Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

I had to reblog this again because it just reduced me to tears. 

As most of you know, I am an attorney. And I am an attorney licensed in Minnesota. This is the state where I took an oath last year to uphold state and federal laws and to protect the rights of the citizens.

It PAINS me to see this. To see these unjust cops who I for all intents & purposes, have to stand along side. When they are abusing EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of POWER. Minneapolis/St. Paul have BEEN a war zone. I’m ashamed. I’m embarrassed.

Not all officers are bad. Please don’t let that be the take away. But police brutality is VERY FUCKING REAL. 

Watch this. If this doesn’t move you, if this doesn’t make you cry out in agony and want to change the world, I don’t know what will.

[trigger warning]

all cops are bad as long as they support and uphold this bullshit.

not actively working against it IS upholding this bullshit.

Here’s what you do if you want to afford trouble:

Apologize. It doesn’t matter if you did nothing wrong.

Give them your information up front.

Leave if they ask you to.

File a complaint.

No, it’s not necessarily right. Yes, they can still decide to detain you. Doing these things de-escalates the situation and increases your chances of leaving quickly. Filing the complaint afterwards is going to bring the situation to the attention of the higher-ups. If you don’t think that’s enough, post an article or a video online.

What the officers did was wrong, but he escalated the situation by refusing to give basic info and interrupting the officers. I am not defending them. I am saying there are things that could have been done to increase his chances. That’s it. It’s a chance. Nothing more, nothing less.
