I absolutely agree with this. But we’re talking about a case in which someone shot two police officers. Saying they would be tougher on people of color is saying they went easier on him than a person of color because he was white. I have an extremely hard time believing the police in this instance cared at all about the person’s color. At the end of the day, he shot two of their own, people they served with and know.It's not about going easy on white folks, it's about going much harder on people of color. It's about treating a black man as a threat before that potential threat has even presented itself, whereas men proven to be violent aren't treated that way.
Maybe some people are saying they should be equally rough with the white gunmen. I'm not. I just don't think that every black man should be treated as a potential murder victim from the jump.

So you believe police cared if this guy was white or black after he shot two of their own?Huh? He's not reaching at all
