Do they train police in the art of de-escalation? That is a serious question. It is all about the initial approach. If that goes wrong that is when things can go left. In this video, you will see how things went left only for the police to be proven wrong once again. Police in Tiburon, California demanded a Black-owned clothing store owner prove that he owned his establishment, YEMA, while he was putting out inventory at 1 a.m on Sunday.
Remember police are supposed to be public servants and if you are truly serving the public, you have to be aware and cognizant of the times and anyone you encounter, for that matter. Ask yourself simple questions like, “Was crime reported,? Did an alarm go off,? etc.
Peep the clip from the perspective of the store owner.
