[QUOTE]Originally posted by glassman: [QB] I've subscribed (free, not paid) to several different "information services" in the last few years that follow the "cops versus the people" problem that is exploding. It might surprise you ray to know that cops kill one person in the USA every 8 hours. Cop killings are up this year over last by 80%- basically it's gone form one cop dead per week to almost two. versus 3 dead "perps" PER DAY.. IT SOUNDS LIKE WAR TO ME I too have lived a large protion of mylife on the race line. I was Jr High in PG County md when they began the bussing. it was a nightmare for all of us regardless of color. I repoed cars in the greater wash DC area for a long time. That brought the whole issue right in my face with no "backup". I have involuntarily spent the last ten years in the most poverty stricken large region of the US. It's commonly understood in MS that 'The Delta' is like a foreign country even to the rest of MS. Since i am still here and surrounded by the most overt racists in the US on BOTH sides of the race issue, i just keep my head low and watch. I can tell you this, it feels like this place will go up like a cup of gasoline on fire with just hte least spark. We had a young black kid killed about four years ago by the cops. The kid was a witness to a drug bust. he ran up to the cop car where the perps were being searched grabbed a bag of white powder the cops had tossed on the hood and took off runnin'. He ran too slow and did not survive apprehension. One cops was white and one was black. One cop just happened to be my son's karate teacher. I still beleive he used excessive force and over-responded. He's long gone from our city- he was not tried. We had no riots over this death, which was totally unnecessary while the Ferguson shooting was most likely a justified shooting. There's been too many covered up abuses in the past, so it's not going to take much to explode. Add to the mix the new cost of food. $5.50 for a pound of burger is crazy stupid. it pisses me off and i can afford it. Just how do you think people feel who can't? H-brger is like the comfort food of the masses. It's always been cheap an accessible... not today- it's all the things adding up and then- yes the media won't stop reminding everybody of all the stuff 24-7... Powder keg, primed for a match, and i don't know how it won't blow, but we've been here before and got thru it.... it's sad that we keep coming back to the same basic place. [/QB][/QUOTE]
