  1. Rogue Police Officers
    The shooting of two NYPD policemen in Brooklyn should be a wakeup call to police departments to clean up their contingent. Police departments must no longer protect rogue officers in their rank. The public is infuriated by recent incidents of police brutality and the lack of accountability. Frustration and the feeling of helplessness could result in such criminal activities. A few rogue officers in any department endanger the lives of policemen everywhere.

  2. I don’t condone murder. But it is what it is!!! The Police are not above the law. People are sick and tired of the abuse and disrespect they have for Blacks. Maybe someone will listen now. Eric Garner and Mike Brown had families that love them. NYPD has been racially biased against blacks for too long. It’s time to change stop protecting and lying for bad police that kill people. That blue uniform doesn’t make you above the law. So- called good cops need to break their silence and stand up for whats right and be able to do their jobs better by getting rid of the bad cops. And people should stop saying that blacks hate cops. People just hate bad abusive cops that think that badge and gun gives the the right to hurt, disrespect and kill. All Lives Matter!!! R.I.P. Ismaaiyl Brinsley May god forgive you and allow you into his kingdom.

    • Why didn’t Nigger Ismaaiyl Brinsley shoot two Black NYC Cops ?????



      • Afraid to give your name asshole. I worn the auxiliary badge for NYPD and I was proud of it and are the kind of people that cause all this racism between blacks and whites, and you should be the one that needed to get them bullets those cops got not them and other white asshole like you. Oh yeah,I’m white and I love black people too.

    • All lives matter except for those who kill on impulse like this asshole. His life did not matter and he will forever burn in hell. Hopeful this will be a wake up call that the dumb asses protesting are causing frustration between race lines. Stop protesting and move on with your lives. Your freedom of speech is something ill fight to protect, but don’t use it to promote violence and frustration or you’re as bad as the man with the gun.

    • Blacks need to know about the rule of law. Police have a right ro arrest you when you violate the law. If you resist, any reasonable force may be used against you including deadly force. This is the law, like or not. If you are too dumb to know this,and resist, then you deserve whatever happens!!! We live in a civil society. If you do not like it, you are free to leave at any time!!

  3. There are many villains in this story when people such as Barrack Hussein Obama, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and the mayor of New York city all were instrumental in inciting violence against Americans.
    It doesn’t matter their actions are just another reason these are the Last Days Obama is ready to stab the Jews in the back. You have all been blinded to ignore the truth the actions and deeds of the Left.

  4. 200 million whites in America vs. 38 million bold Afro-American bruthas and sustas.

    Sure y’all want a Race War?

    Be careful what you wish for.

    (And you’ll not I didn’t even count the Hispanics and Asians.)

  5. I would love to know what his language has anything to do with what he has done ? This article is biased and horribly written . You just gave people another reason to profile and judge and cause more racism instead reporting fucking news .

  6. All lives matter except for those who kill on impulse like this asshole. His life did not matter and he will forever burn in hell. Hopeful this will be a wake up call that the dumb asses protesting are causing frustration between race lines. Stop protesting and move on with your lives. Your freedom of speech is something ill fight to protect, but don’t use it to promote violence and frustration or you’re as bad as the man with the gun.

    • Tell that to Obama,sharpton,holder and de blasio hiding behind his family for the sandanistin vote. The economy isn’t the only recession this country has seen under this progressive mindset. Race relations trump it sad to say.

    • Hey PeaceFrog,

      How do you keep spamming without having your comments mass deleted from the sight?

      Is it because you are not joining in on online banter by singling out over the top comments no sane person would ever say in public outside of a High School cafeteria?

      Warmest regards from your silly co-poster,
      Happy Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms Periods and other silly names used on this site

      P.S. LASAGA COMMENTS are still the best comments on this sight

  10. Yup while your at it we need to shoot up some more white schools kill the white bastards before they grow up to be be ADULT CRACKERS!!!!!! Come on let’s have another school shooting we know you animals are good for one!!! Then go blame it on some mental illness no one has ever heard of! Yes please I’m waiting…..nasty, stinking having kids with your sibling motherfuckers

    • How ignorant! You are a disgusting, uneducated, racist pussy! I can tell by what you wrote that you have no knowledge of the English language. (Grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.) Let me school you a bit. Here are some facts. If you need the definition of anything I am saying, just let me know. White bastards? There are more unmarried black women with children (bastards) than unmarried white women with children. Reason being? A welfare check, food stamps, section 8 housing etc. They have made a habit out of living off of the government. Another thing you should know, there is WAY more black on black murder than white on black. If you can read, do a little research on that subject instead of believing those “race pimps” Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Basically, your people are killing each other but you are too stupid to realize it. You have only been taught to blame the white man instead of using your brain. Sad thing is, no one is even showing respect for the 2 innocent cops that were killed by a pussy thug! I would gladly start or join a protest or rally for them, but I have to work at something called a job. Do you know what that is? It is a place where you earn something called a paycheck. I am sure that you will have a very creative reply lol. Let’s see……….. Beastiality? Incest? Bring it! It will only prove my point of you being a dumbass lol!

      • Jeesse you are an uneducated ass clown of sorts. First out, if you do the right research you’ll learn that white on white crime is and always been higher than Blacks and any other race. Whites kill so much to they don’t look at their killings as killings. Whites also are the MAJORITY on welfare and always been the leading welfare recipient. Most crimes are committed by a member of their own race (white on white crime 84%) which is a very high number for a ruling race that promotes racism and non employment of others. Whites are suffering today because others are freeing themselves from the real niggers (whites) and re educating the nation with truth. Study hard and you’ll learn that the white race is a BASTARD race, if you were to get a DNA on your pappy there’s a 90% chance that pervert you grew up to know ISN”T your father. See whites will NEVER tell the truth about how subhuman they really are, but the world knows and hates whitey.

  11. This is all orchestrated to get rid of our American legal system so that marshal law can come in and babysit us. Some black people still need to wake up and quit blaming white Americans for what the Satanists in government are brainwashing you into believing. You fell for it, even more than white Americans when the Satanists wanted you to abort your babies, calling it a Woman’s right! When martial law takes over and we are all marched off to prison camps and maybe death camps, who will the extreme radicals have to blame then? Hang on to your guns, and act like responsible Americans! Earn your right to have rights by acting like Americans! A house divided can not stand, and the Satanists in government know this! We need to concentrate on arresting the evil in government, and they are distracting you from them by causing this fighting amongst ourselves! Grow up! Learn who’s evil in government, and go after them! We need to stop them before they stop us all! These pedophiles in government are molesting our children while we are fighting with each other! The British Queen and monarchy are finally being brought to justice, and our democrat and republican elite know that they are next. So they are distracting us by causing race hatred, that was mostly just made up, until it started to escalate into real hate! Wake up, America! We need to stick together and rid our country of the real evil! They are the puppeteers that have been pulling our strings for so long! Don’t judge all people by a few bad ones!

  12. I wonder how long ago that picture was taken of him with his mother in the background since she said that she hadn’t seen him in quite awhile. Mom

  13. The “We Want Dead Cops” chant was misunderstood by the local Fox News affiliate. They were saying “We won’t stop, we can’t stop, til killer cops, are in cell blocks.” It was for a completely different motive than other recent protests though along the same lines.

  14. black people do understand it’s not its white people who are fed up with your asses. My boyfriend is Asian. My friends are Asians and work at Chinese restaurant. You think white people can’t stand you. Talk to an Asian about black people. And you will realize you need to add the Asian population to that 200 million

  15. Wow. This man had no car and a stolen cell phone and was able to get away so quickly and get on a bus to NYC. How did he get to the bus station? How did he get through port authority with a loaded weapon? The police knew exactly who he was and he was able to make all the way to NYC. How many cops did he pass on his way to NYC? And who is this woman? It is ironic that she has military connections.

  16. Websites like this make a damn good argument for going back to paper and ink. At least then I won’t have to listen to my hard drive thrash for ten minutes before turning the page.

  17. do they mean “The Black Gorilla Family”? He just gave cops another reason to distrust blacks and shoot them before they shoot you.
