Clear concise and exact.
What the Pats gave up in leadership and the irony of his replacement.

Face it, the media promotes the violence.
I have seen him on Fox News.

There is no excuse for rioting in your own neighborhood but something has to be done but there is no good solution. I have mixed kids and I know that racism is a huge problem. Before I thought the race card was an excuse but now I see that it is very real.
I'm sorry, but this kind of post is exactly what we don't need. This is the attitude problem we have in America. The race card IS an excuse. Racism exists, but not near to the degree it's blown up to be by the media and the suckers who fall for it. And what needs to be understood, more importantly, is that racism goes both ways.

Yes, sometimes cops go to far, but it's not a common thing. There are countless thousands of police in this country and you hear a handful of bad stories come out every year. The news reports the bad. It should be called the bad news.

I wonder how many black officers have committed violent acts against civilians. You want to look that up? And in the case of what's going on in Baltimore, the guy who got shot was a criminal. He had a long rap sheet from everything I've heard. I don't know what exactly transpired to lead to his death, but I'd say there's more than a good chance he brought it on himself. If it were a white guy with the same criminal record, would you have applauded the police? I'm not saying what I think you would have done, I am merely asking the question.

People don't pay attention to what goes on until somebody dies and then they think it's racist. I happen to think it's pretty hypocritical for people to cry about race when a whole community decides to riot and spew hatred over something they have no facts on, not to mention the looting. You gonna blame the cops for those people too? These idiots are why we have to have law enforcement. Look how people react when they are left to themselves. No dignity, no morals, just a bunch of cry-babies looking for a reason to get out of the house and make fools of themselves.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

But once again it is micro management of the issue at hand. just what Washington wants
Take religious values out of society and fathers out of homes and what do you get ...... America 2015. The educational system and media support this by keeping the masses uneducated and ill informed.

A lot of the people that are rioting are using that excuse just to get free sh#$, but when someone is already handcuffed and are yelling they cant breath or when they are unarmed and are running and get shot eight times in the back, that is just cowards with badges who are worse then the people they are arresting. I know not all cops are like that but just because you have a criminal record doesn't mean your not a human being. If a cop sees a white man in a BMW and a black person with flashy rims, who is getting pulled over 10 out of 10 times?

It seems like the cell phone cameras are now the equalizer. In the past a lot of these incidents would be swept under the carpet. The Government is watching us everyday on camera now we are watching them.
