As in every other major city in the US, the perpetrators and victims of homicide and violent crime are overwhelmingly black and hispanic. Where is the outrage from the so-called "community leaders"? Where is the demand for accountability? There is genocide occurring in minority communities in every city in this country, and the same do-nothing asshat politicians are elected and the same excuses, blame, denials, and deflections are trotted out at every opportunity.

You don't even have to break the law for the cops to shoot at you in Texas or in Florida. No, siree, Billy Bob.

That all ! In phoenix there is a homicide everyday and 90% are cops shooting suspects, Talk about a police state. Dont break the law here the cops will just shoot you down and let the coroner figure out what happened ,because they wont tell the truth or take the blame for their NAZI tactics
