Blaming Victims Is Unfair

I must take exception to Mr. Dashiell’s letter stating that the people shot by police are “resisting arrest.” I assume he means black men.
Why? Just look at the list of white men captured after mass murders. Peaceful arrest.
Now look at the list of unarmed black men shot in the back ... up to seven times … for minor infractions.
There is no other conclusion to reach other than the obvious and the rational: systematic racism. Pure and simple.
Blaming the victims is unfair and unproductive. Only by facing the problem and addressing it comprehensively will the problem be solve...
