Maybe some legal experts need to chime in here, but where are the laws saying I need to do what police say, even on my own property, and if I don't I can be justifiably shot?
Perhaps American police need to be trained to deescalate situations instead of thinking they are staring in some western shootout movie 24/7.
“If you make a mistake, another mistake, there is a very severe possibility that you’re both going to get shot. Do you understand?” Sgt. Charles Langley yells before telling Shaver to “shut up.”“I’m not here to be tactical and diplomatic with you. You listen. You obey,” the officer says.
I believe that yes, if you play stupid games by dicking around and reaching into your pockets, and you should win an equally stupid prize. It seriously isn't that hard people, just do what the guy with a gun says and don't reach into a pocket like you have a fucking gun in a country where 90% of the population is armed. keep in mind that these NORMAL people deal with the absolute trash of the population every single day and have to see the worst of every person they meet. My grandfather, who worked in our local force for 40 years, had to carry out a 2 month old baby who's skull was caved in by it's druggie parents when they were partying, not giving two shits and high out of their minds on coke. they heard the baby's crying for food and thought it was some monster so the mother caved her own child's skill in by throwing it against a wall.that shit will change you, and that's just one of the situations he had to deal with in his 40 years, there were countless he didn't have the heart to talk about when I asked about it. So, don't be surprised when the cop who has been dealign with that kind of shit for 7 hours pulls the trigger for you reaching for your waistband, after they said to put your hands up, because the other 25 times out of 30 people who they did the same thing to over their service had a gun in their hands, and if they hesitated someone else would've also been in a body bag.
