agreed, i'm not sure what it's like there, but here? they have to sign a complete report for deholstering their weapon.
 Quoting: CitizenPerth

In the jurisdictions where I have been involved, no paperwork for unholstering, but a good long explanation of the stop to justify calling out other officers and all that.

To fire a weapon requires soooooooo much paperwork and involvement that I'm aware of situations where they have encouraged a civilian to put down an injured deer and like that, just to avoid the paperwork. LOL

This officer was so far out of line - just common sense would tell anybody that the man is picking up garbage - how much prowling was he doing on his own property? How threatening was his "weapon"? It was so incredibly stupid - that department certainly has a black eye!
