    HOW ARE THEY FACING, QUOTE: "NEGATIVE OPPOSITION DAY-IN AND DAY-OUT, THE AVERAGE "BLACK PERSON DOES NOT EVEN CALL THE POLICE), NOTICE ON EVERY VIDEO, "COPS ARE AGITATING & STARTING THESE SICK-LETHAL-CONFRONTATION." LET'S GET THAT STRAIGHT FIRST, THEY ARE WALKING UP TO BLACKS BOTHERING THEM FOR NO REASON WHAT-SO-EVER, ALL OF WHAT THEY ARE CLAIMING THAT BLACKS ARE DOING "ARE BOLD-FACED-BLATANT-LIES." WHAT? DO THINK WE CAN'T SEE OR HEAR WHAT "THESE CRIMINAL-MINDED COPS ARE DOING, IN AND OUT OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, WELL WE DO, AND ALL OF YOUR ASSES WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE IN THE END, ESPECIALLY THE ONES THAT ARE CONDONING THIS CRAP SUCH AS THE IDIOT IN THE WHITE HOUSE CALLED "TRUMP."

    SO THIS IS WHY BODY CAMERAS ARE "TOTALLY IGNORED." ALL OF THESE GUYS NEED TO BE FIRED, OR KEPT O-U-T OF "BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS", IF YOUR "FEAR" OF BODILY HARM IS THAT GREAT (CONCERNING "BLACKS"), THEN STAY THE HELL OUT THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS.... AND I BET "BLACKS COPS" ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HANDLE SO-CALLED WHITES IN THIS MANNER, BODY-SLAMMING 11 YEAR OLD BLACK BOYS & GIRLS, MEN, WOMEN, THE ELDERLY. YOU PEOPLE HAVE "LOST YOUR DAM MINDS." IT IS ACTUALLY "THE FEAR OF BEING OUT-NUMBERED BY BLACKS" IS WHY THIS GARBAGE IT LET TO CONTINUE, WE'RE NOT "STUPID, BY NO MEANS."

    BAD POLICING STARTS WITH BAD MANAGEMENT. MAKING A CRIMINAL YOUR ARMED GUARD WOULD BRING OTHER CRIMINALS INTO YOUR LIFE. The only way to convince a change in this patriachy is public open season on the Criminals in uniform? After 1 month of body bags, there will be serious changes in the Force? UNTIL THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS BECOME VICTIMS, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO JUSTIFY WHAT THEY KNOW IS WRONG. Dick Cheney was anti Gay UNTIL his daughter came out of the Closet.

    Rock, Paper, Scissor logic explanation. In Scandinavian where that game probably was invented it's Rock, Bag, Scissor.So the rock kick scissor, the scissor kick bag and the back kick rock. Makes more sense but in English it's akward to say rock, back, scissor so sometime that was changed. now you know.

    I must say that I adore John Oliver. But I don't think he did enough research on this video when it comes to just how dangerous humans can be. One strong well placed punch can kill people. Or even if it doesn't kill them, it can just knock them out, and then the person falls, and hits their head on the ground and they can die from the impact. This has been recorded happening, quite often actualy. It wasn't to long ago that the knockout game was really popular, and many people died from that game. As a martial artist, I have seen just how dangerous the human body is, and I can say without a doubt, that the fist is a weapon.

    For the record, the phrase "one bad apple spoils the bunch" doesn't mean "people are judging an entire group based on a single, particularly bad member," it means "this single, particularly bad member needs to be removed as quickly as possible lest its influence lead to a reduction in the group's overall quality."

    I've actually thought that a proper class on how to interact with the police would be a valuable part of High School curriculum. You could build it into the career skills course or something similar. The example used in this video is way too sad, I'm thinking more like: 1. How to behave in a vehicle during a vehicle stop (not making sudden movements, rummaging around in the back seat, passenger behaviour etc...) 2. How to respectfully ask relevant questions. For example: "May I ask why I'm being stopped today?" (Good) "WTF pig why u hassling me?" (Bad). 3. What to do if you disagree with an action the police officer took. Lessons would cover the court system or how to file a complaint with a police commission. So many people get into fights with the officer on scene, when all they had to do was be compliant, record all the details and then appeal later.

    More training is crucial! Some are INAQUATELY undereducated. I saw an old cop cursing out a group of minority women and their daughters as they participated in a walkathon for a children's hospital. Their crime? Some STEPPED OFF THE SIDEWALK to the street to avoid people who were in their way. The streets were blocked off for the walk a thon! Its not like they could have been hit by a car. The young woman cop that he was training was in silent shock at his racist words and attitude.

As for police they are grossly inept when it comes to firearm/taser training and should be held liable when a death results.

    It's easy to sit back and critique public servants. Most of the time, the bottom line is that law enforcement agencies are woefully understaffed and underfunded. Before you accuse police officers of not doing their jobs correctly, why don't we make sure we're providing them everything they need in order to do it successfully.

    The problems with police accountability is clearly systemic. It is the administration of these various law enforcement organizations that exonerate and justify the actions of these officers. The 'bad apple" hypothesis is completely false.

    Cops vs Muslims bad apples comparison seems analogous except we need and always will need police. We don't need an aggressive religious-governmental doctrine that demands conversion or death infused into our Judeo-Christian society based on separation of church and state, and acceptance of all religions. PS. Cops die at the hands of unarmed suspects not due to fists, but due to the gun that is up for grabs in every fight and wrestling match they encounter. Skinny British comedians probably know very little of crime, evil, and extreme violence.

    If even an unarmed woman who called 911 to report a sexual assault in progress can get shot and killed cops need better training & discipline. At least Justine Damond's killer is being held accountable for what he did, but Justine was a white woman and Noor is a cop of colour. Why haven't ALL the police who have shot: unarmed men lying on the ground, men willingly complying with police orders, sleeping or playing children, men talking on the phone, men with their backs turned or men answering their own goddamn front door been held accountable too? NONE of those situations required deadly force, and the only people who'd feel threatened by them are either racists or cowards and should never have been given badges in the first place. After so many unjustified, consequence-free deaths if I was living in America the very last thing I would want to do is call the police, and I'm a white female!

    Like always John Oliver does an amazing job covering this topic. However, something that I don't hear talked about enough is how the wrong people are getting hired to be cops. It's one of those jobs that 30 something-year-olds get into once they realize they're life is not going the way they expected, or recent high school grads will get into it because they have no idea what they want and getting into some police academy offers a direct path. The problem is that a lot of those people didn't become police officers due to a passion to protect and serve, which is unfortunate for those who are actually serious about this line of work. I think police academies and departments need to do a way better job at making sure they are only accepting people who really want to serve and understand what it truly means.

    Sometimes pepper spray, and stun guns just don't work. one night watched a man beat a woman senseless while gulping down pepper spray wit a side order of max voltage taser. he was coherent enough to hear the cop say "if you don't stop I will shoot" so don't me tell me he was on drugs. NO GUNS WERE FIRED BTW. Also, you are never free to go....and you forget the golden rule of where there power, there is corruption.

    That class on interacting with the police is teaching reliable ways to get handcuffed. I hope they also teach them how to get cuffed without throwing a fit. This is the order of events preceding most police shootings: Traffic stop Response to cop is seen as impolite Cop takes offense and decides to put his foot down "Step out of the car for me real quick" "What did I do wrong?" Cop decides to cuff person Person has a fight or flight moment At that point, it's jail or the morgue.

Castile had a gun, and they routinely smoked weed in the car with their kid in the back. It's on video. I wish none of them were shot... but these are bad examples. In the video with castile or whatever, he did reach near his gun, and he was shot by a no white guy.... he said don't reach and he kept moving.... if you got a gun and smell like weed... unfortunately... you shouldn't move at all.... only a moron would.... again... I wish none of them died.

    I support police and have wanted to be an officer since I was a kid, but I 100% agree that cops should be held accountable. A few bad apples spoil the barrel. There's a lot of good cops out there, but there's a lot of bad cops out there that are just bullies with badges. Hold cops as accountable for their actions as you would any citizen that would be arrested by an officer.
