Seriously? Did you even read the OP? The dude is dead. He died of...wait for it...gunshot wounds.

Its bad enough worrying about getting shot by some creep while driving down the highway or home invasion, But now you have to worry about some Creepy predator Pig force trying to kill you for accommodation and kicks.
You're just not safe in this world unless you have a tactical team working for you to take out both threats
So be it

This is why I BEG PEOPLE TO OBEY THESE POLICE. Get out of it with your life THEY WILL KILLL YOU
Oh yeah..give up your freedoms, surrender to tyranny and maybe, just maybe you and the people in your life won't be murdered by the state?
You know mate...entire wars have been fought, with many, many 1000's of people willing to pay the ultimate price so the kind of country they want their families to live in, does not descend into some kind of tyrannically oppressive and warped nightmare of state sanctioned and instigated brutality and terrorism.
Some things are worth dying for.
If everyone were to follow your advice, sure less would be murdered...at least at first. But what would be lost in the process, would be a sacrifice too great to bear.
If you submit to terrorism, state sanctioned domestic terrorism included, you deserve no freedom or liberty.
Are you certain you wish to give those up for you and your countrymen?
The shooting of Amadou Diallo occurred on February 4, 1999, when Amadou Diallo, a 22-year-old immigrant from Guinea, was shot and killed by four New York City Police Department plain-clothed officers: Sean Carroll, Richard Murphy, Edward McMellon and Kenneth Boss. The officers fired a combined total of 41 shots, 19 of which struck Diallo, outside his apartment at 1157 Wheeler Avenue in the Soundview section of The Bronx. The four were part of the now-defunct Street Crimes Unit. All four officers were charged with second-degree murder and acquitted at trial in Albany, New York.
Play time is over. These officers are being given a free pass to kill us. For those that think we deserve to die on a whim, I am sorry they view life so callously and that they think their life and the lives of others have no value.

It was mostly ignored by the major media because both involved were white and more importantly the victim wasn't black. The fact that it was a woman cop also played a part, I'm sure. Its kind of a local story for me so I followed it early on. The guy was a drug addict with a suspended license and that's why he ran. So he was stupid which is a recurring theme in most of these high profile media cases. And she was a high strung gung ho officer that wasn't in control which is also a recurring theme. I can't think why she got off, either. But at least it got to trial which is more than some cases that are covered up. I would hope she never wears a badge again and nobody runs afoul of her, she's dangerous. A civil lawsuit may not go in her favor.

Women should not be in positions that get intense. They are well know for their over dramatizations and using their emotions in situations where one should be cool headed. I know I may get some heat by women for saying this, but we all know it's true...and I am sure they will just make my point for me anyway.
