Many if not all of the media and pols will never ask why didn’t he just sit in his car and get his Notice to Appear traffic citation.
I don’t know Memphis‘ court rules on bond but I’m sure they’re as lenient as most jurisdictions these days, so it’s very likely unless this active resistor was wanted on a capital offense, he would have spent a few hours of inconvenience mostly for processing and let go without paying a dime.
The public is not privy to the details, but this MPD Unit was doing what they were tasked by their (activist) MPD Chief instructed. She threw them under the bus rather quick.
A normal traffic stop usually doesn’t command a multitude of responding units …until SHTF.
Media and trouble makers want to stir the pot and when even the MPD brass doesn’t back the blue, they have a real problem.
Lawlessness continues to pay dividends is so many ways, it’s why the Pols don’t want to put an end to it.
