    Many here are explicitly trying to pin responsibility for these occurrences on Obama, Holder and Sharpton. Hence, scapegoating.

    You have to admit, Obama and Holder haven't sdone a damn thing to discourage the violence. Sharpton has actually encouraged it.

    All three have made it very clear that they sympathize with the movement, while Sharpton is a leader of the movement.

    While consternating about Brown and Garner and how it proves that the system is racist and out to **** black folks, none of you ever express any outrage over black on black crime.

    I know, but if blacks commit crime at a higher rate per capita, that would explain the data you're citing. I'd still like to see your stats though.

    You have to work today? That sucks.

    " Black lives Matter !! " .....when they're killed by a White Police Officer.

    Otherwise, not so much.

I don't doubt that this evidence you are talking about was there before, but in any case, it doesn't seem to be there any longer unless I'm really looking at the wrong place.
    You are right. They have changed the video. The previous video showed the incident throughout the shooting. Check out the CNN story and video.

    This might be useful at this point -

    Talk show host: Police kill more whites than blacks | PunditFact

    Yes, more whites than blacks die as a result of an encounter with police, but whites also represent a much bigger chunk of the total population.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention keeps data on fatal injuries from 1999 to 2011 and one category is homicides by legal intervention. The term "legal intervention" covers any situation when a person dies at the hands of anyone authorized to use deadly force in the line of duty.

    Over the span of more than a decade, 2,151 whites died by being shot by police compared to 1,130 blacks. In that respect, Medved is correct.

    However, Brian Forst, a professor in the Department of Justice, Law and Criminology at American University, said this difference is predictable.

    "More whites are killed by the police than blacks primarily because whites outnumber blacks in the general population by more than five to one," Forst said. The country is about 63 percent white and 12 percent black.

    Rather than comparing the raw numbers, you can look at the likelihood that a person will die due to "legal intervention" in the same way you might look at the chance a person will die in a car accident or a disease like lung cancer. When you do that, the numbers flip.
    A 2002 study in the American Journal of Public Health found that the death rate due to legal intervention was more than three times higher for blacks than for whites in the period from 1988 to 1997.

    I've asked repeatedly for instances of Sharpton encouraging violence. Crickets.
