Post Cop stopping in front of u 
Is this reasonable can a cop slam on his brakes in front of u then he walks back to the car behind them and gives them several citation for doing nothing and also cites for 2 of the same things not using turn signals. He did have on his lights but I thought they had to be behind u due to the camera

It is safer for an officer if he or she is behind the target of their stop rather than directly in front of it, but it is not required. An officer may issue a citation for any traffic violation that he/she witnesses. The offense does not have to be directly within the scope of or captured on the squad camera. And, yes, you may be cited for each violation even if they are the same offense.
