Black Community – How To Stay Safe When Dealing With Law Enforcement
I wanted to share this message with you today to let you know it is time for the Black Community start playing it smart and safe when it comes to dealing with law enforcement.
If you have been paying attention to what’s going on in the news, you will know that is it open season on us.
The cops can brutalize and/or kill us at will, with no regard for our civil rights or lives, and will receive no punishment.
So we have to start protecting ourselves by moving smarter.
If you find yourself in an encounter with police, do not mouth off to the officer.
Put your emotions and pride aside, and address the officer calmly and respectfully.
The main justification they are using for shooting us is by claiming we were “resisting arrest” and they felt their lives were in danger.
We really have no chances at winning when they tell that to a judge and jury, so we must completely avoid getting ourselves in those kinds of situations where our actions can be misinterpreted.
Full compliance is the name of the game.
If you get stopped in a car, roll down both your front windows, keep your hands in plain view on the steering wheel and announce to officer that you will be reaching for your wallet or going in your glove box to give him your paperwork, then ask: “Is that OK with you”?
Wait for the officer to acknowledge it is OK before you make any further moves.
If he/she does not respond, repeat “My wallet is in my pocket/glove box, is it OK for me to reach for it?” and wait for acknowledgement.
If you are in the street, and an officer approaches you, keep your hands by your side, and ask: “What is the problem officer”?
Again, wait for his reply, then calmly explain your case, if need be.
Do not give him any reason to pull his gun or to feel antsy and shoot you because…
You will be dead.
Your family will lose a loved one.
And the officer will get a paid vacation.
It’s not fair but that’s the way it is.
So because I love you, I felt the need to share this with you.
Pass it on and stay safe.
