The reductions that people like Paul are referring to are sentence reductions for non-violent offenders. On another note, if White, Black, and Hispanic offenders started to receive equivalent sentences for similar crimes, minority groups would begin to trust the criminal justice system and law enforcement more.
If the criminal justice system and law enforcement were fair across the board, more Black people would be cop lovers. Many Blacks just don't trust law enforcement or the criminal justice system, based on historical data.

The trouble makers did agitate the police. I agree with you there. Most of the people just wish to protest peacefully.

Or your "hate blackey" attitude. I'm Black, I don't hate you. I think you're slightly racist, but I don't hate you.

The Civil War was about slavery. Although it was indirectly, it was still about slavery. Southern Whites try to argue that the war was about states' rights. You can dress it up any way you wish. The biggest states' rights issue of that day was slavery, not trade. You still disagree? Then ask yourself this: If the south had won the war, would slavery have continued to exist?

Autry, I hate to say it. You're a misguided, confused African American if you believe "big government" is the cause of police brutality, Jim Crow, literacy tests, etc. RACIST government is to blame for Jim Crow. The FEDERAL government was against those policies to try to keep Blacks from voting. Those racist southern Democrats (Democrats at that time) implemented these policies. So Eric Garner's death via choke hold was the government's fault? You should be dizzy from all that spinning!!!
