    Ah... I come up with one source after the other how racism is institutionalized in the US society, and specifically the US police force and justice department. And because you read things you do not like... you're just saying "I don't understand".

    Yeah. You sure showed me! lol

    Violent crime like murder is low across all demographics.

    No, combat vets make good recruits, they're used to dealing with stressful situations and working in a disciplined environment, not "Prone to be whacks", my GOD!

    And no, racism is not institutionalized in US society and no one has ever produced any evidence to prove otherwise.

    You're not listening to anything I'm saying. Your source has nothing to do with it.

    You are going on and on about drug use when I'm talking actual crime; you know, murders, rapes, assaults.

    But your obsession with drug convictions just cant let the conversation go any further. You haven't addressed any of the violent crimes I've discussed in half a dozen posts. Your only retort is "but drug arrests".

    The 6% of black males in this country commit over half of the violent crime. That's not debatable. Cops patrol where crime takes place.

    It's as simple as that.

    A lore more people do drugs than do rape or kill. So I am pointing at the bulk of the crime not the small %'s.

    While my entire point is showing that the US society is in general rather racist, and I specifically prove that the cops in general are no stranger to that. You're ignoring the point and rant about something I'm not interested in.

    You're citing statistics without considering why those statistics are what they are...

    Obviously more drug related offenses will take place where cops are patrolling. Cops patrol where there is crime.

    You arent going to find a lot of drug arrests where there arent many cops... because they elsewhere dealing with REAL crimes.

    It's a pretty simple concept.

    If you got a source debunking my source than let's have it. I'm not interested in unscientific guessing and think you know best. And so the sources stand... which point out that the cops hunt black people for drug related offenses.

    This all falls in place with the US justice department giving black people harsher sentences under the same circumstances.

    It is what it is.

    I'm thinking a lessor charge too the victim pointed a gun at the officer.
    Which officer was in charge at the scene? Were proper protocols used when they came on the property? Questions to be asked.

    Not sure if he is serious or if he is trolling you. Either way it is hilarious. Never seen a person work harder to not understand a simple concept.

    You're right. The half black Baltimore PD goes out at night to hunt blacks.

    The 65% minority LAPD also hunt blacks.

    The 50% Chicago PD hunt blacks as well.

    Countless cops handle stressful situations every day without going bonkers and murdering people. Recent combat vets that are hired as cops are not suitable for police work and they should never, ever, be hired as cops. Are you familiar with veterans courts? https://www.cga.ct.gov/2011/rpt/2011-R-0421.htm.

    So, on top of the nutty veterans there is also the regular psychos who become cops so that they can kill a person and get away with it because the cop lovers will make excuses for them and pay their legal bills.

    Just because a person is a cop it doesn't mean that he is a good guy. In some cases you would be safer with a rattle snake around your neck than with a cop in your face. In most cities that have backlogs of unsolved crimes chances are the cops are the perps. It is a world-wide problem = https://www.newser.com/story/268379/russian-ex-cop-guilty-of-56-more-murders.html

    That is why a cop is suppose to announce his arrival when conducting a welfare check.

    Cops are thugs, regardless of where they are in the world.

    I don't know what their protocol is but the fact remains he had a gun pointed at him. And a welfare check can be is their welfare in danger due to a criminal in the house. It's not just a "have you fallen and can't get up". The report says officierS were present, was he responsible for the operation ie the one who would be in charge and the one to announce the police presence?

    And where do you find this law or rule or whatever you are claiming? Of just saying what you think the policy should be without actually knowing?

    "He suddenly grabs for his gun, points it at the window and shouts, “Put your hands up! Show me your hands!” before immediately opening fire. "

    Murder one...............I don't know might be a lesser charge depending on the evidence presented in court.

    Why does that question matter? I sometimes leave my door open when I'm home to let a breeze through. Same with windows. So what? I don't owe anyone an explanation for what I do with my own property and neither does/did she. Please tell me you were kidding with this question.

    You have no evidence for this claim beyond wildly irresponsible anecdotes. And your assumption that people with MORE experience with such situations are somehow LESS capable of handling those same situations is frankly insane.
