    Yeah, but when it's a black kid, it's so much easier to justify.

    Wrong again.

    You constantly justify any level of violence by cops against people.

    It is quite an ignorant position.

Especially if the kid is black.
    Do you think that the policemen would have come into their house and pulled a gun on them if they hadn't been destroying someone else's property?

    Quite possibly just unholstering a service weapon is "any level of violence"? Take a breath and sit down. You are looking for an argument that is not there.

    It's a threatening act. As is physically pointing it at the children and forcing them to lie on the ground spread out. Both of which were entirely unnecessary given that the children were peacefully building a tree fort. It was unprofessional, and blind defense of cops is exactly what allows this unwarranted behavior to continue to happen.

    It keeps circling back to that. You mean once I have the all-mighty, magical police badge that absolves me of all wrong-doing, I can go around and terrorize children? How about no. I don't have to be a cop to criticize a cop who was clearly in the wrong.

    It's almost always a race issue. Cops don't possess perfect information when they approach people who are the subject of a police complaint. Racial information is immediately evident to the cop. Same with age information. This is the cop's life that is being put on the line when he responds to every call, so he needs to assess how much risk he faces. He can see 3 black grandmothers sitting by the tree or 3 young black males in the tree with axes or machetes. He's going to treat the situations differently.

    Never said that. Only that there are two sides to a story. You believe the kid and his mother unconditionally.
