    Let's say the police are the very devil! They profile all Black people as up to no good. They're gonna pull over Black folks first. They are racist racist racist! They want to shoot, choke, beat up black citizens. Whatcha gonna do?!

    Let's say the above is all true, SO:
    When any get stopped by the police, it's a good idea if we get all mouthy and challenge the cop in a stare down with aggressive attitude?

    Call him names nose to nose?

    Do the best resist we can 'cause we got rights -- to provoke the cop? He may have a license to kill; but, we've got a driver's license, a fishing license and a Costco card.

    Refuse the ticket, shrug off the hands on attempt for the officer to arrest us. Then get into a twisty-turny struggle with him which brings more cops? who join the wrestle to take down a perceived resistant arrest?

    Run and jump into a car and go on a 80 mile an hour chase through the side streets and 110 on the freeway fleeing the five police cars and helicopter. When finally there's no place left to drive, jump out of the car and run run run, and then ask yourself whose coming up on you with the road RAGE?

    Go protest by destroying, setting on fire, running out black businesses who were only holding on by a thin shoestring? And all of this visible to the whole world? This is all fodder for the nut cases to come out from the shadows to encourage distruction of which most were coming in from somewhere else for the par-tay.

    Make sure you rake all of your hate and anger against police at the breakfast table with the kids, so your twelve year old will go out to save the day with his toy gun with the orange tip removed.

    Go get Rev. Sharpton to stand with the community in a news moment.

    How About instead:

    Doing everything in a quiet mode, so people don't get hurt in a ripple effect one way or another, even shot.

    Then go get the smooth LAWYER with the big teeth instead, funded by the community to bring suit against the officer, police department, and bring it with a professional public relations manner?
    Organized peace worked for Dr. King who brought racial change to a whole nation, even the western nations of the world.

    On the bright side, people in USA can say they want the police out and actually mean it. It is proof things are better than in other places on Earth.

    While Dr. King was having the people sign a promise to protest peacefully who joined with him, there were others wanting even "the bullet". Who was it who created the great change. It was those whose struggle was mighty, but peaceful. Civil disobedience was sit ins, not burning up ones own community.

    What is the profiling you are talking about. Tell us what my profiling is...

    Okay. Let's pull the police out of the community. No police. Now what is going to happen?
