    Maybe, maybe not, your scenario is imaginary so we'll never know.

    Have you even read my posts in this thread? How many people do you think have a problem with strip searches or cavity searches? I'm going to guess a huge chunk of the population. Are both of those legal for police officers to do? Yes.

    You have an interesting take on what constitutes professionalism.

    Why is this so difficult to understand over there? Is it unnecessary repetition? Perhaps somewhat especially more frequent against the black population maybe?

    Their use of pre-emptive force was apropriot in this instince. Other cops in other situations might not use force correctly. It all depends on the facts of a given situation.


    Strictly speaking, calmly putting handcufs on a compliant person is "violence", its the use of phisical force even if no one is harmed, so yes "violence" is apropriot to effect an arrest. More violence becomes apropriot as the person resists. This man resisted enough to justify a tazing.
    but jerry you engaged me I did not engage you..i comment on what the cops said...that's all I did.

    it is stupidity for the cops to say " we were "violent".......you would never use that word.....it means intent to harm., and what made it even worse is to say , it for someone running away.

    cops are always at a disadvantage, because they cannot use violence, unless it is used first on them.

    You have a few options. Write your state representative. You can start a protest campaign and bring your situation into the public eye. You can move out of the state. All of these are much better then getting shot over something that really is not that big of a deal and can be handled in a more mature manner.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    I have a common take. Both cops that I could see in the video conformed to all ethical standards. Mr. Lollie is responsable for escalationg the situation, and the police were correct in their responcees to his behavior. That's professionalism.
