When the person is obstructing justice, yes.

The term "disrupt lawful processes" can be used to justify the police actions.

I agree the actions of the police in the way they handled the situation were wrong, but have any of you had a child killed by a speeding driver?

Back in the day when I did a lot of travelling there used to be signs warning of speed traps ahead.
There should be more of them.
And as to the flashing lights - it used to be that when driving at night and you were coming up on a car moving more slowly than you were, you would flash your lights to let him know that you were going to pass him.
In November of that year, John Moore, senior research associate at the National Youth Gang Center based in Tallahassee, stated that to the best of his knowledge the "Lights Out" legend is completely false: "I know of no incident in the country where this type of thing occurred," he told a reporter for the Washington Post. "This is one of the wonders of the Internet, that you can take something that has no basis in fact and make people believe it." Nevertheless, probably because they fear the possibility of copycat outbreaks, some law enforcement agencies still recommend that motorists play it safe and refrain from flashing their headlights when driving in areas where gang activities are known to occur.

Anyway, if you aren't speeding, what's the problem ?
