He did not say that they could arbitrarily assault people who are not using force of any kind.

Kindly shut the fuck up now.
Unless your stance is the abolishment of law enforcement, you have to accept that they need these +1 powers to do their job effectively
This is complete bullshit. There are perfectly acceptable non-lethal responses to force that the police could use, i.e. tasers, mace, bean bag guns. And are you seriously stipulating that they could not do their jobs without being able to arbitrarily assault people who are not using force of any kind?
