I absolutely agree with you. People who are pointing that out are those who are against Black Lives Matter and don't know what BLM is about. What they did was wrong, cruel and it shouldn't happen. Their skin color doesn't matter.1
Because there is no systematic racism. There is racism which exists everywhere in the world. The American media plays the clever trick of putting out every single instance where a black person is harmed by Police in a country where there are 50 different states, 300million people and hundreds of thousands of run ins with Police every day which by and large happen peacefully save for the few instances that you want to highlight and where a substantial portion of them at least are partly a response to a resistance to arrest. It's easy to point to a systematic problem where all the instances that are taken into account are those where there is a problem... If you factor the thousands of other arrests which are perfectly lawful and by the book you realize there is nothing 'systematic' about that, systematic implies it happens a majority of times if not every time... It is not the case... It is just democratic propaganda by people who care nothing for black people and care only about PR stances to get Black people to vote for them0
I just find it interesting that when it’s black cops killing a black man they lock them up right away but when it’s a white cop who kills a black man they drag it out for months and you have people defending them etc10
What Girls & Guys Said
From an external non US point of view, it is criminal for police to use unreasonable force that results in the death or significant injury of an apprehended person. However they should be able to use deadly force if they themselves are threatened in the course of their duties. That much is clear.
The question arises as to how much force can be used if an apprehended person is forcefully trying to escape apprehension. It does make sense that police should be able to increase the amount of force used. Certainly it does not make sense for the police to just let an apprehended person go if he/she violently resists arrest.
I certainly don't know the answer to this question but it is easy to see that a situation of violent resistance could escalate. I think this is the question to answer and an important one in any western country.
Some people might be more inclined and more able to violently resist.
I don't wish to comment on any racial aspects as that it is not appropriate for me to do so.0
It's just hilarious that commies like you cried for like a week that they were White supremacists. You reeeee that this is why Blacks should be policing Black communities. Then it comes out that they are all Black which contradicts your position. We all smile and laugh at you. You try to shift the narrative but no one believes your bullshit. Then it comes out that 3 out of 5 of them were Vice Lord gang members that were hired due to lowered hiring standards due to BLM efforts to defund the police. It's just fun to make fun of you. We'll never stop laughing at your failures commie.20
Because it isn't. This is just Freudian "subconsciousness" nonsense, where when your argument falls apart in the face of evidence, you just claim your opponent has "subconscious bias" or "repressed the memory" or what have you.
If you can't understand WHY that's a problem, then consider this: as large as the overrepresentation of black people in our jails and morgues is, it's only a FRACTION of the size of the overrepresentation of men in those positions. Is "the system" sexist against men?10
The whole system is not at fault. 1960's Democrats creating The War On Poverty and the Matriarchal social culture of the Black community it produced are at fault.
The The War On Poverty created fatherless/mentor-less households run by patronizing, domineering women. Young men in those settings gravitate toward being validated by street gangs. Those police officers did not have that gang mentality trained out of them. Their conduct has nothing to do with Republicans, MAGA, "white supremacy" or some such. This mass murder is the fault of the URBAN BLACK CULTURE that Democrats created over 50 years ago. It will never end until people admit the truth and do something useful about it. If you don't like the truth, block me.0
Your statement is simply, blatenly false, based on WHAT? I have been through two police academies, and NEVER was there ANY hint of INHERENT racism built into either academy, not covertly or otherwise. The fact that the man bolted from his car, and ran, and the officers chased him down was no reason for them to beat the man.
Where have you been? Black on Black murder is rampant across the country.
Seven black people, were shot, and three of them (women) died at the scene. Another four were taken to the hospital. The 3 million dollar home near Beverly Hills was owned by black RAPPER "Drake" who was conveniently not at home. Chicago is the "HOME" of black on black "murder' and has been for years!
Why would you make such an unfounded statement? Blacks murder EACH OTHER by the hundreds in this country!10
They’re making a big deal about that one aspect because of BLM and the movement against police violence against the black community.
The focus of these topics has mostly been white on black crime in the form of police brutality.
The fact that this instance of police brutality was not committed by white officers, people are losing their minds.
I guess a different way to explain it is that some people want it to be a race issue rather than a systematic issue.0
It just baffles my mind how pissed the left is that they are black! Now fucks like you have to scramble and find a way to still blame it on racism. It's more about black culture being violent against each other. If you don't believe, read some stats.30
Because the words “systemic racism” don’t have any meaning other than simply something people don’t like. The five guys who killed Tyre were bad people - simple as that. No sensitivity training could’ve prevented it. No racial bias training could’ve stopped them. Nobody should’ve given them a badge in the first place.10
there's no such thing as systemic racism. there's only individual racism
clearly there are people who believe these cops can't think for themselves0
Because it’s different. It’s a new optic to the BLM cause. It strengthens it tbh. It shows that police culture is rife with racism so much it affects black cops too. They all feel a black man can be beaten and they can get away with it.0
I am still waiting for confirmation / refutation of the rumor that he was dating the ex of one of the officers. Not sure that this has anything to do with race.0
Because I don’t see blm anywhere. It proves blm only cares if a black is killed by a white cop. If a white kills a black it’s racist but if a black kills a black it’s no big deal13
so wait, you're telling me that black people are too stupid to disobey an order telling them to "beat up black people" by the"system"? lol. God damn you leftists are dumb.20
You sound ridiculous. The police system is indeed trash on how it's structured to police the community, but those 5 idiots above are 100% responsible for the abuse and murder of Trye Nichols.10
Why does the news not say Black police officers every time they talk about this story?
If they were White, you would hear White police officers hit a Black man.
Yes the entire system is at fault including the media10
If it was white, it's racism
Since they're black, it's the system
Did BLM feed you this garbage?20
Some people like anrtifa are probably pissed they were weren't white cops.12
Yeah it matters. Had the cops been white, cities across the U. S. would be burning.0
It gives me great sadness knowing other members of my generation are of this level of intelligence10
Because the SJWs are hypocrites. If white people did this it would have been considered racism, since they were black, the SJWs blames the system.10

Becaus its not. Blacks are way overrepresented in crime statistics, especially violent crime statistics, despite being a small minority population they responsible for a majority of these sorts of crimes. It’s not weird then that they are also overrepresented in ”killed by cop”-statistics. It’s not just black unarmed people being killed by cops, it’s people of all races. You never hear about the white ones because it doesn’t fit the narrative. For example we have the Tony Timpa case who was killed the same way as George Floyed, they even held Timpa down 5 minutes longer than floyed, yet most people never even heard of him or how he died because media and social justice warriors didn’t push his case. There are 300-460 whote people killed by police each year, 170-250 black people. Yes, because blacks are a smaller part of the over all population they are over represented in these statistics, but again - so are they in crime statistics. It’s not weird or systemic racism that people who commit crime at a hogher rate have a higher risk of being killed by cops. And the bullshit pictures you’ve posten of the black cop, painted over to have pake skin, blonde hair and blue eyes is nothing but pure racism against white people. Imagine if a white cop killed a white man and people paknted black face, afro and democrat merch on that white cop. Oh outrage. But you’re so deep in this shit that you don’t even realize your own racism and bullshit.
While your point about statistics is valid, they don't really address what "systemic racism" is all about. The number of black vs white deaths, per capita, or even who kills whom, is a separate issue to what real systemic racism is all about. It's not simply a law enforcement issue - it's more insidious than that and goes far beyond crime stats.
Still, it's good to point out what the stats really say and not roll them into some strawmen narrative that's not really about SR.
You’re wrong once again. We are overpoliced which is why there is more crime statistics for black communities but white people committ the same crime but you guys are not as heavily policed so the crimes go unsolved.
Once again? LOL When was I wrong before? Let's stick to the stats, Anon, and the stats say that certain Black communities are over policed, while others are under policed. It's incorrect to say that ALL black communities are over policed or that ALL white communities are under policed. Much of that depends on local funding, allocations, and where the police chiefs think they need the most coverage.
