Case: AGUILAR v. ROBERTSON, No. 11-51069 (Fifth Circuit February 19, 2013)

Quote:

Thus, the only “threat” posed by Aguilar was one that Robertson created himself by stepping in front of Aguilar as he struggled to come to a complete stop.

Comment: Sadly, this quote comes from a dissenting judge. The majority thought it was acceptable for the policeman to step in front of the motorcycle.
