Man arrested on suspicion of impersonating police officer at Black Lives Matter protest in Californi

A man who was recorded antagonizing demonstrators during a Black Lives Matter protest in January has been arrested on suspicion of impersonating a police officer.

Daniel Sohn, 36, was arrested yesterday by Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies after they noticed that he was wearing a shirt with the Los Angeles Police Department logo and recognized him as the man in the video, authorities said in a press release.

The video posted on social media last month shows an Asian man who appears to be wearing the same shirt and chanting "white power" to people. The group was protesting the fatal shooting in October of an unarmed black man by an LAPD officer inside a gym.

Sheriff's Deputy Joana Warren said Sohn told the deputies he regularly poses as an officer to get respect. Investigators were seeking additional witnesses who may have been told by Sohn that he was an officer, Warren said.

1. He poses as a cop to "get respect"?

He should try going around in a wheelchair he doesn't need.

It worked for Guy Caballero. That guy got RESPECT!

2. Thanks for posting! A sad, desperate bid for any kind of power and recognition for himself. ...

So many of these dysfunctional people are showing up via shootings, or acting like figures of authority, or participating in road rage incidents, etc. Curious if playing too many online games, sitting on the couch watching TV, playing regular (not online) games, living in a 'fake' world created by all of these activities has
created a false impression of what life and society should really be?

Standing out in todays society via ones' jobs/careers or other means can seem hard. But it's (I think) because we see via online or other similar amazing accomplishments a lot of people that maybe for some of these people makes it harder and harder to accomplish anything so they feel extremely powerless, worthless, and left behind. A failure I think to adapt/move with society and times, and should have been addressed or caught by one's family etc. They effectively have been brainwashed.

Most people adapt and adjust themselves and their lives accordingly. Life/society and the internet/24 hour news cycles/etc. have all caused interactions within society to move increasingly faster and faster and some can be left behind and left feeling lost and thus lash out. The smart ones (most of us) ignore the hustle and bustle and forge on, and live our lives anyways in the best manner we can, like we're doing now.

Just my opinion, but actions like this does make one wonder. That's one of the reasons I interact with DU, am constantly engaging with friends and others on a regular basis, etc. You have to discipline yourself and interact, go out, etc. and keep yourself active and busy, thus remaining healthy. Otherwise...

Be safe.
