Can you please highlight of the bold part where I said "tell a cop to stop yelling at you"?
But the lac does have the ability to quell a situation.
No, the LAC does not have the ability to "quell" the situation. Nor should he be burdened to do so. I hold the burden to not contribute to a "tense" situation. Thus my plan to shut my pie-hole and move slower than molasses in December. This is what I can do.
Cops are professionals and I expect nothing less than 100% professionalism. This is how cops gain and hold my highest level of respect.
I am burdened by a yelling cop (and you it seems), to simply stand there and "take it", his verbal abuses, in a attempt to "calm the situation" by being a verbal punching bag for that thug cop.....by being the adult in the room. If I am expected to be the adult, and i am the adult, what does that say about the yelling cop and his fitness to remain a cop. What is expected of him?
Gaining redress later is too late as far as I am concerned. I will
attempt to prevent further abuses via the appropriate channels, but holding that cop truly accountable
for what he has done to me is merely a pipe dream these days.
Former "Officer" Harless, of OH, brings to mind the prototypical yelling cop. What happened to him for his behavior, his death threats, his fighting words? Not a damn thing of any consequence.
, he losing his job does not "cut it" with me.
Anyway, the bottom line is the burden is placed on me, the LAC, by LE, to be the adult in the room, and you prove my point by your post.
You do not strike me as a "yeller" and for that I think the citizenry in your jurisdiction should be thankful.
Be safe in your daily comings and goings.
