    The professor interviewed has it right - either not trained, trained improperly, and/or entirely unsuited to be a Peace Officer.

    Was the cashier going to stick up for the guy if the cop hadn't asked if he paid? The cashier should have told the cop to leave for harassing customers.

    The cashier would have then been party to the "crime"...

    No badge, crazy guy draws a weapon over a $1 piece of candy and the $8/hr clerk is going to shout/lecture him. Wow, what color is the sky in your world?

    If he's willing to pull a gun over a $1 item - granted, a crime is a crime - I wonder how low his bar is for pulling the trigger? I think he needs some remedial training.

    I wonder what would have happened if a lowly mortal had pulled a gun in this situation?

    He acted properly. You are not highly trained law enforcement professionals. Don't ask questions. Just listen to the pro's and do what they say.

    I cracked up when he cocked the gun. Then I realized it appears he was pocket-carrying, which kind of explains and excuses the gun not being cocked.

    Apparently the Chief said a) we're investigating, b) wont tell the name of the officer, c) asserted that the weapon was never pointed at the citizen, and d) has subsequently taken down his tweets and FB posts about this due to the HUGE outcry against what many were calling "lies" and "coverup".

    BTW, the citizen says very clearly in reply to the "Chief" that the weapon was indeed pointed at his groin. That also appears to be the case when looking at the video.

    I said nothing about shouting at him. I'm not sure why you chose that word.
    I think the clerk believed the man was an officer after he went on his tirade about the candy and asked the patron to take his money and leave. I don't need a certain amount per hour to defend someone who is being harrassed by the police. I don't want you to insert more words in the escalating fashion you did earlier and so I'll explain what I mean by "defend"
    I mean simply saying "He paid for it" before the officer asked.
    I don't mean jumping the counter and attacking him with a knife.
    I watched to video again to be sure. I'm sure.

    The reason that people who do what you suggest get reported in the news is because its so rare.
