    Man, looks like I can't count either in addition to my sub par reading comprehension. Even in scouring over the additional two sentences I failed to count in my initial comment, still no mention of race.

    Either way, bonehead comments like the ones posted here only cause more friction and solve nothing.

    Where is the race of the victim mentioned in the three sentence article? I'll be the first to admit that, on occasion, my reading comprehension lets me down, but I'm pretty sure it's not there

    Actually all lives matter, regardless of why shot by. But surely you can see it's a lot worse when the killer is someone sworn to "protect and serve" and who will almost certainly not be held accountable for their crime ?

    So BLM only if shot by police. Interesting.
    More blacks have been killed in Chicago, during the Obama administration, than in the Iraq/Afghan war.

    Two totally opposite situations Jeff. This was ghetto on ghetto crime. Which is expected. In the other case people are perceiving that people in positions of authority are abusing their power. So in their frustrations over perceived injustices they riot. Perhaps Mrs. Clinton can visit Charlotte as she is invested in the Black Lives Matter movement.
