Okay, so the officers harassed, detained, and ultimately arrested a 100% law abiding individual. He was breaking no laws, was not disturbing anybody's peace, and posed no threat whatsoever.
And you really want to praise them for showing "restraint?" They deprived him of his liberty without cause. To me that's anything but showing restraint. That's clearly abusing their authority. The key is, again, the guy was breaking no laws whatsoever. If the cops believed he was, they were wrong, NOT HIM. They require discipline, NOT HIM.
