Of course, blacks riot and shoot people in response to police misconduct. Everyone knows that makes police less likely to shoot, after all. The logic is impeccable.

I intended to go to sleep an hour ago, but the news coverage of this ordeal has kept me awake.

I wonder how much of these incidents can be attributed to the media's sensationalism.

The media do not cause people to riot and shoot police officers. Stupid moral depravity and a culture of barbarism and violence causes what is currently happening in Dallas.

This is why people harbor racist inclinations... it's because they know that just below the surface of bullshit_narratives of social justice and liberal nonsense, lies a disgusting kind of violence you would only expect in Arab countries, or barbarism you might expect from African war lords.

Not directly. But I wouldn't doubt the ridiculous coverage incidents like the Martin and Brown cases got feeds onto it.

I dont know how much it causes it, but it certainly amplifies it by giving the ones perpetrating the crime 15 minutes of fame
