That was really cool for those kids to see.
What kind of impression do the cops think they are making on the next generation?

I know this is a hated idea, but there is another interpretation to what we saw. OK, I'll wait. Ready?
There are at least two gaps between the police deciding to make the stop and the events shown in the video. First, we don't know whether she complied readily. Second there was a large gap after the stop and before the filming started. There is nothing in the filming that contradicts the police statement.
You didn't read the police statement? Why not? It's linked to in the source article.
I don't see how any one can read the response and see this as a policeman gone amok. The police have their own film containing more of the incident than the one from the family. Sometimes the police do go bad. Sometimes events are edited to make it look as though the police went bad. This case? Looks, at first glance to be the passenger's fault.
Oh, and "completely compliant?" Not a chance in the world that he was. Unless the word "compliant" has taken on a new and opposite meaning.
Sremmos80 Police don't confuse a report written by an officer back at the station with a statement issued by the police department. This statement is more than one person's recollection, and the department knows they will be sued and had better not say anything they can't prove.
