Myth #5. “Innocent people don’t ‘lawyer up’ when being questioned by the police…”
This myth is used in virtually every TV show or movie that involves a police investigation. The vast majority of the time, the storyline more than suggests that people who “lawyer up” are guilty of something. Rarely are the police shown to be wrong about the guilt of a “suspect” and people who “lawyer up” are never motivated by their desire to preserve their rights, freedom and innocence. They’re frequently shown trying to protect their guilt. This narrative motivates real life people into voluntarily giving up their constitutionally protected rights when confronted by police because they believe their innocence is enough to clear them. As a result, people think asking for a lawyer shows they are guilty even though most defense attorney’s will advise you remain silent until you get legal representation
Know this: the police normally don’t want to talk to you unless they believe 1 of 2 things about you:
• you are guilty of a crime
• you know who is guilty of a crime
Even people who have committed crimes need representation when speaking with police, especially in the case of people of color. Having a lawyer present reduces the chances of being manipulated into confessing to crimes you didn’t commit or being overcharged, which happens often enough. Therefore, it is always in the public’s best interest to remain silent when being investigated by police or when under arrest and to “lawyer up” before answering any questions or making any statements.
Myth #4. “The police are here to protect and serve the public…”
Actually courts have consistently ruled that the police have ZERO obligation to protect you. Warren v. District of Columbia and DeShaney v. Winnebago County Department of Social Services are cases with rulings against citizens who sought damages when the police failed to protect them. In the case of Warren v. D.C., the plaintiffs suffered 14 hours of sexual torture because of the police departments incompetence, however D.C.’s highest court ruled it a: “fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen."
In the case of DeShaney v. Winnebago County Department of Social Services a boy who was beaten and permanently injured by his own father lost his case when the court ruled that only when in custody is the state obligated to protect someone:
"The affirmative duty to protect arises not from the State's knowledge of the individual's predicament or from its expressions of intent to help him, but from the limitation which it has imposed on his freedom to act on his own behalf."
Myth #3. “Not all cops are bad…”
On face value, the idea that not all cops are bad seems reasonable; after all it is unrealistic to paint individuals with a single broad stroke. However this perspective misses the fact that law enforcement organizations as a whole have to be “bad” in the sense that the 1% who created them has always used them to quell mass social movements for positive change. For example, in the labor movements of the 19th and early 20th centuries and the movement for civil rights in the mid-20th century the police acted as violent enforcers for the bosses and the white status quo, respectively. The goal of the police is to protect, by any means necessary, the ruling elite and their interests at the expense of the 99% and individual acts of good deeds do not negate the fundamentally “bad” reason why law enforcement exists in the first place.
Myth #2. “The police target high crime areas, not ‘black’ areas…”
In the book The Crime Numbers Game: Management by Manipulation the authors reveal that New York City police falsify crime stats by manipulating its crime data system, CompStat, to bloat crime numbers in communities of color. (In fact, NYC was successfully sued for $75 million for the practice.) The book reveals that high ranking police officials use bully and humiliation tactics to pressure precinct commanders to “keep numbers [arrests, summons and stops] up”, numbers that are presumably fed into the system to prove “black on black crime” is up and militarized over-policing is a necessary and logical response.
Compstat was developed for use by New York City police, but quickly spread nationwide and is now in use (along with the bully tactics mentioned above) in all major cities in America. In short, “high crime areas” should be seen as racist code talk to hide the intent of preventing genuine progress in black and other oppressed communities.
CAPB's Top 5 Myths About Police....Busted!
Because the police have been successful in their public relations tactics over the decades, the public has been generally fed a steady diet of misinformation about policing in America. Through this sustained effort, many myths about policing exist, affecting what people think and how they interact with law enforcement. In order to set the record straight, these are the CAPB’s Top 5 Myths About Police…Busted!
1. “The police are not racist....”
The true definition of racism has been distorted so as to hide its true meaning and intent. When racism was created as a social construct, it came about as a desire of white men to control and dominate the darker people of the world. Putting racism in that proper context reveals a clear pattern of systematic domination of people of color (poc), black people in particular, throughout American history.
The police have played a central role in maintaining this system of racial domination; as slave catchers and enforcers of overtly racist laws in the post-slavery era to the so called “War On Drugs” and “Stop And Frisk” programs of today. Between early 1820’s and the mid 1950’s hundreds of times “white mobs”, often times angry at or jealous of black progress, attacked and killed black individuals and burned towns to the ground and in most cases the police either knew beforehand of the plans and did nothing to stop them or played a part in the attacks themselves.
In identifying policing as racist in America, it does not necessarily mean the individual officer has to “hate” blacks or other poc, though that is the case often enough. Policing only needs to carry out its historical function of maintaining white rule over black life in order for it to be racist.

Are police officers racist?
I think the real question should be who isn't a racist. The whole world is racist.
yes most of the time
I think the less likely statistics have arrived because officers have learned that if they shoot blacks they will get in trouble so now they just, don’t
I respect your statistics on the other hand is statistics really what's at issue here? If I wanted that put a realistic picture in my head of the problem having to do with the relationship between guns and blacks I would listen to a Spice 1 album I wouldn't watch prageru! I don't mean to be racist and I'm not trying to be artificially racist but spice 1 says "die and multiply". And he was on point. And sadly I think that there's something in the character hopefully fading since the 90s but intensifying in some areas where that attitude doesn't change
I really like these videos but can you put links to your sources in the description from now on?
No not all cops are racist
