Pretty much. Police brutality is like a crime of opportunity that seeks out and target a weakness, then strike. Yes, for sure, non whites, even black cops, often target fellow blacks.
I disagree with cactus, however, that police target black communities because that's where the street crime is. Black communities are often targeted by police because that's where they're least likely to be held accountable no matter what crimes they go in and commit in black communities. They don't even bother to lie very well, either. Because they know whatever they say will be accepted at face value.
correction in 5:10 post: black community set up for doom. Not west. My computer tries to automatically place the word it thinks I want to use, and I don't know hoiw to dissbke the feature.'
Key word, lil timbreezie--- police shooting of blacks "reported to FBI" Did you know, police reporting anything to FBI is voluntary?
Another 2013 study came up with a different observation: "every 28 hours an unarmed black person is shot by a cop, vigilante or security guard"
adolpoh, police actions in primarily black communities have served as triggers to much of the violence that have taken place in those communities.
One of these days I may tell the story, may even write a book, about the dying C.I.(confidential informant) who had a lot to say about things he was allowed to commit while operating as a C.I. for many L.E. agencies across the nation before he died. Since he was dying anyway, guess he felt the need to "clear his conscious?" :¿
Without even they realizing it, the black community was already being west up for doom the moment the term gentrification started to circulate,
Another thing for all those armchair right wing nut politicians and their right wing nut followers screaming for the president to ban traveling from west Africa to the U.S. Banning travel would not have worked, and may even created a situation where Ebola coulld have an even greater chance of entering and infecting more of the american population. The reason for that is people traveling from west Africa could easily travel into countries where there are no travel restrictions. If infected already, they could pass that infection on to others of the country they traveled infecting other, and that newly infected person,entering america would not have been screened for the virus because that country would not be on the list of banned travel countries. Hence, entering the U.S. unchecked and bypassing screening because they're not from West Africa.
timbreezybob not to say it doesn't or hasn't rarely happened, but how often does an unarmed white dude been gunned in the streets of america at the hands of cops? It's like cops are on some collective hunting spree marathon all across this nation to kill as many young blacks as possible, especially young black males. It's become a national crisis and epidemic in America for a young black to cross paths with a cop. It's the American Ebola crisis with guns. Any other country carrying out such humanndighs violations against their america would have gone to war and woukd have dropped a few bombs. It's a national tragedy and international shame that these injustices are not only still taking place at the hands of cops, but have escalated. Even as america points out it's diversity and quickly points out injustices committed in other countries against that countries own people, america refuse to acknowledge its own hypocrisy and double standards on human rights violations against a targeted segment of its population.
Oops! Judy Walton, not Watson. Sorry! But the truth is Ms. Walton is the true essence of professional investigative journalism. To report the news without fear or favor. Far too many reporters and journalist have forgotten that lil motto.
inquire, regarding your 12:51 & 12:52 pm post.
Couldn't agree with you more. And most of the ones caught in voter fraud were republicans. So their excuse for voter ID actually backfired on them. In June of this year a Scott walker supporter was charged with 13 counts of voter fraud in a Milwaukee County court.
No, soggydiaper-who-whines-a-lot. You haven't proven I lied about anything. You've only posted your personal opinion that I lied. As for the topic at hand? You're the one on the personal attack against Judy Watson for doing what any investigative reporter is suppose to do. You really are a mental case if you can't even comprehend what you write.
Your personal attacks come across as fearful of something in your own history that might come to light. hmmmmmmmmm!
soggydiaper I've never attacked anyone for disagreeing with me. I've only responded in kind when I've been personally attacked by mental midgets such as yourself trying to pass as intellectuals.
You're the one who always go into your defensive tirades and rabid rages when anyone dare post the truth. Especially when the truth about how America has allowed its police force to morph into nothing short of death squads masquerading as peace officers supposedly serving 'n protecting the public.
