Sorry what are you referring to? I thought was answering
an equine question.

Cheers

Even if he did, after the first shot and the kid turns and runs, what justification does he know have to shoot?
How is he still in fear for his life when someone is fleeing from him?
I know this is asking to much from a cop in a situation like this, sarcasm, but couldn't he then switch to tazer and subdue him non- lethally?
Or does he have to shoot him cause, for the sake of argument, he made a reach for the gun initially?

And I just hit reply to your post but these questions are not necessarily directed at you, feel free to answer but I don't mean to seem like i am going at you

They're not immune to ball bearings(old IRA trick)and the secret to breaking the phalanx is attack the gaps/folds luckily for these cops the protesters aren't experienced


And how are the protesters supposed to not roll their feet on the same ball bearings? Is it everyone one their backsides and run over the bodies type of terrorist tactic? What do you think the cops will do if their lines are breached? You sound like you just want billy clubs flying.

Just a note but the #NMOS14 (National Moment of Silence) on Twitter is for vigils around multiple cities in the US for Michael Brown and Ferguson.
twitter.com...


Yeah, thats what I posted back on page 57. Actually, according to their facebook page it's for all victims of police brutality. I'm glad it's happening... I hope it continues and gains momentum.


Hee hee, it got buried but it's happening now so lots of tweets are coming through on twitter with pics. I wanted to post a vine that was kind of cool but alas, I don't know how to embed one in a post. Pretty cool.

In my mind, no justification whatsoever. If someone is running away, they are no threat anymore.

Is the coroners report out to see what drugs the kid was on?


How would that be any way relevant? Is there a law that says cops are allowed to shoot and kill people who are high?


In the presser today with the Police Chief. He specifically said they were waiting for the toxicology report.

You are right, it has no bearing on this case.

I read earlier, i wish i could remember where, that most of the rioters and looters weren't even from the area.

You're totally right, and ironically enough it's the police department's job to separate that demographic from the rest of the protest. Not to generalize the entire protest with an indifferent police response.

For what it's worth folks? It looks like it's over out there.

It's too soon to say for sure, but the block party it's become for citizens, police and commanders (not an armored vest or ar-15 in sight!) and media give the tone of a very definite change in how everyone feels. A clear sense of before / after from what I'm seeing on MSNBC and others with reporters out there and running live among the crowd.

Just maybe... (crosses paws) ... this phase can end here, with no one else hurt and nothing else done. Then it's on to the phase of accountability in figuring out just what the heck happened this week?

They could have handled the people who were responsible for the looting and violence without turning their weapons on the peaceful majority.

The actions of the violent does not remove the rights of the peaceful.


a reply to: xDeadcowx

How do you tell the difference? Should they not be prepared to react quickly and limit any outbreak of violence swiftly or should they wait until it is too late?

Wasnt some guy recently found guilty of murder for shooting someone in the back after he confronted them for breaking into his house?
Why shouldnt LEO's be held to the same scrutiny?

Easier said than done though I think. Are you gonna go into a huge crowd of people and attempt an arrest? Who is to say the crowd won't turn on you for it and curb stomp you into hell for just trying to do your job. The last protest I was at, people started getting stupid and throwing things, and us in the crowd grabbed the idiots and dragged them to the police to arrest.

Right, but then again you've admitted in this very thread that you're racist against black people (Are Asians and Jews okay, or is this a neo-nazi white power sort of thing?), so I think it's safe to say that your opinion is going to be very biased and morally compromised.


If you're white and don't think the majority of poor black people in this country would jump at the chance to string you up from a tree, then I challenge you to put on a hardhat and safety vest and take a stroll through the hood one day.

Make sure you're on your best behavior and wearing your biggest smile for maximum effect.


Well, I'm actually ethnically Spanish, but I can easily pass for white if I want to, what with my light skin and green eyes. I hang out in LA pretty frequently and actually spent a lot of time growing up in what I suppose you would term as "The hood"; while it can get dicey in areas, it's not like there's some black dude waiting at the Oakland city limit waiting to stab all white people that enter.

Your statement is really just blatant hyperbole and only serves to reinforce other's perception of you as a bigot.

Agreed, but do we know for a FACT that is what happened?

Nope, that is why I am hoping some camera somewhere caught it. I am still pissed to hear there is no cameras on the cop cars.....
Autopsy should tell the story a bit though, they can tell if a bullet went into the back or into the front for example.

True. I heard that it all happened off camera, but that may just be a convenient story. We just don't know. Hopefully we will know the truth eventually so we can appropriately respond to the facts.

I found this Twitter image quite profound. Just when the scene on the ground in Ferguson is looking safe for people to assemble, this photo reminded me how far we have not come.

When history looks like just yesterday, there is a long, long, long way to go.
