When I first saw this, it was painful. I thought wow; this could be my son, my brother, my uncle, my nephew, or my little cousins. All the men I named or educated employed, hardworking, upstanding citizens, but in an instant, with cops like these (shouting "Stop trying to grab my gun"), cops who create deceit; how would my loved ones stand a chance?

Imagine if these dirty imbeciles were allowed to follow through, using the excuse, "He grabbed my gun?" Due to the brotherhood of cops, who would have ever known the difference? Who would ever question? So I ask how our men safeguard themselves from the ignorance of prejudice, and barbarism, without pulling the race card. They can't!!!! Because many times, it is based on race. And the cops would get away with it due to race, and our social prejudices against Black men or Men of color. I am inclined to believe, there are thousands of men in jail or prison innocent of the charges brought against them... Some months ago, I watched a conference held by Michelle Alexander author of "The New Jim Crow" and as I listened, I heard former cops from varying cities and states admit police officers have been guilty of drive-by shootings; reported to be rival gangs... The testifying officer however made a point which brought the thought home to me... She stated police officers have hundreds of hours of training to become decent marksman. As well it takes skill and agility to hit a moving target head on from a moving vehicle. Her words were, "Even with extensive training that's a difficult shot." Our men are being targeted for sport, and because we have bought this bill of goods, believing these Black Men must be guilty of something. We never investigate further than the evening news and this friend is SIN (social ignorance & negligence).
