It's the social media!

Yet ANOTHER black person trying to disarm and kill a white police officer. when will BLACKS clean up their act and stop their culture from being an incubator for killer thugs?? When will the black community stop all this anti-white racist crap like we saw in the Trayvon case? They didn't even know the facts--which obviously don't matter to them. But the fact remains that blacks commit most of the violent crime in America and probably half of the drug trafficking--which leads to violent crime. If they'd stop that behavior, we wouldn't need so many police officers!

Force continunm?? Whatever..You can't use that new age philisophy. You got a robbery thug, you stick your .38 in their face and get em on the ground, if they come at you--shoot em..

Your right Lisa.
" BUT "
The only way this, is going to work is. The Good law biding black people, say enough is enough. And get on these thugs. Bill Cosby has the solution. Have him head it.

Lisa, since you want to go there, do you have statistics about black people killing white Officers? You interject race into this thread and talk about "this anti-white racist crap" yet continue to group an entire race of people together and then complain about them and that they need to clean up their act. Where are your statistics of black people killing white Officers? What are the numbers? I hope this is just not another opportunity to vent about black people. Your response is the reason there is this "anti-white racist crap" and unless you can show us the statistics that show black people killing white Officers more than white people killing white Officers (not just what the media presents), I will consider you yet ANOTHER person reacting to what is presented to you by the media...just like the black folks in the Trayvon Martin case.

What this is, is a criminal thing not a black or white thing. The suspect was black yes but the important thing is he chose to assault the officer he started it not the officer. If he had not assaulted the cop it would have been a simple contact over and done. Don't racialize this criminals aren't black or white they are just criminals
