Don't worry. She's getting off easy. If she were black, they would kill her.

Exactly, that's why you will never see black people in jail or prison.

White cops don't care.  The white supremacist police will kill any black, any chance they get.  And even if they don't get a chance, they'll make one by breaking a taillight.  Rolling Eyes

I hear that said but figures do not support it, I actually feel sorry for the police, they do a very difficult job while rules tie both hands, scrutiny is necessary but the weight has got ridiculous, I think US police have got it much harder than the British police, every police stop in the US could involve firearms, the police want to go home to their families, safe, as we all do, I cannot believe every police officer shoot first and asks questions later to black or white, the very idea does a huge disservice to good, hard working people.

10 millions Americans are arrested every year. 1000 are killed by police.

250 are black and 500 are white. the other 250 are various others.

Don't let the mythomaniac gaslight you.

According to MSNBC, white cops are 5.5 times as likely to kill a black male as a white male, adjusted for proportion. They are even 2.4 times as likely to kill a black women than a white woman.

They just don't care, as long as they have the police union to stick up for them.

More likely is correct.

But neither race is "safe"

I think we all want police to be the good guys.  But a sizable percentage of them are psychopaths wanting to vent their mental illness (to be kind).  Police work is attractive to the aberrant mind because it involves the exercise of authority over other human beings.  Let’s face it, just as paedophiles are attracted to the positions as wards in juvenile facilities, so autocratic types are attracted to police work.

As we discussed on another thread, a sizable portion of police are southerners who (for historical reasons) have drifted into police work, carrying with them their racial biases.

Cross autocracy with racial bias, and that is why police work in America has a huge stripe of racism in it.  Now I know that RW’ers are not problem solvers, but someday, somehow, this problem has to be faced, and a solution must be found.  Otherwise, the answer to civil strife is civil war, and we are already seeing the seeds of that in the streets.  The RW Neanderthal-speak serves no good, right or left.

Sorry, but I am right.  I have a PhD in the subject, and I have taught at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, of the City University of New York, as well as the University of Arizona, Criminal Justice Department.  

You are just an outlander who lives in Turkey, and runs a dead website with, what, three members?  I doubt you have conducted any studies, least of all in America.

You know Quill, I always hope you find me fair, amd I have to say this....Maddog has never struck me as racist. I’m friends with him on Facebook and he has never struck me as racist on there either.

How about we all stop flinging pointless names around? Debate is far better that way.

Ps. For the record, I don’t agree with his opinions on you either.

I have more than opinions about him.

Lets take the above comments. He is stating that cops in the north and west are racist because they moved there from the south.

That is a blatant lie. He has no proof, because there is no proof.

I will call that out, because it ruins debate.

We can't very well discuss math if one debater insists that 2 and 2 is 5.

And, I don't say racist things nor act racist.

Quill can't say the same about lying. He makes up things. That's not even debatable.

Then perhaps he should state them as opinions and not facts. That’s what debates are, in all actuality, they’re opinions.

Fair is relative, eds. I find you to be a RW conservative.

As for Redneck, you don't know southerners like I do. Ideologies come in a host of associations. Get to know those associations and you'll be able to predict the whole person.

Lets take the above comments. He is stating that cops in the north and west are racist because they moved there from the south.

That is a blatant lie. He has no proof, because there is no proof.

I will call that out, because it ruins debate.

We can't very well discuss math if one debater insists that 2 and 2 is 5.  

Then perhaps he should state them as opinions and not facts. That’s what debates are, in all actuality, they’re opinions.

They are debates, using facts to back up opinions.

Everyday at work I give an opinion. That opinion is based on me compiling data and facts. If I misrepresent the facts and data, my opinion is worthless. Because of that, doing so could cost me my license or even my freedom if the misrepresentation is serious enough.

If you make up facts to support your opinion, you're a liar. That's what Quill does. And that's not even an opinion any more.

You don't know fact finding from farting apples.  What you sell is perspective.  You leave out inconvenient facts, cherry-pick friendly facts, and deny, or pivot your way out of difficult positions.  But that's when you take time out of attacking the messenger, and choose to deal with the message.

As my dad used to say, and I'm a left-handed Nigerian jet pilot!

Eddie has taken the famed Political Axis test and fallen in the same place as me and Quill -- left-libertarian. I live with her, I know she's no Tory. She's never voted for them, and if she does occasionally agree with them, well that's just like how most Democrats in America voted for Ronald Reagan in 1984 (the well-known "Reagan Democrats").

She actually said Quill was going to call her a right-winger last night -- good call, babe Cool

But really, can we ever debate an idea without dragging political ideology into it?

I never took that test. It's no insult...I know many RW'ers that are quite civil.

Maybe it would please you if I said, eds is a very nice RW conservative. But she's a RW conservative, nonethtless.

I know it's not an insult, but neither is it true. I live with her and you don't, therefore I know her far better than you do.

On the other hand, I am a political scientist and you are not. I appreciate that you are very close to the subject, but that also probably means that you are too close to recognize the indicators. As sweet as I'm sure eddie is, she has reflexes that indicate an immediate and strong pull to the right.

As I say, that's not a bad thing. It just is... My parents, now deceased, were Republicans. My sister still is. Left or right, it has nothing to do with a person's affability.

They usually portray themselves as the hero or victim

Fine. That settled, I have merely said that according to all indicators, eddie takes stands that indicate a RW conservative.

Quill, you have called me RW in the past too, I have voted Labour all my life.
Eddie is certainly not on the right either, she has never come across as RW and Ben, who know her better than anyone, confirms this.

Why do you put labels on people?

What indicators? Can you tell us what ideas Eddie has that confirm her to be without doubt a RW conservative?

I struggle to think of any, off the top of my head. But since you say 'all', should be easy to put right.

But ...... crucially .... this encounter did NOT result in a death or a beating or anything.

The political protests in the Summer were because people were being frequently KILLED by cops, not just dragged off.

Pupils have been dragged away from classrooms by cops twice their size, for committing  petty 'nonviolent' misdemeanors.


These days a common reason for being dragged off is because of not wearing a mask. Here is an amazing one - especially the first minute or so.  Shocked  Shocked
