Now, you can simply state your bias that you will support this police officer no matter what, while you vote to defund police departments and their retirement, or perhaps, you could come to understand a different way of thinking.

    What do you think?
    There is no standard for how many shots are too many at ANY range.

    The standard is as many as needed until the threat is stopped.

    I didn't realize that was pertinent information anyway. From my understanding the tape was totally faked for the sole purpose of denigrating Brown's character and that Wilson only shot Brown because he hated black people. I mean, what else do we need to know about this incident?

    And youve already shown your bias here by making this a partisan issue. Although im not shocked democrats are cheerleading for criminals
    Well in any incident involving minorities, republicans seem to make a special effort to condemn the minority even before all facts are stated. Then turn around and ask why we always think you are racist.

    No, you are wrong. Republican often take the side of cops. Thats how we are wired i guess. Respect the law, dont commit crimes and all that. Democrats not so much.

    Not republicans fault that black people are committing crimes and they are getting the business end of justice

    So out of all the police cases, you can't recall any time where police brutality wasn't justified against people of color?

    I can think of many instances where police brutality was justified. I can also name a few where it was not. Based on what has been reported thus far, per tennessee v garner, this was a good shoot

    You know, we go through this all the time.

    One poster says one thing, gets challenged for a link, and lo and behold we are told the links are too numerous to even bother, that it's "old news", "settled" or whatever.

    It usually means there is no such verification, although I would love to be proven wrong on this one, simply for a change of diet after ten years.

    As to how this or that? There are only two witnesses. One is the guy who pulled the trigger, and the other suspect who, it has been pointed out, is also black and has a record.

    If it is so widely established and you want to be believed, post it.

    The FACT is that no one on these boards knows jack ****. Everyone on these boards is posting what they BELIEVE to be true as delivered in a highly racially charged atmosphere, driving an eons old political debate from within a very filtering media.

    With that as a backdrop I know this: A black kid is dead at the hands of a white cop. Again.
    The nation is more divided than ever.
    The nation is quibbling over details that will likely never be known. Again.
