Do you agree with what this man did? Do you think more citizens need to do this so the police truly live up to that ideal of protecting and serving us? Do you think the police officer reacted well? Would the cop have a different reaction if the guy wasn't white?

Voted for All government employees should serve the people and need to be kept in check by the citizenry.
Police are normal people like us. They can make mistakes but their mistakes can cost a lot more than a regular people. So they need to be kept in check like anybody else.
Just because they have power it does not mean we should not control them.
The idea of power is sicking me to be honest. People can do many evil things when they have the power. So including even the president; everyone needs to be in check.1
