Exactly. Witness the absolute outrage by the white cops in NYC behind the firing — the firing only— of killer cop Panteleo. Those guys don’t even try to hide their anger, disgust and frustration at the fact that they may no longer kill black people (or anybody else, for that matter) with complete and total impunity and immunity.

How do you think they would have reacted had their boy actually been prosecuted and imprisoned for such an obvious murder? (Hint: we’d probably have seen a genuine, actual, violent “police riot,” with NYPD cracking heads and busting people — especially black people — for “crimes” like “reckless eyeballing” them). Amazing.
