Well, yes and no. Surely he has training to guide him, and experience with exasperating people. And, officers still have human limits, so I can forgive a display of frustration. Sometimes it takes a little attitude (from the cop) to get cooperation. My post was a little tongue in cheek, though I also believe it is good practice for any public official to consider that he/she may be filmed or taped at any time.
And that lady, I think I might have dated her...She used to look better!
