I'm not saying that it wasn't an unlawful detainment, just pointing out that the basic practice of an officer going and talking to someone isn't unlawful in itself. I think the PPD representative carefully chose his words as to not lie but give the impression that the action was lawful.

Admittedly, I only made it to the portion of the video where the officer decided to ramble about tactics, but in that time the person never asked if he was free to leave, tried to leave, or asked whether or not he was being detained or under arrest for something.

It doesn't make the officers actions any less dubious, but if one is in a locale where officers are known to harass OC'ers it's to one's benefit to know the laws pertaining to encounters with LEO and exercise that knowledge.
