Also, look at what Fergurg is actually writing. They're clearly and over the top victim blaming, and both claiming that if you resist you should be shot and then accusing a black guy that teaches their kids basically the same thing of "hating everyone not of their own race".

Wrong again. Yes, if a person is resisting arrest, the police need to stop it from happening. If a person tries to grab the cop's gun, that is grounds for stopping him. The cop does not have an obligation to not protect his life.

And as for accusing the black guy, I quoted what he said, He said he HATED this country and its countrymen. I asked him why he chooses to stay, given his HATRED (caps were also his).

And as for victim-blaming, is it your opinion that a person making an assertion of being a victim should be believed at all times? Because asking questions about these things is often how the truth comes out (e.g. Duke University, Rolling Stone). And if a person making an accusation should be automatically believed, would it not make sense to extend that expectation to white cops or Hispanic neighborhood watchmen who say, "He attacked me."?

Because they killed the people who can protest their story.

many people do not realize that when it is your word against a corpse, even with witnesses, and the person accused is in some type of law enforcement, they are probably going to walk.

But you know what Rosa Parks didn't do? She didn't yell, "Burn this b~*$* down!"

What she did say was, "It was not pre-arranged. It just happened that the driver made a demand and I just didn't feel like obeying his demand."

So what she did was more along the lines of not getting out of the street while holding some cheap cigars...

Oh, wait.

I guess the bus driver should have shot her, right?

Only if she was running at the bus driver, trying to take his gun.

people forget that the bus driver was in his tights at the time to physically and roughly remove her from the bus. If it was Robert Parks instead of Rosa, that may well have happened.

The time to worry about your rights is when you're safe. Until things change significantly, when you're dealing with a cop, worry about not getting shot. (Especially if you're not caucasian.)

Pretty much this.

I've told my son a few simple things.

The police are not your friends. They are not there to help you. Because they deal with criminals who mostly look like you? To them youre just another criminal. If you can avoid them STAY AWAY.

If you are confronted. Be calm. be polite and comply.

If they want you to jump up and down on one leg and recite the our father? Comply.

If they want you to lay face down on the dirty sidewalk with your arms spread out! Comply.

Comply. Comply. Comply.

Because if you do not? THEY WILL KILL YOU. and then say it was your fault because you have no true right to exist as a human being. And unfortunately most of this country agrees with them.

So Swallow your pride. Comply and Live.

I've been telling him this since he was 10. He's going to be 13 in a few weeks. The amount of pure HATRED I feel for my countrymen and this country in general because I have to prepare him like this at such a young age is maddening. But at the end of the day I'd rather have him humiliated, but home and alive than proud and in a graveyard in a pine box.

I know that there are some of you who are going to be quick to say I'm an awful parent or am teaching him hatred. Some of you have voiced this before. To you I'm going to say one thing: When you are raising a young black male in this country and have also grown up as a young black male in this country THEN MAYBE I'll take seriously anything that you have to say. IF not Then youre just talking about a bunch of things that you know next to NOTHING about.

Not being snarky, genuine question. Since you have your hatred of your fellow countrymen and this country, to the point where you dismiss the views of everybody that is not your race, why do you...

Fergurg, I believe I have been patient with you, but your implications, if not your words and tone, are potentially out of line here.

Answer me this seriously. And take time to consider before you respond.

Are you seriously saying "if you don't like it, leave the country? "

I do agree that there is a high number motivated by racism. I just don't believe that racism is the default answer to shootings, and many people do, even after proof is shown otherwise.
OK, next question: granted that it is less than 100%, what percentage of police shootings motivated by racism is acceptable to you? I think that's what the source of strife is here -- most people would answer "zero" rather than merely "any is okay because we know it's not 100%."

This isn't about whether or police shootings motivated by racism is acceptable. It is about whether or not it is acceptable to automatically assume that police killings are motivated by racism.

Take the case in New York with Eric Garner. Looked like a combination of incompetence and tempers flaring up due to the fact that the cop and the suspect had a history, and not a pleasant one. But unless somehow the black supervisor on the scene was somehow a race traitor, the death was not because he was black.

BTW: You want a conspiracy theory? I got one, and I don't think it's too far-fetched: Garner's legal issues, and the reason he knew that particular cop, were related to not paying cigarette taxes. The mayor of NYC loves himself some taxes. The people who elected him, the same people who would be part of the grand jury pool, elected a man who campaigned on raising taxes.

Is it just me, or does this sound like a "Business man didn't pay the money we wanted him to pay. Sure was a tragic 'accident' what happened to him. If only he had paid, that could have been avoided."

I hate to pull this particular card, but as a mostly life long new yorker, you're in the wrong here. Staten Island has had issues with heavy handed enforcement with respect to minor crime from police FOR YEARS, and while I do think race plays a role here, it pales in comparison to how that particular neighborhood is patroled. Note that they got the guy selling loosies in front of a store in daylight hours. They never ever catch the guys selling crack in the park down the street(don't ask me for the name, I live in Brooklyn). Why? Because those guys are dangerous, and they knew garner was not.

When I was a kid there was an incident where a police officer stopped a black man in my area and asked him for I.D.

The man complied without complaint, but as the man pulled his wallet out of his pocket and opened it to get his I.D. the officer drew his gun and emptied an entire clip into the man at almost point blank range. When the man was on the ground, likely already dead, the cop calmly reloaded and emptied an entire additional clip into the man's unmoving body.

This was on a public street and there were many witnesses who saw the whole thing. The cop claimed he thought some weapon might have been in the wallet so he defended himself. The man was in fact unarmed and turned out to have no criminal record. Less than a week later the shoot was declared justified.

The adults in my area were extremely disturbed and frightened by this but nothing could be done about it. The incident actually spawned a game at my school were we would yell; "Look out, he has I.D.!" before surprise punching each other in the chest.

Now, to be fair many years later a criminal network was taken apart and it was discovered that that same cop(among others) was on their payroll, leading to speculation that maybe that incident had been some kind of hit, but as far as I know nothing ever came of that.

You mean it's possible that a black man could be shot by a cop for a reason other than "Police just hate black people"?

If you read that post and considered the content in support of your position then perhaps you should take a long and honest moment to reevaluate your position.

<removed, because using His name as profanity pisses me off!>

~Ninja'd

My position is simply that there are people tend to genuinely believe that the ONLY reason a cop would shoot a black man is because "police just hate black people"; here's a scenario which, if true, is a different explanation: organized crime putting out a hit. But that possibility goes...

considering that the shooting was originally found to be justified by the police department, I would say that DOES NOT go against the narrative that police hate black people.

If that's all you got from this, then I'm not sure what to say to you.

And I'm sure there was a good reason for the choke hold...

He was resisting arrest. The officer had no choice and didn't intend to kill him anyway.

There's pretty much no way the officer could be convicted or even charged in this case - because they only look at the very end. At each step along the way, the officer did nothing illegal. There were of course plenty of things the officer could have done to deescalate the situation and not wind up forcibly arresting the poor man (and thus killing him), but the police have no obligation to do so.

I'm going to disagree here.

I suppose we have to settle for illustrating the culture that pervades.

A lot of times it has to do with the way things are said, and if it comes across as a directed insult at another person on the forum.

those cops should be fired.

Because I wasn't talking about police shootings vs civilian shootings. I was pointing out that Fergie's evidence for the his claim that military veterans are dangerous crazies waiting to snap was ridiculous.

My point was that Vets had a higher percentage of problems then the civilian population, and thus may needed special assistance merging back into civilian life. Most vets probably do just fine, have no issues, and everything is great, but that is not the case for all of them. Given their military training and experience, we have an obligation to help them.

It's all there in Rambo - First Blood.

* Facepalm.

Rambo? Seriously?

First, the name of the movie is First Blood. Second while it is a serious movie as opposed to the ridiculousness of 2 and 3 (and 4 depending on who you talk to), you should have used The Deer Hunter or Taxi Driver if you were really wanted to use a movie there.

I'm sorry to disagree. First blood did a good job of showing how vets are sometimes treated upon their return and what can sometimes happen as a result.

There's a lot of cool things in Golarion, but it's always been a thing to cobble stuff out of more than a setting to play in, for me.

I have already seriously altered golarion.

In my opinion, Golarion starts with kingmaker and the PCS making their own kingdom, and moving on from there.

Violence and death are bummers. They are part of police officers' lives and the police officers accept that fact so that violence and death don't have to be part of most of our lives.

not seeing the connection here. The cop that shot the guy in SC is an example of paying the price for a bad decision, this death is met with an article on cops being killed in the line of duty and a note on how they take on violence and death so we don't have to?

Why did Charlie go back to cops in the 1920s and 1930s above? That makes no sense.

To answer the question posed in the topic, as any black man can tell you, "because they can."

Most people viewed the series ununfavorably. A major character was given a ridiculous death and replaced readily, and the alien race introduced seemed to fit poorly into the universe.

That's what makes them ALIEN in a Galaxy full of different species. And I think Chewbacca died the way he would have wanted to, fulfilling his life debt, and protecting Solo's children.

there's an unusual alien race, and then there's setting breaking concepts. These guys in the star wars universe made about as much sense as putting getter robo in the UC gundam universe.
