Please don't riot, this case could be the keystone in the legitimate cause for the significant reduction of police power across this country.
May God bless this victim of unprovoked police violence and let his sacrifice be not squandered.

"Expect it to be peaceful" yet they have 15 cops lined up there...? I understand preparations but they obviously have reasons to think that it won't be peaceful...
I wish I could think like that. I feel like a hypocrite having the opinion I do, but seeing the video of this event, I cannot imagine any evidence that would justify the cops actions as "alright". As I said, I don't thin the cop meant to kill anyone, and I think he would have did this no matter what race the guy was, but none of that makes what did right. he used excessive force where it was not needed and it resulted in a man's death. (IMHO)
