It always makes me wonder what people think when they say the cop should have used their taser insead of doing something else. If your son was unruly and intoxicated and it went as far as the Officer going hands on, then your son got what he had coming to him. Too many people want to judge what we do in Law Enforcement after the fact. Come do a ride-a-long in Durham sometime. See what the Officers that do a selfless job have to put up with. We deal with the most un-pleasant people at the most inopportune time. Were ridiculed, cursed at, occasionally spit on, ran from, and generally dealt with as if were the bad guys. Dont second guess what we do. Come see the filth and meet the degenerate people we have to work with on a daily basis before complaining that I may have had a tone in my voice that you did not like. If I have a nature about myself that gives off an "Im pissed leave me alone" attitude instead of bending over backwards for all of your wines and complaints, its so I can go home to my family at the end of the day. I do not give off any sign of weakness, because the day I seem week to those I deal with, it could be my last. So instead of second guessing what I do, how bout a thanks for going into parts of town you would not drive through without locking your doors!
