Once again, for those new to World News Today.
I often repeat the talking points about prolonging the inevitable. I said it time after time, and I mean what I am saying.
WHEN COPS SEE A BLACK MAN WITH A FIREARM REGARDLESS OF IT BEING LEGAL OR ILLEGAL, THEY AUTOMATICALLY SHOOT THE BLACK MAN. EVEN AN UNARMED BLACK MAN JUST REACHING FOR A WALLET OR A DOOR HANDLE COULD BE KILLED BY THE COPS.
THE POLICE AND JUNK FOOD MEDIA TRY TO MAKE THE VICTIM, "THE BAD GUY" BY BRINGING UP, PAST CRIMINAL HISTORY, OFFENSIVE POSTINGS ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR THE FAMILY LIFE.
MANY WHITES (IN LARGE GROUPS) HAVE FIREARMS IN FRONT OF POLICE AND THEY NEVER GET SHOT OR KILLED. WHY AREN'T THEY AFRAID OF THEM?
WHENEVER SOMEONE COMPLAINS ABOUT LACK OF BLACK FATHERS, I CONTINUE TO DENOUNCE THIS BULLSHIT. I REMIND THEM THAT THE POLICE KILL BLACK FATHERS. THE POLICE LEAVE CHILDREN OF COLOR WITHOUT A BLACK FATHER. AND NO AMOUNT OF MONEY COULD BRING THE PEACE AND TRANQUILITY TO THE FAMILIES OF THOSE KILLED BY THE COPS.
FOR EVERY BAD COP, THERE WILL BE A DEAD COP!
I DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING ON THE INTERNET OR THE COP'S VERSION.
GUN VIOLENCE IS THE NUMBER ONE THREAT IN THE UNITED STATES.
DONALD J. TRUMP, REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS ARE INEPT. THEY ARE NUMB TO GUN VIOLENCE. THEY CONTINUE TO ALLOW FIREARMS IN THE HANDS OF TERRORISTS AND BAD COPS.
EXPECT MORE COPS SHOOTING UNARMED OR LEGALLY ARMED PEOPLE OF COLOR.
EXPECT COPS TO WALK WHEN THEY CLAIM THEY USED DEADLY FORCE BECAUSE THEY FEARED FOR THEIR LIVES.
EXPECT MORE MASS SHOOTINGS.
EXPECT GOOD COPS TO BE KILLED BY TERRORISTS.
POLICE DEPARTMENTS CONTINUE TO ALLOW BAD COPS AND CORRUPT POLICE UNIONS TO REIGN STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM UPON PEOPLE OF COLOR.
POLICE KILLING PEOPLE OF COLOR IS STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM.
BEING A COP IS A THANKLESS JOB. THEY CONTINUE TO SERVE AND PROTECT IN AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS JOB.
THOSE CHARGED ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A COURT OF LAW.
WE DON'T CONDONE VIOLENCE AGAINST LAW ENFORCEMENT OR ANY HUMAN BEING.
And now immigrants who want to live the American dream are killed by the police. We continue to see more and more incidents where unarmed people of color being killed by the police.
This stuff infuriates me.
A bride to be was killed by the Minneapolis Police. Justine Damond (nee Ruszczyk) was a 40 year woman who emigrated from Australia to be with her fiance and his family. She was a yoga and meditation teacher.
There was a call for a domestic dispute late night on Saturday. Two officers responded to the call and arrived in an alley in the Fulton neighborhood.
"At one point an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a women," a police statement reported to the Washington Post.

Officers did not turn on their body cameras when they approached Damond.
The two officers were placed in the freezer. The prosecutor must determine if their actions were justified.
Justine's family demands answers. Her step son took to social media to say that his "mum" was a true Sydneysider who was "passionate" and his "best friend."
"Basically my mum was shot for reasons I don't know," he said on social media. "I just know she heard a sound in the alley so then she called the police and the cops showed up and she was a very passionate woman, she probably thought something bad was happening and then next thing I know they take my best friend's life."
He added, "This is a very difficult time for our family," the statement said. "We are trying to come to terms with this tragedy and to understand why this has happened."
Justine grew up in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. She wanted to be married at the end of the month. Now her fiance and family will bury her on their wedding day.
The civil rights activist and Black Lives Matter address the controversy.
"For years, activists and community members have raised concerns about the 'shoot first, ask questions later' mentality amongst some police officers. Beyond that, police officers have routinely escaped accountability for perpetuating violence against civilians and have been allowed to kill with impunity. Justine Damond is the latest causality of a flawed system of policing, that is urgently in need of being overhauled. The fact that her case has been shrouded in a cloak of secrecy merely reinforces concerns surrounding a lack of transparency and accountability within this system," said Nekima Levy-Pounds, a local civil rights attorney and police reform activist.
She said that city's mayor Betsy Hodges and Gov. Mark Dayton (D) have failed the community. She is running for mayor against Hodges.
She said this is a "flawed system of policing."
"The tragic and senseless death of Justine Damond at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department illustrates everything that is wrong with our system of policing in the US," she said.
