The cops almost killed this guy over what turned out to be nothing. The "kidnapped girl" was the guy's girlfriend, and got into his car on her own will. Not only did the cops almost kill him, they tackled him to the ground and, I presume from what the article is saying, confiscated his belt buckle.
There is no excuse for the way the cops treated this guy. If he was an adult who was lawfully carrying a real firearm, would they have shot him then?
