    It’s a double standard when a black cop shoots an unarmed white male…don’t hear a peep about it in the media..why is that??

    Jesse, Al…a bunch of hypocrites!! And the media? The worst offenders of all. Tragic that this double standard always occurs. Here’s hoping the courts will get these cases correct and that the police will have their day and not be strung up before due process.
