Bagley cartoon: Cop Shooting and Race | The Salt Lake Tribune

Bottom line: if you are white, you can literally walk around with an assault rifle, openly committing acts of treason against the government, and STILL not be shot by police

If you are a person of color, you fear for you life every time you see a police officer, for VERY good reason.

Three things, 1) it isn't a picture, it's a political cartoon, 2) the person represented by the character with the cowboy hat saying "You'll never take us alive!!!" was allowed to have his statement verified - he was shot and killed by federal officers when he reached for his gun at a road block, and 3) the guy represented by the cartoon driver of the car with the illegal tail light out, appears to have been shot for the same reason as the cowboy in the other pane of the cartoon - meaning, that whites are privileged to be shot by police just like blacks are, and usually for the same reasons. What the cartoon doesn't show is what you say it shows, when the facts and truth of each of the real life incidents portrayed in the cartoon are taken into consideration.

I've seen your posts for a time now.

This is in no way intended to be offensive.

I wonder about your sobriety. Seriously.

another stupid OP and thread. what do you call committing acts of treason? wearing a TRUMP or NRA t-shirt

BTW do you have even the remotest clue what an "assault rifle" is

because if you are walking around with one you best have the tax stamp and the papers

Wow. I feel sorry for poor black cops. They must come to work every day and just run around in circles thinking "Oh lordy lord! Cracka cops all around me!!!!"
