Sadly, we still need a "white guy shoots black teen" thread

More fun news about white men shooting black teenagers until they are dead


Everything else aside, how could basic facts like "Was he in or out of the car when shot to death" and "Was there a pistol in the SUV?" be in doubt? This obviously just an initial reaction, but it seems like you should be able to find out the former in all but the weirdest situations and have a pretty good chance at finding out the latter. Seems like someone on the investigative/prosecution side fucked up.

Well, it's the same prosecution team that failed to put George Zimmerman away, so...yeah.

A good reflection on the case by, of all people, an actor from Grey's Anatomy. Worth a watch:

I've never seen that man before in my life, but that was very, very good the way he put all of that.

You know you're desperate when making your graphs upside down is the only way to make things seem like an improvement.

I also note it says "murders".
Which presumably does not include deaths ruled justified by stand your ground.

Lets not even get into the fact that the real problem with guns is that there are about twice as many gun suicides a year than murders.

If for no other reason than it would be really difficult for such violence to fall under the purview of "white guy shoots black teen".

EDIT:
And I know I'm feeling weird again because the first thing I wanted to do was see how the suicide method stats for countries where firearms are more restricted have changed in the past couple of years. Going to not do that.

In lieu of having a general "racial stuff" thread, I'll just put this here. If anyone thinks of a better thread title, post it and I'll change this one.

The Case For Reparations It's another long Atlantic article, one of their better ones.

Dunn convicted of murder, gets life without parole.

That's the guy who killed the kid in the SUV in Florida for playing music too loudly. Seeing as, y'know, there have been so many at this point that it's hard to keep track of which is which.

The kicker on that one is that the indiegogo fundraiser for the Defense Fund for people arrested while demonstrating has less than 10% of its goal at time of writing.

Rudy Giuliani still a complete sack of shit, news at 11
Giuliani: ‘White police officers wouldn’t be there if you weren’t killing each other.’

Stay classy, Rudy!

I hate the tired old trope that is "black on black crime". Why can't people understand that almost all crime is intra-racial? This is commentary on segregation not commentary on fucking societal breakdown in a specific race! People are fucking stupid and this shit pisses me off! SO MAD RIGHT NOW.

Put another way, White on White crime is out of control!!! Possibly even more so than black on black crime.
