The difference, of course, being that that was a case of a criminal doing a despicable thing while here it was a person trained and employed specifically to keep the public safe doing something heinous.

Also, the boy didn't die which certainly makes a difference.

More than that, that dude was mentally disturbed, and in and out of institutions, including prison, of course.

The Police exist to enforce the laws of the country, not to 'keep you safe' specifically. Protect and serve, protect citizens  from lawbreakers and serve those who need help from said lawbreakers.

Didn't Floyd commit a crime prior to this interaction? I thought he attempted to use counterfeit money in a store owned by an actual minority. He was also walking perfectly fine before resisting arrest.

None of this excuses the actions of said police officers or his murder.

In another world, he doesn't commit a crime, he doesn't encounter the police, he doesn't die.

Yes, but the enforcement of those laws generally do a fair job of keeping people safe -- barring the disgusting exceptions that people are currently protesting against. Hence the "To serve and protect" motto of USAian police.

I don't really see the point in the "other world" hypothetical, in another world nobody commits crime and we don't need police and all that. Unfortunately I can't see that world existing anytime soon, so since we do need police I'd prefer ones that don't kneel on cuffed people's necks. Part of protect and serve is protecting the basic rights of everyone, including criminals.

Taught my first few classes last week, they were predictably disasters (shout-out to my lovely co-teacher for sitting in the back on her computer and leaving the room for a long period in the middle of the lesson). After the last lesson heard her pretty blatantly shit-talking me behind my back (I can't understand Korean, but I can recognize my name and a condescending tone of voice).

Now they've called somebody in to audit me. Heavily considering just tanking and giving them an excuse to fire me so I can go back home, but then again I'm from the states so "home" isn't looking too good right now. Sucks that I'll be part of the first X months turnover rate, maybe things would've been different if it weren't for virus stuff and whatnot, who knows.

Northstar, it's irrelevant. All white on black crime is a result of racism and all black on black/white crime is a result of poverty, caused by the systemic oppression of black people. So  actually, all crime is the fault of white people. It's much  easier to look at it that way, profess your guilt/privilege about it at every opportunity and live your life without any hassle.

Choosing to live your life without hassle is white privilege though, so can we do that?

Considering that POC (and especially black people) are far more likely to be wrongfully accused and convicted (about 700% for murder, approximately 350% for sexual assault, and about 1200% for drug possession), maybe higher acquittal rates are a good thing?
(source: http://www.law.umich.edu/special/exoneration/Documents/Race_and_Wrongful_Convictions.pdf)

Also, while the article is from 2013, the data it quotes is from 1992, which makes it older than many of the people posting here.
