Yup. I've spent the last seven months organizing with inner-city Indigenous people re: police practices where I live. Neither me nor any white person I know in this town -- including the activists -- has ever been arbitrarily stopped by police. Whereas literally every Indigenous male I know in this city has been fucked with on the regular, including a close friend being violently detained for no reason on his way to a Xmas party I was co-hosting and another friend being arrested and dragged out of his home in front of his kids for a "cat at large" violation (as in their pet cat was outside). His children have grown up terrified of the police.

Wrong wrong wrong. The crucial difference is that, while both could kill you, one can do so in broad daylight among witnesses with near-guaranteed impunity.

Once you see that "draw attention to yourself" includes minor infractions and regular, everyday human behavior stuff, this advice becomes useless.

Matt Taibbi has a good recent piece on the "just behave!" narrative here.

or maybe you're just a person who has had enough of getting terrorized arbitrarily by "crazy people with guns"?

For real.

There's a lot of this shit going around the Internet right now, ie. white people saying that if that person had just behaved themselves, they wouldn't be dead. That whole mentality is akin to victim blaming when it comes to sexual assault. Sure, personally, I act much like you described when dealing with police, I stay calm and keep my distance, but I'm also not constantly being targeted and victimized by police.

I'm not about to call someone an idiot for getting frustrated after being fucked with by cops on a regular basis.

Fuck all that.


You're right of course. I am absolutely coming from a place of privilege as a white guy so I obviously have not walked a mile.

For me my fear of guns outweighs all else. I don't like them. I absolutely don't trust people who own them or want to be around them. As a result, if I do have to encounter anyone like that, I'm going to be deferential and stay away (so I was also wrong when I say I don't "fear" cops either).

It's not fair for me to have expected my experience to be universal amongst everyone. The points everyone made are valid and taken respectfully as a teachable moment for myself.

While not the danger that immediately springs to mind, a few folks have been hurt as collateral damage during police chases recently.

From the sounds of it, it's probably safer not to get shitty with a cop, because they'll probably kill you in broad daylight and try and hide the murder.

Well, fuck Chicago then.

You know, that's exactly what happens to me every time I go to Chicago. It sucks but Chicago-style pizza is just so good that I keep coming back.

Blarg. Been seeing some people in my Facebook feed posting this story. Well duh, of course not every police encounter ends with a citizen being murdered.

So, I’m driving to my office to turn in my weekly paperwork. A headlight is out. I see a Tucson Police Department squad vehicle turn around and follow me. I’m already preparing for the stop.

The lights go on and I pull over. The officer asks me how I’m doing, and then asks if I have any weapons.

“Yes, sir. I’m a concealed carry permit holder and my weapon is located on my right hip. My wallet is in my back-right pocket.”

The officer explains for his safety and mine, he needs to disarm me for the stop. I understand, and I unlock the vehicle. I explain that I’m running a 7TS ALS holster but from the angle, the second officer can’t unholster it. Lead officer asks me to step out, and I do so slowly. Officer relieves me of my Glock and compliments the X300U I’m running on it. He also sees my military ID and I tell him I’m with the National Guard.

Lead officer points out my registration card is out of date but he knows my registration is up to date. He goes back to run my license. I know he’s got me on at least two infractions. I’m thinking of how to pay them.

Officers return with my Glock in an evidence back, locked and cleared. “Because you were cool with us and didn’t give us grief, I’m just going to leave it at a verbal warning. Get that headlight fixed as soon as possible.”

I smile. “Thank you, sir.”

I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities.

Maybe…just maybe…that notion is bunk.

Maybe if you treat police officers with respect, they will do the same to you.

Police officers are people, too. By far and large, most are good people and they’re not out to get you.

I’d like to thank those two officers and TPD in general for another professional contact.

We talk so much about the bad apples who shouldn’t be wearing a badge. I’d like to spread the word about an example of men who earned their badges and exemplify what that badge stands for.

Maybe, just MAYBE, being in the National Guard (and probably also the NRA) helped that one guy get a pass. Being an Uncle Tom motherfucker can't have hurt either.

I saw this too... this dude may be black but he's also ex military and most likely a right wing gun nut. Hey genius.. if you're going to conceal a pistol maybe don't put your wallet in your back pocket.

What's staggering - or more accurately, staggeringly sad - about that is that the dude is totally compliant from the word go AND STILL SEEMS IMPRESSED/GRATEFUL THAT THE COPS DIDN'T SHOOT HIM.

What, no video evidence? How do we know this really happened?

Also, classic case of Stockholm Syndrome?

My Facebook feed has been full of that shit for months. White people love black folks who commend cops and lecture protesters and rant about sagging pants, etc.

How can they be racist if a black person agrees with them?
