There are a lot of situations where a cop won't shoot cause they are worried it will effect there reputation though, aren't they? I mean here's a guy who's rep was ruined it seems, even though he didn't shoot, so can you imagine how much more his rep would have been ruined if he did?

There are likely tens of thousands of interactions between police officer and people everyday. The vast majority go as they should and that's a good thing.

We have to properly address the times it doesn't. It didn't here.

Yep that's true. One time I got stuck in the snow and a cop car drove by, stopped and helped push me out. But you don't see those videos going on youtube or to the media, for all to see unfortunately.

But yes, we do need to address the times it goes out of line.

Pointing out bad cops doesn’t mean they are all bad. No one should get defensive or protect cops who are terrible at their job.

He wasn't a bad cop. How do you come to that conclusion based on one interaction? In fact, I thought I heard the officer was on the force 14 years without any complaints.

Second he was responding to a report of a suspicious person, he had to ask the proper questions. The guy being questioned, had a major attitude problem , swore and refused to comply. Yeah he was cleaning and he looked innocent but he should have toned it down a bit and complied.

But pointing out bad blacks has meant all blacks are bad, as is the reason for this situation and others like it.

I thought the guy did comply though. He answered the question of who he is, but he doesn't have to keep talking to the cop for who knows how long, and has the right refuse to comply after answering the questions the cop initially sought out. But I think the cop should have called it case closed at that point as well. He asked him who he was, the guy answered, no sign of any crime in progress, so just leave and move on.
