Citizen passivity is now demanded up front by the bestial Rulers. I recall Bush, Jr. complaining about activists (active citizens). That was a forewarning.
Police behavior is <½ dictated by law and >½ by the political climate. As the American Plutocracy takes off their velvet gloves, the police iron hand is even easier to see and feel. That starts with us and heads over to YT’s place. Expect little compassion from the rulers’ heartless glare.
Best way to avoid resisting arrest is to secure some economic power. How I see it.
