Oakland, CA—Bay Area Rapid Transit police had arrested Oscar Grant. He resisted and died as a result. Was it excessive force, an accident or something else?
The truth is I don’t care. When someone engages in risky behavior such as resisting police there is always that chance they could lose their life. Save the fighting for the courtroom since you can’t do that on the street.
This is a case of White cops trying to keep order in an area populated by Blacks. In this instance, as soon as there were signs of a conflict every Black kid with a cell phone camera whipped it out and recorded the event.
I’m not sure what happened other then the lad took a calculated risk and gambled away his life.
This kind of an event is ugly for every cop. You don’t want these things to happen but unfortunately sometimes they do. Being a cop is risky too. You can be killed or punished emotionally for the rest of your life should you accidentally kill someone.
Having worked in a ghetto I know that police are hated and that the locals feel that laws are only for rich Whit folks to obey. That's the prevailing ghetto attitude, that’s always reinforced by Liberal politicians stinks.
I can’t imagine what it’s like to do police work with a bunch of sneering little pukes shooting video hoping to egg on the event so they can make a splash on YouTube. Here are three videos from this event. You can listen to the jerks taunting the police.
