    The Post's analysis also indicates the daily death toll for 2015 is close to 2.6 as of Friday. At that pace, police will have shot and killed nearly 1,000 people by the end of the year, the paper said.

    U.S. Police Have Shot Dead 385 People In Five Months: REPORT

    I'm scared as hell. How did it get this bad? When have they turned into bad characters? And why?! Do the police ever evaluate whether any of those killings are avoidable? or preventable? And what can we do to change the situation? Because the situation is really horrible!
    You're " scared " ??

    You should be scared of these Politically charged manufactured narratives thats led to a explosion in violence in City's like Baltimore.

    I no, I'm not talking about prior to Freddy Gray.

    Now we know " Black lives matter " only of the killer is a accused Police Officer.

    You know who is also scared ? The people that now have to live in City's that are one accusation of " Police brutality " away from riots.

    Or the people and their families who have been driven indoors due to the neutering of Police departments by the Obama DoJ and incompetent City prosecutors.

Shootings directly involving police aside, I suppose we shouldn't even mention how a proven corrupt police department could be indirectly involved in civilian-on-civilian shootings.
    Conspiracy Theory much???????

    So, you're saying that some of those murders were actually committed by cops? Based on what, exactly?
    "Those were lies, pure and simple."

    So you like the situation in Baltimore? That is what we get when the cops stand down and let people kill each other for making a sarcastic joke or just because. Force the cops to step back and innocent people are victimized in much greater numbers than the number of criminal punks that have been killed by cops.

    The victims of the 300+ people that were armed when the cops killed them are the public at large. Do you want to let people who would confront cops with weapons remain on the streets and confront your family with those weapons??

    That tells you something about the hand ringing about the number of troops being killed when it was less than the number of people who are killed from falls during the same period.
    Should we be critical of the police or just accept what they do without any response

    Which words am I not understanding here? Neocons are like blindness followers of the police and believe that the police are always correct, and are ready to submit to the state. Which word do I not understand?

    "[If a person intentionally goes limp, requiring an officer to drag or carry the person in order to accomplish a lawful arrest, that person may have willfully (resisted[,]/ [or] obstructed[,]/ [or] delayed) the officer if all the other requirements are met.]"


    so even if you offer NO physical motion AT ALL, you can be charged with resisting.
    LMAO, damned if you do....

    My point was, you say (or implied) "JUST BE COMPLIANT", and , at the same time, the textbook definition of compliance (with respect to offering violent threat) is illegal.

    Do you not see how fuxxxored that is?

    It's only a guess, but most older people aren't inclined to frequent mobility the way younger people are. I'm the type of person who finds a place I like and stays - others frequently move. I can imagine that many of the older people who live there and stay there have found their neighbourhoods deteriorating around them and they don't want to move - their little place is still their castle and they like it and like the familiarity. Add to that the costs of picking up a family and moving to a new city when you're living a paycheck to paycheck existence, and you have a recipe for invisible walls around your life. In the vast majority of cases, the city has failed them, they didn't fail the city.
    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.

    Neocon. It's patently obvious that you haven't the slightest clue what that word means.
