As he should be, that's as wrong as wrong gets right there. That guy has no business wearing a badge. Jumpsuit orange will fit him wonderfully.

How bout watching the video before making such a stupid comment. You can't gun down someone in cold blood who is clearly running away from you. And then throw the tazer down at his body. Come on man.

As usual, the video only show part of what happened.

That looks horrible. So, what happened just before the video? Looks like there was some sort of issue.

Well this case it's quite justified. I always side with the cops but not this time.

You sure are an obedient little soldier. Me? I'm an independent thinker.

One thing is for certain - "Unarmed Black Motorist" will be the description of the deceased and "White Police Officer" will describe the cop in every media outlet between Mercury and Pluto, regardless of whether or not evidence of racial bias on the part of the cop contributed to the shooting.

Our Divider in Chief wouldn't have it any other way.

And a dumb thinker at that if you think that's a justified shooting.

How does an independent thinker such as yourself see the threat to the officer in this case?

What, a war on police - not in this instance - There was absolutely no reason for that cop to shot that man. The cop said he felt threatened and subsequently fired EIGHT rounds at a man RUNNING AWAY.

He should have run the guy down. There was nothing in the dead man's hands. They said they performed CPR - another lie. Appears to me that you can't believe anything these cops say about the incident.

That was murder, plain and simple. That man shouldn't have been wearing a badge - ever. And deserves what he gets. I agree with the mayor's comments.

Um, how else would you describe the two people involved??

Motorist and Police Officer?

ETA: or Unarmed Motorist and Police Officer. My point is, if race isn't an obvious contributor, why is it always in the press when the cop is white and the person shot is black? Why don't they say "Blue Shirt Wearing Motorist"? It's equally as relevant until evidence proves otherwise.

If you're suggesting I'm racist, my black friends and co-workers would suggest otherwise.

I thought there would be other threads about this:

I just wish we had video of the "before".

No, not at all. But you'd rather not hear the details. Stick with Fox News as perhaps they will provide the reporting you want to hear.

American people have had enough of these marginal use of force situations and this is way beyond marginal. I am talking about conservative law abiding people that are saying this is crap. Times have changed. I have no doubt that if there was not a video it would have went down as a good shoot.
