What is a Male Karen Called?

Today's video opens from the point of view of a driver who has been pulled over by a cop for speeding, according to the police officer. He's asking for the driver's license, as is typical when pulled over.  The cameraman is refusing to provide said license, due to... reasons, I guess, he just keeps repeating himself over and over, so it's hard to tell what his actual argument is.

Calling for Backup

At this point, the cop is getting agitated, and I can't blame him.  He grabs his radio from his shoulder and calls for backup.  That really should have been this guy's cue to just let him take a quick little peek at his license.

That Looks Expensive

The cop pulls out his baton like it's a lightsaber and gives the motorists one more chance to roll down the window.  The driver insists on seeing a supervisor like the Karen he is, and that's when it happens. SMASH! The window is broken, and he's getting pulled out of the car.  All that could have been avoided, brutha.

Tell it to the Judge

As he's dragged from his car being arrested, the man continues to say they have no right to arrest him. Well, that's for the court to decide now, my friend.
