Honestly, this is not a joking matter. May be police in America does not have as much power as Gestapo, in Nazi Germany, but it has incredible amount of power. Here are the examples: 1. Capitol Hill police officer, stopped and asked A BLACK UNITED STATES SENATOR, to show his ID, and prove that he is a senator, or risk arrest. If they can do that to a United States senator, then who are you and I? We are nothing! 2. A Harvard university black professor was arrested, when tried to enter his own home, with keys and identification shown. 3. Black customers at Starbucks were arrested, when store clerk asked them to either buy something or leave, while, they were simply waiting for a white friend to arrive. 4. In United Airline plane a Chinese doctor was beaten badly, when he refused to give up seat, he was already assigned and paid for. So my black and brown and asian , and bearded friends, if you wish to complete your natural life in America, do the followings. 1. You can ask a question from police officers to get help, but do it with extreme politeness and thank them after that. 2. If you do not have a question, then do not strike conversation with police. They might interpret that as you distracting them, and your partner shoot them, while you distract them. Of course, that thought will be proven wrong, but in the interim, you are making police officer nervous. You can argue, that police should not be that jumpy. But they are. 3. If a police officer stops you, then keep your hands out, at all times, where they can see them. 4. Do not make any sudden body movement, if you are stopped by the police. Running away is certain death penalty. 5. Obey every order, the officer gives you without any arguments. 6. Answer, all police questions, to the best you can. 7. Stay as needed but leave when you are asked to leave. 8. You do have legal right to ask officers business card, with their name and badge number. if they do not have it ask them to write on a piece of paper and give it to you. Hold it in your hand. Remember, no hands in any pocket, until you left officers sight. Obey these rules to live your natural life. Advice to Indians and other Asians, who look like Muslims: If a white man wants to argue with you in bars, do not argue. If they look drunk and ask you to leave, then leave. A young Indian engineer , Srinivas Kuchbotla, did not leave , and white man came back with a gun and killed him.

Police are supposedly to "protect and serve" but mainly seem to "penalize and enforce". I wonder what a system of officers actually trained to protect and serve would look like. From my incredibly uninformed point of view, the phrase to protect and serve is wildly mischaracterizing, and should be replaced with something more fitting, like "Grown Up & Bored Hall Monitors Drunk on Power with Licenses to Kill, Ability to Ruin Lives in a Single Shitty Arrest, and Should Be Avoided at All Costs". Seriously, after a few significantly negative experiences with law enforcement (1 where my life was in immediate danger -- 4 guns pointed at my face, 1 that was psychologically traumatizing -- the officer was repeatedly yelling at me, barking orders at me and crowding me physically as I'm having a panic attack, and 1 where the cop was just having a big ego day and I won't get into details) now when I see any kind of law enforcement I'm mentally and physically on guard and just prepare myself for the worst. No I'm not black or hispanic or trans, I'm a mentally ill white female that has panic attacks. I think it's an issue that entire communities of people (minorities / immigrants / trans /mentally ill) are in fear for their lives and livelihoods because of the very real existence of bad cops and not-so-bad cops having a big ego day. If the cop wants to kill you or destroy your life, s/he absolutely can. And where I live there are zero ramifications for over zealous police officers looking to fight their boredom at work with some ill informed notion of social justice.

Reminder that cops claimed the swat team raiding Dennis Tuttle’s home didn’t have body cameras. A no knock raid on the wrong house where they killed everyone inside. They have started to prosecute some officers but it won’t go anywhere

American police: have hours long shootout with a thief in a UPS truck: Thief, hostage, and a random civilian are dead. Some boomer conceal carrying a pistol in a church: *Drops a mass shooter in under 10 seconds with a single shot* Im gonna trust the gun nuts more than the cops now

I was with you until you brought that POS race bater Dyson. He is a racist and a pseudo intellectual blow hard and what Chris Rock would call a fucking neggar. Don't get me wrong, I'm not siding with the cops but that race bating POS is just as bad or worse

This is what Hong Kong's protest has led into, the awareness of how police can act with impunity. It has a very similar system and Hong Kong protesters are calling for independent inquiry. #standiwithhongkong #fightforfreedom

This is another case especially in America where money out weights are human decency if we care more for monetary value in compensation than we do for our fellow human beings, are we even human beings anymore

Hasan is a genius. His use of comedy to expose a specific issue is powerful and unprecedented in our media. And his presentation is flawless. Patriot Act should be a national requirement in high school curricula for teaching presentation skills.

Totally agree with all this. But who employs Cops? We do the citizens. But the cops bosses do nothing, the politicians.

Hasan is better than CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Sixty Minutes and The View all put together and shaken up for good measure. He is THE BOMB that this country needs. God bless you, Hasan.

I worked for several years as a crisis manager with a lot of similarities to police work. I'd come in and deescalate serious, violent people. Had I acted like a cop every time someone tried to punch me, I'd have gotten fired. I, instead, learned to deescalate violent people. I've talked people out of holding big knives and all kinds of stuff. I felt that's how police should be for years. Also everyone should watch The Wire. It's an eye-opening look at how the police behave in the real world.

Watch Live PD for 5 episodes and see how hard it is. The biggest problem is combative civilians and MM telling them resisting is okay.

My only issue with your conclusions is that as long as the police in general protect bad cops it is perfectly reasonable to be anti-cop in general.

I don't know if this has come up, but if part of the problem is Prosecutors? Why not just bring them from areas where those sets of police officers have no influence? Like if a cop has done something in say Northern California, bring one from Southern California where they would have no reasonable correlation with that division? Or have prosecutors who only deal with police cases and don't deal with other forms of cases. Just a suggestion but it may help with the conflict of interest.

He raises interesting points, and the tragic consequences of poor judgment, mistakes, unpreparedness, ineptitude, and malice on the part of some police decisions do indeed reverberate throughout the communities affected by them. And the families are traumatized in ways that are irreparable. But, as per usual, Hasan's tendentious portrayal of the overall issues as stake is emblematic of the arrogance and ignorance of SJWs, who ostensibly portray themselves as sophisticated, crusading intellectuals. Yet, they fail to see the embarrassing impotence of presenting arguments that ignore the broader context of the problem, and instead of searching for plausible solutions to the problems that occur in the day-to-day policing of our communities, he claims to have divined a deeply-ingrained, intractable structural deficiency within our social institutions. Not only is his case weak, he employs the sort of sanctimonious sophistry that has resulted in liberals crying in our lattes on the first Wednesday of every fourth November, and whinging with indignant fury until the next election. He ignores the fact that cops are not paid well and are feared, disliked, and even hated by the majority of people they encounter. They DO have to be in a state of constant vigilance, sadly. And even good cops can make mistakes that forever change the lives of the communities they serve, as well as their own and that of their families.

How does this not violate the 14th amendment right to equal protection under the law?

Well, even as somebody who doesnt live in america I think this is a rather difficult topic. As soon as you let police officers get charged for using their guns they will start to think about using their guns which, especially in america, will most certainly lead to police officers getting killed more often. The police killing people is just a symptom, the fact that you can buy guns pretty much everywhere is the main problem. It's not unreasonable to train your police to shoot as soon as they feel threatened in a country where pretty much everybody can pull a gun on you anytime.

If one cop shoots in the leg or something someone by mistake and u win a case against him all the murderers will be able to sue cops. Don't trust this guy. He wants drug pimps to rule the country

@Ican FeeLIt um now what ur saying is if some guy gets shot in the leg and sues the cop rightfully for harming him is wrong cuz now the cop cant help people well the issue what ur saying is a cop can shoot a criminal yes if it was deemed as necessary but he cant shoot an innocent person and get away with it

In the last five years I'm gonna guess that unwarranted policemen killings have gone down do to all the protest and hype. How many homicides happened in that same five years in those respected cities? Chicago had like 3 people maybe, Baltimore had like 4 and St.Louis some how had added people I bet. So, take those guns away from the cops it's a no brainer. Cops are like bad or something!

So the murders of black people by police is usually racially motivated plus bad training, but their acquittal is a systemic issue? That's my takeaway here
Zayboy108 2 months ago
I feel like that ratio between training with violence vs deescalation is due to the war on drugs that happened
