This is a miscarriage of justice. Anyone who shoots a cop should get the death penalty. This is just more racist bs! Does this law apply to whites and Asians too?

Hmmmm....where was all this outrage and indignation when blacks were being murdered by racist whites with total impunity? Not saying it is right nor do I cosign on their sentence being overturned because I don't know all the details and facts. But for generations blacks were shot, beaten, hung, burned and imprisoned falsely and there was none of the outrage we see here. Wonder why.....?

100% myth, you pseudo-intellectual maggot. Filthy black lazy simians have been killing, raping, pillaging, looting, robbing, assaulting, lying and cheating while living off the white man's achievements, luxuries and freedoms since the black scum originated. The only difference between yesterday and today is that the degenerate black cancerous primates are getting away with it under the protection of the liberal demonic laws! Hmmmm......what about that dumb-ass shithead!!! Go F yourself!!! Case closed.
