Baltimore has: >black mayor >black police chief >black city council leader >50% black police force and fire department >not to mention the president of the United States is black
Where exactly is the lack of opportunity here? If you simply show up at an inner city public school and do your 30 minutes of homework you'll get all A's and colleges will be fighting each other over you in order to fill their quotas. If you apply for any government or civil service job you are placed above better qualified whites and Asians. If you don't feel like doing that, you can join the military and instantly be transported out of the ghetto and receive a free four year education (with thousands of dollars a month for living expenses). I live in the city and opportunity is literally thrown in these peoples' faces. Giant billboards for free GED programs, giant billboards for free affordable housing and first time home buyer's seminars. Free health care clinics. Free community colleges. FREE, FREE, FREE. What more do these people want? No other group of people are bombarded with these kinds of opportunities, yet they choose to do nothing and then say they're victims.
The level of entitlement is absolutely fucking mind boggling. If someone can tell me what exactly these people want, and why they're burning down stores so they can steal paper towels and fruit punch, I'd love to hear it.
You see this is the problem. 50% of police is BLACK and, what a suprise, town turned into fucking hell. Do you know ANY city who has 50% of WHITES as police and have trouble with riots? I dont think so.
>Physically fit people get to go to war >Criminals join gangs or the cops >Oppressed get to riot >Strong get to intervene >Everybody is writing their action story >Anon is sitting at home >Doing nothing with his life
You're mad because everybody uis having fun and you're not
Can you link us to a story where the cops roll up on someone completely minding their own business walking down the street and then execute them? A story where the guy didn't have 20+ prior convictions and ran from the police would be nice. Show us one story where some normal black kid with no criminal record was walking down the street and the police shot and killed him for literally no reason.
None of these "victims" were killed under any circumstances that white people haven't been killed by police too, difference is we are smart enough to call someone who got killed for resisting a dumb ass that deserved it.
The last "muh black lives matter" case that got national coverage that had any weight was Jordan Davis and that was in 2012 and the person that killed him wasn't a cop.
>>612695237 Whiteys are killed under the same circumstances all of these darkies have been killed over lately, you know why we don`t riot? because resisting/evading/hostility and general noncompliance leading to your death by a cop makes it your fault, you are 1000% in control of the scenario when you get pulled over and the cops are just reacting to your demeanor.
The last "muh black lives matter" media circlejerk that held any water was Jordan Davis in 2012, and the guy that shot him wasn`t even a cop, just a fat man who didn't like rap.
I think the monkeys would stop getting shot by cops if they'd stop breaking the fucking law in the first place and getting cops after them. They blame the cops but the only one to blame is themselves.
Especally the dumb monkeys who run after a cop tries to arrest them. In most cases they would have been released the same day if they just went quietly. But noo, the monkeys are too fucking stupid to relize this.
>>612693407 Yea rappers always say kids can't get out of the ghetto. Honestly the way things are now if you show up to school and then join the military, Bam, never have to set foot in a poor neighborhood again. The problem is because the way criminal culture is celebrated in the media most black kids get involved in drugs and gangs because they think that will make them hardcore.
I know right? I grew up with a single mother, and I'm white so I don't know if she was batshit crazy and my dad poofed or what but when I was 18 years old, 10 years back, the government refused to student loan me for college because my mother making 15k a year "made too much money".
Which I believe is code for "You're not black so you don't get shit".
>>612694076 >>612693407 It's true, the whole government of Baltimore lacks diversity. It's 95% African American. All the top positions that the mayor has selected are black too. source: http://msa.maryland.gov/msa/mdmanual/36loc/bcity/html/bcitye.html
>>612699043 No I`m civil and I understand grey areas, I`m not some edgy 17 year old faggot who confuses civil obedience with surrendering to martial law, I also recognize fighting something in the court is exponentially more productive than fighting it in the streets because you don`t feel like getting cuffed.
>>612699321 Yep, my parents also made too much money to qualify for scholarships but were too poor to send me to school. Maybe if I had not been a dumbass in high school I could have gotten academic scholarships. I fucked up and that's on me. All I can do is try to make up for it now.
>>612697005 How do you have such a low % of blacks in the bible belt? Kansas or some shit? Regardless of your anecdotal account, all of the south enjoys high rates of violent crime just like it is distinguished by poverty, obesity, low educational attainment, teen-birthrate, and just about every other negative metric you can imagine. Should've let you guys secede when you tried.
>>612699057 So what do we have >black male with multiple charges for drug dealing and some other shit >spine surgery >black guy goes right back to dealing drugs >spine fucks up in police car >black people show how much they hate the cops violent behaviour by destroying shops and cars with violent behaviour >meanwhile cops probably werent even violent itd be funny if it wasnt so mind boggingly absurd.
>>612699321 Dude. I'm 27. I incurred massive debt going to college and getting an engineering degree to better myself and to get a good job. I'm still paying for that. I received no money from my poor parents. I got no grants from gubment because I made $9k a year with my part time job. (I made too much money) I had to soak it all up in credit cards and student loans Meanwhile my black room mate, while a nice guy, got thousands of dollars every 5 months for free. He got a degree in creative writing and works at Target.
>>612700168 Because you see what running away gets you.
That`s why you avoid the thug lifestyle all together, run ins won`t happen and you won`t have to deal with death or financial raping, don`t sell pills and dress like a goon and you`ll be treated the way you present yourself.
>>612693407 They don't know the meaning of protesting or revolution or what that fat black woman has on her shirt, just like the London riots they're just using it as an excuse to steal and burn things.
I got to thinking about why the black community in the time of King and X showed so much more soldarity and discipline than today, and fucking duh it's King and X. A movement without a leader is chaos, and that's what you're seeing. But if somehow that rage were given a positive direction...
I actually think some good might eventually come of this. The real issue is victims' advocacy, particularly poor and minority victims. The issue isn't that Martin or Brown got shot, but that the police felt they could withhold information and it took a goddamn national inquiry to find out why some kid died and whether it was justified. The media is trying to re-frame it as a whites vs blacks hate crime thing because it sells well and gets everybody all riled up and bullshit like this happens. But out of this blind media-stirred rage, leaders might emerge. Leaders who understand the real problems, not the one that people are being sold. And when that happens, not only with this thug shit begin to stop, but real positive change might actually occur in the black community. And it might be the beginning of the final big push it takes to get black people out of the ghetto. The wave in the 60s got them rights, and a few aftershocks in the 80s and 90s bettered their opportunities, and finally in the '10s-'20s a wave of real, self-sustaining empowerment from within will take place. Something that changes the next generation of young blacks' image of themselves to a point that they see themselves as participants in society rather than victims of it, or adversaries.
>>612698988 >6x as many whites as blacks in the country >whites get killed by cops 2x as often >3x more likely to be killed if black >thinking that these stats are a counter-argument to complaints of unarmed blacks being shot
If we consider population, I admit we must also consider crime rate. Blacks commit a disproportionate amount of crime. That said, unarmed and/or fleeing people should not be shot under most any circumstance. Only when the cameras are off do these people strangely decide on "charging" into gunfire or "reaching for the officer's weapon." Those are just about the only excuses a cop can give to justify using lethal force on an unarmed person, and every time its not on film, that's the bullshit we hear. It's past time for bodycams on every officer.
In 2014, there were a total of 1100 reported cases of a suspect being killed while in the custody of an officer. (Source: http://www.killedbypolice.net/kbp2014.html)
In 2012, there were a total of 9,390,473 arrests made in the United States. Of those 9,390,473 arrests, 6,502,919 (69.3%) were white and 2,640,067 (28.1%) were black. (Source: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2012/crime-in-the-u.s.-2012/tables/43tabledatadecoverviewpdf)
Although data is a bit outdated, approximately 1100 dead out of 10,000,000 arrests = 0.01%
Police can be assholes, and most probably are, but they aren't killing black people left and right.
Don't be fucking stupid and run like a dumbass and then complain when the officer(s) had to chase you and tackle your ass to the ground.
>>612703950 Bodycams are not a solution, they will be an arm of the surveillance state and the government is more than happy to provide them as a solution to your problems. The real solution is making police more accountable and getting them to the point that bodycams are needless, and no technology will do that for you.
>>612700255 Even after spinal surgery, they definitely fucked him up in that cop car, they had him, they took him in, no need to beat him up, though I'm pretty sure he was mouthing them off on his way to jail which led the little Dick cops to beat him up.
>>612703950 All bodycams will do is stop cops from ever stopping or even approaching anyone in the street. They will only ever do the bare minimum, and they will only ever respond to specific radio calls, because every other encounter will open them up to insane levels of liability. If you think that's a good thing, keep in mind that in major cities, cops take thousands of illegal guns off the streets through suspect stops. It will also ensure that everyone gets a ticket every time they get pulled over, because an officer's discretion will 100% be removed.
>>612706118 >>612693407 Ever hear of anyone saying "that all black college/organization/channel/church/community needs more diversity"... didn't think so. There is no such thing as an all white anything, because someone would immediately say it needs diversity and scream racists.
No one even cares about the sub-zeroed nig anymore!!! The riots are just breeding more and more justified racists. Good white people listen up - do not hire these animals no matter what your EEO rep tells you. Also if you see a nig crossing the street braking is optional. White pride in 2015
>>612705164 I'm as wary of domestic surveillance as you are. I don't want a UK type situation where there is 2 cctv cameras on every street corner. But I can think of no alternative to bodycams that will make police honest overnight while giving them great evidence to help them convict criminals. Every week growing up my father, a defense attorney, would bring home another story of catching a cop in a lie (or a mistaken memory) under oath on the stand. Just look at Slager's case; how he shot the unarmed fleeing man in the back and then planted the taser next to his body. This shit doesn't happen only on the rare event that a bystander is filming.
Unless you can add something to your slippery-slope fallacy, I still think the benefits from the cameras vastly outweigh the privacy downsides, and that it is the only simple solution to the problem
