A resident in Gainesville, Florida called the local police department complaining about the noise a few kids were making in the street playing basketball. Officer White graciously checked out the pressing situation. At first, he sauntered up to a kid in a slightly intimidating way. That cop demeanor faded pretty quickly though, as evidenced in the dashcam video that, besides revealing that White is a chill dude, suggests the neighbor may have very sensitive hearing.
