A federal lawsuit accuses Hammond police of "malice" and "reckless indifference" when they smashed a car window and used a Taser on a passenger during a traffic stop last month.
But Hammond police, in a two-page rebuttal, said they resorted to force only after the passenger repeatedly refused to leave the car and kept reaching toward the back seat, prompting fears he may have had a weapon.

Thanks BH, for posting that, I got some issues to deal with here at work all of a sudden.
My entire office is outraged by this, even the ones who felt the man/women deserved to be arrested!
One of my workers just mentioned jokingly(he is black), that if anyone in the office doesn't want to be seen with him driving to job sites out of fear of being pulled over by the police, he would understand. Nobody should be afraid to drive down the road with their family in this country. What has happened?
