Maybe because there was not enough evidence to present to indict and they were just forded to hold a grand jury in order to be politically correct. I said "maybe".

Police always touch the quarter panel of vehicles they have stopped to apply their fingerprints.

Interesting. What is the reasoning behind doing that?


To associate themselves with the vehicle should an incident occur where the vehicle leaves the scene.

Still, no evidence of racism.

Can you prove a white man would not have been shot?

This has been gone over before.

Even the DOJ found no evidence to somehow claim corruption of the Grand Jury process.

Perhaps you can provide us with the names of those white men shot in the back.

You asked for this. Jesse James. One of many. Not to mention Wild Bill Hickok. Smile

Not by the SC police best I can recall.
It was that dirty little coward who shot Mr. Howard that laid poor Jesse in his grave.

Read what I wrote.

Where did I say white men were shot?

I asked if anyone could prove that if the runner were white, he would not have been shot.

Evidence is not the same thing as proof.

That he shot a black man in the back is evidence (whether compelling evidence or not, ymmv).

As well as the fact that the officer was previously cited for incidents involving black citizens. AFAIK, he was never cited for abusing citizens who were other than black.

Why do you continue to cite North Carolina?

This incident occurred in South Carolina.

Your references show no evidence of racism in this case. None!


My mistake. Note that South Carolina is ALSO in the top ten of the most racist states:

That he shot a black man is not evidence of racism.

He was cited for one other physical encounter with a black man and he was cleared of that charge.

As to the documented South Carolina history of racial profiling by police, see:

http://www.ibtimes.com/walter-scott-deat......-1874008

Also, it appears that they will be taking another look at the prior incident you referred to.

I read what you wrote. Really, you're so desperate to defend this officer that you now insist we prove a negative?
Why are you so invested in holding onto the idea that there is no racism in the US?

I am in no way defending this officer.

Why are you and others so invested in the idea that everything is racially motivated when it has to do with unfortunate outcomes for blacks?

Not so much when it is the other way around.

No. Just the justice, enforcement, economic, and political systems in this country. Otherwise not so much.

The other way around?
Please point to the dozens of unarmed white males shot by Black officers.

I wasn't referring to black officers shooting whites.

I was noting that when there are bad outcomes for other than black people, not much notice is taken. Like all of the black on white crimes committed that go unnoticed or unmentioned in the media.

But, if you want an example of a black officer shooting an unarmed white man, how about the killing of 20 year old Dillon Taylor?

Where was the outrage?

And, there was no DOJ investigation.

And, I don't remember any rioting or destruction.

Do you even know his name?
