It's not a systematic racism issue.
It absolutely is a systematic racism issue.
You had the case where the guy was walking to his car, hands raised up, to pick up his id to show the cops, and there were 4 of them, who weren't even looking for him, who just happened to have a car broken down on the highway on his return from the community college he was studying at. Then, without any warning, one of the officers simply opened fire and murdered him in cold blood. And left him agonizing there, without so much as checking on him to see if he was at least still breathing. Nothing. He wasn't giving the police officers any reason to fear him. He was doing everything by the books. And still got murdered.
Then the case of the man lying down with his hands up talking to the police and explaining the situation regarding the mental patient he was taking care of. And he got shot. Luckily, it was in the leg. But he still got shot. How the f*ck is the police officer afraid of a man lying down calmly talking to him?!
Then of course the case of the teen boy who was murdered by police officers because he had a toy gun and the police officers were searching for an adult black male and decided to kill him anyway because hey shoot first ask later. And he's black, the guy they were looking for was black, so I guess it all worked out.
If a cop thinks you've got a gun
Ok, so why is it when a cop thinks that you have a gun, and you are white, he will go to extreme lengths to arrest without killing you, but if you are black, he will shoot to kill without asking any questions? Doesn't that sound kind of like, I don't know, racism? Which has become systematic since it's what we see happening all the time? White dude commits a crime, likely to be arrested without being murdered. Black dude is minding his own business, gets killed because hey he may have a gun and he's black and around blacks never relax.
People really need to understand what goes on in an officers head before they begin to judge.
Being a cop is a stressful business, sure. But they are not judge, jury and executioner. The death penalty is only to be applied in very specific cases, by a judge, after investigations and trials determine it so. Not by a f*cking pathetic cop shooting down a guy whose car had broken down because hey maybe he has a gun.
