House Democrats demand probes of police killings of black Americans

The House Judiciary Committee has asked the DOJ to investigate systemic police misconduct following a spate of police killings of African Americans. The killings of George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN and Breonna Taylor in her Louisville, KY apartment raise questions as to whether police were engaged in a ’pattern or practice of unconstitutional conduct’, Jerrold Nadler wrote to AG William Barr.

How about just police killings. There are about 1500 a year and only 250ish are blacks.

They're conveniently ignoring that Republicans, including Trump, are also asking for a probe. Why pretend this is a partisan issue when it's not the case?

Nobody kills more blacks than other blacks. Less blacks are killed each year by cops than whites. Surely it's more important to talk about 4%/55%?

The Dems need the institutional use of force to be primarily racial in order to keep Americans divided. The excessive use of force is a product of living in a police state. The government cannot reeducate people to feel different and groups of people but they can stop responding with force.

The "right" want to pivot to social media, the "left" want to pivot to social injustice; both are legitimate issues that cross party lines, both are distractions from a more prevalent issue. As powerful as our government is, we are only people. Etc etc

How many people of colour have to be murdered before things change if it was a white person things would change so fast your head would spin. 2 men of colour have been murdered in the last year by police. But if it was a cop all shit would break loose. Blue lives matter BS.

I’m just going to keep saying it. Minnesota is a DEMOCRATIC STATE. Democratic governor. Minneapolis has a democratic mayor. Why are democrats looking around with a stupefied expression as if they can’t understand what happened? This is YOUR house, people. Clean it up.

Barr won't do this, systemic oppression needs to be maintained in order to consolidate power.
