    You do not understand the special privileges you receive in American society because of your race.  I am merely saying that were this kid treated the way a black kid would have been treated, those 7 people would still be alive.

      know Rodger's.  

      Your claim of negligence on the part of the Santa Barbara Police is careless and sloppy and unfair.

        to see how this professor of Black/African studies has been posting articles about this mass murderer constantly.

        She is fixated on this mass murder and shooting from the lip, based on her own uninformed "opinions" and prejudices.

        She managed to post a comment on Science blogger Emily Willingham's Forbes blog which equated a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder with a diagnosis of sociopathy.  When called out by me and Dr. Willingham about her wildly speculated prejudicial post, she did not defend her comment and she did not apologize to the autism community.

        Now she "opines" that Eliot Rodger was a closeted gay...because in her own twisted mind, closeted gays are prone to committing mass murders.

        Good grief.  Is there no end to Professor Hilliard's biased, prejudicial and ignorant comments?

      that the killer's rights would have been abused?

      Do you have any evidence that California cops disproportionately subject blacks to 5150 holds than whites?

      as a given, then, would a young black man's parents be as likely to alert the police in this situation? Or would they have second and third thoughts about doing that, about exposing their child to who-knows-what?

      I think you make simplifying assumptions that may not be valid.
