Well, here are some tips that may just save your life. If, and only if, the officer just doesn’t feel like shooting you. 1. Be White. Really hard for officers to shoot White people. They make creative and creepy criminals but terrible targets.
2. Be a White man.
3. Be a White man with a gun
4. Be a White man with a gun and an attitude

All of these moves can (and will) be made threatening which will result in the officer protecting him or herself from your movement (or lack of movement) and get you killed

You are much less likely to kill yourself than a police officer. Yes, this seems crazy, but at this point, it might throw the officer off and allow you to leave with the flesh wound of your choice.
