    According to police Bennett was handcuffed because the officers had found his behavior on the scene "suspicious".

    Or, as I told you a few times by now, when police believe you might be involved in a criminal act they're going to put you in cuffs until they ascertain the truth. No one on scene has suggested resistance played any role in the Bennett case. The only person doing that is you.

      • Hey, chrys...

        Why do people pay for special intentions for a particular Mass?
        Psalm 42:1-2 (KJV)

        1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

        2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
        .

          No, but then I don't tend to think a thing is so without a particular reason.

            so you believe the police has no reason to do what they did?

              I can believe that Bennett did not resist detainment without believing the police had no reason (good or poor) to detain him.

              They aren't dependent answers, your best effort notwithstanding.

                why would you believe bennett when he was the first to play the race card?

                  On the point? Because his narrative on that point is uncontested, but I don't have to believe him. What I have to do is understand the police have not accused him of any misconduct in the incident. Your suggestion was predicated on his being handcuffed, which I noted was a mistake on your part.

                  when he was the first to play the race card?
                  Non sequitur. It doesn't follow that his belief that race influenced the sequence of events has any bearing on the question of whether or not anyone who was in a position to know has suggested Bennett resisted the detainment. They haven't.

                    it is contested, his claim that he was singled out because of race -
                    how do you prove that if he was not the only black around?
                    the police have denied this
                    -but-
                    you believe bennett and not the police -
                    why?

                      Surprise, surprise.

                      Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

                        That's not what we were talking about so that's not the point I noted was uncontested.

                        how do you prove that if he was not the only black around?
                        Why do I need to?

                              It wasn't the point WE were talking about when you dragged a quote on what we were into it. And then you made the same assertions about believing that I'd already corrected.

                              Peculiar.

                              -and-
                              it is contested
                              I should imagine it would be.

                              bennett turned it into a racial thing
                              That's your assumption. Rather, it was in part about race, or he got that part wrong. Neither you nor I know the truth on that point, which is why I've noted the assertions without "believing" them.

                              -and-
                              bennett has an agenda
                              Everyone involved has an agenda.

                                it is a fact that bennett turned it into a racial thing -
                                he is now working with 'black lives matter' which is responsible for many police being shot
