in the future, is coming to an end
They are being outed for who they are in the age of video
Day in and day out starting in grade school the good citizens of our nation are being exposed to their malfeasence
Still they try to fall back on “It’s just a few bad apples”
But that is no longer working
Not when there is overwhelming evidence to the contrary
