    With past horror stories about cops doing wellness checks, do you really want to die on this hill?

    If the guy said he was doing ok and is heading home, that should have been the end of it. But no, they had to escalate it into a police confrontation and arrest. Over what, a wellness check?

    A Filipino mom calls the police to help with her ex-military son who was suffering from mental problems. They put their knee into his neck to control him and now he is dead. Wellness check done, problem handle.

    When I become a senile old fart please don't call the cops to check up on me.

    There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    but speculation leads to.. racist police harassing/assaulting a black man for nothing.

    this escalated beyond what it needed to, but it didn't get to get to that.
    correct, it escalated beyond what it needed to......escalated by the officers

    Blaming the victim again. One has the right to refuse help or chit-chat with cops. It was a wellness check for him, about his safety. If he told them to f off, he was well within his right, or should people go to jail for hurting cops feelings. Once again it was a wellness check.

    Every time these stories come up, you are on the cop side and explain in detail that person moved too fast or slow or has the wrong mentality. Isn't that bias?

    During this massive countrywide snowstorm, I have many times walked down the main street because the sidewalks are icy and slick.

    Unless a cop's life is in danger, when is punching the arrested person okay? Considering we know that isn't the case when there were 4 cops there and the man was unarmed, the rest of what you're saying is immaterial. Its police brutality.

    Texas police arrested an 18 year old High School kid for walking home from his job at Wal-Mart.

    Police were called and stated they were doing a welfare check. But if you were checking on his welfare and he said he was fine and did not need police, why continue to ask him questions and follow him?

    Clearly, his welfare was not their primary concern. Suspicion of a crime was. This is why there is distrust for police.
    They just be harassing people on camera now, they dont even care.

    I wasn't dieing on any hill, tho, I was just saying a welfare check is more than just 'you ok' 'yes I'm ok' and done. I was just suggesting that to do their job they needed to feel his mental and physical capacity at the time was normal....and they took it well beyond that.

    My bad. I just tired of hearing sad outcomes when people call cops to help with mentally ill relatives. A mentally ill homeless person was shot dead by three cops for throwing rocks at them. These guys are just saying f it and drawing their guns in these incident.

    I understand, and you'd have every right to be many emotions beyond tired of this kind of thing. You'd also think officers themselves would have heightened mindsets on how they handle these situations. Fortunately THIS one apparently resulted in no physical harm or violence.

    Yeah, he survives a police encounter. It wouldn't be so bad if one can see changes happening to stop these kinds of incidents.

    This perfectly encapsulates how you don't even have a rudimentary understanding of how racism works. It's like you've never experienced real life before.

    while that may be true, that's a HORRIBLY skewed approach for a company to take...certainly one as mammoth as Coca Cola....the terminology shouldn't be making it sound as if to be white means you are those things listed

    Because he under no obligation to do so. Declining a ride from the police is not an arrest-able offense.

    Itís not speculation to determine police harassed this man for nothing, itís literally what they did.
