It would seem citizens are constantly being shot dead by police in America but how many of these cases could be said of miscommunication? People panic, they fumble through things looking for paperwork, are they grabbing a gun? Perhaps they are, this might be your last traffic stop officer you will never see your family again. Those who criticize cops dont stop to think their daily 9-5 routine is a constant threat to their very survival its extremely easy to judge when you are a purple haired barista working a cozy part time job at Starbucks and still living in mommies house. I was never taught how to “handle” police growing up perhaps we all should, seems like a no brainer to have formal instruction.

Procedural actions like rolling all the windows down, turning on your flashers, turning on the cabin lights, have your documents close by and easy to access, keep both hands on the steering wheel and if you make movements tell them why such as when reaching for things in the glove box etc, you never know when you might run into a trigger happy cop. The USA is a dangerous place we have aggressive police because our streets are brimming with lethal weapons.
