NONE of us were there.

I would not want to be a police officer today. Too many cameras to take videos & upload to You Tube so the general public can criticise an officer(s)'s actions.
I have seen it first hand. A buddy of mine is a cop and we were hanging out talking in a gas station. This crazy guy around 50 years old 6'5 and a good 240lbs come running up yelling at him for having a gun. My buddy calmly told the guy to take a step back and calm down. The guy kept right on going, getting closer to his face. Finally my friend put the guy in custody, the guy was fighting back and was much bigger than my friend.

As he is coming out of the gas station someone is in their car filming them and yelling at the cop to leave the old man alone.

What they didn't know is my buddy has dealt with this guy before and his behavior was attributed to him not taking his meds. My buddy took him to the hospital, not jail because he is a threat to people when not on his meds.

People interfere with things that they have no clue about.

There are bad cops out there, there are cops that go overboard but the majority are just doing their job and do it the best they can.

We weren't but that guy was in no shape to hurt anyone. The cops actually looked kind of relaxed and nonchalant about the situation.

There was no need to sic the dog on him. They sicced the dog on him as payback.

This is why people are turning against cops. They are policemen not judge and jury.

We had a local cop that was ambushed at a gas station, he shot the guy like 9 times and the guy kept returning fire, it didn't end until the cop got a headshot. The guy was even shot straight through the heart and kept going.
