It's been going on for 50 years. Rioting has changed nothing.

Guess what? The hood gets all the rookie and discipline problem cops that for one reason or another can't be fired. Why? Because no cop that has a choice wants to be in the hood because of the way the residents conduct themselves. Any rookie that survives long enough to get seniority leaves for greener pastures.

The riots in Chicago in the '60s were over the exact same thing. The CPD has been "reformed" many times since then, but the hood is still the hood, and they still get all the shithead cops because of it.

I'd have to say it's different in Detroit. We have a fine PD, run by a spectacular Chief of Police. DPD changed when Malice Green was beat to death with a flashlight by two white cops in 1992

White cops killing blacks and getting little or no punishment for it. It happens over and over and over. Sooner or later people will respond as they are currently. That precedent.
absolutely they should be treated like any other murderous criminal.

Looting IMO, does not move the courts or the general public to that course of action.

percentage wise, how big is this category in the last 5 years?

The looting is a result of inaction over the years. It didn't start right away. It's frustration. I certainly don't agree with it, but I understand the frustration.

I hope they all feel better when they get tired of burning everything down. I would think for sure that there would be some real satisfaction and healing to come from all this strife and upset.

We all know that a year from now they'll be bitching about how they have to drive 5 miles to a full sized grocery store and how they don't have enough low income housing in the area and how it's racism that keeps Target from reopening a store in their neighborhood.

Before I get accused of supporting looting - I don't. That stance hasn't changed since the last time I posted it this afternoon.
well aren't you clever. The Boston tea party, yes, the King was over taxing people. We formed a new country. Evidently you don't approve of the US.

So then Target is over charging people..

Freedom from stores!
Freedom from stores!
Freedom from stores!

get rid of those fucking things

that's gonna really help.

C'mon, dude.....are you intimating there is no black on white crime???

While we agree for the most part regarding the psuedo-jogger's murder and most certainly this bullshit; does it ever strike you as strange how stories like the cemetery attack/murder or the asshole who beat the elderly honky didn't make national headlines???

No, of course not.

Elderly honky? If you mean the nursing home beating, both the perpetrator and victim were black.

Are we talking about the same incident??




"Footage emerged yesterday of a man later identified as 20-year-old Jadon Hayden beating up a defenseless elderly white man by repeatedly punching him in the face."

Do you mind sharing where you saw that??

It would seem odd to be making the racial statements he allegedly made against another black man.

There's also another video in that link where he appears be striking an old white lady.
Your link is the only one with those videos and that statement, I haven't seen it anywhere else. Check out the Detroit news and Detroit free press. I found the picture from someone at local tv station on facebook.

Google Norman Bledsoe

Here's another for rumble phish
Imagine this:

You purchase a 65 inch TV for your mother. It doesn't fit in your SUV, so you ask the store if they will hold it for you to pick up later. You and your mother come back later to get the TV, and start loading it in your vehicle. An officer in the store thinks you're stealing it. A store employee explains to the officer that the TV was paid for. The officer ignores this, and calls the police department for backup. You tell your mother, and the both of you decide to return the TV to the store because you don't want any problems. While trying to get your refund, 4 officers, including the first, throw you and your 68 year old mother on the ground. You get a concussion, and 3 of your teeth are shattered during the beating. Your mother is a witness and thinks they are going to kill you. She suffers injuries to her tailbone, back, shoulder, knees and arms. You know she is in frail health. You are humiliated in front of an entire store that sees a black man accused of stealing a TV. The city’s public safety director later denies that the officers used excessive force.

HOW THE HECK WOULD YOU FEEL?

Fuck you
Time to step back ... and round up the animals at the zoo.. National Guard curfew is 24 hours too late but the big wheels of logistics in government moves slowly. Wonder how tomorrow night will go.

That picture is worth 1000 words.
US police are thugs for the most part. Boot boys that know they can get away with almost anything, including murdering suspects rather than arresting them, fabricating evidence, lying on a scale that is inhuman, yet justified under the law, and the occasional act of brutality like this.

YES I AM GENERALIZING. YES THERE ARE GOOD COPS THAT ARE ALSO UPSET

But, the police force is where the Govt rubber, meets the populace road. They can never be anything more than the tools of oppression via enforcement of selcted laws in selected cirumstances to "maintain order" the order of the Govt.

Why is only Blacks that express the rage that many oppressed people feel?

When is mangina uprising in Beverly hills going to burn that police station to the ground?

I wonder what these folks felt:
'This wooded area was where an exchange of gunfire between Francis and officers on scene had taken place at approximately 12:08 p.m. Upon being located Francis was confirmed to have sustained a gunshot wound.

exchange of gunfire? maybe, maybe not. Who will ever know, and the cops are well aware of that

Vegas, do you really think the experience of being white even compares to the experience of being black? Come on man! I guess you can partially be forgiven for not living in or near a crowded diverse city. A few isolated cases doesn't change things. Being black and encountering whites results in constant forms of racism...constant. It works the other way as well, but it pales in comparison.

Black people do these things every day without being arrested, beaten or murded.

You're missing the point. Yes, they do, but there's more of a chance of being arrested, beaten and murdered if you do those things while black. Much more of a chance.
Ask Mr Crump how many of these civil rights cases hes won... to date.
Are you one of those color friend collectors? Just to steal from Dr. King... judge folks on the content of their character.
