I think it is ironic how we often look at other countries, especially Middle Eastern and African countries, and quickly point out the flaws in their police and justice system, yet we fail to realize that America's police and justice system shares many of those flaws. We are very quick to stick our noses up at other countries, but I think we need to slow down and look at ourselves and work on our flaws.
Do I think that this police brutality incident will lead to a "war" within America? No. Do I believe that this will lead to a change within America? Yes, very much so.
I am not sure what to say about this whole thing but yes do think there is a big problem right here. I have seen on the news here just in the last few days that 2 cops shop a person that was just trying to feed the homeless and hungry. Now to me that is just down right crazy, how could you be shot over something like this?. One more thing just this week right here were I live there was a cop that selling drugs and when he got busted he beat his fellow officer half to death for turning him in. I ask myself all the time how can this go on and they don't get anything but a slap on the hand. Can you believe that the only thing that happen to that cop was they pulled his badge, and is no longer a officer, he should have went to jail just like anyone else.
I'm really sorry to hear about what is going in the US right now regarding this issue. Watching the Eric Garner arrest video still gives me chills and it is quite alarming how serious is this since the whole Fergusson issue with Mike Brown. I think America should do just more than protesting. It is not even well planned. So these people marching, are just really marching expecting that the court will change their minds?
Of course it is leading no where. We are just dividing among ourselves making ourselves vulnerable and bringing about issues (racism) back to the surface rather then eliminate them. As a matter of fact, I found a video that speaks for itself on the issue.
And there are a lot of others who feel and think the same way.
Definitely no organization whatsoever. This is why the solution is lagging as well. They are basically just marching and trying to have their voice be heard. I'm for peaceful protest, but at least organize it so people's time are not also wasted. Somebody should like educate our protesters in this matter.
Americans could learn a lot from the Filipinos who I would like to say are pros on doing protests. We have impeached 3 of our presidents simply by doing a peaceful protest. More unity is needed. I think that is the secret here.
It's not about the president caring, the president is a president like a corporation and the main job of any president is to increase revenue and to protect the interest of those that are in control. We have to stop thinking these people are on our side, they are not.While America is busy fighting wars overseas, there is a war going on in its own soil and I'm not sure if the President even really cares about this whole thing. I'm talking about the Againt the Cops protests happening in many different states now. This is pretty much leading to nowhere, the way I'm seeing it by the way. What's your opinion about it?
