That is all that needs to be said.  If you believe this, than you haven't been treated in the sa ...

I don't give the police any reason to be mistreated by them.
When are you moving to Ferguson? I'm sure you would have many "encounters".

I think maybe its just hard for some whites to even acknowledge or believe there is a difference in how police treat you if you are a person of color in the US.  Even our attorney general holder stated that he understood where the anger was coming from.

I experienced it in my own town with my boyfriend who is native american.  We were stopped by the police walking home from a bar a few years back.  They had him stretched out on the sidewalk facedown and searched him.  He never once gave them a reason to be mistreated.  He complied with every command and was searched for absolutely no reason.  I, on the other hand, was arguing with the officers.  I was put in the back seat of the cruiser while he had two officers over him.

Its things like that which build a resentment towards police officers.  I know discrimination exists.  I have a pretty multi-racial extended family.  You can choose to deny it exists, but it does.

I'm trying to post a link of a video of Jon Stewart's response to this.  Very, very well stated.  I'll pm you

Yes I am an old white guy and learned long ago to treat the police with respect when dealing with them. good or bad you are not going to win against them in the field, you need to take it to the judge and make your case. The Press in the way they portray things will have you making the judgement outside of the court where it does not belong but then again if it bleeds it leads as they say.

Its not the press - its people.  Just talk to people that are not white and ask them about their experiences with the police.  

The media is just a reflection.  They don't invent this stuff.
