That's a lousy response on your part. Cops get their asses kicked just like anyone else. What I pointed out was that they aren't required to wait until they're already getting beaten before cracking out the hardware.

Of course it is a better answer, since my response is what the law is. It's the group of you who've chosen to ignore that without offering a legitimate alternative that I'm trying to get to offer said alternative. If getting pummeled enough to end up on the ground with bloodied face and back of head isn't enough, what is? Is a broken jaw sufficient? How about the loss of an eye? Internal bleeding? Where's the cutoff between "got to take a beating" and "can finally act with extra force to preserve my life"? You all seem to think there's a cutoff point that's hard and fast, so let's have it.
