I just came across the video and after viewing the Trooper Mark Coates video that someone posted I thought this might be a good one to discuss.
Now after viewing that what would any LEOs out there have to say and if this was just the common concealed carry citizen how would you react?
My question is wouldn't this be justified if the LEO had shot this man? I would say that kind of beating would meet the requirement for severe bodily harm.
Secondly, while I don't know the exact circumstances for the officer approaching the passenger instead of the driver, it would seem the officer just did not respond to it correctly. It may just be the fact of being caught offguard. I definitely wanna hear what any LEO would say as far as handling this scenario and how to train for this.
