He tweeted a picture.

Looks like the cop has the weapon in his hand, but hardly on Bennett's head. Just saying...

Supposedly there were shots fired in the area.

I have no problem with the officer having drawn his weapon.

There is no proof a gun was put to Bennett's head.

Are we really going to question if an officer should pull his weapon in a potetjnally dangerous situation?

I find the fact so many armchair experts want to criticize people dealing with heated and dangerous situations ridiculous.

What should we re-hash?

On this forum at least we've never pretended this is not an issue and we have had many serious adult conversations about it.

I'm glad someone on the other side is at least admitting that this IS an issue.

What is the "issue?" Define it for me.

What is the issue though... Is it that cops as a whole are poorly trained or "they are out to get people of color"

Cause I can agree with oyu on issue #1, #2 not so much.

The issue is that black people are more likely to be stopped by police.

They are more likely to be arrested by police.

They are more likely to be found guilty.

They are more likely to be incarcerated.

Those are the facts. If you don't believe me, look it up. Countless studies have been made about this.

So if you aren't going to accept the facts then there is no need for a discussion.

However, if you want to discuss why then I'm all ears.
