How is calling someone an "animal" who murders people being racist? And how is citing FBI statistics--basically the gold standard in America for crime statistics--being racist?

Get used to it.
You are right. Innocent people being subjected to martial law from crimes they had nothing to do with. It's started.
And we should "get used to it."
Nothing tastes better than the boot of an authoritarian, I suppose.

I get what your saying on the overreach thing, but it won't hit home to most until it directly effects their family. My cousin (pretty much little brother) was shot in the back of the head in one of these ghettos just a couple weeks ago. Guess what, nobody in the neighborhood wants to talk to the police, so my cousin gets no justice.
So on that note, I don't feel sorry for the neighborhoods that actively protect murderers. I feel sorry for the men that have to patrol those criminal havens. I guess if the citizens of that neighborhood are conducting any criminal behavior then they have something to worry about, but if not I'm unsure why getting a dangerous murderer off the streets is a big deal.

That's why there quotations before and after martial law. A resident was qouted as saying that. It was in the article... Link provided in OP.
How would you define it?

I wonder how much they would welcome the Police if there was a White serial killer running lose in their neighborhood. Ah anyway... I think the law normally does this in these neighborhoods for the simple fact that nobody will come forward to report the known offenders in the area. Prett much, "If your not gonna help us and tell us where the bad guy's are, then we will just have to come look on our own in force."
Their past actions as a culture are to blame for these types of responses.

Did they close down a neighborhood for a week for his murders investigation? Yea I didn't think so...which shows about how much they care. I'm sorry for your loss though and I do hope that they are able to find those responsible, just not trampling our rights to do so.
Edit: also a lot of times people who live there don't want reprisals if it is found out they talked...which does happen is such neighborhoods. I mean its not like the,police are going to really protect them later on down the road.

It frightens me how many people in this thread are so willing to give up to a police state or martial law situation. I guess it's fine and dandy until it's your neighborhood.
In the neighborhoods where some of those soldiers may have grown up.

Some of the cities in the US have become war zones.
You think that after 8 years of Obama pumping money into the neighborhoods, people would be happy as a lark.
