To point blame at the police isn't clever at all.

It's because of 'the cops' that you don't live in a war zone. You can't tarnish the entire system because of some bad decisions by officers. The fundamental issue is America's prehistoric gun control laws. You take away the right to own a gun and you won't see many shootings. If nobody has a gun then there's less reason for the police to have them. Just like in this country.

The second amendment was written in the 18th century. Time to wake up and smell the coffee.

Disproves all BLM bullshit. Interesting that black cops are 3x more likely to use their weapon than white.

Both heavily rely on Heather MacDonald's ideas, from here wiki
She has written that welfare programs serve as a "dysfunction enabler"[10] and that food stamps cause an "unhealthy dependence".[11][12] She has criticized American immigration policy as "importing another underclass", referring to Hispanics, which has the "potential to expand indefinitely".
Deffo a good source mate.

How people like Stormzy etc are penning open letters beggars belief - Pretty sure he makes quite a lot of references to guns in his tunes - actively promoting criminality and gun culture. I mean even in his video he references one of his mates having a gun in his little nike side bag.

How is this person going to represent a "positive" voice to young black people?

Why are people marching in London over two killings in America - social media has got people gassed?

What about Syrian lives matter or Chinese lives matter?

Why no one marching about Tony Blair war crimes - how many mandem would be in that march?

Complete load of shite, for example
Complaint: Police always targeting us, they always messing with the black man.
Fact: A city where the majority of citizens are black (Baltimore for example) …will ALWAYS have a higher rate of black people getting arrested, it will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting stopped, and will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting killed, and the reason why is because a city with those characteristics will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks committing crime. The statistics will follow the same trend for Asians if you go to China, for Hispanics if you go to Puerto Rico, for whites if you go to Russia, and the list goes on. It’s called Demographics
This doesn't address the complaint at all, the whole post consists of this.

Edit - read the full BBC article, at least Philip Stinson has some sense.
