    Well Scotty when the black population is like 14% and the white population is like 80% what does that do to your numbers?
    If you did it as a representation of the population, I think you might have a different outlook.

    A few more things.
    I strongly support the good officers out there doing their duty. They should be respected and honored.

    The police that stood by as this happened are not good officers and should face prosecution as well.

    The blue wall of silence should be used as a backdrop for a firing squad. These cops bring shame to the uniform.

    Any black persons participating in the riots and looting just prove the racist correct. No excuses. Dr. King showed us a better way.

    Sorry for the rant.

    I heard that the riots were a response to the tear gas and riot gear. The riots came after the overreaction by police.

    I'm saving my judgement either way until the facts come out ...I've seen plenty of bad behavior from both sides of this issue in the past .

    I get the media bias and all that. I get how blacks attack whites etc, and it gets little if any coverage, but THIS CASE? Is messed up man! They just flat out snuffed that guy out. Cold blooded murder. Badge or no badge, you don’t have the right.

    And just to prove I’m not an extremist, the other recent case of the father and son in the pick up that shot “the jogger” in that case I’m not so sure that was murder. I think the young man went after his shotgun was trying to take it from him. Manslaughter MAYBE! But this case in Minnesota? Unquestionably was murder.

    IDK......1 dude, 4 cops. Dude is on the ground with his hands behind him, cop has his knee on his neck, dude is shouting that he can't breathe.

    Pretty much sums it up for me.

    Nope. Same outlook.
    14% of the population commits the majority of crime. Therefore more negative interactions with police as a segment of our population..
    Drop the victim mentally and address the underlying cultural problems so all people can excel.

    No matter what the man's past record shows and even if he did resist arrest he didn't deserve to be killed. All 4 of those cops should be prosecuted.
