That is incorrect sir. A reactionary gap is the distance someone can cover before the average human being can react to counter it. This applies to everyone around the officer- not just when he/she is doing riot control or attempting to direct & control a dynamic mob/crowd. This does not mean everyone is kept that far away however... There was a previous negative interaction with the woman prior to her starting her camera. What that was I do not know but it was enough to make the officer uneasy and for him to be concerned about her proximity.

How is it off topic? You guys think its retaliation for what happened with the woman video taping. How can you say its retaliation? Did the cops say we are writing tickets because your neighbor video taped us? How do you know that they weren't writing tickets to everyone in the city and not just that neighborhood?

It sounds like they are doing the ticketing to turn the neighborhood against her. Not a bad tactic if you ask me. But I wouldn't want someone who deliberately provokes the police and breaks laws in my neighborhood either.edit on 25-6-2011 by TDawgRex because: (no reason given)
