For those who are concerned that there is an excess of violence on the part of our police, there is a relatively simple way to address their concerns.

When given an order by a police officer, comply immediately; no running, no waving of arms, any attitude or loud complaints. Such actions will immediately make officers feel like the situation has escalated and they are in danger. Simply do what the officer says. Comply immediately; complain later (if you feel that you’ve been mistreated).

All parents should teach this to their children.
