    Whatever happened to: "Yes, sir." "No, sir." "Yes, sir." "Thank you, sir." "No sir, I won't, sir." "Enjoy the rest of your day, sir." ... ?? ...

    ... based on the hypothesis that:
    1. police officers respond positively in interactions with people who make an attempt to be civil and treat them with respect;
    2. most police -- at least American -- would rather be sitting in Dunkin Donuts.

    That's not an argument; that's an opinion or assertion that you cannot back up with anything but... your opinion. Into the trash pile of arguments it goes.

    If they remain cops given the current state of our police forces, yes.

    Doubtful, as I look white, smell white, speak white and don't carry around any guilt over it.

    Not an argument. If it's exactly what a liberal would say, however, it should be fairly easy for you to refute it, point by point. Sharpen your crayons.

    I've had run-ins with 'bad' cops. It's just the nature of humans performing a particular job.

    However, this video represents how I view the police and how I see the majority of them carrying out their duties. Notice, it's not just a 'biker with a gun', it's a black man with a gun.

    Obviously these cops deserve the ire of most Americans and are an example of police officers acting as through they are an occupation force. Then add in the overt racism demonstrated there and we have a real problem.

    Drowning the melting snowflakes in their tears for the lost narrative.

    That biker was very polite. I didn't catch any racism from him at all.

    The whole thing is a ruse to point to cops are all bad. That's a typical liberal rant. No need to waste time on each point when they all are to lead to one conclusion. Well, two conclusions. one is cops are bad people and, two, you are a liberal. You got this from a trash pile. maybe in Cuba you ahve that problem but we Americans don't.
    Democrats are a clear and present danger to our democracy and our society.

    Crybabies trying to tar everyone with the same brush. Radical leftists, especially anti-fa and BLM, live for this stuff.

    Guess they are part of the abnormals.
