    Of course it’s Florida

    The answer is libertarianism. Let’s remove some useless laws so that law enforcement is less burdened

    I’m not saying that some narcistic bastard cops need to be shot with a sniper from a safe distance (so the guy could get away with it) but they should be shot by a sniper from a safe distance.

    Q: What’s the point of being a cop?
    A: (1) You get to carry a gun, (2) you get to tell people what to do and (3) they have to do what you tell them.
    Q: So what’s the use of having that much power if you don’t even get to have some fun with it once in awhile?
    A: No use at all. All the whining about it proves the police are under attack.

    I believe that’s NOT the attitude of most police. But when someone gets hurt or killed, even if you’re one of the good cops, the culture in most police departments is that you stand by your bros no matter what – just like with any gang. What’s really wrong is recruiting that doesn’t have any mechanism for screening that mentality OUT.

    If anyone seriously proposes this, there’s going to be pushback claiming there’s no good way to screen for that. Sure there is. Just visit civilization. See how they do it in countries where police brutality and police shootings are low, countries where the good cops are allowed to do their job.

    White people interpret Black colour as dangerous, menace and violence. But they are turning into more than what they are accusing us of. Shame😡

    Why would you should anyone? That should be illegal. Or at least it should be a last resort.

    what a crock of shit

    If that cop goes free I will lose my fucking mind. He accidentally shot an unarmed surrendering man while trying to shoot a suicidal mentally handicapped man who also posed no threat to him? That’s at least 3 separate crimes, including attempted murder.

    I feel like the whole Theresa May thing is like the Aung San Suu Kyi thing in Myanmar. We applauded when they where elected, but later things began to unravel…

    2 years ago: “How can you be less threatening and black? Soon they will shoot you in the grave while decomposing.” … No but they will break into your home and shoot you there.
    What the eff is happening over there? This is just getting ridiculous. Get your shit together USA and stop killing people. It’s simple- stand in front of a person, AND DONT KILL THEM.
    K, bye.
