Response to Eliot Rosewater (Reply #18)

Thu May 17, 2018, 10:33 AM

75. When being confronted by the cops,

one tiny mistake can get me killed. My 42 years of life can be erased because I stepped wrong or had my hands 3 inches lower than a cop likes. Their financial risks should be that great so they are extra careful in whom they shoot.
Remember the incident where the cops were Z15 feet away from the guy, holding automatic weapons at him.”hold your hands up. HIGHER! If you do anything else, we will shoot you. If you’re going to fall forward, you fall on your face.”
He’s there, begging for his life, and they order him to crawl forward. He reaches back at one point, probably to adjust his pants (no gun was found on him), and they gun him down.
This man’s small mistake ended his life. Shouldn’t a massive mistake, like letting 17 children die, cost the cop anything?
