The way we use our police, the way we exercise government force against the rights and liberties of the citizens, is being questioned. We've already seen the reports showing that police departments are used as city fundraisers, and we know from incident after incident the willingness of government to use deadly force against its own people.

    What we need is to return to sense and sensibility. Government is necessary, policing is necessary, we cannot resort to more violence and killing of our own. But we need to get government force into proper proportion and we need to start investigating more reliable less-than-lethal weapons that our police can use against civilians.

    The total goal should be a higher level of mutual respect and courtesy.
    One of the most interesting parts of this to me is how the party that claims to distrust government is firmly on the side of the police in these cases. They will twist and turn whatever they can to excuse law enforcement and defend them no matter how obvious their wrongdoing is.

    Some people hate the niggers more than they distrust the govt.

    The report deals with over 70 interviews of people, city officials, judges and others in the law enforcement community.

    If there is anything about emails in there it isn't relevant.

    This is:]
    I know what the report states, once again, I refer to my previous statements that the head of the DOJ has a credibility problem and the one he has in control of the civil rights division is a leftist with a history of leftist activism.

    Traffic violations do not prove blatant out of control racism. Nor does 90% of documented force in arrests when a town is almost 70% of the African-American race. If that were the case, then every major city in the U.S. that has a huge number of African American residency, their police force must be equivalent to the Ku Klux Klan by these standards. This is absurd and manufactured outrage. Check Chicago arrests by force, L.A., Atlanta etc. of African Americans. The percentage of African Americans being arrested does not have to do with racism, but the breakdown of their families. As I stated earlier, 70% of all African American babies are born out of wedlock which means they are born into poverty. In urban areas heavily populated by African Americans have a very high unemployment rate. These areas also have had a very high dropout rate. None of that has to do with racism but all can be factors that lead to criminal behavior.

    Truth. It always comes back to that and, with this DOJ Report and the recent frat video, the pervasive racism that's operated in secret for so long is finally coming out in the public. Thank God.

And here, as a liberal, I always point out that I don't blame any high profile conservative or the NRA or any political wing when some crazy guy decides he's going to spill the blood of tyranny or some tripe like that. I guess the NRA's new motto should be "guns don't kill people, factual DoJ reports do!" I guess personal responsibility is no longer a primary concern for those of you on the right.

    Also, a lot of liberals who do blame Republicans and the NRA for inciting violence are not playing those cards today. I am a deeply flawed human being, but at least I'm consistent, and let me tell you: it's not that hard.
    It's in situation like these when people's true beliefs and motivations are revealed. It's in moments like these when you realize that arguments about "personal responsibility" are just a cover for whatever they truly believe that is too "taboo" to state openly.

    And coincidentally, it's the same people who are defending those frat boys that are denying that the police in Ferguson are racist, and are blaming Holder and Obama. The same people have no problem with the doctor who refused to examine a baby because its' parents were lesbians.

    My favorite part of this thread is people pretending that they actually care about the cops and their families and that they aren't just using them for their political ends.
