Every day it seems that the police give me a reason to hate them more.
Take this shooting.
Thoughts on this shoot?

The guy was covered from multiple angles.
One officer shouts “gun.”
Instantly, every trigger happy dumb fuck with a badge starts screaming different instructions.
The loudest is “get down.”
The fuck sort of instruction is that?
Get down. Do it. Stand up and then get down on the ground.
Did you drop your hands first?
That’s because the national inclination of people is to put their hands on the ground and lower themselves. Getting down with your hands up using only your legs is awkward and can be difficult.
So they gave him at least one order that caused a guy with his hands up to put his hands down and they shot him in the back.
Multiple instructions shouted at once. At least one bad and difficult to comply with instruction. Almost instant going to shooting.
This was terrible.
Now consider yourself in this situation.
You’re not a criminal. Just a guy with a carry permit, lawfully carrying, and maybe the cops confuse your car with another or some other shit happens.
What do you do to keep from dying?
Do you think if you say, “I’m confused, what do you want me to do,” they won’t shoot you in the back for not complying?
Of course they will. You hesitated in their life and death version of Simon Says, and now you’re in the morgue.
Cops should be punished for this, but they won’t.
I’m not backing the blue when they do shit like this. Fuck ’em.
