And of course this turns into a black/white thing. Fucks sake.
Is it mentioned why the cops even opened fire to begin with? Maybe I missed that part.

What happened was tragic and absolutely horrible, but that should never stop it from being discussed politically. If something happens that legitimately backs up your politocal stance then you have every right to point out that it does so.

With that being said, it is extremely sad to see people spin a story about an innocent child dying at the hands of officers who couldnt have been aware of him into an example of violent racial discrimination.

I'm not sure if you're just trying to start False Equivalency: The Thread or if you seriously can't grasp the difference between shooting an unarmed suspect and someone the police aren't even aware of being hit in a crossfire.

Also playing "Where is the outrage?" for a story that only just went up 5 hours ago?



You know that if this happened to a black kid, BLM would have a shitfest over it. They'd make some excuse, like they ALWAYS do.


When have they done that over a black person being killed by officers who had no way of knowing he was there?

I'm saying that because they do things like protest when a white officer shoots a black man on impulse, even when the black person has a list of convicted crimes. They seem to think that everything, no matter what parameters has to do with race .

And I'm saying that you are accusing them of getting outraged over something I have never seen them be outraged over, and you have not provided any examples of them doing so.

I'll ask again

I'm not saying it shouldn't, but it should be directly relatable and not inferred. In any case, I don't see what this case has to do with BLM other than "Why aren't you upset over this", which is a bullshit excuse that anyone could use for any cause. The fact that this cause is controversial is bad enough, but used as a politically motivated cherry pick is quite another.

Yeah, I can't say I don't see your point there.

Okay friendo they have never had the chance to do anything over this specific event (because it hasn't happened), but I'm just saying that if it WERE to happen, knowing the group they would certainly do something.

Yep. After digging up the case:

The officers involved were charged within 3 days of the shooting. So the system worked as it was suppose to. People don't need to protest when the system actually works properly. Also, the judge dropped a gag order almost immediately which forbid everyone involved, including witnesses, from speaking with the press. So this would have dropped out of the news cycle pretty quick instead of snowballing up to 24/7 media outrage.

So yes, this thread is just shameless partisan swing at false equivalency. Not even a good one either. -.-

What makes an attack racially motivated? The perpetrator and victim being different races?

So what you're aaying is that there has never been an instance where a black person has been killed by police officers through an accident they had no way of preventing?

Yeah, ok

According to the current state of Society, yes.

It's called a hypothesis. An educated prediction.
EDIT: and no, not in BLM's life. If so, please give me a new story telling this,
