    I think this is a good idea, although I think it's useful for us all to keep the police in check, not just Black people.

    This could be tricky: Imagine you have been pulled over and asked to put your hands above your head, and you are trying to inform people by taking out your mobile from your pocket.
    Bam! Police thought you were reaching for your gun.

    At the very least, this cop was actually fired and arrested, which is unusual in cases like this. He (could) get up to 20 years but I think we all know that's not going to happen. He will most likely get a slap on the wrist....probation or something.....then people will get angry and forget about it within a week as usual. icon_confused.gif

    That's so terrifying. If it hadn't been caught on video then that cop wouldn't have even been fired for it. It's horrifying to think about all the killings cops have committed that haven't been caught on video.... And no, white people are not treated like that. Cops just don't open fire on white people who they pull over for not wearing a seatbelt.icon_eek.gificon_confused.gif
