Now I was thrilled the cop was nice enough not to give me a ticket. The cop was certainly within his right to give me a ticket because I deserved it. The cop also very well could have gave me the warning in a very nice gentleman like manner witout the rude vulgarity that he used towards me but I was a big boy and I kinda got over it because I was not stuck with having to pay a ticket. Sadly there are many people out there in todays world that would probally go ballistic on the cop or at the very least file a complaint against him for using such horrific language in their presence, even though the cop like the umpires we have been discussing was doing them a favor by not giving them a ticket.
Like I said in the post above, no more warnings. Just eject.
You're completely skirting over the issue that their actions are incongruous with diffusing the situation...
