It's been more than half a century since the Integration and Racial Equality battles of the 1950-1960's and here we are - back in the middle of those same wars.

There's less humans of conscience now. Less compassion. Less understanding.

Only the weapons are more plentiful.

I am very pleased with this court decision. Central Park Karen was fired for what she did and was sued. She lost the case. Attempted the right wing defense of racism by accusing others.

Aside from this piece of news, the woman is keeping a low profile. I'm happy she lost the lawsuit, too.

Watering someone's lawn is sure jerklike behavior. You do realize this thread is riddled with white people calling the cops on black people for no reason.

You should avail yourself of the data and see what people like me deal with
Why would a racist care about data?

I grew up in a very very white suburban New Jersey town. There was like a 10% Asian population. My high school over a thousand kids had like two or three black kids.

My friend who I met after high school was this like juvenile delinquent terror. Tons of shoplifting, robbing houses, breaking into houses to rob them. Anyways he got off with nothing as a minor. Skinny Jewish kid from The burbs.

He was in court a lot though. Getting lots of slaps on the wrists. Well he would watch and see all the minorities getting arrested for shoplifting in minor things being sent off the jail and the white people mostly getting much less penalties.

When we met after high school we became like the huge potheads of the town. Eventually we did get arrested for weed but we all got a conditional discharge. Not if we were black though.

There are elements are racism in many of these cases, especially the incidents that made headlines nationally.

Normally, when White cops show up on a disorderly person call, patience is rarely evident. The individual causing a problem is likely suffering a mental health crisis and is usually dealt with violently.

One summer night, Misty Castillo stepped out of her house in Salem, Oregon, called 911 and asked for the police, saying her son was mentally ill, was assaulting her and her husband and had a knife.

(From a story on PBS.org and the link is provided.)


“He’s drunk and he’s high and he’s mentally ill,” Castillo told the emergency dispatcher, emphasizing again her son’s mental condition. Less than five minutes later, a police officer burst into the house and shot Arcadio Castillo III dead as he stood, his mother said later, “frozen like a deer in headlights.”

“He didn’t try to calm him down. He just came in and immediately shot my son,” Castillo said.

Police simply have no clue how to deal with a mentally disturbed individual. They normally end up shooting them.

Elijah McCain was an unarmed 23-year old Black man who was killed after cops and paramedics in Aurora, Colo., forcibly restrained him and he was injected with ketamine.

"I believe this tragic fatality is most likely the result of ketamine toxicity," an amended coroner’s report said, adding McClain received a higher dosage of the sedative than he should have. "Simply put, this dosage of ketamine was too much for this individual and it resulted in an overdose."

This happens all across the U.S. and it’s tragic, vile and often unnecessary. The exact figures of these violent police encounters are not known because they are not compiled.

But that was not the case with the daughter of a Tulsa, Okla., district attorney. Despite allegedly stabbing her father and forcing responding cops to wrestle with her, she survived the encounter and was merely handcuffed.

Jennifer Kunzweiler, 30, remained in the hospital under police guard on Sept. 28, 2022, a day after she was arrested for stabbing her father, Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler, Tulsa Police Capt. Richard Meulenberg said

In interviews, her dad, quickly admitted police were dealing with a mentally ill person. When his daughter is released, she will be booked on a single count of domestic violence with use of a dangerous weapon, according to Tulsa Police Capt. Richard Meulenberg said.

But she’s alive because cops knew better than to shoot this woman. Hope she gets the help she needs. Because so many others never do.
