Let's make this clear, this is only a media driven race issue.
The truth of the matter this is a human rights issue. An unarmed person was gunned down by police. His race is irrelevant, no matter what the media
tells you. An unarmed American was gunned down by the police.
Police officers have multiple resources at their disposal to take down a person and arrest them without being lethal.
The reason these riots are happening is because an unarmed American was killed by a police officer. Forget race, the media want's you to include race
in this, but it's an irrelevant matter.
The simple facts are, an unarmed American suspect was killed by a trained law enforcement officer. That law enforcement officer was exonerated of any
wrongdoing in killing an unarmed American citizen.
Screw the race card in this, this is about Americans being violently killed by Law Enforcement Officers. Trained individuals who's primary training
is the non lethal take-down and arrest of people who have broken the law. Lethal force is of course authorized when a suspect is armed, dangerous,
violently mentally unstable, a clear and present threat to others. or even a clear and present threat to themselves.
Yes, the rioters are doing wrong. I am not arguing that. I am arguing that the people on this board that would have been pro this riot are against ti
simply because of the demographic of the people involved.
Had the scenario played out in a mostly white community and these riots started, I firmly believe the majority of the people on this board would have
been advocating in the defense of them.
