Police misconduct is a real issue, but it has been falsely turned into a racial issue when it's not.

I'm glad not every candidate is a carbon copy of Bernie "We must apologize for slavery" Sanders. Black lives are more likely to be claimed by a black male between the ages of 15 and 35.

I dislike Bernie " Caitlyn Jenner is a real women" Sanders as much as you.

He can't stop talking about apologizing to black people and marching with MLK. It is a message in his campaign that is resonating. I'm not going to make up lies about him or trying to shame him. He does enough of that on his own.

Why is the only race to stop their slavery the only ones needing to apologize for it?

You can't give the Police more power without instigating more Police Brutality. If he does that he's also going to have to make sure that they actually get punished for what they do...

If you want to solve police brutality, the best way is to take criminals off the streets so that there's nobody that police are tempted to brutalise.

Let's face facts, there's a lot of scumbag "gangstas" that pretty much anybody would love a chance to beat the shit out of, if we got a chance.

Leave them to rot in prison where they belong, and police can go back to being cheerful, helpful blokes getting cats out of trees instead of a paramilitary force perpetually looking over their shoulders.

Have you been living under a rock? The police brutalize anybody and everybody because they can, and I'm not talking about cases where the force was excessive but some force was arguably justified like with Treyvon Martin, but cases where someone was totally innocent but the police detained anyway and somehow in detaining an individual who didn't resist and wasn't dangerous managed to mistreat, injure, and even kill them.

Gangs kill more people than police do. Trump once again taking the logical position, he definitely has my vote in the future

Gangs don't hold power over the people. A gang member can't pull you over on the road and then arrest you for failing to use a signal, but a cop can. Cops are employees of the government and there are steps we can take to limit their use of unnecessary force and exploitation of power. For a gang there are no such steps we can take. Organized crime has existed since Ancient Egypt. Sure we can take a few out, but we'll never come close to getting rid of them.

Trump should spend less time imagining how the Great Wall of China Trump would look in Texas and more time looking at how well Mexico's gang war is going.

True, it can never be entirely eradicated. But if the US could get its gang activity down to the levels enjoyed by other civilised countries then it would be a quantitative improvement in quality of life -- especially for those who live in those areas which are currently ghettos.

If you want to improve quality of life for black people in America, then locking every single gang member up in prison for the rest of their life would be the perfect place to start.

The difference is I'm not supposed to call a gang when I'm in trouble or need help. Gangs killing people isn't as much of a problem as police killing and violating people's rights.

Corrupt police will exploit society and create gangs that will do horrific things you'd scream yourself awake into a cold sweat from.

Police are supposed to arrest and ticket those that break the law. Police are not supposed to punish. Why is this so difficult to understand? Have you ever heard the phrase " who will protect us from our protectors"?

I'm so sick of the faggots on Reddit and the like hating police. If you hate police, you are likely the problem. The internet needs to chill on the cop hate. These people protect you from the worst of the worst everyday. I honestly don't understand hating cops unless you are doing something wrong.

I get it internet. You hate authority. Relax, they're helping you.

I don't think he's great, but he's so much better than everyone else it's depressing.
