Unless your stance is the abolishment of law enforcement, you have to accept that they need these +1 powers to do their job effectively

This is complete bullshit. There are perfectly acceptable non-lethal responses to force that the police could use, i.e. tasers, mace, bean bag guns. And are you seriously stipulating that they could not do their jobs without being able to arbitrarily assault people who are not using force of any kind?

Point me to that please. There was that guy Dillon Taylor (who wasn't even white, he was hispanic) that every republican was yelling about like it nullifies Michael Brown, but beyond that I haven't seen any. At the same time, there were tons of unarmed black people killed by the police in my city alone. If white kids are getting killed, then sure that is a problem and we should also be concerned about it. Just like I was equally upset when Dillon Taylor was shot. But I don't see any evidence that it is prevalent to the degree that black people being shot is.
