Then all Blacks are this.
All Whites are that.
All Asians do this.
All Arab do that.
All Christians think this.
All Muslims think that.
All Buddhist believe this.
All atheist believe that.
Do any of those statements ever turn out to be true? Not very likely. You can not let some bad seeds reflect on all policemen. Believing all cops are bad will just give more chances that you will end up with a bad situation if the police are present. Don't paint everyone with a broad stroke.

From the OP article...
"The driver ... refused to roll down the window," Schmdley said. "The officer was able to get the door open. The driver refused to get out of the vehicle. A struggle ensued [and] a Taser was employed by the officer."
Masters' friend, 17-year-old Curtis Martes, told Fox4kc.com that he was on his porch when the traffic stop occurred and heard Masters tell the officer he was unable to roll the window down.
So this was over not instantly obeying orders. Not about the officer feeling threatened cause they have such a dangerous job...
