Yeah, there is no evidence anywhere that police treat blacks differently than whites....being black doesn't have anything to do with it and the fact you have to try and pull the race card shows how bad your argument really is.
He's a child and they do stupid things. It's part of the job description.however the bigger question is why is in he in a public park pointing guns around in random directions.
Its a tragic situation...one created by the kid and his grandmama for not dealing with it when she found out he was doing it in the first place. Its not murder.
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.

The cops ****ed up.

you are making assumptions. good thing you are not a cop or else i have a feeling you would be in a body bag as you would get killed.Bottom line is at a minimum it appears the police handled this poorly from start to finish and if it appears on any training video, an example of how to mishandle what should be a routine call. And it cost Rice his life, so we are talking about it. I think people defending the cops here are giving the profession a bad name by trying to defend incompetence and tell us incompetence is in fact an appropriate police response to this situation.
you lack proper judgment in a situation that could cost someone else their life including your own. this is evident by your posts.
cops aren't perfect we don't expect them to be, and when they screw up. see the guy at the pool party, or the guy that shot the other guy running away and planting the taser on him.
then we expect appropriate punishment to be handed down.
this case the cops will not go on trial for murder.
