Of course, this couldn't be because the vehicles had more violations or that the drivers broke more traffic laws.

Nah, has to be racial!

Read the article. In answer to your "this couldn't be because the vehicles had more violations or that the drivers broke more traffic laws", that does not appear to be the case given this:

"Two-thirds of stops that failed to produce a ticket or arrest involved black drivers."

Unless you are saying the cops just went easier on black drivers who were breaking the law, and tended to let them off with a warning.

Where did I show any support for this man and what he did?

I think his firing and the charges filed are entirely appropriate.

I do, however, have empathy for his wife.

And, your question was uncalled for...says a lot about you.

He looks a little crazy. While that is an unfair evaluation, I tend to avoid people who look crazy and so far it's served me well.

Okay, that's great.

However, your only previous post in this thread prior to my comment was in support of police - trying to justify their actions - in North Charleston who were making excessive pretextual stops of black drivers.

Given how the shooting incident apparently came about, well, you connect the dots.

Hmmm. I'm wondering who is applauding what, and whether RNK is actually applauding what he thinks he is applauding.

That is, is the animated gif in sympathy with Bob's comment or criticizing it?

The DA can not get get elected without the support of the apples and so the apples can do as they will.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Following is a rather good example of how the story would have been reported had the video not surfaced. And I'm sure many here would have agreed with and defended it:

Yep.

What are the odds on the verdict in this case?

As the evidence stands now, I don't think the case will go to trial. There will most likely be a plea bargain.
