Poll results are interesting. 3 people for each option.
I don't blame all cops, I know there's good ones out there, and they do a hard job, but the ones with the attitudes are a huge problem.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

From what I researched the law in Washington State regarding signing a ticket, the law was changed in 2006 where the person being issued a ticket was not required to sign the citation. She refused to get out of the car. That is not required in this for issuance of a ticket. If such is the current law then the use of the tasers was excessive and police procedure should come into question.
The body of the law is as follows:
http://apps.leg.wa.gov/documents/bil...%20S5393.2.pdf"Sec. 1. RCW 46.61.021 and 1997 1st sp.s. c 1 s 1 are each amended
to read as follows:
(1) Any person requested or signaled to stop by a law enforcement officer for a traffic infraction has a duty to stop.
(2) Whenever any person is stopped for a traffic infraction, the officer may detain that person for a reasonable period of time necessary to identify the person, check for outstanding warrants, check
the status of the person's license, insurance identification card, and the vehicle's registration, and complete and issue a notice of traffic infraction.
(3) Any person requested to identify himself or herself to a law enforcement officer pursuant to an investigation of a traffic infraction has a duty to identify himself or herself((,)) and give his or her current address
((, and sign an acknowledgement of receipt of the notice of infraction))stricken from law in bold..

People refuse to acknowledge that police are on duty in every state, in every town 24hrs a day 7days a week 365 days a year...how in the hell can there not be some bad cops and how can there not be mistakes made...
Look at the size of the military and the discipline and rules they are under...and we all know some soliders make mistakes...
