Here’s some good advice from the venerable Chris Rock on http://www.ifilm.com/player/?ifilmId=2458063 How to NOT get your ass kicked by the police.
Yes, I understand that it’s a tragedy that an (assumed) innocent man was killed after he ran from police in the London Underground the day after other men physically similar to him tried to blow the place to hell. Yes, I understand that a man of said physical characteristics walking around in the summer heat wearing a heavy jacket does not automatically make him a terrorist, although I would remind the viewer of the aforementioned attempted bombings, the similar physical characteristics of the bombers, and the (in no way unexpected) heightened level of security following said acts or barbarism. I would also remind the reader that the (deceased) (assumably) innocent man did not stop when told to, and continued to act like the terrorist asshole he was assumed to be at the time of his demise.
No, I don’t feel sorry for him. I do feel sorry for the police who will no doubt have to take more chances with their own lives and give more opportunities to terrorist assholes because some (assumed) innocent civilian was too stupid to realize that his behavior was an invitation to “suicide by police”.
Or maybe that was his plan all along.
