Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old under the influence of drugs was shot and killed Oct. 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama. Despite public pressure for an indictment, a Mobile County grand jury refused to bring charges against Officer Austin, concluding that the officer acted in self-defense.

“Officer acted in self-defense” is an all-cure card to keep them out of trouble forever.
Where’s the outrage?
Why didn’t Alabama burn? Don’t honkey lives count for anything in this country?
Didn’t this kid have “white privilege”? Or if he did, what good was it?
Where was “Rev. Al”? Too busy in Florida at the time?
So many questions, so few answers...
If you collected all 4,400-odd newspapers of the US for a week...you’d likely find at least a hundred folks killed who were in some drunken or doped-up situation. Some killed by cops....some killed by neighbors....some killed by strangers....and some killed by relatives. Nothing new.
About three years ago in DC, we had some landscaper mowing a yard and left his rake just barely on the street. Some taxi driven by a Latino guy comes by....thinks the rake just fell off a truck...stops and attempts to pick up the rake. Landscaper starts yelling and coming over. Latino taxi guy freaks out....pulls a pistol....fires. Dead landscaper. Taxi guy is charged with 2nd degree murder. All over a stupid rake in the street, and some fear of what the landscaper might have done to him. That’s our society today....doing stupid stuff with implications.
When do we riot?
I’d like to have a 3D TV.
No justice, free TVs!
I am really beginning to wonder. My opinion, rightly or wrongly, is, no they don't.
Officer acted in self-defense, only for black on white, homies agree
Whenever you want.
White lives matter!
All police badge numbers should begin with a double-o since they all have a license to kill.
It happened in 2012. We missed the window of opportunity.
I'm outraged, not at the outcome of the grand jury, I'm outraged that this happened over two years ago, and I never even heard about it because of the color of the "victim" and the cop.
Reverse that and it's a national story.
I HATE THE MSM.
I'm waiting for the liquor store to open up at the strip mall at 10:00 am
Then I'm "burning the bitch down"...
Oh' Wait, I need to learn some blood gang signs first....If I'm going to burn it down I need the right gang signs for the TV cameras...
Yo holmes - when I was a kid we used to hang out in a mostly white gang, and our street sign would be throwing up three fingers when our fellow hommies would pass by.
We called ourselves “Boy Scouts”.
Yeah, those khaki shirts and dark green pants were a dead giveaway...
They were cutting edge...every "gang" had their own color scarf to identify their "gang" affiliation too...
Can't argue with the facts - while some are justified shoots, there are way too many where it appears that they pull the trigger for the "convenience" of not having to go through the "hassle" of subduing a non-lethal "threat".
