I have a lot of issues with modern police, but this is downright disgusting. This cop, 23, was shot in the head inside his car because the killer wanted to be famous for killing a cop. He got what he wanted. The "community" has built him a shrine:
In Jersey City, a sidewalk memorial honors a cop killer | NJ.com
Among the messages: "Thug in Peace."
On jaws they thought the crew needed a bigger boat. Well America, I think we need a bigger toilet.

disgusting.

here's what the thug's disgusting wife said:

Quote:
The wife of the suspect who allegedly shot and killed Jersey City Officer Melvin Santiago Sunday morning said repeatedly to News 12 that her husband did not go far enough in his shooting rampage.

Standing next to an impromptu street memorial to Lawrence Campbell, the suspect fatally shot by police, Angelique Campbell said, “He should’ve taken more with him…God forgive me, that’s how I feel.”

This problem is far bigger than one article. This is a problem from both sides. When a city starts stopping people for "being black" like they are doing in NYC it causes a lot of resentment. It's never O.K. to take another life and that is most certainly not the answer but even my perception of law enforcement has changed a lot over the last 10 years.

What's also disturbing is if someone stole her (Campbell) iPHONE or food stamps, she would be screaming for police help in catching the thief. These dirt bags always play both sides of the fence.

Actually lets get it right, these are his moms comments:

"He didn't do it," she said. "That's not Lawrence."
Gesturing to the memorial, she added, "This is Lawrence right here."

Campbell's mother thinks the Orient Avenue memorial is just the beginning.
"You're going to see a whole lot of this," she said.


In other words she is saying that she cant believe her son did it, but she thinks there will be more. Why does she think there will be more should be the question.

Also interesting:

the qoute “He should’ve taken more with him…God forgive me, that’s how I feel.”

Google finds some links to news stories, but some of them have had that quote removed. Why would they do that? Possibly because its not accurate? Hmm?

What in the f--king hell?

This is a symptom of a larger problem that afflicts our nation. There is something seriously wrong with inner city culture and Urban Black culture in particular.
