You must be the same one that believes the liberal media lies and BS they feed you too right?

I agree about the liberals destroying what they strive to protect. The protesters are both white and black. However, the NC governor has been and always will be a true Republican. He was Charlotte's mayor for years. Also, the chief police is black and does not tolerate these riots and looting. Tired of things being about race. After all, it was a black cop who shot this suspect.

He could use the word that he means, but why use that when you can use the conservative's latest dog whistle Southern Strategy language favorite word, "Thugs."

The sentence stopped at the word "Thugs."
For that to be such a dog whistle, you seem to be the only one barking.

“After watching the videos,” said Justin Bamberg, an attorney for Scott’s relatives, “the family again has more questions than answers.”

Bamberg said the videos, from dashboard and body cameras worn by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers, showed Scott getting out of his vehicle when ordered to by officers.

Scott’s demeanor was calm and nonaggressive, said Bamberg, who called upon CMPD to release the videos publicly in the name of transparency.

“While police did give him several commands,” the attorney said, “he did not aggressively approach them or raise his hands at members of law enforcement at any time.”


Bamberg echoed the observation of police who also examined the footage – that it was impossible to see whether Scott was holding a weapon, or anything else, in his hands.

Scott’s hands were by his side, Bamberg said, and he was walking slowly backward when shot.

A thug to me is a little punk who commits a crime without any remorse after. This fits a lot of people. Anyone who thinks that the word thug is a euphemism for "N word" is an ignorant racist.

It happens too frequently - whether a black or white assailant or a black or white cop. The bullet has the same effect whether the shooter is sane or crazy or a criminal or an out-of-control drunk. You can find dozens of such videos on YouTube.
