I thought the little officer showed great restraint.
And, McDowell, also showed “restraint”; he could’ve hurt him, but he didn’t. Even saying at one point, “I’m not going to let you shoot me again”.

The officer showed a lot of unprofessionalism with that “restraint”. He had back up on the way, and he wasn’t a threat in the store. He should’ve just arrested him when he came out the store. That said, if McDowell stays in the car, it never goes there.

Little dude didn't need a supervisor. He's the boss.
That’s part of the problem.

Seems to me the problem was the big guy not doing what he was told.

Man thats one big guy. Pretty sure he was a Dlineman at Michigan State. A good one too. Good job by that officer who was giving up some serious height and weight.

That was just a sh!tty situation for all involved. Both sides showed restraint until the situation was escalated and ultimately, it doesn't look good for either party.

It was a simple roadside stop. Those should never get to the point it just did and its a breakdown by all involved, including the current culture (police culture, too) we are in.

Malik McDowell being told he was going to be shot by a white police officer, who at any time, could have justified shooting him with lethal intent...yeah, I am not sure many of you in the same situation wouldn't have tried to fight for your life. I'll agree in part with @Tetragrammaton Cane that one of the main issues is that an officer is the "boss" or has the mentality of one in that situation. How difficult was it to simply have a conversation with the man. It starts as a very confrontational situation and an officer expects people to remain cool and compliant with the constant worry or an officer escalating the situation. If you're Malik McDowell...a 6-foot-6 black man...why wouldn't you walk in the store? You know the store has cameras. Many other cops wouldn't have had their body cam or dash cam on - conveniently - in a situation like that.

idk guys...just a sh!tty situation for both guys that likely could have been handled by both, in a different manner.

Roadside stops...should be as simple as...here is your citation, if you have an issue, see you in court. No signature needed. Hand it to the guy and be gone. Would wager that curbs a lot of roadside police issues.

And then they sent in a chick cop as backup. :ibis-roflmao-sm3:
I really think her voice and McDowell seeing that it was a woman calmed him down … but that could’ve been ugly.

Below happened a week ago or so

You’re nuts.

That cop showed tremendous restraint.

McDowell didn’t show any restraint? What the fūck are you even going on about. He assaulted the cop and was lucky the cop didn’t think he was going for his gun.

Whenever I’ve been stopped by cops, and it happened several times when I was younger, I complied with their commands. That’s how easy it is. Problem solved.
