For whatever reason, John McClane is afraid to post here, so he's posting comments to me, instead. I find this inappropriate.




Sometimes people want to engage in a short private discussion rather than invite public argument. Plenty of legitimate uses for it, at least. Or they want to add a comment but otherwise let the argument die out, which I think is a very constructive way of doing things, rather than escalating. It's nice when people can let things go, and this allows them to do so without just going silent/while still clarifying a point.

I think you might want to talk to them directly before posting private communication, regardless.

What is inappropriate is you publicly posting a private comment, (unless the person who sent it gave you permission to do so).

If you don't want John McClane sending you comments tell him so, don't try to publicly shame him into stopping.

I need to leave this thread before more white people claim they know how to solve the issue, if this even is race related or praise the horrible acts from corrupt cops even further.

Just step away and shut up.

I think only one person said anything that sounded like praise for the cop involved in the killing. All the rest of the post (that I've read) condemned the cop.



I prefer to discuss these things in thread so others can weigh in, but John McClane and I often talk privately about these types of issues when they pop up. The good thing about that is I think it's easier for us to stay cordial and remain friends even when we have very differing opinions.

See I think this is part of the problem, but of course it's not malicious on your part. White or black it shouldn't matter we are all in it together. I don't know how to solve it but I do know the world will be a better place when we don't hear what the skin color of the people involved is.

The desire to be equal is good, but the reality is the total opposite.

Yeah, it seems like he's got issues of his own.

Do you think it is now socially acceptable to be racist towards whites?

Obviously not. But please dont turn this into a whites can be racially discriminated against too arguement.



It seems that many people don't know who Daniel Shaver is. He was a 26yo married father of 2 little girls and a pest control specialist from Texas. He was away for business in Arizona, and for work he used a pellet gun to get birds who would be causing a nuisance high up in the air inside large buildings. At his hotel he met a man and a woman, and they enjoyed a few drinks in his room. One of them asked him what was in the case, a musical instrument? No it's a pellet gun and he showed it to them. A couple in a hot tub down below saw him through the window and called the police reporting a man with a gun.

He walked out of his hotel room and then this happened-



The cop did not get convicted, and instead was treated for trauma and received his full pension. If Shaver just happened to be black, there would be screams of racial injustice and rioting and looting. There is no doubt about that. Yet with this, there is no outrage. There's more wrong going on than many people want to admit.

The reason you're not seeing it is because it is now very socially acceptable. Just 1 quick example; Antonio Brown was released from the Raiders after a few issues including calling his general manager "a cracker". A couple days later he was signed by the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. It's as if he was rewarded for his behavior.

I've seen that video. It's disgusting.


You cannot say this is the same, you cannot say there would be without a doubt rioting. We dont know. George Floyd died over $20, not reports of a gun.


I want to reiterate, that video is disgusting and that officer should be in prison.

The fact you are equating the two is disgusting. I'm out.
