    Now, there’s been a second shooting. Only this time the perp WAS armed.

    The 300 lb kid said what are you going to do, shoot? after bum rushing the cop into the car and punching the guy in the face so hard it dislocated an eye, then turned around and was going away, only to be asked by the cop to stop. and the kid said what are you going to do and started back at the cop! “don’t shoot” with the hands up came from the partner in crime! And the media just rolled with it.

    You talk as if you were right there in the middle of it all. Were you? Or did you get all that information from the lamestream media?

    Maybe I – as german – don t see it right or get only the information about the worst scenarios.
    But most times I read or hear that your police used guns to stop someone, there was someone dead after that. I think most US Policemen should have much more experience in shooting as most german/european Policemen, because here you can be happy if you shoot 100 rounds in a year on the shooting range. (I know much policemen which only get 50 to 70 rounds training). It looks like US Policemen are much faster with their weapons than elsewhere. Can someone give me a link for a statistic on weapon use by policemen in US? In Germany we had 2011 85 times shooting against humans overall: 49 warning shoots and 36 aimed shoots with 15 injured and 6 death.

    Here’s a statistic for you, Germany:
    -
    “While the economic downturns of the last decade-and-a-half have taken their toll on the median income of all races and ethnic groups, blacks have been the hardest hit. By 2012, black median household income had fallen to 58.4 percent of white income, almost back to where it was in 1967 — 7.9 points below its level in 1999.”
    -
    It ain’t just in the worshipful treatment of weaponry that the US of A is out of sync with your county; ‘tis in support of basic humanity. How’s Ayn Rand selling over there?

    Lamestream does not have the doc report on the cop, lame stream is afraid of showing the strong arm robbery, lamestream was quick to lift up the gentle giant and demonize the cop. Lame stream would put on “eye witness” (that was the accomplish in the robbery) use what the accomplish said as a rally cry, but fail to talk about the YouTube that caught an Eye witness telling the truth about how the 300 lb guy turned back to the cop after laying the cop out. shoot, Lame stream does not even want the guy to be 6 foot 5 295lb they want him to be some kid waiting to have his 1st day in college. but he was this gentle giant, could not hurt a fly, how dare those other outlets show him robbing a store, strong arming a little guy, turning back around to pose and flex the little guy back down. why that just does not fit the hands up don’t shoot narrative that was carefully crafted for the likes of the race bait masters JJ and Al

    In the vein of Bill Cosby telling black people if they don’t want to be treated like trash, then don’t talk like trash, I’ll ax you a queshun I gots. I am not intimately familiar with the lilt of the English accent but I heard an interview with a person from England with the typical accent to the Midwestern American ear. It wasn’t until about 3.4 thought the hour long interview that it was brought up that the person was black. My point was, his diction, his annunciation, his word/verb/tense/plurality usage was proper and did not indicate his race. How many American black people can you hear and interview of and within a few sentences spoken ell their ethnicity? How many single language English speaking Chinese, Hispanic or other ethnicities could you pinpoint their ethnicity simply from hearing an interview, without seeing the person? By single language English speakers I mean someone who is not first generation and does not speak the native language of their ancestry. In fact I have a Vietnamese customer, mom and dad speak very broken English but the son it is his “native” language. He also speaks his parents;’ native language and until I heard him talk to them I never would have thought he was bi-lingual.
    I wonder how much of the problem with the black community is FROM the black community. I see this with whites too, in what I call “little boys,” or “Wannabe Gangstas.” They dress a certain way, they use certain body gestures, they talk a certain way, they walk a certain way and then they wonder why nobody wants to hire them work with them, help them, befriend them, respect them. Except of course for others who “are kept down by the man.” Be they black, white or purple, if you act in a socially defiant way why should society embrace you? Not all black people act like this or talk like this, but when they do, why should they be surprised when society at large responds to them in kind?

    If you decide you disagree with me, that is fine but please keep your replies civil, on point and considerate of ALL of my comment. I am not racist, I do not harbor any latent ill will towards any person due to anything except for demonstrated behavior. Everyone is worthy of respect and consideration regardless of gender, race, disability, social status, religion, political affiliation or profession until they demonstrate through word or deed that they are not worthy of said respect.

    Don’t walk like a duck, quack like a duck, and act like a duck and then complain when you are treated like a duck.

    You are, of course, correct in your analysis of why society rejects folk of those cultures. Neither do I see you as racist.


    But throughout your post is an unspoken message. If “those people” wish to get ahead, they must talk, walk, and dress the way “we” do. “We” are the norm here and “they” must conform to us if they wish to succeed.

    Either summed up my comment very nicely or you are insinuating I am a racist. I’ll just go with you summed up my comment. Thank you.

    “Either summed up my comment very nicely…”

    No racist stuff meant to be implied. i.e., if you look and smell like a Hell’s Angle in full regalia and you want a seat in a four star Michelin restaurant, you are probably not going to get one.

    A number of the peaceful protesters have been trying to stop the looting, with mixed success.

    He was there when it happened. Just like he was there in Iraq when it was perfectly peaceful under W. And he was there when Obama was born in Kenya.

    Point well taken. Seriously.
    But mikefive just above this comment summed it up nicely. Or think about this, you need a minor operation. Do you want a clean cut, well groomed person in a white coat (ie conform to the norm) or do you want a guy who looks like a biker with all the tattoos and piercings? It may not be fair, but that’s just the way it is.
