Why is it so hard to arrest a white person for killing a black person?

Even when you have a damned video.

1. White Cop

It's a double whammy. The police stand by one another like no other cult. And it absolutely is a CULT.

4. I just heard one of the announcers that there's evidence that does not support criminal charges!

What the fuck!

It always smells like they're trying to find reasons not to charge a white perpetrator.

3. Racism. History. Tradition. Money. Power.

America is a failed state.

5. Institutional Racism.

There is no other answer.

Sure, people who want to be closet racists and cop jock sniffers can torture themselves into some other contrived answer, but if you strip away the BS and deflection and special pleading, it all boils down to the same thing.

Institutional Racism.

8. At the end of the day, not a god-damned thing will change.

A gaggle of leading wypipo will pay lip-service and say the right things, promise fundamental changes and sternly point fingers.

Just like last time.

And the time before that.

And the time before that.

And the time before that.

We're going to do the precise same thing over and over again, expect different results and pretend it's relevant progress.



And in two more days, or three more weeks... we'll see another black man killed without cause at the hands of law enforcement. And the American wheel will have made another useless rotation.

9. "I was in fear for my life."

That covers just about any behavior no matter how awful.
