    Any possibility at all?
    No, no possibility at all because "acting like a thug" does not mean "wearing a hoodie while eating Skittles"

    First, ask yourself why a neighborhood would actually establish and maintain a neighborhood watch. Do you have one in your neighborhood? Consider what that actually means for a minute. And now go to a mirror and look yourself in the eye, and tell yourself out loud that
    if you were on neighborhood watch night patrol, a strange man in a hoodie wouldn't aroused the slightest bit of suspicion. If you can do that without cracking up, then the bliss pool is for you.
    you know it was raining on the night the kid was killed
    would it seem so unusual for someone to wear a hood during the rain
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    I remember doing police "ride alongs" where the officer would mention a particular car and say that guy probably has a warrant or that guy probably has drugs in the car.

    When they pulled the person over for one or multiple traffic violations, from what I witnessed they were right 100% of the time.

    When you patrol and arrest people every day you get a pretty good sense of things that are suspicious.

    Because TV shows never distort or sensationalize the facts

    I don't think that is what he was talking about.

    I think the attack is what he was talking about.

    As far as I know it isn't.


    So the only thing he did wrong was self identify as "a New Orleans Police Department employee".

    Doing something like that can make it look like he was speaking "for", when he wasn't.
    I feel like I am misunderstanding you, so correct me if I'm wrong: Are you saying that it isn't wrong to be of the opinion that if people act like thugs that their deaths are justified?

    If only that kid had just gone home.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    No.

    Its worse than that.

    He is under investigation for a shooting incident if I read correctly.

    The guy is a colossal moron for making a comment such as this while under investigation for an unrelated shooting incident.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
