New Study Says White Police Officers
Are Not More Likely To Shoot Minority Suspects

He didn’t shoot him.

People are calling the cop racist.  How do we know that?  Did he ever make a racist comment or does he wear a white robe on the weekends?  To me, the cops is a prick who knew what he was doing.  But he didn't plan on Floyd dying.  So fascist would be more accurate than racist.

Exactly!!!

The issue is police brutality against all people committed by fascist goons employed as police officers.

That's all.

Norm is relative and defined by those who use that term.

When dealing with frequency, any recurring event of police brutality is unacceptable, as with any crimes.  With police brutality, however, it is extra evil, since those guilty are the ones who are given public trust, unlike the common criminal, who has none.

so now we're getting somewhere
if you say it's the norm, then it's the norm
I get it, what you say goes...

Don't make it sound like I was throwing personal attacks at everyone.  People throw attacks and questions to me and I respond, accordingly.

victim much?

Don't get dumb with me.  You started the exchange.  I was not trying to start anything with you.

for a "practicing economist", you sure don't have a good grasp of statistics if you believe that incidents like this are "the norm"...

QUESTION: What do we have here right above?

ANSWER: It appears to be an insult that started the whole exchange.

Ding, ding, ding ,ding, ding...

Perhaps now,  the idiots will quit burning down their city.
But I doubt it.
Those idiots also vote for the guys that hire cops like the
ones they don't like.

But before I pass judgement, I'll let the courts sort it out.

I despise cops, don't talk to them, and avoid them.
They are a necessary evil. But they are evil.

"Look at the police officers that are standing behind us right now allowing everybody to express themselves in a calm way just to stand for what's right. So Hawai'i is great at that because we are a melting pot here. So I feel like yes, lets lead the charge," said one demonstrator.

I found this odd, there's a large mob trying to force their way into the CNN HQ in Atlanta.  Looks like they want to tear up the place.
