    It’s funny. At least he knows the need for police.

    The best thing he has ever done was ‘How not to get arrested’. I disagree with his premise, all black men killed by the police are innocent. I’m sure more that a paltry number were actually villains.

    I appreciated his line about being a cop is hard, I don’t think that we pay police enough, and you get what you pay for. So much truth in those words right there.

    The only thing that should matter is what the person did immediately leading up to their death. The police don’t get to deliver a death sentence without a trial.

    The issue is lumping all these cases together. Trayvon, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, George Floyd are all not the same and they shouldn’t be treated so. Some of these were justified killings. Each case is different and should be separated out.

    Yes there are many more good apples than bad in our force. Just like in our social circles, neighborhoods, etc.
