        At least, it seems, we agree that there is racial bias at play here.

        We’re not agreeing on that for this particular case. I told you already that it’s a male vs. female way of handling things. Males pounce, females don’t.

    And again, this doesn’t hold water. The male cop made contact with the teens at exactly the same time as the female cop. Why is he cuffing the teen on his back receiving blows, and not the teen on top delivering those blows? You even see the “males pounce” male cop pull the Latino kid aside so he could get to the black kid.

        Obviously personal biases can’t be outlawed or mandated-against at a civilian level. But when you’re employed in the public arena, particularly as a public servant, you need to be mindful of those biases and make sure they don’t come into play when performing your job. Otherwise you end up treating people not as individuals but as statistics, and you might unduly tackle and restrain a black teen who had nothing to do with contributing to those statistics.

        I disagree that they shouldn’t come into play. For example, during 911 - they were randomly frisking people, including pregnant white mothers boarding planes. I don’t agree that we need to be stupid about who are the best candidates to frisk. You see, I deal in facts and reason. Democrats deal in emotion and so are willing to chance that more likely candidates for terrorism are boarded but unchecked.

    We made a bunch of dumb decisions in response to the tragedy of 9/11 that are still plaguing us to this day. This is hardly apropos for arguing in support of bias in policing. By this token Jan 6 (along with most attempts/acts of terrorism here in the US) should’ve put white conservatives on every law enforcement’s radar permanently.


Really, even before that some folks of that description should have been in the cross hairs. Militia groups and soverign citizens can be among the worst law enforcement can encounter.

Although in some places they have contacts among local Sheriff's and so on highlighting the overlap in some of these things that makes the problems even worse in the end.

Hell, I think in Portland there was even a police officer who contacted some of these folks causing problems so they could get out before the major police presence showed up so they could say they were never there or causing a problem at all.

It is sickening stuff in the grand scheme of things that is for sure.

Hardly unique to conservatives or applies to all of them, but there are major concerns with regards to violence or domestic terrorism in the fold at the extreme and one can easily argue it is becoming more of the mainstream position.
