"in two days we've seen four African-American Latino men killed by the police. So that would actually make it every 12 hours if we were to add in Latino, Latina, and Latinx folks that are also being killed by the police...peace.

Once upon a time, police had personal contact with people on their beats. Now they are just uniforms in their squad cars, faceless bullies to keep us afraid and in line. What happened to Protect and Serve? We need that old-fashioned policing back.

Don't fall prey to the media hype. Their boss is the 1% of elitist destroyers who control government, media and other places of power. That faction wants to separate the masses quickly. It is working. If they succeed, most of us will become overly intolerant of each other's differences. We'll also become very fearful and on the defensive in re law enforcement. Perfect.

Perfect recipe to separate---as in divide and conquer the masses. If we're incited to violence among ourselves, then we won't unite. If we do not unite, we won't revolt to remove the 1%, our corruptors, from government. If we do revolt, peacefully or not, for any reason--that will be used as an excuse to imprison, beat or murder us in large numbers. You must be aware of their basic motive.

Their basic motive is this. In 1997, they announced at a UN General Assembly meeting that by 2025 to 2050, they would require that at least 95% of Earth's population to be removed, or Earth would not survive. As they are the self-designated "Chosen Few", they have escalated that "cleansing" due to Earth's peaking sooner than previously estimated. The 1% need the space you are in and what's left of Earth's resources---on top of that which they've already stored.

So, the recent events, which too conveniently involve most of the masses differences with each other--are part of a design to incite most of us to violence. At the same time, it has also very conveniently created a smoke screen and diversion over some very hot political and environmental issues. Remember, that the media are part of the 1%'s "massive marionette machinery" designed to manipulate the masses. Who knows how much of the recent events were ordered--and/or sensationalized. It is working.

The masses are abuzz--taking various sides--frightened--angry--deciding what action to take, as no action is creating a world that's unlivable. So, the 1% are creating your options for you--as to which side to choose. You can choose a blend, but they're steering you to be very protective of some, while urging you to harm or even kill your chosen "enemies". So, here's just some of the list you can choose to hate or love---"Blacks", "Latinos", "Bad cops"---(and that means most cops, as you can't take time to differentiate). "LGBTs", "Hippies", "Commie Pinko Progressives", "Leftists", "Extreme Rightwingnuts", "Doves", "Hawks", "Trump White Supremist supporters", "Bernie's Brigade", "Green Party Pipedreamers", "All Activists"--(be it Civil, Women's rights, Environmental, Human Rights, Peace etc).. "All Protestors", "Revolutionaries", "Muslims, Christians and any and all specific religions, cults, etc.". Well--there's plenty more to chose from.

A very good choice, as they are the root of all separatism and destruction and death on Earth--the true enemy is the 1%. If the entire planet's "We The People" joined in solidarity and removed that evil corruption from government and other places of power, that would be the end of most of Earth's ongoing devastation and the roiling-up of the masses to hate each other for their differences. The root excuse of war and light tangles. The serpent in the garden--without the constant whispering to incite evil action, there would be more peace. More unification. With the uniting, the masses would pour their energies and time into saving the planet, healing it and themselves after so many centuries of oppression, suppression and evil.

Could the entire present situation this planet is in be as simply described as our experience being the end times of The Battle Of Armageddon? I'm not a religious fanatic, I am spiritual and have always allowed my inner awareness to be my guide. I see this as the end of a very long battle between good and evil. So, most of us chose sides as children. Follow your intuition and remember that your choice creates the future.

What happened to the days of the local "Bobby" and engaging with the community, as opposed to being sent in to an area like riot squad. . .?

Noted. Thanks, Cheryl.

As was stated in the article, it seems like open season on people of color. This is horrible and shocking. I don't even want to ask how much more divided our country can get.
The US didn't really "heal" after the Bush years. People in authority got away with torture and rendition. The government collects ALL of our metadata and stores it in the Super Fusion center in UT. We are still fighting wars in 2 countries and have even added more. Our local law enforcement has been 'militarized' and trained to shoot to kill. Obama was supposed to turn this around.....he's had nearly 8 years.

Excellent comments by Janice and Lois.

"CONWAY:......what I'm curious about--every time I hear about one of these shootings, I see that the federal government comes in, and they say they're going to investigate. That pretty much pacifies the community. Does anything result from the federal government investigation? Because time and time again I hear, okay, we're going to look into this. We're going to investigate it. What's happening there on that level, even if the local municipalities aren't doing their job? The federal government is not, either?"

"CLEMENTE: Yeah, I don't think there's been an officer convicted since the officers were convicted in the Rodney King case after the first trial, where they were found not guilty and where the feds came in. And that was what, 1993? I don't remember any cops since then that the federal Justice Department has successfully indicted and prosecuted all the way to its conclusion."

Yes, it's been a pattern or should I say technique used by cities and towns. Publicly call in the Feds fast to investigate and quell any rioting backlash. This is their last card, there's nothing left in the PR box. When this "Fed Tech" becomes glaring obvious from overuse, than things may spiral down very quickly.

"There needs to be a federal database that keeps track of all police killings."

Yes, and it needs to begin 2017, there should have been one a hundred years ago.

"We've got to publicly educate people, we have to raise consciousness, and we have to keep organizing."

Yes, the irrational fear of the black race has to come to light, be spoken about on TV, in movies, in our families. For example, the white pundits on cable news shows discussing the topic could be asked point blank if they have ever feared the black race as a whole. If so, where did that fear come from? Lay it out in the open.

Hi Lois Jordan,
The problem with Obama is our expectation. He can't change what he is part of. He was never the President of peace. He said that he would end certain wars but he never said that he wouldn't start new ones. His drones are dropping bombs in 6 or 7 African countries which have never threatened the United States. Our problems in America are American created not ISIS. Between the lies of the GOP and President Obama's foriegn policies, foolish Americans can't see that fear, racism, greed and self hate are destroying this country.
Perhaps one day we'll learn before it's too late.
Hi Randy,
The fear came from the slave days when white plantation owners feared their black slaves. There were numerous slave revolts which American history doesn't talk about. In these revolts many whites lost their lives and/or their property. The KKK was hired as a form of police to track down runaway slaves and bring them back to the plantation. Once the emancipation happened, whites feared blacks more because they believed that their ex-slaves would retaliate against them. They also hated the ex-slaves for joining the Northern armies against the south and winning the war. Revenge against Blacks for winning their freedom by destroying the South's economic stability is why many whites hate and fear Black people today. The funny thing about this situation is that White immigrants who have adopted the hatred of black people have no idea why. They don't know the history which they shared no part in...peace

Terrible and beyond sad. I don't want this to continue . . . . . . .. . . . . . I will do my best to be kind and involved in my community. I want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

Noted. I hope this stops soon. All men (and women) are created equal and should be treated as such.
