    oh giddy! this one incident negates all other historical and possibly ongoing mishandling matters.

    what do you think worked favorably for this black man?

    Act like a well adjusted rational person and skin color won't usually matter...

    I am reminded of this video: (graphic language)

    Why is that? Mr Hildreth was very civil and followed the officers instructions.
    You might be able to make that claim with someone else in a similar situation that exhibited very bad behavior and lived.

    I think that type of generalization is typically a right-wing thing. Everything must either be black or white, you're with us or against us. Remember that? I don't recall seeing liberals here bashing ALL cops.

    If you respect the officers and you follow their directions, nothing happens(majority of the time). As in every profession, there are always some bad apples.

    You have it backwards, considering how rarely an incident occurs at all given how many stops occur every single day.

    I wouldn't go that far. I would expect this to be closer to the norm than most of what we read about. Neither case examines the proportions of normal traffic stops vs those that involve shootings. The main issue with the others is that they should be virtually non-existent rather than simply represent a small percentage of overall traffic stops. There are also things which would improve this situation. Departments should be proactive about moving officers with anger issues or patterns of inappropriate behavior out of roles in which they may have to interact with the general public. Prosecutors should not be responsible for cases involving departments that they have to work with on a regular basis.

    I think it’s pretty clear the vast majority of traffic stops - even on black men wearing hoodies - go like the one in the post here.
