When, oh when will you white people put a stop to this shit? It won't stop until you white people demand that it does....

The officer is charged with murder only because of this video:

L just noted on Facebook about Ramsey Orta whom the police evidently GOT for filming Garner's murder-by-police.

At the very least, the mostly-white media at least is publicizing some of these cases, which is essential to turning the great tide of inertia and uncaring.

It'll stop when the grandchildren of Huey Newton, Malcom X, along w responsible whites, and w a new strategy, rise.

@Myriad ; The media isn't going anywhere near as far as it must to bring this practice to an end...The ho-hum, matter-of-fact, reporting of this,, and incidents like it,
is far too tepid and blase to stir and motivate a largely apathetic white population/audience....

@JS; If black cops were routinely killing unarmed white people, there would be an immediate tectonic shift in law enforcement policy, practice, and procedure re the use of firearms or deadly force.

@JW; This is about white people ceasing to be apathetic and complacent...The grandchildren of Huey and Malcolm may devise a strategy, but it MUST be white people carrying it out...

Oh, I fully understand your outrage over the brutal murders this year of dozens of people of color by predominately white,  militarized police officers, Ron.

I'm just curious where all of this outrage was when TENS OF THOUSANDS of people of color were murdered or injured (including thousands of children) by predominately white, militarized Israelis (who, btw, trained many of the white, militarized police in "tactics")?  

Did I miss your demands that they put an end to their shit too?

This town has waited a long time for a top notch black reporter to rise to the top of the food chain to disseminate "news" on the morning show.

He just announced "As you can see , the officer shot the fleeing man in the back."

From the kitchen, nothing in the report had a sound to it at all that would have raised more ire than the glitzy weather lady saying a windy storm is on the way.

The news is written and approved/edited by white people.

Nobody knows what to do it appears, and specious calls to clean up the back yard in other lands ring hollow.

@SBA; The geopolitical conflicts that occur re real estate and resources bare little relationship to the shit that's happening here re the killing of black people by police solely because of the color of their skin ....Your attempt to change focus here is disingenuous...If you're not part of the solution you ARE the problem...

My lament places the onus squarely on YOU WHITE PEOPLE. to bring this shit to halt...

You, Amy, don't understand at all what is involved and what is at stake here....And you won't until the cops pull you over for no reason whatsoever and you MUST fear for your life during the encounter purely because of the color of your skin...

That is, of course, unless you were victimized by some Israeli trained cop when you got stopped for driving while white....
