About 3 months ago when this first happened my extremely liberal white mother in law was asking my opinion on this and I said it was too early to tell, but I saw no evidence of racism and certain factors that indicated it might eventually be ruled a good shooting.
She asked what kind of crackpot, tea party, right wing racist nut jobs I was aligning myself with that I've become so brainwashed I can't see the obvious racism here. The cop was white, the suspect was black, the city is x-percent black, the police department is only y-percent black. What other proof could I possibly need to see to know race was a factor.
Last week I put something on FB about how Holder and Obama are making it worse by letting their distrust for law enforcement influence the rest of the country. She told me it wasn't healthy to have so much hate and anger in my heart.
And the woman remains mystified as to why the party I grew up in now makes me want to put a round in the TV every time anybody from it speaks.
The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.
