    Shoot - yeah, you're right. Solitary confinement for 15+ years. A living hell.

    Police forces across the US have this problem. SO it is pretty fair to do so. in my area, we've had 2 national incidents already (Botham Jean, Atatiana Jefferson) and numerous other abuses that just stayed local.

    Good cops need to start holding their own accountable instead of forming a blue line. The problem is, they rarely do.

    if you ignore how there are Derrick Chauvin's in every police department that exist in this country, sure, you can tell yourself that.

    Please Don’t group criminals with protestors.

    Criminals don’t need an excuse to commit crimes.

    Criminals do however look for opportunities to commit crimes.

    Or you know you come off as a generalizing racist.

    I'm still not connecting how you're bringing literally any of them into this discussion. Where did it even come from? Because it has nothing to do with my post you responded to - https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...3#post53142963

    This is a pretty obvious dog whistle when you you were just complaining about races vs races, my dude.

    What’s that have to do with police brutality?

    Especially against those not proven guilty in a court of law.

    The examples are just the most egregious.

    The points still stand, though. People of color are far more likely to be arrested in routine policing than whites. They're more likely to be killed if they resist in any way. Laws target people of color (and the poor), such as criminal offenses for possession of marijuana and other drugs.

    The more damning statistics are thus: 1/3 blacks can expect to be jailed in their lifetime, and 1/6 latinos. Caucasians? 1/17. And when they're sentenced, they're far more likely to receive maximum sentences than whites.

    Remember that time Daniel Shaver was executed by a police officer? This is about him, too.
    Oh yeah, “whataboutism” at its finest. “Chauvin only committed one murder, but what about...” You can only make so many excuses before the argument becomes flimsy and falls apart. In this case, I think the media, politicians, the pissed off vigilantes are blowing it out of proportion. Not me.

    Yep, I just saw that Insurrectionist antagonist Cruz wasn't happy with Maxine Waters, and the House Republicans tried to censure her. Meanwhile, they have one that, all of the evidence is pointing to, that is a fucking pedophile, and they aren't saying shit about him.

    That's not whataboutism dude, words have meanings.

    Who are these vigilantes? Are they the same "they" that are also drug dealers and rapists? I'm confused as fuck, dude.

    The one minute or so clip of Chauvin reacting to the verdict has shot straight to the top of views and clips.

    You love to see it.

    The GOP truly are pieces of feces. Knowing Chauvin is likely guilty (verdict anytime now) they by any means want to get this killer off.

    It's signaling to the large racist base in the Republican Party.
    And Biden waited until the jury was sequestered before he made a fucking comment. Cruz, should be fucking lucky he isn't being tried for fucking sedition right now along with the other 400+ people that deserve it.

    I love Cruz complaining, Biden just hoped for the "right" verdict. He never specified what it was.

    Man, Republicans are just desperate to defend a cop who got convicted of murdering a man.

    I would think that they could only sentence for the most severe charge?
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.
