SDCC 2013: White People Fake Arrest for Fun!

Out of all of the things I saw at San Diego Comic-Con, this one stood out the most. Along the Gaslamp District, the San Diego Police Department was attempting some public relations. But, that was by showing off various techniques to subdue individuals, faking arrest and showing off their tasers.

At first I thought nothing about it, but it was pointed out to me to look at the crowd around these demonstrations, it was all rather pale when it came to skin color. It wasn’t just me, when it came to this one, later in the evening when I saw the same cops doing the same things, another passerby also made the same comment to his friend.

The fact that no one with skin color darker than white found this amusing enough to stop says everything.
