But you're the enemy...how can you possibly know the reality of the situation?

End sarcasm....

I have had interaction with plenty of LEO here on ATS and in the real world on a friendly level and can say I have never met one that seemed racist to me. Many of them being in Mississippi and Georgia, where I have lived most of my life. These two areas are known for people thinking they are racist too.

I looked at the countless instagram photos and videos, you're wrong.


I seriously doubt you reviewed all the Twitter feeds, not all the patrons enjoyed the jackasses presence.


This event was over a WEEK ago.


Oh really?


In a twist on sit-in-style protests, civil rights activists entered several restaurants in New York City and Oakland, Calif., on Sunday in what organizers billed as “Black Brunch.”


You are aware that today is Monday, the day after Sunday, which makes the protests YESTERDAY for the chronologically impaired.



No arrests made. Except people in this thread want to crucify this group.


Lack of arrests is a straw man and does nothing to diminish the fact they protested on private property having nothing to do with police brutality.

When has "the race card" ever stopped a Jail sentence?

Back that nonsense up with facts instead of your opinion...

Having admitted to being racist & a liar I find anything you say difficult to believe.

As of right now it doesn't. Well at least in my neck of the woods.

However, I am afraid that things may change in the near future.

Why would an officer want to make an arrest or enforce a law if the outcome is them being accused of racism, lambasted in the media, and career possibly ruined?

I mean look at some of the names the protesters were reading aloud and claiming to be victims of police brutality.

Many were high on drugs, attacking people, and died after the fact from excited delirium. Somehow the officers are blamed.

I have a feeling smaller crimes are going to be overlooked. Who knows what will happen from there.

It doesn't. People who use it just think it does. Any more questions?

When an officer decides not to make an arrest on a person because they are a minority due to the fact that they don't want to be accused of racism or corruption.

Police administration throws them under the bus, the mayor throws them under the bus, the community threatens them with violence etc.

So instead they turn the other cheek and don't make the arrest.

Ok let me get this right...

Is that pulling the race card & an officer backing off?...
Or is that officers predicting the race card will be pulled & then making a decision?..

Stop trolling me dude you know you just want to vent online about black protesters. You probably support 2nd amendment and pro life protesters. Nice reply when I said instagram and you go back to twitter. 2nd #blackbrunch on the west coast was a week ago, do some research. Thirdly are you mad bro? Catching feelings that some of these white people in the restaurants are now going to support the movement? It's you making the divide, the irony here, oh boy. If you join the movement, there is no divide. You can't stand by another race that is not yours? That is being racist! Helloooooooooooo......it's no surprise that white people are outraged, haha, wonder why......

Yes, two more questions...

Why did you say "doesn't happen anymore" if it hasn't happened?

& if it has happened would you kindly share a source?

I've never considered something like this before, but, politics being what they are--I can easily see this happening.

That's what I'm afraid of. Where does that leave Joe public who is law abiding? I'm not submitting to a one sided form of justice. Better to be judged by 12 then carried by 6.

That is my main gripe with Obama. He is a black man holding the highest seat in the nation and cannot come out to speak for or against it. He obviously doesn't give a # about the police or his black constituents.

You are correct that would not fit the accepted defintion of the race card.

Not a good thing nontheless.

Here, I'll explain it in layman's terms. You hack at the system until it fits your idea of it. The hatchet is the race card. Anymore questions? It does seem to be working. The police are not arresting them for petty crimes now.

Woot!

Not saying it is right or wrong but it is already happening.

The scuttlebutt among the police social media community is that officers are slowing down on participating in self initiated activity (traffic stops, consensual encounters, etc) and only responding to dispatched calls for service.

I know that many will see this as good thing, maybe even you.

That being said self initiated activity is a very effective and important tool in policing.

It allows us to take career criminals off the street before they strike again.

It also helps us to catch wanted criminals. Ted Bundy and Timothy McVeigh were both caught via self initiated activity by a police officer.
