This Zimmerman Trial Anti-Riot PSA Is Patronizing And Embarassing

This is an official video posted Tuesday and released by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in Florida.

1. “RAISE YOUR VOICE, NOT YOUR HANDS”

“…no cuss, no guns.”

Here’s the full transcript:

“Raise you voice and not your hands. We need to stand together as one, no cuss, no guns. Let’s give violence a rest, cause we could easily end up arrested. I know your patience will be tested, but law enforcement has your back. Let’s backed (?) up and choose not to act up, and deputies are with us, so no need to act up. Let it roll off your shoulders as water off your back. Don’t lack composure because of one instance, it could be over. So let’s make the choice to raise your voice and not, your hands.
I’m sheriff Scott Israel, and law enforcement does have your back.”

Ironically, on the official version of the video, nobody can raise their voice, because they disabled the comments.
