So he was having a good time doing a boring chore..... Ya lets shoot him, total danger to society.




I bet the police gave him a chance to drop his "weapon" before they opened fire


You still think he had a weapon.... he was watering his lawn, and his neighbors THOUGHT he had a gun.

I thought this seemed familiar. I'm pretty sure this was already posted on ATS.

Sir! Place the waterhose on the ground and take 2 steps back so that I don't fear for my safety that I myself walked into. Water is dangerous.

Why do you think I used quotes?

Of course he didn't have a weapon.

(wow.)

No.

I'm saying someone called the police.

Do you think a cop drove by, saw the guy watering his lawn, called in back up then shot the guy twelve times?

Why because he was using too much water?!?

There was a reason.

Period.




If there had been a legitimate reason, you can be sure the victims family would not have been awarded millions of dollars and the Msm would have made sure to print those reasons regardless.

And yet we have a huge group of people in this country that think that giving goons like these cops a monopoly on firearms is a good idea.

I do NOT trust cops. Never will.

As a uniformed soldier I don't even trust the MPs on base.

The kind of mentality it takes to be a cop these days is scary to me.
How they train cops is scary to me. My biggest fear is that one day
one of these morons with a badge is going to try to hurt me or my
family. And on that day I will either be dead or in prison.

This is great! Next time I am in America, and some guy on his front lawn pisses me off, I shall call the cops and act like I saw a gun and fearful for my life.

Sit back, watch as the guy gets pwned by cops with the IQ of a cabbage.

Great way to clean up the neighbourhood.


I walk, the cops walk, bad neighbour carried out.

Great way to get away with murder, by getting the stupid cops to do it for you, they're much better at covering it up than I would be



Victim: GET OF MY LAWN!
Me: O RLY!

Hmm.... So if i wanted someone "taken care of" but am to poor to hire a hitman this would be a good second choice. Why do something that costs $10,000+ when the tax payers can do it for you!


God Bless Merica.

Not long ago there was an issue with online hackers and others doing what is called "SWATING". It's when someone makes a frantic call to the police describing a situation that will defintiely get the SWAT team called to your house.

People were doing it to political figures they didn't like I believe.

This reads to me that the cops gave this man a chance to drop what they considered a "weapon" ( see I know what they mean :cheers
before opening fire

Are you ok with cops having that type of mentality? That they can assume anything in some one's hand is a "weapon"?

More evidence that police examinations should include intelligence testing with full psych evaluations every 6 months or so.

Same for teachers I think. Which means raising the budgets. lol.

All I can say is I'm sorry I voiced my opinion.

In the future I will follow the flock and behave as a mindless drone.

In your ultimate wisdom the members of ATS have convinced me that all police and every section of all the governments of the world are evil entities.

I thank you.

There was a time I held my own beliefs and thought for myself. It is so much easier to "go with the flow".

Of course not but if you're holding a hose nozzle, a flashlight, a pen, a baby, or a puppy and a cop tells you to drop it while he points a pistol at you then you drop it.

I don't believe police are evil. I have friends on a few different police forces. But if you Are confronted with armed goons and if you do not defend yourself you or your loved onesi may likely die What would you do?

And if I don't they can shoot me...??
Why? What immediate danger would I pose to them with anything you just listed?
Cause at the end of the day it is me that is the weapon and what ever is in my hand is just an extension of me.

The man was not under arrest, he didn't need to drop a thing. He didn't even need to talk to the cops

A few things.

First, I thought this was fake. I immediately scrolled to the bottom to read their "satire" disclaimer. But it wasn't there. This is real news! This really happened!

Two, of course the Police Chief thinks they're innocent. I was not surprised at all to hear they were cleared in an internal investigation. Bravo for the members of the jury in standing up to this behavior and setting limits on their employees' behavior.

Third. "Honey, I can't water the lawn because the police will shoot me!"

You know there is such thing as middle ground and calling bad cops what they are...bad cops.
These were bad cops, there are other like them.
I met 3 good cops the other night, they even apologized for taking so long to get to the call
Workers at a nursery down the street got drunk and got in a fight, guess it got ugly, one of them came over to our house since he had no phone


See.. Middle ground

Unfortunately - if you'd bothered to read up on this - they didn't shout anything at all. Not even a "Police!" They just blew this poor sap away.
