What I think much of the American right forgets is that this police brutality issue isn't just isolated freak accidents, it's been this way for decades and the recent killings have just been the match on the powder keg that already existed. This problem is systemic and historical.

I find it more than a little disturbing that many in this forum claim police officers have the right to blast anybody the second they feel threatened, even if that person is unarmed and not attacking him. Disturbing, but not surprising. The following scene from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in the 90s has become even more relevant:

Yeah, the left has been supporting black criminals for a long time.

The thread is about black people in America being terrified of being blasted by cops for no reason. It's been that way for a long time and you couldn't care less. We're not talking about criminals. Stay on topic or start your own thread.

It just goes to show this wasn't some freak, isolated incident. This was a topical joke 30 years ago. It's been happening for a very long time. You and your ilk intentionally deny this.

Your laziness and inability to counter any of my points is noted.

Have they considered not attacking cops? That might reduce their mortality risk.

The thread is about black people who are shot unarmed and not attacking cops. You lie because you have an agenda.

Have you started a thread about jackalopes?

You can't address the actual topic of the thread so you attempt to childishly distract. Hard pass. Innocent black people in America shouldn't have to be terrified of interacting with cops.

Bingo! :thumbs:

Ditto for police malfeasance.

In my city, for decades it was a felony to film the police! Do you believe it? A felony! Until recently. Now, all-of-a-sudden there's been a plethora of police excessive force incidents captured on film. Gee, wonder why?
