    You are just being asked not to make sudden moves for your own and cops' safety.  Like on a safari.

    •  Potential threat then. (0+ / 0-)

      We are all potential threats to the police until proven otherwise momentarily.

      Somehow, that's not acceptable either.

      I am no threat to police officers.

      I should never have to fear a cop shooting me, but I do.

      •  Perhaps if you were a cop (0+ / 0-)

        on the beat, never knowing who or what you are going to encounter in a vehicle you just pulled over, you would feel differently.

        •  Stop it. (0+ / 0-)

          That's just very poor reasoning.

          •  That is hardly a response (0+ / 0-)

            I know that if I were a cop I would want, for everyone's safety, that a person who I am stopping not make any sudden moves.  Those moves can be misinterepreted to everyones detriment.  Believe it or not, cops don't go out looking to kill people.  Vast majority of cops would prefer to never unholster their guns.  And behavior that would let them keep their guns holstered is to be encouraged.
