Hostile Police – Death Threats Upon America
The below video is intentionally absent of the sound in the majority of the clips. I realize that some will say that without sound, we won’t know the context. However, without sound, it’s easier to concentrate on body movements. I learned something very important. What I learned is that when humans are placed in situations of being helpless by people who can kill them, we resist surrendering to death.
I also learned that some police officers need no provocation to use excessive force and even kill. When putting the clips together I asked myself, what if it were me? What would I do? Would any action change the actions of the police?
The clips in the video involve police from various states. I think they all attended the same training where it has now become common-place for them to use choke holds, and place all of their weight on the faces and necks of people thereby giving them the impression that they are smothering the life from them. It is a death threat. It is a death threat made by people authorized to use weapons of death.
When police present a hostile environment by using such physical force, the common human reaction is to survive by kicking and screaming. People do not know if the force used on them is intended to kill, and too many police in America have conveyed to citizens that they will kill, blame the victim for failure to cooperate, and get away with murder.
Why do the police feel so free to touch civilians?
People are not robots. If members of law enforcement are so afraid for their own safety that they must treat people like animals going to the slaughter, then they are in the wrong career.
