    Pay attention and maybe, you all might learn something....

    When LE tells you to lie face down on the ground with your hands behind your neck, it's for his own freaking protection and not because the suspect is black/yellow/red/purple... If you do as you are told, the cop more often than not will realize that he is mistaken and you are innocent... BUT, if you chose to resist ...aka not comply they have every right to use whatever means they have available to protect themselves..

    I would suggest a corollary - some persons will always assume police misconduct.

    IMO, neither are always correct.

    Cop, separated by the truck bed, shoots and kills black man getting out of the truck with a knife in his hand.

    Cops, having not received any report and not seeing any untoward action, coming upon someone from behind, who was not firing what they believe is a real gun... They order him to drop the weapon and he turns in response to the call. Not knowing if he even understood or fully heard what was said, he is gunned down as he turns.
    What bs? I've not ever seen you respond to a link in this forum where you didn't side with the cops no matter the offense.

    Not to mention the unarmed homeless guy was facing down on the ground being pinned down by tons of dead weight on his back.

    That bs. What you just said.
    They have no need to know of any other position.

    It is nothing more than an attempt to pigeon hole folks who the person doesn't agree with.

    That's simply bs

    The totality of the circumstances/reasonableness is what you will be judged on in court....hence, the not guilty verdict
