“Do the people of Ferguson know that if they went home, they wouldn’t get shot with tear gas? JUST GO HOME.
"Well he had four shots to the right arm before the shot in the head so I feel like the dude had ample warning but kept moving toward the cop. I would have put one between the running lights too if I were the cop."
"Boy?? A 6 foot 4 300lb dude is a boy? Who moments earlier robbed a store? Point being that he’s a violent thug who was probably not cooperating with police and wanted to get into an altercation. I highly doubt that cop went out that day looking for a black kid to shoot. He was a thug."
"I hate the whole black people are treated as second class citizen bullshit. Never seen it and I’ve been living for 28 years now. I’m not blind to the idea either but I’ve never seen it. This whole thing is a joke.”
What isn’t a joke is how sick these comments make me. I’m not surprised that these words are coming from ex-marines/military wives who see nothing wrong with TANKS being deployed and weapons being aimed at unarmed civilians. Militarization of small-town police forces, what could be wrong with that?! Also, to my knowledge, I don’t think any of these people even know a single black person let alone understand the ABSOLUTE RACISM THAT DEFINITELY PLAGUES THIS COUNTRY. Don’t want to get tear gassed? Stay home and obey your masters! Continue to be subjugated! IT’S THAT EASY!
You’ve “never seen this in all [your] 28 years?” Good for you, rich blonde white dude! In my 28 years I’ve never seen the moons of Saturn BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THEY DON’T EXIST.
This is like an all-male council discussing birth-control/women’s rights; a bunch of well-off white people shouldn’t be commenting about why they don’t think minorities are treated like second-class citizens.
