    Look I get that there is a higher incidence of fatal shootings of black men, but I don't subscribe to that sort of sensationalism. I think there are a lot of dynamics that go into the reasons behind the high incidence of shootings of black men and not all of those reasons are insidious.

    I suspect the police see it as well and they are reacting accordingly.
    Incredible.

    Of course people are terrified by the police and run out of fear. They know they cannot trust the police not to beat or kill them. Look at the guy that stole the horse. When the cops caught him, 10 of them beat the crap out of him.

    Or even the one in SC that shot the heavy 50 yr old man to death instead of chasing him or just going and arresting him at home later.

    It would be lot cheaper tho, huh? To have alot less costs for prisons and courts? I hear that stoning in the Middle East is cheap AND good exercise.

    Makes you wonder why black men run under those circumstances. Oh wait, maybe it's those outstanding warrants and criminal records

    B) I find it MORE morally troubling that guilt is being established before the facts are out. I'm sure you would too, assuming that you don't look at this with a slant. The fact is there are possibilities that are not completely remote, and in fact closer to 50/50 that this was NOT a criminal action. That it could simply be accidental. An unintended consequence of police going hands on.

    I'm sure you people down hard when you did BJJ. Not like you tried too right? I do it once in a while. I'm a big guy. Sometimes I have to lay a knee down to help a training partner out in the rib department.

    Again. This isn't "victim blaming." It is fact observation. The facts do not point to one cause. They point to many potential causes. Only someone trying to serve a cause would draw only one from these.
    I'm also a larger person (6'4", 215), and yeah, stuff happens in sports, but sports are recreational and consenting. Interaction with law enforcement isn't something you sign up for at the local YMCA. It's a likely unexpected encounter that you're unprepared for and potentially only get to do once, without do overs or tap outs.

    Re: Baltimore on edge after arrestee's fatal spine injury

    This stuff happens at the hands of cops to white people and latinos on a daily basis and nobody says a word. While I feel bad for the black guy who got his neck snapped by cops, I also feel bad for the tens of thousands of white and latino guys who've died in police custody and to this day nobody knows their names and never will because nobody cares.

    White or latino guy dies in police custody? Oh. What's for lunch? Black guy dies in police custody? National media attention and civil rights investigations.
