Comment: So sad

So sad

I'm glad that there's finally something resembling retribution, but I wish people would get this outraged for the people murdered by the cops in cold blood. It's a sad comment on our society when it takes a dog dying SLOWLY to incite outrage. Dog die, and people are murdered for looking at the cop the wrong way, but because this one died so slowly and painfully, all on video, that its own owner had to put an end to its misery, it moves people to violence?

People aren't mad because it's wrong. They're mad because it's novel; they're not used to hearing something die slowly. If the dog die immediately, or if the man was killed instead, this cop would still have his job.

I feel discouraged by the states of the sense of right and wrong in this country.
