    This is how our forefathers reacted to a simple tax.  Could you imagine if they were killing them and throwing them in prisons??  I am not saying this is some revolution btw.  I am saying civil unrest is a human response to perceived grievances that are ignored.

    Look around the world throughout history and today.  It is human nature.  If people feel like they are being herded into prisons and being murdered without consequence what the fug do you expect to happen?  They eventually revolt.  Our own nation's revolutionary beginnings are based on similar outbreaks if civil unrest and violence.
    They have been asking for criminal justice reform and reduction of police brutality for decades.  No one listened and just dismissed them.  Then act surprised that they are upset all of the sudden.  It hasnt suddenly happened, it has built over decades.
    I isn't about a singular incident either in Ferguson or Baltimore.  It is about decades of abuse coming to a boiling point.  The incidents were their breaking points.
    And it is patronizing to say "Aw they just like to complain".  It is dismissive of their grievances, and that type of mindset by us and lawmakers is why things like Ferguson and Baltimore happen.
    You want to know why?  Because if they dont no one gives a poo.

    Does that not seem just a little bit patronizing?
     I can understand (but disagree) with someone who says that their grievances aren't as bad as they perceive them to be.  But to just say "they like having something to complain about" is kinda dismissive and condescending IMO.

    What do you think they are looking for?  I here a lot of people insinuate ulterior motives, what do you think they want?

    Sometimes media and fans put WAY too much stock in preseason games.  Dont get too excited or worried about preseason.  It is a another ballgame 2 weeks from now.

    Black Lives Matter tweeted this 3 days ago.  I wonder if it will shift some minority support to Bernie.  Probably not, but does call into question her real commitment to criminal justice reform

    Not a bad idea, but as PoundCat said, the NRA will sell thhat as the Orwellian government tracking you and always knowing your gun's whereabouts.  They will also claim something like that would only lead eventually to confiscation 
    It would not go very far.  But I do think that (or something similar) is a good idea.

    I do agree with you here.  And it is a difficult job, and I admire most of their work and do not envy their jobs.
    That is part of the reason I want them to change the way they engage certain non-violent suspects and take laws like marijuana and drug abuse off their books.   I believe it will keep more people alive, and help law enforcement avoid some confrontations and keep them safer as well.
    I dont want cops or civilians shot.  It sucks.

    You may be right, but out of the @8,000 people killed by police from 2004-2011 only 41 cops were charged for murder or manslaughter, or about 0.5%   Not convicted, but charged.  Admittedly, part of the reason is because a large majority of shootings are likely indeed justified, but it is also because Law Enforcement has preferential treatment of investigations because of LEBOR, are often investigating themselves, and tend to favor their own over a civilian.
    They also have much lower conviction rates than civilians and lighter sentences.
    Police rarely get charged for misconduct, vast majority of complaints go nowhere, if they do get charged they rarely get convicted, and if they do get convicted they get lighter sentences.  So they can kill or abuse power with virtual impunity.
    If Black Lives Matters does nothing else it has helped bring these issues to light and have people conscious of these abuses and lack of consequences for tragic events.

    Sometimes they get pulled for just making eye contact with a police officer, so.... no
