    The London Economist has a nice article about Ferguson and the IS. The question is, ‘Why would someone provoke a better armed opponent?’ and The Economist sees strong parallels between what happened in Ferguson and what’s happening in the Middle East.

    This is exactly the problem with the cartoon. To tell black youths that the police are looking for excuses to brutalize them is to tell a vile lie that would trap them in a world of crippling paranoia and distrust. There are a lot of good criticisms of the police – and a lot of ways to do it. This, on the other hand, is lazy and irresponsible cartoon that is unworthy of the attention it receives.

    Perhaps that is cash on the ground. Maybe he was trying to bribe the cop. Not a reason to shoot, but he should be arrested.

    Walking, not driving, the beat, exposed as the cop with a face, and personality, is still the best way to communicate, and do good law enforcement. It was notable that with the advent of cops in “cruisers” started to divide the cops from the citizenry, years ago. All the hiding of the person in the uniform just made the divide worse.


    Even in “riot control” or demonstrations, when the folks in the crowd can see that the “enforcer” is another human being, it’s much LESS likely to foment violence. From my day, an example was the photo of the gal putting a flower in the barrel of an M14 at a peace rally decades ago. It made BOTH sides “human”.

    Cop recruitment is tough… they need a few toys to get people interested. The forces have been using that ploy for years.

    Anyone who isn’t living in a bubble realizes that some cops are looking for an excuse to brutalize black kids.

    I’ll leave it to you to Google the stats, but basically if you are an unarmed person shot by cops, it’s nearly certain that you’re a black man under the age of 30.

    Maybe it’s racism, maybe it’s just the savvy recognition that shooting & killing a young white man is more likely to get lawyers on your case.

    To protect and to serve, more or less.
    I say we allow our prejudice to extend to all police officers and taint their actions with a character that they may not have on their own when viewed through clear reason.
