According to Victor Fiorillo at phillymag.com, the 28-year-old woman had been thrown out of Helium Comedy Club during a performance by Craig Robinson, best known for his role as Darryl on the TV show “The Office.” No matter how good Robinson was Sunday, the performance of the night was out on the street and came from this police officer.
Despite all of the ugly things Colleen Campbell has to say, the officer only arrests Colleen Campbell when she really leaves him no other choice. And even after putting her in cuffs, the officer totally ignores Campbell’s escalating taunts.
If the rest of the world had the temperament of this officer it would be a better place. There’s a lot to learn from this video.
By the way, Campbell has experience performing before the camera. We learned this after the handcuffs are on her and she says to the officer, “I work at a fucking news station, motherfucker.”
Actually Campbell, if she had her wits about her, would have realized — as anyone who has viewed this realized instantly — that for the sake of accuracy she should have used the word “worked.” On Monday, WPHL-TV, where Campbell was employed as on-air “talent,” had scrubbed her from the station’s website.
