One Does Not Simply Meme | ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY JUDGE A GROUP OF PEOPLE ON THE ACTIONS OF A SMALL SAMPLE | image tagged in memes,one does not simply | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
When you assume a trait or action of a small sample of a group applies to the whole group. I'm basically agreeing with the post, just explaining what the reasoning for it is, and that it is wrong to judge all muslims based on the actions of a few, and the same applies to cops.

I think there are a few bad apples, like with everything else, but I certainly dont think all cops are bad, and I would like to believe that the general consensus is that a majority of America agrees with me.

I think the only real divided issue is that we need to bridge the gap of community relations, improve officer training and actually punish those who are bad apples.

No I dont think the Michael Browns are defensible, but I also dont agree that simply resisting arrest (without violence) or reaching for your wallet should be a death sentence either. If we can fix those things, we will be in a much better place. Can anyone disagree with that?

There are many reasons one may resist arrest. In the academy we were taught that a subject may resist simply due to shock, which is why communication is important. If someone catches you off guard, and escalates things by physically controlling you without communication, its easy for that person to be in shock and not actually comprehend what is going on, or to follow orders. Officers are supposed to deescalate a situation when possible, not the opposite. My CO told me in every confrontation I would be escalating it, because even though they may not be armed, I am. Its my job to turn things down a notch and explain whats going on, why I stopped you, why I am arresting you etc... not grab your arms and throw you onto a car hood. You will notice if you watch real cop videos, that those cops who take the time to explain things have a much better compliance rate, and study after study has backed that up.
Further, one may resist due to fear. Fear that they may be shot simply by cooperating with the officer and getting their license out, which HAS happened several times, including the incident in South Carolina where the officer was found guilty.

And honestly, I am not sure what to say to someone who thinks people risk their lives, risk much longer prison sentences and risk bodily injury just so people can protest. These are just people caught up in their daily lives, I cant for a second believe that Mr. Sterling thought "wait a minute, instead of complying with these officers who are threatening to shoot me, Im just going to keep squirming and risk being shot so they can protest on my behalf". I mean come on, I hope you really dont believe that?

I didn't say that people resist arrest to incite protests. I said quite clearly if people did not resist arrest they wouldn't be killed and then no one would have reason to protest.
In Alton sterling's case the officers actually did not threaten to shoot him. They shot him when they said he reached for his gun, which was in his pocket. He should have laid down across the hood of the car as instructed. He should have surrendered after being tased. The only video shown was the one shot by bystanders and only at the tail end of the altercation. Not enough information for me to render a full opinion.
Perhaps some (not all) people who resist arrest do so because they know they are wrong and hope to overpower the police or they are intoxicated and go into superman mode thereby putting the officers life/health in jeopardy.
I mean just maybe right?

Or maybe they're a parolee with a concealed weapon... an automatic trip back

Yeah I didnt get that from your meme at all, I only got Batman slapping him because people want to protest, and therefor people have to resist arrest, but no worries.

As far as his case, I agree that there isnt enough information to make an informed opinion. However witness statements so far have stated that the officers arrived on scene and rushed up, trying to pin him on the hood of the car. Probably because of the nature of the call, but if true points to a lack of good training. Unless he had the gun out or was shooting/threatening the lives of someone (which by accounts he merely showed his gun to a homeless man to get him to back off as he was pestering him and thats who called 911 because he was upset) then typical officers wouldnt come in hot.

"Merely" pointing a gun at someone who is "annoying you" is a damn good reason for officers to pin a person to a car hood. I stand by my meme... Don't resist and they won't shoot you.

Again, there are ZERO reports of him pointing a gun at anyone. Only that he "showed" the gun to a homeless man. http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/07/us/baton-rouge-alton-sterling-shooting/

"Don't resist and they won't shoot you"... I think many people would disagree with that statement, including the links below which bring up 3 of the many people who were killed or seriously injured by simply following officers commands and complying, but were still shot or attacked. Fortunitly they have all been charged and found guilty, but that doesnt bring those killed back.

If the officers you listed were arrested charged and ultimately convicted they are criminals not cops. They are no different than any other killers. You can't compare the two and you should know that. If you are dealing with a lunatic policeman ... resisting, complying, running,lying down, fighting back, none of it would make a difference. I am referring to normal relations with officers. Do not resist and you won't get killed.
Btw some of the most respected leaders in the black community agree. Follow directions, be respectful, do not resist, even if the cop is a racist idiot. You can sue later. You can do noting but die if he shoots you.

I am sure he wasn't thinking I am a parolee and having a concealed weapon and pointing it at someone was violation either. Both videos only tell part of the story and in each the deseased had a gun. I'm not saying in either it was justified, I'm just saying in both cases there is a lot more story to come, just like with the Brown case where everything was made up by a punk who turned ass and ran.

I havent seen any reports of him pointing it at someone, just that he merely showed his gun to a homeless man to get him to back off as he was pestering him and thats who called 911 because he was upset (similar to what people who have CCWs do and want you to know it).
Maybe he was thinking that. But one has to ask, would you laying on your back, with 2 full grown officers pinning you down, both with guns pointed at you inches away from your chest, telling you repeatedly that they are going to shoot you, (presumably because you were reaching for a gun) would still attempt to reach your gun in your pocket? I mean, how in the world could that be possible? Overpower both men, reach into the pocket, turn the safety off, get the gun out of the pocket, point at them and shoot both officers while under point blank range? Impossible. He is either the dumbest guy on the planet thinking he could pull that off OR he was not thinking, because he was in shock. I think its the latter.

Rewording my comment here, sorry for pulling the first one. Having a concealed weapon on him in the first place is cause to send him back to jail. If you are what you say you are and have made street arrests in any number than you know anything is possible. You cannot see the pocket or that hand in the video. We have no idea if the gun was all the way in, half out or what. You also have no idea how bad this man did not want to go back to jail. As for what he could or could not do with 2 men attempting to subdue him, he had strength enough to fight after 2 tazer hits. The first arrest I saw was a drunk maybe 150lb man giving 3 officers everything they wanted and more. This man was double that. Lastly if you are what you say you are, would you want to be convicted solely by what was shown in that video or would you demand an investigation. I have never said they were innocent, I only maintain that more facts have to be gathered and verified before I will decide.

I'll just give you some insight on myself, rather than speaking for others... first, my main worry is my kids. If I can upbring them to understand respect civil rights and liberties, it's my way of fighting injustice. Second, I am a board member for our native American center where I live. I try to help my community in that way. Third, I realize that I can't fight someone's fight except from within my home. The injustice that occurs around America and the world is beyond my control. I'm an army veteran. I been to war and came back affected by PTSD. All that being said, I try to find humor in most everything.

Thank you for your service. As a combat veteran you understand how crucial training is for survival and mission success. My feeling is that uniform training in de-escalating confrontation and uniform accountability with federal oversight will be necessary to improve the imbalance and assure the citizens that they are being listened to.
