Don't Tase Me Bro!

Willis Eschenbach

In my youth my mom gave me what black people call "The Talk", about what to do when stopped by the cops.

• DON'T RESIST ARREST
• DON'T RUN
• Follow their orders
• Keep hands in sight
• Move slowly

Critical rules for people of all colors, as we saw in the recent Memphis killing of a black man by 5 black officers. Like a fool, he resisted arrest and ran away.

Does this excuse his killing? Not one bit. From all evidence it was murder, plain and simple … but if he'd just listened when his mom gave him "The Talk" he'd almost assuredly be alive today.

And in any case, cops aren't the threat to black people … nor are white people the threat. Here's what kills black people.

May be an image of text that says 'Who/What Kills Black People in the US DATA: FBI, kff.org, & WaPo Shootings Dataset, 2018 20000 15000 Deaths 2018 10000 5000 Killed by Police Murdered by White People Murdered by Black People Killed by Drug OD Killed by Cancer Killed by Cardiac Disease'

Tim adds:

Like it or not the police own the streets. (We should like it; it's what keeps the criminals from owning them.) Yeah it's galling sometimes to be harassed by cops with nothing better to do than pull you over for a taillingt out, but they are only doing what the electred authorities tell them to do, which means what the public wants. Bear that in mind; their power comes from above (remember when Jesus told Pilate that, absolving him to a degree of what he was forced to do.) You have to remember that the police own the streets and they have the power to take your life if they feel it necessary. To provoke such an action is madness. Resisting them is like resisting the tide; it's coming in whether you like it or not. You can either work with it or go under.

1 I would take issue with the part about police, "only doing what the elected authorities tell them to do, which means what the public wants." Where, in this country, do elected officials do what the public wants?

2 Well I stand corrected Bill.

Actually, at a local level, quite often. I once spoke to my alderman after getting a bunch of harassing calls by the local P.D. and he told took the heat "we tell the cops to go around and do that".  He said it was because otherwise he'd never hear the end of it from busybodies in the neighborhood. I get that. (I had been having trouble with a particular cop, who kept ticketing my wife for stuff like having one tire barely touching our grass; he was sweet on her.) 

But your point is well taken and correct in most regards.

BTW After I called the alderman the trouble with this guy ended, and he was fired not long after.
