    Him driving 3 miles probably did sketch the cops out, as did him getting out of the vehicle.

    But I get the logic of why he did that. The cops make themselves look very overly aggressive in this video, especially in using that tazer.

    It's incidents like this that make people hate cops.

    Well that was lame as whole fuck. He was calmly asking them to show him id, which they are clearly required to do. Power tripping morons.

    Love reading an article about the arrest and then seeing the footage.

    The world is just full of BS

    As a guy that admittely only interned at a criminal defense firm yeah, the cops were fucking assholes in this. THAT said though, don't drive for 3 fucking miles with them following you and don't start TELLING them what to do, that's a GREAT way to get people pissed off, anyone even if they are not a cop.

    So is the three forms legit?

    The fucking thing with police is, there are many good ones, but even when the good ones make a mistake, they have a mentality where they cannot break and appear to be dishy washy so they go pedal to the medal down the unreasonable path that they set off... They are like athletic commisions

    Also, for a white guy traveling with an infant, Herman must have a crazy unreasonable fear of police

    Police are way out of control, and everyone jumps to conclusions and assumes the citizen is at fault instead of the power tripping pigs. There needs to be more accountability for police because right now it's like we have Blackwater/Academi is playing in our own backyard, and the police are becoming increasingly militarized.

    This isn't an isolated incident and is common.

    I know it's easy to shit on cops right now, with all the shit going on. But Herman dropped his hands and turned around towards the cops, while they were screaming at him with a taser drawn.

    I;m not cop sympathizer, and these cops did act aggressively, but most of these police brutality incidents wouldn't happen if people cooperated. Herman was acting somewhat sketch, driving 3 miles before pulling over and jumping out of his vehicle, then disobeying them and making a move towards the cops (I know it wasn't aggressive, but when you add all that up, then a dude drops his hands and turns towards your drawn taser, I can see why they did shoot).

    Right. It's not the murders of innocent people but the tasering of MMA fighters. This world is so crazy.

    The three forms of id thing sounds like a myth, I can't find anything online from legit sources. I get two, maybe, if a guy faked a uniform, you might want to see a badge with his name that matches his license. Third form seems unreasonable, and the whole thing that they need to show 3 seems unfounded...

    Also when it came to his wife, she can't have expected the officer to let her film his badge info, drivers license info, and a third form, right?
