    "What was supposed to be a typical drive through a peaceful Shadyside neighborhood, turned into a standoff with a police officer threatening the life of a 7-year old girl, according one local mother." ...

    "'I said, 'What's the problem, officer?' and he said 'Get your hands up,' wrote Lawton in a prepared statement. 'He repeated, pulled out his gun and pointed into the passenger side of the window where my youngest daughter was trying to get her seatbelt off. So, I put my hands up.'"

    "According to Lawton, she and her children spent the next 20 to 30 minutes trying to convince Officer Eric Tatusko to put his weapon down or to at least go to the driver’s side to address the problem with the only adult in the car." ... ... es/36017/1

    I guess it is OK so long as it is for "officer safety." :roll:

    If I did that I would be in jail...

    If I had done that, the police officers who arrived next on the scene would've shot me...

    Why can a police officer act like this? The standard of behavior for our public servents should be higher than it is for the rest of us. It's disgusting.
