I guess the point here is that people are calling the police on black people for doing incredibly mundane things (I link a few examples in my original post) that would be impossible to predict if it will be construed as dangerous (napping, moving into an apartment, etc). In those situations, if you are concerned enough to consider police intervention, I see no reason why you wouldn’t consider talking to the person first.
