On the one hand, this is how I deal with the police. I get pulled over often. I've never been shot before. I am polite, respectful and I know how to talk to people. Kind of like this person. But you don't see me getting online and acting a damn fool about it. You don't see me getting online and disparaging a whole movement that has pulled together to make actual social change just because I made it through one traffic stop. You don't see me forgetting Tamir Rice, Akai Gurley and the many others who have been killed while doing nothing wrong.
I mean, we've all been here before. Anyone who uses clips was once this cyclist. Sometimes I'm still this cyclist.
