Im not buying the warrant for traffic warnings confrontational one on one showdowns.
It sounds too personal.
Just catch him speeding and write him a ticket.
Regardless of if a warrant was issued or not, if the officer was responding to a call, no warrant was needed.
So far we have a cop on a guys property without a warrant. Let's read on:
In police custody, the alleged gunman, 46-year-old George Hitcho Jr, said he had told Mr Lasso to get off his property and [color=limegreen]not come on unless he had a warrant, authorities said.
OK, so far we have a police officer on a mans property without a warrant, and then he points a tazer at the dogs and points either a gun or a tazer in the mans face. It gets worse:
'[color=limegreen]He tried to kill my dogs and [color=limegreen]pointed a gun in my face,' Hitcho said, according to the documents. 'I do not care if you a cop or not ...Unbelievable.'
So let's review. We have a cop on a mans private property without a warrant who points a weapon (either a gun or tazer, weapon isn't identified by the guy) at the mans face, and then points a tazer at the mans dog with the intentions to shoot his dogs by request of the police chief.
[color=limegreen]Police Chief George Bruneio, who arrived after Mr Lasso requested assistance, [color=limegreen]instructed him to 'shoot the dogs' and that's when the homeowner pulled out a shotgun and fired, authorities said.

Just as unnecessary as the death of Oscar Grant. Cuffed unarmed yet still shot in the head with a gun.
On November 5, 2010 Mehserle was sentenced to two years, minus time served. He served his time in the Los Angeles County Jail, occupying a private cell away from other prisoners. He was released on June 13, 2011 and is now on parole.
