Ridiculous for Jessica to think she has the right to normalize how Police do their job. She did not know any of the circumstances surrounding these events. She immediately jumps to " cop pulls gun on black man". Way to racially profile a situation. A cop has the right to use his tools to do his job. Should he wait till the suspect has "the drop" on him in situation where he does not know if the person they are making contact with is and upstanding law abiding citizen? That's how a cop gets killed.

Get real. Absolutely absurd how you normalize pointing a gun at someone as some inherent part of the job. Worthless lying cops. Can’t be rid of them fast enough.
