    This guy shot and killed 3 cops in Louisiana last year.....Never forget.



    Police say 29-year-old Long, a former Marine from Kansas City, was wearing all black and carrying a rifle when officers first encountered him at about 8:40 a.m. Shots were reported fired two minutes later, and the first report of an officer down came in two minutes after that.
    By 8:50, Long had been killed, along with deputy Garofola and two Baton Rouge police officers. Law enforcement who spoke Monday said Long was killed by a Baton Rouge Police Department SWAT team from more than 100 yards away, and said they're convinced Long would have continued the rampage targeting police officers otherwise.

    Remember when this guy shot and killed 5 cops in Dallas last year.....Never forget.



    The ambush started with gunshots that killed five officers and sent screaming crowds scrambling for cover. It ended when a Dallas police bomb squad robot killed a gunman after negotiations failed. Investigators identified the dead attacker as Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, of Mesquite, Texas, a military veteran who'd served in Afghanistan.

    you asked for a study to show evidence of discrimination
    i gave you a study showing evidence of discrimination

    is there a magnitude of % not met to qualify under discrimination?

    If your only evidence that widespread discrimination exists in our country against blacks is a study from 17 years ago that impacts maybe 10% of the black population, you don't have much.

    I wonder how many white people didn't get a job they were more qualified for due to affirmative action?

    I don't disagree with your line of thinking, but weren't there several incidents Friday evening into Saturday morning with white supremacist groups and neo-Nazi groups attacking civilians. At that point, this is no longer a peaceful assembly. Not directed at you, but the hypocrisy of many knows no bounds. These were hate groups, spewing hate and looking for violence. Just looking at the message of some of these groups heading into this event disgusted me. No different than the disgusting displays from BLM in the past. Far too many view one as one thing and one as other, whatever suits their political agenda or personal beliefs, while they are exactly the same thing.

    James Alex Fields Jr. of Ohio was charged with second-degree murder in Charlottesville, Va., on Saturday after he smashed a car into a line of cars in an episode that left a 32-year-old woman dead and injured at least 19 other people who were protesting a rally staged by white nationalists.

    What We Know

    • Mr. Fields, 20, was born in Kenton, Ky., to Samantha Lea Bloom.

    • He was living with his mother until “five or six months ago” when he moved to his own apartment in Maumee, Ohio, according to an interview that Ms. Bloom gave to The Toledo Blade. They moved to Ohio from Kentucky about year ago because of her job, she said.

    • Mr. Fields’s father died before he was born, an aunt, Pam Fields, said on Sunday. His mother was a paraplegic and was in a wheelchair.

    Ms. Fields said she had not seen her nephew, whom she remembered as a “very quiet little boy” more than five times in the past 10 years.

    Military records show that Mr. Fields entered the Army on Aug. 18, 2015, around the time his mother wrote on Facebook that he had left for boot camp. Less than four months later, on Dec. 11, his period of active duty concluded. It was not immediately clear why he left the military.

    I read in one of the articles online, he dropped his cat off to his mom before going to the protest. Anyone that has ever had a cat knows, you leave out food and water they are good for a couple days. I think this guy had some dark intentions and possibly knew he wouldn't be back for extended time.

    He didn't leave voluntarily.

    He's probably better off getting the chair. After his buddies saw the pic of him infront of the car, they would kill him for dressing like he's black.
