... am I the only one seeing that most, if not all of the so-called "police shootings ..." are laced with "he/she was resisting, brandishing a knife, trying to escape, driving a car at us" and so on? I've been listening closely to all accounts of each case, and have been for the past decade or so ...

Almost every one has that element of total disregard for the fact that the police were trying to do their job, and something that should've been minor got turned into something major, and lives were ruined all the way around. I was raised to be respectful, and even more so for the police ... you couldn't pay me enough to do their dirty/deadly job of policing the rest of us. Show them your hands, yes sir & no sir, and everybody goes home. How hard is that?

In recent memory, only the "no-knock" warrant case and the "I thought it was my Taser" cases were ones that went the other way ...

In every other case, BLM has no leg to stand on ... the responsibility for the outcome seems to fall directly on the shoulders of the offender. Yet, the news blips over the responsibility part ...

I'm all for police departments using more common sense and less deadly force, as everyone can improve, but folks, where's the respect? Thank your local police force ...

You will go to jail or worse if they have to do their job!!! Most of them like the work and most couldn't deal with it if they didn't show up when you call!!!

All cops are predators by nature, the white cops hate blacks, and hunt them down like dogs.

I’m talking about trained, professional police officers who, time and time again, upon encountering a black man in the routine of their professional duties, are so overcome with fear they discharge their weapon and murder. The Police Hunting And Killing Of Black Men Stops Today

And no matter what an officer has done to a black person, that officer can always cover himself in the running narrative of heroism, risk, and sacrifice that is available to a uniformed police officer by virtue of simply reporting for duty. Cleveland police officer Michael Brelo was acquitted of all charges against him in the shooting deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, both black and unarmed. Thirteen Cleveland police officers fired 137 shots at them. Brelo, having reloaded at some point during the shooting, fired 49 of the 137 shots. He took his final 15 shots at them after all the other officers stopped firing (122 shots at that point) and, “fearing for his life,” he jumped onto the hood of the car and shot 15 times through the windshield. I'm a black ex-cop, and this is the real truth about race and policing

LeBron was excellent in last night’s win, but after the game, he turned the focus to Blake and the way Black people are treated by law enforcement. He discussed how Black people feel ‘hunted’ by law enforcement and he also shared his own stories as a youth running from the cops out of fear, even when he did nothing wrong. Reacting to Blake shooting, LeBron says Black people feel 'hunted'


I could go on and on. That is all the proof you need. The media is telling us white cops are out to kill blacks.

I don't have time to find it right now, but I was just hearing about a study that passed people how many police shootings there were broken down by racial disparity. Democrats thought there were over a thousand cases a year of white police officer shooting unarmed black man. Republicans thought there were 20 a year. And the correct answer is it average is between 10 and 20 a year.

The media drives the wedge between us all.

White cops are stone cold killer. The media has the proof.

Since 2015, police officers have fatally shot at least 135 unarmed Black men and women nationwide, an NPR investigation has found. NPR reviewed police, court and other records to examine the details of the cases. At least 75% of the officers were white. The latest one happened this month in Killeen, Texas, when Patrick Warren Sr., 52, was fatally shot by an officer responding to a mental health call.

So, correct me if I'm wrong ... in HDrider's 1st example, there was a high-speed chase; in the 2nd example, faulty bike requirements and weaving (bikes are moving vehicles, and subject to almost all car rules). Almost every example has an element of what the person was doing wrong when stopped (had to read carefully to find them, though). The outcomes were extreme, but weren't they entirely preventable ... perhaps with a bit of common sense?

Just pull over, let the officer tell you how stupid what you are doing was (which, unfortunately, is a lot of times in my case), thank him/her for telling me about it, and go home. Nobody dies, nobody loses their job or faces court ...

Pray for this man, and all of those that serve.

We are way past the time that praying would help. We have had non stop riots for hundreds of days, socialists are running the government, and we are printing money as fast as they can make the paper. This is not going to end well.

Even democrats are now saying that inflation word. It's undeniable.

They don't need paper anymore. But, it isn't ever past the time that praying is helpful, imho.

It is definitely past the time of wishful ignorance.

It will all be okay. There are more and more people that were just wishing what they suspected wasn't true that are recognizing the problem.

I am polyanna, after all.
