Philando Castile: even when a black dude plays by all the rules, he can still be shot down in cold blood by the police

Just after the weekend we had a very Canadian debate about whether or not Black Lives Matter were "bullies" for stopping the Toronto Pride Parade for half an hour.

After all, you can't possibly have a debate about human rights without going through the proper channels. That is quintessentially Canadian.

Maggie Wente and others went out of their way to spell out how BLM were a bunch of bullies and so forth.

Alton Sterling was murdered in Baton Rouge on Tuesday.

We were hardly into digesting that news morsel when Philando Castile was gunned down in Minnesota.

I'm with Wente in proclaiming that Toronto is not a racist hell-hole.

But neither is Minnesota.

I think it's beyond high time to look at policing in America.

And here.
