    The lack of education is systematic and inflicted upon them. Look, the wonder is not that some blacks go insane and/or become criminals: The wonder is that some blacks, despite all the obstacles thrown in their way, rise up and somehow make it through. Whites cannot possibly understand what blacks have to go through just to get to an equivalent point in life as whites do. "Responsibility"...LOL...that word does not mean what you think it means.
    I taught inner city kids and lower socio-economic kids for over 10 years now... if you did you would see that a lot of the crap that people like you use as excuses is garbage. Education is an avenue out. People are there that care and genuinely want to help. There is a big picture and people like Sharpton don't teach them about it. They teach hate. They teach cycle's of poverty and how to blame others. It is pathetic. I would love to see these kids, at least a lot more of them, doing better and changing things but it is not happening...

    Oh...uh...yeah.

    Basically, if we could get instant replay for law enforcement interactions, that would clear up so many problems just like it did in sports.

    Take for example a scene out of "Orange is the new black" where Vee's corrupt [SPOILERS!!!!!] paid cop tells RJ to catch, throws him a pistol to RJ's complete surprise and then guns him down for having a threatening weapon.

    An always on camera would completely prevent that kind of corruption.

    Not sure why, given some recent events a Cop can get be on camera using an against policy choke hold until killing someone. WTF will a camera change if police are above the law?

    My concern is that this turns every officer into an NSA drone.
    My concern is that we pay for stuff that is totally under control of others. When that video shows that the others (our civil servants) screwed up then it is "lost" (like the IRS Emails) but when it shows that J. Q. Public was really rioting, looting or burning that a plea bargain is still OK so long as they cooperate and turn in Mr.Bigger for some all American asset forfeiture.

    I'd further like to see them stream live back to police headquarters 24/7. I'm less concerned about monitoring police and see technology as a tool to help police keep the public safe.

    He uses a lot of RPG jargon. The post makes more sense once you look up all the terms--ex., "constitution" and "stat."

    I present to you the concept of intersectionality. Don't ask, just read, just learn up on what it is and what its implications are.

    Pandoras box, im cool with it because
    I dont go around breaking the law. But as soon as a passing cops body cam catches someone doing something illegal and they get locked up for it youll have people crying about big brother and what not.

    Citizens who are (for the interest of security over freedom?) given the right to wave guns around and shoot them at anybody, and then get a paid vacation (suspension? yeah right) for committing the homicide, should definitely be video taped at all times if even allowed to continue to exist.
