42. 'compliant' attitude? They are our employees. If eg, you are a minority in NY and you are

frequently harassed simply because you ARE a minority (have you read the details on the scandalous 'stop and frisk' program?) yes, you BETTER be 'compliant' even though you have done nothing wrong. Because if you are not, you will be hauled away and false charges will be filed against you, and you may be beaten up in the process.

Mothers warn their young, African American sons to say nothing when approached by a cop. Not to even deny anything, no matter how wrong the accusation may be. They are also subject to having drugs planted on them according to the investigations conducted by private citizens and finally given some attention by the authorities.

Hundreds of thousands of 'stops' of minorities every year with no 'probable cause' has been sanctioned by the NYPD for years.

So yes, I guess you do what anyone living in a state where you have no rights, where to stand up for your rights can you get you beaten or falsely charged with a crime, the best thing to do is be 'compliant' and hope that this will save you from police brutality and/or false arrest.

How sad that a large section of the population has had to live that way for so long.
