A (white) police officer in Fort Worth has shot and killed a 28 year old (black) woman in her own home. A neighbor reported that the woman's front door was open and lights were on around 2:30 in the morning. Here is the story in The Daily Mail:

What is our country coming to? This makes me sick.

I think a better question is why is this nations white majority not outraged about this continuing to occur. This young black queen was very gifted. She attended Xavier University. She studied biology and majored in chemistry with a minor in pre-med.

I’m white and I am horrified that this woman was shot. My condolences, this should not have happened.

I am outraged; but for the record, I would be outraged regardless of the racial identities of either the cop or the victim.

LEOs have always committed crimes like this toward black communities at much higher rates than toward white communities, only now it can’t be covered up as easily because of the Internet. Apparently asking for police training reform to help prevent tragedies like this means you want anarchy? I don’t suspect this thread will get much attention because it’s such a clear case of victimization that LEO cheerleaders can't really follow this format for arguing against reform:

Quote:
That didn't happen.
And if it did, it wasn't that bad.
And if it was, that's not a big deal.
And if it is, that's not my fault.
And if it was, I didn't mean it.
And if I did...
You deserved it.
The argument would have to end in a way that she deserved to be killed because she had the audacity to be in a dark room while her living room light was on and door was open in the middle of the night. Even as a clean-cut white guy, I think about the people I grew up with who ended up in law enforcement, and I wouldn’t ever trust them with any authority to handle a situation properly.
