I have to say, the one thing that makes me disbelieve her is that it's almost too good -- black woman, good looking, who's not afraid to give it to the police, who paases away by suicide when it's almost impossible... If it's true, I think the police deserve to get the maximum penalty -- life imprisonment without possibility of parole. It's truly horrible what they have done -- but lets wait a little bit while we get the facts.

Well who has the real facts? The cops will just manufacture lies and cover up the truth. Nothing can be trusted from what is said from behind the thin blue line.

No need to wait....all you'll get are lies and coverups.

It's hardly relevant what kind of shit she was spewing on FB. You should be able to put forward any kind of silly views without fearing the police suiciding you. To quote Tony Stark: "Historically, not awesome."

Ok so her position is that whites have the highest number of aggravated assaults, larceny, arson, etc. That may be strictly true on the aggregate, but only because there are more whites than blacks. The US is 77% white, 13% black. So look at this chart. Every column has whites as <77% of the crimes and black >13% of the crimes. That proves right there that per capita blacks are more of a problem. It's not racism. It's fucking math. Hell even 52% of the murders are caused by 13% of the population!

All that withstanding, and her being incorrect, I still don't trust a single word that the cops say. They've suicided people for less.

Yup. This is typical of the media. Smear attacks against the victim to justify the state's actions.

She could be a member of Westboro Baptist Church for all it matters. It does not justify what could have happened while she was arrested.

Everytime someone gets killed by LEO under questionable circumstances, then any previous criminal history or other questionable circumstance comes out and their character gets challenged. If it had something to do with that incident or not.

You are part of the problem.

Wow! While I agree the a police officer's knowledge of the law should be taking into consideration when deciding a punishment for wrong behavior, they are still humans. Have you never made a mistake at work? Yes, extra scrutiny is needed when dealing with them, but still... they are just people like you and me. Last time I checked, people where innocent until proven guilty.

Who will hold the sharp end of the pitchforks long enough for facts to come to light?

Depends. It's sad that the people have to riot in order to get any justice served for the poor and helpless.

I'm sure someone can start selling pitchfork holders if there is a market for it.
