    I read the article, and several others, watched both videos, and as a layman, I don't see criminal charges against Lt. Tiller.

    Having said that, are armed confrontations in fast food parking lots over less than an ounce of marijuana something we want in society? What if I had been walking out the door of that Hardee's with my three young children in tow?

    Yeah, based on that dashcam video, it doesn't look like the officer was in any danger of being run-over by the vehicle. Nor did it look like the driver was attempting to do so.
