Granted, the citizen was a bigger idiot than the cop being unprofessional...but...
The cop could have been more professional by immediately identifying himself and stating the reason for the stop. He's not legally required to...but I think it would have gone a long way. AtA gives the cop a B+ and says that he could have used more de-escalation. I somewhat agree...especially if that de-escalation included giving his name and the reason for the stop. But, I just can't fault him much at all. I think he deserved an A- at the least (small quibble).
The citizen was an idiot for claiming that the officer HAD to give him the reason for the stop, talking about how he can legally close his window and lock his door and refuse to exit his vehicle, openly admitting to breaking the law, arguing on the side of the road, resisting arrest, etc... An F if I ever saw one.
Another great video by AtA.
