I once had a cop tell me I was j-walking after crossing a street that was blocked off for pedestrians but restricting vehicle traffic. I asked him “what he had been smokin'” – then he told me to drop to my knees hands on my head – I I told him to go fuck himself – suddenly he ran over to me turned me on my back with the help of 3 other officers and proceeded to try to crush my ‘adam’s apple’ and TRIED TO KILL ME!! FOR WHAT? JAYWALKING?? FOR TELLING HIM TO GET FUCKED!! SO – i know what it is to be “attacked in a deadly fashion by Police’ and I didn’t fuckin’ like it.. !!
