How Not to Get Shot by a Cop

Sad but true, another black man has been shot in the street, this time by a member of the Charlotte, North Carolina police force who happened to be black as well. The dead man was allegedly holding a gun and pointing it at the cop, refusing to put it down after several requests. His family says he was holding a book, not a gun, yet no book was found in the aftermath of the shooting.

I do not mean to make light of such a serious subject, merely to pass along some learned wisdom. I have never been shot by a cop and I think it's because I have always followed these two rules:
1. Never point a gun at a cop.
2. Do not buy books shaped like guns.
