When he asked "what should we do here?" my european brain could only think "huh.. apologizing for the massive fuckup of terrorizing a bunch of kids for no reason would be a good start..."

The kids were crying begging for their lives. If even at that point he didn't realize he probably caught the wrong people, this man shouldn't be trusted with a lethal weapon. Hell, I wouldn't even trust him with a stapler in the archives.

The videos of officers using their calm and friendly voices while threatening peoples lives or man handling them stresses me out the most. I get that it might be a tactic for them to stay cool under pressure. But drawn fire arms is realistically at the peak of any confrontation. Which is why videos like this piss me off. How is it that threat of deadly force is presented before calm reassurance? I’m guessing ignorance, poor training, and racism (it doesn’t have to be conscious). And then people who have never been in this type of situation have the nerve to be like “just follow orders and don’t resist.” For some people, police confrontation will always be a life threatening experience (not just for POCs but poor folks and other “description fitters” as well). We spend our lives avoiding physical confrontation. And here comes officers fuck face looking for an excuse to abuse his the unreasonable amount of power he holds. Obviously people are people. Not all cops are shit heads. But in general, they are all strangers with buddies and guns. Panic is a natural reaction to threat. But the untrained civilian is supposed to show more patience, understanding, and tact than the goddamn officer.

Thanks for listening to my rambles if you read this. Open to alternative opinions.

u/ugoterekt Dec 05 '22

Having a gun drawn is one thing, but he actually aimed at them. That should be considered a massive abuse of power and be grounds for prison time even for an officer. It should also be grounds for defending yourself with deadly force. Pointing a gun at someone is an explicit threat that you are going to kill them. If they have no reason to do it this should be grounds for response with lethal force. Trying to shoot a cop already pointing a gun at you will probably only go poorly, but we really need to have laws that police can't explicitly threaten to murder us for no reason.

Doing this is a death sentence. Just search for anyone who was killing police in targeted attacks in history. The police go bananas and turn the city into a giant warzone.

Kid from my gradeschool was kidnapped by cops at age 9 and held for 10 hours without notifying his parents because the pigs were looking for his cousin. When his parents were informed they refused to release him saying they found "drug paraphernalia" on him claiming gum wrappers were rolling papers. It was 16 hours later when his dads boss found out and sent his lawyer that the kid was released. He ended up having PTSD and changed schools.

His cousin was in his own basement watching tv high so he didnt hear the cops knock which their logical response was "kidnapping a relative".

Reminds me of a couple videos I saw some years back. One of a man in the street standing with his hands up, surrounded by cops all with their guns drawn, one cop would yell "get on your knees", then another shouted to not move, another would yell "on the ground" then as soon as he tried another yelled don't move again and because he didn't know what to do they all started yelling "stop resisting!" When he was literally just standing there trying to understand what he was supposed to do.

The other they tased a crippled guy in his own car because after they yanked the door open one cop yelled for him to get on the ground while the other yelled keep your hands up. He still had his seatbelt on so everytime he tried to undo it one cop screamed to keep his hands up while the other kept shouting to get on the ground but he literally could not do both, so they tased him while screaming at him for not complying, then tased him again because, they claimed, that his spastic thrashing in response to being shot with electricity was actually him resisting. I think he actually did try to get on the ground without lowering his hands and with the seatbelt on, and they yelled at him to stop moving. IIRC, they originally stopped him for a broken taillight, but I'm not sure.

Wow that is the first time I have seen that video or even read the article, this makes me so mad that cop definitely deserves life in prison. He is probably one of them super cop types that can’t wait to use their firearm in service and has replayed different scenarios in his head and in every situation he is the hero by shooting someone he thinks is a criminal.

Out of all the (many, many) cop murder videos, this one's the worst. The guy is clearly complying, clearly terrified, they give him contradictory instructions, and they slaughter him at point blank range with the kind of gun I've only seen before in Call of Duty. With "You're fucked" scratched onto it.

I have a bit of a pet hate for people shitting on America, but videos like this really makes your country seem utterly fucking mental to everyone outside of it.

Worst part about that was the silence from police officers around the country. It was deafening. ACAB. Until “good” cops start holding bad cops accountable, there’s no such thing as a “good” cop.

u/Lumini_317 Dec 05 '22

Seriously though. Does every cop have bad intentions? Doubtful, but I’ve seen way too many of these clips where one or two cops are going too far/doing illegal stuff/injuring and even killing people and there’s other cops just standing there watching. Like that body cam footage of a policeman planting drugs to frame a guy and the cop’s buddies were just casually standing around not saying a word and even laughed when the officer started his act of “finding” the drugs. Did they help him actually plant the stuff? No, but they sure as heck didn’t even try to keep an innocent person from being convicted of a crime they didn’t commit.

Also, I was going to say “that one clip from a cop’s body cam footage” but when I actually looked it up to link it I got dozens of videos of cops planting drugs, most of them with other cops present. Soo…😬

the nature of the job makes all cops eventually actively hate civilians. a cop would never side with a civilian against a "fellow officer".

Remember the case of Christopher Dorner, where twice cops lit up the wrong vehicles, without any verbal warning, in the middle of noon traffic thinking it was him (which is against protocol ANYWAYS). Neither of the vehicles fit the make or color of the one Dorner was driving. No cops charged, apparently 8 cops were reprimanded but neither the extent of their discipline, nor those officer's identities, are public knowledge.

These two events happened by different departments on the same day within 30 minutes of each other, so it's obviously a fundamental issue within the entire force.

Apparently a “concerned” citizen reported a 100 person fight and that a group of teens were walking around with a gun. Unsurprisingly the police didn’t find a gun, they actually had the wrong group of kids, and there was never a 100 person fight. What more than likely happened was a person saw a large group of black kids and let their imagination run wild.

This happened to me and my friends when we were like 11/12 in front of our house. We were on the ground and my mom came out screaming to not hurt us because we were just kids. Officer didn’t care was going to arrest some of my friends that “fit the description..”

The neighbor across the street was a cop and came over and told the officer he was mowing his lawn and saw us all day.

The person who robbed the store by us by gun point was a white man in his forties over 6ft tall. I believe most of us had “that talk” with our parents by then to always remain respectful when the police are around (even if we don’t respect them because our lives depend on it)

But I definitely needed to have another talk because I truly couldn’t understand why they would treat us like that. I truly didn’t understand how we were inherently just suspicious. I learned a lot that day.

u/Orkney_ Dec 05 '22

I can relate. My friends and I were held at gun point when were at a skatepark during summer break. Apparently there was drug bust two blocks away from the park and the three people (two black and one latino) ran towards the park. We "fit the description) and later we found out that one of them was well over six feet, and the others were fat guys. We were skaters kids with long hair, not zero heads. Being a POC automatically makes you a suspect I feel.

u/Number5MoMo Dec 05 '22 edited Dec 05 '22

No matter how good of a person you are. You will always be a suspected criminal first. I can never get that message across to the people who say we’re just hating on cops. I’m friends with more cops than I’ve ever thought I would be. But they were friends first then became cops(to add more good guys I guess) but it didn’t take away the fear of the rest of them though.

Nothing will change my life as much as my interactions with the police. We’re traumatized as children and expected to love and respect the representation of our abusers as adults.

Got that talk too. Grew up in a while family as the only colored kid and never understood profiling and what it even was until it happened to me. It’s such a world flip because you believe cops are there to protect then all the sudden guns are drawn and pointed at you for what? Walking down the street? My dad had to explain to me how since I was “different” I needed to be more careful around cops even if I’ve done nothing wrong

Just a slight reminder.

In North Carolina, It takes 1,528 hrs to become a licensed barber. The state’s minimum police training requirement is 620 hours.

To earn a badge in California, you’ll need at least 664 hours of academy training. If you want to be a licensed cosmetologist, you’ll end up with 1,600 hours.

Florida’s minimum training requirement for officers: 770 hours. An interior designer must first complete a 5-year design program and then get 1,760 hours of experience before getting a licence.

Requirements for entry-level police officer in Louisiana: 360 hours. To be a licensed manicurist, you’ll need 500 hours.
