        No. There was not a cop crushed to death either on January 6.
        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

            Ok, cops were assaulted, they were sprayed with pepper sprays of various types- and it takes less than that for a black person to be shot. Unless you honestly think a black man could have beaten a cop with a hockey stick and cops around him would not fight back....

            If you are trying to pretend that the reaction on Jan 6 for all of those white people would have been exactly the same had they been black- you are part of the problem- so at least go along with that premise. All you need to do to SEE that is how protests were dealt with during the summer compared to that.

            Correcting to pretending that the stroke that the cop had was going to happen anyway is rather insane. And just adds to the imbalance that is pretty clear to the rest of us how white people are treated by the cops than anyone with any kind of skin tone.

            So just stop.

              There are degrees to this thing, and right now we need to focus on the people being assaulted/killed unjustifiably. We have to worry about the big stuff before we go deeper into the nuanced issues.
              I disagree. This isn't nuanced, this is a big question if even the basic action would have been different. I am to the point that I ask that even in what seems to be an justified use of a gun.

              Just a few weeks ago, a black man was forced from his truck because the cops must have thought he didn't deserve to own one. And a cop decided that using a real weapon was justified in dealing with a black man trying to get away- when the exact same situation with a ARMED white guy, nothing happened- they let him run and caught up with him later. Armed with a gun in the cab within reach- they let him go. But a fleeing black person was targeted with what was supposed to be a taser. That alone is massively different.

              So would the cop have done anything different, even to the point of risking the people around by shooting, if they were white?

              Right or wrong isn't the question.

                      That use of force was so justified that is one video of a cop shooting someone that I WILL watch.

                        And I STILL understand that it's most likely to be justifiable- I really understand that. But I STILL question if they would have reacted differently had the girl been white. Would they have taken a chance hitting a bystander?
                        Watch the video again. If it was my daughter on the other end of the knife, I'd have asked why it took so long to shoot. Regardless of who was attacking her.

                        I know that's a shameless appeal to emotion. But I'll stand by it.

                          I wasn't trying to pretend anything. Just pointing out that you guys are incorrect. No cop got shot. No cop got beaten to death. I realize that real facts don't matter to the circle jerk club, but I tend to think they're important.

                            But see, its society and the media who are responsible for all this dis-unity and hatred in the country.

                            Not dumbass apologists like Hovey who will come up with any and all excuses to justify the killing of unarmed black people, because, you know, that's just the way things go. The sensible, common sense wisdom of the midwestern dooshbag.

                              No, you're nitpicking and quibbling, just so you can appear above the fray of partisan politics, and all superior-like.

                              You should get together with Sic and buy him a beer, and talk about how great the two of you are.

                                Maybe in Hollywood, but not in real life. I would dare say an Olympic gold medalist couldn't do that with any certainty, let alone your average cop.
