...just another WAKE UP CALL -
timely post in light of what has happened in the
past couple daze...,

two basically totally innocent black men
were murdered by insan "Killer Cops"

it's a frightening epidemic
cuz white people will be next !

there is no excuse
those cops in the last two incidents
committed murders

and they have been getting away with it FOREVER
now people have cellphone videos....

besides that - uhhh - BLM

but they seem real and legitimate to me

I'm with Skweets... It's a legitmate protest, but obviously what's gone on in Dallas is no answer.

...well Hello world - welcome to the daily drama
of America struggling with a deadly epidemic
of Alcohol - tobacco - and Firearms -
(not to mention OBESITY !!)

it's great entertainment
with the requisite "Sacrifices" along the way
the Cowboy Way

Me -?- i've seen enough
it can still shock me even (dallas)
but mostly it just disappoints me these daze

i'm a Libra - the sensitive type

and i understand how that guy (those guys)
were able to convince themslves
that this had to be done

they (he) did a pretty good job as well

the cops had it coming - there's gonna be more
more of everything

because America is Well Armed
and when i say those cops had it coming
OBVIOUSLY i don't mean those individuals
who were killed and wounded in dallas
they might have been fine upstanding individuals
who respected the individual human dignity of everyone


the Decay spreads from within
and corrupts the entire beast

The Show is Just Getting Started....

I don't know much about them to be honest. From an outside perspective I feel that there are too many people that are happy with the racial division that currently exists within American society and I feel that groups like this feed on that. The media also have a massive part to play in how they cover shootings of black people. This has a massive impact on people's perception and until that changes, it will continue to fuel the racial divide. The facts, so far this year 509 people have been killed by the police, with 123 of those being black Americans. The police are only human and they will make mistakes. They have an almost impossible job to do. I'd say they deserve our respect and if we had to do their job for just one day we would appreciate the job they. So far this year 56 police officers have died, 26 of them were killed by gunfire.

The guy is spot on. It is not about race.

And this lot really make me laugh. How the police need to put up with this crap is beyond me.

It's too domestic for me to engage with.

in all honesty i'm just glad to be white
the crap that so many black americans have to deal with is sickening

i'm not going to help anything by sitting on my computer and writing about how unjust the cops are
stuff like this is always going to happen no matter how much we complain about it

stuff like what?

And what about what the cops need to put up with. Is that not a problem?

This guy talks a lot of sense.
