The use of force by police against African-Americans in cities such as Baltimore, New York, and Ferguson, Missouri,....

In Baltimore, the six officers charged in Freddie Gray's death, three of whom are black, have all been acquitted/charges dropped. In Ferguson, Mo., Michael Brown was a multiple felon the day he died. His actions resulted in his death. In NYC, Eric Garner refused to obey officers and then resisted arrest before he died from cardiac problems connected to his obesity.

There is no war on black men in the U.S. being conducted by the police. The slaughter of black men, particularly in Chicago, is being carried out with sickening frequency by other black men.

There is no war on black men in the U.S. being conducted by the police.

No one is claiming a 'war on black men'. But the numbers clearly show that a disproportionate number unarmed of black men are killed by the police in the US. People want to see a rectification of this problem.

There is a long history of bad conduct that should be addressed.

Usually it is handled simply by paying millions to the victims' kin. Anyone remember the Patrick Dorismond case in the Giulianni era when undercover NYC officers shot him after he reacted badly to them trying to sell him drugs? Those kinds of drug sale set ups are morally wrong and heavy responsibility should reach further up the chain of command.
