    I did not jump to conclusions if they were white or black.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    This sudden narrative of supposed " Police brutality " isn't whats wrong with those communities.

    Whats wrong with those communities won't be addressed just like it wasn't addressed after the Ferguson debacle finally blew over.

    But at least Millions of self rightous and misled Americans will be able to sit back and say that " something's being done for those poor people "...
    It is not a sudden narrative made up from thin air. Has been ongoing for decades.
    That is just one of the issues.

    The way the news media harped on it, and the blacks in Baltimore, it would appear that they all thought they were white officers.

    That is assuming again
    Harping on a man with a severed spine?
    This brutality, overstepping either the laws or Dept Regs has become routine across the US.
    Your country has a policing problem and blames blacks as causing all of it. Which is complete BS
    No, they cause problems without doubt, same as hispanics, whites and so on.
    But do some checks and see how commonplace brutality is within some police forces.

    What a gratuitous, idiotic statement to make. Do you have any information on this 18 yr old? The six police officers are well known, employed, anchored in the city and without criminal records - or they wouldn't be active police - and their bail was set accordingly. And only one officer was charged with murder of any sort. The fact this 18 year received a higher bail may relate to his own criminal record, but that's only speculation on my part and I won't make a blanket, unsubstantiated, hyperbolic, statement because of it.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    It's funny, because here in Toronto I saw it in one of our papers - pictures of the six officers - shortly after the charges were announced. I even mentioned it on one of the threads here a few days ago and posters were surprised.

    They harped on them being white because the only officers who appeared in the video widely shown were white - assumptions grew from that.

    I bet if I had checked the Guardian, I would have seen the truth. I'm going to have to get back to checking all the British links. Hang the American news media.
