I was having lunch with a friend yesterday and we were discussing the recent shooting of a civilian by a cop. I said, “I can guarantee you I will never get shot by a cop.” He said, “No you can’t.” Well, of course I could run into the one in five million cops who just might shoot me for no reason, but for the most part, there is absolutely no reason to believe that ANYONE ever has to get shot by a cop. Follow these guidelines and you will reduce the risk of being shot by a cop to the point that they are statistically insignificant:

1. Don’t be in a gang.

2. Don’t rob convenience stores.

3. Don’t do or sell drugs.

4. Don’t loiter on street corners or walk down the middle of the street.

5. Don’t carouse at night.

6. If you are stopped by a police officer, comply with his or her orders. If you don’t like what they are doing, record the incident and hire an attorney.

7. Do not, under any circumstances, attack the officer, hit the officer, or try to take the officer’s gun away from the officer.

Number 6 is unrealistic for people who cannot afford a descent attorney.

Black car?

Quoting momofthree0429:

Don't be black and do wrong!  And don't call attention to yourself.  My husband's boss is a black man that understands.  He refuses to drive what would be considered a "black car".  He won't tint his windows, and he won't "bump" his music.  It may not be fair, but its the world we live in.  If black people would stop calling attention to themselves, eventually white people would realize that they are just like everyone else, and stop profiling.  

Quoting 702girly:

You forgot number 8.

8. Don't be black.
