LB and I recently exchanged e-mails on the in-the-news issue of arrests for “contempt of cop”. My two questions — any empirical evidence of how prevalent it is (my guess — very), and any research into public attitudes toward the practice (my guess — most people don’t have a problem with this blatant violation of the Bill of Rights — LB disagrees). Here’s the reason I posted, though — another Taser incident. There’s already been an internal investigation — the chief announced that the Taser use was “appropriate”.
