    Most young black men are killed by other young black men.
    I think I'm going to start charging every time someone says that in order to deflect from the actual issue being discussed. Most young white men are killed by other young white men, too. And there's just as much violent criminality from poor whites as there is from poor blacks. There's just as much "thug" culture. It's less DMX and more Breaking Bad. Except police don't kill young white men as normal course. I wonder what makes such a difference, since every other factor is nearly equal.

    And, of course, I didn't mention race. I talked about police procedure and the rules governing their actions.

    I think most people agree that this White against Black thing is being magnified by the MSM for reasons that may be political, but are certainly divisive.

    While news of Eric Garner or Treyvon Martin can continue for months or years, other stories barely get a mention. Perhaps they shouldn't because it only stirs up further divisiveness and unrest but if these things are going to be reported perhaps all cases should be reported honestly.

    I don't think that is true....What is true is that if you fight a cop, and try to take his gun, you're probably going to get shot. If you resist arrest with 5 cops surrounding you, you're probably going to get taken down in not so polite action...What gets me about this is that somehow the people protesting these two's death, are somehow making the argument that each incident the cops should have said "oh, you don't want to be arrested? ok, carry on"... That's NOT how it happens...

    It seems that what gets you is a complete lack of understanding of what's actually being discussed. And, of course, that police actually have probable cause to arrest people. The NYPD had no probable cause to arrest Garner. They simply decided, in complete disregard for the law that they are tasked to uphold, to attack and kill him.

    That's funny, I was in that march and didn't hear anyone say they wanted dead cops. Also, the protest was well below 34th street by the time the sun set. I don't know who those people are, but they weren't part of the 50 or so thousand that I was marching with. The "what do we want" chant was followed by "justice". Just so you know.

    What a load. Blacks can pull themselves out of the gutter if they wanted. But they don't want to because it's easier to live on government freebies.

    They did have probable cause in both cases, but please do educate me to what is being discussed and by whom.

    As for the video, it's right there on film, you can deny it all you want doesn't mean that it didn't take place.

    We can hear what was being chanted, and its quite clear. That's why it's unwise to march with any mob, no matter whether my sympathy with their cause(as in the Garner case). Nor would I chant.

    And how did that fit on your sign?

    Blacks murder blacks far more than cops kill blacks. I know it does not fit your narrative. But that is by far the largest problem.
