Your lack of knowledge about firearms might show that a fear of lawful firearms owners rules your thinking. That is unfortunate, because not all of us live within five blocks of a police station that is just chomping at the bit to answer a call for assistance when a home invader is trying to kill you, or an armed robber has cornered you. My response to danger to myself and my family is the ability to defend us immediately, not 15 minutes later when the police arrive to take pictures of my corpse & crime scene. You are free to do it your way and I wish you no harm, but I dare you to put a "No Firearms Here" sign on your front lawn...how long do you think it will be before the knife-wielding thug comes thru your front door with bad intentions? Are you going to outlaw knives next?
Police should consider the same fact that they could go to jail too, police are not above the law. Police are there to enforce laws when it comes to murder police officers need to be held to the same standards and not feel that they are above the law.

The police officer has the right to do what he’s doing rather it is his duty. But in the case of a civilian yelling at you, if he gets closer and indulges himself in a fight with you, his actions are not justified. In the case of Ferguson, the scenario is a bit different. Michael was not walking on the sidewalk rather he and his friend Johnson were walking in the middle of the street. Moreover, Michael was apparently not an innocent civilian, he had just committed a robbery.
What is “stop snitching?” According to Woldoff & Weiss (2010), the movement of ‘stop-snitching campaign’ started in the early 1990s which resulted in ‘stop-snitching’ culture. The ‘stop-snitching phenomenal is also referred to the ‘code of silence,’ which demonstrated in street culture especially among street criminals. The act of snitching has conventionally been connected with police informants — but since the early 1990s it has moved into a cultural phenomenon implanted within the code of the street. Regardless of the utilization of the term, some academics have connected attitudes in Black populations toward collaborating with law enforcement in the past to misuse African American informants to control slaves and locate civic right leaders.
The police arrested Rubin Carter and John Artis because they fit the description given by Alfred Bello after the Lafayette Bar shooting. Their first right that was violated was “Detention or imprisonment” section 9 “Everyone has the right not to be arbitrarily detained or imprisoned.” John Artis and Rubin Carter were arrested for being “2 black men in a white car” as said by the policeman who detained them. The second right that was violated was “Arrest or detention” section 10 (a) “Everyone has the right on arrest or detention; (a) to be informed promptly of the reasons therefor;” Carter and Artis were not informed promptly of the reason of their detention, in fact, when they were detained both men were taken to the hospital for the surviving

If you quickly put your hand in your pocket and you don’t do as told, police may think you have a dangerous item in your pocket, so you end up wounded or tazered. Police officers are not racist; they are doing their job.. The case of Abner Louima is a case when police were racist. Louima was a security guard at a nightclub when a fight broke out. He intervened and broke the fight up although when police arrived, he was arrested not the brawlers.

The fleeing felon rule is when the police are chasing a felony suspect and he or she is fleeing from the scene. The officers are allowed to use force to stop the fleeing suspect, that includes the use of deadly force. However, deadly force can only be used if the officer has probable cause to believe that suspect would be a threat to the community. Force can be used by the victim, bystanders, and officers, but, deadly force can only be used by the officers.
