I was really trying to stay out of this thread. Even more inhuman than watching the cops execute this young man, who was begging for his life cause he
has a daughter are some of the inhumane responses in this thread. The attempts to justify what was done to this person, and I finally realise that
some lives do have more value than not. It's never overtly spoken, but it's understood, when I see threads of this nature.
The last straw really came with the poster trying to imply that the kid walking up had a gun in his hands and these gangsta kids deserve to have
deadly force used against them. I am guessing that the kid had a cameraphone, because without video evidence to back them up, these kids would not be
believed when they tell tales of law enforcement officers brutally murdering an unarmed young man for no apparent reason.
They have their little cameraphones with them because this video evidence is all these young people have, after their friends get slaughtered like
animals by the police, and there executions go unmourned, unpunished, there really is not justice for them, not in the courts, and not even on these
forums. Just possible justification in most cases as to why they maybe deserved to get shot.
A couple of years ago, at least there were still dissenting voices who would have been outraged by this video and these actions, but more and more I
see those voices are no longer here, and what's been left behind in many cases, is worst then some of the actions being perpetrated. More infuriating
than the actual shooting of this young man, was the complete lack of remorse in many cases for his life, and the family and child he left behind.
That's all that I am going to say, and like the poster who existed the thread, I think I will follow suit.
