If we are not supposed to judge all black people based on the actions of a few, why can't we have the same standard for the police?

    Great question. The reason that does not apply to the police is because of the police brotherhood "code of silence" where good cops hide, cover up, and protect the criminal activity of the bad cops. As long as good cops (which I believe to be the vast majority) are enabling the bad cops, there are no good cops the public can count on. That does not appear to be changing and it destroys ALL credibility of law enforcement

    Because police have to make a judgment call very quickly- You have to make a split second judgment call on whether someone has a gun if you cant see their hands- and you have to pray to God you're right or else you're dead. Thus, it makes more sense to believe if a few black people behave a certain way, it's going to make you nervous around all black people when its your life on the line if you're wrong. You can't be too trusting in law enforcement and not get yourself killed. What we know is that it is a fact that black people are more likely to resist arrest and to possess illegal weapons. (this is because black people love to throw the race card when they're caught dead in the crosshairs of being wrong.) That is an uncontroverted fact if you're intellectually honest.

    We do.  What makes you think that we don't?  In fact they are held to a higher standard.  Bad police are eventually fired (especially now with all the videos available) and/or put in prison.  I assume all people are good unless given reason to believe otherwise.  I assume black, white, red, green and purple people are good unless proven otherwise.  Same with any group of people.

    Although there are certain groups of people I believe are bad for our culture and that would be people who belong to hate groups; e.g. KKK, White Supremacy groups, Nazism, etc.  Any group which is known to spew hatred towards others because of their race, creed or color.

    We do.  No one is saying all police are bad.
