The Orthosphere

 “In the course of his career as marshal he has never drawn a gun on an offender, his firmness and moral courage being sufficient to subdue the most obstreperous individual and to uphold the majesty of the law.” 

Johnson, Barker and Winkler,A History of Texas and Texans(1914)

What should a policeman do when a citizen ignores his orders?This is what we might call theburningquestion of out time.If he says stop and I keep walking, or running, or struggling, what exactly should he do?Should he shrug his shoulders and say, whatever?Should he call for backup and try again in an hour?Should he pull out his gun and shoot me?
