We’ve seen a few stories cross our timeline about police officers quitting the force, citing the current environment and a lack of support from above. As Twitchy reported, after the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota Mayor Mike Elliot announced that he doesn’t believe police officers necessarily need a weapon every time they make a traffic stop. They don’t necessarily need a weapon when responding to a domestic disturbance either, but it’s a damn good idea to have one. Or just let the social workers take point.

Here’s a traffic stop caught on bodycam, brought to us by journalist Bill Melugin, that didn’t require a weapon, but did require a great amount of restraint on the part of the police officer. So this is a teacher?

A professor? No way!

Going public with this was a good start.

Infuriating.
