Ferguson...New York... Get over it!

Would they be rioting if the officer that killed the victim was black? They keep pressing "it was a white cop." It could have been ANY cop and would the outcome, or the community's response be any different?

Or if the victim had been white? Would they still be up in arms?

Reality is most cops are white...  Want to change that? have more blacks become cops.

Reality *here* (where I live, and in those listed places).. the majority of criminals are black.

It is just a matter of numbers not hate or profiling. If you wouldn't put yourself in the situation (robbing convenience stores and selling illegal cigarettes or whatever... ) then you ouldn't be dealing with the police!

Did you watch the video of the NYC officer putting Eric Garner in a chokehold? The man wasn't even doing anything! Eric had just broken up a fight that happened... He was the good guy. He was asking the officers why they were treating him so badly when out of nowhere, he was put in a chokehold! Did you know that chokeholds have been BANNED by the NYPD, and yet that asshole officer STILL was not indicted?!?! These officers are not being held accountable and that should scare anyone regardless of race, color, gender, etc. Watch the video! Then come back on here and say they need to chill out!!

A cop doesn't know what he's up against when he attempts to arrest somebody, and when the person shows resistance to the cop, the cop has to act on that. Cops don't know the persons intentions or personality when the try to arrest them so its always in the best interest of the person to give up peacefully until the cops or judge can work things out for you. When you fight the cops, the cops will win. Happens every time.

My issue is that they keep saying "white cop kills black suspect" and making it all about race. Here, the news said NOtHING about the NYPD banning the choke hold, or excessive use of force until one tiny commment, almost an afterthought, at the end.

If it had been a hispanic officer or a white victim. would we still be hearing about it?  I doubt it.

Personally, yes, the system needs to change and in the NYPD case, there will be local charges I am sure.
