In Ohio a 16 year old black girl shot and killed by a cop. Afterwards onlookers filmed one of the cops shouting "blue lives matter". That looks great doesn't it?
have you followed this entire story?
Of course he didn't. Much like rossi who will tell you there was no knife, or the cops planted it or told the 15 year old that was shot to take it then the cop blew her away for being black in public.
This cop will lose their job of course because the court of public opinion has already convicted them.
The girl who was shot will be portrayed as a mostly unarmed honors student with a brilliant future ahead of her, stable home life and no prior instances for her to be brought to the attention of law enforcement.
Cop haters and BLM and the rest of the nitwit crowd will say that in the split second the officer had to make a decision before the female in pink was stabbed and possibly killed he should have tazed her, or talked to her nicely and asked her to drop the knife, which the officer was probably doing anyway. Or maybe time could have been taken to call in some crisis intervention people to talk to her and make her stop.
And had the officer not fired at the knife wielding woman and the woman in pink was killed instead the cop would have been roasted as well.
No win situation. And now Columbus will burn.
Oh yeah and of course this would not have happened it the woman wielding the knife was caucasian. Guaranteed somebody is going to say those words.
Do the job for a day, the pass judgement.
Funny story- last week it happened in my cousin's neighborhood. She called the cops. The drugged out knife wielding daughter from across the street was taken into custody and he goofball mother wasn't harmed.
I'm not saying it was race that made the difference, but different cop, different race different ending. Lots of variables at play.
It would be interesting to find out if when the cops showed up and asked the knife wielding crack whore to drop the knife if she simply just complied or whether the mother was a millisecond away from being stabbed.
Obviously it happens, a caucasian suspect being shot by LOE's, likely even a black officer shooting some poor mostly unarmed white boy, though we never here about it, but I'm wondering in a serious way why African Americans seemingly always choose to disregard an officer's request to drop the weapon, or to resist being handcuffed and put in the back of a cruiser to the point where a level of force must be used that leads to tragedy.
I realize of course that many of these individuals are coming into contact with law enforcement by their own felonious actions of some sort on their part, not something as simple as not washing their hands when they use the restroom of the neighborhood bodega they intend to rob in the future and that blacks feel like targets to the cops but is there more? Is it a lower intelligence thing(not being a dumbass but a serious query.
Is it genetic? Gangs, peer pressure to get into serious shit, less than ideal childhoods, etc, etc. If black people are fearful of cops then to me if you comply with what they are asking you to do you might get arrested but you 100% less likely to die.
If a cop approaches me I'm not running, not going to smart mouth them and no cop is ever going to have to say to me drop the weapon unless they happen to come upon me in a public restroom and they mistake my dick for a weapon. Could happen. And yes I'm white but the fact remains that in most if not all of the cases over the last few years of cop shoots and kills mostly unarmed black man who was just chilling the victim would be alive had they not done something stupid. George Floyd who wasn't claustrophobic in his own vehicle suddenly developed the affliction when attempting to be put in the back of a cruiser. Had he not been methed up and complied there would have been no Derek Chauvin trial. Not absolving him completely but do think the charges he was convicted on are excessive, given all the circumstances.
Definitely there are bad cops out there, or at least some very over zealous ones who've watched to much tv. Same can be said for any profession though you aren't likely to be shot by your plumber.
Cops, like health care workers and firemen and others have thankless jobs where in many cases they have a split second to react to a situation and hesitation might mean they or an innocent pays with their lives. Officers don't get to pick and choose the calls they respond to and shouldn't be expected to wait to see if they get killed first before reacting to a situation.
I was raised and have always felt that people are responsible for their actions, regardless of circumstances. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
This thread was great till Rossi posted that AA ruined it.
