The deaths of Michael Brown and that one other guy have saddened America deeply. (At least one person in America.) It's not fair that police have to kill innocent people. Police are on this Earth and created by god to protect us, not kill us.

okay, so let's set something straight right off the bat. the deaths of those people you mentioned were those peoples fault. no they didn't deserve death no one really ever does. however, when you look at it from a logical point of veiw they did wrong and wouldn't do what was asked of them and were extremely voilent those cops defended themselves which led to the death of those people. a cop has just as much right to defend his/herself at all costs as do the rest of us, every cop is serving us US citizens! no killing innocent people! african americans bring everything upon themselves that they get, it isn't anybody else's fault but the their's if they abided the law instead of breaking it then they'd have nothing to complain about!

1. You don't know how to use the Shift key!!!
2. They didn't break the law
3. We still don't know what happened with Eric Garner before the choke hold death.

They were not innocent. You should do some research on this topic before making a debate about it and sounding like you don't know anything.

African Americans while they have been mistreated can still help the current situation by being proper citizens and not putting themselves in the positions they do that cause so many problems. personally, I believe they have less to complain about history wise than the native Americans do, the "whites" killed almost all them, even a slave still lives if even poorly it has been said that any life is better than no life. I wonder why this guy doesn't come back to the debate, the only thing he has said to counter me is to point out my bad grammar which i don't focus on because I am trying to prove a point not be an english teacher

These cops are trained to shoot when they feel threatened not take the extra step to risk your life and take control of the situation without grabbing their gun or provoking people. African Americans have a lonnnngggg history of being treated wrongly and it's completely ignorant to think that most of thier historical misfortune (segregation. slavery, being uprooted from the homeland, racism, hangings hate crimes). That is how the UK is able to successfully keep the crime rate down with the vast majority of it's officers walking around unarmed.

What are you arguing? Are you arguing that black people should never die?
