Due to all these racist shootings and situations where African-Americans have been harassed and discriminated against by these white cops, laws should be passed prohibiting white police from detaining, arresting, and generally dealing with African-Americans without a officer-of-color being present. African-Americans have been victimized by this racist system and are often forced into situations where they commit crimes at a disproportionate rate. Given their terrible track record, If a white cop responds to a violent crime, such as an armed robbery, and the suspect is an African-American, the white cop can't be trusted to respond with a reasonable level of force and should therefore not engage. Remember, the minority "suspect" is a victim of systematic racism.

Furthermore, African-Americans should be compensated for all they've had to endure in this country. Police should be required to use more discretion in dealing with African-Americans and they should be more lenient in regards to certain petty "crimes", especially when a white person is the supposed "victim." African-Americans have been victimized by this racist white system for 100s of years so some "payback" might be in order.

African-Americans also deserve financial compensation for all they've endured. I'm all for tax breaks and other entitlements for minority groups. White privilege is a reality and these racist white right wingers and Trump supporters need to pay up.

So fight racism with segregation? That's just as ignorant as the problem itself.

If you're not being sarcastic, you're bonkers.

We should let African Americans get away with crimes and victimize white people because of what went on 150 years ago?

And white police have to let African Americans get away with crime because of a few examples of misused force?

So basically you're suggesting lawlessness, but only for African Americans?

That'll restore harmony in the country.

Speaking as someone who is favor of reparations and ending mass incarceration and the War on Drugs and massively reforming our criminal justice system, allowing certain people to get away with crimes is a horrible idea.

Eh, you'd be surprised. The salary in San Francisco is contractually obligated to be the second-highest in the nation (usually right behind NYC's), so they could very well afford to live in San Francisco and even purchase a home.

You really are detached aren't you? Just looking at the average police salary of 7 years served and you can barely afford rent in the city.

Hell, my software engineering friends who started at $120k/year in San Francisco can't foresee a time when they'll be able to buy houses there.

I'm so jealous of any type of engineer who starts north of 90, even location adjusted.

Lolz

First off, the NYPD doesn't even have the highest paid police officers within the New York Metropolitan Area, by a long shot. So that's just plain wrong.

Starting salary is $42k. After differential and OT maybe they're bringing home 50k.

By year 5 the salary for the rank and file is 78k, or 88-90k after OT/diff, or just enough to pay for a shitty one bedroom.

There's a reason why so many cops live just outside of the city limits, and why many double their hours with overtime (great way to keep them fresh!)
