    You say that this last bit is unnecessary yet here we are in a Swonky thread about the story. This is the part that made it news worthy to Swonky:

    "I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities."

    It's great that this stop had a happy ending, bravo to all parties involved. It also doesn't mean that all cops are good and that, going forward, every stop is going to end well. There are still tons of concerns when it comes to the way in which minorities and minority communities are policed that this one case shouldn't distract from that.

    FOr quite awhile now. The list grows longer each day. I have started a second and third page as a result. Thank God :law: found
    an incident (non incident) so that all black folks can stop their car in safety and relax knowing they are gonna be home for supper........

        You left out something between the "doesn't mean that" and "all cops are good". You left out the bit that it "doesn't mean a large number of black citizens will remain polite and respectful to the police when stopped". That's a big part of the situation you are wholly ignoring, and was in fact a good part of the article and why that law posted it.

            Unfortunately, typically what Snopes does best. I don’t think they are untruthful ... at least not on purpose ... but their verbal gymnastics trying to prove liberal myths have sone sort of truth to them, when twisted to (or beyond) the breaking point, all while using the same methods to show conservative myths untrue, is an art best left to those who possess a fair amount of liberal nuance.

                  What did you think about that (other than it was unnecessary)? Does it make you wonder about Snopes a littel bit? Kudos by the way for posting this; it speaks well of you.

                    Have you ever lived in a minority community or policed one? If the answer to either question is "no" then may I suggest you go do a few ride alongs in a poorer area? (The ride-along would probably be easier to accomplish than moving.) Some actual life experience might be of assistance here, and who knows, give you some actual first hand experience.

                          The purpose of these sites should be to vet the specific claims to be true or not, not to add politically correct commentary at the end. The net result is it loses credibility in its primary purpose, as is evidenced by the participants in this thread.

                            It is always instructive to consider the source and it's motivations and context. It is very possible that they are more selective about what they choose, depending on bias. But that isn't even close to saying they flat out lie based upon political ideology as part of a broader ideological conspiracy, which seems to be the consensus view among the majority in this thread.

                            I've never seen anything to make me believe what they say isn't true.

                            I never suggested any of that. I only asked if it made you wonder a bit. Does this mean no?

                            It also doesn't mean that all hoodie wearing, strapped Black men are good either and the stop won't end well for the Cop, right?

                            See how that works. It would probably do you some good to broaden your narrow scope.....

                              Right.

                              They also should not debunk true stuff, usually by claiming it is only partially true, just bc they don't like that it is true.

                              That is all they are doing here. They just didn't want to get embarrassed and give it the partially true or true but really false label as they often do.
