If you have a community of black people and one of the only white people they encounter on a daily basis is a white cop, there's going to be hostility when they're telling you what to do. I think it's totally reasonable to say that the officer responding to a community should reflect that community. And one of the most defining characteristics of this community was that they're black....

 

 The racial makeup of the city was 29.3% White, 67.4% African American

But...but the cop on the far right is black...?

Came here expecting this topic, also came here expecting Ayo to be defending the "community."

No surprises so far.

Apparently if you have a discussion you're "defending the community".

Sometimes I forget the internet is about circle jerking and vomitting whatever agenda your team declares.

 

Continue this constructive conversation among yourselves.  :heist:

these are cops

If your point was to discount the militarization of police, you failed pretty badly. In fact, the story you pulled this from (http://www.slate.com...protesters.html) mostly agrees with me.

The vandalism on the pictured mailbox is the most noteworthy part of it for this discussion.

Four people injured by thrown crap last night and two people shot by non-police; one of which died.

Oh yeah. Peaceful protesters alright.

No, you're assuming I'm picking sides or looking for people to blame.

And I'm not. I'm discussing elements of this issue and offering possible improvements in their community to reduce the hostility. 

 

Most people on the internet want to just talk shit and argue about the position they decided on since the day this happened. 

 

the thing is, the police have no responsibility to educate people or to try to compromise with them.

 

it's as simple as: here is the law. our job is to enforce the law. if you don't obey the law, we're going to bust your ass.

 

the community at large is responsible for whatever measures are necessary to avoid that confrontation. be it education, changing the laws, demilitarization of the police, whatever.

What's really funny is that this thread - a story from a town that you probably didn't know existed before today, and have almost certainly never stepped foot into - is already well into its second page in one day.

 

But not a single mention of Rick Perry's indictment.

I don't see a bunch of republicans rioting and looting on the Rick Perry charges, that don't look like they will even stick.

It must be really difficult for these upstanding citizens to protest peacefully until the sun comes up and still put in 40 hours a week at their jobs. I don't know how they do it.

Well, at least it will be easy to find an unbiased jury pool in StL county for any trials that might come from this.

 

Three cheers for the mainstream media propaganda machine!

so there was another shooting today. this time with indisputable video proof. the journalists, as usual, express a distinct lack of understanding of how self-defense situations are and should be handled.

Why was that guy trying to make a point like that?  Why are you going to advance on armed people (officers) with a knife?  Why didn't you just take your stolen soda's and leave?  Why did you wait around for the cops to show up?  

 

He went in there on purpose to cause an altercation.  This gets zero sympathy from me.......his point had nothing to do with theft.
