When will people understand that a police officer must feel in complete control and in charge of every situation at all times. COOPERATE. Things will always go more smoothly for you. Tasers don't work as well on the obese, because fat impedes the current, so fat people usually must be tasered repeatedly. The water in lean tissue conducts electricity, but oil is not conductive.

Police are supposed to protect people. This woman repeatedly said that she was afraid of the man that she had called 911 about. When an abused person is confronted by abusive people, even the police, they have a hard time telling on the person they are most afraid of. Wow. The police really do need courses in how to treat people that have been abused, before the police lose the trust of everyone everywhere. I assume they felt rightous in their actions, most abusive people do. This is a terrible mark for all police. I hope they never have priviledges of power again.
