According to one of the comments on this YouTube video of an interaction between a police officer and resident, an investigation concluded that the police officer did nothing wrong.

Is that true?

    Welcome to Skeptics! Please link to which of the innumerable comments say this. Comments on YouTube generally aren't considered "notable" in isolation (e.g. another comment says Obama is a reptile). There's a big gap between your claim in the title and your claim in the question. – Oddthinking Feb 7 '17 at 9:35
  • @Oddthinking There are other sources such as "Investigation finds Rohnert Park police officer justified in pulling gun " pressdemocrat.com/news/4676869-181/pd-default-story-headline-xy and "Two days after a video went viral, showing a Rohnert Park police officer pulling a gun on a man for video recording him in public..." photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/08/06/… – DavePhD Feb 7 '17 at 12:36

    @DavePhD: So the second link could be used as a basis for "Did a police officer unholster his gun because a man was video recording him?" with the second link as the answer: No, an investigation found he drew his weapon because the man didn't remove his hand from his pocket. The first link could be used for the question "Did an investigation find that the police officer in this video did nothing wrong?" with an answer consisting, presumably, of a link to the report. – Oddthinking Feb 7 '17 at 12:51

    @Oddthinking maybe it's off-topic due to pending lawsuit: "Defendants deny that Officer Rodriguez approached plaintiff because of plaintiff’s recording." arstechnica.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/rhonertresponse.pdf – DavePhD Feb 7 '17 at 13:22
