    If you don't break the laws or provoke the police, then what are you scared of? You have nothing to be scared of.

    But they don’t endanger their lives everyday. That’s propaganda. Landscapers have a higher death on the job rate. Don’t get me wrong - I think their job is very stressful. I think they should all have master degrees and get paid about twice as much. They should be selected for their ability to keep their cool under extreme pressure and deescalate. What we have now is a lot of bullies with badges that the so called “good” cops protect and cover for.

    It's important to have police, and many of them do a great job. That doesn't mean we shouldn't deal with the ones that don't.

    That's a very interesting concept. But my father and nephew are both police officers. I assure you that any domestic call is endangering their lives. And otherwise. I think what we need is to go above the officers and seek out better judges. judges have power to change those problems.

    You really hate police it seems, to all the cop haters, let's just remove them for 1 month from society and see how it works, does man want to go back to the survival of the fittest jungle, where lawlessness rules?

    Speaking as a veteran activist, I don't trust the police either. I have my reasons because of what I've seen. The following articles have circulated among NDN activist/minority activist circles I frequent.

    Driving while black, brown, or Indian

    I have many friends that are indian, and the tribal authority like the police, it usually means less dead indians from drunk drivers.

    Exactly alcoholism is a huge problem for the Native American communities, cops are protecting them from drunk drivers, they also appreciate the border patrol stopping coyetes from using their reservations as trafficking and smuggling routes.

    The drunk drivers aren't always indian. In fact there are many indians killed by white drunks.

    That doesn't address the ongoing problem of racial profiling of black people, Mexicans, and NDNs.

    Look if It a certain segment of the community that fit the profile that are selling drugs, committing robberies, or as they call it "licks" then profiling is needed, if certain groups fit a profile of a terrorist or a drug trafficker, profiling is OK, it saves lives. Just like if certain young white male on opiods, and play violent video games online or just are loners in trench coats who shoot up schools, profiling is OK.

    Drunk driving knows no race, the laws need to be stiff on that, too many drunk driving incidents have destroyed lives.

    At least we can agree on this point. That's a positive step forward.

    Yes that is correct. If you go to my Indian tribe territory, you will find many sings warning of drinking and driving. Because many Indians have been killed that way.

    This statement right here is racism. Skin color is not a "profile." Drug dealers have a particular behavior, it has nothing to do with race.

    Sure, but saying Oinc, Oinc to cops is still a violation of authority. Isn't it?
