    No, I clearly pointed out that politicians do, in fact, use such situations for political gain as well.

    However, I also pointed out the absurdity of your thinking and characterization of the heart of African Americans. Yes, there are some people, as well as, activist elements out there that do come onto the scene like flies and roaches when they "smell" an opportunity to exploit a given situation to their advantage, but that in no way discounts those Blacks who show up in support of Blacks who experience a tragic situation any more than it discounts any White person who shows up in support of a White person who needs moral support. I've illustrated both extremes very clearly.

    But again, YOU choose to ignore it.

    This time it is hard to blame officers for being brutal. Maybe it is time to accept there is a reason behind police brutality except for deprived and immoral nature of American policemen (according to liberals). How many cases could have ended like this if officer didn't follow the instruction and shoot the suspect? I bet potential criminals' lives are less valuable than lives of law-abiding cops. Not all of them are good but attacking American police in general is a sign of anti-governmental propaganda.

    The fact is you still want to make it be about black and white. Its not. Its about scumbags that exploit tragedy for cause and that is not an exclusive club.

    But that's NOT how you presented the situation.

    Is it my or your or someone else's fault? Many people in this country are poor yet they choose other paths in life and don't turn to crime. Afro-Americans should help themselves. Instead of living decent life it is much easier to blame cops, whites and society in general for the bitter cup.

    Second, African Americans have only truly been able to thrive for about 60 years (or less in some places) because of the Jim Crow laws. This means that there has been only 2 generations that could pull their family from the bottom where society had previously put them. Compare this to basically any other race we can see that Blacks have had much much less time to improve their socioeconomic standing. Since it is logical that poverty=more crime it's apparent that the reason for a lot of Black crime is poverty, not culture. Stop being a blind bigot and open up your face to reality.
    Thank you, catch22.

    I've been saying this for quite some time. It's unfortunate that some people refuse to believe it and instead believe that just because "they" made the welfare rules and, as such, threw tons of money at the many problems many African-Americans face today that "their taxes" have somehow been squandered. These same people forget that Whites (Hispanics and some Asians) use these taxpayer benefits just as much if not more than Blacks do. But main point is that which you've so plainly stated:

    African Americans have only truly been able to thrive for about 60 years (or less in some places) because of the Jim Crow laws. This means that there has been only 2 generations that could pull their family from the bottom where society had previously put them. Compare this to basically any other race we can see that Blacks have had much much less time to improve their socioeconomic standing.
    The moment these bigots begin to accept that the very system of things they lament, that they claim should have been such a "leg up" to African-Americans has instead been a hindrance in many regards, that's the moment they'll start working to truly help change things. Of course, WE, as Black people DO need to take more responsibility for ourselves and as a whole stop perpetuating the problems that in many cases are our own undoing. Nonetheless, to think that only after 60 years of equality that Black people will somehow "get it right" is a fool-hearty notion. You guys (White people) have had 395 years to "get it right" since 1620.

    I responded directly to the OP and the OP was ALL ABOUT the Boston incident. When you responded to me I very clearly indicated it was NOT an exclusive group, nor was it about 'black'. But that's all you see in your responses.

Notice in your quoted statement Ikari did not say cops are bad, only that if you are a cop, you can get away with something. Just being able to get away with something does not mean you actually are doing that.
    Where did I say anything about liberals? Both are very anti-cop, in every aspect. Again, choose any cop bashing thread they've participated in and you'll see the depth of the hatred. But they are not the only ones here.

    Disgraceful that this man shot the officer in the face. His death is the consequence of his own actions.

    The majority of police officers are just doing their jobs, protecting their community from criminal elements.

    But I do not agree that attacking the police is a sign of anti-governmental propaganda but the result of lacking morals of some people. Just because some cops do immoral things does not justify anyone committing acts of vengeance on the rest of the police force.
