Tom Dorr once posted many of these shootings are the result of people not complying. At first i thought this is just to simple an answer, but if you were an officer in these situations what would you do , knowing there are 300 millions on the streets of America. Watch the video and you decide.

That is very good - if there was more outreach where people see thing from the other side there would be a lot less problems.

Thanks for sharing, zap!

Good advice would be, no matter how humiliating, unfair or irritating ,when an officer orders you to do something , JUST COMPLY. This is not the time to take a stand on violation of your rights.

Resisting by itself becomes a stand alone charge and usually provokes a bad cop to create fiction, plus resisting heightens the chance that scared or bully cop with a gun or taser just might lose control himself and shoot you.

The time to exact your justice isn't in the heat of the moment, but when you've satisfied the cop that either this is a mistake or you are not a threat. Take his name,badge number and if possible from that point on take out your phone and record asking him why he used force and even had reason to approach or detain you. Then see a lawyer, if you are not satisfied with the officers conduct or response.

Good video, Zap. Also, if there was more community policing, maybe people wouldn,t be facing each others as strangers for the first time.
