Maybe I am missing something because i am failing to understand what happened here.
Cop stops the guy for _____________? (missed it)
Now once the guy is stopped I understand asking for ID, and running his name.
But then the guy is arguing about ___________? (missed it)
Did they call the guys name in? (missed it)
Guy tries to walk away. (Is this illegal if you are not under arrest?)
Cop starts putting his hand on the guy. I guess this goes to the last question, I guess if the guy is not allowed to walk away the cop can restrain him, but pushing and provoking the guy into a fist fight on the street?

The problem is starting at the point of contact, it's starting with the police. We should address it there, not on the backend where the officer has even more power over the citizen as their testimony is ALWAYS given greater weight.
It's not a even playing field.
"Opportunity does not come knocking. It is usually running down the street, you have to chase and tackle it." - Sheriff David Clarke, Milwaukee County.
