I think you are confusing cause and effect.

Go along quietly like a good boy and then maybe you won't get killed

The fact that you can't see why resisting arrest is a bad idea really speaks to how backwards your thinking is.


No my friend if he felt like his life or anything was in danger then he has the right to resist in my thinking and as it turned out his life was ended


Which individual? last I saw there were 2 individuals and one officer.

Secondly - what's does the law say? Specifically California?

I ask because, aside from Indiana and specific incidents, individuals are not allowed by law to resist, regardless if we think the law was violated by the police. That law exists to prevent a confrontation with law enforcement and is based on the facts that -
A - law enforcement is not a part of the judicial branch and
B - the determination on charges is solely reserved to the judicial branch.

Other things to consider -
A - use of deadly force does not require a weapon.
B - multiple suspects and 1 officer can be deadly force.
C - aside from the physical encounter verbal statements by the suspect are considered.
D - other civilians present are a consideration.

Other info being reported \ conflicting info must be checked, by both sides.
The SCOTUS ruling on officer use of deadly force must be reviewed in the context of what did the officer perceive at the moment of deadly force. Hindsight cannot be a factor.
In addition to LAPD conducting an IA / criminal investigation into the actions of all parties, the LA county prosecuting attorneys office is investigation as well.

Lets see what turns up and go from there.

Looks like a clear invitation to the dance...
Seems like events are being scaled to push plans forward faster than expected...
Beware...
Many will disagree but I believe its time to make a stand...
I believe def leppard says it well... "Rise up!!! gather round!!! rock this place to the ground!!!"
Will it be you the people?
Or a whole new slavery that is not predjudiced of the color of your skin...
Its for a new world order see...

“conducted an investigative stop” ..... code for looking suspicious with no PROBABLE cause to be stopped in the first place.

I like all the defenders here saying "he was resisting arrest"!!

Arrested for what in the first place? Shills trying to put into ppls heads that going straight to lethal force is legit in cases where someone is belligerent and resisting fake charges and so on. Like we're going to accept that.

What do you call forming an opinion before all the facts are known?

Please learn the difference between probable cause and reasonable suspicion and how they both are used in law enforcement. It might help people actually learn rather than make uninformed accusations with no bearing in reality.

When people complain about tazers its usually when someone has been tazered whilst in cuffs or multiple times..etc, basically people are pissed that its used as punishment..not with its proper deployment.

Which is nice but has nothing to do with knowing the difference between RS and PC.
