He went to predominately white schools through his education process.The incarceration of a family friend lead him to abuse authority. His mom and dad were killed in a random drive by shooting, which he seen committed by a group of dread head ,dark skinned, dressed in all ashy-black baggy clothes,listening to loud rap music with a drug odor coming from the car(characteristics of suspects).

Most officers use force in response to what they perceive as a threat. EX: If a an alfa wolf sees another alfa wolf in the forest it will not get scared ,maybe if it sees a lion. If a white officer that never had any interactions with a black man now is stuck working in the neighborhood how could he possibly know if the "dice game thugs" are being hostile, disrespectful or could care less.

Kelly Thomas was homeless man with schizophrenia that was beaten unrecognizable and died five days later.
