You answer your own question.

“how come these people don’t demonstrate when they murder their own kind” – it is always a tragedy when a crime is committed and someone dies.

However, the systematic racism in our country’s establishment ensures black people are unfairly targeted as the victims of police brutality, in your own words: “how come no white person has ever been shot by a… cop”

Thank you for owning up to your racism, – wishing you hatzlocha in your self-growth.

Blacks are unfairly targeted?

As a Jew, and especially one living in Crown Heights, you sound to me exactly like one of the many who unfairly target us law biding citizens.

The world is bigger than Crown Heights.

Halevai we’d all be “law abiding citizens.”

Promulgating racial hatred is also a crime.

“Promulgating racial hatred is also a crime”? Maybe crack open your copy of the Constitution and look at the First Amendment, and you’ll discover that it’s not. You really might want to think twice about having the government police speech and decide what is and isn’t a “crime”; ask some folks who lived in the USSR how that worked for them.

So I guess you’re unaware

that Weimar Germany (1920s) had rather strict laws on the books banning hate speech. Not only did that not prevent the rise and growth of the Nazi party, but on the contrary, they used the existence of those laws as part of their propaganda (“what we’re saying must be true, otherwise the government wouldn’t be afraid of it”).

No, the problem for Jews in 1930s Germany was brownshirts attacking them in the streets and destroying their homes and businesses. You know, like Antifa and Burn Loot Murder nowadays.

So when unarmed white men are shot (as happens very often) does that mean there’s systemic anti-white racism? When Jews are attacked by black, does that mean there’s systemic antisemitism in the black community? If so, why are you and fringe group totally silent about that?

If you’d bother looking at some statistics, you’d find that the number of blacks “unfairly targeted” by police is quite low, actually. In this case the guy was running away, and had several prior arrest warrants, for example. And anyway, as the first commenter correctly noted, the number of those pales in comparison to the number of blacks killed by other blacks. And if you must invoke “systematic racism,” ask yourself why that seems to be so prevalent in Democrat-controlled areas.

truthfully i don’t want to engage with you because of your racism, but I am noting here for onlookers. On kingston there is a Black ran org that works against violence. Everytime there is a shooting in Ch they have a anti-violence demonstration. Instead of complaining and not knowing about these types of things- expand your mind- look into and support anti violence work. Our own State reps just passed a legislation about gun violence- its not like people aren’t working on this just because you don’t know about it.

Ooh, a demonstration

April 13, 2021 7:42 am

One wonders: does that organization actually _do_ anything about these shootings, such as working to fix the pathologies in the black community that lead to these shootings (you’ll note that few of any other groups have this problem), or do they think that their demonstrations will magically effect change?

You obviously were never attacked or robbed by a black person so you have this noble “non racist” attitude. Try getting held up by a 13 year old punk with a gun or your car and house being broken into and robbed a half a dozen times, or waking up in middle of the night to find a black ( yes black- not white) person in your bedroom doorway, and then talk to me about racism. The fact is , cops don’t just pull their guns or tasers on people just because they’re black. Get real!

the police officer accidentally took out his gun instead of his taser as you can see in the body cam footage he yells “taser taser taser”
and then says “OMG I shot him”

Video footage on the female officer indicates that she mistakenly mixed up her weapons. You hear her yelling, “taser, taser, taser” (which alerts her fellow officers that she is about to taser someone). You then hear her cursing that she shot him.

yes yes yes, I agree that any person should never be murdered like this, unless it’s at the expense of another person’s life. However, rioting and looting, screaming to defund the police, smashing windows all ”in the name of peace” is just giving the race a bad name and showing that they fight for their rights with violence, clearly not caring about other people’s lives in the meantime.

April 12, 2021 8:51 pm

Here’s an idea: Don’t commit crime and don’t resist arrest and you won’t be in a situation where police make mistakes. These incidents have happened with white people many many times.
This doesn’t give anyone the right to riot, loot and terrorize.

April 12, 2021 11:07 pm

why there’s so little mention of the resistance the driver gave that precipitated the shooting. I watched the video. he breaks out of the hold to be handcuffed, gets back into his car and strugges to drive off, resisting arrest to the max. Not saying it justified a shoot to kill (which purportedly the officer didn’t do, mistaking the taser gun for his real one), but certainly colors him less a victim and more a criminal (yes, resisting arrest and running from police is a crime), and a repeat one, since also reportedly he had an outstanding warrant. Again, no… Read more »

People gotta start looking at statistics. When a minority commits majority of crimes, chances are they’re gonna be involved with police a lot more and not only that they gotta change their culture a little. And either way if you have a warrant put out for ur arrest for possessing an illegal gun, which this guy did, chances are you’ll be shot if you don’t comply with ur arrest and reach back into ur car. People are so dumb its mind boggling. And idk why jews are sticking up for a black criminal who got shot cuz he didn’t comply… Read more »

…you’d see more of these “activists” trying to do something about the thousands of blacks killed annually by other blacks, not about the far fewer (an order or two of magnitude fewer!) than those killed by police. You’d have them trying to fix the pathologies of the black community, such as a lack of fathers. Instead they (and you) prefer to blame whitey.

“Racist” is simply a term you’re using to try to shut down discussion, and it won’t work. Answer truthfully: do blacks in this country have far higher rates of fatherless families? Yes. In fact, it’s been that way at least since the Moynihan Report in the mid-1960s. Do blacks in this country have a far higher rate of gun violence and murders than other races? Again, yes. How many blacks are killed annually by other blacks? Thousands. How many are killed by police? In the double digits.

I don’t think you’re aware of what police do. In certain circumstances they have the authority to kill, and are sometimes even required to do it. I’ll defend any innocent person who is did nothing wrong and is being discriminated against. I won’t defend a criminal who committed crimes, and then compounded their problems by fighting against police when the law caught up with them. Almost every one of these cases are criminals who had multiple run-ins with law enforcement which they could easily have avoided by being decent people. Sadly they chose a life a crime and paid the… Read more »

The USA should make it that no one should have a gun even the police only tasers they should use since it is less lethal. They should only make the SWAT have lethal weapons for advanced crime, (eg: Hostile, Knife Crime etc..) that can be a danger to the public, they should ban guns & you know what’s going to happen less shootings. I believe a gun free country can stop the world from turning into a war. Guns you shouldn’t just be able to buy from a shop to make it harder for attackers to get hold of one.… Read more »

When I was in 6th grade public school (1970-71), the teacher presented to us a story for our social studies class. An African girl was being mistreated because of her race, and, no surprise, she broke down crying. The teacher told us, “Now put yourself in her shoes. How would you feel if you were treated like that?” Off-hand, this sounds very reasonable and fair. However, during Chol-HaMoed, when I told this story to some of the Chevrai in the Sukkah (I know, better things to talk about there…), an elderly Mispallel said, “There is a problem with them.
