Akai was shot in a dark hallway in an area of drug deals.

Philando looked like a robbery suspect, and the officer approached with an unholstered gun. He shot after the man reached his hands up in the car.

Even if they were profiled, I wouldnt presume the cop looked down on them to justify the shooting. Overusing racist is vitriolic: profiling is natural. It is unnatural to see a man and condemn him to subhuman levels. The officer in the second was screaming f bombs after he shot. He wasn't looking to kill somebody.

Third, dont risk not obeying commands, and make every action with a verbal headsup and with permission. Male sure the officer knows hes in control of the situation. Im sick of these trap videos (tangent alert).

it kinda was racism. they assumed they were a threat based on the color of their skin or the skin color of their neighborhood, despite them doing absolutely nothing wrong. they died because they were black.

They both seem like high-stress accidents. Bad actions, but not racist.

What instances are you talking about?

like the guy who got shot for informing the officer about his carry license? or the guy who walked out of his apartment and got shot?

we are talking about innocent people. collective punishment is not justice.

1. not every crime deserves the death sentence, especially when people are not resisting

2. many of the people shot commited no crime.

this is not justice, you pretty much are saying that their lives do not matter, even without saying those exact words.

At the same time overrepresent themselves with crime. So they choose to commit more crimes and riot.

It isn't that common that somebody is shot for no reason.

I didn't say they openly say they don't matter. I said they refuse to say that they do matter at a time when unarmed citizens who all happen to be black are needlessly and consistently being killed by authority figures.

not if the prosecutor misuses the grand jury then it's not the same. the prosecutor works closely with the police and perhaps a special prosecutor should be used in cases involving the police to avoid a conflict of interest.

regardless, the main issue is refusal of large segments of the population to even say that their lives matter.

Those cops are sent to a grand jury, and if there is sufficient evidence to go to trial, they do.

anti abortion activism*

and abortion rights activism attracts psychos who murder people in abortion clinics. should we delegitimize the fetal rights movement as well because it attracts a handful of opportunistic psychos?

maybe if we would just tell them that their lives do matter, and hold the individual cops who murder in cold blood accountable they wouldn't need to even have a movement.

The black lives matter movement is only lacking the love of God, which makes it not of God.

Nemiroff nobody is against that. They attract looters, rioters, and have no regard for truth.

it's not so much rights as "please stop shooting us"

it's sad that such a request is so controversial to begin with.
