Well, maybe racist is the wrong term. I think idiots might be better. The police got all bent out of shape while Moore was shooting the video below, as evidenced by the district commander showing up at the scene.
Lets face it, cops aren’t known for being enlightened thinkers. Lets face it, policing is a profession where one simply has too much time on ones hands, and when that happens the demons of the mind come out to play.
But this Michael Moore video makes a good point, particularly toward the end with the cell phone example. I shudder to think how I might react were my SO ever to be attacked /killed by police for such a nonsense reason. Over mistaking a wallet or a cellphone or even a candy bar for a weapon.
Anyhow, watch the video.
