the regular cooking ad that this channel has is disgusting and sad. I'm hearing reports about the abuse of police force against black Americans and how busing change our country but the ads involve abuse of the powerful over the voiceless. the contrast is shocking! could you just get an ad that does not include pork-chops?

Before I say anything, let me say that, I am aware that not every officer means to kill. They are humans too. Sometimes things just happen. However, Racially motivated or not, there should be actual consequences when police make a bad call. Especially if it ends in the taking of a life. Police officers, although still human, get training to handle situations better than the average civilian. That being said they should be held responsible when they go against that training.
