The questioning of police force can be entirely subjective to the individual mentality, values and actions of the policeman that is using police force against someone or a particular race/group of people.

In countries where the police is underfunded (Italy for example), there is a less prevalence of hate crimes, police force against the people and power abuse from law enforcement. Consequently, most serious crimes are seldom resolved or fully investigated. This is not to say that well funded police departments (United States) are better at what they do or viceversa but there exists an agreeable correlation.

Police force can also be attributed toward the overall notion, respect and perspective that people have toward the police. I am sure an Italian wouldn't feel the same respect toward a policeman the same way an American would do.

blm protested outside graceland as it is "elvis week" (side note: ) the protest was peaceful and happened outside graceland, therefore on public property. yet some protesters were arrested when they were barred from approaching graceland, even though there was a candlelight vigil going on, so it's not like they were the only people there or something. there's always so many fucking people outside there during that week (especially on the 16th), traffic around there is insane.

there's a claim that the police or gracelandsecurity (it's unclear who was controlling access to the gate) there were allowing white visitors up to the gate but not black people. ftr the blm protestors were holding up signs demanding to raise adult literacy rates, equality, and of course black lives matter. dangerous shit for sure.

memphis pisses me the fuck off.

Charming . Perfect example of a "worst nightmare customer" if ever there was one.

I love how they have the nerve to get offended over their nasty comment being made public, too. Further proof they never learned the rule about treating others how you'd like to be treated.

The worst part of this is the fact that the waitress was a US citizen.

Why do people assume all US citizens are white? Or have to be white?

I get that a lot online. It's insulting, but there's a segment of our population who assume anyone who is brown isn't American. Some jackhole online told me I should go back where I came from. I told them I never, ever want to go back to Fresno.

Those are the kind of people voting for the orange fascist.

It's even more insulting in a place like California where over 50% of the population are minorities now.

Since when is the fascist orange?

And like the craven opportunist he is, Trump just couldn't help but fire off a shamelessly self-promoting tweet about it.

I don't get what or why Chicago has to do with this? Are we saying that Blacks kill other Blacks therefore anytime a cop kills a black person it negates the claims of racism and years of oppression?

The inner cities act this way because it's all they know. It's a vicious cycle. No good schools because no one wants to work there, so education becomes an after thought.

Without any sort of education or hope, people fall victim to drugs and doing what it takes to survive.

I don't have the answer on how to clean it up. Obviously more resources have to go into these areas, but I personally don't know what to fund first.

While BLM seems to have its own issues and image problem, I do believe these inner cities are exactly what these Meme is trying to get across. In these parts of larger cities, their lives don't matter.

We read about these stories and instead of feeling empathy or sadness for it all, we turn it political. Give people hope, education, and decent job and the violence will decrease.

I do think if whites were living in those areas, they'd be dead or killing too.
