    So naturally, racist Governors want to eliminate all education about America’s racist history and current events.

    All too freakin’ common. Yes, we hear about the outrageous ones, not the routine… but when HAVE you heard about a white driver dying from a traffic stop? I take that back. I need to say When HAVE you heard about a white driver being killed by police  during a traffic stop?

    You have the right not to be killed

    Murder is a crime

    Unless it was done

    By a policeman

    The police need to do much better.

    Stop with the lies! More white people are killed by police than people of color. Lots of sites, even liberal ones, acknowledge that fact.

    Well once again the loons jump to conclusions with only a small portion of the facts. Are they pushing to keep blacks from becoming police officers given the makeup of those charged in this case? Can anyone really draw the conclusion that all police act in the same manner as the 5 charged?

    And where’s the outrage over the EMTs and firemen?

    Not all police are bad.

    Not all priests are bad.

    Not all Republicans are bad.

    On the one hand it is gratifying to see the cops who did this being held responsible. On the other has anyone else noted that all the cops facing trial are black? Do you believe that in the same circumstance if the cops were all white that they would be facing charges today?

    This is such a misrepresentation of facts. The media highlights the worst cases in which blacks are killed, but every day, untold numbers of blacks are stopped, and they aren’t mistreated. This kind of cartoon paints all cops with a broad brush, and it’s an insult to the many good cops out there.

    White privilege is getting pulled over by the cops and not worrying if the next few moments are your last.

    Looking solely at police shootings of only white/black. whites make up 66% ot total. Based on percentage of population, blacks are 138% more likely to be shot by police than whites. percentages derived from www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/investigations/police-shootings-database/

    So it’s agreed way too many folks are being killed?

    No reasonable person would not suspect this was a targeted hit, and not a random act of Police Brutality.

    I think I’ve been pulled over three times in my 60+ years of driving, once for doing 35 in a 25 zone, once (laffably) for doing a radar-measured 88 in a 55 zone (in a car that couldn’t do 60 if you added a JATO pack), and once, at night driving thru a small town, for a defective taillight. All 3 times, I promptly pulled over, rolled down the window, and stuck my white face and both white hands out where they could all be clearly seen. I think the part about the cops wanting to see both hands makes sense, but it’s just pathetic that it’s a bonus if they’re white.

    Scary how some people are not concerned when police decide to play judge, jury, and executioner… particularly when they apply the death penalty to crimes that would not incur the death penalty in court…

    While I’m relieved there were no racist white cops involved I am mortified that this vicious beating even took place! Absolutely mortified,and all the world should be as well……

    “There’s a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.” —Cmdr. William Adama, TV series Battlestar Galactica
