If someone had a bad educated, lived their whole life in the ghetto, and knew tons of people who died in crime related deaths or gone to prison, I can understand. But when you get these upper middle class college graduates who have traveled, drive a prius, shop at trader joe's, and wear khaki pants to work everyday and they still have these strange as hell world views, I just can't explain that.


fwiw i can't explain larping but that doesn't mean it's not real to other people.

Fuuma made a good point of the middle/upper middle class black experience, all that Bourdieu paid off.

I thought this was all addressed in season 1, episode 6 of the fresh prince of bel air...

Except these days Will would probably be dead for charging the officer when he goes spread eagle on the hood.

Yes.  Irrelevant though.  Once a lawyer, always a lawyer.  You'll all be against the wall when the revolution comes.

Lying on the ground beside his pickup, 19-year-old Dylan Noble has already been shot twice, but is still alive when a Fresno police officer fires a shot toward him. Fourteen seconds later, another shot rings out, according to a video of the fatal incident obtained Wednesday by The Bee.

Police Chief Jerry Dyer said Wednesday that officers believed Noble was about to shoot them during the deadly encounter June 25. But officers later learned that Noble was unarmed.

The video, shot by a witness and showing only the last two of four shots fired by officers, surfaced on the day Noble’s family and friends held a private funeral for him in Clovis and the family’s lawyers released a letter asking for an outside law enforcement agency such as the FBI or the state Attorney General’s Office to investigate the shooting.

Look at these brave officers executing a person laying on the ground unarmed.

Even if he was making "threatening motions" with his hands, he had already been shot twice and seemingly incapacitated, it would have been child's play to take him into custody at that point.

There are police body camera and maybe dashboard videos of the whole thing, which they'll release once the investigation is finished. But let's all make up our minds now instead!

So you're telling me you have an open mind to the thought the police were in the wrong here?

Yeah, and I have a nice bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.

They will only release if it vindicates them.

Do you really believe this?

You do know the tapes are in the hands of Loretta Lynch's DOJ.

Minneapolis cops leave security posts at Lynx game over shirts - members of the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx wore T-shirts seeking change following the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling-The black warmup shirts worn said "Change Starts With Us -- Justice and Accountability" on the front.

 

"I commend them for it," Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Minneapolis Police Federation said, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

 

I guess cops can have tributes and public events for their dead, but not those whom are killed by cops; it's okay to leave your post and go home.
