A video circulating on social media shows a man pointing a gun at a St. Lucie County sheriff’s deputy’s cruiser.
It is raising concern with other law enforcement officers.
In the video posted to Snap Chat, one man is seen shooting a hand gun in an open field. Later, he and another man are seen driving in a car, drinking a beer and one of the men points a handgun at a St. Lucie County cruiser while laughing.
“They don’t take this seriously. They don’t take this behavior seriously,” said Luis Blasco, President of the Fraternal order of Police Lodge 50 in Palm Beach County.
Blasco has been a law enforcement officer for more than a decade. He finds the video reckless and disrespectful.
“It’s becoming the norm which is sad. It’s very sad,” Blasco said.
The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office identified the two men in the video, but have not released their identities as they are not facing any criminal charges.
