It's hard to put in words; those 5 seconds just don't sit right with me for some reason.
Is it because she had her gun pointed at him?

I would have done the same until the threat level was fully understood. Hate to second guess the trooper but seems to me she let her guard down too soon. Assume the worst and pray for the best.
I don't want this to come off as armchair quarterbacking or second guessing her actions.

Drawing her service weapon was appropriate use of force. I also agree with the impression she let her guard down prematurely; The way she did it though is, well, odd. If you watch those 5 seconds slowly, focusing on her firearm control and position, you'll see what I mean. I hate to think what the outcome could had been if it was the marked MPD unit stolen by a suspect after escaping from the Psych Hold Unit instead of just an asshole power trippy off duty officer.

This SC trooper is a real piece of work. Whatcha think Sedan? I hope this idea hasn't crossed your mind.

Attended the 6th Memorial Ceremony for the fallen officers who were murdered while responding to a gun call.

The hardest part for me are for the children who were so young at the time and will never know their fathers except in pictures.

I feel like crap...

What are your thoughts on vehicles playing loud music? I mean is there a decibel range where it becomes illegal? I find loud music to be very therapeutic. Especially with the windows open.
