That's weird. Usually the Blue Lives Matter crowd would be out in droves defending these cops. I wonder what's different this time?
I think the biggest difference here was how fast the cops were fired and charged. All the news commentators are happy at how fast the videos came out. I do think the way this was handled saved lives because the protests are quiet. Their voices have been heard in the proper way things were done. Now we just have to make sure the cops get convicted.
Agreed. Just hope this sets a better example.Black cops killing a black man is a lot more palatable to the Blue Lives Matter crowd than if he was black cops killing a white man under the exact same circumstances.
I only wish the response was this fast when one of their own is white and caught doing it.
