  1. If you're tired of your "black boys" getting killed … RAISE THEM to not steal, beat up or shoot people!!! The thug life is not a good life!!!

  2. You wont tolerate “Violence” towards your officers?

    We won’t tolerate Violence towards our people!

  3. Ironically all these so called outraged protesters aren't concerned about the guy shot 5 times for his car .
    He must have been a white man.
