Black people are upset at cops why? Because of cops pulling people over for "Driving while black"? Or a stop and frisk beef when they aren't breaking any laws? Ok I can understand THAT...but resisting arrest, grabbing for an officer's gun, and pointing a firearm at an officer WILL GET YOU KILLED...I'm sorry that's regardless of race/gender/sexual orientation.
Some folks have been quick to point out that James Holmes(Dark Knight theater shooter) and Jared Loughner were taken into custody alive.....THOSE DUDES WERE WHITE AND THEY WEREN'T SHOT AND KILLED! Well John Lee Malvo (Beltway sniper) and Colin Fergusson (Long Island Railroad Shooter) were black and were taken into custody alive as well so that's a moot point at best.
