Police killings are the lowest they have been in the entirety of American history.

Looks like prayer didn't work.

Listening to Dana and Park's now. People are giving it to them and the local media for not giving an accurate distraction of the perp. Good for the callers. The media deserves this today. But hey people still think Mike Brown had his hands up and said don't shoot.

what is an accurate distraction?

Media is trying to lump this in as a race killing rather than a line of work injury killing. There's a difference and they're trying to portray it as something it's not. Race baiting starting 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...

When the perp is a black, illegal alien or muslim the media is dragged kicking and screaming to describe anything about him. Oh but if it's a white guy you know his life story including what he had for lunch within two hours.

You missed 5:21's comment.

Cop killings are at an historic low.

accurate distraction .....If you think I was a moron with classified materials at the State Department just wait until I'm President. I'll stop at nothing to show how dumb I can be when the heat is on.

The shooter is black, everyone knows that including the media. They just don't want to tell you. They'll show a picture of him this time next week.

are media reporting objective truth?

if not, a democracy cannot work.

Another gentle giant forced to off a police officer because racist America has pushed his poor ass to a point that no human being can bear. Another poor bastard killer forced into victimanship and surely to become a martyr for the New Black Panther movement. Lets hope his rat kinfolk ran out and got the EBT card out of his wallet before the police hauled his ass off to the white slave master's prison.

Lets hope that no one buys into this shit and this motherfucker gets the most painful, cruel, hell matching, mix of chemicals on earth at his state sanctioned execution.

5:37 and 5:21 - where are you getting your data that shows cop killings at "an historic low"? According the National Law Enforcement Officers website, which lists cops killed by year for over 200 years, we aren't even close to historic lows.

6:07 speaks for all police officers?

5:53 BBC

Cop killings have been going down while their numbers are going up.

@5:53 directs us to some real data and that comment is appreciated. Sorry, police killings are not "at an all time low." Far from it.

Here's some info that I think might add a fact check to this discussion:

Number of US police officers killed by guns surges by 72 percent compared to July 2015

More info here:

As always, just want to share some of the links and stories that I find interesting. Peace.

Time to bring abortion into the story. Take one look at a violent crimes chart from the early 90's and you can see the effects of legalized abortion beginning in 1973. Almost all perps nowadays have two things in common; they are poor and grew up without their fathers around. White meth-heads, black low-lifes, or Hispanic gang-bangers, they all have this in common. Use birth control people and choose wisely if you have an unplanned pregnancy.
