Once Freeman revealed his decision at the news conference, Raeisha Williams, communications director for the Minneapolis chapter of the NAACP and a City Council candidate, said, “If the city burns, it’s on your hands.” Miski Noor, a Black Lives Matter organizer, downplayed Williams’ comment, saying, “I don’t think Raeisha is advocating [violence]. … I think her point is people are frustrated and are upset because yet again the justice system does not value black life.”

Cops shoot people all the time. Why put yourself in a position to invite an interaction with the Cops? Do you go looking for sharks to swim with in the ocean?

As many posts as I see condemning police for bad actions on this site it seems a little hypocritical the way some people respond. A post to condemn but that's as far as it's taken. These people are actually out trying to make a change. Granted they need better organization, a clearer message and perhaps better discrimination on the incidents they protest. I think if they would have better leadership they could make a difference.

I believe that, liberal ideology has blame. I also think social economic disparity is a cause as well, in economically challenge areas there will be more economic crimes therefor a higher police presence and a "profiling"- more encounters with a (at times) rouge police force will guarantee incident. Also class warefare is used as a rallying cry by the American left, so there's a lot that goes into this, but it is not as simple as," Murcia' hates black people" it's more like," Murcia has elements that allow abuse of power, which results in the wanton deaths of all races".. If we could unite at that point you know, the point where a white mothers son was killed unjustly, or a black mothers son, than we could start making real progress on the root causes.
