    This is one of the sadder commentaries on the issue.

    How can people be so blind to look at things as BLACK AND WHITE ONLY? (no pun intended). There are good cops and there are bad cops, there are a lot of good black people and some bad black people….now put them in a box and mix them up….sit back and watch what happens.

    Here… I’ll explain it to you. The man on the cell phone in this cartoon is of negroid descent. He is worried that cops might harm or kill him if he’s found sitting in a stalled vehicle along one of America’s byways. The likelihood of being harmed or killed by America’s police for the suspicious activity of driving while black is a very real threat to these people. White people stand a much better chance of living another day after interacting with police… this is a true reality. Cops kill kids playing with toys, they’ll kill your dog if it runs up wagging its tail, and they’ll kill your Grandpa because he can’t find his meds. Do you live in the US? If not, then you may not be aware of these facts.

    Phil Hands, the political cartoonist for the Wisconsin State Journal, today had a strip showing Officer Friendly bending over to ask a small black boy what he wanted to be when he grew up. The kid’s hands are in the air, and he answers simply “Alive!”
     
    Sad commentary, indeed.

    How not to get shot by a cop 101

    Do not yell rant or cuss at a cop when they stop you
    Do not fight
    Do not pull the gun out even if it is just a bb gun

    Just because you have your hands up does not mean you can walk back to your car and try to get in it or reach in your pocket

    Standard procedure is to spread your hands and legs and put you hands on the car. Supposedly then you can’t reach through a closed window, or produce your papers (please) as ordered or alleged, and they may then kill you if you register sufficiently high on the van Lauchen scale of human skin color (0 alibino, to 32 with anything in double digits qualifying).

    There was a taser in the process of being used. The woman, who had her pistol pulled, shot and killed the guy. They never let the taser do it’s thing. Logically explain why the man had to die.

    He should not worry about the cops. All he has to do is to answer what the cop asks, do what he tells him to do and not turn his back and walk away, or reach for the back seat.

    If AAA gets there first he’ll get a tow to the garage. If the cops get there first he’ll get a ride to the morgue. The police have shot a much higher percentage of unarmed black men. He is right to be afraid, Driving While Black is still an executable offence in this country.

    That’s nice and good for white people. When you’re black, you can be shot just for telling a cop you have a gun (even if it’s not in your hands).

    Meanwhile, a white woman who opened fire on civilian cars and led police on a chase got talked down and arrested peacefully.

    Hell, there’s been so many this month I’m not even sure which needless killing you’re talking about.
