It is awful about the recent deaths of men who evidently did not follow orders from police officers who were trying to do their job.

Not doing what one is asked to do by police officers can lead to a struggle and things can go wrong. Resisting is wrong and can lead to accidental deaths. Recently, two such deaths came as a result of a struggle with a police officer.

If a police officer instructs a person to do something, it should be done quickly, without argument.

If someone later feels the police officer was wrong, that issue should be taken up with an attorney or the officer in charge.
