I see it as the other side of the same coin NWP. Ambivalence to state sponsored violence abroad shares ambivalence with domestic violence at home.
A society that can put hundreds of thousands of people in the ground abroad can't be expected to have compassion and humanity at home.
But yeah...... A constant unfolding horror.

I guarantee, GUARANTEE, THAT that if the parents are colored, they'll be charged, but if they're White... "Tragic accident".

"Armed when Black" is pretty much a death sentence, even when you have your concealed carry permit. (But "Armed when White" is not so safe, either when you interact with the police.) If I was Black, I would have my license and registration in my hand before the cop even gets out of his car. If I had a concealed carry permit, my weapon would be on the ground 10 feet from my window before he got there.
