The point being made is that this kind of┬ábehavior was the latest example of “overbearing police tactics meted out in an unwarranted setting,” according to attn.com.

“But the barrel roll provided a glimpse into a particular mindset of policing using unnecessary tactics, and informed with an action-movie zeal,” writes attn.com.
