OMG What is wrong with these kids? It goes on and on. Will there be riots about this one? I doubt it.

Julio, there will not be riots because a white Police Officer was not involved. The hoodlums don’t care if blacks kill blacks or Hispanics kill Hispanics. But it is unreasonable for a white cop to kill a person of color because he is committing a crime.
