    Of course you don't know, because the vitriol has nothing to do with police brutality, really.

    Police: Officer in Missouri shot, Killed man who Pulled Gun..... [W:22]

    Differences aside, Merry Christmas Kobie.
    My point is that the justice system has crapped all over black Americans for decades. They are routinely sentenced and jailed at disproportional rates (even for non-violent and/or drug related crime), they are much more likely to be killed by police than their white counterparts, and many often see themselves as victims of undue harassment from LEOs. There is a deep-seated mistrust among many in the black community of the justice system -- one that makes it far less likely they'll just unquestioningly accept that same justice system's findings at face value.

    Merry Christmas to you as well.

    It looks that way, doesn't it? Why is that, you think?

    It only looks that way to those desperate to scapegoat.

    Maybe, because the rest of your post doesn't reveal any details as to why it is so.

    I'm not convinced it's that simple. I think it's possible that the reason blacks are convicted more often is because, as a group they commit more crimes. Please don take that as a blanket statement that all blacks are more likely to be criminals. I am vehemently anti racism.

    So, threats to kill cops, two dead cops and millions of dollars in destroyed property is what, exactly? A figment of the imagination? It doesn't really exist? The media is lying about it? What?

    I'm not talking about raw numbers, I'm talking about rates. I'm on my phone now, so citing sources is a bit of a pain, but when I'm at work later I can post some actual stats.
