207. So the "walk right up" part is the onlt bit of your strawman you'll defend?
so lets use some common sense... he was "20 yards" away and could only hear the screaming cop but from that same distance, could hear another officer (over the screaming cop) tell him to KEEP walking????

Yes, let's use that common sense. He's about 20 yards away, can hear the cop yell at the guy, and another cop tells him to keep walking. The word "tells" does not convey any information about how loud the command was. So yes, the officer who told him that could certainly have been speaking in an elevated voice as well. I know I can certainly understand speech directed at me from 60 feet away, even with background noise.

But beyond all that, he certainly looks to be across a busy street from the scene when they came over to arrest him. The landmarks in the background should confirm this.
