    There is a difference from saying they should out of respect and forcing someone to.

    I'd love to see this video of someone respecting the law and being shot for it, link?

    Judge Dredd? way to skew things all out of proportion.

    You do realize you're referencing the revolutionary WAR, right?

    It's not like cops are walking up to random black men, and shooting them cause they're black. They're interacting, in these cases, with mostly career criminals, who are being non-compliant and/or aggressive. Being unarmed isn't a defense if you're being aggressive and/or acting like you have a weapon.

    No, someone is arguing that an owner has the right to sit them. That doesn't take away their right to do their protest.

    exactly, what is he doing to resolve the issue? Is he going out and helping out in these areas? Is he telling them if they work hard they can do things with their lives?

    Being aggressive is not a reason to be shot dead. Punishment must fit the crime.

    Black people are targeted by the police all the time. Not for shooting, but for "fitting the description". Bet there'd be a lot less run ins if the cops weren't unfairly targeting them.

    And look, I've seen this kind of institutional racism with my own two eyes. My black friends got pulled over damn near weekly for nothing more than DWB.

    Yep.

    How can one truly look at this and come to the conclusion someone points a gun at you and fires based on your skin color.

    It's mind-boggling and social media has done nothing but fuel this fire.

    For example someone from ESPN.com wrote an article asking "why" was Cam allowed to be hit in the head at night. That insinuation is going to provoke more racial talk and divide yet the world wide leader in sports just can't help themselves.
