Smack talking

Don’t talk smack to a cop. They are like hornets. If they sense trouble, they’ll call more of them to come. And then they will all sting you.

I hate that trick question. “Do you know why I pulled you over?” I want to say “Why, don’t you know?” Or make up something silly like “Because I was playing mariachi music too loudly?”

That isn’t really a great plan.

Sure, I’m a white woman. I’m middle class. I don’t run the same risk of death by cop that a black men would. But worse can happen. There are worse things than death. And when stopped in a strange place with a strange person who has a gun – even if that person is legally entitled to that gun – it is best to not act suspiciously.

Sometimes I watch the show “Cops” just to learn what not to do.
