Whether he was armed or not, this is at boiling point. I don't even live over there and I can feel it bubbling away like crazy. This is an insane way to go into the new year. Do you honestly see this getting better for next year? By the looks of it, its only getting worse and ramping up.

By it, I mean the clash and divide between the police and people. All this media coverage about the militarised police recently.. everything added up just doesn't paint a good picture in my head. Right near Christmas and New years as well.. as if emotions aren't already running rampant enough.

Maybe I'm just overreacting but I've got a very bad feeling about all this!

a reply to: TechUnique According to his Mom he was a good young man trying to get his life together after a few misunderstood armed robberies and such. He didn't have a gun, of course, and was just another innocent victim who happened to be there when someone called the police about a larceny.

I have a feeling 2015 is going to be a long and deadly year.

Hope I'm wrong!

It's going to be bad both in the USA and in the UK. Just bad all around the world really. I've always had a feeling that it would be around 2014-2015 that stuff really ramped up. Look at the year we just had, its been crazy.

I want to see "the gun" to see if its a "replica" firearm or BB gun. It would feed more to a "throw down" scenario and support witness "statements" that he wasn't in fact "armed", except postmortem.

Did you see that story about NYPD claiming that criminals are painting real firearms to look like toy guns? Maybe its true in some cases but the article was fishy as hell.

So true.......

More clashes huh? Black teen shot when he pulled a gun on a police officer, and thats causing MORE riots?

Just another example of how disingenuous these protests are......

They arent protesting for whats right, they are using it as an excuse to get VIOLENT......

See this for what it is people.......

If this were all in the name of truth then people wouldnt be up in arms about this.......

Do you remember the thread where the NYPD was caught smuggling firearms and some of those were "replicas"? its here somewhere. I postulated those replicas were vetted to be used as a "throw down" in car of accidental shooting to blame the victim for having a gun. They use replicas because they are inoperable but look exactly like the real thing.

Lead balloon status. Waiting for the flame out.

No one wants to address the real problem.........

The glorification of crime......

The exultation of the "gangsta"

the degradation of personal responsibility and respect for other people......

The crimes perpetrated on each other in these black communities.........

This stuff happens and people run around calling for more killings and destroying each other properties.......

yeah its the fault of the "police"

I saw a video on another thread of someone (victim possibly) pulling a gun or what looked liked one. It really wont matter whether he had a gun or not. The blacklifesmatter people will always make excuses for the victims. Even though most of the guys like brown, rice, garner, and this guy where either inciting conflict or resisting.

It is as if we all should feel sorry for these guys. They break the law and pay the price but it's everyone else fault.

I do agree police un fairly profile blacks and I could see that causing frustration. That certainly needs to change. I also think that when involved with LEO blacks need to handle themselves better. They need to channel their anger in other ways. CHesting up to a LEO is a lose-lose. Assualting a cop (brown), resisting arrest (garner), Pointing a gun, etc all will lead to more death.

Laslty with cops getting killed in retribution I dare say cops are going to be even more trigger happy then before.

Let the SHapton, Holder, Obama, circus begin yet again.

As Opeth said, there's already a good sized thread on this incident going. Pictures, video, commentary, witticisms, etc.

Very true! Considering a mojority of young black men learn their values on the street and not in the home things will only get worse. It's easier to make excuses for their plight then to take responsibility and make positive changes.

On a side note I personally think many blacks thought when Obama was elected that their lives would change for the better. 6 years later many are finding they are worse off. Im sure this add's to the anger and frustration these young men have towards the system and society as a whole.

Others hate me. They say I deserved it. Other people, I can hear them mocking me for when I called for an end to the destruction, like I'm a fool for believing in peace
