Language/behavior between citizen and police?
Setting scene. One on one, single member of police vs sole citizen. Confrontation, like squad car pulls over a vehicle, They meet and begin to talk/converse. Where should the line(s) be drawn for each, in terms of language/behavior?
Select any/all to address opinion towards answer:
1) Language that is neutral, proper, appropriate?
3) Language that is clearly over the line?
2) Language that is in between?
For example, among those I confess to have tried:
"What's your problem, officer?"
Optional: What to do when one thinks the other is about to, or has already crossed the line?
