It feels like every time I turn on the TV or pick up the paper, I see two or three cops trying to cuff someone who has broken the law; they are down on the sidewalk or on the side of the road, messing up their clothes, which they have to pay to have cleaned.
Solution: When the cop says stop, stop and wait for his next order. If it is to put your right index finger on your nose, then do so and wait for the next command. If you do not obey, he should fire his taser. If that doesn’t bring a solution, he should move up to the next gun.
Why do we buy all this equipment for the cops, and then watch him being dragged all around on the ground trying to put handcuffs on some person?
When the cop says stop, everything in hearing distance should freeze and wait to see what the situation is.
Never miss a local story.
Then at the end of his shift he can go home, still looking nice, and say to his wife and kids, “I had a good day.”
