I have to laugh, when every time a port authority bus has an accident, there are like 300 claims of injuries, but the busses only hold about 60 people.

It's sad and funny watching BLM realize that these large urban centers with entrenched political immunity can offer them platititudes and then go about business as usual and they're too politically compromised to do anything about it.

Too many "leaders" have comfortable seats at the front of the bus that they don't want to lose by making too much of a fuss about things in democratic areas....which is where most of the black\police problems are occurring.

BLM will remain impotent until another incident comes along and the shooter is the right color, the city is republican etc. Then they will be funded and nobody will take people to task for making some democratic mayor look bad and to knock it off or lose access.

Please read this post two or three times, and move your lips while reading if necessary, to help you better absorb this basic information.
I don't believe the police were guilty of anything here, but they didn't have a problem wrestling with him prior to putting him into the van, And I don't believe they would have had a problem putting a seat belt on him, especially after he was handcuffed. look at the aggravation they could have saved themselves and I'll bet this never happens again.

Why, because it happened to a black guy? And a criminal to boot.

blacks are creating their own problems with the police then crying when it goes bad. If the police patrol in black areas its over policing if they don't its selective protection.

Financial settlement means they did wrong.
>>Oh our on duty cops killed your son for no reason but since they are cops, we can't do anything to them so here, take $$$$$ and leave us. Go spend away and enjoy life at the cost of your son. Oh btw, this $$$$$ has some of your own tax in it.

She comes out of this a winner. Convictions on minor offenses isn't as good for her as the opportunity to blame 'the system' for the verdicts:

“After much thought and prayer it has become clear that without being able to work with an independent investigatory agency from the very start, without having a say in the election of whether cases proceed in front of a judge or jury, without communal oversight of police in this community, without substantive reforms to the current criminal justice system, we could try this case 100 times and cases just like it and we would still end up with the same result," Mosby said."

She personally could only lose by Not pressing charges.
If she had done her homework and not withheld evidence, she could have saved the taxpayers a lot of money by finding there was no case to be tried, but she went on a personal headhunting vendetta. She should be disbarred.

These ridiculous charges were a big win for her.
Please explain how trumped up charges and withholding evidence is a win for her, unless some are too stupid to see this.

The withholding evidence piece will be, and has been, totally ignored by the perennially put upon.
