Good cops, bad cops, good Doctors, bad Doctors, good Nurses, bad Nurses, good Preachers, bad Preachers, good Government, bad Government, good Parent, bad Parents and should I go on?

We as a community can be better than that, we can share love, yeah???

All that has been said above is true...along with the fact that a gun in itself is no danger..until it is put into the hands of someone prepared to use it . Take either one outta the equation and we would have a safer world

There are two minorities. One is CNN the other Fox News and they fight like crazy on a daily basis.

As such there will never be peace over there, because both sides refuse to listen to the other.

It's that simple.

Well, is it new ? No. Since i was in school , i heard over and over again about these kind of happenings in the USA.
Raping, murderer aso.....
It is the worse side of the USA.
But what happened these days to the black people is not only a shame but a real cruel horror.
The dimension of racism is incredible. It was a question of time , when the black people are defending theirselfs.
Yesterday, we saw a video in the TV stations of a black woman in her car, she was streaming it into the internet, meanwhile a cop was holding a gun into her car, while her husband was lying near dead , full with blood on the seat next to her. She was completely terrified and her husband lost blood. The cop still hold his gun into the car. He wasnt inpressed that the man was seriously wounded. He died , later on .
This is shocking. No excuses. Just because of an traffic check. Just because the black man tried to pull out his drivers license out of his jacket. The seemed to be highly out of control, being afraid that the man may would get his gun instead of the drivers license.
What else must happen that the US forbid weapons for the citizens ?
How many people must die ?

I also watched a video yesterday of a man dying in his car seat while his girlfriend kept her hands on the steering wheel and it was sickening and sad. But the video I saw started after the shooting took place so I dunno what prompted that action, if anything. I'm not defending one side or the other, just saying that all the story isn't known, at least to me.

Yes that was the video but the video makes the officer look like a paranoid nerd who should not join the police force at the first place because he can't handle the pressure and got scared way too early. Why did I say that? Because the person who was keeping the atmosphere calm was the girl when the officer was not even remotely trying to calm the situation. The girlfriend of the person shot dead must be given credit the way she was trying to diffuse the situation especially when her little kid was at the back of the car. Normally it is the woman who gets hysterical but in this case it was the male office who was bordering hysterical. The male officer is probably a nerd who thinks all black guys are tough gangsters and became paranoid when the guy said he had a license to carry firearms and then the male office shot him 5.....not one, not twice, not thrice but five times when the guy slowly proceeded to take out his wallet intending to show his firearm license. Here is the video you judge for yourself if nerds are allowed to join the police force: *Content removed*

What the video shows is the girlfriend relatively calmly relating what happened just prior to her beginning to film, while the police officer continued to freak out over what he'd just done. He murdered a man for no reason. And now he gets to be on paid administrative leave, even though we've all seen the aftermath of what he did.

I also have relatives in law enforcement. My uncle was Deputy Chief before he recently retired. My brother is a Captain. I have other relatives on the police force. So yesterday when I read that police officers were murdered during a peaceful demonstration, that was another moment where I burst into tears. I feel exhausted after crying all these days in a row. I feel emotionally drained. I feel fearful for my husband and brothers and nephews an cousins and countless others who could be pulled over for a routine traffic stop and end up dead. I am fearful for my brother and other relatives on the police force who could end up dead because someone only sees the uniform that they wear, and not what's in their hearts. I am sickened and heartbroken.

Best thing I heard about this was less than half an hour ago by a black lady contributor on a Fox News Panel who said, she was tired of The Democrats, in particular telling people with opposite views to theirs to look into their souls before they speak and formulate their opinions. She wen on to say (and correctly I might add) that they (Democrat Leaders) need to stop ad understand how their policies have created the situation we have today. The left bash the right the right bash the left but, till they listen to each other, nothing but nothing but nothing will change.

I think the nail has been hit on the head here.
Nations...governments....regimes throughout history are responsible for putting in place the conditions which have led to some of the aweful situations and injustices we are living with today. ..and no doubt history will show that the actions of our leaders today will lead henceforth to other as yet unforseen circumstances which will cause hardship and despair. In my view most people are in agreement about what a civilised society should be like...
To have adequate affordable (if not free as here in uk) health care available at point of need..for the elderly to be cared for..to be able to walk safely in our streets..all these things and more.
So why does this not happen.....
It comes down to three things in my mind...
Greed...money...and the need for power..
Things will only change when those who are elected to represent us realise it is they who serve US....not the other way around...and that we are listened to...and that promises made are delivered upon

Political discussions about governments, parties, etc., are not allowed on SingSnap. If that line of dialogue continues, I will have to remove the thread

WhIle I understand some may consider them closely algined, you'll have to save that line of thought for another website.

Discussion of recent news events is fine and thus far has been reasonably civil. Thank you for that.

How do you kno her dad is white? And you kno what ImaChristian2 is right. If a cop tells you to keep your hands up you do that if they tell you to get to the ground you do that. You dont make no moves because you do exactly as cop order you to do.

Now all we kno is the lady say in that video that the cop told them get their hand up and then he ask the man to get his wallet. The cop tho was yelling as the guy was sittin there dieing why did he have to reach for it so likely the cop knew this guy had a gun and license to carry.

Cops wear cams now and if it comes to be that cop asked him to reach for his license and then he killed that man while he was doing what he ask him to do then that pig should go to prison for murder.

But we dont kno all the story. I kno they found weed in the car thats one negative right there dont have weed in your car.

This happens all the time even to white ppl they dont talk bout it on the news but it happens lots cops shoot innocent ppl it just dont make the news. It dont only happen to african americans thats why when they say on news blacklivesmatter nahhh it should be all lives matter. Muslim. African American. White. Whatever all lives matter.

If that was me and cop told me get your hands up and dont move and then he ask me to go for my ID knowin that I have a license to carry I would say to the cop with respect sir for my safety I want you to search me.

Short and simple the girl say the cop asked him to go for his ID. Cop have a different story sayin he told the man not to reach for it. We dont kno the full story.

I'm struggling to keep up with this thread lol and the news on that horrible incident.

At first it was reported the cop made him pull over because of a broken rear lamp. Then today it was reported the cop said he was pulled over because he matched the description of a suspect who committed an armed burglary.

The world's never going to get on because there are lies everywhere and everyone want's it there way which in itself kind of means that globalisation is a failed experiment
