    Perhaps she just enough of some arrogant cop trying to give her a patronizing lecture while attempting to intimidate her with his amazing professionalism.

    She did all that and was not shot, tasered, or subdued with batons. I wonder what would have happened if she was a person of color.

    Running from the cops – not too smart. You’re gonna get caught. If not then – eventually. Maybe she wanted to get on the TV show COPS.
