Police should not operate by intimidation

Jan 12, 2014 Police should not operate by intimidation

Here is a Tennessee deputy sheriff using an escalating, intimidating tone of voice with a man stopped at a sobriety checkpoint. Here, at around minute 19:30, the deputy has toned himself down considerably, after not finding a ground to arrest the same man at whom he was raising his voice earlier in the evening.

It is essential that all cops follow the lead of Maryland state police, whose pre-printed traffic citations say to expect a "polite, respectful tone from the Trooper."
