Assuming, every fact that the police says are true about the driver, (he gave them the finger and he was receiving fellatio from his girlfriend) you have to ask the question WHY ON EARTH are the police dressed for war? This is America. Unless there was martial law imposed and a massive terrorist threat, I can see no justification for these "robocops" roaming the streets with massive firepower and armor plate. This is the stuff of third world tyranny not the "the land of the free, home of the brave". Clearly the driver was provoking a confrontation and the police acted professional although one cop claimed the cellphone could be a weapon. The policy of militarized police should concern everyone.
