My question involves police conduct in the State of: CA
A police officer makes a traffic stop at night. Driver fails to stop for a stop sign in a residential neighborhood. Officer claims he dropped his flashlight as he got out of his patrol car. So, he approaches the driver with his gun drawn because he has a tactical light mounted to it. The officer admits this is the only reason his gun was drawn. Is this a criminal offense? Reckless endangerment? He pointed a loaded gun at the driver! When police add these military tools to their weapons do they practice before they are turned loose on us? Is it ever ok for police to use their weapon as a flashlight? Thank you.
