    Why do some cops don't study laws to the adequate level?

    http://www.constitution.org/uslaw/defunlaw.htm

    “Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary.”

    Cursing Out Police Is Perfectly Legal, But Cops Routinely Arrest People for It

    "Being rude is not illegal, even if some of us sometimes wish it were. Being rude to cops, including cursing them out may be ill-advised, but it is protected speech.Yet that doesn’t mean you won’t end up in bracelets anyway.
    As the Marshall Project reports, many citizens are illegally arrested for cursing at cop, when in fact, their speech is protected. A police officer from the McKinney, TX police department was captured on the now infamous pool party video throwing a 15-year-old girl to the ground after he accused her of mouthing off. He was later fired for his actions."

    Some cops seem to think that they can make the arrests even when the arrests are illegal & that they are immune from profanity. Profanity is legal even against cops; they get it when they deserve it. Also, there is no obligation not to resist an illegal arrest. That's how it is in North America. A North American residing in North America is not obligated to follow some other country's law even if he or she violates a law against someone there like a profanity to an Asian cop through phone.

    Also, apparently, the police is not afraid to conceal their wrongdoing.

    Police routinely withhold body camera videos after shootings

    "But in Burlington and elsewhere around the country, police and other officials are routinely blocking the release of body camera videos while giving officers accused of wrongdoing special access to the footage."

    There should be like an organization established so that people are more informed about their rights (like shooting a police officer to death when making an illegal arrest) for the incompetency of the police officers with their level of law knowledge. They seem to sleep through their "basics" classes instead of getting an A+.

    Why do some posters don't write English properly?

    Grammatically? Perfect enough. Not to mention being concise.

    "Why do some cops don't study laws to the adequate level?"

    Subject. "some cops". Verb. "don't study". Object. "laws". Description. "to the adequate level". Written in question. "Why do". What grammatical law is this violating?

    They may have been busy learning to read and write English correctly. Have you ever considered doing that?

    Whew, the question properly phrases would be, "Why don't some cops study laws to an adequate level?" What the hell does "why do some cops don't..."mean?

    Elementary school stuff.

    Your sentence is just shorter. Mine made sense.

    "Why don't some cops study laws to an adequate level?" This is a suggestion to the cops.

    "Why do some cops don't study laws to an adequate level?" This is an evaluation of the cops.

    Different nuances in the sentences. Although, I am not sure, it is more correct to say "Why do some cops not study laws to an adequate level?"

    I give up. Why do you don't write properly?

    If you're a foreigner, I'll cut you slack, but stop being obtuse.
