The problemlies somewhere in the realm of patience and compulsive demand for compliance. I can't quite put my finger on it.
The officer ratchets up the demand very quickly. Its as though anything other than immediate submissive compliance annoys him. He makes absolutely no attempt to persuade the driver to comply, for example by gently or patiently reminding the driver that compliance is mandatory by law, or citing the consequences of refusal, etc.
And then having, escalated the situation well beyond necessity, he tasers and arrests the individual. Note that the taser isn't for his safety. Its to gain compliance. The driver doesn't seem to be threatening him.Isn't there something about using the force necessary to overcome resistance?Is there notalsosome concept about using only the level of force necessary?
Its almost as though, now that they have tasers,some officers resort to them almost immediately rather than other options.
Perhaps because such officersthink that people should just immediately comply with their every demand just because they are police officers, regardless of the individual's perceptions. Do they really think that citizens of a free country aren't going to voice protest or complain about something they perceive unjust? Meekly submit? Do they really think that citizens of a free country might not need a little verbal reminding thatthey have to comply? A citizen whoNEVER has to complywith such orders in daily life, except in the rareevent the order is coming from a police officer. Wouldit not be appropriate to make some allowances for such unfamiliarity based on the rarityof the situation?
Now I've put my finger on it. He gets mad because she doesn't immediately comply. He actually becomes angry. He loses control, not only of thesituation, but ofhimself.
