    Stop making excuses for thuggery, its as tired as the war on women.
    The the police arrest more black people in relation to their percentage of the population does not necessarily mean that crime is overrepresented in the black community. When was the last time they stop and frisked Wall Street and Capitol Hill whites when they were out on the streets of Georgetown?

    I am sure a ton of people could speculate about a number of things Wilson could have done differently to prevent the death of an unarmed man. That level of second guessing was never a subject to the investigation.
    That's probably true, but once you start making excuses for people's lives being threatened not because of a legal infraction gone unpunished but a moral one, you're in trouble.

    But...when was the last time they had reasonable suspicion someone was walking around with an illegal weapon or cocaine in those places?

    So I was completely wrong in guessing his size. Perhaps it is body posture that just doesn't shout out NFL prospect.
    Or it's lawyer coaching him to appear as non-threatening as possible. But hey I'm sure that you, an adult, are indeed so earnestly naive as to assume that the lawyers don't communicate these sorts of things to their clients.

    Stop and Frisk was proven to be a method to generate income and trump up charges. I'm surprised people are pretending they haven't read the reports.

    Considering the number of resignations it's pretty clear that people on the hill and Wall street avoid investigation simply because of the positions they hold.

    Yea. Deadly force is not the best choice when someone is trying to steal your gun and kill you. Look for another alternative. Unless the guy is a white Christian conservative right? Then he gets what he deserves.
