Why not let the dad stay in the car? If the officer was worried about him running how about he just takes the keys while he looks into this? That way the father can sit with his daughter. The police need all the help they can get to clean up their image and stuff like this doesnt help.
Because the cops have one job and one job only and that's to not get shot, even in the most unlikeliest of scenarios.  They're lives are worth more than everyone else's.  If they have to murder a family of 12 and their dogs because there's a 0.5% chance they might be killed, they'll do it.  Even though they signed up for the lifestyle and we didn't.
