About the cops that were murdered...why is it that

When a black person is taken down by cops-its considered a hate act or excessive force and people like Jesse Jackson come out of the wood work wanting "change".....but when this black guy comes out and murders 4 cops doing their jobs protecting the community-where are these people crying out for change within their own community??

Why can't they try to change their way of life? Why is it that when it only negatively impacts them-they speak out but with this-this seems to be no big deal for their community and the only ones feeling the impact is the police department and their families....WHY???

  • Has anyone seen the ACLU investigate this as a hate crime against the police officers?


    Why is it that Because of an incident (Osacar Grant) the entire community is ENTITLED to go against police officers? And none of the Civil Liberties Spokes people are standing up for the cops and calling for the citizens to BEHAVE?


    Why is it that even though California has already banned firearms mislabeled as “assault weapons', wanted criminals STILL get a hold of them? (which makes it a Federal Crime) Perhaps gun bans DO NOT WORK?


     Why is it that the State of California is MORE INTERESTED in the numbers and NOT the safety of law abiding citizens? The state could save $803 million to $906 million annually if it were to reduce its prison population. So they are looking at releasing 55,000 inmates over the next 3 years.

  • It's not only about white or black


    .Yesterday white policemen stopped us for no reason.We were driving in highway and somebody almost hit us from emerging line. And guess what who he stopped- us because we didn't speed up to let the other car in . Then he said our car windows tint is too dark.He didn't give my husband any ticket.We are Caucasian family.

  • There should always be some sort of outraged when a police officer is hot in the line of duty, Regardless of the officer's race. There are black, white, Hispanic officers getting shot in the states. The outraged shouldn't be about the officer or the shooter's rage but rather about our law enforcement officers getting shot.

    I totally agree with you. When an officer gets shot it should never be about race the public outraged should be about loosing our officers who put their life in the line everyday. OP it is really sad that so very few care when officers get killed. there is never any protest when a black or Hispanic officer gets killed either.

  • Did you watch Glenn Beck last night. This man is like so many. He lost his job, he was newly released from the prison. Why caue Cali. decided that a few hundred more rapes and murders were nothing just to save some money for the budget. They need to cut down on helping illegal immigrants. That would def. balalnce their budgets. This kind of thing though sadly is going to be the norm as more people loose thier jobs and food prices and gas prices keep rising.

    Sorry I hate the excuses made for criminals. Cali did not cause this as crappy as a state they are this guys murdered people because he is a vile and evil human being. The blame is only on him. This is part of the problem we want to assign blame on everyone but the criminal especially if they are black.

  • The point of the question is about the fact that people like Jesse Jackson come out wanting "change" when the issue is reversed. But where is he and others when people in their community are murdering those who sacrific their lives to protect them..

    If they want to cry so much about change-why don't they change the way that some young black men choose to live their lives-help them-rather than blaming everything on the race matter?
