Modern laws breed stupidity. A pedestrian has much better visibility and can hear a vehicle passing yet pedestrians have the right of way. I sympathize with the family of the victim and I dont know the circumstances behind this accident but too many times Ive seen people just walk in traffic without looking. I guess exercising your rights is more important than common sense and safety

Hector1980 your are correct from what I heard the Detective was speaking with Elshyan and he picked up his phone to text someone and the Detective told him that was disrespectful as he was speaking with him. You would think if the protest they were there for was so important and the Detective was speaking with him giving fatherly advice he would have the common curtesy to listen.

So is this group going to protest the deaths of two NYPD officers in the middle of Crossgates? NO? Why not? Because in both other previous cases it was preventable and in this the case of two dead humans no matter their race it was not? These two guys were doing a job where they were standing up for your rights including the right to protest got killed and yet we don't seem to have the same number screaming for them.

Well its a good thing none of the attackers were tortured. That would have been inhumane.

You are correct about complaints against police and it does come with the job, HOWEVER, when you have a President and an Attorney General backing these protests and showing support to everyone BUT the police that changes the game. The legal system did it's job and people don't like it. The powers that be should be defending the law instead of inciting a riot!

Such a double standard. People first cry police are targeting individuals unfairly, stopping them for no reason or "harassing them". Now all of a sudden, police aren't doing enough. Well folks, you can't have it both ways. This is what is going to happen when everyone cry's foul about the police. I wouldn't doubt it if crime starts to increase. Not just here but nationally as well. How can we expect the police to do their jobs properly when many of the people they encounter call them "racist"? Or threaten them with a lawsuit etc.? To make matters worse, no political or public figure is standing up for them. I would imagine its a tough time to be a police officer. The bed has been made, now we must sleep in it...
