It is absolutely bizarre to me that this woman started filming. She also seems calm AF. I get like that too, but if my loved one was bleeding out
I'd be begging that cop to let me render aid or do it himself.
Cops voice is a pretty clear indication he either realized he made a big mistake or was too wound up to be in that sort of situation.
Bedlam pointed out cops know (in some places) if you have a CPL. I've only had one problem with it, and that was when I got a DUI. Having a nice
normal (not so normal) conversation with one cop, hand over my wallet, the other cop sees my CPL sticking out of one of the wallet pockets and sort of
flipped out, got weirdly aggressive for no reason asking if I was carrying. no Sir, IS THERE A GUN IN THE CAR!, No Sir, YOU BETTER BLARHGBLghghgh! I
just sort of stared at him in disbelief and the other cop (who was super nice about the whole thing and drove me home instead of to jail) took him
aside and clearly told him to go away. I get it, I'm popped for a DUI but I'm not sprawled out all over the road or at all combative. Nice cop
eventually cuffed me and put me in his car, then I realized I had a cuff key on my key ring from back in the day when I did LP and he just goes "It's
fine, but if you take off the cuffs I'm going to be really pissed." My ramblings here are to say that I do think some people aren't cut out for the
job. Some people can't read the situation right and make very dire mistakes as cops. Cops should seem impartial, empathetic, firm, professional and
use that verbal Judo. Doesn't always happen that way.
Article sure is sparse with information. I really don't trust statements from people that know the person that just had a confrontation with police.
They lie, they get lied to, they warp the truth and I understand it because they love that person and don't want it to be that persons fault.
At face value this is very sad, but don't take these things at face value.
There were a few things that made my BS alarms go off, and I can't really identify them. He calm demeanor of the woman I guess would be one, I would
be pretty sad if someone I was dating was that calm after I got shot 4 times. For some reason this actually struck me as a training video at first.
My advice is to be super polite, I think Bedlam said this but narrate what you do, do things slowly (I wonder if sometimes people get super jerky and
try to pull the wallet out fast to not irritate the cops which looks to the cops like they're trying to pull something else).
Pretend you're the cop. Don't do stuff that would scare you or piss you off. Is that right? No. That's human nature and a few months in an academy
isn't going to remove it from them. Cops aren't trained well. Everyone thinks cops are well trained at all these things. They are not. A psych
test isn't going to weed out the people who get frantic in certain situations, only those situations will weed them out sadly. It's not always
criminal or even negligent, people, including cops can make mistakes. Don't let them make a mistake.
