    I'm no longer a police officer, but I'm still a police chaplain and am around this stuff a lot, and was involved in this transition in both our local PD and SO. It was a combination of a lot of factors. What you brought up was certainly a major consideration.

    So this guy goes to buy a car, then shoots the seller 5 times and steals the car. Then he posts on facebook bragging that the police can't catch him. US Marshalls go after him and he rams their car and comes at them shooting. They shoot back and kill him and the crowd starts rioting and throwing stuff at the police injuring 36 of them, 6 had to go to the hospital. THEN the dead guy's father goes and put out a "hit" on law enforcement officers.

    Roy agreeing with you? I suppose there's a first time for everything.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    pretty much. It's the police's fault for shooting a murderer who was shooting at them, just because the kid was black. This world has gone crazy.

    No, not the issue of the thread.

    Over the top extreme sarcasm noted.

    The "issue" is that you have yet to show that police are racist at a higher rate than the general population, or that racism is a pervasive and systemic issue in police departments in general.

    He finally said he's not claiming the first part, and but seems to think he's proven the second.
    "We see unmistakably the sort of universe in which we have all along been living, and must come to terms with it. If we had foolish un-Christian hopes about human culture, they are now shattered. If we thought we were building up a heaven on earth, if we looked for something that would turn the present world from a place of pilgrimage into a permanent city satisfying the soul of man, we are disillusioned, and not a moment too soon." - C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
