    Homicide detectives are always called when someone dies in an unexplained way, in order to collect evidence just in case the death was the result of criminality. A coroner's report will clear things up pretty quickly. If it wasn't natural causes, then the conjecture can run wild. I'm betting it's natural causes.

    As an aside, I don't think this death and the Gray death are even remotely similar. It is a very rare occurrence that a prisoner dies in custody and as such a great deal of investigation takes place, often taking months. We have one here in Canada that's been the subject of an inquest for years - but no rioting here, just saying.

    Probably not even protests, right? I have to ask, was the prisoner part of a group that's been routinely abused by the police and penal system as the impoverished and especially non-white impoverished have been here in the States?

    You can, "just say" all you want, but before you imply a valid comparison, it'd be important to know and share more details.

    No - it was a young white girl, in this particular case. However, is the concern in Baltimore police brutality or is it racism? Seems to me, if the complaint is that cops are lawless, cops are over militarized, cops are abusive, etc., it shouldn't matter the colour of the victim's skin. Or are you saying that only people of colour should be demonstrative and destructive?

    We, here in Toronto, have had many people of all flavours and sexes who've died interacting with police and we've had no rioting for any of them. In fact, in most cases, where protests have occurred, it has been mothers of black youth who have died at the hands of other black youth who rally their communities in an attempt to stop the violence. Many of them are mothers of children who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. And in all of these protests, the police walk along with those trying to change their communities for the better - they ask police here to participate, and they do.

    Different culture, different attitudes, and different outcomes for the most part.

    It's about police brutality against the impoverished, mostly non-white communities. You haven't figured that out yet, John? Seriously? Well since I know you can be pretty smart, I'm going to have to figure you're being intentionally obtuse and stupid. Bless your heart.

    Not intentionally obtuse and stupid - but thanks for the blessing - right back attcha.

    My point was there are others, other than blacks, in America who are subjected to what would be considered police brutality and sometimes die at the hands of officers and yet there are no riots, vandalism, looting, etc. I distinctly remember the young mentally ill white man who was killed by police in America trying to restrain him and his calls to his dad that they were trying to kill him - the video was disturbing. But I don't remember that situation leading to riots - I do remember significant protests, but not riots. So why is it that so frequently when a black person dies, rioting is the go to option of choice?

    These APU's have to be running probably on diesel as well, so is it possible that the driver could have gotten carbon monoxide poisoning from the APU?

    Political Pandering is why. Supposed racism is a hang up for the left in the US. In many of the poor black communities, the cops put up with a lot of harassment and abuse for the residents instead of cooperation because the politicos have convinced them that the police are after them for being black instead of just doing their jobs of arresting criminals. Haven't you been paying attention, it is the cops and the right, supposedly supporting cops, that cause more black men to be in prison than college. Has nothing to do with the fact that they committed crimes.

    Impoverished area are always the highest crime areas. Children in these areas are drug into gangs and other criminal activities because the residents don't help the cops clean up the streets. One generation of criminals keep the next generation tied down to crime this way and have a devastating affect on those seeking education and means of rising above it. Seems they would rather have their kids killed by gang violence and their schools vandalized to run down to ruins with any quality teachers scared away than see another black man who committed a crime go to jail.
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
