I am interested in what you guys think about this video:
It is always interesting to me what regular folk think about the police. Growing up in a black family in Chicago I am amazed when people (usually white) have the admiration for law enforcement that they do. I will never forget when I went to an all black high school when I was downtown and saw a group of white high schoolers who saw a police car, and they all ran up to the squad car to say hi and make friends with the officers. This is just a complete impossibility for a group of black high school students.
This video and the comments in it really make me sick. It reminds me of The Preacher where Jesse’s father in Vietnam, has a suddenly realization and starts ranting to his black squadmate about how Uncle Sam is a lie, the whole war is bullshit, everything is bullshit. His squadmate’s response “So this is what it’s like to be white??”
I think it’s fucking incredible how the SHEEP in the comments think that you DESERVE to be abused and mocked for trying to use your RIGHTS guaranteed by the constitution. These people LITERALLY think that police are the lords of the united states and if you do not comply with whatever their whim is, you must “have it comming”. They will follow any voice of authority, right or wrong, they are cowards and this pastor is only 1,000 times the man any of them could ever hope to be. You don’t HAVE rights unless other braver people put them to the test, the system is constantly trying to erode them, especially post 9/11 when the entire world changed (from our perspective).
My earliest memory in life is hearing my uncle wail like an animal while getting beaten in his jail cell by multiple “police officers” while he was handcuffed.
Anyways, rant off, just wondering if you guys had anything to say, if you feel he deserved it for “resisting”, please explain in detail why the police should be able to rake someone’s face across glass and tazer them that many times to allow an illegal search.
