    But you seem to be putting blame on the kid instead of the police officers. The kids attitude/disrespect should have zero impact on him being arrested.

    If I am walking home in snowdrifts unproperly clothes, I wouldn't want to waste my time chit-chatting with anyone. And let's not talk about my mood under those conditions. I wouldn't be a happy camper, to begin with.

    Sometimes people are having crappy days and I wouldn't take anything they say personally. I just give them space to figure it out.

    These cops were working from their egos and not their creed. To Serve and Protect.

    Any rationalization of their actions is undermining this code. Who did they serve in arresting this kid and how did it protect the people they work for?

    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.

    What narrative?

    He just wanted to be left alone after a long day and not be harassed, that's a narrative?

    what ended up happening here, that I said was wrong. but you know there are a lot of times when that does not happen, right?

    You have no idea their intentions. We DO know the KID'S intention was simply to be allowed to walk home.

    Maybe he should have called AOC.
    I didn't say he was more at fault. there was much more fault for the police, but it wasn't 100%. it may be something as simple as 5% Reese for being dismissive, and that action caused a reaction.

    I can agree with all of that. but why couldn't Reese have acted better, or even accepted a ride home when then was offered.

    I already provided the narrative.

    "Young Black men like me, we're scared of the police because they kill and arrest us," Rodney Reese said. "That's why I didn't want to answer a question, I wanted to go home."
    he already had his mind made up that these police were going to be in the wrong simply becuase he was black as if all police are/must be racist.

    except for the fact that I have said many times now that the police had more fault, but some would rather ignore that and push some ****ing narrative.

    They reacted to someone not acting submissive toward them.

    No, he has his mind made up that blacks are generally treated more aggressively by police.

    That's a fact. We should all have our mind made up on that.
