Every now and then, I'm actually frightened by something I read.
"...Critics argue that the policy is too lenient and allows police to use stun guns in response to nothing more than verbal resistance. But it will prove difficult to create a policy that differentiates between passive verbal resistance and verbal resistance that presages an immediate physical threat. ..." [LINK]
I've highlighted in bold the section that is insane.
Or maybe the phrase "...it will prove difficult..." is intended to be humourous.
If it's not intended to be a joke, then I strongly suggest that those involved set their sights a bit lower. Expecting to provide policy that will assist officers to read minds and predict the future is a form of insanity.
When citizens and political leaders ask their police department to be more proactive, they didn't mean it in the sense of 'Minority Report' (the movie [LINK]).
