Can You Tell The Difference?

To add perspective; this cartoon was made in 2005...
Can you tell a difference between the two? It is getting more and more difficult everyday. Case in point; is the recent shooting of Jose Guerena. If you don't recognize the name, you should. By far the blog with the most comprehensive commentary is Walls of the City: The Killing of Jose Guerena. Please take the time to read it.

Below is footage of the "raid" and subsequent shooting captured on a officer's helmet cam:

"We’re rapidly heading for a world in which the whole wolves/sheep/sheepdogs = bad guys/innocents/good guys paradigm breaks down.
Instead, cops are properly now seen by civilians as threats. They have the capacity to kill you, and sometimes do. Threat does not = sheepdog. Threat = wolf."
I couldn't agree more... I think I need more ammunition. Just say'n...

  1. While I appreciate the linkage, I am not sure I would go so far as to describe my post as "commentary" - mostly I found other people who wrote significantly better (and significantly less expletive-laced) posts than I could ever hope to, and copied the choice parts...

    However, anything that gets the news out is good in my book, so link away - this story needs to get emblazoned into every Americans' mind.
