    Dinosaur I'm not picking on you when I ask this. Ten or 15 years ago would we have asked ourselves "were all 3 a threat"? I don't think that I would have. I would have assumed that the officer did what he needed to do.

    I just wonder if all of the anti police crap that is shoved down our throats daily has made us question events that we wouldn't have questioned before? Do we no longer automatically assume that the police did what's right?
    You are right! At least partially. I never used to question police. But I was young, and naive. Now, with experience, I don't trust any government employee with any authority or set of rules that are different than what is applied to me. And I didn't need any "anti police crap" shoved down my throat. All I needed was a few interactions with government authority. I gotta agree with @Big Dummy on that.

    And it ain't just the police, but each and every one working in government who thinks they have power and authority.

    Government employees as a group I have to agree. Each one has a little kingdom & each one makes it a point to let you know that they rule that kingdom.
    But police I look at differently. Over the years I've had lots of interactions with them & I mean lots. As a kid (& in fairness even now) I had a heavy foot & was often pulled over. (I think that my name should be on the freeway just over the border from Oklahoma going into Texas. In each & every case I was polite (& guilty as hell) & I never had a bad experience other than the money that it cost me. I'd have to say that to me the police were the cream of the crop when it comes to government employees & I do trust them.

    Now on the other side of that I know that if I were an ass to a Texas policemen things would go south very quickly because they don't take shit. And everything that would follow would appear a legal response (one way or another).
