    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.

    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?

    @Al S.

    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

    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.

    The toon says it very well. Well done, Mr. Heller.

    “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.

    You are right on the money.

    um, I am talking about the before account of the guy who helped rob the store, compared with the autopsy, No hands up, none in the back. I am talking about the account of the cop, that is backed up by a you tube of a person right there, right at the time, the guy did not know he was being recorded, just telling it, and it backs up the cop who stated the guy came at him. also the kid naritive was doing nothing wrong? then how did the cop get his head hit so hard it turned an eyeball sideways. These are all facts you can get anywhere.
    It is the lame stream liberal racist media do you get the white cop shots un armed black kid story/spin.

    Indeed; that’s the way it is.

    But awareness of stereotyping tends to diminish it.
