    He had NINE children. Two by his current GF who is pregnant and going to be labor induced next week for the third bastard child just by this one man. That would have been TEN kids,

    Those people would screw their eyes shut and plug their ears, yelling "LA LA LA LA LA LA LA" the whole time.

    Democrats have to keep expanding their voter base in many, many ways.

    Let's be honest, no one wants to remember a family member as a thieving, lying, philandering scumbag.

    But that's what he was.

    He had nine kids. Who paid to feed them all the times he was locked up?
    In the end, it doesn't matter that he suffered from mental illness, he was an imminent danger to those officers, the reason behind it no longer matters.

    Police by allowing this will make it continue . Dead rioters is the only thing that will stop this . Police are afraid to react with force.

    I see a number of felonies listed... whatever happened to strike 3 count?
    Either way, seems to me the gene pool has been improved.

    Rumor is he was on his way to Los Alamos to work on nuclear fusion (he was one of America's best nuclear scientists) when police shoved a knife into his hand and wrongly shot him.
    Such a shame. He had so much promise ahead of him.

    No, the police are not afraid to react with force. Those in the administrative positions are afraid to react with force. I am fairly certain the the street cops would have been more than willing to open several cans of whoop ass on the rioters.

    Care to post some photos of yourself on the frontlines of a riot?

    We work for the people you elect and abide by the laws your politicians set out. Go blame them and then look in the mirror.

    His record is irrelevant to the issue, as is his mental health issues.

    Honest hardworking people can have mental breakdowns and become violent, and felons are entitled to be taken into custody without injury if they cooperate.

    Wave a knife around and charge police, or anyone for that matter, and you can get shot and possibly killed.

    The only relevance his record has is it makes me glad it turned out to be a criminal that had the mental issue and got himself killed, no great loss to society in general. Still a shame he had to die, just with a small “s” instead of a capital “s”.

    Gotta love the talking heads on TV carrying on about how he was mentally ill, as if that meant he was harmless when in fact it made him even more dangerous.

    The mentally ill are not only unpredictable and can seldom be reasoned with but are notoriously difficult to overpower or otherwise bring under control.

    The violent mentally ill are the most dangerous of all to deal with.

    The arrest record doesn’t matter. Haven’t you figured out that as a cop you had better die in the line of duty before your shoot a black suspect. Welcome to the new merica!!

    Ten kids well looks like we will have ten more mentally defectives to worry about in future as i am sure they will be brought up to honor what daddy did and follow in his footsteps.

    Was not mentally handicapped to pull out the wang and find the tang was he....Every one of these stories are just plain Propaganda to make us shed a tear.But the real innocents that get gunned down daily Black White Mexican Asian nobody cares at all.

    Probably the most sickening part of this entire episode is watching one of his kids grinning in front of the camera before he talked about the "racist white cops" killing his daddy and how black lives still matter. It sounded like he was reading from a prepared statement.

    How much do you want to bet all his baby mamas are already picking out cars and houses they will buy with their lottery winnings.....uh , I mean settlement money.

    So, from now on, anytime some criminal gets himself shot there will be a riot?
    Criminals will continue to get themselves shot; it's what they do.
    Glad I don't have a store in a downtown, or work at one, or depend on one.

    *I haven't seen the official police report of the incident - but until then I just love how the Wallace camp paraded the kids out in front of the media with well coached anti - police phrases now looking to make a dollar. I truly feel for the kids losing a parent - conversely , there needs to be sit down education with these same kids regarding one's own life choices and the negative consequences that begin to stack up if you choose unwisely . *I'll begin with the first phrase I heard growing up as a teen from my own parents : "Nothing good happens after midnight - best get your butt home before then " !
