Well, because there's a racist loony troll on this board who is talking to themselves, also in a bigger-picture sense because the PBA, I'm sorry, is in the throes of a massive tantrum because they aren't used to a Mayor saying that they aren't perfect all the time. [ Reply | More ]

Because he sent song signals that he doesn't support the cops, and does support criminals. As the Mayor of NYC, he should and could be saying that he strongly supports the police who do an incredibly difficult job, while recognizing that mistakes can and will be made, and he will work with the police to minimize mistakes. He could also be saying that he recognizes that racism exists throughout society, not just within the police force. And he could also be saying that communities of color need to pull their own socks up. [ Reply | More ]

What does "pulling your socks up" have to do with this? Really? Horrifying as all these deaths are, what is the actual relevance of "And also, along with better relations with the police, STOP USING FOOD STAMPS, BLACK PEOPLE"? [ Reply | More ]

It means "stop committing all the crime". Its not complicated. The police are assholes, sure. But mostly they are equal opportunity assholes. Some big white guy carrying a toy gun waving it around or charging a policeman would get shot as well. Just as big a problem is the criminal tendencies within certain communities that have glamorized sexism, violence and crime. BOTH are problems. Not simply one or the other. The day we (on both "sides") recognize that the problem is on both sides, is the day we can start to fix it. Until we top blaming one side or the other, we are fucked. That is why DeB is an idiot - he is one of very few people who could have risen above... yet he is stuck in taking sides. [ Reply | More ]
