A viral TikTok video captured what appeared to be a traffic stop interaction where an officer told the driver exactly what many policemen are likely thinking when they see an offensive bumper sticker on the car they pull over.
“If recording me makes you feel safer, that’s fine, I support you in doing that,” the officer said in the clip that one can only hope is real.
“But here’s what’s going to happen next. You’re going to do me a favor, and I’m going to do you a favor, so we can both go on about our day,” the officer explained in the video that has been viewed more than 117,000 times.
“What favor can I do for you?” asked the car’s occupant who appeared to be recording the incident.
The officer explained the first half of the deal in the TikTok video posted on Twitter, “You’re going to slow it down passing through here, we’ve got a lot of traffic.”
Then he explained the best part of the deal.
“I’m going to rip that Biden-Harris bumper sticker off the back of your car so people don’t think you’re an idiot,” the officer concluded before the video cut off.
Omg this guy👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

The epic video appears to have ruined some people’s post-election business plans as there is likely a huge market for removing Biden-Harris stickers from cars.
And after recent polls have shown there has been significant Biden remorse with one in five Biden voters stating they would change their 2020 presidential vote if they had the chance at a do-over, it’s not that far-fetched of a plan.
Man, that’s some major BS right there. I was going to start a business of removing Biden/Harris bumper stickers for $10 a pop. He’s cutting into my gig! And before you say no one will pay $10, remember, they did vote for Biden, so….

Others commended the likely fake officer for a job well done and suggested that this is kind of honest policing is how it should be done.
My faith in law enforcement is restored 😁

To others, it didn’t matter if the video was real because it was side-splittingly funny.
I hope this is real – because it’s spectacular
