    I don't recall either claim.
    I did recently criticize some failed evidence
    recently, but it was for a different claim.

    This time, you only offer reasons for not
    providing evidence. I remain unconvinced.
    In summary....
    I see disparate coverage of race in the media.
    Nothing offered shows otherwise.

    This seems one of those occasions where
    the cop is fully grabbed by the short hairs.
    (Please excuse the mental image.)

    Prosecution sounds like a good start.

    I'm loving the 'the media won't report this story I found in the media' vibes.

    Present your evidence for such a position. I believe you are extremely biased and uninformed thus not in the right place to make such statement honestly.

    That's not sarcastic. It's a request and my honest assesment of Revoltingest on the subject of media treatment and representation of minorites in the US. If it were I would have added /sarcasm at the end of the post to signify a sarcatic tone.

    As I've said, it's what I observe in the media.
    The articles linked here regarding the murderous
    cop are 2 pieces of data.

    Do you see race of cops & race of victims covered
    equally regarding the races being swapped?
    White cops shooting whites
    Black cops shooting whites
    White cops shooting blacks
    Black cops shooting blacks.
    I'm just asking for your observation...not proof.

    We've seen that before as well, only for the piggies to be acquitted and exonerated.

    Au contraire, but it benefits from a keen witted audience.

    Difficult to say for black cops on whites since black people aren't that numerous and underepresented in the police force. I can't recall this happening even thouh it certainly did at some point. I think the story of that Montana woman shot b the cops she called was the last time such a story broke. It made the covers of national newspapers and international ones too. The cop was punished fortunately.

    Black cops shooting blacks and white cops shooting whites are about equally reported and both inscribe themselves in the long history of racist violence in the US. Though the former is much less reported than the later because it happens much more rarelly.

    Note that only a minority of police shootings are reported, those that look suspicious or unjust else you would see about four different ones a day since cops kill about 1200 Americans every year.

    So now it's extremist to use a pejorative against a very guilty group with a vast and deep history of abusing and slaughtering those they are supposed to "serve and protect?"
