    Standing on the front steps of First Congregational Church of Oakland late last month, Nichola Torbett issued a declaration. "We can no longer tolerate the trauma inflicted on our communities by policing," Torbett, a white church volunteer, said in front of churchgoers who held photos of African Americans shot dead by law enforcement. The church, she promised, would never call the cops again in nearly every circumstance. Dozens of members had agreed to do the same. "How do police help? They often don't," Torbett later said in an interview. "So, especially as white people, why call them?"

A sampling from the Baltimore County Police & Fire Facebook page: "I was hoping they'd kill him during apprehension. What a waste of life. He's currently breathing air some decent person could be breathing." "I personally am tired of...
