Re: Was this much force justified?
I thought the cop was justified in his use of the taser.
I can't conceive of actng that way towards a cop if I get pulled over. If I get pulled over, I've already got my registration and license out, hands on the wheel, and it's yessir nosir. And I usually know what I've done. I figure the more I cooperate, maybe I'll get off with a warning.
Is this the escalating protocol that police use for a situation like this? She was pulled over for minor traffic offenses. Does the recalcitrant behavior trump the minor stuff?
