That’s so sad. I’m not saying it wasn’t justified, just sad that his child had to witness that.

You can't compare apple to oranges. The guy pulled a gun. Blacks are getting shot and killed unarmed.

Yes, liberals think a weapon vanishes into thin air when carried into a gun free zone. A law does that kind of thing you know.

I am pretty sure that dude has known ANTIFA ties and was not allowed on school property to begin with. I will see if I can find the news link I read. And on top of that some of you guys are as bad about making everything about race as the left. Just quit it already. Idiots of every race get shot for being stupid every day.

If true then why didn't we hear about it more? I'd expect it to be ALL over the news.

There were over 1000 people killed by police last year. Few of which make the news.

But a packpack full of 9mm magazines one would think plays right into liberals hands towards gun control. That would be an easy scare news spot.

I very quickly found some stats saying in 2015 and 2016 52% white, 26% black, 17% Hispanic where killed by the police. This is from an article in the Atlantic, but they called it "police violence". So, where's your info from??

Per capita, that is correct.

Whites make up the majority of people killed by police, and the majority of unarmed people killed by police.

And why do you think that is?? You do know that your apparent stance on this has been debunked by facts, right ? Itís a narrative that has been pushed by the MSM and the left. In other words, blacks arenít targeted disproportionately to whites in any way.

The disparities appear to be even starker for unarmed suspects, according to an analysis of 2015 police killings by the Guardian. Racial minorities made up about 37.4 percent of the general population in the US and 46.6 percent of armed and unarmed victims, but they made up 62.7 percent of unarmed people killed by police.

Do you understand what this is saying? Your not a racist, but YOU know that a minority committed the crime that they are now dead for.

So you come on this forum where we are very supportive of LEO and you post a video in which the thumbnail depicts cops as pigs?

Youíve latched on to a false narrative thatís been pushed by the left and the mainstream media.

Forget about your feelings, and look at the facts. Blacks are not being attacked by cops wrongfully. Are there some bad apples, sure just like any profession. But this narrative of it being an epidemic is ridiculous.

I am genuinely interested as well. At my age ( 43 ) I do remember some blatant racism ( cops and citizens ) when I was younger. But it has been many years since I have seen it. I know some individuals still have bias etc. Maybe somehow I am insulated from it? Or those around me know how I am and hide it? I dont know. These days I dont see true racial prejudice. I do see cultural prejudice. I harbor some myself. But everyone I know that I can think of truly believes we are all equal, and would not target someone because of race. Or be more inclined to shoot them or pull them over based on race. Many do indeed look down up many cultural aspects and behaviors. These behaviors are something people can control, but choose not to.

But with this countries history of racism, I can see there being some remnants of fear. Some fear of the past. But would like to know if the fear is really justified. Is someone really more likely to be pulled over because they are black? Or is it certain behaviors one exhibits, an attitude one exudes?

I dont know.

The 3 largest ethnicity's in the US
White:76.6%
Black:13.4%
Hispanic: 18.1%
White alone/not hispanic: 60.7 percent




This is the 2017 violent crimes committed by race..
Offender Race
White 46%
Black or African American 44%
Unknown 8%
American Indian or Alaska Native 1%
Asian 1%
Native Hawaiian 0%
Offenders w/ reported race 382,181

Someone who did not know may think that all crime was committed by only black and whites.. What happens now in these statistics is that Hispanics are counted in with the white. So by this statistic, 76.6% (roughly) of the populations commits 46% of violent crime.. Makes sense, because that is the OVERWHELMINGLY majority. What is disturbing is that 13.3% of the population is right behind that number with 44% of violent crimes being committed....

Now lets throw a kink into these stats. According tho the FBI, in 2016 Hispanics or Latinos (non white), committed 23.8% of violent crime in the US.. So, if that trend continued into 2017, that would mean that Caucasians only committed 22.2% of violent crime (roughly)..

So, we have
Blacks at 13.3% of the population commit 44% of the nations violent crimes.
Whites at 60.7% of the population commit 22.2% of the nations violent crimes.
Hispanics at 18.1% of the population commit 23.8% of the nations violent crimes...

The reason that a higher PER CAPITA number of blacks are shot is because they commit more violent crimes.

No need to bring facts directly from the FBI to state your case. You may trigger his emotions.

It works like this... TBH has posts every day about getting a ticket of some sort that was not justified. We think nothing of it.

When this same thing happens to some black guys they have it in their head it's because they're black.

It's that simple IMO

I was being sincere in my questions, both his age and what he's seen? He probably could have opened my eyes up to something I don't see based on where I live and my conditions. I'm always willing to learn but I just can't ever find anyone who makes such claims that will explain.
