      Wow. For a moment you are in his shoes, and it is very frightening. If you were a police officer, how would you have handled this?

        Very frightening indeed. There were so many things they could have done better, starting with not unsnapping the gun holster two seconds in to the conversation. The description is a joke, basically just "black guy." They should have let him go after they asked their initial questions and had his ID. Whole thing should have taken less than a minute. All this for an attempted break-in is crazy.
