>>5939>Police will still have funds to do their remaining duties.
Given the massive run of rampant looting, arson, assault, and general mischief throughout all this, I'm skeptical of that.> The police will still have more than enough money to carry their one boulder.
But you're not STARTING by giving them one boulder.
You're STARTING by removing funding.>We tried to protest peacefully, and you called us unpatriotic and "sons of bitches" for kneeling at football games.
So that justifies attacking innocent people?
You cannot claim to be for justice when you attack innocent people who have done nothing to you.
That makes you simply a thug, and nothing more.>The protests are against people like you. Who make excuses for systemic racism.
Ah, right, because how dare I ask questions and examine the issue.
I should just listen and believe, I should just trust you guys as a matter of faith. Obviously the people rioting in the street, looting, stealing, burning things down, attacking people, murdering children, they're the trustworthy ones on all this.> All the merchandise in Target is insured. Stop caring about it more than people.
Target was not the only place attacked.
Moreover, you clearly have absolutely no idea how insurance works, anyway. Do you honestly think that, in the middle of all these pandemic shutdowns causing a massive drop in buisinesses' income while still leaving them to pay for rents means they're going to be able to afford another setback after their livelihoods were burned down by a bunch of jackasses who you've never done anything to?
Besides; Was Secoriea Turner's life insured? Will that mother get back her child from some bank?>Because you're white. That's the point.
Oh, so black people are psychic now, capable of seeing every police force in every single city, with every single cop, regardless of distance to them?
I find that pretty hard to believe.>Already discussed this in the post above. It's not the same situation as black people, atleast not in the US.
Yes, it's a different situation; They were thrown into gas chambers, hounded for centuries, had all their possessions stolen and routinely got kicked out of countries. Yet they somehow managed to become one of the top preforming minorities.
This I would suggest is due to a culture of strong family and support for one another.>"The Jew" sounds anti-semetic.
I didn't say "the Jew" as though it's a single individual.
I said "Jews", as it's a group of many people.>ALL people are killed mostly by people of their own race.
Do you have data to prove that? I'm skeptical that there's a major difference for most other races. I'd be rather shocked, for instance, if it's more likely a Jew kills another Jew than someone of any number of different races.>It's true for white people, but no one talks about white on white crime in the same way.
Probably because it doesn't appear to be happening at such a disproportional rate to their population.
As others have already pointed out to you; The homicide rate is far higher in the black population.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_crime_in_the_United_States#Homicide
"According to the US Department of Justice, African Americans accounted for 52.5% of all homicide offenders from 1980 to 2008, with Whites 45.3% and "Other" 2.2%. The offending rate for African Americans was almost eight times higher than Whites, and the victim rate six times higher. Most homicides were intraracial, with 84% of White victims killed by Whites and 93% of African American victims killed by African Americans."
13% of the population should be responsible for 13% of homicide. Or at least, close to it.
White people do not appear to be murdering at a higher rate given their population; At 63% of the population, they're only 45% of the homicide percentage.
Why would we care about white-on-white crime when it's so disproportionately lower, compared to black-on-black crime?>Because that can't be used to excuse a problem with the system itself.
I agree that police overuse of force is a problem; I do not agree that it's a racial one.
I'd like police accountability.
I would rather not defund police before you've got systems to take care of the things they needed the funding for. Frankly, I do not believe police are overfunded for the task at hand.
I think we can fix the issues of police unnaccountability, without putting people at risk.
I think it's also important to work to fix issues that cause black people to be massively over-represented to an insane degree in homicide rates. 13% of the population should absolutely NOT
be six times more likely of being killed in a homicide than 63% of the population.
It doesn't strike me as any 'excuse' being made here. I think that is just something you made up in your own head again.
You seem to do that a lot.
