If you don't resist arrest, your chance of dying during a police encounter is basically zero. The chance of anything good happening from resisting arrest is also zero. The people who refuse to say this, or get mad at you for saying it, dont really care about preserving human life
I actually don't want people to die, which is why I say this. A lot of people on this site couldn't give less of a shit about human life, which is why they'll make their stupid, cheap dunks on the point above, even though they know it's 100 percent totally true.
