I would like to offer a life-saving safety tip, particularly to you young people, during these challenging times.
You read the news, you know that danger is out there, and you know that none of us is immune. But there are things you can do to keep yourself safe. If I could offer you one important tip, taken directly from today’s headlines, it would be this:
Yield to police authority.
If you get pulled over, comply. If you get arrested, submit. Never get into fistfights with police officers, don’t try to grab their guns, and don’t resist arrest.
A substantial majority of Americans believe that it’s a good thing that police have the authority to use deadly force when they carry out their duties. Don’t be stupid. Whatever problems may come from complying with the officers’ instructions, they are probably less onerous than being shot and killed as another poster child for dysfunction.
What’s that? Masks? I don’t care about those. You’re not at risk from the Wuhan coronavirus anyway if you’re under 30.
