“I’ve been contemplating it and here’s what I know – we better do something because at the end of the day it can’t keep happening. Desperate communities do desperate things. We’re going to have to do something,” Jada said.

    Desperate communities do desperate things, sounds like she’s justifying the killing of 5 policemen.

  • Anna

    What kind of answer is that? So you’re not condoning NOT killing cops?

  • Dimme

    Do notice they only get worked if a gang member is killed by a cop. Irrespective of the cops race apparently since the MN cop was Asian. It’s almost as if it’s about racial agitation and political power and not about “black lives”

    On Tuesday, July 5, cops shot a Blood named Alton Sterling. The next day, police shot Crip Philando Castile. Both were armed.

    Since Obama Preisdency 3500 blacks have been murdered in Chicago, not a peep from Obama, the media, celebrities. Those lives don’t matter.

    Black lives matter, but so do the facts.

    she made this comments before the shootings by the way.

    Here is a suggestion for ALL of those who continually bash the police and immediately scream murder when a cop shoots a black person. YOU put on the uniform and you take to the streets. Then let’s put you in these situations and see how you react when you have mere seconds to determine if there is a threat to your life and how to deal with it. The man in Baton Rouge – he has a pocket pistol on his person. Are these people aware that you can fire a pocket pistol while it is in your pocket as long as you can get your hang on the trigger? You don’t even need to have your hand in your pocket. He was resisting arrest and it is obvious that something occurred. As for the MN shooting. The officer was informed that the man had a gun…and yet it appears that he did not follow police direction and was reaching in his pocket. Again, split second decision. So, unless these folks walk the walk…the can just stfu.

    Perhaps if those “desperate communities” realized that when a police officer gives you an order, you obey it instead of refusing to do so. MANY of the recent cops killing blacks shootings had that very scenario. Not all, but MANY. Yet SO many conveniently ignore that fact and blame everything on the police. Many are still outraged about the Michael Brown shooting even though ALL of the evidence proved Officer Wilson was justified in the shooting and Michael Brown refused to obey Wilson’s command to stop and not move. Not only did Brown refuse to halt, he attacked the officer and tried to get into his car. It was also proven that he did NOT have his hands in the air to surrender. Yet everyone did the “Hands up, dont’ shoot’ chant for Brown anyway. For no reason. Because his hands were never up.

    Seems to me that its time to assign black cops to black neighborhoods and white cops to white neighborhoods. How sad is that? But if that’s what needs to be done then lets do it.

  • Stef24

    I wish these people ripping the police would grasp the fact that when a cop tells you to do something, you obey. That’s not the case in all of the recent shootings but it has happened MANY times making the officer justified in his shooting. Did you see the new video and article about the GF in the MI shooting. Check this out. She’s a piece of work and NOT at all credible. http://dennismichaellynch.com/credibility-zero-girlfriend-who-filmed-castile-shooting-on-facebook-live/

    Why is it always about race with her? First the Oscars (and no Will did not deserve a nomination) and now this.

    shut up

  • M. Usher

    I’ve said it before
    Don’t break the law
    Be respectful to the cops
    Don’t fight
    Don’t run

    Everytime I’ve done this and never had a problem, yes some can be aholes but I was never threatned.
    Plus I’ve been pulled over for crappy reasons to, light bulb out on license plate, headlamp supposed ly out but wasn’t, entering a passing lane to early etc .

    Almost all cups are good it’s the very small few.
    And to finish if a cop shoots a bad white guy we as a race don’t care, I wish blacks felt the same with all the black on black violence which is truly the problem in their community

  • Martel

    The cop was Hispanic. The woman in the car said he was Chinese I beleive. She was wrong about that and probably many other things.

  • 55vineyard

    No, I will not.

  • suzybel

    Well I guess If Jada Pinkett Smith said it, it must be so.
