Not to state that many police actions aren’t needed, but there’s still a massive gap between their purpose and what they’re currently doing, as you can see in the video below. A young black teen was riding his bike along the sidewalk with his friend when he was stopped by a female police officer. She kept asking him for some identification and he declined to do so, as she wouldn’t give him a proper reason as to why she needed it.
That seems to be a very good question to ask in my opinion, giving the circumstances, but her answer was the same basic answer most stumped police officers have – she decided to arrest him. I won’t ruin the surprise as to whether or not he makes a getaway, but outside of that I feel there’s a serious question that needs an answer: why are the police arresting people on the spot when their actions are questioned?
