    Just another case of renegade racist white cops doing everything they can to keep the black man down...oh, wait. Never mind.

    You see thats part of the problem my friend. This is clearly spades, but we cannot call it such.

    The case looks real bad for the cops. The body camera footage is apparently damning. Terribly sad for the poor young kid. It wasn't his fault his dad was a moron. Regardless, the cops should fry if they are found guilty. There has to be a way for law enforcement to identify scumbags within their ranks and have them removed.

    If the cops had been white and this was a 6 year old black kid the national guard would have already been called in.

    It appears that they will not though Ed. IMO Leo has went too far defending their own to keep form tarnishing the reputation. Now in the age of video everywhere people are starting to see that the percentage of scumbag/hall monitor mentality Leo is greater than we feared.

    When organizations force PD's to lower their standards or chose recruits that fill a particular column on a spread sheet, rather than the best person for the job, the result is people getting guns and badges that have no business doing so.

    This is the truest statement that can be said about the situation. Give the jobs to the most qualified, not a paticular skin color to cover some sort of ethnic "quota".

    I have a few relatives who are LEOs. They've been telling me the police are being federalized everywhere and essentially trained to "shoot first, ask questions later" reinforced with the idea of "pain compliance" (don't do what they say, then they'll hurt you). They're sick of the young morons, one of their words, they're bringing into the police force...because they have no regard for Constitutional rights. And most of the "new ones" seem afraid of their own shadows and are too quick on the triggers. One of them is nearing retirement and can't wait to get out.

    Heard nearly that same statement this past week.

    Apparently there are organizations pushing that departments are not diversified enough. My understanding is that there is a state exam that must be passed to be considered for LEO.

    Isn't it amazing how all these news stories about black police officers killing white "offenders" almost NEVER mention race? Yet when it's the other way around, that's about all they do report.

    Maybe it's just me but even if it is, I'm damn sick of it.

    Police kill more whites than blacks, but minority deaths generate more outrage
