Looking at recent events over the years and most recently this past weekend. I wanted to pose a question: Why do you think "rogue" police see Black Americans as such an immediate lethal threat?

This has always been the case. Modern technology has allowed us to see this happening outside of our local community.

These cops know they will have the support of the department and local elected officials. Take Phoenix for example.  The chief and mayor spent more time talking about the language than the use of force.

They do it because they know they will not be held accountable. 

We've had troops in Afghanistan since since 2001. Soldiers go outside the wire every day.  18 and 19 year old privates.  They are in fear for their lives 24/7. Rarely do they point a weapon at the wrong person. Let alone fire a round. They know they'd be held accountable.

The culture of law enforcement and the courts has to change. If judges give light sentences to the cops we need to vote them out. If the DA can't get a conviction he/she has to go.

Just the language should get the cops fired. If the mayor's secretary talked to someone like that she'd been fired.  It's a double standard.  It has to stop.

I agree with Bison and y. This has always been the culture of policing throughout history. Truth be told, it's likely better now than what it use to be. They teach this type of behavior in training, but there is a big different in how they  apply the training and it often is related to race, gender, social standing and income. This is why I advocate hiring better people. An educated, aware person should have the ability to move past their preconceived opinions, and judge a situation with as little bias as possible.

The first order should be not to escalate a situation. The robot cop mentality of the past is over. Back then folk did not know better and accepted that behavior. Smart phone has given the public a glimpse of the turth and people are not tolerating that any longer, unless of course you are y and his followers. In their eyes, law enforcement can not do any wrong. They believe you are not suppose to question a cops, and follow their orders.

Also keep in mind policing in America has become heavily militarized since 911. The days of Adam 12 are long gone. You have cops in literal MRAPS patrolling the streets and Lockheed wants return on their investment.

I saw the NBA Finals cops were in full tactical gear on the floor.Was that neccessary.That could have been on the outside but on the floor??!!

Blacks account for the majority of gun homicide victims/arestees in the US while whites account for the vast majority of non-gun homicide victims/arrestees, of the gun murder victims in the United States between 2007-2016, 57% were black, 40.6% white (including Hispanic), 1.35% Asian, 0.98% unknown race and 0.48% Native American.

Non-gun homicides, represented about 30% of total murders in the time period. Blacks were still overrepresented although only by about 2.5x their share of the general population.[55] Of the non-gun murder victims in the United States between 2007-2016, 61.5% were white (including Hispanic), 32.9% black, 2.29% Asian, 1.89% unknown race and 1.43% Native American

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_crime_in_the_United_States#Homicide

Black Americans are greatly overrepresented in terms of homicides. This puts you on edge if you are a cop because, statistically, you know where you are most likely to run into issues.

This does not excuse how american cops behave, but it puts things in perspective.

Actually it doesn't.  A white cop is more likely to be shot by a white person.

The homicide statistics are what they are.

12%->57% is statistically significant.

IMHO the homicide statistics are used to justify killing blacks.  Please explain with you can take a white man who killed several people alive but an unarmed black is often killed or at least shot?????

Because white guys bitch up whenever authority come around. You see it yourself. Next time a white person gets smart with you call them out and watch how they cower down. black men dont do it as such. Black guys will try to argue "I didnt do nothing" with a gun to their head like it changes anything. Its a cultural thing.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
