If the guy is in uniform, God help us...he better not be deaf, should speak english, and hopefully not freeze in fear near a weapon...but I guess that would just be in this situation. In this case in particular, the "victim" was responding to statements made, and made it clear that he understood, yet had no intention to comply.You are assuming that everyone can hear. That everyone speaks English. That the driver is not frightened. And on and on....
It should not be the standard for the above reasons.
I know you hate cops, but why be so confrontational and obtuse? Not everyone here is a cop. Not everyone here is die hard "Back the Blue". The thing is, the more people push their opinions and versions of "what is right", the more some of us decide who we more closely align with. This is not in regards to badges or employment, but who's values more represent their own. Using the "what if they were deaf, forozen, etc..." is the same defense as LE..."What if they have a gun, knife, etc..."
So, by your metric, LE shouldn't act a certain way. Luckily LE doesn't share the same narrow opinion. If they did, everyone would be shot immediately upon a traffic stop. Anytime multiple individuals are in a tense situation, that situation is fluid. Every movement and action adds to the equation.
