Way too large a radius. Beverly hills is less than 6 square miles. 15 miles away and you're opening up to most of LA.

I find zero justification for this person dying from being arrested by the police.
I do believe it happened when he was in the control of the police. They are responsible.

Some of you have posted that the majority of the protesters are not destroying property or looting, protesting is reasonable. Some of you seem to be justifying or giving a pass to the looters and arsonists. They are criminals, and should be persecuted.

Where do you think the BH police live now? Their police chief, Dave Snowden lives in Newport Beach.

My point was a ten mile radius is pretty wide. You can cover a lot of ground in ten miles.

I think many police live 30-40 and 60 miles away from the area they serve. Getting them within 10-15 miles would be an improvement. At least their kids might compete in sports with the people they serve. A young police officer that is married and has children would not want his wife and children living in a high crime district just because he worked there. Being a CA person my whole life I regularly travel 10-15 miles for shopping or entertainment. Living in Newport Beach I often go to the Mexican areas of Santa Ana for what is offered their.

of course they are responsible and criminals and should be prosecuted (i think you mean).

however, i also hold the Baltimore City government and police force responsible as well.

the worst thing we can say about this is that it's just a bunch of kids who need a wuppin' from their mommas.

Fuck you, Rand Paul.

Quote:
In discussing the causes of the violence that occurred in the wake of the 25-year-old black man's death while in police custody, the 2016 GOP presidential hopeful tied the situation to moral issues and characterized the riots as "thuggery and thievery."

"There are so many things we can talk about: the breakdown of the family structure, the lack of fathers, the lack of a moral code in our society," he said. "This isn't just a racial thing."
Rand Paul Blames 'Lack Of Fathers' For Baltimore Protests

Somehow, I doubt he said the same thing when a bunch of Kentucky students rioted when their fucking basketball team lost.

No bullshit: his son was arrested for DUI last week, and it's like the third time he's been arrested.

Those who are more concerned about a few smashed windows than the ongoing injustice need to reconsider their position and take a long hard look at themselves.

Also, whilst I agree with those saying police brutality is a very vital issue to address, it's worth examining the role of the police in society in general.

The Paul's have a long history of racism in their history. Not surprising at all...

Indeed, doesn't Ron Paul have (or did have) white supremacist links?
