OK. Now that they are killing white kids, I think it is time to take notice.

-Parents of unarmed white teen shot dead by police on a first date claim he was murdered as private autopsy suggests cop 'shot him from behind'
-Zachary Hammond, 19, was shot on July 26 in Seneca, South Carolina
-Was on a date with Tori Morton, 23, who was eating ice cream at the time
-Police set up a drugs buy to snare the pair for possession of marijuana
-Officer has claimed he shot him because he feared for his life
-The force have refused to reveal his name despite the response
-Family are now demanding answers and want someone held accountable

Where is the outrage

Yes why aren't white citizens of this town marching?

They have few personal negative experiences with the police. Protests would go against their tendency to make heroes out of all policeman, who protect them daily from "those people". It would mean reversing their tendency to always assume the peace officer innocent, and the perp 100% guilty. Lifetimes of defending police actions under all circumstances and demonizing the dead as deserving, could be called into question.

Unpossible.

Where is the outrage, there is zero media coverage, there are no protests.

You are so full of shit. A Google search for Zachary Hammond yields "About 1,090,000 results (0.42 seconds)". The very article in the original post is The Daily Mail, a rag you'd call mainstream liberal bias media.

FortWayne says

When Zimmerman shot that black kid, you couldn't miss it even if you want to.

Zimmerman got so much media attention because
1. The cops did not arrest or charge him until AFTER the massive protest and most people rightfully believed he wouldn't be charged unless there was public pressure because of Zimmerman's connections. He got away with shitloads of crimes without being charged or having the charges dismissed.
2. The case quickly became about the controversial Stand Your Ground law because this was an early possible legal strategy for the defense.

FortWayne says

ghetto were protesting on a daily basis

The "ghetto", code for "niggers", as you call it, was protesting because there is an obvious two-century long violent oppression of blacks in this country which clearly continues to today. There is nothing in white communities or households that even remotely approaches the all-out violent warfare the state wages against blacks. There just isn't. If there were, whites would turn against the police in a minute.

Unfortunately, as Vicente correctly points out, most whites have a great fear of blacks, particularly young black men, and so they want the police to treat all blacks as criminal scumbag and keep them away from white families. As such, fearful (cowardly) whites glorify the police, who are just basically uneducated thugs with badges. If they didn't have the badges, they'd be in prison themselves. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, about 10% of cops. The other 90% are alpha-male or butch-female Stone Age brutes.

FortWayne says

If your peeps cared about white folk, maybe white folk would care about them.

No they wouldn't. Your hypothesis is empirically false.

I have stated on this forum many times
1. The only way to protect your rights and your family is to protect everyone else.
2. Your white skin won't protect you from police because they can and do commit atrocities against whites as well. It's not as often as blacks, but if a cop doesn't feel like you are bowing to him like a slave, he'll fucking kill you to satisfy his ego.

Put me on the jury and I'll have this cop and his entire family eaten alive by bears. That's an appropriate punishment and it would send a message to all criminal cops. So don't give me any bullshit that I don't have outrage over this murder.

An independent autopsy has concluded that Zachary Hammond, an unarmed white 19-year-old killed by a Seneca, S.C., police officer July 26 during a drug bust, was shot from the side, contradicting what the officer said led up to the fatal shooting, The Guardian reports.

The officer claimed that the teen was driving the vehicle toward him, causing the officer to fear for his life and to fire at the young man. However, the Hammond family’s attorney Eric Bland said that the autopsy now raises questions about the validity of the police report.

“When he [the officer] shot, it was physically impossible for the car to hit him because he’s next to him [Hammond],” Bland told The Guardian. “So unless a hurricane comes and blows the car over, it’s physically impossible for him to be hit by a car at that point.”

“It is not reasonable,” the autopsy reads, according to the news site, that Hammond “would have suffered these injuries in these anatomic locations [the back of his shoulder and the side of his chest] had [he] been shot from either the rear or the front of the vehicle.”

This fucking criminal cop murders an innocent man and then he and his criminal cop buddies commit further crimes including perjury, obstruction of justice, tampering with evidence, conspiracy to commit various felonies, and interfering with a homicide investigation. As I've stated many times, there aren't "just a few bad apples". The conspiracies to cover the original crime and the commission of all the subsequent crimes by many police demonstrate that the vast majority of police are crooked thugs. Where's the outrage over that? That's the real question.

Not only the murderer cop and his family should be eaten alive by bears, but so too should all the other criminal cops who helped him and their families. When these thug cops attack any person, they threaten both you and your family. They endanger the lives of everyone's children. It is only fitting that their own families act as a deterrent for their crimes. How's that for outrage, FortWayne? Just thinking about these scumbags makes me wonder if the Romans had the right idea with colosseums. We could make their executions a public affair.

All white kid's lives matter. This particular outrage is not important in the grand scheme of white kids being killed by blacks and whites alike.

If Ben Carson tried to bring up the more general issue of white victims, he'd just be shouted down, so why post this thread?

While we're at it, why hasn't Ben Carson stood up to say that white lives matter? What about all white lives?

When a black kid kills a white kid, he either gets the death penalty or decades if not life in prison. When the exact same thing happens to cops who kill innocent people, my outrage over that injustice will die.

If they mattered just as much, there would be equal outrage from them when someone who is not poor black gets shot. Here is a clear example of a white kid getting shot, and crickets from your worthless deadbeat friends in the ghetto. So it's not just as much, it's not equal.

You're correct.

IF it were equal, then senseless unnecessary killings of black children or men would be just as rare as senseless unnecessary killings of white children or white men (per capita) in America. Only then could we expect the outrage over senseless unnecessary killings of black children or men (by cops) to be equal to the amount of outrage over senseless unnecessary killings of white children or white men (by cops). Equally low that is, relatively speaking.

A lot of people, including good cops, which I place at a way higher percentage than Dan, are outraged about incompetent pussy rookie cops that fire their weapons way too easily, such as in the case of this kid. My guess is that 90% of cops read this story, and think "that SHOULD NOT have happened." Unfortunately, of that 90% maybe some significant fraction of them are willing to back the guy up for his mistake, rather than see him punished. Maybe they fear that their ability to defend themselves and each other is jeopardized, if police start being harshly punished every time a killing is questionable.

I'm not saying I agree with this view. I can just understand that the cops perspective might not be as simple as it would seem.

The cop was angry that this kid was spending all day and night smoking dope and having a teenage girl sucking his dick while he went home to his beastly monster of a sow who sat watching bestial porn on her laptop in the kitchen while eating pork rinds and farting savagely.

Finally, he just couldn't take any more and blew the little asshole's brains out, exactly as the founding fathers intended.

This goes on. There has been plenty of outrage, and the Fed govt is now investigating along with the state.

They're probably working really hard gathering evidence to figure out if the cop is guilty of murder and whether he needs to be tried for it or whether he's just going to lose his job. Obviously it was murder (and an incompetent stupid cop). But the bar for arresting him for murder ? I don't know. IT would be encouraging, if he ends up being arrested and later found guilty of at least manslaughter.

Marcus sure does troll this site quite a bit, trying to make people think Traygone Fartin was something more than the drug abused, thieving ghetto typical Dindu Nuffin, just like Michael Down. Traygone Fartin had Watermelon Fruit Punch, not Iced Tea, as the court evidence pictures show. That ghetto nog talked about his love for "Lean" on social media, as his parents hadn't deleted the messages quick enough. "Lean", as is known in the ghetto, is where Fruit Juice (Watermelon in this case, typical) is mixed with Codeine Cough Syrup, and hard candy is dissolved into it for flavoring, aka the Skittles in this case. 'Lil Skittlez Fartin was found to have liver damage, a greasy weirdness the Autopsy revealed. He was found with women's gold jewelry and a screwdriver in his backpack at school, after he spray painted a wall at the school. Traygone Fartin had pictures of a gun on his phone, the gold jewelry, a weed plant, a clear cup with 2 inches worth of red syrupy fluid which was 100 to 1, prescription cough syrup, and he also had nude pics of girls under 18 on his phone. Some cop deleted the 600 plus photos, but they were all recovered and the cop was fired. None of that documented evidence was allowed into court because the Judge was a libtarded plant, not looking for truth or real justice. The muslim POS in the mosqehouse adored Traygone Fartin, and used tax dollars to drum up community outrage. None of this info will matter to idiots like "Marcus", because he's stupid, and his replies show/prove it. Michael Down stole from the store, strong armed the shop keeper, had pictures of himself flashing gang signs and holding guns, like a typical Dindoo Nuffin. These "black lives" do not matter at all, as they are just statistics and typical idiots anyone with half a brain would want to be around.

Unless you are an idiot monster in human form and The Internet’s Stupidest Man, in which case you are still flogging the idea that Trayvon Martin was just asking for it.

The protests about Trayvn were because the guy that murdered him, wasn't even arrested. You watch. THere's a good chance this cop will be arrested. Obvios;y he will at a minimum not be a cop again.

Sure I'll answer them. I don't know why the media uses an old picture--maybe it's because that's what the family gave them.
