From a Washington Post OpEd, an LAPD officer explains that absolute submission, even to unlawful requests, is the best way to stay safe. Because cops only hurt you if you make them. (link)

…if you believe (or know) that the cop stopping you is violating your rights or is acting like a bully, I guarantee that the situation will not become easier if you show your anger and resentment.

Not only am I going to violate your civil rights, but don’t even dare look upset about it.

Police are legally permitted to use deadly force when they assess a serious threat to their or someone else’s life. Save your anger for later, and channel it appropriately. Do what the officer tells you to and it will end safely for both of you.

If you look angry, I might assess you as a serious threat and shoot you dead in the street. And no one wants that, right. 

We have a justice system in which you are presumed innocent; if a cop can do his or her job unmolested, that system can run its course. 

Of course, as a cop, I am not encumbered with notions of “innocence”. So don’t get all in your feelings when I harass you for no reason.

While most citizens are courteous and law abiding, the subset of people we generally interact with everyday are not the genteel types.

You know, not white middle class people who look like they can afford lawyers to sue me for violating their rights or abusing their persons.

FUCK ALL OF THEM.

This is some bullshit

This sounds like a batterer trying to justify spousal abuse. This kind of thinking requires such a high sense of entitlement, I can’t even imagine it. Just because you have the power, doesn’t mean you have no moral responsibility in how you use it. Also, just because something is legal doesn’t mean it is ethical.

Yes, exactly! “If you didn’t roll your eyes at me, I wouldn’t have to knock sense into you!” I knew some of these bullies think exactly this, but its a whole new level to have the gall to publish it in a newspaper. Just wow!

Is this a joke? Cops are SUPPOSED to be trained in dealing with those things. They are basically told to suck it up and deal. A cop once told me that they meet people who are having a very bad day and therefore understand that people are going to be emotional and say things to them. Even if the cop is just walking down the street and people say something “mean” to them, they are trained to just let it go. They are supposed to understand that they’ll have to put up with it and not react to it.
The problem is there are too many cops out there who only wanted to be a cop for some ego boosting shit. They want people to see them as god and cannot fathom anyone challenging their authority.
