What? All police do is shoot Bahamian males . What the heck is going on? Are these racist policemen shooting helpless black men?

What an idiotic statement to make!!!---before putting your fingers to your keep keyboard--may I suggest that you search the meaning of the word "racism" to know its meaning (sm.)

Police officers only shoot at people shooting at them or trying to disarm them. Stop defending criminals. There is nothing racist here...

You may say that sarcastically, but the commissioner of police recently expressed genuine concern about the increase in the number of police involved shootings and killings. Both are now at record highs. And since the coroner’s court is not fully functioning, some of these shootings are not being fully investigated. And yes they are virtually all Black, Bahamian males who are being shot and killed. But the population is probably 95 percent Black.

I also agree. If you were not there to see how this unfolded yourself you can only go by what is presented by the press which is credible Intel. There are some heinous crimes unfolding everyday by people you yourself may know personally. It is up to us as the people to inform so that these kind of incidents occur less. Question, what if a civilian instead of contacting authorities went and tried to help that person and that individual life was taken as a result. Not trying to seem cold towards the matter at hand but you have to keep an open mind to every situation and look at it from all aspects. That could've been a family member who could have been accosted by this individual or he may have been plotting on someone close to anyone of us. It's saddening that the individual passed but, pay attention to the facts presented he approached with intent. That's all there is until proven false.
