You sound as if there was yet another conspiracy by the C.I.A. to implicate one ethnic community in crimes that undermine U.S. society. Do you really believe it?

I can't  comment on this because what you said is totally new for me. Drugs started their irruption in Western society in the 1970s in earnest, thanks to the Hippie movement. I don't see any connection to Blacks here.

You may care to know that among the Blacks residing in China, a disproportionate number of them is also engaged in drug peddling. It's seldom Whites. It's very often Blacks or SE Asians.

I wish you could lay off twisting my words. This is tantamount to lying and slandering.

I have  ...

"But anyone who feels in mortal danger evokes the right to self-defence. Why shouldn't the police?"
Because, as I've already pointed out, they just get their certainty to get away with most stuff.
They should be trained to de-escalate, they should be obliged to de-escalate first and foremost.
Yet they continuously show escalation and only escalation.
And their Training only focuses on seeing things they don't know as threats - and killing.
Yes, there are "killiology" classes in the quick and short police academies.

Too bad. The police in the U.S.A. seem to have prerogatives analogous to the prerogatives of poli ...
To shoot harmless animals for fun... how depraved can you get?

But then again, it's not just the cops that do such things. It's ordinary citizens. Sometimes children who do it.


In the USA you are 97 times more likely to be shot by JFenix or a drug dealing criminal than you are by a policeman.

Washington (CNN)One of Richard Nixon's top advisers and a key figure in the Watergate scandal said the war on drugs was created as a political tool to fight blacks and hippies, according to a 22-year-old interview recently published in Harper's Magazine.

"The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people," former Nixon domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman told Harper's writer Dan Baum for the April cover story published Tuesday.

"You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin. And then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities," Ehrlichman said. "We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."

  
Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.

The police should "be trained to deescalate..."?

Let me suggest to you and to JFenix that U.S. citizens ougt to be rained to be compatible with their police and with their neighbours and families. That would be the biggest contribution towards deescalating social tensions.

Of course they should.
Do you want to be stuck as hostage in a hostage scenario and hear the police negotiator brag to the hijackers that they have more firepower and challange them to prove they can kill hostages and escalate?
Oh, we kind of have that now in international politics.

If I understand you perfectly, you think the U.S. police should mend their ways (and why not, even I can agree to that!) whereas the kidnappers, murderers, robbers, rapists, shooters, burglars and so on can go on without undergoing any training designed to get them to behave themselves more civilly in the execution of their jobs?

So the police should be gentlemen and the criminals should be criminals?
