  1. Why does it matter what color the cop is?

  2. At 1am with a BB gun that looked like a real gun..this everything going on right now with violence against cops..race aside I would have shot him too. His color had nothing to do with it.

  3. The news needs to stop pointing out race like o the victim was black and o the two officers were white …but yet they wonder why race is becoming an issue now a days

  4. Really why does Race of either matter!

  5. If they didn’t make note of their race, then the police would be accused of hiding that information.

  6. What about white people?!

  7. SO SICK OF ALL THIS. LIKE HERE’S A TIP FOR EVERYONE OUT THERE: START LISTENING TO THE POLICE. WHEN A COP TELLS YOU TO DO SOMETHING, DO IT. THIS IS NOT THE TIME FOR NEGOTIATIONS. I DON’T CARE HOW IN THE RIGHT YOU ARE. DO WHAT IS ASKED OF YOU AND SORT THE REST OUT LATER. COPS ARE HUMAN BEINGS TOO. THEY WANT TO MAKE IT HOME TO THEIR FAMILIES TOO. WHEN THEY SAY HANDS UP OR HANDS ON THE GROUND DO IT. (ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A WEAPON.) TOO MANY PEOPLE THESE DAYS ACT LIKE THEY KNOW THE LAW BETTER AND THAT THEY DON’T HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE POLICE. THAT’S WHEN THEY GET SHOT. NOT CAUSE THEY ARE BLACK. JUST BECAUSE THEY DID NOT FOLLOW SIMPLE DIRECTIONS!
