People who cry racist..... should be shown what racism is. it would do them some good and help them formulate better thoughts.
They should be forced to live it .

There is nothing wrong with separate but equal...... maybe we need to try it. Maybe if we get out of each others way instead of forcing ourselves on each other....... we will all be a lot happier

Where can I go to find knife attack facts? Cops shoot TO KILL (or try to) in almost every situation. Very cowardly.. regardless of "knife facts".



No they don't. That's just your uninformed opinion on that matter.

Let me know when you've looked up what real knife attacks look like, how fast they can happen, and how deadly they can be.

Until then your cute little opinion on the matter is just childish BS from someone who doesn't understand life and death situations.


There are so many variables, that in any given situation, what we say can be nothing more than OPINION. My OPINION is that police often use deadly force, when deadly force is not needed. To me, the reason they do this is either COWARDNESS or SADISM or HATE.


Your confusion is from the result of how police are trained. Police are trained to stop the perpetrator by shooting center mass. Holes in the heart/lung region usually do the trick and the perpetrator is stopped but, unfortunately, they are also often fatal. It is not as quick to stop as a shot to the central nervous system, but the idea is to go for the best chance of hits during the heat of combat when nothing goes as planned, marksmen miss targets, adrenalin is pumping, and fight or flight imperatives demand action. It is difficult to stop someone with a knife at close range and the officer was in danger. That danger increased dramatically as the knife wielder got closer to the officer. At about 20 feet separation, there was a good chance that the officer would have been cut without a headshot.....but non-SWAT officers are trained for center-mass.
The idiots who wail about leg shots have no idea what they are talking about. Legs are even easier to miss than people and leg shots can be fatal if an artery is hit.
The officer was completely justified in shooting the Aloha Snackbar perpetrator and preventing further carnage. Now, the next thing is to figure out who pulled the fire alarm to set up the students for easy attack.

Anyone who has taken a gun safety class shoots to kill. A gun is a deadly weapon. If cop or citizen decides that deadly force is needed you shoot to kill or you have no business carrying.

Again, this hero cop stopped a terror attack within a minute of it starting. I bet you would be singing a different song if you had been next in line for the blade! SMH

Hey, the cop missed his knife hand and hit him in the face.

Unfortunate accident.

Oh well, back to the shooting range.


ETA; oh and F that loser film maker.

Consider this, If all the elements of this story were inverted...

Say it was a white filmmaker who was criticizing a black police officer for being hailed as a hero for killing a white attacker.

Not only would he be called a racist, not only would his comments consume the airtime on the MSM, but he would also lose his job, his credibility, and any future he ever had in the film industry.

Now I'm not saying that I agree with that, but it's an important hypocrisy to point out that's blatant in our society.

Shoot them in the leg.. wound them? Yeah, and it an artery and still be a racist cop for killing a murderer. Center mass... its where you shoot. Legs, arms and heads are too hard to hit and you might wound an innocent. People watch too many movies .

I still havent heard what this jihadist had in his car that went boom or was it something from the officers on scene? I mean you dont carry around flashbangs in your pocket everywhere.

The OP : the filmmaker.. if we can call him that.. is just a racist trying to make money off of the dead bodies of others. Sick racist ghouls coming out of the woodwork these days.

What an "impressive" Resume he has.

Sounds like he's lost to "the culture".

So the Somali student who committed an Islamic State inspired terrorist attack with a machete was gunned down by a police officer, who's job it is to protect and serve. Why wouldn't that officer, or his entire precinct, be hailed as heroes?


Because according to the left there is nothing worse than being white.


Wrong, the only thing worse than being white is being a police officer, the one profession where race is blurred according to the left. It's almost like "cop" is now a separate race regardless of the actual officer's skin color.

This racism crap is for the birds.

I am a white man and not ashamed of it.

My wife is a black woman and she is not ashamed of it.

We live with three cats and a dog.

Not only are we interracial, we are interspecies as well.


If our families can get along....... so can everyone else.

Just to keep the record straight, as if it really matters anyway, for those interested in history of various ethnicities, of Africa, it appears to me from the photos on CNN that the knife wielding Somali was not, strictly speaking, "black".

Somalia is a complex, multicultural affair having long been dominated by traders, rulers and builders from nearby Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Qatar. See: www.nationsencyclopedia.com...

At this article, you'll see a photo of young Somali girls in school:
en.wikipedia.org...

You'll probably recognize that they do not exhibit "African black" features typical of say, Tanzania or even neighboring Kenya.

Having lived in Africa and being fascinated by its different peoples, I just thought I'd throw that tidbit out.

Most US Americans have been led to believe that all Somalis are "black" because of their having been prominently featured in the movie "Black Hawk Down". While it is the case that there are many "blacks" living in Somalia, they do not represent the majority of the society; I'm not sure there really IS a majority ethnic group in Somalia, but if there were, I'd suspect its Arabian.

Thanks

It really just goes to show you where the minds of the Alt-Left voters truly are.


yeah right.....one guy comes out and says that and, according to you, ALL LEFT VOTERS AGREE....how narrow minded can you be with that statement, it's simply a lie....

You mean like how this guy lied about using his Twitter to say that he thought this story was a made up lie?

Way to hop on the bandwagon a bit too late.

Notice I distinguished between the left and the alt-left.

This man has obvious alt-left ideals. The alt-left has worshipped Hillary and continues to undermine democracy at every corner.

this guys is a piece of crap to me also...the campus policeman was a hero, period. but, don't use some broad association of entire groups of people to make a case. "worshipping Hillary"...."undermining democracy"...save the hyperbolic and false phrases for the next election.

So he said it was "interesting".

And he's not allowed to have that opinion? Who cares what this guy thinks, he's not the leader of the Democratic party or something.

Seriously, this is being just as ridiculous as the oversensitive SJW types.

Anti-PC people being "triggered" ...



No. You don't get to accuse someone of being overly sensitive or being "triggered" anytime someone reacts to something or becomes upset about something. That's not how it works. Nice try.

People actually have a good reason to be upset here. Students running and crying to school administration saying "Can't you see?! We are IN PAIN!? DO SOMETHING!!!" because somebody put up a Trump sign on the wall... that's being overly sensitive and triggered.

Nobody here is crying out in pain over this. They are just calling him an asshole. Get real. Seriously. Get a grip on reality. You can't just jump up pointing fingers saying "triggered", "overly sensitive"! anytime somebody reacts to something in a negative manner. Your definitions of words and concepts are way out of touch... but I think you know that. I think youre doing it on purpose.
