  • The key here is “taken into custody without incident”. If only this were the norm everywhere.

    • It’s usually up to the suspect.

    • It usually is the “NORM” everywhere unless the suspect is resisting or acting as tho they are going to pull a weapon. The police are people just like you and I, who do a very hard job and I respect them very much for their courage and service. I think all the people who want to defund the police and who attack and try to hurt or kill them should loose access to 911 services and if there in trouble so what. You brought it on yourself. Let them live in the sh*ithole they want to live in.
