The chief indicated he has personally viewed the footage, but would not comment on whether he believed the shooting was justified. Read more at www.wnd.com...

You can try and compare but to do that is a disservice to the discussion. African Americans get treated very differently by the police. I have had a case where being pulled over by the police and with me being the driver, my Black friend was hassled and nearly arrested for no other discernible reason other than the color of his skin. He wasn't belligerent, dressed "thuggish" or anything like that, yet they raked him over the coals. It was quite the eye opener. He took it a lot better than I would have in his situation.
Police in Salt Lake City are continuing their probe into an Aug. 11 shooting outside a 7-Eleven convenience store, when a black police officer, whom local media are referring to as “not white,” shot and killed 20-year-old Dillon Taylor, who was unarmed at the time, according to his supporters. Police Chief Chris Burbank said the entire incident was captured on the body camera of the officer who shot Taylor. “You will see on camera … the actions of everyone involved, including up to the point where our officer utilizes deadly force and his response thereafter,” Burbank told reporters. He said the video, along with the officer’s identity, will be released at the “appropriate” time, adding it could be days, weeks or months. Read more at www.wnd.com...
“There’s a mindset out there, and the way it works in situations like this [is] only people of color can be victims. A white person can never be a victim. It just can’t happen. That’s not permitted, that’s not allowed because it isn’t the case. The whites are the oppressors. They’re the majority. In the liberal worldview, every majority is an oppressor, whether they’re white or whatever. They’re all oppressors. The minority is always the victims, and the victims are with whom we should always sympathize, no matter what. And the victims are permitted to do anything precisely because they’re a minority, and I’m talking about in numbers, not skin color. They’re outnumbered. The evil majority does horrible things to the minority. And so the minorities, be it skin color or numbers … [are] always victims. And so anything they do is justified and we must try to understand the rage. “But in the current climate in the United States, a black person can never be the oppressor and a white can never be the victim. And that’s how you have a corrupt or perverted news business in Salt Lake City, refusing to identify a black cop who may have shot an innocent person. That destroys the whole picture we’ve been creating here for centuries. That could totally destroy the image that we’ve been trying to concoct. Oh man that could blow it sky high; that’s just not supposed to happen. And so they come up with these things to hide it or to not reference it at all.” Taylor’s aunt, Gina Thayne, told the Deseret News that police know they “killed an innocent kid.” “If in fact they actually produce a tape, it will show exactly what happened,” Thayne said. “It will come out eventually. It will never bring Dillon back, though.” Read more at www.wnd.com...

You're welcome and thank you for your thoughts. It is a divide and conquer deal they're pulling on us. CNN especially. Every time they cover a story non stop, you know they're working on an agenda. Do you know theatreboy? He tipped me off to this. If you'd like I'll hand this thread off to you after you've got your twenty posts? I'm not a good typist and getting gang attacked might get brutal. I can take abuse but the pace I might not be able to keep up with them. They're probably organizing right now, lol.

"if people DONT bend to their every whim"
im a victim of wasn't's turning into was's and missing don't's too.
it really has to be hard for cops tho considering the situation they are in.
guys like this ruin it for everyone else
I guess that is why Cadillac doesn't make the "Catera's" anymore, because lots of want to be thugs drive them and then shoot at cops when they get pulled over. That is a Catera, easy to spot even in a somewhat grainy video. I guess if you are a want to be thug and dont have the $$$$ then a cheap used Catera would be the car for you! It's the Caddy that Zigs!
What a piece of trash that perp was...
i know that 90%+ of the population wouldnt ever do what the guy in this video did but cops deal with people all the time and have heard horror story after horror story and personally probably all know at least one widow from the job. gotta make for some tension..
not trying to justify any of this just saying.. a cop should know this is the name of the game going into it and be ready to flip that switch into judge dread mode from barney fief mode.. its really gotta be hard.
