Top 5 Surveillance Videos of the Week: Driver Lights Firework, Protester Tosses It Back in Car

Other top surveillance videos of the week include an out-of-control Tesla, delinquent public service employees and much more.

The coronavirus has had a serious impact on our daily lives. Not even the top surveillance videos of the week are immune to COVID-19.

Due to much of the country (and world) still wary of being out and about in public, there is unsurprisingly a lack of new interesting surveillance videos. In order to make sure we can keep bringing you this weekly feature to help lighten the mood in these trying times, we will temporarily be reducing the number of videos from 9 to 5.

Now, on to this week’s top surveillance videos…

Protests across the country continue to take place in relation to the Black Lives Matter movement. While the majority of the protests and protesters are peaceful, there always seems to be a small group of agitators looking to stir up trouble  (see: looting).

Surveillance video released by police in California shows a car stopped in the middle of an intersection during a protest. The car’s driver gets out and lights a large firework. Protesters immediately take action to try and stop the act, with one of them tossing the lit firework back into the car.

Seconds later, the firework ignites, lighting up the car. A person in the passenger seat is able to escape just in time but a person sitting in the back isn’t so lucky. That clip is followed by acts of vandalism with police asking for any information about the perpetrators.

Also this week…

We probably see Teslas turn up in more surveillance videos than any other model car. Whether it’s a fail video, or footage of it flying, these futuristic cars sure seem to like the attention (not to mention the fact they even have their own built-in surveillance system).

This week, a man finds himself very lucky to end up unharmed after an out-of-control Tesla smashes into the back of his car — mere seconds after getting into it.
