Well, no charges. I figured that's how it would go.

TheKdd 12-04-2014 03:29 PM

Ok I am just sick. Seriously sick. All of this is just... I have no words at this moment. I'm sure I will though.

I think it's completely overblown. White people get accidently killed by police too. It's not a racist thing, it's isolated bad police work. Police have to make snap decisions constantly. That means tens of thousand decisions a day. Of course sometimes there's going to be mistakes. It's not an epidemic. That's a fact.

I disagree.

Do you how many arrests per year there are in the US? Almost 14 MILLION. A handful of people got killed accidentally and that's tragic but it's a minuscule amount. 99.99999999% of the time the person doesn't get killed. That's just the truth.

Yes however, there is a huge imbalance in the arrests, not just the killings, when it comes to African Americans vs. whites. You can't say that 12% of the population does more crime, or worse crime than the rest of the population.

This is a problem that this country has had for a long, long time. It's not about Michael Brown or Eric Garner, it's bigger than that. Hell it's not even a "death" problem. It's an oppressive problem. It's a problem with how Americans still think of blacks in general, and most definitely a problem when it comes to those in power thinking those same things as many in the general public.

More blacks do commit the crimes that get them arrested because most crimes are among the poor and more black people are poor. Now if you say that there's something wrong with both blacks and whites that would make so many poor than I'd agree whith you. That's a social problem that needs fixed. But people calling cops racist because of a few deaths is misguided. And, by the way, white people get accidentally killed by cops every now and then, too. One just got killed about a week ago when he pulled up his pants and they thought he had a gun.
