    After my first year of college, I spent a couple of months in LA. One morning, I was walking down the street and a cop pulled up next to me on a motorcycle and motioned me over to him with his finger real authoritatively...had the reflecto-shades and everything. I held out the orange juice container I was drinking from cause I figured he thought it was alcohol or something...had no idea what else he could possibly want from me. Proceeds to tell me that I crossed on red a block before...and I looked around first and then literally asked him if I was on Candid Camera because I thought it was a goof. He got real serious and asked me for my ID and then said "Maybe in NY you ignore 'Don't Walk' signals, but here in CA you obey them." And he let me off with a warning. I wish I'd thought to ask him to please write me up so that I could have framed the ticket.

    No sympathy. Act like a feral animal and shit happens. The cameraman should have been beaten and tased as well.

    there are certainly situations where the police have crossed the line
    certainly some police are bad apples or just in over their heads

    but you can't act like an asshole over nothing
    even if the cop was being a bit of a dick
    you suck it up and take the ticket and attitude

    silly people

    the student was wearing his brand new clothing, therefore, he refused to sit on the dirty ground, as directed by officer friendly...i blame Abraham lincoln/ Obama for giving the negro a false sense of full citizenship

    Don't blame Lincoln. He really didn't care for the blacks either. "“I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races. I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people."

    Correct headline should be "Resisting detention leads to police beating your ass"

    I can guarantee that I'll never get tazed, beaten, shot, or executed by cops. I'll always comply when I interact with them -- even if they're wrong and I'm not a criminal. Very simple. Anyone can do it.

    At my work, sometimes the company violates my contract. My recourse? Nothing, even if they are wrong. I have to comply now, then grieve it later, otherwise I get fired. Same with the cops, comply now and fight later.

    I got stopped a few years ago for jaywalking in Hollywood.
    It sucked. I got a ticket and went about my day.
    No beat down. No arrest.
    Not sure what the end game is with all this fighting the police
