I did read the rest of the Wiki article on the case, but I still question whether there were any substantive and lasting improvements in Atlanta.

My late grandmother's morbidly obese Chihuahua scared a burglar into going through a closed window. Dog had some lungs on him.

In Pennsylvania, you are not allowed to resist an unjustified arrest by police . You are expected to comply and straighten it out later .

I imagine that resisting a murderous assault by police would be different

I find this to be deeply, deeply troubling. It serves no other purpose but to empower police to make arrests regardless of the evidence and/or guilt. It is a prophylactic approach to law enforcement that is akin to putting on a condom before you go out for a Saturday night.

What if this person has shot me in the abdomen, wounding me gravely? What if they have beaten and then shot repeatedly the person I was riding with? What if they are shouting in what appears to me to be an irrational manner and have shot the family pets? Do I have to wait for them to do actual physical damage before I defend myself?

With a random, non-uniformed person, whenever I legitimately feel "in fear of losing my life" I can defend myself with whatever means are available to me (knife, gun, severed limb).

At what point does the law permit me to exercise my right to an armed self-defense against a person wearing a uniform? Is there a particular law that makes uniformed persons a "protected class" or something?
Im going to go out on a limb here and say that if the uniformed officer has struck you with a baton, he has in his mind that you have deserved it.
Yanking out ones heater cant end well here as the officer will either say "abra hadabra your a corpse" or his uniformed buddies will come screeching in with long guns and small penises shooting first and asking questions later. Once it has been ascertained that uniform #1 was an idiot that made a blunder... your already a corpse..
However if after uniform #1 smites thee with his baton, you notice him pulling out another baton (not the twirling type) and muttering something about a "purdy mouth", then you know something is awry. :-)
