    Didn't Holder say he has been harassed by white police in the past?

    And anyone here would be uncomfortable if a guy kept walking back and forth in front of your house and staring at you with his hands in his pockets. Of course they called the police, and of course the policeman pulled over on the call to investigate the situation. It wouldn't matter the race of the guy scoping you out in front of your house. You'd want it looked into, as would I.

    Now it's going to be the new thing to set up police officers like this. The end result is nobody is going to want to join the police force anymore. Then what?
    Don't worry, there's no shortage of people on an ego trip that need a job.


    "These cases" might not seem about race but people of color and the poor do seem to be taking the brunt of these low crime laws passed by politicians.

    When politicians raise taxes on free market items such as cigarettes so that poor people can't afford a pack it opens an underground market for selling single cigarettes. It's just supply and demand. Unfortunately, more often than not the police response to low level crimes is becoming more akin to military response than it is just giving someone a ticket or a fine.

    The question is...why does anyone need to be forcefully taken down to the ground for selling a cigarette in the first place? Would this low level crime have even happened if NY hadn't put a $5 tax on a pack of cigarettes that ultimately ended up taking Eric Gardner's life?


    These cases aren't about race.....they're about the low level crime "nanny state" tax laws... that politicians are passing that usually effect and hurt poor people the most.

    Pretty sure if the man hadnt resisted the police doing their job, he would be alive today.

    So...when that guy gets pulled over for suspicion of DUI and doesnt want to comply with officers, you think the officers should just say, meh...**** it...OK...carry on?

    Yea, that's what everyone says. Yet their limited legal knowledge seems to parallel everything from some show like NYPD Blue or something.

    No moving ones hands away is resisting, attempting to prevent from being cuffed with ones hands behind their back. At this stage of an encounter.....the Officer will attempt to take control. That is what he is taught to do.
