I think you're completely wrong!!! There is a lot of things going on today that should not be going on in 2016!!! You hear people say, "well at least I started a conversation", but we need to keep the conversation going because this reality is very, very real! You say it's too soon because what has happened in Minnesota and Dallas, but this is not the first time!! It's been going on for way too long and people have a right to voice how they feel when it comes to their communities and how their police force handles certain situations! What happened to, "Protect and Serve?" It's never too soon to educate people, stop the violence, and make sure that our police officers are ready to "Protect and Serve" after training!! Some are not even close to be driving around in their squad cars pulling civilians over for a traffic stop!
That you think they included this to educate or lend their voice is ridiculous.. They did this for the ratings.. End of Story!!! Its the kind of thing Rachel or Quin in the show would do.. They do not really care. It is a TV show.
How is reenacting someone being indiscriminately shot by a cop educational..
If they really wanted to lend their voice as a TV show, they should have produced a scene that will really teach.. as you said..
1) how cops should react as against how they have been reacting..
2) How the justice system should be swift and decisive to discourage others who think they can do the same and get away with a paid leave.
3) How citizens should respond and how to stop the things they unwittingly do to further the hate
No.. they did not show any of this, instead they went for the juicy shock value.. yea.. they put it IN YOUR FACE again..
Its like a student sends in his math test with the sum 1 + 1 = 3. Which is wrong.
The teacher, in the bid to correct him, walks to the board.. calls out his name and writes, '1 + 1 = 3' for comic effect humiliating the student instead of correcting him..
I wish it had been better set up in the story. As it was, it was highly implausible Rachel was hiding in the bushes filming at the exact spot where the police pulled over the car. That made the storyline seem shoehorned in as a way of grabbing attention, without really making much impact. It would have been better if they had developed the characters and the situation. The 45 minutes of the show before that had been mainly about the (implausible) love lives of Quinn and Rachel.
I mean, Quinn was getting a marriage proposal from a billionaire after what seemed like 2 days.
