In a city like Philly, it's understandable for the police to be a little jumpy. They do have to deal with a lot of undesirable crap, after all. But in a case like this where an innocent citizen is simply exercising a right to self defense in a fully legal manner, there's not a lot that can be said in their defense.
If only they were this, for lack of a better term, vigilant towards actual criminals. After they're all remanded to a course on professional conduct and basic law, of course.
