Under seige (9 mins at gun point)

California police officer points gun at passenger for nine minutes during traffic stop

A video showing a northern California police officer pointing his gun for more than nine minutes at the passenger in a car stop has drawn attention on social media.

The Campbell police department says the officer pulled over the car for speeding on Highway 101 on 28 July.

Campbell police captain Gary Berg told the Mercury News the officer asked for the license of the woman driving, the car’s registration and proof of insurance. While the occupants were looking for those documents, Berg says the passenger started to reach under his seat.

The phone video shows the unidentified officer pointing his pistol at the passenger. The passenger holds up his hands and explains that he was looking for the requested documents, noting the papers on the floor and asks why the officer is pointing the weapon at him.

The Campbell police department is defending the officer’s decision to draw his gun.

You're blaming the wrong people.

It's ridiculous talking as if the cop is the problem. He has to risk his life doing his job.

The people responsible are those who allow the country to be so awash with guns, that cops have reached this point.

i.e. The American public.
While there is a market for shit, there will be assholes to supply it.

Siege. Them vowels are a funny thing in English. Makes no sense, so I memorized sspelling by looking at words. It would spell out siich in Finnish or seech in English if it were sensible.
