So there has been a lot of police brutality cases in the US lately, lots of people have been killed by police for almost no reason.
Some people believe that its a race issue, while others believe it has nothing to do with race. I just want to know what you believe
- People are getting shot by police because of racism. If they were white, they would probably be alive56%(25)47%(44)Vote40%(19)
- The police are just doing their jobs. Its not a race issue, if you obey the officer then you will be fine. Its simple20%(9)25%(23)Vote29%(14)
- Its not about race, White people get shot by cops for no reason too16%(7)19%(18)Vote23%(11)
The people who think all cops are bad and racist, are retarded

I'm a black American, and race DOES play a factor, not skin tone. Don't matter if you're lightskin or darkskin.
The thing is, some cops tend to be more "on-edge" and "jumpy", when it comes to dealing with black citizens in possibly hostile situations.
Too many pre-emptive strikes (which some has unfortunately resulted in death), by the cops being too jumpy and edge, and not following their training.
On the flipside, in almost every situation with a black citizen and a white cop that has made the news,
the black cop didn't completely SUBMIT physically and verbally to the cop. There was some physical or verbal resistance committed by the black citizen.
If you are a cop, and you have been called to deal with a situation with a citizen (regardless of race), and the citizen is being verbally or physically resistant to you and your partners... you're going to think "this person is a possible danger"... because it is a good presumption to think that a non-threatening, law-abiding citizen won't cause any resistance during the encounter.8

I'm very mixed on this. Police brutality is a problem. Period. Yes, the media is reporting case by case and these recent cases involved black people.
There has also been cases, that involve police brutality against other races (hispanic, white). I'M NOT SAYING THAT POLICE BRUTALITY ISN"T A MAIN ISSUE AGAINST THE BLACK COMMUNITY RIGHT NOW!
I'm sorry for the caps, but I'm so tired of sjw's coming for me like I'm taking anything away from the blm movement -__-*1
