    There is no database that counts unarmed black men shot. The Federal Database shows use of force during arrest...period.

    You have stated that there's no difference in treatment between black and whites by police forces in other threads.
    If that's your view there's really nothing to discuss. That's something that is pretty common knowledge.

    Also...I didn't call you a name...I said you were being willfully ignorant in this situation.

    Dreads are pretty common as are tats.
    Not sure your age but social norms change.

    Telling me I'm being ignorant is in fact calling me ignorant.

    I never said there was no treatment difference between blacks and white by cops. I referred to MY town only, said exactly that, and specifically related it to drunk driving, which we were discussing and which is not the same as shooting unarmed black men.

    You said it was a common occurrence for cops to shoot unarmed black men, but now you're saying there is no database to prove that.

    So in other words, you can't back up your statement.

    Well, if there is truth to the OP, then the cases would have some similarity. The anti-Bundy crowd decided he was a POS because he was "stealing". I'm sure they will say the same thing about Michael Brown if this OP turns out to be true.

    No, even by the testimony in the press before camera of his accomplice he fought with the police who tried to detain him. I believe they did bump the door closed on the officer. The pictures I posted in another thread, one of him throwing gang sign.

    No...being willfully ignorant just means you are ignoring patterns or input that contradicts with your inner model of reality. Everybody does it on occasion, it's not calling you anything. I'm willfully ignorant when it comes to the Miami Dolphins and the fact they are going to suck every year.

    I never said there was no treatment difference between blacks and white by cops. I referred to MY town only, said exactly that, and specifically related it to drunk driving, which we were discussing and which is not the same as shooting unarmed black men.
    Ok...so we agree on that

    You said it was a common occurrence for cops to shoot unarmed black men, but now you're saying there is no database to prove that
    Common as in happens much more often than it should. It should happen 0 times. Would you say that SWOT teams being used for issuing of Warrants and breaking into the wrong house result in unneeded death is too common? I can name you like three instances of that happening in the past year. I think it's way too common...it should pretty much never happen.

    What number do you think is acceptable in unarmed black men shootings?


    So in other words, you can't back up your statement
    I can be it will never be sufficient for you to call it common. I'm not going to go through news stories for the past 6 months so that you can go through and find excuses for why the shooting should occur (as if that should ever happen unless someone's life is in danger) or state that's not enough for it to constitute a "common" occurrence.
