You seem to be mistaken. I didn't even say any of that,
Guess, as usual, you didn't even bother to read it before posting your responses?
So how do you think the leaders in these communities should address these disparities? How can they bring these crime rates down, what should they do and do you think we need to increase recruitment and put as many cops as we can? What incentives should they be given to hire more law enforcement? What should the policing policies be?

Because when it comes to the American dream, more black families are on the short end of the stick.
Ok, so because of that, you have the right to rob, steal, loot, attack people, assault people, assault, and attack police officers, because you have the short end of the stick, that’s your justification?
What about in states like Texas with no or few gun laws? How many kids were slaughtered there last year?
Please, no deflections, we’re talking about Black people generally, we’re talking about what are the problems within the black community and why they have such a high incarceration rate, for being less than 13% of the population, what are the reasons, empty reflections, and platitudes about Texas do not help or your already weak argument.

That is exactly what you are doing and have done in the past.
No, I have always been on point, you guys just want to talk about the former president and nothing else.
This is merely todays version of making excuses for the side that best fits your narrative the police when it suits you and seditionists when it doesn’t
No, the point is you just not able to answer the questions I asked, and you just respond by empty platitudes reflections, it doesn’t booster argument.
THAT is bs. There was absolutely zero threat to the officer’s life.
My brother is a police officer, he encounters threats, every single day, some of the more serious than others, but they’re out there, to even say, or insinuate that an officers life is never in danger is complete insanity, how many officers were killed last year?
All use of force is proportional to the threat when one where’s the badge.
No, you have every right to meet force with the same amount of force that you are getting, if your life is threatened, you have every right to do whatever it takes to safeguard your own life and your fellow officers, you are supposed to de-escalate a situation, at the same time you have the right to not allow yourself to become a target or a punching bag for an unruly suspect.
In this case there wasn’t a little threat. There was no threat. Nada, zip, zilch, zero, none.
As such the use of force in this case would not be within procedures at any department in the US. There is no case in which this level of force would be justified under similar circumstances.
Well, you are right in this particular case, thankfully, this is not a daily and an hourly occurrence, the vast majority of police officers do follow the law, and are committed to upholding the law.

All decent Americans want an end to unnecessary traffic stops and to police brutality.
And most Americans also want answers to why the smallest ethnic group has the highest incarceration rates.
They also want meaningful gun laws.
The people also want their city officials to force the gun laws that are already on the books, they also don’t want their police defunded, they do you want the police to take a proactive approach when it comes to stop in crime, you do that and then you will see less gun violence, if you don’t, then you will see more gun violence without a doubt and more carnage.

Around 2.5% of the US black male population was in prison by the end of 2016.
2,417 per 100,000 US black male residents were incarcerated by the end of 2016.
There were 467,000 sentenced black male prisoners and 20,400 black female prisoners in the US in 2016. These figures exclude blacks with Hispanic origins and those with sentences that are one year or less.
In 2015, 59% of black prisoners sentenced to more than a year in prison were detained for a violent crime.
18-19-year-old black males are 11.8 times more likely to be incarcerated than white males belonging to the same age group.
Black males 65 years and above are 4.4 times more likely to be incarcerated than white males belonging to the same age group.
In 2016, 34% of black inmates were doing time for public order offenses.
While blacks and Hispanics comprise about 32% of the US population, they accounted for 56% of the US prison population in 2015.
Blacks are five times more likely to be incarcerated than whites.
If blacks and Hispanics share the same incarceration rate of whites, the prison population will decrease by 40%.
As of 2001, one in three black males born in the said year would likely face a prison sentence in his lifetime.
As of 2016, 48.3% of prisoners serving life and virtual life sentences are black.
The number of whites and blacks charged with prison sentences of over 1 year declined in 2016.
13% of the inmates belonging to the 18 to 24 age group are black.
The left can argue these facts, they are indisputable and irrefutable, so my question is, what will the black leader ship and leader ship of their communities do or what steps will they take to try and curtail this problem so that we don’t have a situation like this, I want to know, this question has been asked to Lori, Lightfoot, to Eric Adams, to Maxine Waters, Sheila, Jackson, to Al Sharpton, and no one can give a straight answer, but she did have Van Jones on CNN. Try to blame white people for this incident, it’s outrageous.

In the US how many black drivers are stopped by cops?
If you go by the stats
Black drivers are stopped and searched about 1.5 to 2 times as often as white drivers.
Yes, if you go by the police stats
"Police pull over more than 50,000 drivers on a typical day, more than 20 million motorists every year. Yet the most common police interaction — the traffic stop — has not been tracked, at least not in any systematic way."
Yes, if you go by the police stats and facts.
Please put the emotions aside, it doesn’t help any debate.

The attempts to justify this kind of police behavior or transfer responsibility onto the deceased are beyond moronic.
No one is doing that and I have made that abundantly clear
There is no police department anywhere in the United States where this use of force is authorized. Nowhere.
BS! The officer has every legal right to use force if either met with force or if there is a danger to the officers life.
These guys are going to prison where they belong for a long time.
They should! For once we agree on something.

Distrust of police: Black parents, children have ‘the talk’
“It didn’t seem like they were trying to arrest him,” Bowens added. “It seemed like they were trying to hurt him. It was terrifying. I was in tears.”
Nichols, a 29-year-old father, was on his way home from taking pictures of the sky on Jan. 7 when police pulled him over. He was just a few minutes from the home he shared with his mother and stepfather when he was brutally attacked.
So what do you think in the long term should happen? Should cops from now own just allow criminals to do what they want? Should they enforce the law? What should they do? I really would like to know. Whether you trust a cop or not has nothing to do with following the law. So I would like to know your opinion on this.

He spent money like crazy while talking about the greatest economy in history.
Well, there was covid and what is it with Foreigners hating a strong modern and up to date military?
Not just non-Americans the GOP would try to stop American-born voters.
Utter and total laughable BS.
The GOP took away the rights of women to have control over their bodies.
No, they gave it back to the States, now thankfully each state can vote on the issue.
And I thought you believed in home skooling.
I do, now more than ever.

"Trump faced criticism from many in his own party following the November midterm elections,
Yeah, they’re quiet now aren’t they?
in which Republicans underperformed their hopes and expectations.
Well, the abortion issue did kill many of them. Most Americans do want to some limit to abortion in the case of rape, incest or if the life of the mother is in jeopardy, but some of these candidates wanted zero exceptions whatsoever, that scared a lot of women, that was on those candidates not Trump.
The president’s party has historically lost seats in Congress during the midterms, but Democrats were able to grow their majority in the Senate and only narrowly lost in the House."
But they lost the House. They lost the ability and power to spend and write blank checks, and gained the power to stop Biden’s radical agenda, thank god!

Ha, from the people that tried in vain 7 years to take him down.
As such, non-Americans also have the right to speak.
They do, but they can’t vote, so does it matter? Anyway. opinions are always welcome.

I rambled off a bunch, scroll up.
Not under Obama or Biden.
Oh, yes. 75% of the nation thinks so, as well as their pocketbooks.
Geopolitical or domestic ?
Where and when?
Most blue states
Focusing on rebuilding America's infrastructure?
How are the roads in the East Coast recently.
Wokeness is threatening whose male masculinity?
It is all Trump has.
Wits and a growing second round.
-5 ( +3 / -8 )
I wish any of the Trump supporters could give some examples of "absolute benign racism" or the existential threat to the US of the "progressive, woke, radical left, cultural Marxist establishment".
from open borders, to failed liberal policies, massive expanding entitlements, domestic policies leftist policies particularly geopolitical that have been corrosive to our military, defunding our police, to the deficit and inflation, to infrastructure, to rising food costs, to wokeness, to vilifying, male masculinity, to continue pushing racial and gender issues, pushing CRT, but there’s more…
These have been written about concerning Trump and his administration's messaging and are parroted by his supporters but maybe I am slow but I have no idea what they represent.

"the left" = any non-Republican who opposes Trump
No, but the majority of Dems do and they are left and the RINO establishment that are almost extinct.
"RINO" = any Republican who opposes Trump
Yes, and even before Trump came on the political scene RINO’s were a disappointing thorn.
"conservative" = anybody who bends their views and principles for the sake of Trump
No, anyone who loves America, puts America interest first, is an isolationist, respects its people, values its cultures and traditions and rejects woke liberal socialist progressive politics.

His company was just convicted of tax fraud, setting the stage from criminal indictments.
You know full well that the only thing that will happen at the most is, he might have to pay another fine, that’s it.
He and one of his attorneys were just sanctioned by a judge for abusing the legal system with ridiculous lawsuits to the tune of about a million bucks split between them. And don't forget the cases he lost over his so-called non profit charity where all the funds went to him, and having Trump U shut down for defrauding the students. It is catching up to him now. Judges are no longer tolerating his delaying tactics.
Yeah, and watch the Dems fail on that as well. 7 years, don’t kid yourself. The obsessive hate the left has for this guy, they worked 24/7 to do whatever they could to take this guy out and absolutely nothing happened. If they had something on him that could take him out permanently, they would have used it, they know that. This is all more leftist political kabuki for the haters to give them something emotional to hope and lean on. What’s gets me about the left is, they just double down even in the face of blistering embarrassing defeat and still utter, well next time. Look, if the left wants to waste more time going after this guy, go ahead. I think it’s funny tbh.

Lol, the Prius is made by those socialist devils in Japan (sarcasm). She's an ignorant piece of work
As usual the left take things out of context. But if clarity, she’s referring to the practices of democracies selling out to China and jumping on the EV bandwagon and having the world rely on Communist China for a large portion for minerals mined in Africa through slave like condition labor work.
She’s absolutely right.
-8 ( +3 / -11 )
So makes about as much sense as the Trump and Republican rhetoric against wokeness, CRT, cultural Marxism or whatever empty culture war grift that comprises the bulk of what they campaign with to their electorate.
In other words, the left are running up a hopeless slippery hill, as it should be with their toxic policies. Give it the proper burial it should have, it definitely helps Trump and the GOP.
Ask Weisselberg how imaginary his cell is....but make sure to make an appointment with the Rikers Island Warden first...
Hmm…7 years you’ve been saying this. It has as much validity as AOC becoming the next President. We know, soon, soon…lol

Ron DeSantis has a 12-point lead over Donald Trump
Trump currently has an unfavorability rating of 55%, and a favourability rate of 39.6%.
He’s always had that, nothing new, but then again it depends on who was polled.
In one poll Trump was favoured slightly over Biden but that's not such a great achievement.
Considering how destructive his policies have been and still are, it’s a phenomenal achievement.

Don’t listen to the morons who say it was Nichols’ fault for running.
No, that’s an excuse. Two separate issues, you don’t run away from a cop, not unless you want to escalate the situation. 99% of the time it never ends well for the suspect.
There is absolutely no way to justify what happened, none at all.
Of course not, absolutely not, and that’s why even more so why you should never run.
Just amazing that in the US a routine traffic pull over can lead to your death.
I have been pulled over dozens of time, I know way to many people that have gotten pulled over, I don’t know a single person that was killed, not one. As bad as it is overwhelming the cops don’t do what these officers did. They just don’t.
Another first for the US.
No country is perfect. Not a single one, and it’s the individuals that did this act, not the nation.
No where else in the world has that problem.
Don’t even go there. You can choose any country and they all have their own problems on some level.
Coupled with a high chance of getting shot in school.
This is why I would never send my kids to a public school, but it is a problem in particular selected areas for certain

Believe me, if the victory of the GOP is inevitable, it is preferable that it be Trump..
I wouldn’t be so sure, with the damage Biden is doing and with 75% of the nation feeling that the country is going in the wrong direction and 2 more years of this guy and his policies, be careful.
DeSantis is a worse fascist, for the sample now he is suppressing the books in schools in Florida..
Yes, kids don’t need to learn about absolute benign racism. If the parents want to teach them that at home, that’s their choice
De Santis is a danger to the country,
No, he’s a danger to the liberal socialist progressive woke establishment, I’ll definitely give you that, and without a doubt, especially now more so that he’s getting more and Hispanics, that’s definitely not good for the left.
for the minorities, for the freedom and for the democracy
Wrong! Dems policies are what is fueling DeSantis success. Take a look back…
