Hold on, I am going to search the internet to prove that the claims by Barkingturtle are false, and to do that, I just need to find proof that Gbaji has NEVER been in the same room as a female before!

We should start a band, and call it "Two Bands", and we could write songs like "Twin Slits", and "You're New Wave, and still a Particle of the Problem"

It was brown and moved toward a law officer. What did you expect to happen?

I completely support the cop's choice to shoot the suspect. The suspect was given clear instruction to move along and instead chose to attack the officer. Though, I do think that the cop took too long to take the second shot. He should have put the suspect out of it's misery a bit quicker. Though, honestly, I would have shot at first site. Those like the suspect are nothing but vicious little bastards that destroy property and disrupt the peace. Also, they suck at predicting the weather.

This sort of thing happened when I worked in retail at least once a week or so. I'm sure it happens all the time, everywhere. I wonder why only now it has made such a frequent appearance in the news. The same can be said for all of the police shootings. Did people just not care enough for it to be news 10 years ago?

I assume it has to do with video recordings on cell phones.

It's a wild varmint and it was charging. That's how you get rabies. I'd shoot the thing, too.

You would shoot it because you work for Trump, and it's brown.

I'm happy to say I have never had to deal with that, though I imagine a bunch of five year olds hopped up on birthday cake isn't much different.

And yes, after a few hours of that I'm pretty sure if one of them had charged at me I'd have shot them, too.

Children are known to be disease vectors. Ten kids only having 100s of parasites seems on the low end.

You have zero evidence to support that statement.
I have myself and one other person that actually looked into it and found zero examples.


Which, as I've stated multiple times already, could either be because there are zero cases of white people ever being arrested at a Starbucks (or while moving into a new house, or shopping in a store, or basically doing any other activity mentioned as an example of bias against blacks in this thread), *or* it could simply be that you can't find examples because of how search engines index searches.

Quote:
You have zero evidence otherwise.


Sigh. FBI statistics show around 2.2 million arrests of blacks inn 2017, and 5.8 arrests of whites. Whites make up about 72% of the population while blacks make up about 13%. Doing some quick math, that means that blacks are arrested around 2.5x as often as whites. A problematic social statistic, to be sure, and something we're discussed in the past, but that's not the point here. The point is that those 5.8 million white people were arrested for something. It's incredibly unlikely that none of them involved some form of disturbance calls at a business.

So we can assume that because we do a google search for "white people arrested at Starbucks" and only get a massive list of sites and articles arguing about how white people need to be more aware of the plight of black people being unfairly targeted and arrested because of their race, doesn't actually mean that no white people have ever been arrested because they did something at a Starbucks and got a cop called on them for it.

I get that you want to believe this, but it's just absurd. Again. What do you think all those white people are getting arrested for? Basic statistics ensures that at least some of them are being arrested for the exact same things that are being provided as examples of racial bias when it happens to a black person.

Quote:
It's the age of social media, if you want to argue that somehow if a white person were arrested for waiting on friends and wanting to use the bathroom at a Starbucks that it wouldn't appear on the internet then ... well, I'm going to have to make fun of you for living in the past.


Will it show up in a search engine is the better question. Maybe instead of relying on social media, you should look at crime stats? I don't feel like pouring through FBI tables to get the 2017 numbers, but I stumbled on one from 2012 (yeah, from a google search, go figure), and it's showing me 34k robberies, 667k larceny/theft (which would include stuff like shoplifting, right?), 125k for vandalism, 262k disorderly conduct, and 32k curfew and loitering violations (these are actual charges, not just arrests). Um... I suppose we could just assume that none of these ever occurred in or around a Starbucks, or any of the other examples mentioned in this thread, but then we'd just be cherry picking cases, right? They happened "somewhere".

Quote:
Maybe there have been arrests. Anything is a possibility, but without evidence you don't get to just say it happens as a fact. You have to actually, you know, prove it.


Again. What do you think all those white people are being arrested for? Where do you think they are being arrested? You're being silly.

Quote:
Sure, there is zero evidence that they were arrested for being assholes, they must have been arrested for being assholes.


What do you think disorderly conduct is? And those tend to happen in public places, where there are other people who complain and call the cops. You know, just like in the various examples in this thread. A reasonable person would conclude, as I have, that google searches aren't a great way to determine the frequency with which various things actually happen in the world around us. They're great for telling us what people are talking about the most though. Which just highlights the gap between reality and narrative on this subject.

Being wrong multiple times still doesn't eventually make you right nor is it educational; It just bores people. And the more you do it, the faster they get bored of it.

Then prove I did it wrong and show us an example of a white person being arrested at a Starbucks for being an asshole. It's your claim, so it's your burden of proof, not mine.

You kind of have to assume, since you can't actually prove it.

That's good, since you're not exactly very good at reading tables, General.
gbaji wrote:

Unless you can prove otherwise the crime statistic of white people being arrested for being assholes at Starbucks is 0.
gbaji wrote:

You're the one that started with "exact same actions" to this weird "white people mass murdering is the same as black people politely asking to use the bathroom" broad generalization hoping to hide your blunder.
gbaji wrote:

They're not being arrested for not being assholes, that's for certain.
gbaji wrote:
You're being silly.
How dare I expect you to prove your false assumptions with more than just random guesses.
gbaji wrote:
What do you think disorderly conduct is?
I know for a fact, not assumption or broad generalization or "pretty kind of sort of 99% sure" or anything, that not being an asshole isn't disorderly conduct. You still haven't proven they were arrested for actually causing a disturbance, and you haven't proven that not being assholes also gets white people arrested.
gbaji wrote:

And yet you refuse to cross that gap back to reality.
