One: Kudos to the police chief for treating this responsibly instead of pulling the “don’t snitch, protect our own, we’re a street gang and everyone who isn’t wearing our identifying outfit is less important than we are” crap. This chief is to be commended.
Two: Speaking as a responsible gun owner. You are not justified in having your gun out unless you are justified in shooting to kill. And you are not justified in shooting to kill unless you are responding to a lethal threat. You don’t draw a gun unless someone is literally trying to kill you or someone else. The one cop was using his taser… whereas the other was being irresponsible, reckless, and stupid. If it would get a civilian arrested for doing it, it’s just as wrong for a cop to do it.
