  • To a fallen fellow US Marine who was brutally killed for racist reasons…. I pause.
    The first thing that sticks out to me are the inconsistencies. Most of these devices record everything in the room; as they didn’t before. But the ones we are seeing on tv now, assume in some cases, you can’t call for help, you can’t push a button…and just send help automatically. Good for them.
    What I see here is the commanding officer of this group, giving the orders to his subordinates…and it’s understood that they follow, or else….
    Now, I don’t have one of these LifeAids…..yet. However, I’m assuming that they give the race, age, vitals, etc. of the person who owns the bracelet….else, how would the cop know that the man inside is black to call him a fkn nigger A black cop is decidedly NOT going to do that. Bet. That’s not in their character. It’s unprofessional. Maybe in the streets; at their local hangouts, but NOT in public, with a team of other cops. White Plains, NY is decidedly a white, republican area too.

  • If this case goes to a grand jury…it needs to be televised.  I pray for that!

  • This case needs to be televised.  Im so upset.  Makes me feel hatred towards police.  Scary feeling.
