I was browsing YouTube vids and came across police brutality and a vid where black people were shot for just having wallets, cellphones, spatulas you know very dangerous items. The police claim to think it was a gun. In the vid a man is advising blacks to not have anything in their hands while police are around and in some cases play dead. I know people will say well blacks do the most crimes so its understandable. But I don't want to freakin die blc I have a candy bar in my hands. Also seeing how much the world hates us why can't we as black people get along. We really only have each other.

Here's the vid

My take is this. Never EVER put your hand in your pocket or ANYWHERE where they think a dangerous might be carried because if you do, they are going to suspect its a gun or dangerous and they WILL react IMMEDINTIELY. Police are trained to do this and they dont want their lives or anybodys lives to be threated. This happens ALL the time because people dont know how to ACT around law enforcement

Can you then tell us how to act. Is there a new written law as to how to do this?
Can you enlighten us on this, Madam!

Not ALL the items were pulled out of the pockets. SOME were remote controls, spatulas, candy bars etc. That IS ridiculous.

What is happening is america is prepping up for a police state.

There's a slew of police stories on TV.
The hype on terrorism
The fear instilled on americans
The Patriot Act
Obama signing into law the ability to arrest anyone

Add it all up and say hello to the new gastopo

A wm was watering his front yard at the same time the police got a call of a man welding a gun. They came upon John Q. Citizen, said drop it. When the white man turned around with the water hose in hand, they shot him dead.

The cop that shot the hand cuffed bm in the back got less time than M. Vick got for dog fighting.

My advice to sisters and brothers is the same as the OP. Drop anything, put ya hands in the air and don't move.

What 'm saying is we're moving to a police state

I was saying how people should never put their hand in their pocket while their in contact with police because they will react no matter what you are pulling out. Thats all Im saying and Im done.

This was Diablo (sic).

He was mentally impaired, a foreigner and couldn't speak english. He didn't understand and paid a dear price.

The racist aspectt was imparted in the OVER KILL. Bullet holes in a man's feet is OVER KILL.

What you are saying seems pretty obvious but they don't seem to get what you are saying.

I think that says more about them than you.

I mean, I've got a candy bar in my pocket so if I reach in and get it then the police man should know that it's a candy bar and not a gun even though he cannot see it and not shoot me....hmm....dangerous logic.

These events are NOT mistakes! These are racist blood thirsts who use their jobs to push a systematic agenda to decimate us.

The police force needs a revolution from within. But, I don't see that happening...so, the best WE can do is stay out the dumb sh!t and in the event that WE do incur drama from pigs...fcuk it...make bacon!!

That was over a decade ago and it still makes me sick. 41 shots? Did they stop shooting at some point and reload?

I think this song best captures my sentiments...

This is not an act of racism. It is the onslaught of the Nazi gastopo.

The Patriot Act has stripped all americans of our civil liberties and they are doing it piecemeal, a little at a time.

In the streets of DC, during broad day light the police pulled a bm out of his wheel chair and pounded his head into the pavement because, he was loud. IN A WHEEL CHAIR?

Out west, the police beat a homeless WHITE MAN to death for nothing.

Look at us, we're in "FEAR" of what might happen.

This is deliberately leading americans to be afraid of the police.

This is bigger than racism = FASCISM
