I have to agree. Strip shirt dude was either drunk..or on speed. Open carry guy was cool and calm. All in all, I think the cops handled it well.
They really didn't have much choice in this incident.
In LA, if this guy were walking down the street like that, they send out a tactical swat team, seal off a 10 block perimeter, set up command posts, shoot the cell phone out of his hand, send in the dogs, tazed him, shot him several dozen times, and if he resisted, 7 or 8 would beat him senseless with clubs. He would then be arrested for failing to follow commands in a timely manner, in addition to 36 other law violations.
