I'll answer it for you......"That's not what the NRA is about".
So what you're saying is that Black Lives Matter isn't about black lives? Agreed, never has been.

They should just change their name to "Blame Whitey" or "The Klan with a Tan" and be done with it. They aren't about "black lives", they are just one more racist, supremacist hate group.

The NRA is only about rifles?

They are winning the battle.

I understand that makes you mad.

You support aggression by supporting the State. The overwhelming number of cases in which cops use deadly force are "legally justified".

Notice I didn't say morally or logically justified?

Being a "criminal" means you've violated the fiction known as law. Are most cops logical and moral? That should be your question.

You folks support a system in which legislators pass laws giving cops special rules, judges uphold the standards (thus letting cops go), and executive public office holders don't step in to use any of their powers to rectify an immoral and illogical act.

I would argue that's because the State is there to uphold immoral and illogical behavior.

Simply put, you can't complain.
This is either criminally stupid or intellectually dishonest. I’ve seen enough of your post to know that you were not stupid. You don’t believe this. We absolutely can and must hold our institutions to a higher standard than we hold common criminals. Criminals are not accountable to us, but the police are. That is why people protest police shootings.

Bull, I would bet 99.9% are there for good reason, and this cop killer has a rap sheet as long as your arm.

Poor black man get caught with crack, it's off to prison. Rich white guy gets caught with cocaine, it gets plead down to a fine.

Why is OP crying about a black guy killing a cop, when all these white mass shooters are running around. When was the last time white people protested mass shooters and actually did something about them?



See how that works?
There are more black on black killings in one weekend than mass murders in the last 50yrs.

There's not enough outrage coming from law enforcement, that's for sure. My most recent interactions with cops has made it clear that many of them have no interest in cleaning up their image. They know that they are a natural foe of young black men and that's the way they like it.

When a black man is killed by a white cop, before any investigation can even really begin, there are often protests calling for the police officer's head on a platter. Black man kills white cop, and we see no protests or riots. Just people who say it's sad and they hope justice will be served once they catch the guy. But when the roles are reversed, the same people want the cop burned at the stake and will often only accept racism as the reason why the officer killed the suspect. So now, we not only have no protests for the dead officer, we also have the race element left out of the story because as we all know, here in America, racism against white people does not matter. We just deserve it because of **** our great, great, great, great grandfathers may or may not have done 100 years ago.


Now, with all that being said, more than likely, the cop was just shot because the criminal wanted to get away. The suspect probably would have shot a black man just as quickly as a white one. Which is the same sort of thinking all these race-baiters on the other side of the fence should be thinking. Maybe the cop shot the black guy because he was being threatened, not because he was black. Maybe, that cop would have shot a white guy just as fast in the same situation. Yes, I know, crazy thought isn't it. Critical thinking people. We need more of it.
BINGO!

And I would be willing to bet the black guy has a long criminal record and as a repeat offender he will be treated with less leniency.

The way that some of you are using the word "blacks" is coming across with a lot of venom and negativity. It's showing who you are online and probably who you are offline as well. Disgusting. I'm outraged when anyone loses their life and the person responsible is not punished for it.
