Critics say there’s a reason for the discrepancy in media coverage: race. Mr. Brown was black and the officer who shot him was white. Mr. Taylor wasn’t black — he’s been described as white and Hispanic — and the officer who shot him Aug. 11 outside a 7-Eleven in South Salt Lake wasn’t white.
The perceived double standard is fueling resentment and talk of double standards on conservative talk radio and social media, where the website Twitchy has compiled a list of Twitter comments asking why Mr. Brown’s death has been front-page news for weeks while Mr. Taylor’s was a footnote at best.

Or hispanic. But nice spin bro
Taylor's brother, Jerrail Taylor, raised issues last week about racial profiling. He said his brother was Hispanic.

A viable solution.  I'll be real forthcoming and give an honest opinion.  I think the criteria by which police officers are chosen has a lot to do with it.  Police work attracts a lot of authoritarian types, of all races.  Many of them have a military background and that can effect the way they see the world and in turn how they behave towards others.  One of my first suggestions would be not to measure previous military experience to heavily in hiring police officers.

lol this was actually what i was going to say. Police selection, their extreme responsibility, and training could improve.

My point is that both sides need to start looking at each other as people not just cops and thugs.  The community must understand that officers see some real shit night after night and overtime their tolerance goes down.  The police have to realize that not all blacks are thugs.

i didnt see this post earlier,,,but i totally agree

There must be trust built but the responsibility for building that trust isn't the sole responsible of the police.  You're  dismissing the position of law enforcement to quickly.   One solution is to only have black police officers serve black communities and white officers serve white communities but I honestly don't think that would improve condition very much.

i think more real accountability is the start. Its not about "black cops and white cops" There are really good white cops and bad black cops and vice versa. But there just needs to be more GOOD COPS and top down accountability. Like cops actually being held to the same standards they hold the community they patrol. When 6 officers (of all races) beat to death a homeless man on camera, and get off scott free, its instills distrust of police and the system as a whole

What sort of dialogue?   Who would represent both sides? 

Im trying to be the voice of reason and speak from the POV of someone that lived in it for most of my life.

In many innercities, the police have earned their distrust because of a myriad of reasons.

Now, im opposed to sharpton and the other baiters and have been extremely outspoken about them.
But the view of the innercity that you have and its structre is different from the actual thing. Ill just chalk it up to you not being a part of it and seeing it first hand.

Fear of ones safety puts one on high alert.  Why don't the officers and the community engage in an honest dialogue?  Not a monologue where the community spends the entire time vilifying the police but a dialogue where both sides acknowledge they both have problems and find a reasonable solution.
        Fear (as you stated)  being the initial feeling towards the people they are ordered to protect will result in rash, rushed and predetermined actions in a situation, that couldve have had a different outcome had cooler heads prevailed.
       As far as dialoge? Until there is a mutual trust from both sides, talks between the sides wont have productive talks....but listen to how we talk about it..."the two sides" ...the Us vs Them ....Its warrented because throughout these communities histories, the police (ones held to a higher standard and paid to uphold the law and protect) have often worked opposite to their duties to the detriment of the same people they are sworn to protect. Alot of these sentiments towards are from baby boomers that are still old enough to remember water cannons and german shepherds

It's common sense.  If you are in a high crime area you're going to be on higher alert. 

High alert and Fear, they are not equals.

thats common sense
11  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Black man telling it like it is. At the same timeslapping the snot out of black on: Today at 09:03:52 AM
Don't you think the police have a real fear of the people as well and good reason for their fear and apprehension?  It's a two way street.


read that to yourself again slowly bro....


Police have a real fear of "The People"..............in general............as a whole............that they are supposed to protect.

Can you see the issue with that?

To address the vid. I totally understand what he is trying to get across, but its not my experience.

I grew up on 78th and Normandie. 2 Blocks from ground zero of the 1992 LA riots. I grew up in the heart of it. Went to Washington High, which is one of the toughest schools in the city. And yeah i had my fears of being approached by the street element. But to be totally honest, i was equally afraid of the police and its because of what i saw happening. It was common knowledge that LA Co. Sherriffs would beat the living shit out of you (and not get caught) if you "back talked" them. It was a running joke in LA on how you would get picked up in one neighborhood and get dropped off in another one. In torrance where my office is located, they had a police code when they would see a black driving through their fair city, NIT...Ni66er in Torrance. I know that its sometimes hard for you guys to grasp because you havent experienced it and foreign to you. But there is a real fear of police. Shit, 333386, you didnt even know of the Iran Contra drugs shit that happened to south central LA. Just as i dont know the commings and goings on Bronx from your POV, son you dont know innercity living as a black/latino.

See this gets me, We "say" were Americans and want to protect the constitution but then we praise the total violation of the 4th Ammendment. And think the ends justify the means. Thats the exact shit that made our forfathers create this nation. Ends Dont Justify the Means. We have a set of laws and rights that cant be violated.

Amazing

An article saying Allen Iverson, the ex-Philadelphia 76ers great, was spotted “begging for change outside [of] Atlanta’s Lenox Mall” is fake.

The bogus report was posted on The News Nerd, a self-described “satirical” website.

“Troubled former NBA basketball player Allen Iverson was seen begging for change outside of Lenox Mall in Atlanta. Several mall patrons reported a man with a disheveled appearance harassing them for change,” it reads. “When security arrived, they were shocked to see it was none other than basketball legend Allen Iverson. Iverson was asked to leave the premises by mall security.”

According to a disclaimer, the website doesn’t post real news and shouldn’t be taken seriously. “The stories posted on TheNewsNerd are for entertainment purposes only. The stories may mimic articles found in the headlines, but rest assured they are purely satirical,” it says at the bottom of each page.

A number of people apparently believed the Iverson hoax. It was shared widely on Facebook–with thousands of “likes.”

“This is so sad and hard to take in. He has always been my favorite player and idol. What happened? Someone needs to help him get back on his feet. Why doesn’t the 76′ers help him. They have plenty of money! My heart goes out to him,” one person wrote in the News Nerd’s comments section

Ok guys, So i see a lot of..."ni66er.s" kill each other every day but when a cop does it you want to be all up in arms"
And i can see where your confusion is because i thought the same thing. Then i talked to some old heads and the explained it like this. The black on black violence is a serious issue and gets addressed. Usually the killer is found and they go to jail. Its not as if justice isnt served.

When a cop shoots a black man a couple of factors are at play. 1. Cop shouldnt be judge, jury and excecutioner. Also this is the guy that is supposed to protect you not shoot when rattled. Yes black on black violence is a problem. But police killing unrmed blacks is a well documented problem aswell.

Now i also read something like "not a peep from the peanut gallery when a black kills a black".. First of, I dont read about the individual murders and they arent discussed in the news in great detail as when a sworn officer/ authority figure does it. Secondly, I myself spend many many hours teaching black and hispanic youth the other options and the possibilities out side of gang life. Now if you arent really in it, and you can look at if from the sideline, you will say, "oh thats bullshit, all they have to do is get a job". And its correct in a sense, but the truth is, They seriously think they have zero options and its reinforced every day. But thats a discussion for a different time.

So basically, yes the black on black crime is a serious problem that is attempted to be addressed in house. But when its COP on black, its almost like, the one we should be able to go to for protection is the one killing us and they have the law and judicial system on their side. Some probably wont understand what im saying, but im sure a few will...

time for work

Until the threat is eliminated, as far as I know. Big dude, plenty of adrenaline, small caliber, two might not do the job. Perhaps Agnostic can clarify.

Then Ron can confirm his clarification.

is there are a thing called "Proper Esclation of force"

I asked because a cop told me that regarding this other kid that just got killed named Ezell Ford by the cops the other day here
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Michael Brown - Discuss the facts and the truth on: August 18, 2014, 10:48:28 AM

 you fire until the person is no longer a threat. 

did not know that. I assumed (my fault) that you shoot to injure.
