“If a cop tells you to put your hands in the air, don’t wave them like you just don’t care”

“Throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care” is a saying that became popular in the 1980s. What if the police tell you to put your hands in the air?

“When a cop tells you to ‘put your hands in the air’ the correct response is not ‘like you just don’t care?’...apparently” was posted on Twitter by Verifried Drunk on March 30, 2011. “When a cop tells you to put your hands in the air, wait for him to tell you to wave them like you just don’t care. Never assume” was posted on Twitter on March 1, 2012. “If a cop tells you to put your hands in the air, it’s always a bad idea to wave them around like you just don’t care” was posted on Twitter on April 11, 2018.

When police tell you to put your hands in the air, I don’t advise waving them like you just don’t care.

Protip: When a cop tells you to put your hands in the air, do not take the initiative and wave them around like you just don’t care.

FL tip: if a cop tells you to “Put your hands in the air” ask before assuming he wants you to also “Wave them like you just don’t care”
