  1. White folks need to also attend this town hall meeting since their perspective on how law enforcement handles minorities in the community is totally different from the FACTS!

    SInce most of them are never pulled over for DWW-they do not know what it is like to be harassed by a cop!

    Since they are not put in choke holds on the streets and choked to death, they do not know what this experience is all about.

    Since un-armed White boys are not gunned down in the streets, they do not know what this is like.

    They need to dig their heads out of their asses and see the light of day.

    Until the day that Whites can possibly put themselves in others shoes, they all need to just stfu!!!!
