    The Police Killings will end when :

    1. People with a Type A Personality are declared Temperamentally Unfit for Civilian Police service.

    2. Military Veterans are not allowed to hold Government Jobs or be Politicians, ever... period.

    3.When the Police have their battle tanks and machine guns taken away.

    4. When the Police are told by the Supreme Court that nobody gives a damn about how hard their job is, what they think their responsibilities are, or what decisions that they think they have to make at ANY time.

    Their responsibilities are what the people (including individuals) says that their responsibilities are, their decisions what the people (including individuals) says that their decisions are.

    Their job is to Protect and Serve the People.

    People have the right to tell the police how to do their jobs because the People are their Employer, and they either do what they're told...

    Or they're fired.

    Period.

    5. If the Police need heavier weapons than their revolvers, they can ask the Governor for the independent assistance of the National Guard.

    6. When the Supreme Court says that The police, like all humans know when something is wrong with another person.

    That such person is equal to everyone else, and they are just as much the employer of the police as every other civilian in the CIVILIAN RULED COUNTRY.

    And the Police either treat people with respect, or they go to prison.

    End of story.

    7. When the Supreme court says that The Tax payers pay the Police Officer's salary, and that they earn it by doing what the people say do, how they say do it, when they say do it.

    Not when they feel like they have some duty to a badge that the public gave them.

    That's when the police shootings will end.

    Yes P.R. since as the writer said that police and the military get lots of military "veterans" and which only get trained to shoot to kill, then you get these situations. We are the enemy !! The other thing is like in a little town in SC that the police is the town's money maker by handing out traffic tickets as raffle tickets. Laws should be written that only you should be fined if you really with proof that you endanger the public; don't hand out tickets just to fill the police coffers. No wonder people start hating the police here. The word is correct: just serve and protect; that is the job.

    Just now 5 police killed in Dallas; 7 wounded. Since due to our fantastic gun laws ( in our town all the assault type weapons are sold out!!) then no wonder some people like to try these out. So it becomes us against them. Who's got the most fire power? Sorry this is the craziest country in the world; why can other countries have decent gun laws and we make it only worse? But yeah the idiot Trump will make sure that we get even more guns on the street. We call ourselves an civil country?, keep on dreaming.

    It's a sad day. It's a sad page in a sad book. I agree with much of what was written above. Many are frustrated and angry.

    Lets all jump to to conclusions before the ink is even dry on the police reports, lets not wait for any investigation to determine what really happened, like the cause of the incident to begin with, instead lets walk into the streets to show our ire at the .001 % of the Nations law Enforcement Agencies, whose cops go off the reservation so to speak and create their own set of laws and Rules, and if by walking we can create an unruly mob whose intentions are different than those who organize such marches and maybe I can get a flat screen TV for my efforts, lets not recognize the victims own actions, like the man in New Orleans, a convicted felon out on parole , carrying an illegal weapon, so much for tighter gun laws, selling bootleg CD's, also illegal, deciding to intimidate an homeless man with a gun, this great father of 5 , who likes children so much that he was convicted for impregnating a 14 year old child , and is $25,000 in arrears for child support, this upstanding citizen decides to resist the arrest( police called by the homeless man ) because he knows he is going back to jail for violation of his parole, (carrying a gun), that decision cost him his life, now whether or not the shooting is justified or not is up to the Courts to decide not racial activists or politicians pandering to get votes.

    If a cop walked into a stadium with a machine gun and killed 70,000 people. There would be an investigation and it would prove he was not guilt because cops are always innocent. At best we can agree to disagree.

    Yes the guy shot in Louisiana was a dirt ball. But, he deserved due process.

    Why do you always try to dig up as much dirt as you can on anyone who was killed by the police? You did the same thing with Mike Brown and countless other unarmed black Americans who were shot in cold blood by your fellow brethren.

    Nothing like attacking someone who can no longer defend themselves against it.


    For starters, we don't know if he had a gun. The police haven't officially said that he had one or not. The only thing we know is that one of the cops yelled that he had one and then shot him in the back while he was pinned down on the ground.

    The owner of the shop directly contradicts the story told by the homeless man who called the cops on Sterling and said the police were extremely and unnecessarily aggressive from the second they arrived. He also said that Sterling often sold CD's in front of his store and that he never had a problem with him doing so.

    Oh, and selling CD's or owing back child support isn't a grounds for a cop to execute someone by shooting them in the back while they are restrained on the ground.

    All he would have to say is that he feared for his life and all would be forgiven.

    Exactly. This is what makes me so angry about people who stick up for the cops who play judge, jury, and executioner. Being a dirt ball isn't grounds for execution. Owing past due child support isn't grounds to be shot in the back. Selling bootleg CD's isn't grounds to be taken away in a body bag.

    But many people would rather blame the victim. It's really sad when you think about it.

    Agreed TJ, but so many of these so-called social justice activists want the system to work like a one hour T.V. episode CSI, You must wait and let the system work,but so many in the media and even some politicians feel it necessary to take up sides on the issue at hand which causes a greater divide between the community and police.

    When the media tries to portray the victim as some type of a pillar of the community to enhance the gravity of the harm done to the victims family and drum up support for some type of immediacy as far as due process is concerned, there are rogue cops, and they should be punished to full extent of the law, if the cops did what is purported they did, there is need to enhance the victims family loss, but when the enhancement is untrue, then they are doing serious damage to the credibility of the prosecutors case. The deed done is heinous enough without the embelishment of the social activists

    It is a deadly serious situation. Victim advocacy people showed up in Mobile demanding the cop involved in shooting and killing the young suspect be brought up on charges. Their obvious position is there is no reason for a suspect to be shot. They qualify the suspect as a victim.

    Again this is a group that wants to dismiss the due process system and go to what a majority feel type of justice, it is not this groups job to make these kinds of judgments and perhaps tainting a possible jury pool, the cops in Dallas had nothing to due with what happened in Mo. and La.concerning police related shootings, so why target and kill them? I am not taking sides on this issue because the New Orleans video looks pretty bad, but as bad as it looks , we must still have Due Process.

    Is it possible that many of those in the African American community (and many of those who aren't) think the whole system is broken in the first place? African Americans have been sounding the alarm about police brutality for decades, but only recently have people begun to listen to them because modern technology enables us to video tape police when they are interacting with people of color.

    Due process is fine and dandy when it is used the way it was intended, but police officers and everyone else are held to different standards. A police officer just has to say they were scared and anything they do will be swept under the rug. An average citizen can't shoot someone in the back and then claim they were scared.


    And the Dallas shooting was a tragedy, but I would like to remind you and everyone else that the shooter was not part of the Black Lives Matter protest. It was a peaceful protest that was coordinated by both the Black Lives Matter movement and the Dallas Police Department. Hell, the Dallas Police Department even posted many pictures of protesters posing with police officers throughout their rally.
