    Out of all the men shooting black people, they charge the one woman who does it.

    Lol, I was about to say the same thing !

    yes, I get that it's shocking that from all the officers being prosecuted, very few (nearly no) males get prosecuted, but the female police officer did.
    However, I think it should be less about the gender of the police officer, and the fact that there seems to be some justice when it comes to police brutality (for all races to be honest)

    Oh, I am not one of those saying there is no police brutality and they are just doing their job or whatever.

    But I do find it fitting that the system provides support to most males but when it's a woman, oh well she probably freaked out didn't she.

    I get that, but at least one was prosecuted, and hopefully more justice in the future...

    I suppose.

    When reading that at first I was like cool finally someone charged, and then I saw it was a woman and had a bitter after taste. Ofc I am not saying she shouldn't be prosecuted, just it feels another broken kog in the system.
