    "Generations of abuse" let's bring that in to focus. If my grandfather was a victim of something I am intelligent enough to grasp the concept that was then and this is now, to do otherwise is simply using the past as an excuse to break the laws. A gun is used by the NYPD once in every 300,000 confrontations with civilians today. How does that compare with 100 years ago? You tell me. "Historic Prospective", my butt. It is antagonistic to keep bring up slavery and the civil rights abuses of the past as an excuse. Seems to me I don't see minorities protesting billions of welfare dollars going to the "poor", "poor " meaning those people that quit school, have no fathers, are addicted to booze and drugs, have never so much as thought of trying to improve their lives blaming the white race for everything wrong in their lives.What was the color of the skin of the persons that sold human beings to slavers? The sellers are 50% of the slave trade are they not?

    Yeah.

    Because law enforcement is so complicated there's no way a "civilian" could possibly grasp it.

    Look, you can say whatever you want.

    But when folks like me (white, upper middle class, fairly conservative, veterans) start questioning the way cops are doing business it doesn't bode well for cops.

    Traditionally I'm the kind of guy that you find in law enforcement's corner.

    So whatever. Pretend that there isn't a problem.

    And when cops get shot and the community's response is, "Mehhh", don't act like you don't understand why.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    In response to what I've bolded, no, their safety isn't more important.

    Yes. He attacked someone. That's called "Assault". It's the same in every state.

    You don't mean brown do you? Because that is a poor choice of straws. He was a scumbag.

    Yes, a couple of someones, the store owner and the cop.

    Yet, the headline that kept being repeated was "white cop shoots unarmed black teenager" instead of "thug commits strong arm robbery, attacks cop, gets shot for his trouble. Good job."

    Oh, and he was walking down the middle of the street at night. Too bad some black guy didn't run over him. We'd never have even heard of the incident.

    Even if he did mean Brown, when the original riots and unrest began, the story reported was eyewitnesses saw police shoot an unarmed guy who was running away.
