He is there to help you if you are in danger.
And remember, he is the one in possession of a fire arm, a taser, and hand cuffs.
I think many people forget that and land into trouble (or worse).
You think you can get away with being insulting to a police man in, let's say, Jamaica ?
While it would be prudent to hold certain assessments until you have a good understanding of what happened. I don’t think even this short clip leaves much room to a possible misunderstanding or to a possible altercation occurring prior to the video. No matter how verbally abusive or irrespectful anyone is, this is no reason to escalate the situation into a violent brawl, specially if you have the higher physical power (e.g. police with weapons/armor/etc).
Unfortunately, doctors/nurses in the ER get physically assaulted far more commonly than post people even imagine. Although I do not work in the ER too much, I have still witnessed a few of these and I have never seen a healtcare personal escalate or even reciprocate when such altercation do occur. These are people that did not knowingly choose a profession that is understood to have this kind of danger, nor did they ever receive any training what so ever for de-escalation. So why is that, when it comes to police, who did choose this profession that is understood to have this problem, and supposedly do receive training, it is so hard for them to act in a prudent way?
It is my view that police should never NEVER start a fight. And it is also my views, that with very extremely rare cases police should NEVER be the first one firing a shot. And I do understand this brings risk to the profession... suck it up, if you cannot handle said risk, get a job in an office.
