most of which are in for drug related nonviolent crimes
that occur just as frequently in white neighborhoods.... but those neighborhoods are usually wealthier and the people can afford legal council so the police dont bother and instead go after the low hanging fruit.... not all the time obviously but frequently
and then the statistics show more crime in those areas because thats where enforcement is actually occurring so those areas are focused on more and then they catch more and the cycle of idiocy continues

LMAO. You think one video proves cops are not racist? I'm not saying all are, but just because they didn't unload on him in this particular instance, doesn't mean they wouldn't have. They assessed the situation as they were coming on scene, had been alerted by dispatch what was going on and that kept them from using their weapons. If they had just happened to see this as they were driving by, the outcome could have been very different.

The man conducts himself in a civilized manner. Not only do they not shoot him, he picks his weapon back up. This man did not act like a thug and therefore was treated like any other ordinary citizen. They then shake his hand!
