5. When cops kill a guy for merely holding a cigarette on the street,

one has to ask just what kind of power are they asking for when they want to be able to punish for a "taunt". What is a taunt, and what is the punishment for a taunt?

For some reason I just flashed on an old DU thread where a kid corrected a D.A.R.E. offier's incorrect information he was presenting to the class, and the kid's mom was arrested that day. Was correcting false information a "taunt"? Was pointing out a lie, a taunt?

Another aspect to consider is the lack of honesty of cops. Right now their favorite excuse to kill is, he was reaching for his belt" or "pulling a gun", and there's evidence cops plant guns on suspects they've killed. Just imagine if they can lie about what you've said and punish for it.

Do police cameras also have audio?

If something like this were to become law, would it be smartest to teach children to never say a word to a cop under any circumstances whatsoever, even in a court of law, for it could be considered justification for a cop to murder?
