I will not allow another human being to take my life or another persons life just because they have a uniform on. Life is equal all around the world. God chose everyone one of us to be on this Earth and I will not stand by while another human being attempts to kill another human being. I guess I am just different, I guess I am not the average American. No more putting heads in the sand. Cops have been killing people during peaceful protest. We have a right to defend ourselves from abuse.
Where is the outrage over citizens murdering cops in cold blood? That happens a lot more than cops murdering citizens. And, in case you forgot, cops are normal men & women with families just like everyone else.
The cops that killed that man are a POS & deserve to be held accountable but this thread is a freaking joke. Cop bashing seems to be the cool thing to do. Incidentally, I'd love to see what percentage of those bashing cops in this thread have a criminal record.
You clearly have little knowledge on the HISTORY of police brutality in America...Go read some books then come back to discuss the TOPIC AT HAND. People love to change the subject when they have little knowledge of it. Love ya bro but you have to do your research. This has been going on for decades in America. The cops get no charges as you claim they are men and women like us but they do not get punished as we do. PEACE
THIS HAPPENS TO BLACK MALES EVERYDAY FROM 16 - 60YR OF AGE....WE ARE NOW GETTING THIS ON TAPE THANKS TO SMART PHONES....WE MUST STAND TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY, BYSTANDERS MUST TAKE ACTION WHEN THEY SEE POLICE BRUTALITY OR THIS WILL CONTINUE TO HAPPEN. COPS ARE POORLY TRAINED AND ENCOURAGED TO MEET ARREST QUOTAS
Getting under Jake Matthews' skin isn't an easy task.
The former Texas A&M left tackle and soon-to-be first-round NFL draft pick keeps an even keel on the field and frustrates opponents with every tool a pass protector needs: size, athleticism and technique. But on the last night of college football's regular season last year, it was Missouri defensive end Kony Ealy doing the frustrating.
"There was a lot of trash-talking," Ealy said, according to stltoday.com. "Both of us. And that's not like him, so I took him out of his comfort zone."
Ealy's stat line against the Aggies was strong if not spectacular (four tackles, one for loss, and a quarterback hurry), but he played well enough to draw Matthews' praise when asked about his toughest assignment.
"I thought Kony Ealy was really good at Missouri," Matthews said. "Real aggressive. Big and strong. Mixed up his pash-rush moves real well."
Helping Ealy through months of pre-draft preparation has been his cousin, former Missouri defensive tackle and current New York Jet Sheldon Richardson.
"Sheldon's been great," Ealy said. "He's been kind of a big brother, mentor to me, just trying to help me through this process -- not knowing what to expect."
You're only using one definition of racism to support your argument - there are more than one definitions. Discriminating against someone because of their race (for example: saying someone can't play in a league because of their skin color) is racism. Racism doesn't always have to be about one race showing superiority over another. It doesn't matter what caused LJ's response or what his intentions were, there is never a "right" or "excusable" time to make racist comments. You don't conquer racism with racist remarks. Both were wrong.
And by the way....an all white basketball league is not only racist, it's one of the dumbest things I have ever heard of. That guy out to be smacked on the face for even coming up with the idea.
Hmmm, just a hypothesis but remember how we dominated the Giants with Chase Blackburn helping the defense recognize plays before the snap? Well, Harper knows the saints very very well and Decoud knows the Falcons very very well also. We could potentially pick their brains of course and dominate the NFC south again this year due to their inside info on opposing offenses and audibles. JUST A THOUGHT
