MILWAUKEE (AP) In the course of 15 months and in the space of one city block, Milwaukee police twice encountered two suspects they believed were armed.

One was black; one was white.

One was in fact unarmed; one had a gun.

One was shot; one was not.

That the black man was the one who was shot though he had no weapon might come as little surprise at a time when police shootings involving black men seem commonplace nationally.

2. It doesn't "seem" automatic. It IS automatic.

 

Not digging at you for you post at all. It's a great question to have posed.

Just taking it to the logical end.

4. They are trained to kill blacks

There was one big example that made the national news a couple years ago - a National Guard member went to a gun range with her fellow soldiers for routine training and discovered the local N. Miami police had been using mug shots of nothing but black men for their sniper training, where the picture of one of the mugshots was her brother -



When departments have their LOE keep training and training and training to shoot only people of color, they are conditioned to do it and it becomes very easy to do in real life when they "feel threatened".

It boggles my mind why the hell there isn't more outrage about how they go about training and the bullshit excuses being "well that's who they encounter every day" (meaning even if someone is innocent, they will be subject to on-the-spot execution because mindless conditioned police are brainwashed to shoot black people).

3. This makes me so sad and so angry at the same time!

With all the attention being brought to this, how is it still going on. I guess the attention is only reaching the people who are open to hearing it.
