I told him I was speeding a bit, but hadn't noticed until I saw his lights.
It states “f the officer is resisted before he has used needless force and violence, he may then press forward and overcome such resistance, even to the taking of the life of the person arrested, if absolutely necessary.” Id. at 313, 34 N.E. at 969 (emphasis added). If the officer is being resisted, then the officer can use any force necessary, up to and including deadly force.

OH HELL no I look like I sound here, I do EXACTLY what the officer says as BEST and as slow as I can...
Last time I got pulled over the first thing I said to the officer was "I carry a firearm sir" and tell them where on my body it was.
Cop didn't even blink and told me " I don't want your pistol, I want you to get your break light fixed".
Gave me a verbal warning and I promised to fix it.
If you are respectful my experience has always been pretty positive.

The only folks that want to resist have something to resist for. Or some kinda "I can sue mentality" . Or they are really stupid and thinking they are above the law.

Yes we get it, never ever argue or resist what a cop tells you to do, always be polite and comply. Just pretend you are dealing with a short tempered and highly agitated child that will not accept no for an answer and you will be just fine.
