Wow, RIP, no words...

Updates: local news is saying it's not racially motivated as earlier suspected.

Also, more protests:

PASCO, Wash. - Residents angry that police shot and killed an orchard worker accused of throwing rocks at officers are planning more protests in an agricultural area of southeastern Washington.

In the westbank the IsraelI soldiers use tear gas and rubber bullets to stop people throwing rocks at them.

In America the police use bullets.

Yahoo! News posted a video of this... the man is fully running away from the police, he runs across the street and down the sidewalk before being gunned down dead.

Obviously "a suicide by throwing stones" ...

Send these cops to serve at IDS (Israeli Defence Forces) who are better known to shoot to kill any stone throwing unarmed persons - and in Palestine more often these are kids (hence won't run that fast, and are easier to hit - big bonus).

Metzger said he did not know whether a weapon was found.


What freakin difference would it make if he had a plasma rifle in his pocket?

Disgusting.

Because if they find a weapon or any past drug use then they can start the demonizing. And half of ATS and the country will go "yup...yup....he deserved it then".

A rock can easily kill if it hit the head! Whenever someone throw rocks at me and I'm armed, for sure I will open fire at him!!!

Anything bigger than a small "gravel" rock have good chance to kill you if it hit your head.

OK, maybe I'm wrong... Then why not allow me to throw at your head a 1lb rock and see what is the outcome!

My bad...

What about a little kid throwing a rock? Would you blast them away too? How about if someone is throwing snowballs? Would you go all death wish on them? If 3 grown ass men can't subdue one guy throwing rocks they don't deserve to be called men.

I don't know what the problem here, but as I said why don't you let me throw at your head a 1lb rock and see what is the outcome? If you survive I promise I will retract publicly myself and pay you a beer...

ETA: Maybe two!

Unless you are totally useless without a gun you'd be able to get him down on the ground without shooting, especially if there is three of you. And yes I had a rock thrown at me before, guess what I'm still here.

Sir, may I suggest that we're speaking about "real" rock and not "gravel" taken from road. I have had "gravel" throw at me at no real hurt, but we're speaking here of real "piece"...

But if your OK to be taken down as a receiver for a "brick" it is OK for you sir, I respect your choice to die and let your attacker live!

But if you throw that brick at me, be prepared sir to receive a "double tap"...

I live in a part of the world where there was extreme violence in the not too distant past and still some today. Trust me when I tell you rocks was not the worst thrown. All I can tell is that you are the type of person that needs a gun to validate themselves, take it away and you'd probably run a mile from any conflict. If these men had a set between them they would have done their job properly without gunning him down.

In one post you go from 'gravel' to 'real rock' and you end up at 'brick'.

At the time the dude was shot dead, he did not have gravel, rock or a brick in his hand.

He was unarmed, hands open, arms wide and they shot him like a dog.

End of story.

Murder is murder.
