A couple of observations: --Mr. Moats exhibited genuine restraint when confronted with the Barney Fife wannabe who was doing his best to escalate tension. In a situation where most people would lose control of their emotions, Mr Moats maintained self discipline to an amazing extent. --This could have ended far worse if Mr Moats had been less disciplined in his response to Barney Fife. We could very easily be discussing this story as a case of a motorist shot dead by a cop. The cop in this case has displayed a significant lack of perspective when dealing with a common sense situation. --The cop in this case is one of those people who shouldn't be a cop. He is an authority @$$#073 who lives to jerk other people around. --Mr. Moats and his family have been severely harmed by this situation by being prevented from their dying relative's bedside. This is no small thing. This is a situation which will haunt this family for the rest of their lives. -- Mr Moats has been very forgiving with the situation. He has gone out of his way to not condemn the offending police officer. It is beyond my comprehension where he finds it within himself to to not publicly berate the jerkwad who ****** over him and his family. He's a far better man than I am.
