Isn't the right to bare arms the reason your country is in this mess. The fact that you feel this makes you safer is crazy to the rest of the world outside the US.
If you truly believe society would function better without the police, then there is little hope for you. The reason you didn't need police when america "started" was because settlers were not criminals.
How else can you enforce the law? This is gonna be priceless
This video shows a frame-by-frame explanation of the shooting of Dillon Taylor by an officer of the Salt Lake City Police Department. Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill gave this detailed explanation at a press conference on Sept. 30, 2014.
Taylor was facing a $25,000 arrest warrant for allegedly violating probation he received for robbery and obstructing justice; he was arrested July 31 in North Salt Lake for being drunk and interfering with the arresting officer, according to an affidavit filed with the court.
Taylor also had failed to maintain full employment, complete a mental health evaluation or complete a substance abuse evaluation, all conditions of his probation, according to the affidavit.
Taylor expressed an intense feeling of doom, and determination not to go back to jail as a result of the warrant, issued Aug. 7.
"I feel my time is coming soon, my nightmears [sic] are telling me," he wrote that day on Facebook. "ALL my family has turned and snitched on me. I'll die before I go do a lot of time in a cell. I'm trying to strive and live but [I'm] done litrerly [can't] stand breathing and dealing with s—-. I feel like god [can't] even save me on this one. ... this time [it's] me and the demons [I'm] fighting."
Third District Court records show that Taylor pleaded guilty to a reduced count of second-degree felony robbery in connection to thefts at a Beto's restaurant and another 7-Eleven
Isn't the guy a police officer because he is willing to put his life on the line? Isnt that the reason he has a weapon,taser, ect... I dont want a police officer who is not willing to die in the line of duty. Just like I dont want a Marine who isnt afraid to die in the line of duty. Its part of the responsibility of the profession. Dont speak on behalf of everybody, you'll see you dont have the support of everyone. I didnt see a weapon either.

I'm on the fence on this one. Does anyone know the law as far as showing your hands?
He kept his hands in his waistband the whole time.
He didn't pull a gun. Does a gun have to be visible?
Did they guy have enough time to hear him?
Could he understand and comprehend the cop?
Scary Video there!
HE yelled "NAH FOOL" when the police asked him to raise his hands... then his mistake was raising his shirt near the waistband.
RIP....... its a tough thug life...fooo
Do you mean to say that he shouldn't have removed his hands away from his pockets?
Did you see any sign of a weapon?
I didn't. But then again, if it were me, I'd most likely have my day in court.
Buddy, do your family a favor and never be a cop. When you see the "sign" of a weapon... you are dead.
Buddy, do society a favor.... the rest of us want policemen that are not willing to die. We want homes that are not home invaded because of a weak police force... we want our kids to be able to walk from school to home. Do us a favor and think about your beliefs.... because the wide portion of society appreciate cops.
