You don't have to watch the Walter Wallace Jr video.
the police are not crisis counselors. they are not mediators. they are not social workers. and they have said, every time something like this happens — which, as we know, is often — that they have no obligation to anything but their own safety.
the police are a hammer and treat every problem as a nail. and that problem is always an actual human being.
there are basically no scenarios when summoning the police to a Black neighborhood improves the situation on the ground.

they have no functional fetters on whether and how they can use force against members of the public.

pls don't call the cops.
