    "All of my realizations came to this conclusion. Black Lives do not matter to most black people. Only the lives that make the national news matter to them. Only the lives that are taken at the hands of cops or white people, matter. The other thousands of lives lost, the other black souls that I along with every cop, have seen taken at the hands of other blacks, do not matter. Their deaths are unnoticed, accepted as the “norm”, and swept underneath the rug by the very people who claim and post “black lives matter”. I realized that this country is full of ignorance, where an educated individual will watch the ratings-driven news media, and watch a couple YouTube video clips, and then come to the conclusion that they have all the knowledge they need to have in order to know what it feels like to have a bullet proof vest as part of your office equipment, “Stay Alive” as part of your daily to do list, and having insurance for your health insurance because of the high rate of death in your profession. They watch a couple videos and then they magically know in 2 minutes 35 seconds, how you are supposed to handle a violent encounter, which took you 6 months of Academy training, 2 – 3 months of field training, and countless years of blood, sweat, tears and broken bones experiencing violent encounters and fine tuning your execution of the Use of Force Continuum."

    • Being a cop is tough, being a black cop is insane. No respect from anyone._niko
    • well you gotta change it from the top some how.pango
    • wow, a whole 9 months of training.fooler
    • shhh... this would only help display the true shallowness of humans and actual selfish greediness ... no one wants that. they want to think of themselves anddeathboy
    • selfish acts as righteousdeathboy
    • as if blm was only an issue of police violence. it‘s clearly more than that.uan
    • what is it exactly uan?deathboy
    • how much money raised and put forth into what efforts? are these efforts merely PR and encouraging continuing dialogue to remember or serve a real purpose?deathboy
    • because besides a slogan that encompass any emotional trigger there is nothing. its vaporware.deathboy
    • it's about freedom.uan
    • ...oh ok.. can u explain further, because freedom is just a word. free to do what? what freedoms in comparison to existing freedoms?deathboy
    • is there a freedom blacks don't have that white people have? I actually believe they have more legal freedom considering civil rights movementdeathboy
    • personally me im all about freedom. i always support freedom. for anyone. nothing about this is about freedom except from personal responsibility and consequencdeathboy
    • but explain the freedomdeathboy
    • growing up and living in fear of repression (or in this case fear of death by authority) is opposed to freedom.uan
    • can i grow up in fear of oppression and strongly hate the bernie sanders socialist types? Historically death among the types is the greatest.deathboy
    • i can have that fear as equal as anyone elses fear. so again exactly what do you mean?deathboy
    • what freedom is it about? because if u base it on "Fear" that is quite universal.deathboy
    • FUCK OFF DEATHBOYmonospaced
    • The fact anything has to be explained and you fail or choose not to understand is exactly the problem. You are a helpless hopeless piece of human garbage.monospaced
    • This guy is framing it as cops doing their best and I'm sure many are...but what about over-militarization of the police??yuekit
    • Police bringing military weapons and tactics to the streets, what outcome did people expect? Unless you can look critically at the overall situation not much isyuekit
    • going to be solved.yuekit
    • military weapons and tactics... exactly what are those? and what would u replace them with?deathboy
    • and let uan answer if he can. he clearly is missing shit in his storydeathboy
    • here's how to deescalate protests. but last few days we saw overwhelmingly the opposites.pango
    • https://opentextbc.c…pango
    • i think that actually escalates it. because the idea of protest in law is static. the protests are faced are evolved manifestations.deathboy
    • thinks protestors are protestors and what not. the idea a pamphlet solves and shows the way is ludicrious. if the case and opportunists have he same pamphletdeathboy
    • decide to game it. what then?deathboy
    • Can you read your own sentence? Would you like to rewrite them?pango
    • LOLpango
