Think of it this way, imagine you are at a checkout stand at a grocery store, and the person checking all the items decides to take a 10 minute break
and tells you that you have to just wait. Would you sit there for 10 minutes waiting?
Depends on the reason.
If it was to protest government and police violence then yes I would wait.
Well frankly,bad choices by the perps bring bad consequences.
My only problem with the attention for issues like that are that the ones they choose to use as examples are thugs doing very bad things and being
dangerous and stupid
. Idiots that were putting themselves in bad situations and forced a LEO to respond.
It is simple as hell, PO PO says stop, you stop. That is what my dad taught me and to be nice cause we can't fix it if I mess up and don't listen to
them when they are forced to make split second decisions. Only a fool plays with fire.
If they would pick real cases where this happened instead of examples like the Travon Martin case where that person just goes ninja mode and assaulted
someone, then gets killed by the victim. Or the Fergisson incident, where the fool reaches for the cops gun. Are there many real cases where the perp
stood still and got shot? If so, then I am sure I could see their point and we would march with them. I don't see that a perp running from the cops
and pointing weapons at them should get you a free pass from them anymore than I expect to get away with that.
