when a hispanic cop shot a black boy on a motorbike in Miami years ago blacks rioted but they stopped from rioting into the Cuban areas (a retired Deputy Marshall I know was involved in that law enforcement effort-he said the Cuban neighborhoods had more firepower than Fort Knox)
so you are correct, it could get ugly-when a White Cop in Cincinnati shot a black 18 year old youth with 14 minor warrants, blacks rioted and when the cops backed off patrolling black areas we got 103 or so murders over the next 14 months-all black on black

Considering percentages of population per racial group...its a pretty blatant and disgusting set of numbers.

How's that hopey changey thing comin along, Obamaniacs? Are you still throwing back the Kool Aid or is that little world you've been living in starting to heal?
Generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.
This was the moment—this was the time—when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves and our highest ideals.
I think it sucks that this happened, but I think it is also dishonest to compare this to cases where people initially weren't even going to be tried with anything. If the cops said, you know "Hillbilly right to defend your asshole kids clause" came into play, only to step back from it after realizing how badly they screwed up that would be one thing but it isn't. People are going to jail for this and no one questions if they should go to jail or not.
This is the key difference. See, for whatever reason you guys have this fascination with trying to make people that don't agree with your POV to seem backwards racist or something. If you were going to say, give me a thread where a black guy shot a white kid because he thought the white kid was up to no good and there is a chance he could walk, then I would be pissed. It seriously would aggravate me. This Treyvon martin thing to me what is more concerning is the law. I really don't give a **** either way about Zimmerman.
You find me some black on white crime where the guy gets away with it and then talk. Otherwise, stop it.
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
