Sandra Bland's Suicide

But when it's not police brutality it's because of racism... Yeah, i'm tired of it too, but until this stuff stops happening as often (police brutality/killing of a certain race) then the media probably won't stop so that each news station can help push their respective agendas... It's sad that this is the world we live in...


Is it really happening more often than it has in the past or is the media just covering it more often ?

I think there would be less flaming and less upset people if there was two threads, one looking at it from one point of view, the other thread, the other point.

I haven't looked into it to know(there are probably some studies and statistics out there) but the fact stands that it just needs to happen less...

That's what I was going to say. Also, such events could be on the rise for a multitude of reasons. The recent riots in Ferguson and such have probably raised a lot of tensions nationally, so both parties have gotten a little more volatile / wary because of this. The point is, violence isn't the answer, I know there're peaceful protestors too, but everybody loves to overshadow them in order to report on the bad ones. The media does create a lot of tension because the job of the media is to grab one's attention, and they know just how to write about the situation to make it seem more brutal than it really is. I don't condone violence, I don't condone violence at all, I don't think either party should be perpetrating it. But the fact is, there will always be bad eggs on both sides, and sometimes, they die, they get caught, etc. I'm not saying we should devalue all these cases possibly being police brutality, all I'm saying is that people should stop panicking and saying that everyone is bad and the MAN (as in, the authorities) ARE OUT TO GET US, etc. And vice versa, cops shouldn't be thinking that all african americans are "out to get them" now too. People shouldn't judge a group based on a thing that one of them does.

The fact is, every once in awhile, humanity shows itself to be an awful thing. Sometimes events that show just how awful people can be happen in droves, there will always be awful people in the world, but sometimes , there will be a load of them being reported on all at once. This may very well calm down or quell in the future, hopefully it will not last long.

What I will say is that I feel terribly for Sandra in this situation, regardless of what happened. The woman was apparently fighting demons of awful proportion, a miscarriage and general mental health problems, imagine the anguish and pain that was going through her mind that day. I don't think that she should've lashed out the way she did, but as someone with issues myself I can empathize, regardless of what happened to her, I hope she's at peace now. She seemed like she got dealt a lot of crap in her life that was not deserved, and in the end made some poor choices. We may never know what happen to her, but I hope she rests in peace. It is very sad when a person goes out battling those kinds of demons until it might eventually take them to their grave...

Personally i'm leaning with suicide. My fear is race baiters in the media are going to used this just to cause a riot. As I have said in the other thread I will wait for the reports then base my final opinion off of that unless new info comes in.

I don't even understand the mindset of people wanting to start more riots. I know that some want to milk this as long as they can for publicity's sake, but I'd rather not have Texas break out into a looting spree, personally, seeing as how I'd rather not have guys brawling around me as I try and sprint out the door and make a beeline for my car. I'm really praying that no riots go down. I live in a very diverse apartment complex, and while everyone seems relatively nice or at least neutral I would rather NOT get looted or beaten black and blue.

Stupid personal qualm.

It's probably not going to happen but the idea of riots breaking out makes me very worried.

News media making news up to make money off eyeclicks?

That's the most annoying thing about this crap. I'm starting to wonder if these clowns share the same circus tent when they come to town.
