I agree to much is happening to minority people and there is no justice involved. And the only way it is unless you get the NAACP involved. I'm getting tired of seeing innocent black people die for nothing. 22 year old man was shot 19 times by 4 police officers, he was just reaching to get his wallet. 19 times what happened to shot once not 4 times a piece. Then a young man getting ready to get married and gets shot over 50 times by 4 police officers the day before his wedding and for what being black. There is never reparations for this. This man will never get to marry his soul mate because his life was taken from him. For being black. How was wrong is that. Whats going on do we have the Klan working in our justice facilities. I feel that i am still in the 50's but i have no Martin Luther King Jr. here to fight this battle. Too much and enough is enough.

WEll if you pay attention to the news another thug has shot four police officers over a traffic violation. Keep up the racist remarks. I would gladly give to the families of these officers over some wanna B'thug. Only YOU have control over what happens in your community. If you don't mind the drugs and robberies then live with the possibility of your pimp getting shot.
Why don't your communities police the area for themselves?

Non of us can judge what the cops did because none of us were there when it happened. If they did this out of racism, then they will pay eternally. If they did it in self defense, then I hope they get rewarded instead of jail.
