And what happens when officers start worrying more about survival and less about policing, which is what I see as the eventual outcome to this type of criminal scumbaggery?

Who will complain the loudest when there's no one to call?

That being said, this doesn't appear to be a targeted police shooting but the net effect is probably the same.

Quote by article
A person who reported being shot at by several people driving by in a car called police to 2nd St. and Edgerton Drive, Zeigler said at a news conference. Police chased the vehicle to 22nd and Haskell, where gunmen inside the car fired multiple shots and hit one of the officers, Zeigler said.

I have come up with a solution to this: if people just stop committing crimes then we don't need cops and without cops, no unarmed black men will be shot by them. Fool proof.

I mean not to trivialize cops dying in the line of duty but shit happens all the time. This wasn't even one of those BLM vigilantes or anything.

Well isn't that what cops are trying to achieve by shooting all the black people?

Also, only Americans would find it necessary to specify that Kansas City is in Kansas.

Don't really see an issue with this one to be honest but he can definitely give a smug undertone when shit like this happens. Not banworthy though because discussion on the OP barely lasts half a page in this forum.

Actually quite rare, which is why it gets the attention it does. We are currently at historic lows in officers killed in the line of duty per capita. There were more officers killed in 1915 than in 2015, but only 1/3 the population.

You must be mistaking me with someone else, lol. But go ahead and keep using your own standard for racism. It's very entertaining.

I like how you justify your racism by saying I'm the only person to ever make this apparent to you. Which is patently untrue.


The PC police redefined racism to put us on a tighter leash, man!

You use that word in too cavalier a fashion, causing it to lose it's strength.

Exactly.

No right minded person would call me racist if we hung out for one day or just watched how I interact with people. I live near D.C., which in the surrounding Northern VA area is about as diverse as you'd get for a state that most assume is very predominately white.

I also lived in Vegas for 6 years, so there can be no illusions that I live in a whitey vacuum.

We've seemingly moved into a paradigm where any statement than can be (mis)construed as racist WILL be (mis)construed as racist. Further, once you've been so "outed" as a racist, you're a racist for life.

Seems to me that's not vastly different from the "one drop rule" that was the law of the land for many years (and was no-bullshit racist).

Both are/were extreme positions taken by shallow people who need(ed) them to be true to further their own weak agenda.

That's not what I said. Cavalier usage, not mere repetition, was my concern. You are using "racism" as a debate tactic to support your own personal grudges, which is demeaning to people who actually have suffered racism.

No, I'm not. I do not debate bdof. I make fun of or around him.

If you don't see the racism he espouses, maybe you just have little experience identifying racism and shouldn't suppose to lecture those that have seen more of it on what is and is not demeaning to them. I hope you see what you're saying here.

At any case, is making fun of a racist's (or, to indulge you, someone you perceive as racist) demeaning to those who experience it? I don't know. Sounds backwards to me.
