98. Sad
This is a symptom of 30 years of the drug war and thug tactics being taught by police schools. Since when did deadly force become an option for police when someone disobeys a command? It's led to so much police brutality and you see it evident at OWS rallies. Police should use force to stop a threat, they are now using force at the drop of a hat because some one didn't listen to them or maybe just gave them attitude. It's the training, they are being trained to brutalize people who speak their mind.
