The police officer fucked up, and now he's going to pay dearly for it. Police in the US are trained to respond to a threat of deadly force with deadly force. That's what he did. What he didn't do was announce that he was a police officer before entering her property. So she had reasonable cause to believe her safety was threatened and it was fine for her to have a firearm at the ready. So this guy will get convicted and the police will pay out the ass for this one.

I frankly find it intolerable for Europeans to be trying to trash America about racism given your own problems--and given the fact that slavery was set up in the United States by European empires, not by US revolutionaries. Racial issues are the same issue in the UK and throughout Europe.Do black criminals get harsher sentences for the same crimes?
Europeans, in their infinite wisdom, have decided it's a good idea to import third world populations into Europe. They now have the same problems as the United States. It's just that culturally, British police don't carry firearms. The United States is a heavily armed population, because we want our government to be shit scared of us. We prefer it that way.

No you don't. You thought it would be fun to try to rile up some Americans while ignoring the same problems in your country. Imperial ideology pushes the notion of equality in furtherance of a one-world government that is neither wanted nor needed by the world's population. The reality is much different. Racially diverse societies tend to have all sorts of race-based conflict. Post-apartheid South Africa didn't result in equanimity among races. Rather, it resulted in state-sanctioned property theft and oppression of the white minority. In each individual case, the imperialist offers up a host of "this case is different," "you're ignoring x, y, and z factors" and so forth. The fact is that diversity is not a strength.

The Proud Boys aren't particularly macho. Look at THEIR website, not some left wing "right wing terror watch" bullshit. http://proudboysusa.com/
They accept gays in the proud boys--not exactly a macho thing. Machismo is more of a Latino thing. Misogyny is more of a black thing. Anti-gay is a black thing. As noted in the video I posted, in the US, no other subculture is allowed to sing songs about murdering other people, except blacks and Hispanics. It's socially unacceptable. Whereas, almost the opposite is the case for blacks. Sexist language is unacceptable for white men. For example, investment guru Ken Fisher just lost $600M in funding from the state of Michigan for making sexist remarks at a private investment conference. This does not happen to black people.

We need to end "punishment for addiction" as a political matter. However, the problem of most crime arising out of drugs and alcohol still must be addressed as a criminal issue. Ultimately, that means we cannot give in to the hedonists unless we want to see homelessness, feral humans and crime increase--and we're at a saturation point in the United States.

Lots of them do have 4 year degrees. My friend's daughter, who was recently shot and killed as a Sacramento police officer, had a four year degree. It's more common than you think. However, there are a lot of people who return from military service who have spent their young adult lives kicking down doors in house-to-house searches and who use deadly force at the drop of a hat becoming police officers. So they conflate their combat training with police training, and they are not the same role even though police are paramilitary.
Presvias wrote:What other reforms would you make?
Heavily taxing the broadcast of violent media, and the consumption of alcohol and recreational drugs. The culture of violence should be paying the taxes necessary to police and incarcerate it. The culture of alcohol and drugs should bear the cost of treating addiction.
