Allow me to refute that as well.

Deflecting, reaching, excuses all in one post. Why is he trying to assassinate the characters of the victims? There's so many fallacies in his arguments it's not even funny. Please don't be biased, Waldo.

A Hopkins medical student has a lot to lose. Those with a lot to lose will steer clear, even if they sympathize, to reduce their vulnerability. Fundamentally good people have often stood by in the face of injustice to protect themselves. Have you ever been to the ghetto surrounding Hopkins? The poverty is breath-taking.

You offer opinion of his intentions of making those posts. That's not the same as actually addressing what was posted. If what he said was factually incorrect, it's easy enough to point that out. If instead, it's actually true but not liked, then of course it's much more difficult to address.

It doesn't matter what your past arrest record is....once in police custody, you're protected by the constitution.

All of us should be horrified to see due process violated, regardless of the guilt or innocence of the person in custody.

As Baltimore’s destructive #BlackLivesMatter riots continue to rage, some new information has been revealed about the gentleman they’re burning Baltimore down for.

According to the Maryland Department of Justice, Freddie Gray had the 18 documented arrests below, at a minimum:
FREDDY GRAY
And you still think that man with at least 18 arrests and serious traumas who were running from police instead of sitting at home was not guilty?
I always laugh at comments such as these. Predictably going back to irrelevant points like what kind of grades he had in third grade has absolutely nothing to do with the situation at hand.

He could have been a serial killer the day before, has absolutely nothing to do with police responsibility for his safety once he under custody.

Really? In another thread I painted three black males who are accused of rape with the innocent until proven guilty brush, and for that I was called a mysoginistic troll. Can't win for losing on CD forums.

While I cannot agree with the OP (as clearly his record should not equate to his demise at the hands of LE), neither can I let your little nugget slide either.
All the drugs he sold hurt countless lives in the form of addiction, overdose, crimes to support drug habit, and the untold human costs via divorce, family destruction, etc.

So never ever claim that drug dealers have never hurt anyone!

Its amazing. I've asked a similar question on the last few threads regarding police violence against suspects yet receive no answer.

Do you believe policemen should have the right to execute on sight? To act as judge, jury and executioner in the space of minutes and decide whose life is worth respecting and whose is not?

Would you believe I NEVER get an answer?
