I answered your question, WHITE GUY, yes 100% I would support, I would be taking the picture and sending it to the police last night
And if this innocent person was harmed or killed because some good Samaritan saw him on twitter, still responsible? I wouldn't want you as my police commissioner. They wouldn't have done this in the day before social media, I'm not sure that just because the access to info is quicker that we need to throw out good police work.

In the heat of the moment, I can see why they posted that picture. Remembering Boston, I didn't retweet it because I didn't want to endanger a possibly innocent man. Turns out, he was innocent. I think after that Dallas PD should have retracted the tweet, deleted it and issue an apology.

I don't disagree.

My concern -- aside from the obvious one of police shooting first, asking questions later when it comes to black men -- is what this will do to policing. It's a tough job. It's also one they signed up for. The violence has always happened, it's the cameras that are new. I think the cameras are a good thing. However, it's not so much the anti-police messages you seem to hear in the BLM movement and more that I fear this will discourage good people from going into policing, and prevent police from doing necessary work. The crime rate in Baltimore has shot up over the past year. We have reports in DC that our "vice squads" -- plainclothes cops who used to rush sidewalk craps games that often ended in violence -- are no more. Now, it could be said that this kind of aggressive policing bred distrust, anger, and fear in certain communities. You could also say that, yes, but the crime rate has fallen. These squads may have cracked some skulls, so to speak, but they pounced on bad people. The murder rate has plummeted in DC the past 20 years. And who is/was getting murdered? Generally, young black males.

So. The hard choice could be that if the cops pull back and police less and less aggressively, we may see our murder rates rise. And the vast majority of the people getting murdered are black males.

What's the answer?

Aside from reducing poverty. Obviously we can do that because Mitt Romney might have to pay more in taxes.
There's no may... it will happen. We're already seeing a turn in New York. Small at first, "quality of life" issues, if you will. A rash of slashings and stabbings on the subway. Things of that nature. But it will only increase.

As long as we continue to argue over the superficial and ignore the more deep rooted causes or poverty and institutional racism this will continue to be a fucked up roller coaster.

Funny, that's my reaction to 75% of your posts.

Can I add a square.?

More blacks die from natural causes than from police, and no one ever says anything about that.

You're never too old to open your eyes. But then again he's supporting one of the most openly racist candidate my generation has seen, so it's more of a squint.

Maybe this is his way of getting the Orange one to pick him as VP. "See, I like the Blacks too!".

Idk, he might lose him votes, and the math isn't exactly on his side.

In a very weird way, it's comforting looking at the NRA's FB comments. They're calling out the NRA for not speaking out about Castile and Sterling.
