Maybe it's occurring so much, people have grown weary of reading about it.

I think it's because most innocent victims of police brutality are more likely to be black. I believe there is less inhibition for the trigger happy cops to pull the trigger black victims.

That said, Dillon Taylor's case is just as tragic. It should bolster the need for serious police reforms.

I am totally against the current legal standard that gives too much weight to the officer's judgment in such situations.

I think if an innocent person is killed, you cannot just excuse it because the policeman was scared. The burden should be on him to prove it.

The safety concerns of innocent civilians should trump safety concerns of the cops in my opinion.

Because it's not as pervasive, nor as fatally wounding as the prejudice of whites against blacks.

Another story of excessive police force against unarmed African American kids
Problem is, and I've had this happen many times, I make a comment... Get called liberal by conservative friends and conservative by liberal friends. I mention other parts of the story and get called racist. So sometimes it's better to hold my opinion because no matter what I'd say, on either side of an issue, I lose.

Part of the problem too, aside from race...is that there seems to be a flourishing problem of police brutality in enough cases, that it's drawing media attention. They should display better conduct than the average joe. But, the average joe...if he/she were to whip out a gun on a bunch of unarmed teens...would be in jail. So the average joe seems to be held to a different standard than police. That is a problem.

Have you considered that the reason for a higher percentage of unjustified police actions are due to the characteristics of the local community, with high violent crime being a paramount factor?

Really, a cop gets a call about a violent crime in the area and since an crimes are committed mostly by persons in a reasonable small area the victims characteristics match that of the offender.

Are you referring to the pool party incident? If so the actions of the host and story do not engender much trust..

Apparently since it was a party as rental agreement was needed [1]. Furthermore, the host had a DJ that played music laden with profanities. When interviewed she never specifies HOW MANY persons she invited, did not produce a rental agreement for the pool, nor a permit to have the DJ preform.

Next, the family and host incriminate themselves by saying they had cases of food and water. Now we have the host claiming (without evidence) that those that jumped the pool were dissociated to the unspecified persons at the event.

Her story stinks and the cops actions are not much better. Screw them both.
