Even if you’re correct, do you really think this is an American phenomenon? Dude, assholes are universal. Police have to deal with people rudely mouthing off and making weird moves in every damned country you can think of, all over the world. Show me a cop of any nationality, I’ll show you a person who has been called everything under the sun — and their families, too. And no. It won’t distract the most competent officers, as shown by a disproportionate amount of shootings by poorly trained cops.
