    I watched it too. It looked like the guy was respectful. The cop asked for ID and the guy complied immediately. I saw no overt signs for alarm or deception at all when I viewed it.

    Are cops so unused to compliance that they are suspicious of that too? Reacting when people actually do as they ask?

    Just so we are clear, asking something of others means there is a choice, while ordering them to do something means there is not.

    Sorry, cops don't 'ask' people do things, they order people to do things.

    He complied exactly with the officer's order. He didnt dive. He just didnt hesitate before complying....something cops complain about when they dont get.

    Now they cant handle *compliance?* Jeebus.

    People are surprised and often nervous when stopped by cops. Cops KNOW this. People react in all sorts of ways...babbling, shaking, over-reacting, fumbling, apologizing, etc etc. They see it every day.

    And your point is? I already wrote that elsewhere.

    Some states don't allow you to pump your own gas. Apparently they think people will blow themselves up.

    That's because cops have the authority to rob every single person they come into contact with of their freedom or violate their person like no other person in society. Government like police are the exception to everything moral and good.

    Another itchy trigger fingered white cop shooting another un-armed black man who had his hands up in surrender? ...
    20 years will not be long enough.

    You didn't say it there though. The police officer didn't ask the man for anything, but demanded he do what he was told or else.
