Why did the police tell the bystanders to let the guy up instead of just cuffing him on the ground?<quoted text>
Want more? I want something of substance. The police do not pass BS legislation like red light cameras. The police are charged with enforcing those laws. The police do not set speed limits, they due stop folks who ignore the limits. Had the opportunity to watch the police in action a couple of summers ago at a local watering hole. A man got in to an argument with his girl friend which soon turned violent as he started beating the crap out of her. Some of the patrons tried to stop him, he picked up a stool and started swinging it. Finally threw it thru a window. The patrons some what subdued him, the police came told them to let the piece of crap up and as soon as he was up he attacked the police. Did the police shoot him? No. Did they beat the crap out him with their night sticks? No. They tased the prick, he cried like the baby he was/is. They cuffed him and got his ass out of their. His girl friend, an ambulance had to be called to take her to the hospital. The azzhole is in the state pen now.
Answer: The cops love to torture people with their toys.
