When is the March for Delois Brown?
If you cared, you'd know about the Mother's Day Walk for Peace, but you don't care and were just trying to score some cheap, meaningless points. Congratulations.
That describes the majority of commenters on this page. You only seem to point out the individuals you disagree with
...when people call him out. Seems reasonable to me.
It is his website after all, if you don't like it, the little X in the top corner of the page will help you out.
The police chief and the officer resigned, the latter has charges brought against her. What justice is missing so far?
Did you miss the part where people keep getting murdered by the police? Justice would be for that to stop happening.
Majority of the black people that live in the hood are outstanding citizens just like you. It’s a few bad ones just like how the police say they have a few bad ones. If you don’t know one, you’re part of the problem. America is the greatest nation and in 2021, we’re still dealing with race issues. It’s straight up SAD.
What justice is missing so far?
There is a rough justice meted out when you look at a person and your triggers signal that they're dangerous -- even though unarmed -- and therefore deadly force is acceptable. The goal is not so much to send police to prison for killing unarmed Black people, as it is for police to stop killing them.
Not defending the cop but don’t think she intended to use deadly force. If anything she got scared and confused her taser with her gun. Incompetent and rightfully charged with involuntary manslaughter but not intentional in the use of deadly force.
If anything she got scared and confused her taser with her gun.
Why the hell was she looking to tase someone during a minor traffic stop?
Because they found out he had an outstanding warrant on an illegal gun possession charge and fleeing a peace officer.
OK, he had an outstanding warrant - but, to my limited understanding, use of force is supposed to be governed by the current situation, not by something alleged to have happened in the past. Am I wrong?
If a 27 year veteran of the force can't tell the difference between a taser and a glock, then maybe cops shouldn't have guns.
... was mystified as to how one could make such a mistake:
"And not familiar with your fancy modern guns and tasers. I became scared. Frightened even!"
C'mon, man. She trains other cops.
It wasnt too long ago that those 3 things wouldn’t have happened. Long road ahead for real justice.
