[ - ] "You can graduate from high school in this country without taking a single class that focuses on history and race. A high school diploma can be earned without any knowledge of slave patrols, black codes, the KKK, race riots, lynching, sundown towns, the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, redlining, white flight, freedom riders and mass incarceration. This educational void has consequences for law enforcement, especially when we consider that there is little to temper the widespread media images that link black skin and crime. These images are on daily display in the news, morning and evening. What’s more, because of segregation patterns in housing, most whites do not have substantive daily interactions with blacks — they “learn” about blacks through the media. In one study, police and civilians participating in video simulations were more likely to associate blacks with criminality. In another study, which also used video simulations, participants were more likely to "see" weapons in the hands of blacks (when none existed) and more likely to shoot black suspects than white suspects (and to shoot them more quickly).

[ - ] Crazy people kill other people. They usually start with their family and then try to murder the police who come to respond to the scene. Sometimes they are successful. They have crazy agendas that make no senses and are usually bastardize current events and twist them to their own vile needs. Cops are by far a good bunch but there are a few that have become drunk on power and see every person as a potential perpetrator. Add in their own biases and prejudices, it makes for a huge mess. There aren't a roaming group of cop killers and there isn't a huge group of cops looking to murder people. We all need to take a step back, a big breathe and try to address the problems. 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

This is true. The average black man in New York is more than ten times as likely to murder than the average white. But yet liberal moms justify this murder as "legacy of slavery" [ Reply | More ]

Even in places that never had slavery, blacks murder more than Asians. Rhodesia had a benevolent government and a good economy and a low murder rate, but liberals handed the government control to blacks and now it is a hell hole [ Reply | More ]

you're despicable. that shooting will now shut down any momentum for change. i'm not saying the police union was happy about it, but it sure will help their side. nobody with concerns about police tactics would welcome this, first and foremost because innocent police officers got killed, and a distant second because it will (and has been) exploited to police advantage.

I'm in a field that generally fails to properly train young people and abuses them to no end. Then it takes them 10 years to figure out the pay sucks and there's no glory in it. I'd probably feel really sorry for the 24-yr. old me. The 40-yr. me insists on being respectful to young employees and a good mentor. I've gotten a shit ton of side-eye for this from the older guard, since that's their underpaid slave work force. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] just talked to my friend, a copy on Staten Island for 20 years, and someone whose policing I've always respected. Even in the bad old days when he was working Harlem subways at night, he showed good common sense, remarkable restraint, and never had to shoot or otherwise kill anybody. His take: Officer Pantaleone's arrest was 100 percent by the book, and he (my frien) himself would have done the same thing. Would have wrapped his arm around the guy's neck, and in fact has done it, and not stopped when the person said things like "I can't breathe." He said the police already showed restraint by not tazering the guy (they have been asked not to do this to obese people because it could give them heart failure). My take: we get the police force we allow. I don't in any way agree that five cops in no danger whatsever had to resort to this level of violence to put a man in cuffs, just becasue this was the easiest and quickest way to make it happen. But this behavior is clearly common, and allowed. That's why it would be more effective for us as a society to pressure elected officials and the NYPD to train cops to use this level of aggression only when there's a threat. We need to make our expectations of the police clear. Otherwise they will carry on doing what's easiest and best for them. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Chokeholds should not be used by the police, and police should recognize and support the reasons for this. You don't even have the correct name for the police officer. Officer Pantaleo, one of the most active cops on Staten Island, has made 279 criminal arrests since 2007. Of these, only 24 were for felonies. Of the misdemeanors, two thirds were dismissed or reduced to disorderly conduct--an offense similar to a speeding ticket. http://www.wnyc.org/story/face-broken-windows/ Meanwhile, Staten Island has the most serious heroin and drug abuse problem in the city.

Actually, Energy is NOT a huge part of the US economy. And yes many of those producers who have balance sheets on the debt side will in fact go belly up...it's called capitalism, they will be scooped up by PE and HF. The major producers who aren't as distressed can ride out the storm. You will not see ExxonMobil go belly up, so don't worry. [ Reply | More ]
