* During the clip, a witness is heard warning Scurlock that the shooter has a gun, and yells 'it's not worth it'
* Locals claimed Scurlock was defending himself after the shooter taunted protesters by shouting 'n****r lover'

* Omaha announced a a curfew Sunday from 8pm for 72 hours. The National Guard will be working with the OPD

A Black Lives Matter demonstrator has been shot dead outside a bar in Omaha, Nebraska following a night of protests on Saturday.

Footage circulating on social media shows James Scurlock, 22 - who is black - being gunned down by a man - who is white - outside the Hive Bar.

In the video, a man in a gray shirt appears to be speaking with the victim, who is in a dark shirt and jeans.

The person recording the video is heard yelling that he has a gun and says 'it's not worth it'.

Seconds later two loud gunshots are heard and the videographer quickly ducks for cover. Scurlock was shot twice in the neck.

Police said they responded to the scene at approximately 11.01pm after officers reported hearing shots fired near 12th and Harney Street.

'Upon officers' arrival to the scene of 1207 Harney Street [the location of The Hive], they found a male suffering from a gunshot wound,' Omaha Police Department said in a statement. 'The male was transported to the Nebraska Medical Center where he succumbed to his injury.'

'The Omaha Police Department is not currently looking for any suspects,' OPD added. 'Investigators are in the process of reviewing all collected evidence, video, witness interviews and conferring with the Douglas County Attorney's office.'

Police initially said Saturday night that the suspect was at large but soon after they tweeted that the shooter was in custody.

On Sunday afternoon Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said the shooter was still detained but that any booking or 'charging decision on that front will come from the county attorney's office'.

Schmaderer added: 'And he tells me that will be accompanied by a press conference.'

OPD said no police officers were involved in the shooting.

Witnesses claim the shooter 'taunted' protesters and went out to the sidewalk yelling 'n****r lover'. From the video, it's unclear what happened before the shots were fired but witnesses claim Scurlock - who was with his brother - jumped on the shooter's back to stop him from using his weapon.

Loved ones of Scurlock have posted a GoFundMe page.

'James was passionate for Justice, but today his fight ended as he was shot and killed downtown Omaha while protesting for the same Justice he deserves,' the page creator writes.

'May you Rest In Peace James.'

The Omaha World-Herald said Scurlock's family was not ready to talk but would speak soon.

On Sunday afternoon, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert said that protest were peaceful but following the demonstrations groups started destroying businesses. Police said the majority of people arrested on Saturday were white.

According to witnesses, Scurlock was killed outside a business that had been damaged earlier in the night.

Omaha announced a a curfew Sunday from 8pm for 72 hours. The National Guard will be working with the OPD.

This is what happens when u decide to support Trump, when u go that route. You start killing civilians and will end up in jail where you risk being raped and beaten.

Literally 6% of the population ( black males) murder 50% of murder victims. Definitley punching above there wieght.

As a white person if I am to be murdered, I have about an 80-85% chance of being killed by a white person.

Which makes sense, almost all crimes committed are within the same race. Most likely due to two reasons people of the same race often congregate together, and 2nd familiarity, you know how the reapomse is and the area better. This is even true within ethnicities.

However, blacks in the US generally go after non blacks far more likely than other races go outside theres.

Which is why the chances of a white guy murdering a black guy is 2 to 3 times less likely than the reverse.

But in the media that is rarely reported, because that's not racist, the reverse is supposedly always racist and is more sensational and blacks tend to have more and larger riots.

Also. While it is true that cops stop blacks proportionately more, once you figure in victim. Descriptions of the assailants it is proportionate.

So its not so much that cops are focusing in racial bias but that cops are just overzealous to everyone, blacks just seem to get more offended by it.

"blacks just seem to get more offended by it."

Overzealousness by police against white people rarely lead to death. Black people are more offended by police overzealousness because they're fucking dying from it.

When was the last time you heard about a white person being recklessly murdered by police? That homeless woman who was collateral damage from a fucking retard who ran away from a dog shooting his gun?

"Overzealousness by police against white people rarely lead to death. "

As a matter of fact about twice as likely than blacks.

Blacks 200\yr

Whites 400/yr

I wouldn't call that rare.

Just because the media plays it up doesn't make it the case.

I know a handful of people who moved here from other nations and this is definitley one of the major perception vs reality moments they have. Also they think all Americans walk around openly with guns all.the.time.

Suicide is a MUCH larger issue.

As is black on white violent crime.Which is far more common than police killing blacks.

Local news stories are usually better (and more up to date) than national stories about these kinds of incidents, btw.

No, you're drawing a very bad conclusion.

http://en....ited_States#Race_and_ethnicity

200/40,000,000
vs:
400/230,000,000

Blacks are nearly 3x as likely to be murdered by police.


Also, if your statistic is simply # of dead by police, that will include all of the reasonable killings in the statistic. The issue is unreasonable murder. Admittedly, this is much harder to measure statistically. But even the measurable statistics say you're wrong.

Hood, Due to the smaller number of blacks, absolutely they are more likely to be killed. As for unjustly, that is a whole can of worms because, lets be honest that is in the eye of the beholder and also many times when The cops are found not guilty that doesn't necessarily mean he was not.

However when you claim " overzealous policing rarely leads to dead whites" at the very least id say poor wording. As policing does kill more whites than any race and twice as much ( raw numbers) than the next highest.

Blacks tend to be more centered in the city. Philly for example is abput 45% black. So neighborhoods do matter and the proportions are even more skewed in the cities against blacks as in rural America even proportionately your more likely to be killed by a cop if your white.

So this leads to a higher ratio of blacks killed per 1000 blacks in a given city. Then since its prominent locally Id think more people would know some or know someone who knew someone. In that aspect it makes it feel like a more prominent threat and more difficult to compartmentalize.

Couple that with media/political portrayal and you have a perfect storm.

Not to mention humans in general are terrible at risk assessment.Things that are visually horrifying and more tangible are perceived as worse.

Which is why things like shark culling still exists and yet no one is protesting for more security aroumd swimming pools or on how we eat mozzarella which kill many more people.

Ipeople.I did forget to mention as well that blacks im general are more violent and criminal. For whatever reason. The cops mass* racial bias disappears when you compare it to how much more frequently the peeps happen to be black.

Now as for deaths, Well it is likely effected by this as well, but I havnt compared those stats.

All in all cops need to stop killing everyone. Black lives matter, but no more than anyone else's. It shpuld.be all lives matter. The cause would probably get more traction outside of the Democratic party.

"Blacks are nearly 3x as likely to be murdered by police."

Yet they commit 10x as much violent crime.

So they really are getting shot at 3x lower rate than whites, on a per crime basis.

Violent crime is good anyways as long as the victim has it coming and they die quick. Good population control.

White collar crimes are the worst because they hit my pocketbook.

You guys should be happy with blacks killing each other and upset that rich white men get away with massive amounts of theft.

But it's the reverse.

We've been through this before. Blacks have a higher incidence race with the police because they have a much higher incident rate when it comes to committing violent crime.

"Blacks have a higher incidence race with the police because they have a much higher incident rate when it comes to committing violent crime."

They're also more likely to live in urban centers, where proactive policing and initiation of interactions is the norm.

You're likely to find that these numbers drop drastically in suburban and rural areas.

Gotta love the retard coming in all sanctimonious with a statistic that has already been covered with an explanation why raw #s is an invalid metric.


"Blacks have a higher incidence race with the police because they have a much higher incident rate when it comes to committing violent crime."

And if that incident rate was only occurring with criminals in the act of being violent, it would be justified. Simply arguing that black people in general commit more crime, therefore all black people are open season for state sanctioned murder is fucking atrocious. But it's very clear that law abiding citizens who are not in any way acting violently are being trampled by the police, simply because people with the same color skin do some bad things. That's bullshit.

You only hear about the ones that end in death. Those are rare. I'd bet that abuse that doesn't end in death is quite common.

I had never heard of Crash... doesn't seem like my kind of movie. Though I do like Sandra Bullock.

No there's plenty of different reasons to think this, actually.

There's the fact that you have to realise that these guys who sit on someone's neck until the person actually fucking dies, very most likely didn't sit on their first neck that day and have far more likely been getting away with this kind of fucked up shit for their entire careers. Which also means a lot of people either agreed with the practice, either didn't care enough or felt too powerless to try and do anything about it. Just thinking of that makes you realise there's a real problem.

Then there's just simply the rich history and tradition of both racism and violence in your country, of course. And the rampant racism I see expressed by Americans on these here forums on a regular basis make it very obvious that this is still a huge problem out there as well.

Then there's just personal experiences here... while things are luckily way less violent in general here in Belgium, I know for a fact cops discriminate against foreigners here, both from personal experience (though we're talking at least a decade and longer ago for those) as from knowing people who work on the force.

Then there's just knowing human nature and what people who get some power over others tend to be like. Ignore how woefully unfit he is for a moment and imagine Sammy in a police uniform... you think he's gonna give the black kid fair treatment? And you just know there's plenty of sad Sammies in uniform out there.

And then there is just listening to the victims, of course... seems highly unlikely that they're all making this up.

So yeah... given everything I know about the US and this particular problem, I think it would be much more surprising if there wasn't a bunch of racist police brutality going on than if there was.

I've read on different social media sites of a number of attacks by police on citizens and somewhere in the post they blame racism. In the majority of the stories posted if you go read the actual article the officer was of the same race as the citizen. Race is being blamed because it is an easy out. Instead of looking at the real problem we like to shout racist.

The rampant limp wristed eu approach to crime espoused by you and certain other whiners is a much bigger problem. Imagine going to law abiding blacks and telling them they have to live in a neighborhood of criminals because it is racist to remove these criminals.

And then imagine the retarded euro mind that thinks this is helping.

I remember talking to an Australian who was going on about how terrible it is with the racism against blacks in the US. But the same guy would talk shit about the "abbos" with tge excuse " Yeah but you dont know how they are"

I'm goos friends with a Hungarian I used to work with who now lives here but would tell me.horror stories about how the gypsies acted.

All due respect to Nekran, he lives in a country that is like 97% white. Ive lived in Frankfurt N. Philly where its probably 50/50 and seen first hand " white privelege"

It exists , as does black privilege. It depends who you are, where and when and who else is there.

Its also is as much about culture as it is race.

You have supported left wing pro-crime soft punishments for the last decade.

Stop lieing to yourself nekran.

Dont get me wrong, there are some left-wing policies that reduce crime... abortion and education funding for all.

The ideal world be a blend of logical policies: education and abortion to create a better base of citizens, and harsh punishment to remove those criminals that persist.
