Respect my authority

Mr. Wil Wheaton posted this article on twitter with a picture of Eric Cartman from South Park.

I have to disagree with Mr. Wheaton and his follows assessment of the article. i found it to be well written, insightful, and informative; and i agree with the author. i don’t find his base assumption, that most law enforcement officers go out looking to shoot people, to be incorrect. he acknowledged the bad apples, present in any organization, and his experience as IA lend credibility to this statements.
but once again i find the center issue of a discussion can be education. learn about and understand your rights. do not just ‘bow down’ to the law but be educated so you can intelligently navigate the situation.
