    Video shows suspect point something at pursuing officers (foot pursuit) and get shot. Started off as a DUI and
    Suspect is black, unknown race on officer. Chief resigns ( from what I hear, no big loss) and Mayor takes billy pulpit to call for officer’s firing because she doesn’t think deadly force was justified.
    Video at link. He appears to have the taser in his hand and fires first. Let me know what you think.

    Do facts really even matter any more? We all know how this will go...

    Yeah, if anyone knows whether justification exists for the use of deadly force, it’s a politician for sure.

    For God’s sake. Folks are crying for banning Police Unions and this is the REASON they are so badly needed.

    Speaking of that, where the hell is the AFL-CIO in the middle of all this union bashing?

    Personally, I’ve never been a fan of employee unions EXCEPT where cops are concerned. Mainly because unlike most of us who have protections under the law, the decks are always stacked against cops.

    As for Atlanta burning....The mayor all but assured that when she declared the cop guilty in the absence of an investigation.

    Stupidity begets stupidity!

    I dunno. Honestly, I have kinda lost interest. Having been to ATL last year, I wouldn't consider it a great loss. I'm just waiting for the mayors, city mgrs., and the Governors to get off their butt and do something. I might be waiting awhile. It doesn't want to be discussed and it leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth but what needs to happen is citizens need to start killing the rioters, Antifa, and BLM. After that madness, some in Congress need to be forcibly removed. I see that as the quickest way to solve the problem with the least amount of innocent lives lost but again, that ain't too popular.

    No kidding. Sherman and his men didn't get nearly as many Sony Bravias and Air Jordans as these folks will get.

    Yes
    All because some raciss cops pulled a dude out of his car and straight up shot him dead.
    Just because he was black, no other reason.
    He wasn't doin nuthin either, just catching some Z's from working a long shift at the children's hospital.

    Right? That's what I read on CNN, or Vox..etc

    "He was just getting his life on track"

    "He complied"

    "He was trying to get away"

    "All he wanted was a Pepsi"

    "He was known as a gentle giant"

    Have I missed any?

    One good point is Governor Kemp, he seem like he’s the no nonsense type. If the mayor doesn’t get the city calmed down after tonite he will. It seems out of state agitators take hold the 2nd or 3rd day of a riot. S hopefully the National Guard is activated and mans the perimeter. While the police take control.

    100% rock solid good shoot in ND. Fleeing the scene of a felony involving violence, possession of a weapon, attempt to use said weapon on pursuing officers.

    Oh and they have to stop and get out and film. That’s completely justified. The officer has his taser out and when the suspect points his stolen taser at the officer he drops his taser, pulls his weapon, and fires. Then he immediately holsters.

    You know, I wonder if this was wait for it....staged. He had a taser in his hand and still shot the guy? It’s almost as if this was pushed to happen. Things were just starting to calm down. Why is it these things always happen in democrat run cities.
