All lives matter!

Last edited Thu Dec 4, 2014, 05:43 PM - Edit history (1)

We have groups of mentally ill, racist, rapist and gang member types in the ranks of police departments all around the country MURDERING citizens with impunity. It doesn't matter what your race or gender is, these people are equal opportunity killers who are being protected by the very institutions who are supposed to be protecting US from THEM.

This has to stop NOW!



Michael Nida - Unarmed shot multiple times in the back by a downey cop after he tried to run away



Douglas Zerby - Cops snuck up on him and blew him away without warning just because he was holding a water nozzle.



John Winkler - Stabbed then gunned down by deputies as he was trying to flee his attacker



Frank Mendoza - Gunned down by deputies as he was trying to flee an armed parolee that had just broke into his home



Brian Beaird - Gunned down by LAPD cops as he was surrendering with his hands up.



Jose de la Trinidad - Unarmed and shot 7 times in the back by deputies



Jason Conoscenti - Unarmed, shot multiple times in the back as he was running away. His murder was captured on video.





Levar Edward Jones - Gunned down as he was getting his ID. Thankfully he survived unlike the other cases.



Kelly Thomas - Unarmed, beaten and strangled to death as he cried out for his Dad. The two cops who did it were found not guilty.



Hans Kevin Arellano - Unarmed, shot in the chest after calling a female officer a bitch. His killing was captured on video.

Just to name a few...



































ALL LIVES MATTER!

Police brutality is out of control.

2. A friend who was a police officer warned me about this in the late 1980's.

Police rage and violence are out of control.

How are we going fix this problem and repair the damage done?

3. I agree that all lives matter and that police abuse can extend beyond just race.

 

And I agree that it sucks.

But race is affected first.

4. Why does it have to be one or the other ? nobody says there aren't any other cases where cops

are abusive towards non minorities.

but to deny race plays a part in many of the cases doesn't help in dealing with the problem.

i don't know why people get so bothered when race is brought up .

two high profile cases of cops getting away with murder are an Egregious example of Blacks being treated differently than whites.. as evidenced by..

Eric Garner's racist killer Daniel Pantaleo, had at least 2 civil rights lawsuits against him. Didn't matter.

I think we all know what a racist, sociopathic, psychopath Darren Willson is.. "the hardest thing he's ever done is resign from the PD."

8. If that's the case, then would not the demographics of police shooting victims be somewhat equal?

"these people are equal opportunity killers..."

If that's the case, then would not the demographics of police shooting victims across the board be somewhat equal?

9. Except for 4 out of 24 cases, no other cops on this list have been charged & ZERO have served time.

 

The killers of Michael Nida, Douglas Zerby, John Winkler, Frank Mendoza, Brian Beaird, Timothy Mitchell, Jose de la Trinidad, John Crawford III and Jason Conoscenti are still employed.

Just something to think about.
