Still doesn't settle the second video, or any of the hundreds of other videos on youtube.
Like you said hundreds. And that is only because they were either leaked or privately made. Sometimes cops leak it. They have a lot of fun reviewing
that stuff downtown. A lot of them never make it to the private sector. Sometimes the ones that do are brought by officers themselves who witnessed it
and want to come forward but are afraid. That must make for some locker room jaunts, huh?
Both good and bad here. Cops are under a lot of pressure nowadays to justify their actions, because of "policy" and "rogue elements" within
departments. Good cops are often caught in the middle between their own sense of justice and "bullies" who make up the laws as they go. I wouldn't
want to be one, I wouldn't last. I am too nice.
I lived "outdoors" in a big city for seven years and I saw both kinds. Golden rule is Comply. You can't win. What are you going to do? Start
shooting? That makes it easy for them.
This guy in the video won because he totally complied and it shows on tape. If he had acted any differently he may be dead now. Them cops spelled
trouble with a badge. I survived all those years because I complied as well.
Some advice: You may hate the police but don't let that show when you are in their presence. You may be dodgin a warrant or got somethin up your
sleeve, but just do what they tell you from the get go and you will go home that nite and sleep safely in your bed.
Or I don't care, call em pigs and run off, reach in your pocket, push one away when he tries to restrain you and see what happens.
