Justified in every way imaginable.

I'm sure some of the usual suspects will be in to defend the criminal though.

Check my edit.

Anyway all you got to do is copy the numbers and letters after the "v=" in youtube link and in reply hit the youtube button and paste that.

Doubt it. This thread is from (edit) Sunday morning and hasn't gotten much play. I doubt that video is going to change that haha

So that makes what ? 5001 people killed by police since
9-11-2001. More Americans than we lost in Iraq.
400 + this year alone.

How many police officers killed ? 10 ? 20 ? 30 ?
Can you imagine what military gear the Police would have received
if the numbers were reversed and citizens had killed 400 cops
this year ? Think about these numbers.

If they won't wear cameras we the people need to have them for
every police interaction. Traffic stops and all.

668 officers have died since January 2002 by felonious assault. I didn't include anything from 2001, since 9/11 would skew that number significantly. Also, so far this year there's 14 officers killed by gunfire. I couldn't find anything about stabbings, beatings, etc.

So, no. "10" would be a slight under exaggeration.

Thank you for that Shamrock, I stand corrected.
I still feel the same about Police aggression of course.

What is the relevance to this particular case? Please watch the vid posted above if you haven't already.

Are you really going to try to defend the actions of the 'victim' here? Was he not attacking the officer? If you have reason to believe he was simply performing a ritual act of contrition or surrender then please share that reason with us. Don't forget to explain how the officer should have recognized it as such.

That guy got closer to the officer than he would have if I were that cop.

Understood, and agreed.

But one thing I never see when that number is tossed out is "how many were engaged in violent felonious activity?"

I don't deny for one second that there's instances of unjustified homicide (ie the North Charleston shooting), but I can't help but notice every time that "4,000 dead since 9/11" statistic gets trotted out, there's no mention of how many were armed versus unarmed

Yeah he violated the 21 foot rule.

He did not want to hurt or kill him.

No doubt. His first move was to retreat.

Afterwards he was obviously disturbed by the event.

yeah stats on police shootings or assault on police seem incredibly tough to come by.
I can't tell whether the police deaths are all shooter scenarios or if they count
hot pursuit auto accidents and other non firearm incidents.
We can be sure someone has all the stats they just aren't public.
