The more interesting angle is how some groups are allowed a collective identity and others are not.
I can’t help but be reminded a bit of the lecturing on white mob violence of the 19th and early 20th century when an accusation of rape was lodged at a black man. More we are told so than not, the facts of the case were never heard and an innocent life was taken. The evil, we are told, was a collective identity ready to defend the group regardless of facts and rational discourse.
Now notice the aforementioned pattern playing out today, a shooting takes place and the facts of a case aren’t mentioned, the response is a collective action against the civil authorities. Yet one group is taught to think individually, to do otherwise is racism while the other group is allowed the idea that an attack on one is an attack on all.
Also notice the slow creep up in violent crime the last several years. The slow indicators are out there that the police will not fulfill their duties for fear of lawsuits and cries of racism.
