    Don’t worry there’s probably a better chance of them getting hit by a Tsunami while living in Iowa.

    I doubt the chance of a tsunami hitting Iowa is even remotely close to 1 in a million, while the chance of a black person being killed by police seems to average at least 1-2 in a hundred thousand.

    1 in 100,000 doesn’t seem like something we should be concerned about especially when in most cases it’s justified. Protesting alcohol makes more sense considering more people are killed by drunk drivers.

    The risk is actually 1 in 1000 for Black men, if you bothered actually reading the study.

    1 in 1000 is still not something to be concerned about when in most cases the cops are justified in their actions. My case stands.

    If it’s not something you care about, why are you posting about it?

    Cos the right-wing typically is distinguished by being dumb fucks in general. And also, the rest of the world having manners and not being the shitheads that 4chan is. See, if you have no boundaries, it's actually easy to create memes... If you have no taste, you can make a meme out of anything.

    Also, also, I think 4chan is actually anarchist rather than left or right. They'd join any political movement if that meant the world would burn down for their entertainment. So don't think they're actually right-wing, they're just mightily amused by Trump and everyone hating on each other. If the US broke out into a civil war tomorrow, 4chan would have to find a new hoster because the old one couldn't cope with the jerk off pics flooding the website. Degenerates be degenerates.

    If you're harassed by the police 2-4 times per week because you're black, that adds up to 104-208 interactions per year. By that statistic if you interact with police on that regular of a basis and are a young black man, you have a very high probably of being shot and killed by the police at some point in the next 5-10 years.

    Your case was hyperbolic nonsense, and you're still trying to defend it for some bizarre reason.

    Meanwhile, here's the perfect example of someone this law would leverage additional penalties on for wasting law enforcement time and being a racist bitch.

    And I totally believer her "black dad" means she's incapable of being racist as she accuses the dude of mugging someone and stealing their clothes, being illegal, claiming there's a second person behind him that will "snap her neck" and more.

    And the additional penalties would be well justified, because that's a malicious waste of police time and resources (our tax dollars) that puts a man who is simply going about his day at risk.

    Now I know you’re talking out your ass. No one gets harassed by the police 2 to 4 times per week.

    Wrong. Here is one case: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_Sampson

    He was arrested/stopped/searched from 2008-2013 288 fucking times, for "trespassing" at his place of employment.

    I am sure I can find probably thousands of similar fucking cases.

    Not concerned about 1 case. You’re making it sound like it happens to everyone that’s black or a much higher rate than 1.
