    There’s a few. The third one is good, where the woman threatens to smack around the occupants of a car who were passing out bricks to black people. She gives them hell.

    Black FBI agent arrested by white police officers, see what happens at the end.

    FAKE ! Not an FBI agent.

    This quote, while not proof itself, should give one pause.

    American carnage

    The list of victims has swiftly grown since George Floyd died in police custody just eight days ago.


    The big picture: Protests against police brutality have turned into a showcase of police brutality, with tear gas and rubber bullets deployed against crowds. The police have the arsenals at their disposal, but we're also seeing law enforcement officers becoming targets.


    The AP reports the wounded toll is in the dozens from vehicles plowing into crowds, police officers suffering head injuries and broken bones, and protesters ending up in emergency rooms.


    Police officers have also been shot in St. Louis and Las Vegas, CNN reports.


    Among those killed across the U.S. since Floyd's death:


    David McAtee, 53, shot by law enforcement in Louisville, Kentucky. None of the officers had body cameras activated at the time. Police claimed on Tuesday that it appears McAtee fired first, citing new surveillance video footage.


    David Patrick Underwood, 53, shot while on duty as law enforcement in Oakland, California. The FBI hasn't announced a motive in his death.


    Chris Beaty, 38, shot in Indianapolis, Indiana. Police haven't confirmed whether it was related to the protests.


    Calvin L. Horton Jr., 43, shot outside a pawn shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The owner was booked but has yet to be charged.


    James Scurlock, 22, shot by a bar owner after an altercation in Omaha, Nebraska. Local authorities won't press charges, saying it was self-defense.


    Italia Kelly, 22, shot when trying to get into a friend's car while leaving a protest in Davenport, Iowa.



    The bottom line: Untold others have injuries ranging from bruises to potential coronavirus exposure to the aftereffects of tear gas.

    Fully debunked here...

    Various posts on social media concluded the man was secretly an FBI agent. However, the Rochester (MN) Police Department confirmed to Reuters via email that, “Contrary to social media rumors, the individual was not a Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) agent.” The department said: “During the brief detention, identification was located showing he was not the individual the officers knew had a warrant. The individual was immediately released.“ Rochester Police also confirmed that the incident took place on June 1, 2019. A press release from the RPD on the exchange is visible here .

    Imagine this collective uproar and protests when the U.S. engages in another one of it's unnecessary foreign interventions - expanding the empire.

    Tragically, these things would never come about.
    Priorities.


    American tend to miss the big picture or any picture, for that matter.

    Yawn... Quite boring topic - unlike currently on all TV stations....

    And not so outrageous here as the plight of Uighurs, Tibetans, HK, you name it...

    Regarding the 'FBI' agent.
    As soon as they saw his ID they realised they'd fucked up so he was obviously someone in authority. Also he talked about writing a report so maybe a cop. Either way same result.

    A few comments concerning this thread: 1) although the underlying premise is cop bias against minorities, cops are bias against any civilian, black, brown, red, yellow and white - bias against all colors less blue. 2) there are many cops who are good and go out of their way to police their brothers in uniform, holding them to a higher standard - the uniform is judged and more harshly judged by those in uniform, 3) we cannot stereotype the uniform as biased against minorities, the police deserve the same non-prejudicial treatment that the minorities deserve.

    Now that being said, how do you fix the problem:
    a) legislation allowing civil suits against the cops ain't going to do squat, the PBA and FOP will demand states and municipalities procure insurance to protect the BIB against any judgement. So, meaningless legislation will be passed so the politicians can say "See we did our job".
    b) Why the F*ck can the police turn off their body cams. Why? What is wrong with this picture? Their is no good cop out there that will turn off their body cam. It is a protective device that can only help them. I cannot think of a situation that would warrant or justify a police officer shutting off their body cam. Back to the Question - Why can they turn them off? Why aren't they issued body cams that are always on? That cannot be turned off? Then, in the event of a situation without no film footage we would know where the guilt lies.
    c) We have IAD to police the police. How does a "bad cop" such as this slip through the cracks? Do not cops go through a psych analysis to catch this type of behavior prone individual before an incident such as this occurs? Now, along the lines of the FBI agent incident, why is their not a "bait car" team out their checking up on, and looking for, bad cops? If such a team, there would have to be quite a few, roamed the inner cities, I figure rogue cops would think twice, although maybe not.

    Now, I have witnessed bad cop on non-minority interactions - the color of skin or ethnicity may, in fact, cause predisposition in how a cop views a situation. But, I do believe that the majority of cops are good or reasonable. A case of a few bad apples. But, what is the solution?, and, how do you go about cleaning up the few bad apples?

    The question isn't does a problem exist, The Question Is "How Do You Fix The Problem?"

    I looked at the date of the video and thought it was new. It's still relevant though because it's about police harrassment of blacks, regardless of whether or not they are FBI agents.

    Clearly recruitment and monitoring needs to be more rigorous.

    I'll bet the (non-racist) colleagues of that cop who triggered this whole situation reacted with something like "What a surprise!" and rolling their eyes.

    The answers are not that complicated, so one has to question the will.

    Beyond that...few people like being lectured by foreigners. Take Piers Morgan.

    Pleeeease!

    It is very relevant and a potential step in making some progress about this issue - as in a post above - a "bait car" type reverse string scenario may provide good results in making the bad or questionable cop think twice.

    Boring yet you constantly post on it . . . what does that make you? As for Uighurs, Tibetans etc... start a thread, many already have or are you too thick or hypocritical to acknowledge that again?
    You can continue filling them with your China and Russia-apologist crap

    Yes, and the boys in blue are no exception. Yet they seem to hold a very negative view towards their fellow boys in blue who get caught, and a very negative view concerning IAD who they believe overstep their bounds are are to by-the-book and provide no flexibility. As far as IAD is concerned they, the BIB will hedge their answers to IAD investigations. There is a lot of protect the badge and fellow officers among the BIB.

    Trayvon Martin wasn't shot by a cop. He was shot by some curtain-twitching fat wanker with a tiny penis and the obligatory compensatory gun, who started a fight he lost and decided to shoot instead.

    It's not just the police, it's the whole judicial system.

    The disproportionate percentage of blacks in jail may to an extent be a result of them being in a significantly poorer social demographic.

    But Blacks in US courts generally receive significantly worse sentences for the same offence than whites, and that is down to the system.

    The whole justice system is systemically racist.

    If you are black, you are more likely to be stopped by the police, more likely to be searched by the police, more likely to be arrested by the police, more likely to be charged by prosecuters, and will likely receive a longer sentence than white people.

    Oh, and it's a shitload more likely that the cops will kill you.

    That.

    And it extends to society as a whole also.

    It’s not just limited to some arbitrary focus and grounds for discussion or what someone who isn’t impacted by it sees.
