stories like this, it has nothing to do with actually crappy cops with crappy attitudes or with cops who don't do their jobs in minority neighborhoods or any of that. It's just about people who fight authority.
What a crock of ****.
The only argument you can make, which I agree with by the way, is that it's irrational to generalize about cops being all bad based on the few bad ones that ruin their name. However, you cannot argue that people have a problem with cops just because they "fight all authority" and not because they have legitimate reasons to dislike them based on their own experiences.

They handled it the way they felt best, and we... as usual, lol... are second-guessing them without the benefit of knowing all the details. Any way you slice it, the entire situation was completely her fault, and her fault alone.
These are basically your options: Yank her out and throw her to the ground; mace her; hit her with the baton; tase her.
