Well, the BART cop got 2 years. I figured that would happen. After all, the jury’s verdict indicates it was a mistake, after all. As I said in my original post on the subject, I never believed it was an all-out assassination. What is much more predictable (and much more disappointing) is that the Oakland folks are rioting already.
Assume for a minute (which I do not) that the average cop is racist. Assume for a minute (which I do not) that this cop meant to kill. If it is all a big racist plot (I also reject this concept handily) then why would huge groups of the “victim” group go out and reinforce the stereotype that they believe officers hold against them?
If the Black Riders and other groups want to show that Blacks are innocent victims of police brutality (which they are not) then why not have a peaceful demonstration to show that the (evil, to them) cops are wrong?
