  1. One tenth of the US population makes up half of the prison population.
  2. If posting facts is against the rules then I take full responsibility.
  3. I was unaware that posting facts was frowned upon in this establishment.
  4. Agreed, but many, including an unemployed QB want to make excuses rather than take responsibility for actions.
  5. 10% of the US population does not account for 50% of the prison population because of mistreatment.
  6. Absolutely. Take a look at the number of AIDS cases in Saudi Arabia compared to other places that celebrate sodomites.
  7. I was originally referring to the committing of crimes. I posted the statistics that state certain groups are more likely to commit crimes than other groups and therefore I have no problem with racial profiling. Someone else posted something about wrong conviction rates. I realize its apples and oranges, but the apples are more likely to fall off the tree no matter how we spin it.
  8. Wrongful convictions make things look a little better, but they still commit a disproportionate amount of crime. "There is evidence in the official police-recorded figures that black Americans are more likely to commit certain types of crime than people of other races. While it would be naïve to suggest that there is no racism in the US criminal justice system, victim reports don’t support the idea that this is because of mass discrimination. Higher poverty rates among various urban black communities might explain the difference in crime rates, although the evidence is mixed. There are few simple answers and links between crime and race are likely to remain the subject of bitter argument."
  9. According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) in 2013 black males accounted for 37% of the total male prison population, white males 32%, and Hispanic males 22%. White females comprised 49% of the prison population in comparison to black females who accounted for 22% of the female population. 13ish % of the population does not achieve these results by obeying the law.
  10. The SJW in the article you posted behaved himself and he went about his way, right? If he is upset about being profiled then he should use his energy in a more productive way. Rather than be mad at law enforcement he should reach out to his community because they are profiled for a reason and rightfully so.
  11. I have no need for law enforcement as I believe they do nothing to prevent crime and only show up after the fact. That said, I do know how to behave myself when in the presence of officers and do not know why it is so hard for others to do the same.
  12. He physically assaulted the officer, so yes, he deserved what he got. Had he not been a little punk ##### and cooperated he would still be making videos for youtube.
  13. That officer is just as concerned about his safety as the person being stopped. If you cooperate and don't do anything stupid you're going to be fine. I have yet to see a video where a cop approaches someone and starts shooting for no reason. The common theme you see in these so called police brutality videos are people not following orders, reaching for things and not keeping hands in sight, and not staying still.
  14. When you are stopped you have 2 options - cooperate or not cooperate. If those being stopped chose to cooperate more often they would find they would have less problems. I also believe racial profiling is justified based on crime/race statistics in our country. You want to know why crime rates in Asia are so low? NO DIVERSITY
  15. There are many things in the world that are hard to do, but you have to do them or you're just ####### yourself in the ###. It's time some take responsibility and let go of the victim card.
  16. I guess they could also win the powerball and get struck by lighting tomorrow as well, but they probably shouldn't worry about either. If you did nothing wrong then cooperate and go about your day or act like a fool and get shot.
  17. This kid deserved what he got and so does anyone else that acts in such a manner. I have no sympathy for these types. Why is it so hard to cooperate with a police officer?
  18. Because this guy whining on his blog is seeking attention in a way that many do with their youtube videos where they are standoffish and resistant to police questioning. If you have done nothing wrong you have nothing to worry about. I have no sympathy for those that go out and try to get a rise out of law enforcement and end up with a chest full of hollow points. We can all whine and cry about profiling all we want, but crime statistics show that profiling is warranted and until groups take a proactive approach at fixing their behavior they will continue to be profiled.
  19. I am a minority, just not a black one and I can tell you how I feel around law enforcement.
  20. If you have done nothing wrong it is quite easy. The only reason it would be difficult is if you have something to hide. If you cooperate, you move on, but if you want to be standoffish and resist arrest then get prepared to deal with the consequences.
  21. Blog, snapface, all the same. He was seeking attention. Lots of people have been stopped and questioned because they match a certain description. Cooperate and move on.
  22. The why did he put it on snapface? He wasn't selling it for money, but he was sure seeking attention. If he did nothing wrong then he should have cooperated and went about his day.
