Dylann Roof doesn't represent the 240 million Christians in this country.
This guy doesn't represent the 1.6 billion Muslims.
Our military is not trained to shoot civilians in any country center mass unless our lives are in absolute danger. Why is the police given so much more leeway?
The guy could have been high on mushrooms or bath salts, or he could have been deaf or retarded. Or he could have wanted to commit suicide and the officer just helped him out and did it for him.
However you look at it, the fact is he was wearing flip flops and moving at a speed of about a foot per second. The officer had PLENTY of time to shoot out both his knees or all four limbs if he wanted to and this guy would be alive today, even without a kneecap or two.
