Well once again its a case of "public calls 911 before the police shows up". Since some people felt the guy was threatening. So the officers are correct to go in there with guns drawn.
Im pretty sure the cop hasent been standing there for 8 years.....You know, since the picture was taken in year 2012.
This is why I think Donald Trump will win a second term. Those who are outraged move from topic to topic. today's story is Twitter is mad at Terry Crews. Now the people who were protesting will forget cops and target Terry Crews.
It's not like The Troubles were a thing there, mate.
Just found this on Reddit (although its nearly a year old).
Is this justified in this case? It's obviously not as extreme as shooting/murdering unarmed civilians but I can't imagine this going well in the UK, in fact I don't even think most police officers in Britain are routinely armed with tasers, only Northern Ireland police are routinely armed with guns.
Just asking for some American perspective.
