I hope they never commit a crime or have any outstanding warrants. For sure, facial recognition software is being utilized.

The privilege is overwhelming in this post.

Can you share with the class just ONE example of a black guy getting shot while complying with law enforcement?

You can't.

You have lists of gentle giants, and others resisting arrest. Generally assaulting police officers before they get shot.

People who comply with what is required of them by officers live to represent themselves in court, should it prove unfair.
 

It will be fine

Seriously! They didn't do nuthin!

Good luck to us in the 2020 elections citing racial privilege in order to ignore the facts on the ground.
When your argument is everyone that lives in the hood deserves to be harassed by police and they should shut up and take it, you are demonstrating you have no understanding of their experience. It’s the definition of privilege.

Sure buddy, there are no bad cops and every shooting is justified. What a wonderful world you live in.

Didn't say that. You're just back to twisting words when you don't have a valid argument.

I said that you have no examples of police shootings with someone fully complying.
You take a swing at a cop, and I've got very little sympathy for what's going to happen after.

There are definitely bad cops. But that's by far the exception. Most are some of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.

* the police, glorified paper pushers. Only time I’ve called them is for them to file some paper work for my insurance.

Doubling down on your privileged worldview isn’t very compelling. It’s ok that you don’t understand what it’s like to be a young black man in a city but dismissing them just makes you look foolish.

So you think that folks taunting police, throwing bottles at them, in the middle of a firefight is perfectly ok? Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris the other day said Michael Brown was murdered. Their mentality and yours is what gets cops killed. No one should paint everyone in the inner city as bad. But no one should paint all cops with the same brush. Most shootings of minorities by cops, white or otherwise, are justified. And most Blacks who are murdered by far are by other blacks, something that's always played down by those who use racism to further their own agenda.
