    Women? Happily married. The best part is that I've made you look like the intellectually deficient debater that you are and I didn't even have to work up a sweat. Now move along, we've got no time for those who put their cowardice on full display.

    That, or black officer will be assigned to black neighborhoods, and whites to white neighborhoods. How racially divided does that sound?
    Perhaps that is what is needed to be done.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Because you have to skirt the Constitution to do what you want, leaving that hole open for all sorts of future abuse. And that's just the first hurdle. Do you seriously believe the NSA won't have access to the daily camera take? Really? How is this different than adding a million drones to the public sector filming 24/7/365? Then there's the who's going to pay question. Federal mandates to the states will only come with insufficient startup funding. A year down the line, county and city budgets that are already stretched to the breaking will be well and truly broken. What sort of tradeoffs in policing does that create? It won't be pretty.

    Btw, how do you hire for that and not run afoul of just about every anti-discrimination law on the books?

    I don't think we fully understand what happens to officers who are hit with the charges that Ferguson's cop was hit with. Their lives are ruined.

    If black neighborhoods don't trust white cops? Don't put white cops in the street.

    I've been watching COPS this morning while on computer. Almost every single arrest, white or black, the perp is yelling, "I can't breath! OMG! I have allergies! I have a back injury! You're killin' me, man!" Saw one guy (white) get arrested after a foot chase and being tased that, when escorted in cuffs to the patrol car for transport, banged his head against the roof of the squad car hard enough that he could've knocked himself out. Just a little insurance, I'd imagine. Apparently he was too stupid to know there were two TV cameras pointed at him at the time.

    It's a huge problem. I don't know the solution. But I wouldn't be a cop today for nuthin'.
    The fatal flaw in that logic- there just aren't enough black cops. And that isn't likely to change. what black kid would want to be a cop when he is growing up in a culture that demonizes the police?

    In these last two incidents, it is rare to see any black person defend the cops or even put any blame at all on the black males involved.

    You've done nothing of the sort, but live in your make-believe world and go on hating all those that make your pathetic life safe and free of worry. Yet another of our nation's unapologetic leeches that bitch and produce nothing. So sad that this is where you have to simulate your sense of self worth.

    dude, the NSA ALREADY has access to everything through cell phones. now THAT is unconstitutional.

    and i don't believe for a ****ing second that OSHA or any of that **** is unconstitutional. congress can pass ****ing bills that become law when the president signs them. ****, even the founding fathers did **** that is much more unconstitutional than passing a law that says cops have to wear cameras so that there's a record of what happened at point of arrest, and to prevent cities from getting burned down because no one knows what the **** happened. i'll tell you, John Adams is damned lucky that there weren't message boards back then.

    Doesn't sound much like racial harmony, does it?

    No, they want the segregation, they just don't want the man to tell them they have to.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
