When innocent or not actively threatening black people are shot by police, and the police officers face no serious repercussions, they perceive it as confirmation that their lives are undervalued. They believe that if the victims were white that those kinds of incidents would spark public outrage and lead to reforms.shawn_hemp wrote: Everyone is protesting these days, does anyone know why? Because a few people got shot by police?We make a huge deal out of it when police officers are killed. All available resources are put into catching the perpetrators, and once caught, they face the most serious possible repercussions.How about this, every time a police officer is shot and killed lets congregate in large groups for extended periods of time
I don't care for (insert career here) getting too political, stick to your day job.
