J.J. Johnson of the Sierra Times writes about police shootings & what race may or may not have to do with it.

"East Chattanooga, Tennessee - What we find most interesting about Whack & Stack is how readers perceive the attitude of the author once the victim's race is mentioned. You either have to be biased against blacks or whites in order to even report on the latest state-sponsored execution. That is not the case, and we felt it best to warn you before reading this next one. When it comes to this lethal trade - race actually does matter. Read on."

Indeed read on. A very interesting take on the justifications for police shootings & the effects of such to the community.
