This video is upsetting. It addresses real concerns of police brutality with a somewhat condescending primary school interaction structure that features blaming the victims reacting understandably when they are being abused. I would have been much more satisfied with the equality of position in this video if the attorney addressed the real underlying issue of these situations: knowing one’s RIGHTS when a police officer acts unprofessionally and being aware that police officers need to be held accountable for their actions as well. I am offended that this video is a “How to Yes Massah” your way to safety. The attorney speaks as if the police officer is a rabid dog willing to tear you apart with the slightest provocation. If that is the case, should that person really have a taser, a gun, and a club?!
It does not matter that one of the police officers was black as well. There is such thing as internalized racism and INTRAracial aggression. No matter who made this video, it stinks of de facto racism.
Oh shut up you stinkin’ social justice warrior.
I liked this, although there are some differences here in Canada, most of this applies. People all to often fall into police traps. I like the 10 rules idea. It makes it easier to remember.
This would be a lot better if they didn’t make it all against whitey.
What would make it better would be if people of color acted more white. You know like 1 standard deviation more of IQ
I didn’t see it that way, one of the cops were black after all.
