At the end of the day this is media driven IMO ,as each time a white cop shoots a black kid it gets national attention and only accelerates with each case.
If the same situation would have been reported without any mention of color there would be no "news" to report on.
There are places in cities that white people should know better than to go and it is not a secret!, but I'll be dammed if a black kid with his pants around his knees gets an odd look while walking through a predominate white suburb ,then all hell breaks loose and everyone is a racist . This racist thing is 1 sided. Examples are everywhere . I'll name 1 ~ BET (black entertainment channel) O thats great ! Now lets see Ted Turner get a channel on cable called WET (white entertainment channel ). How well would that go over !?
I was talking to my father in law last night about this ( he doesnt watch the news) and after I told him how a black kid was shot by a cop and his hood was rioting ,looting and being a neighbor hood of thugs .....his words where along the lines of " those stupid *!*$# are nothing but thugs and are using this as an excuse to be criminals." Now here is the kicker he is as black as the kid that got shot!
Agreed. The mad rush to put information out there to prop up ratings etc has contributed to a poorly informed public. Once misinformation gets out there, it takes on a life of its own. I'm pretty much staying out of most conversations these days, but in this case I could not resist. But on the topic at hand I've said nothing and at this point I don't know what to think. I will say that my wife's uncle has been a county sheriff for over a decade, and some of the equipment they have accumulated via federal grants since 9-11 concerns me. He says that they don't need the stuff, but who is going to say no to "free stuff."

Deadly force is deadly force, when guns come out its to reduce the force being encountered not wound. This will be Trayvon part Deaux but with swisher sweets instead of Skillets & Purple drank
Is the officer innocent until proven guilty?
