    Wapner is too old to be a judge. And Judge Milian is of Hispanic descent so SC won't pick her.

    Speculate for me and tell me a scenario where the shooting of a man moving away, with his back to the officer, approx 20ft at the time of the shooting. We know Mr. Scott didn't possess a gun, or it would have been mentioned in the officer's report. So please, speculate for me, under what circumstances could you imagine that might of taken place that would have justified what we saw.
    But the man did have a gun. The officer put on the police report "he tried to take my gun" and then planted the tazer on him. That's the retro-active proof.

    And don't forget that prosecutors are often in league with the cops. The DA may botch the case on purpose.

    Your welcome.
    Yes, and when someone becomes a policeman, he ceases to be a person. And he loses his citizenship. Of course!

    That should automatically exclude them from being able to enjoy Constitutional rights and have the same privileges as civilians (the People).

    A separate system should be set up to handle abusive police officers.


    ?

    Please cite the part of the constitution that says police officers are exempted from rights?

    That is the most outrageous statement I have encountered in a long, long time.

    And since when are police mandated to maintain order with "force". You have a terribly misguided idea of law and order I suspect is based on Bruce Willis movies.

    I am sorry to tell you this but "we the people" appears no where in the legal document known as the United States Constitution.

    "We the people.." are the famous first three words of the preamble to the constitution which has no legal standing whatsoever.'

    These erroneous declarations were funny at one point, but disturbing in the fact they are so ubiquitous with the American left who appear to hate cops.....

    I don't agree that this is about race. I believe this is about power. Race is only in play because American blacks tend to not have the same level of power in local government as American whites.

    Hardly. There have been numerous incidents of police misconduct caught and video and juries that walk them. Take a look starting with Rodney King and go from there. BTW...I don't "overlook" behavior by any thugs, regardless of color and regardless of whether or not the thug carries a badge and wears a uniform.

    Blacks can be racists too.

    That's absolutely true. But is doesn't mean that race doesn't also play a major role.
