How many more unarmed blacks need be shot by white cops before somebody perhaps takes a closer look at racism in US police forces.

Has there been something released determining that this shooting was racially motivated? What happened to Mr. Scott appears to be an indefensible case of murder, however immedtiaely jumping to the conclusion that his death was the result of a racist police force seems a bit premature.

Sure. Maybe he just wanted to kill somebody. But naivete does run deep.

I could suggest something a little more helpful be done than simply tuning into the friggin hockey game. How many more unarmed blacks need be shot by white cops before somebody perhaps takes a closer look at racism in US police forces.

Unarmed means nothing. Michael Brown was unarmed and deserved to be shot. This particular person was unarmed and didn't dserve to be shot at all.

Not at all. In fact most shootings aren't racially motivated. It's hard for people to imagine, but some people can act terribly wrong, without being racist. But we have thought police in this forum. They can read minds. So they know the exact intent of every incident.

You do realize how you just made a complete and utter contradiction, in classic Shady style...

Another entry to the Law and Order thread I created. You are correct, there are lots of examples like this out there.

Right, there are literally dozens, in a country of 350 million people, where there are tens of thousands of police interactions with the public every day.

Why was this guy running from police? If he didn't run he wouldnt have been shot. I think people should look at the victim. He has responsibility too.

Well after all he did have a burned out tail light. You cant have people driving around with that sort of thing going on. I agree, if you cant keep your damn tail lights working properly, and you are black, you need to be shot and killed.

But he's dead.

Police can only shoot you in the back for running away if they believe you pose a significant risk to people's safety.

Oh ... did you see how the cop put the taser near the body so he could lie and say he was in danger?

And the cop's been fired and charged with murder.
