You seem to have the righteous indignation of youth. Never lose that....but this thread isn't about what's right or just, its about surviving an encounter with a law enforcement officer.

See my quote above, and like I said, what makes a cop better than myself. If I need to scratch then that is my right, and doesn't mean i need to have a gun pointed at my head, forced on my knees, and handcuffed like I am a criminal. Ever heard or due process? Innocent until proven guilty? Forgive me if I am wrong, but your post leads me to believe you are or have been a leo.
And a leo has no reason to murder someone when a taser could be just as affective. And can be drawn in the same amount of time.

Cops see people at their worst and they can't assume the person isn't getting ready to shoot them. They have to stay in a state of hyper vigilance.
