Not sure I necessary agree with this statement
I think you can should be able to say what every you like to anyone, why can you not verbally ***** slap someone, It is not like police are required to take more.because courts have ruled that while not all speech is protected, police officers are expected to take a higher level of verbal abuse than would be expected from a member of the general public," the sheriff said.

For the record though I think the guy's an idiot and it's a shame he's getting a reward for speeding through a school zone while talking on a cell phone with his head so far up his ass he didn't notice the police behind him.

Heh... my old partner and I thought about this video as we were discussing this case over the weekend. It's an excellent, textbook response from the trooper. And, in fact, once you use this method a few times, your LEO career makes a very positive shift. Your stress level drops considerably when you don't allow yourself to get sucked in by taunts, and you start sleeping a lot better at night, having fewer stressful incidents, confronting less danger, and getting fewer complaints. And then there is the whole benefit of the driver getting even more pissed off when s/he fails to get the desired response from you. I loved watching the steam shoot from their ears more and more as I continued to just smile and nod at their tantrum. It's a lot more satisfying than spending the next two hours doing pointless paperwork over it.One of my favorite police videos:
