It's not up to you...
Of course it is as it is, jon, it's my thread, you are just a guest in it.
They are however trained to diffuse a situation wherever possible, and this is something they are generally good at.
I have never understood this as you Europeans have taught me something new.
Where I come from the police do just the opposite and are trained to insult, provoke, intimidate, threaten and harass you to create a State manufactured crime.
A broken taillight can turn into a felonious resisting and obstructing assault crime very quickly if you don't let them intimidate you.
That is why I started this thread is to understand about the Polish police tactics that are to de-escalate instead of using their authority to bully you into a crime.
And yes, they are trained to do this.
And they know even if you beat the charge in court it costs you at least $5,000 for a good attorney so you still lose.
Such different tactics I must say which explains why so many people end up dead like Floyd did over a f-ing fake $20 bill.
I truly do appreciate the literate posts here explaining the Polish police tactics in making arrests.
