Legal experts discuss the federal investigation of a police shooting that resulted in the death of a retired veteran.
The officer that shot the marine has been in several situations where he may have went too far. Why hasn't his name been released. He beat up a gentleman in white plains. He also handcuffed a lady that was in an accident who was having an asthma attack and would not let her use her inhaler. Please look into his history. Please post his history.
Killings of this kind are not aberrations. These are just ones that make it to the news. There are so many others that are hiding under the silent code of law enforcement. The fact is that white police officers have less regard for black lives and so do everyone in the judicial system. It's so easy to punish blacks in court over things other races take for granted. I have followed this phenomena, looking at cases and asking myself why. I guess "that's the way it is", like Bruce sang decades back. This might not be the mass murder leaders in Syria conduct, but all the same, they are undeserved and unjustified massacre, that add up over time. We should be fighting these hate killings here at home before telling some world leaders what they should do or not do to crush violent oppositions. It's slow extermination.
