We've been having a protracted discussion of this over at georgiapacking. This officer lost his mind.

The latest is that the LEO has been placed on unpaid leave during an investigation of the incident.

My take after watching the video is that the LEO was out of line and seems to have issues.

Lots of opportunities were missed by both LEO's. Serious training breakdowns and a distorted sense of reality on the part of LEO1.

LEO2 needed to reign in his partner and calm him down a bit. Sure they need to control the situation and the scene, but they do not need to dominate it to the point of exclusion of interaction with the driver.

Just a bad situation compounded by an LEO who thinks HE was the law. Everything he called the driver reflected back on himself through his actions.

Oops, update on the LEO. He had been "relieved of his duties" following the incident.

perfect example of the batman complex. people like those two officers should never be allowed to carry or own guns. they are obviously extremely unstable individuals and a clear and present danger to others.

not even fit to be mall cops on segways

Good to know.

While I support our LEO 100%, I don't think they need an officer like this who, IMHO, gives them a big black eye.

He sure handled it very well though and stayed calm, respectful, agreeable and even too apologetic.
