It always amazes me and disgusts me at the same time when someone takes the time to make a thread, about the very subject they are tired of reading about, and especially the fact that they are basically advocating AGAINST that members freedom of speech!! Just like in life, if you do not like something, simply do not participate. Simple as that. Not to mention, now there is yet ANOTHER thread about the very subject you so greatly despise.


You clearly don't understand the concept of a rants forum do you? Your complaining about my rant that is posted in a rant forum... The intelligence of people on ATS these days is severely lacking.

Again, I could not care less if you rant. I entered the thread on my own accord. I was not complaining, I was pointing out the fact that YOU were being a hypocrite. Also, and I guess the thing that even made me comment, was YOU telling people to shut the hell up. THAT is my issue. You can cry and whine until the cows come home for all I care...Now, you want to attack my intelligence?

Racism is thinking you are superior to another race.

Telling people to "shut the hell up".

That's just rude.

As I've already pointed out, ITS A RANT FORUM. All threads within it are not suppose to be the usual "let's discuss this and consider each others opinions"
A rant is when someone shares their opinion in order to let off steam about a certain issue, telling others to shut up goes hand in hand with that. I'm not here to debate the issue I'm here to tell white people to stop trying to remind everyone that whites are also victims of police brutality - it's damaging and embarrassing.
It's like the comfortable middle class kid trying to tell everyone how bad his life is because his parents got him an xbox instead of a ps4.
So yes, I am telling you to shut the hell up because it's a rant - it's my rant. You don't like it? Start a rant of your own!

And it shows they can't handle opposing viewpoints. I've noticed that a lot on here. If someone can't handle another opinion they'll use some petty jab, nitpick the language, attack the poster.

And the only thing it shows is how uncompromising they are.

Really?

Is it that hard to say you were wrong by telling someone to shut up?

It sure seems a lot easier than writing 2 paragraphs of excuses........

You are far off base here. These threads are not created to put a spotlight on cop on white crime. They are intended to point out that police brutality is violent phenomena that affects all races. They intend to point out that people of color should not use race as the rallying cry for their efforts.

How often do you witness civil support & empathy by minority populations when a victim of crime is white? The answer is not often. Not often at all. Now how often do you witness civil support & empathy by white populations when a victim of crime is a minority? The answer is often. Very often. This fact alone speaks volumes to the mindset of the minority populations.

I want police brutality and other related crimes & injustices to be stopped for the benefit of all people. I don't get that vibe from prominent figures around this country.

Believe what you will but these threads you rant against try to portray the problem of policing as a societal problem.

"Shut UP!"!!!!!

Does that feel good?

WOW!

How can we solve our worlds problems when admitting we treated someone in a manner we wouldn't like to be treated is acceptable......

Nothing more to say,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it's your rant.

EDIT: Maybe if you just want to rant and make yourself feel better? Create a "Document" on you computer, at least that way, you won't be posting your thoughts on the "internet" and having people disagree with you.......

Just saying......

Oh good God.

Police officers kill approximately 450 people a year in America.

Now some people estimate that it may be up to 1000 due to reporting guidelines so I will use that number.

There are approximately 320,000,000 people in America.

That equates to only about .0003 of the population being killed at the hands of the police a year.

That is not even taking into account how many of those 1000 killings are 100% justified. And no I don't mean just because a court said they were, I mean 100% the perp shot at the officer first for no other reason than to kill them kind of justified.

That would make that number even smaller.

Of course no killings would be AMAZING! That is just not possible though.

And of course to ward off the inevitable comments I must make it clear that I believe any unjustified killing by a law enforcement officer is wrong and those responsible should be punished for their actions.

Don't black people murder other black people at a much higher rate than cops/civilians do?

So in essence their beef is with their own people and the occasional "white cop"....

How are they really trying to portray it as a social problem when they're using colour to distinguish who is being victimised by cops? There's just no need for those threads, we know white people get victimised by cops, it's blatantly obvious and doesn't need pointing out, by pointing it out it's as if white people are trying to normalise brutality.
"Well, if it happens to white people, what's wrong with it????"

Everything is wrong with it.

Just citing my own empirical evidence but I would venture to say that 95% of the murder cases I have investigated or helped investigate were black on black, a slightly less percentage were black on white, slightly below that white on white, and then somewhere near the bottom white on black.

I believe federal statistics would mirror my own experience.

So at what percentage of civilians being killed would you begin to consider it a problem?

While your calling stupid out you might wanna cut out your tongue and break all your fingers so you can't type, that should solve your issue of posting stupid # on this thread

Agreed. And to point out the obvious, cold hard truth, many black neighborhoods are no man's land. I don't think it's the white drug dealers, rapists and vandals destroying public facilities that cause those problems...

And in white slums, do they blame black people for murdering their own, oppressing their own, profiting off of their own while keeping their own down? Rarely.

But in some neighborhoods, white boy get out now!
