    Why is the word COMPLY so hard to understand? Why do people think running from, wrestling with and/or pointing something at police when they detain you is a good idea? It's a simple thing that people seem to try to not do. Then blame cops when it all goes bad. It absolutely amazes me at how stupid (OK, being drunk/high doesn't help) people can be!

    Are you sincerely looking for a response? What if an antifa type came up to you and told you to kneel? Would you comply? While it's difficult for us to truly wrap our minds around the thought that cops may do us harm once we're in compliance, and the system won't help us if they do, if we survive, try to imagine what blind obedience in other circumstances would mean to you, and then try to imagine how you'd react if you weren't so sure about a cop's intent or the intent of the government that arms him.

    There goes racist CNN again. LOL. Maybe they should’ve tried talking to the “peaceful protestors” instead of blocking the skateboard with his camera. Next time use something less valuable... like the reporters head.

    You can't get here from there!
    Antifa has no authority to demand you do anything.

    Apples to commies.

    And police have limited authority to demand you do anything. The question was "Why is the word COMPLY so hard to understand?". I was providing an answer.

    Dude,

    I believe their "limited authority" far exceeds that of a domestic terrorist group. I'm sure you know this.

    Nice try at being a contrarian. You need more work on your arguement.

    I am curious. Some times you make a ton of sense and at others, you just appear to want to go against the grain, just to be an a'hole over the obvious.

    Why? What's in it for you that America fails?

    With Antifa there is no question that they are asking you to kneel with your best interests nowhere near at hand. Look at the numbers, and you literally can't say that about the police.

    Almost twice as many white people shot by police last year than black.
    Twice as many unarmed white people shot by police last year than black.
    Police are not hunting down black people.
    George Floyd was not lynched.
    STOP PUSHING THE NARRATIVE OF HATE.

    Huh? Comparing a cop's request/demand and an antifa member's is not even close. One is a policeman and it's his JOB to do this. Antifa is just a spoiled punk attacking in groups. And I'm unable to kneel, anyway. You should know who you're talking about.

    If the police are attempting to arrest a person and that person resists the police should just let that person go.

    Basically it seems that's what they're demanding and in more and more places ... getting.
