Police officers get in that sort of situation all the time. They're tough bastards, all of them because they don't get to back down when it's a fight, they have to take the aggressor into custody.
If you think it's funny then you're a dickhead and a coward.
Police officers are dickheads. A lot are ill tempered people, who lose it when they get into the force. They love the power and abuse it, often in poorer nations, but they even abuse small things such as using blues to get pass traffic (In the UK) and then sedately drive as soon as they pass it.
My best mate is an officer and he is a mean guy, especially when younger. Having spoken to a few officers, they agree it is the case. They are dickheads and most are there because they get paid well.
