White people simply don't cause public safety concerns like other races do (being facetious). As least, that's the subliminal thinking of the police officers when they confront a group of protesters.
If that was black people, the shooting would have started before anyone ever made it in. The double standard is maddening.
If the people protesting and physically threatening harm to elected officials where any other color, there would be tanks , tear gas and bullets, this is double standards at its finest. It’s important that we use the outrage of this moment to drive more equitable enforcement. The law should not bend for some and break for others.
Sadly the double standards exists all over the world.
America has been seen, for ages, to be the beacon of democracy and the land of opportunities . The Trump era has just demonstrated that there is a long way to go .... even for the so called leading democracy in the world.
institutional racism and prejudice is rooted far to deep.
good luck to America and the new elected government
ps love your app .
Sadly this is the current prevailing system. And it is also sad that so many are oblivious to what is clearly in front of them. It is shocking how someone would be shot for breaking a window at target but allowed to freely when attacking the Capitol. I do not condone violence and do not think anyone should be shot. actions do highlight the disparity in the way that people of colour are treated.
love the app. Keep it up. One day no one will understand what family guy was trying to say
@Sami Omar sad but true 😪
