And.... Lost on almost everyone else is, this whole situation happened because of appeasement. Couldn't just stuff the thug into the car with people watching while he falsely complained about "claustrophobia." HAD to appease him and the crowd, and deviate from procedure. THAT is what led to everything that followed.
Truth.....there's a dark underside to policing and the truth is that it's ugly when someone is non-compliant.
I wouldn't even stop a car if I was a police officer in this environment. Crime is on the rise and criminals are getting more brazen knowing full well the police are on the defensive.
Burn it down....burn it all down. I don't give two shits.
