Looked almost accidental by the police. He should a holstered his gun instead of having where it could go off and kill somebody. The police looks incompetent.

The next train is going out of service. Do not board. Those who fail to see the need for proper grammar and spelling should wait on the tracks by the third rail.

Thank you.

Road in on? Second-grade spelling errors are no surprise from an Arkansas hillbilly. Go brush your tooth, Billy Bob.

Yes, but what is an ass chump? If you're calling me a chump, you should have inserted a comma before chump, not after; that makes it a comma splice, also know as a run-on sentence.

I suppose it's not too bad in a state where anyone with an education beyond third grade is as rare as a full set of teeth.

There was no need for even a taser. But at least there was a conviction.

John Barris attorney for the Grant family.

""Now, of course, we feel that the involuntary manslaughter conviction is better than no conviction at all," he said. "We do recognize and appreciate that there probably is some historical significance that I -- in my long history, being involved in police matters since 1979 and well over 30 homicides involving the police -- I've never had a case where an officer was convicted of any crime against an African-American male."

Annette Garcia was shot in the back at 500 ft by a Riverside sherrif on the Soboba reservation, nothing happened. RIP Oscar, Annette.

Here we go again....
All you good citizens complaining about a bad cop???
Who the F do you think keeps you safe? If it were not for cops, good and bad, these criminal thugs would be terrorizing all of us without remorse or a second thought. If this dirtbag would not have been out committing crimes in the first place he might be alive today to commit more crimes agains the good people of the world. This scum got what he deserved, whether or not it was an accidental shooting or an intended shooting.
Why don't all you complainers go walking around the nearest ghetto at night or even in the daytime and try minding your own business. See how far you get without getting assaulted, raped, stabbed, harassed, or shot. I dare you.
Finally, FBI statistics show that only 1 in every 11 crimes is stopped.
Now, go ahead and take that stroll down the "bad" part of town.....
Cops do not keep people safe, you are more likely to be killed by a cop than a criminal in every crime study shown. The "ghetto" as you put it exists because idiot cops like you don't live in the neighborhood you police and take the stance that you are somehow "different" or "special" from the neighborhoods you patrol. We are ALL CHRISTIANS, HUMAN BEINGS, and you are your brothers keeper. So save your sissy rant for the pulpit, cops don't protect and serve, they collect a government pension and do as little as possible. By the way, only a real sissy would talk about poor neighborhoods the way you do, as if rape and drug use isn't RAMPANT in white suburban areas. Ever been to a college party? Rape and drug central. So stop pointing your stereotyped sissy finger at poor or ethnic areas, white suburbia is filled with rapists and drug dealers too, cops just don't stop and frisk rich white kids bc their parents have good lawyers.

Perhaps you could cite some of "the many crime studies" that show we are more likely to be killed by a cop than by a criminal.

It has been my experience during a long life **(by the grace of God only)** that the only difference between a "good neighborhood" and a "ghetto is the people who inhabit a given neighborhood.

Because I am an ordinary worker **(middle)** class White person I have needed to stay one jump ahead of the Africans by occasionally moving to "better" parts of the city after the Africans begin moving in. My former neighborhoods have become so dangerous that I would never think of visiting there.

I have been shot, stabbed, robbed at knife-point, kicked and beaten senseless, robbed after being bludgeoned from behind with a blunt object and spat upon - to mention a few indignities I and my fellow Whites regularly suffer. Always, these events were perpetrated by Africans - never by the cops. You make a good point though, when you say that ever since the Government politicized the cops, it's hard to tell who the enemy is.

As a self professed Christian you are undoubtedly aware that the Lord was the first to institute the death penalty. This is the most fundamental of Christian law that the Lord designed for peaceful human interaction. Since the 60s 70s revolution we seem to have forgotten the way of peace. Perhaps rediscovering our Christian roots and applying the law will bring racial peace at last. Isn't it at least worth a try?
