THE PROBLEM IS ATTITUDE: Police Officer: ‘if you don’t want to get shot…just do what I tell you.’ “The thing is, Officer Dutta (pictured) is also an Adjunct Professor of Homeland Security and Criminal Justice at Colorado Technical University. And he uttered those words not in the heat of the moment, but in an opinion piece in the Washington Post responding to widespread criticism of police attitudes and tactics currently on display in Ferguson, Missouri, but increasingly common nationwide. . . . If you have the attitude that you are owed deference and instant obediance by the people around you, and that you are justified in using violence against them if they don’t comply, we already have a problem. That’s especially true if official institutions back you up, which they do.”
The most disheartening thing about this post over at Instapundit is not the post itself, but the comments from “conservatives,” all of whom are so terrified of black crime they are willing to give the police ultimate and complete life or death power over them.
Say “Yes, sir.”
If a cop shoots you, he probably has a good reason to.
These people aren’t conservatives. My Dad was a conservative. He would have been appalled at the servile, bootlicking attitudes on display here. Of course, my Dad was an American. I have no idea what these submissive cowards are. Not any Americans I ever knew, though.
