I have never been to or driven through sugar creek, and we often hear about drugs there. What’s the deal about that place? 3,330 in population with 90% of it white. Sounds like a lot of meth then. White trash and meth cooking just like it’s neighbor to the south independence.

Man found guilty of manslaughter in his ex-girlfriend's death was sentenced Thursday to 54 years in prison. He also was convicted of child endangerment, armed criminal action and attempted armed criminal action. This was in Kansas City, MO.

Guess who was black and who wasn’t, I thought murder was a higher offense than manslaughter, this makes no sense whatsoever, but then again we’re talking about petersucker, most worthless proseciputor ever.

How come those sugar creek policemen are dressed like special forces soldiers when making a run of the mill arrest? My god our police are getting so militarized right before our eyes in our own time. A perpetual war society is eventually going to be changed into a garrison state. It is inevitable.

Twenty years and out in 12 is a long sentence for Jean Petersucker Baker. Black murderers usually way less.

She always always always recommends the sentences and it’s clear as the nose on your face she’s been handing out next to nothing for the koloreds while severely punishing anyone who’s not black.

@6:26, it's because the Police never know when they're going to run into some right wing "Rambo wanna be" who bought some cheap-assed M-16-looking knockoff so he could "protect his God-given Second Amendment Rights" while he cooks up his next batch of Meth.

It isn't "Police Militarization", it's that thing we used to call "Common Sense".
