    Re: Democrats take to House floor in ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ Ferguson protest

    The "hand up, don't shoot" training is ideal and this should be taught in every school. Seriously, kids need to be taught exactly that. Have school teens rehearse it. TEACH KIDS HOW TO ADDRESS AND RESPOND TO POLICE.

    TOP OF THAT LIST?


    If the police are pointing a gun at you, remember that slogan "hands up, don't shoot." DO IT.

    Hell, that should be a test question in graduation requirement tests.

    Question: "What should you do if a police officer is pointing a gun at you?

    A. Run like hell
    B. Tell the officer to "go to hell."
    C. Put your hands up and say "don't shoot."
    D. Try to get the gun away from the officer
    E. Put your hands in your pocket

    Any student who doesn't get that one right has to take the civics class again.

    That would eliminate nearly every instance of questionable police shootings.

    It's a sad state of affairs when we have to teach that kinda stuff to children. Police (the ones in question, not saying this of all cops) should really exercise more caution and common sense on the job. Don't put your goddamn finger on the goddamn trigger until you have assessed the situation properly. Pretty simple stuff.

    Ferguson protest: Hakeen Jeffries, Yvette Clarke, Al Green go 'Hands up, don't shoot' on House floor - Washington Times

    Saw this on Morning Joe's show (complete with pictures of the idiots doing it). He's about to boil over. This is day 2 of his rants about the idiots who are perpetuating the lie that the PD shoots people whose hands are raised in surrender.

    Nice. Now our lawmakers are doing this? And this is supposed to help the current situation in Ferguson....how?

    You want to object to the GJ's decision....fine. I get that and while I disagree, I support it. But to see lawmakers intentionally carrying on a lie and implying that the police officers shot Brown while he was in surrender is disgusting. But except for Joe Scarborough and a few right wingers, nobody will call them to task for this.
    That is just ridiculous. They of all people should respect the justice system.

    Brown did not have his hands up in the air when shot.

    I luv the part how Dyson clings to his title and Hat of.....I am a Minister.

    Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani claimed that attention focused on disproportionately white police forces in minority-heavy communities obscured the problem of black-on-black violence, which got a rise out of professor and MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson, who argued Giuliani was engaged in a massive false equivalency.

    “First of all, most black people who commit crimes against other black people go to jail,” Dyson said. “Number two, they are not sworn by the police department as agents of the state to uphold the law….White people who kill black people do not go to jail.”

    At that point Giuliani took off his glasses, which apparently is his sign that it’s time to rumble. “[Black on black crime] is the reason for the heavy police presence in the black community,” Giuliani claimed. “Why don’t you cut it down so so many white police officers don’t have to be in black areas?… The white police officers wouldn’t be there if you weren’t killing each other.”

    This is the defensive mechanism of white supremacy in your mind,” Dyson said.....snip~




    Btw.....note that line by Dyson. Right there at the end.....its why he should never be back on TV again!

    Kids need to be taught reality, not just about how things ideally should be.

    I never said otherwise. I was simply establishing that it is a sad state of affairs.

    No...thats is an appropriate response to a riot. Every one of those individuals has a family. They have a right to safely do their job and return home to them.

    How many people died in Ferguson because of cops in that gear?

    "I am a minister". Al Sharpton's a man of the cloth too. Doesn't he do an exemplary job of promoting peace, understanding and harmony? Kind of like Reverend Wright.

    I'm surprised Rudy didn't get beaten up for his comments.
