The white boys just got off with a warning, while the black boys are facing up to 20 years in prison. Another example would be the beating of Rodney King beating in the early 1990's. After people saw that video, it was a riot, especially in L.A. They four officers that were involved were aquitted on all charges. To learn more, just click on the drawing of Rodney King being beaten to death by the L.A.P.D.
How can another person treat someone like that? I don't care if you're the damn police. Because you have the authority to take someone's life when it comes to protecting yourself. Another example would be Sean Bell. How many shots did the N.Y.P.D. fire? OVER 50 SHOTS
Blood on the car's upholstery.
The right side of Bell's car was riddled with bullet holes. Police forensics investigators came under fire for their handling of evidence during the trial.

A photo of the scene of the 50-bullet barrage, outside the Kalua nightclub in Queens, in Nov. 2006, shortly after the shooting.
The jacket Sean Bell was wearing when he was gunned down outside a Queens nightclub on his wedding day. The red marks show where police bullets pierced the fabric.
All this took place on November 2006. And also, let me remind you that it was on his wedding day. I was taking a course in law, and my professor happened to be a police officer. Even she was pissed. She then started telling us stories about how the police department treat most minorities "different." And that as an African American, you have to work twice, as hard. They just opened shots. I bet that if it was a white man they would've think twice. This kind of brutality among african american (men) needs to be stopped. I was so touched when I saw Jesse Jackson crying after hearing who won the presidency. Knowing that he use to march with Martin Luther King Junior, he never thought that he would live to see a black american president. America has come a long way. I never experienced racism until I came to America at the age of 13. Because where I am from, there were Blacks, chinese, whites, Indians and so on. We all treated each other the same. Even though I still believe America is till a racist country, they were willing to put aside that matter and chose someone that was willing to let the country go further.
