Conservatives cry that it's not a race issue when it's a black man being killed...
Then say this...
Sadly, Officer Quick simply wasn’t the right color for this to become an issue.
The usual double standard from the right wing wankers.

Double standard? Or no lesson to impart to people?
Makes me wonder. Media campaigns to garner interest to sell you stuff are either that or a campaign to convince us of something. One result of Ferguson (and New York) is the travesty of "trial" by Grand Jury. A "decision" instead of a verdict, a "review" instead of an investigation, a "proceeding" instead of a trial, in secret instead of openly.
Well in both cases, media has tried to sell these killings being racist and riots have ensued. The media is hurting the cases IMO. They are not allowing the public to see the actual evidence of the crimes because they are clouding it with "eye-witness" statements and bias towards the "racism card" since that sells and garner's viewers.
I have not reviewed any of the evidence the BYC choking death, but have reviewed all of it in the Ferguson case and can say they got it right for that one.
