Hopefully they got some of the "kinks" worked out in the countries before the US. Even a smooth transition isn't going to lead anywhere nice though..

It's been fascinating to watch it all build up over the years. Especially the increase in cries for revolution without a thought given to what would replace the current system (much less why it would be an improvement).

Ideally, people will wake up to the divisionary tactics and work towards something different. If that should happen, we may actually start working towards a better world. It could either be the blatant tactics pulling off the blinders, or turning the blinders into bars.

Despite the manipulation, it is up to all of us. Humanities greatest strength and weakness, I suppose..

Yeah... I'm not saying it's right to be destructive by any means but a failed system can only keep teetering for so long.

I can bet that the police will not be the losers on this one.



Oh, they'll be the losers, alright. Just not the only ones. I think we're all going to come out losing if this catches on.

That's my point, the police will come out stronger in my opinion, all over the nation, we the ones that have nothing to do with what is going on are the ones to feel it the most, when more strictest laws starts to pop up all over.

Understood and agreed.

I think this will lead to more healthy people getting put into police transport only to end up dead before ever arriving to the destination.

It's like a loophole. "Hey guys, they keep filming us beating people to death so wait until after they're in the car before you kill them".

I hope the police unions aren't so strong that great upstanding cops can't come up to the forefront to help combat the issue with a very loud voice. We have't seen that and we need to.

You bring a good point, I wonder why now we are getting all this headlines of police brutality and excessive force, when I know for sure that this is been going on for years, but why now? and why is been relegated to one side as if to excite one particular group within our population.

I think you know the answer to that. The real potential threat to an organized police force is an organized militia. If the average organized militia member is led to believe they are supposed to be culturally-opposed to the people the police are victimizing (minorities), they won't lift a finger to help.

It's why the "oath keepers" aren't there or in any place where they don't ideologically agree with the victims. If the media portrayed more of the brutality towards the white people from police, it would shift that. Neither the media nor the government wants that.

See, this what makes the protests and riots look to the rest of us far and away from the areas of incidents go nuts about what in the heck is really this people protesting and rioting for.

Yes we know that is injustices been committed all over, but lord have mercy looting and stealing is not a protest for justice.

Having been following a lot of these incidences that have been occurring within the last 5 years, here is what is being seen and it boils down to several points.

The day of the police being credible is over. At one time, if complaints came up of the police being corrupt, many people would say no, that is not correct, or it was far and few between. However, with the advent of the cameras and it being posted everywhere, it starts to wear down, if not lend weight to the argument that the police have been targeting or have been very corrupt during this entire time. And with every incident like this that comes out, one can only ask, if this is the case more and more.

The police are not keeping up with the times, with cameras being around more, the chances that they are getting caught misbehaving, tending to go up more and more. And unfortunately, it is appearing that the police are indeed targeting the minorities to the effect where a person is getting shot on simple traffic violations. And as has been currently seen, police are a bit happy on the trigger and are jumping the gun, ignoring the laws of the state, or are fabricating, if not planting evidence, to get that ticket and it is at the expense of people. And it appears as though they have no connection to the people or neighborhoods that they are patrolling, or are using their knowledge to go after or target people that they find undesirable.

But on the flip side, the question is who makes the choices to violate the law? Why do people who are getting say a ticket for a simple infraction, run like they are going to be shot, then complain when they get tackled. Why are the public choosing to put forth the face of criminals who are not upstanding citizens. Those recently who have been the victims, are often either petty criminals or are less than upstanding in the eyes of the law. Yet they all had one thing in common, they all died, at the hands of the police.

The problem is growing, and the people are tired. The first problem is that the police are supposed to uphold the law, and many do, but a few are showing that they are not only not upholding the law, but are breaking the law. And what is worse, is that the justice system, from the police, the DA to the judges are not taking a hard enough stance against them. Far too often, the police are given the benefit of the doubt and at times when it is proven in a court of law, that the officer did indeed violate the law or is guilty of breaking the law, they are given a light sentence. It as if they do not want to prosecute such and there have been times when other officers turn around and try to cover up the wrong doing. A good old boy network.

The final problem happens to the be the very people themselves. The people have to get out and vote, the do elect the various city council members, they do elect the mayor and ultimately, it lays with in the power of the people to make those changes. Far too often officials get into office, and then they fail to uphold or speak for the people. They tend to shy away from offending or making the politically inconvenient decisions to hold make the laws or see that they are enforced equally across the board. It is the city council and mayor that hires the police chief, it is the city council and state legislatures that write the laws and rules. And the saddest thing is that people are not holding those lawmakers accountable for such.

And based off of what all we are seeing, this is going to happen, again and again. People are tired of police corruption. Police should not be there to be judge, jury and executioner. Nor should people be so brutally tortured or harmed when being caught and taken into custody. As much as I do respect the police, and understand that they have a very hard job. But that should not be where they are acting like they are above the law, nor should the rest of the police put up with misbehavior with in their department. Someone should have stopped the abuse of the person, before it went that far, and they should have erred on the side of caution when it comes to a suspect asking or begging for medical attention.

Investigations take time, and people need to be patient, rioting will not get the long term changes that people need, nor will making themselves a nuisance to the very people who they need support from. They need to appeal to the public, to demand that justice, with one voice. They need to stand up and look at both sides of the issue, that people should not be breaking the law, or running or resisting arrest, nor should the cops be so rough or acting with out impunity. And the DA’s need to go after the cops, with the same vigor as they would go after a criminal, judges need to be consistent with sentencing, if not a bit harder on the police who do violate the laws. And above all, people need to get out and vote, and stop putting the same person into office, or putting a candidate into office that keeps ignoring them except when it is election time.
