...I can't really move at all without *someone* construing it as a "menacing encroachment."
I’m a cop. If you don’t want to get hurt, don’t challenge me.
"Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you."
The converse is, I suppose, that if a cop wants to shoot me, taze me, pepper-spray me, baton-strike me, or throw me to the ground, all he has to do is say that I didn't do what he told me?
Sounds risky. I will (continue to) pass. America, y'all go ahead and continue to meekly obey the constabulary, lest ye be mercilessly pummeled for inadequate subservience.
