    Our police never receive adequate training on how to channel and diffuse their own adrenalin and frustration after chases and other less intense "meetings" with the civilian public. As a result we have stuff like this happening everyday, everywhere.It's too bad that so much of the public is ignorrant to, and laugh off, old-school methods of controlling ones emotions-- like meditation. I guarantee that if police were required to be instructed meditation to counteract these abuses we'd see a drastic reduction in this kind of thing. Which in turn would reduce lawsuits against local departments and foster better relationships between the community and the police.We need to "get over" our biases against "new age" practices and take from them what works. If it works, then it works. Plain and simple.
