I agree with the comments of Mike Christopherson (Readers' Forum, Nov. 25) concerning the arrogance and shameful behavior of the Utah Highway Patrol trooper who Tasered a driver simply because that driver chose to question the officer's motives.
In the first place, did anyone viewing the incident ever witness this officer reciting the driver's rights following his arrest?
At no time did this officer have reason to feel a threat of bodily harm, and there was absolutely no sign of the driver resisting arrest.
This is a prime example of why there is such an alarmingly rapid rate of citizens learning to fear and obey law enforcement but not respect them.
There are many fine police officers, but this particular state trooper does not deserve to hold the status of a public servant and should be terminated.
