    The penalty for reckless driving is quite often death, but not necessarily the death of the driver.

    As for cops chasing anyone and firing 137 bullets, that sort of thing should only happen in the Dirty Harry movies. The penalty for shooting willy nilly that many rounds (or any rounds) in a populated place is quite often death as well, but not the death of the person doing the shooting.

    137 rounds @ 13 officers, account for roughly less than 11 rounds apiece.

    000.001% of protesters turn into rioters and yet you call the "Humanitization of the Ghetto" movement "animals". Sure you arent racist or something?

    I'm glad the cop's okay. Those two in the car are dead because they ran from the cops.
    Running from a cop is not an offence worthy of execution. Cops are not Judge Dredd. The cop stated he feared for his life. Well.. If he was so damn scared why did you jump on the hood like a cowboy and execute them? He obviously was not scared. He was playing cowboys and indians with his badge and a real gun.

    Some people need to look past police accountability. The realization that some cops are evil and snuffing average joe's would shatter their paradigm and force them to rethink life and where they really stand in society. For them cops are knights in shining armor and everyone the cop targets is bad, except accidents... and accidents are ok.

    Also, the prohibition in the Constitution is against Cruel and Unusual punishments. What that means depends on what one's views may be. The founding fathers did a lot of things modern, especially leftist, would be considered cruel. I consider an ineffective prison/punishment system to be cruel to the greatest number of people and thus any effective system, no matter how cruel to the individual criminal, would be less cruel over all.
    I see. You love America, its just all those Americans you hate.

    Your numbers are WAY off. Open your eyes. You're still seeing "hands up" all over the place, even though Michael Brown's hands were proven clearly to not be up.

    Look at Baltimore. A rash of homicides is hitting the city. Cops are being surrounded by mobs when they respond to a call. It's chaos. All because of a guy who had a mile-long arrest record that went crazy in a police van and accidentally killed himself.

    Again, open your eyes.

    You are an idiot for attributing years and years of systemic behavoir to 1 single incedent. FACT: Blacks are more likely to receive punishment for the same crime as a white while the white is more likely to be let off with a warning. FACT: When the victim is black it is more likely that the prosecution lands a milder sentence for the white criminal. FACT: Cops target black people more because statistics show black people are more likely to commit a crime, causing a compounded effect of cops super scutinizing black people more than white people, further bolstering the statistics.

    The people there see it as "This crap has been going on too long, Now we are fed up" and you see it as "Stupid people defending a criminal"

    And actually the proof in the Brown case is more indicative that he had his hands up in a surrendering position, but the news told you the proof says his hands were up and you believe it. Go and look at the autopsy report. The bullets only could have been caused if his hands where in front of him and raised a good bit. But this isnt about brown at all. It is about police systemically targeting "the ghetto" and treating them like sub-humans.
