It was a terrible accident that didn’t have to happen, many lives were ruined and it all could have been avoided if he just didn’t resist arrest. Comply, don’t die.

People of all races have and will continue to resist arrest. That’s not news. That’s a fact of humanity. Law enforcement are sworn to protect and to serve, not execute their own justice.
Law enforcement has a seriously large element that doesn’t want to follow that creed and exact their own “justice”. It is systemic.

And far too many in our country don’t want to confront that reality.

The 25 year veteran police officer Kim Potter, who allegedly “confused” her taser with her service weapon, has now been charged with Second Degree Manslaughter.

She should be charged let the courts figure it out that’s the way it is in America. Rioting and looting has nothing to do with anything other than it being an excuse. Most of those businesses being looted are owned by people like you and me and devastates them and their community. Anyone caught looting should face a mandatory 10 years in prison.
