    Michael Bennett & the Las Vegas PD

    so are we just ignoring the fact he is playing the part and the video showed he was lying?

    I suppose he won't be standing for the national anthem from this point forward.

    This is why i hated the Kaep ****... The Situation of black people being treated Unfairly because of the color of their skin is 100 percent an issue... not debating that... Kaep and Bennet are just full of ****.

    That video does not show the entire incident.
    It's still possible he is telling the truth.

    Lol anyone would be a whiney ***** if they were treated the way he was.

    If I got handcuffed face down on the curb with an officer pointing a gun at my head and threatening to blow my brains out, I'd have a problem with it too.

    Law Enforcement in the United States needs a complete overhaul. From training to practice, it's a major failure. Sure there's good cops out there, but at this point, there's far too many improperly trained police on a power trip.

    Agreed on all points.

    It's just weird how the thread started out with the claim that Bennett was lying.

    Lying on his stomach?

    Yeah I don't get how anyone could say he was lying based on the video.... Unless they have some preconceived notions.

    Seriously. I'd be irate. Anyone here would be too.

    We hold everyone and everything accountable and to high standards...just not police. They can make mistakes, and when they do, they should be held accountable just like anyone else would be.

    Where's he lying? What is wrong with being upset about that? He's a black man who had a police pull a gun on him...he should've been terrified. He should be pissed.

    And something's gotta be done about these body cams never being on. What the hell is the point if they're always off? Would make a lot of this easier to deal with if we could see everything that happened. If the cops did nothing wrong, we'd know.

    The cops said that they found him hiding and he got up and ran away. In that scenario - responding to an active shooter and a guy you find runs away when he sees you - I think the cops have to bring the guy down. I think that's just doing their jobs, honestly, with that fact pattern if it's truly what happened. I don't think they did anything wrong in that case but it's reflective that we have a real problem if Bennett as an innocent man feels the need to run when he sees the cop and thinks they'll shoot him. If that's how he perceives the police who can blame him for running and freaking out. And if someone runs/freaks out like that the cop might very well take action not out of racism but him thinking Bennett is legit threat.

    Cops being racist and prejudice leads to POC being skeptical and them being skeptical makes them more likely to disrespect/distrust the police which leads to police having ingrained prejudice even of they didn't to begin with and the circle keeps going and going and going.

    We can implement all the training we want but that circle is going to be exceptionally difficult to break. Even with better training there's still going to be that built-in skepticism from POC and that's going to alwaysmake tension.

    I was once slammed face first on to the pavement with guns drawn from about 20 officers/highway patrol/sherriffs dept after getting pulled over due to someone driving by and mistaking a portable cd player (that used to plug in to the radio) for a gun. Had my car trashed as they tried to find the "gun", put in a cop car without being told what was going on for what seemed like an hour, and when it was all said and done, just said that I could leave without much explanation. I was 16/17 I think. Sued the police dept., got a new car.

    Scary stuff.

    Carson, trust me, even if you turn out to be a really bad QB, BDawk4Prez will always defend you on PSD.
