#Crimingwhilewhite shows how unjust our country is

It is where white people talk about how they weren't arrested or brought up on criminal charges even though they should have been.  And why? So-called white privilege.  It shows how unjust our society remains.

  1. Except for the fact that most of the stories these people are posting are made up. #crimingwhilewhite is a joke! The real solution to the problem is to not resist arrest, attack a police office or commit crimes to begin with. Then you won't have to worry about being killed. Stop making things about race because it misses the bigger issue that these guys were criminals not innocent victims.

  2. How do you know they are ALL a joke? And Eric Garner was no criminal. He was just selling cigarettes. But you can continue to be an insensitive jerk if you like. If you ignore race, you are an idiot because it is a major issue.

  3. I am sure some aren't but I also know that many are because the authors said so. Just read some of them. They are ridiculous. Also name calling is not very becoming of you. Why are you ignoring two key facts. 1. He was committing a crime selling the cigarettes illegally. 2. He was RESISTING arrest. He would be alive if he wasn't resisting. If he complied with the officers request he would still be alive. Also he had been arrested over 30 times so this wasn't an isolated incident. He is not an innocent victim. He was a criminal it doesn't matter if he was black, blue, green, yellow or white.

    I have a very simple suggestion if you want to stay alive. Listen to the cops and let them do their job safely or better yet don't break the law and commit crimes. This is not about race it is about criminals doing stupid things.

  4. It is about race. I didn't call you a name. My statement was phrased conditionally. Being arrested doesn't make you a criminal. You saying "not obeying the police" subjects you to being killed is assinine. Why don't you reveal who you are? Afraid?

  5. Short of guilty verdicts, are you (and those with your ideological viewpoint) going to be happy with any situation like the ones you'd mentioned?

    Should each case be decided based on the evidence? Or... do prior grievances and wrongdoings mean present-day defendants should suffer for the sins of those in past years? As an attorney, is that "justice?"..
