    Viewing the directed advertising, mine shows 19 easy tomato dinners with Hunt’s canned tomatoes.

    This is easily seen when a white group takes over a park verses a woman who changes lanes without a turn signal. When you see the videos of white drivers yelling at cops verses black kids being shot for crossing the street against the light. If you don’t see it – you are being handled by a lil white kitten.

    There are a big pile of videos showing cops shooting unarmed people.

    is that why that cleveland cop shot and killed a 12 year old who had a toy gun? is that why that charlotte copy had to fire 12 bullets into a guy who crawled out of his crashed vehicle? Is that why that charleston cop shot that guy in the back and planted a weapon on his dead body? is that why in Oklahoma, cops will do civil forfeiture of anyone, take money, cash, etc…and is that why cops will shoot and kill your dog when they show up at a residence? and, is that why swat tossed a flash bang into a playpen, injuring a 1 year old.

    Going with the reasoned argument again, I see. What do you disagree with here? Start with that. What you’ve got so far is a six-word indicator of a mind closed to even discussing the evidence.

    sense trouble ahead in the next couple decades …



    “Minorities accounted for 93.3% of the nation’s population growth from April 1, 2010 (Census day) to July 1, 2011, according to Census Bureau data released today. Of the total population growth of 2.8 million during that period, the total increase for non-Hispanic whites was only 192,000.”

    Less than 30 seconds and the officer decided Tamir Rice was a threat.
    Having said that, there are those in the Black Lives Matter movement that are feeding into the Conservative stance that they only want confrontation.
    Calling for resignations and firings of prosecutors shows a lack of understanding of the grand jury process. In Cleveland they want transcripts released, and are suing, even though Ohio law says those transcripts can’t be released. (A flaw in the system).
    Shutting down a candidate like Bernie Sanders at a speech isn’t fostering a dialogue, nor is it getting any message across other than the arrogance of WE WILL BE HEARD! They are no better than Joe Wilson, who shouted YOU LIE at Obama during his State of the Union several years ago.

    And, of course, NONE of them were doing anything wrong at all, right?

    @agrestic

    A really good example of going extremely overboard. Are there bad cops, yes. Are they all bad, no. Are there bad people, yes. Are their good people that get caught in a bad situation completely innocently? Not nearly as often as is being depicted. Are there bad people out to get anyone they can? Yes, More often than most would like to admit. Quit lumping all people into lumps of extreme overboard depictions. Enough discussion.

    @sueamarlucan

    Why “enough discussion”? Isn’t that doing what you so often complain about—people apparently trying to shut down anyone who disagrees with them?


    In any case, I would argue that comics are meant to engage in hyperbole to make their point. But apparently this one failed to do that, at least for you—though I must say it’s actually pretty clear. The point of this particular comic is not that there are bad cops (which there are). It’s that any cop who kills someone starts out with the extreme benefit of the doubt—and “he feared for his life” has become a rote defense even when a cop is on video shooting someone running away from them in the back. And way more often than not, they get away with it. (Exhibit A: Tamir Rice.) Meanwhile, merely looking or sounding a certain way is often enough to get young black and brown men arrested, brutalized, and even killed, because young black and brown men (and, it seems, increasingly also women) are seen by so many as “scary”.
