    He would have been justified in the use of his Tazer, the officer gave clear and precise commands to the suspect to stop. The officer should have used the tazer, I still think the pistol in the hand approach would have worked. Ive done it many times.

    I have dealt with petty criminals---in plain clothes. My tactic has been to get as close as I could, close enough to touch them, before I started talking to them. And I would rest my hand on them as soon as the conversation started (as if we were high school buddies). I don't know if this is viable for a uniformed officer, but I have always felt that distance is not in our favor when the other guy gets the chance to draw first. The other thing is support. I understand the realities of policing, but you cannot enforce without a partner riding along with you.
