    Anyone who saw the video knows that when this man was asked to get on the ground and he didn’t..a stun gun could have and should have been deployed to force him to the ground, simple solution. But when the police rushed him with physical violence, the scene became escalated to where a killing would be justified. Cops like this and actions from cops like this need to be weeded out of the police force nationwide.

    If officers where Black would it matter? Baffled gangs,violence and rape increase Black community no response. Co-dependency of society perpetuated by “Democrats, family sue deterring Blacks. Becoming police officers due, retaliation increase of gangs whom torment majority. Civil rights don’t make me vomit! True middle class Blacks achieve success, stress of paradox those with strive not right. Say everyone is racist another settlement are going use money to improved another victim. Concur there is racism from “White” mentality intimidation NAOP guilty why so many. Resigning due indictments!

      First off I’m baffled by ur inability to create a complete sentence let alone an intelligent argument. But I’ll try to explain this senseless murder to u anyway. Yes I would matter because murder is murder! If u and the rest of the country that don’t see the inequality of justice for black people society then get off ur ass and just go into a store and watch how blacks are stalked while Becky is tossing shit in her purse. Also the statistics of black crimes are largely skewed in the media because I for 1 have white friends with money and when little Jimmy shoplifts, rape women, murder folks, they are given the option to go home because the officers don’t want to “mess up their chances in life or blemishing their record”. Go to any state college and ask around about unreported rapes (colleges need to keep the numbers down so that Sarah’s parents will feel safe having her enrolled here). My suggestion to u would be, stop watching Fox News, pick up a book and for God sake, take an English class or 3.
