That video was sickening.This has to be institutional.
Even with black officers in the force it seems like there is no limit to black killings
Joe just a question has trump done the same to USA as Modi has done to India?That video was sickening.
It reminded me of an incident from fifty years ago.
A patrol was out at night in Calcutta, during the height of the Naxalite troubles. For those of you who came into the world recently, there was a time when a couple of hundred policemen were killed in Calcutta by the Naxalites, and there was a state of open warfare, with no-go zones where policemen could not go.
This patrol had the DC North, an elderly man within months of retirement, and two thana OCs, along with perhaps a dozen men. All were armed (with side-arms; muskets - not rifles, the old practice was for police not to carry rifles within cities for fear of ricochet damage - for the constables, revolvers for the officers).
They found two young boys out in the open. This was unusual, because in those nightmare years, nobody went out at night. Before anyone knew what was going on, the DC, who had already drawn his gun and was waving it around in a state of total panic, opened fire.
One of the OCs screamed at him and stuck his hand out, and got a bullet through the palm for his pains.
The two boys died, riddled with bullets.
I thought that was the core of his strategy - to divide.Joe just a question has trump done the same to USA as Modi has done to India?
A larger divide between red and blue states, whites and colored.
just a thought
I am doing just fine Joe, more lurking than participating, but it makes for a more peaceful forum.You are such a piece of work!
How've you been?
Oh pardon me. Please tell me the part where the right to pass out in a drivethru with a loaded gun on your lap is enshrined in the law. I must've missed that!Oh wow how dare he exercise his constitutional rights! He's 3/5ths of a pe...oh nvm it's not 1852 anymore!
Someone needs to explain de-escalation to US law enforcement. No one in immediate danger. Individual passed out in a drive through. If they thought it was too risky to remove the gun then they could have flattened the tires and tried megaphones or other means from a distance to try and wake him up.
