I think, John Barrow, that you do not fully understand the culture of policing in the United States that makes such murders common events. The justice system as well, has its own culture and thus many a murderer has not been indicted or held accountable for their crimes. You have only to look at our supreme court and Republican would be presidential candidates from current and past election cycles, to see that being a person of color a justice seeker does not make. Police adjust to the culture on which they are dependent for survival. There will always be good people striving for what is right and just but to use an old cliche, you cannot tell a book by its cover.
