People killed by police, 2015. 293 and counting.

Cop v. Black Guy

a whole lot of cops versus predominantly-black people. Also, one golden retriever.

“It is hard to think of the gravely injured boy and the aloof officers who’d done the deed but withheld their help, and not reach a white-hot level of righteous indignation.

“They’d say they saw you spat on the sidewalk, so they got to run your name. They pat you down, say some slick comments. That’s the kind of thing happening less – less in the last two weeks, and less overall since de Blasio came in.

IED goes off outside NAACP offices in Colorado Springs. Not okay.

“They didn’t give us no warning. They just started shooting. There’s babies in the street.

Oklahoma police chief is shot four times…and there are no charges filed, no arrest made. Wait, there’s no public outcry? No political uproar from the right, defending this brave officer of the law who got seriously injured by some violent thug who…oh, hey, guess the race of the cop. And guess the race of the shooter.

New York police officer holds teenagers at gunpoint over a snowball fight. (This time the cop is white again. But you knew that.)

Black woman suspected of shoplifting at Wal-Mart, gets shot and killed; white woman convicted of $1644 of merchandise from Saks, gets five days of community service.

“It seems the officer is lucky that he didn’t have a documented interest in rap music.
